On this week’s show, we start off by talking about our past weeks in video games, and then we move right onto talk about our Blizzard Entertainment discussions. We start everything off talking about Blizzard not being at E3, the Hearthstone Grandmasters, Storm League has been delayed, and then we move onto talking about World of Warcraft. This week in Warcraft we talk about the Character Level Squish surveries, the Island Twink Leveling Nerf, and the arrival of Patch 8.2.

Here are a few ways you can do that!


Last week was the massive gaming expo E3, and once again this year Blizzard was not in attendance. But for the way things have been going, it appears that once again they are saving up everything they have for a large announcement at BlizzCon this fall. And since they haven’t been to E3 in years, it seem normal for them to not be there again this year. Even though it’s the Electronic Entertainment Expo, and a lot of games are showcased, E3 is still a trade show for vendors. Find out more about everything that was announced at E3 here!

This past weekend there was $250,000 up on the line for the best player in Hearthstone as the Grand Masters Tour went to Las Vegas. Even though there wasn’t much hype about the tournament, it appears that it brought it a pretty big crowd that was hyped about a lot of Mage play going on (okay, so maybe just Epic!). Find out the results here.

It’s not often that the gaming community is supportive of things being delayed, but the Heroes of the Storm community has been very supportive with the delay of Storm League. And according to the folks on Reddit, it seems that the community is happy to see Blizzard focusing on fixing other aspects of heroes like: Visible Direct MMR To Rank-Point Mapping, Adjusted Decay System, Reduced Placement Matches, Seasonal Questline and Promotion/Demotion Games Removed. And once these things have been fixed/adjusted Blizzard will roll out the Storm League!

It’s been a busy week in the Warcraft camp, and we had a lot to talk about on this weeks show. We talked about the Surveys that Blizzard emailed out to random World of Warcraft subscribers asking them about their knowledge about an upcoming Character Level Squish. And this survey has caused more concern than it gave answers. Could a level squish be coming in Patch 9.0?

And then right before we went to record the show, it was discovered on the PTR that there is a XP Nerf coming to those players choosing to shut their XP off at level 110. And this nerf actually would effect those people grouped with those people who decided to shut off their XP. It’s definitely a developing story, so there may be more updates on the show in the future.

And lastly, it appears that the PTR may have got its first release candidate for Patch 8.2. So what does that all mean? And when will Patch 8.2 be hitting live servers?!
