WoW! Talk! #200: What Are We Even Talking About?
We celebrate 200 episodes by calling for more WoW content and a better Community Council and complaining about Gremlins....
Nick, Rei, and Harv are back to talk about what’s been going on with Activision-Blizzard lately. Nick begins by complaining about Christie Golden getting dragged on reddit. Then, Rei talks about her experiences raiding with the other guild, and how they seem to be pulling away. She also talks about people struggling to get through phase one of a fight and getting no experience on phase three. She and Nick talk about people not doing enough outside of raid to gear up. She also talks about Eric raiding with the group again, now as a Warlock DPS instead of tanking. Also, her black dragonscale backpack has been delayed.
Harv talks about buying games off steam and being too busy at work to play much WoW. He also mentions how people that he knows outside the game are asking him about what is going on with Activision-Blizzard.
Nick goes on a rant about how he wants to defend Activision-Blizzard usually but even he is openly against what they are doing. He talks about the recent layoffs at Raven and also how BlizzJess quit Blizzard. He talks about how the company has been completely mishandling the situation, making it worse, and running the community off. He mentions that he’s been playing Korthia after a several month break and he’s been enjoying it. He also talks about how Blizzard needs to get better about telling stories in the age of datamining and how the slow and protacted telling of the story of Shadowlands has hurt the expansion.

Chris has been playing World of Warcraft since 2007. When he's not playing his hunter in Azeroth, he's probably playing one of his many alt hunters. If not doing that, he's probably playing a different hunter.
