WoW! Talk! #195: Hard Knocks: Blizzard
Nick figures out how Blizzard can fix their perception problems with the community: Hard Knocks: Blizzard!...
Nick, Rei, Harv, and Eric are back this week to talk about World of Warcraft! First, Rei talks about how she’s been busy hiking and hasn’t had the usual time to play. Eric talks about how Order of Corrupted Souls has been stuck at Soulrender in Heroic Sanctum of Domination, so they went and basically one-shot the normal raid, only dying to trash. Harv talks about some of the cinematics he gets stuck watching when he is raiding.
Nick talks about the recent announcement of the WoW and Hearthstone cross promotion, with a 6-month subscription to WoW granting card packs, a tavern pass, and battleground perks in Hearthstone. Nick is excited for this as he plays enough Hearthstone to make it worth his while. He also talks about the Sarge mouse mount that will be available October 12th and can be earned by playing the new mercenaries mode in Hearthstone.
Next, they talk about a recent letter from the top Alliance guilds on reddit, discussing the faction imbalance and how high-end players are increasingly going Horde. Rei talks about how, while OoCS hasn’t seen any consequences of this, players can find the competetive style difficult to keep up with. Nick talks about how the Horde Hall of Fame for Sanctum of Domination has been closed for a month, and yet the Alliance Hall of Fame is only at 92. They then discuss the possibility that Blizzard could lift the faction divide in 10.0. They also talk about how Blizzard could consider adding player housing to maintain interest in the game in the next expansion.
