Raiding and Patch 9.1.5 Drama
Anima is plentiful in Korthia, but Blizzard's history of waiting to improve the game can be annoying....
Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv are back this week to talk about all the latest goings on in the World of Warcraft community! First, Rei talks about what she’s been doing in game. She talks about how she’s been working on her professions, and how the tool to check guild member’s professions has been fixed. This leads to a discussion of online chat and how people need to be in the chat program to respond to requests to do stuff in game. The group also goes off on a tangent talking about keyboards and typing speeds.
Eric talks about how the guild has beaten Normal Sylvanas and Heroic Terragrue. Nick asks if anyone got Sylvanas’ bow, and this leads to a discussion about non-hunters using the bow and letting it split into glaives like in the cinematic.
Harv, meanwhile, has been enjoying the raid. He mentions that he likes the Kael’thas fight as there’s alot of AOE for him to burn down. They also talk about when to cast herolust and talk about raid mechanics from prior raids including Jaina in the Battle of Dazar’Alor.
Nick talks about the recent events surrounding Blizzard. J Allen Brack has resigned and has been replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra. There has been no acknowledgement by Activision Blizzard of the employee’s demands. Nick mentions that Luis Barriga, Jesse McCree, and Jonathan LeCraft are no longer with Blizzard. He talks about how there is currently a stalemate where the company is not acknowledging demands and that is how the company wants it as they are hoping to wait out the employees.
They also discuss an article that compares the toxicity in WoW and Final Fantasy XIV and says that Square Enix did a better job of moderating their community early on to keep it clean, and it has paid off.
Finally, they discuss episode #92 where murlocs seemed like they might be playable.

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. 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.
Its a wild ride this week, strap in!
Rei talks about dealing with guildies who keep missing raid, while everyone enjoys the Love is in the Air update.
A competitive "Avatar" fighting game, DBFZ anticipates updates, Max receives the Legacy Award, and Capcom Cup discussion.
