Blizzard Umbrella #1 : Battle Tokens!


Dusty is joined by his new Co-Host, Ryan, as the show makes it return to the podcast and gaming community. 

What We’re Up to:

Dusty has been playing lots of Hearthstone while dabbling in some WoW, Overwatch, and HotS, and Ryan has been concentrating on Nighthold progression with his raid team.  The talks swings to Nighthold raiding and its comparison to EN and Tov.  How are set bonuses right now and legendary items?  What classes are we playing currently and Dusty touches on how he likes to spend his time on Hearthstone.

Battle Tokens:

Dusty and Ryan discuss the implications of the new Battle.Net balance from Battle Tokens. Under the old system tokens only gave game time and gold but the new system offers so much more.  The $15 balance can be used in all of Blizzard’s games.  What does this mean for Blizzard, the players, and WoW’s in game economy?  Will this pull money out of an over saturated WoW economy?  Will players actually use these services and is the $5 Blizzard keeps a good or bad thing?  All of this discussed.
