The Negativity Around Activision-Blizzard
The gang discusses how the negativity around Activision-Blizzard has been affecting the community....
Nick, Rei, and Harv are back to talk about World of Warcraft and Activision-Blizzard this week! First, Rei talks about raiding with the other guild and how they and Order of Corrupted Souls are getting along. They are currently working on defeating Sylvanas. She talks about the struggles as a healer when certain players die too much. There were some issues with identifying the raid markers and what order they were intended to represent. She also shares a rant about the rules for wearing shoes at her house.
Harv talks about how he ran some dungeons with the other group. This leads to a discussion about carrying alts and what level of gear is appropriate, as well as determining who can bring an alt and who needs to bring a main to carry. They also talk about gearing up low ilvl characters. Harv mentions that he has cleared Soulrender. Rei tells a story about how people thought she was mad because she accidentally cut a stream short.
In the news, Nick talks about the recent allegations of harassment against Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. He talks about how Bobby is at his most vulnerable right now, and yet still may be able to survive this controversy. He endorses the #firebobbykotick hashtag.
Also, Patch 9.2 was announced. The gang discusses some of the news about Zereth Mortis and the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid. They also talk about the Warlock tier set looking a bit racist from behind.
Finally, Harv and Nick talk about episode #98 which was about a certain person who raided with OoCS and has not returned.

Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
Rei is the 1 of the 5 SEELE members and the Ops Director at MTB. She enjoys anime, baking, cooking, gaming ( fighting, puzzle, rhythm, RPGs ), and spending WAY too much time working on spreadsheets. Current Games: Tales of Crestoria, WoW
Auto mechanic, car enthusiast, gamer, runner and almost never serious, Eric has been ditching responsibilities and gaming since age 7. His favorite genres are FPS and racing, although most of his game time is currently spent on WoW
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.
At long last, we meet Chief Hekarro.
It's our last amusingly numbered episode for a while. We're mostly talking 6.2, and anecdotes. Minimal dalmations.
This week, the Spicy Bois talk about the new Gun Run LTM, patch notes, and Loba's heirloom.
Bob and Mel get the pleasure of talking with one of the lead software engineers for Classic Wow, Brian Birmingham!
