Our Summer Vacation
Rei is healing others, Harv is healing himself, Eric is almost ahead of the curve, and Nick is boosted and angry....
Nick, Rei, Harv, and Eric are back to talk about what’s going on in World of Warcraft, with a brief look at Diablo Immortal as well. First, Rei talks about how when people commit to raids, they need to show up on time and be respectful of everyone else’s schedules, as people who need to leave early then lose time raiding. Then she talks about how some people need to leave for emergencies but that shouldn’t happen all that often. She tells a story about a pug who got his summon and then immediately left the group.
Eric talks about the guild getting past Heroic Anduin and how the guild has been struggling with PUG tanks, as tanking requires a great deal of communication between the main and off tanks.
Harv and Nick talk about Diablo Immortal and how they are still enjoying it, but only in small chunks of time. Nick talks about how the game has made $24 million and people are distrustful of Blizzard with respect to Diablo IV’s monetization. Nick argues that Diablo Immortal should not have been released on PC, as it set the wrong expectations for the game. He explains that the game is currently unable to be released in China.
Nick then talks about the Activision Blizzard board finding no evidence that the executives ignored the harassment allegations. No one is surprised by this news and he expresses disappointment that the company is unable to reckon with its own guilt.
In the news, Dragonflight is on the internal Blizzard alpha catalog and David Harbour embarrassingly admitted to playing WoW in a Stranger Things interview.
Finally, we look back at episode #115.
