Blizzard Umbrella #17 : Concordiance, Grilled, and Collomboration, that's what I have to say.  Destiny 2, Overwatch development league, and WoW artifact knowledge!

Intro:

This week Blizzard Umbrella is back for the seventeenth recording.  The guys have both been hard at work both on the show, off the show, in game, and out of game.  This week the guys are talking about some of the exciting news coming out of Blizzard.  Destiny 2, the Overwatch development league, the Overwatch event, 2.0,  and some more changes with WoW.  The website is up and running and you can find it at www.theblizzardumbrella.com to find out about the show and what they have been up to. 

What we’ve been up to:

This week Ryan went with Dusty to get their Riddler's mount, play some Heroes, and try out some PUBG!  Ryan's guild has changed up their format to one raid day they do a fun day where they either do old content or acheivement focused raiding and the other day they do progression.  This past week they went back and did some Mythic EN and had a blast. 

Dusty really enjoyed going back and doing some older content and getting the Riddler's mount.  Outside of WoW Dusty has been playing some Heroes and a lot of Hearthstone.

Overwatch development league:

Ryan feels like this move by Blizzard is a good move.  It appears to be an attempt to mimic how actual professional sports are with their respective farm leagues.  This for Ryan, provides a stepping stone that allows for players to have an easy time to work their way into the professional arena.  It causes for there to a be a much more smooth linear progression from quick play to paid professional.  It will also help to keep the game relevant.  Dusty feels like while some people may have a hard time watching much less understanding what's going on when watching Overwatch, he is really enjoying watching Overwatch.  This Contender's league for Dusty provides a lot more opportunities to watch the game.  It also makes people feel like they actually have a shot at being a “contender”.  In the past, Ryan feels like players had to know people or take huge financial risks to get into the pro scene.  This type of development league allows for people to have an easier time working their way into the scene. 

Artifact Knowledge 40:

The WoW development team has decided to scale back max artifact knowledge from 50 to 40.  Ryan feels like these changes have come from a place where Blizzard didn't necessarily know how much knowledge was going to be necessary to account for the time needed to max out a player's weapon with artifact traits.   A lot of the end game players, however, have been already reaching the Concordance of the Legionfall.  Even casual players aren't too far away from reaching that paragon trait.  Artifact power is obtainable in an increasing array of options.  This has brought about an understanding by Blizzard that artifact knowledge 50 is complete overkill.  There also isn't a large need to put paragon traits into Concordance of the Legionfall as a raider so there is no rush past getting that first point into the trait.  Dusty mentions that Blizzard also is going to allow players who have reached max artifact knowledge to give max artifact knowledge to their alts.  This means that players with that knowledge level will be able to max out their weapon much quicker than normal.  Ryan feels like this is a smart move on Blizzard's part due to players burning out and quitting the game from the AP grind.  This will not only make the need to grind AP be lessened but alsomake gearing and playing alts at an end game level more doable.  Having to redo something like a large grind over again is never something that players should feel like they have to do.  Dusty asks Ryan if he thinks Blizzard will continue to increase traits and artifact knowledge in future patches.  Ryan feels like it is inevitable with the design and fantasy of this expansion.  This will mean that more than likely artifact knowledge will have to go up and players will probably see some more traits with a possible trait squish before giving players more traits.

Destiny 2 hits the Blizzard launcher:

The announcement was made recently that Destiny 2 will be coming to PC exclusively through the Blizzard launcher.  Initially Ryan was indifferent with this news considering it has no bearing on his gaming experience.  Both Dusty and Ryan feel like that the big worry, which has been voiced from the community, is that this opens the door for a lot of non Blizzard games coming to the launcher and effectively turning it into another Steam or Origins type of situation.  Dusty feels like this is a good move on Blizzard's part because it will help to grow their already large community of players across all of their games.  Dusty does however feel like it's not a great move to have the PC version launch so much later than the console version.  Ryan feels like this will remove the first look experience for PC players due to the fact that console players will have a 3 month jump on the PC community.  Both Dusty and Ryan though have been getting more and more excited for this game as they continue to talk about it.  Ryan also mentions per a Blizzard post, there Is no intention at this current time to put any other non Blizzard games on the launcher.

Blizzard Umbrella #16 : We've got guests!  The Blue Recluse guys come to visit!

Intro:

This week Blizzard Umbrella is back for the sixteenth recording.  The guys have both been hard at work both on the show, off the show, in game, and out of game.  This week the guys have guests on the show!  Marty and Michael from The Blue Recluse, have graced Dusty and Ryan with their presence for the show's first ever guest episode.  The website is up and running and you can find it at www.theblizzardumbrella.com to find out about the show and what they have been up to. 

