WoW! Talk! #203: The Microsoft Acquisition (feat. Jarret and Mike)
Jarret and Mike (formely of Watchpoint Radio) join Nick to talk about the Microsoft acquisition because WHAT THE F***???...
Nick and Rei and back this week while Harv is out sick to talk about what’s going on with World of Warcraft. First, Rei talks about an internet outage in the Northeast that affected raid night last week. Then, she talks about having a friend who was staying with them and assigning him the task of finding people to PUG with. They also had struggles with people not being around for the holiday week, and PUG’s coming and leaving for certain bosses. Rei also mentions how some people were not able to beat certain bosses because they weren’t putting in the time other than raid night to make sure they were ready to raid and beat the bosses. They also talk about the Mage Tower and Nick says that when it comes back, it should come back for a month at a time just so people have time to build momentum when practicing.
Nick talks about his new years goals, including his goals for 2021 that he finished the Korthia campaign questlines. He mentions that his goals for 2022 include getting to renown 80 with Maldraxxus and finishing the covenant questlines. That leads to this week’s question of the week being What Are Your Goals for 2022 in World of Warcraft?
In the news, The Darkmoon Faire has been delayed by a week. Also, Mythic and Raidfinder testing for the Sepulcher of the First Ones begins this week. They also talk about the A Better ABK Strike Fund that was set up as a gofundme to support the striking ABK workers who are protesting the layoffs of 20 Raven QA workers.
Finally, they take a look back at episode #101 from October 2018.
