Blizzard Umbrella #32: Blizzcon Merch, Overwatch Sales Records, and Junkrat to the Nexus!

Intro:

This week Blizzard Umbrella is back for the thirtieth.  The guys have both been extremely busy on the show, off the show, in game, and out of game.  This week the guys are excited to talk about a lot of the news coming out of the Blizzard camp.  This week the guys talk Blizzcon merch sale, BC timewalking, HCT, Overwatch hero updates, Junkrat in the Nexus, WCS finals, Destiny 2, and much more.   The website is up and running and you can find it at www.theblizzardumbrella.com to find out about the show and the guys.

What We’ve Been Up To:

This past week Dusty has been playing a lot of Hearthstone.  As well as Hearthstone Dusty spent some time watching the HGC tournament, leveling some alts in WoW, and playing some HotS.

Ryan, like Dusty mentioned, has been leveling his rogue.  Outside of the Rogue Ryan didn’t have a ton of time to play games due to school, but managed to raid one night, try out the Halloween event in Overwatch, and did some Destiny 2 raid.

Blizzard:

Blizzard recently announced that the countries of New Zealand, Japan, and Canada will soon be seeing all costs in their own currencies instead of the standard USD.  This is the beginning of what Blizzard hopes to do for all countries with Blizzard gamers.

The Blizzcon merch sale is now open to all players.  The guys talk about all the cool stuff they like.

The Blizzard annual pumpkin carving contest is now open to contestants.  The guys take a look at some of the past entries and mention how good some of them are.

World of Warcraft:

In the World of Warcraft KJ saw some nerfs overall.

The guys also talk about BC timewalking coming back around and whether or not they will jump into Black Temple.  Ryan says once was enough.

Ryan also takes some time to discuss the mechanics behind the new legendary trinkets and its epic counterparts from the upcoming raid.

Hearthstone:

Dusty talks about the HCT Summer Championships and how his picks did.  He also discusses with Ryan about their thoughts on how much does the new Blizzard Arena add to the viewing experience.

Beyond the HCT tournament, Dusty talks about the new warlock hero Nemsy Necrofizzle and some of the controversy behind how players can acquire her.

Dusty also discusses some of the free goodies players can get and his favorite, the Gone Fishin’ card back.

Overwatch:

This past week in Overwatch Ryan talks about the changes that both Lucio and Mercy received. Lucio had his wall speed increased and Mercy saw a change to her rez in combination with her ult.

Ryan also talks about the recent sales record Overwatch just hit with 35 million sales.

Also a side note, a recent petition was signed by 10k players to force Blizzard to reveal loot box chances in light of some recent pushes to change legislation to treat some in game micro sales with the same rules as gambling.

Heroes:

Dusty mentions that both Junkrat and the Hallows End event are present currently in the Nexus.  He also mentions that right now there are tons of new Halloween skins and that the new horse mount looks amazing.   

Diablo:

Ryan mentions that a rumor has been going around that there might be a Halloween event going on but the guys come to the conclusion that there is not.…….sad news.

Starcraft:

For once, Dusty talks about Starcraft in regards to the recent announcement that the WCS finals will be Oct 27th – Nov 4th.   

Destiny 2:

Ryan finishes off the show with some Destiny 2 talk.  Players can expect to see a new Nightfall strike, Exodus Crash. 

Ryan also mentions that recently Bungee removed the High kick emote due to players being able to glitch themselves into areas that players aren’t supposed to be able to access with it.

The guys also express some hype for the Oct 24th PC release

PC Min Spec Requirements: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/destiny-2s-pc-release-date-spec-requirements-serve/1100-6450248/

 

 

Ryan fails:

 

Ryan fails with an impromptu quiz for Dusty.  He asked Dusty how many raids were in Wrath.  He told Dusty 6 only to change to 7 but in fact after recording Ryan realized there was in fact 9.  BIG FAIL!

 

Fun was had though.

Blizzard Umbrella #30: Blizzard App, Mythic Dungeon Invitational, Jeff Kaplan Addresses Blue Posts, Ana and Volskaya Foundry, and Destiny 2!

Intro:

This week Blizzard Umbrella is back for the thirtieth.  The guys have both been extremely busy on the show, off the show, in game, and out of game.  This week the guys are excited to talk about a lot of the news coming out of the Blizzard camp.  Dusty and Ryan are both excited to be back on the podcasting horse.  This week the guys talk the Battle.net app, the Mythic Dungeon Invitational, some Overwatch e-sports, a new hero and map to Heroes, Destiny 2, and more.   The website is up and running and you can find it at www.theblizzardumbrella.com to find out about the show and the guys.

What We’ve Been Up To:

Since the last episode the guys have both been busy dealing with the various curve ball life likes to throw sometimes.  They have managed to play some games and are excited to be back recording episodes and talking all things Blizzard.

Ryan is in a new guild and raiding some Mythic Tomb of Sargeras.  Other than ToS Ryan has been playing some alts, the occasional game of Hearthstone, Overwatch, and Destiny 2.

Dusty has largely taken a small break from games but has managed to play some Hearthstone, D3, and Wow.  He’s feeling good to be back into the swing of playing some games and couldn’t be more excited to be talking shop on the Blizzard Umbrella.

Blizzard:

Blizzard finally releases the much awaited Battle.net app that players can use to message via their mobile the devices.  Both the guys briefly weigh in.

World of Warcraft:

In the world of Warcraft the 5 man team named Free Marsy takes home 1st place in the Mythic Dungeon Invitational and the guys are happy to wish them the biggest of congratulations.

The also briefly talk the Netherlight Crucible, Argus, the anticipated Antorus, and the Turalyon and Alleria audio drama.

The guys both absolutely loved the new audio drama and wish that Blizzard would do more of this.

Rounding out the WoW discussion the guys discuss their speculations on the timeframe and announcement for the next expansion.

Hearthstone:

Dusty mentions that sense the last show, Druid amongst a few other classes have been nerfed and briefly brushes over some of these class changes. 

Dusty also talks about the pacing of the expansions in Hearthstone and the feeling about new content from the community.

To close out the Hearthstone talk Dusty mentions the situation that arose from the recent US tournament and the disconnects they dealt with.  From this situation, Dusty feels like there is an opportunity for Blizzard to learn because it is not something a company of Blizzard’s magnitude should have happen.

Overwatch:

In Overwatch a Russian player who is crucial to their teams strategy has been denied a Visa into ths US.  This means that he may miss their October 7th match in LA.

Also in Overwatch news was an article and a post from Jeff Kaplan talking about the lack of blue posts from the Overwatch Dev team.  Kaplan went on to mention that the toxic attitude of the community and the speed and ease in which players call for the heads of developers is a big deterrent for developers from wanting to respond to questions and posts from the community.  Ryan talks for a moment about the need for players to be more productive and respectful in their approach to expressing themselves and responding to feed back from the devs.

Heroes:

In Heroes news, there is a new map and a new map and a new hero.  The new map is Volskaya Foundry and the new hero is Ana.  Both hail from the Overwatch realm.  Dusty talks about his time trying out Ana and the fact that he really enjoys her gameplay.   

Diablo:

Recently Blizzard announced that this year at Blizzcon there will be no big Diablo announcements

Destiny 2:

The guys take a few minutes to talk about their thoughts on the current status of Destiny 2 and the current content available to players.