What We’ve Been Up to:

With Michael being the first person on the show that actually plays Starcraft, Ryan and Dusty both comment on how they both love to watch people play Starcraft but neither have really spent much if any time on the game. 

Dusty asks Michael and Marty what their thoughts on HotS 2.0 are.  Marty talks about how he likes the game a lot and he feels that 2.0 has almost been a revival for the game .  He really likes the new progression and loot box system, it's really made the game addicting again and is owed some well deserved praise. Michael feels that 2.0 has seen a bit of face lift to bring the game back into the spotlight and bring people back to the game.  Dusty follows up the guys by talking about how he feels like the game play and everything that comes with 2.0 just all feels good and makes the game very appetizing to play.  Ryan, having come from a bit more of a competitive MOBA background with DOTA and HoN, asks the guys to weigh in on whether they feel that with 2.0 and other crossover events has brought some artificial enticement to the game that causes for the cyclical influx of players to the game or not.   Michael feels that while at face value this is true, Blizzard's underlying intention is not just to get players to the game but try and keep them playing once they have started.  For Marty, the game got an Overwatch treatment with loot, where while he doesn't enjoy competitive Overwatch he still enjoys playing because he enjoys getting the loot boxes.  Dusty talks about how he really loves the feeling he gets when he gets to open loot in games like HotS, Overwatch and Hearthstone. 

Dusty asks the guys what they think the split is between competitive and casual players in games like these.  Michael thinks the proportions are overwhelmingly in favor of the casual player base but the games see cycles of players delving into competitive.  Marty thinks that access to competitive play in team based games like HotS and Overwatch is more in favor of the casual players because trying to be competitive on a solo basis can be challenging.   

As the talk progresses further into the balance of casual and competitive players , Ryan talks about how to not only be a part of a team but also a successful one, the people involved need to have similar goals in mind but also be compatible in the sense that everyone needs to enjoys being around each other.  Marty mentions how a lot of the time when a guild in WoW has an application involved in its' recruitment process, it's there to help filter out people who might not fit in with the group.  Dusty touches on how he feels that Blizzard does a good job catering to both the casual and competitive crowds.

With the Blue Recluse guys joining the show, it only seemed fitting to ask them their history behind their tenurship in the Blizzard universe and what those games have meant for them.  Michael talks about how as a kid he played some of the Blizzard games on his dad's playstation.  When he got older and was able to get his own PC he started really getting into the Blizzard games with Starcraft and Warcraft.  As Michael spent a lot of his youth playing sports because video games were not “cool”, his gaming didn't really take a front seat in his life until he got to go to Blizzcon.  This Blizzcon was the catalyst that brought Michael to his place in the digital community and his seat on The Blue Recluse.  Dusty tells Michael that he, like Michael spent much of his gaming, playing solo until he started doing the show and playing games with Ryan.  This experience has really shown Dusty how enjoyable playing with other people really brings a whole new meaning and enjoyment to games.  Michael agrees that playing games with other people and being a part of a community, big or small, is so much more enjoyable and fruitful. Michael also mentions that being a part of a group really helps to alleviate the annoyances that come with the impatient nature of people in pugs.  Marty chimes in with the comment that while some of the pugging scenes like LFR can be extremely toxic, they are in now way shape or form indicative of what the raid scene has to offer.  Ryan and Michael take the talk over to how Blizzcon really solidified that playing games was who they are and they really like being a part of a community that shares in their same passions.

Marty, with some ribbing of course, admits to his old age in the fact that he started playing Blizzard games with Lost Vikings and has played almost all of the Blizzard games as they have graced the digital community with their presence.  At a point in his life that studying became a priority, Marty took a break from games but got sucked back in with the release of World of Warcraft.  As he came back to the community, he started playing with people from all over Europe.  After spending so much time with these people and forming friendships online with them, the decision was made to do a meetup.  This meetup ended up being something Marty couldn't go to but as a phoenix rises out of the ashes, an opportunity arose when a guild mate decided to come to Marty's neck of the woods for New Years.  As people heard about this more and more joined in on the New Year's fun with each year's passing.  That group still meets up today.  Ryan talks about how he as well has made life long friends from playing these games and still talks to people he made friends with years ago.  People who might not even play anymore. 

While Marty and Michael have both given their stories, Marty graciously tells the guys the story of their third co-host, Tom who was unable to be in attendance.  Tom came to WoW with some people he played another mmo with.  In a happy accident, Tom managed to end up on a different server than the people he came to the game with.  He ended up on Marty's server.  He and Marty met out in the world while questing and the rest is history.  This eventually led to Marty and Tom creating The Blue Recluse.

