Show 176 is live and can be heard here and on Itunes.
This time out Fran, Julie, Chris and Steve get together to discuss legacy servers (Barren’s chat we hardly knew ye), Garrisons, Julie’s game master days, “Don’t tell me how to play your game”, Garrisons are the worst thing that ever happend to WoW, Windows 10 and other aggrivations. Then Chris tells us his story of the fortnight including his naughty Black Desert dog. Lastly we revisit Black Desert Online.
In the mean time, as you can see above, we have been playing a little bit of Ark Survival Evolved. The only thing about it that gives us the screaming heebee-jeebees is the tame times – which is why this is a picture of a neighbors dinosaur. We have also gone on a bit of a tour in World of Warcraft. In the evenings Julie and Fran have been taking a tour of the alliance side so they can see how the other half lives. Fran seems to be enjoying her monk. Julie on the other hand keeps muttering something about “once you roll troll you never re-roll.”
One thing we are all sure about, however, is that garrisons are the absolute worse things to happen to World of Warcraft in a long, long time. If there was a way to get rid of them retroactively we certainly would. Towns like Ogrimar and Ironforge that were once bustling with people are now ghost towns. Where are all the people? In their garrisons. They are so complete with all the amenities there is no reason for players to ever visit the cities. At this point World of Warcraft is starting to resemble the original Guild Wars only in reverse. In the original guild wars the cities were the common area and the entire rest of the world was instanced. With the new World of Warcraft expansion coming out next month we can only hope that Blizzard does something that makes garrisons impossible to use in the new content.
In the mean time, we will see you online.
