Blizzard Umbrella #35 Antorus, Overwatch League, and Predicitions!

Intro:

This week Blizzard Umbrella is back for the thirty fifth recording.  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.  On this show the guys are talking about Antorus, Overwatch League, and what they’ve been up to.  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:

The guys have both had quite a bit of real life that has kept them away but they couldn’t be more excited to be back in front of the mic talking about all things Blizzard!

World of Warcraft:

Dusty has officially joined the raiding community and the guys take some time to talk Antorus and what they like and dislike about it.

Overwatch:

January 10th, the fist day of the inaugural Overwatch League season is just around the corner.  Dusty and Ryan take some time to talk how they think the season will go and what they hope to see in moving forward.

Hearthstone:

This expansion doesn’t quite have the luster as the past expansion did for Dusty.  He hopes that Blizzard will continue to look at what works and doesn’t work with each expansion and make improvements as they go.

HotS:

Firebat is on the PTR!

General:

The guys make 3 predictions players will see this next year with expected, unexpected, and really unexpected announcements out of Blizzard.