While Marty and Tom created their show and have been doing it for a while, Michael eventually made his way onto the show as a co-host.  As Marty and Tom realized that bringing someone else on to the show who is of a different mindset or favors different games, they put the word out they were looking for a co-host.  Michael heard the call, answered it, and managed to go from a listener of the show to a now third leg of what is a great show, The Blue Recluse.

Marty and Dusty both feel like the podcasts are a great way for everyone to discuss and fan the flames of their inner nerd.  Marty feels that the podcast has caused for him to be a bit more opinionated and reserved about what games he spends his money on.

Marty talks about the interaction they have with their listeners.  He also tells the guys how he remembers the excitement that came with the first e-mail their show received from a listener.

 

News

Overwatch:  Overwatch will be seeing two books released.  The Art of Overwatch and The Anthology of Overwatch Vol. 1.

WoW:  A recent collection of data has given a very inconsistent number of classes and specs that have been able to conquer their respective challenge appearance events.

Hearthsone: A video by a respected pro player in Hearthstone has been making the rounds lately.  The video talks about two of the biggest problems with Hearthstone, being the cost and the RNG of the game.  This video is receiving a good amount of traction so it will be interesting to see if anything comes of it from Blizzard.

HotS:  D.Va is very close to making her appearance in HotS.

Blizzard Umbrella #15 : Secrets don't make friends Blizzard, or do they?!  New legendaries in WoW?

Intro:

This week Blizzard Umbrella is back for the fifteenth recording.  The guys have both been busy and hard at it with the real life grind but have managed to get another show recorded.  This week the guys talk about some interesting news to come out of China and what does it mean for Blizzard's games.  There's also some talk of more legendaries coming to the World of Warcraft in 7.2.5.The website is up and running and you can find it at www.theblizzardumbrella.com to find out about the show and what they have been up to. 

What We’ve Been Up to:

This past week Ryan and his guild have been working to get some new raid members up to snuff.  His guild has also been working to get the group back into the mythics considering Tomb of Sargeras is probably still a good ways off.  Outside of WoW Ryan has been working hard off the air to get the new podcast ready.  That hard work has paid off as the first recording for the new show about the raiding scene in World of Warcraft will more than likely happen tonight (5.10.17).  Ryan announces that he will announce the launch of the show via the Blizzard Umbrella Twitter right after the recording with the info needed to find the new show.

Dusty has managed to get a bunch of game time in this past week.  He has been working his way up the ladder in Hearthstone and been dabbling with some fun decks.  Dusty also managed to get into a small Overwatch binge in an attempt to climb the ranks in competitive only to find his success washed away in the toxic low ranks.  This experience has Dusty considering holding off from competitive Overwatch until next season in June.  In WoW Dusty has been spending some more time leveling his Demonhunter with his newly acquired ability to fly.  The flying has reinforced Dusty's liking for some of the zones aesthetically, like Highmountain.  The flying has also made some of the World Quests super easy, especially the Kirin Tor ones.  In Heroes of the Storm, Dusty has been continuing to enjoy the awesomeness that is 2.0.  Dusty also is chomping at the bit to play the new Necromancer in Diablo.

Secrets Don't Make Friends Blizzard:

Recently news has made its way around that China has passed a new law that would require Blizzard to divulge the drop chances for items out of loot boxes, card packs, or any other item that could be considered gambling, if it wishes to continue to sell and push their games in China.  While the specifics of this news could very possibly be not entirely accurate it does bring the question of whether or not this could possibly be a good thing to the table.  Considering this news, the guys discuss how this translates to the current state of Blizzard's games when it comes to these items that contain unknown random items.  Dusty feels like this is a good thing considering how much money is actually being spent on these items from players.  Ryan is on the fence because divulging some of this information in some way is a win for the players due to the fact people have been asking for this type of information for quite some time.  On the other hand this causes for Blizzard to have to restructure some of it's business model and marketing strategies as well as some disclaimers due to the inherent liabilities that would come Blizzard's way as players start to realize that on an individual level the drop chances may not reflect accurately.  Ryan also goes as far as to explain that Blizzard would have to do a good job explaining that drop chances apply to an average across the community rather than on an individual player level.  This also will force Blizzard to be a bit more upfront and honest which could be very good for the community Ryan feels.  Dusty notes that there have been a decent amount of conspiracy theories floating around that are almost all guaranteed to be false.  Ryan mentions that because these numbers will have to be given out to the players in China, the numbers will be available to everyone.  With this fact comes the possibility for people to take advantage of the system.  Dusty thinks obviously people will always try to cheat the system and take advantage, but ultimately feels that Blizzard in its true fashion will do a good job to keep the game going and going strong.  Dusty also feels that most of the items in question are aesthetic and the games that have items that aren't aesthetic, have systems in place for people to continue to work towards obtaining items outside of spending money.  This in turn means that it doesn't really affect game play much less the fact that it will still be very hard to cheese the system even with this information.   Ryan also wants to know how much keeping some information secret has either worked for or against Blizzard in a business sense.  The guys both ask for any listeners out there that have more specific knowledge on drop chances and even this news piece to message into the show.  They'd love to hear from you.

