This week I popped into the IGN studio to get face to face with Cam Shea and geek out about all the latest news around Hearthstone. We dive into the Year of the Dragon, the Specialist esports format, the Rise of Shadows announcement and the idea of a whole story threading through the year ahead. Plus how important this year’s rotation is as well as those early Hall of Fame moves.
I touch on the big, bad news out of Blizzard from last week to kick things off, then the show is a feature interview about the future of revisiting the past in WoW Classic with Countdown To Classic podcast host, Josh Corbett.
We’re back after the summer break (which included a literal break of a bone, so things were slower than we expected…) and this is a short and sweet catch up on what went down and just how important the year ahead seems to be for Blizzard.
Genome is back to help dive deep into all things Overwatch, and we explore all the recent big events – Overwatch World Cup, new OWL teams (and their colour schemes), all the movements of Aussie players around the global scene, and Contenders S3 kicked off this week so we take a close look at what to expect there too.
It’s a final round before Blizzcon 2018, exploring the ways you can watch the big event, and when to tune in for the Aussie esports action. Plus a last blast of speculation before we find out what’s really lurking behind the curtain on Saturday morning at 5am.