News

Overwatch:  Overwatch just got announced to be Blizzard's next IP to reach a billion dollars inside of a year.

WoW:  PTR and current news all points to 7.2.5 bringing new legendaries for each class.  These legendaries in their current form are rings and each ring has stamina, a gem socket, and an equip that gives each class access to a talent.  T19 and T20 set bonuses for some classes look to be receiving changes in 7.2.5 to ensure that T20 is ultimately more desirable over T19.

Hearthsone: A lot of wild stuff is going on!

HotS:  This week brings continuation of the 5 weeks to unlocking D.Va.

Blizzard Umbrella #14: Lazy WoW team? Is there more to this quest?  May the 4th be with you!

Intro:

This week Blizzard Umbrella is back for the fourteenth recording.  The guys have both been extremely busy but have managed to get another show in the books.  This week the guys talk about some of the important news in the Blizzard universe and some frustrations with 7.2.  The website is up and running and you can find it at www.theblizzardumbrella.com to find out about the show and what they have been up to. 

Shoutouts:

A friend of the show, Michael aka AcidTearz, wrote the guys a super cool e-mail reliving his experience to Blizzcon '14.  When the guys talked about experiencing a moment where you can be with thousands of other people who share in the same passions, it really hit home for Michael.  The moment in question for Michael was Blizzcon '14.  He went into this adventure all on his own and came out with a new outlook and a whole new community to share in his passions.  Thanks a bunch Michael, the e-mail was awesome!  Keep up the good work!

A big thanks to both Rho over at Realm Maintenance and The Blue Recluse guys for all the support they have been giving to the Blizzard Umbrella team.

What We’re Up to:

This past week Dusty has been playing a lot of WoW.  He has unlocked flying and is relishing every moment he no longer is ground bound.  There have been some frustration for Dusty though, particularly with 7.2 and the dev team,.  This weeks Broken Shore quest is to do 12 world quests in the zone.  Dusty doesn't understand why there is a quest that has nothing other than to go do world quests which by the way you can't do it in one sitting.  Why can't the dev team give a quest that has more to do with the actual opening and story behind the Tomb of Sargeras?  Ryan agrees and thinks that Blizzard has been lazy with the opening of ToS since the beginning of 7.2.  Mid June for the raid drop is way too long and indicative of the very thing they were looking to avoid this expansion.  Dusty also feels like Legion is probably one of the least alt friendly expansions.  Part of this for Dusty is due to the amount of repeat content that is required to level up alts.  Ryan talks about how there have been points of catch up for alts with AK catch up mechanics and changes to that system.  That being said he still feels like Wrath has been the most alt friendly expansion.  In order to level alt this expansion, however, the hurdles that are necessary to overcome are artifact traits and legendaries.  When leveling an alt the biggest things to focus on are getting your boosted artifact knowledge, starting the artifact knowledge research, opening the third relic slot, and then doing every world quest that has resources, artifact power, and gear.  Dusty has been tapping into some of the gear obtaining resources in game currently and has bumped his hunter's item level by almost 10 levels.

Other than WoW Dusty has been playing a lot of Hearthstone and recaps a little bit of the Dreamhack Hearthstone tournament.  Dusty also talks about the excitement that comes with the potential drop of the Necromancer in Season 11 of Diablo.

Ryan hasn't had a ton of game time other than WoW due to it being his last week of the semester.  That being said he has however gotten his Shaman up to speed for raiding and has been enjoying the new toon.  On top of that, he has been working behind the scenes on a soon to be announced podcast that focuses on the WoW raiding scene and a potential discord community.

News

WoW:  The mythic plus system is potentially seeing some big changes.  The chest system will likely be seeing a reduction of 1-3 chests to 1 chest no matter how fast you do the run.  The 1 chest will have more items based on the speed of the dungeon completion.  Keystones will now either go up or down based on completion.

Overwatch:  Hanzo is getting some bumps to his damage output with a reduced charge time on storm bow.  Genji, Soldier, Orissa, Reaper, and Reinhart also have some potential changes coming. 

HotS: The 2.0 event and exciting adventures are still active!
