31. Controversies and Injustice

31. Controversies and Injustice

August 11, 2020

The Gallywix RMT Controversy surprised a lot of people. Don't know that that means? Don't worry - we'll explain it. We also talk about Blizzard's tribute to Reckful, money issues in America (yes, really), the controversies surrounding the opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj on Classic, and WoW in a VR setting.

30. Shadowlands Enters Beta

30. Shadowlands Enters Beta

July 14, 2020

The big Shadowlands streaming presentation last week might have been disappointing - or it might have gotten you excited about World of Warcraft again. Either way, we break down the information revealed, including Shadowlands moving into beta testing this week! What do we think about the collector's edition (with the return of the art book)? What about gender swapping at the barber show? Listen on to hear our reactions to all of this and more!

BONUS: Have Not Seen This Warcraft Excerpt

BONUS: Have Not Seen This Warcraft Excerpt

July 7, 2020

It's our week off, but we wanted to take the opportunity for a little shameless self-promotion. Recently, Rafe's other podcast, Have Not Seen This, looked at the 2016 film adaptation Warcraft. You can hear a snippet of the conversation here as Rafe and guest Luke Kunka talk about how buff Gul'dan is and how none of the Mak'gora challenges seem to be played fair. If you like what you hear, you can find the full episode on your podcast players or by following this link. We'll be back for our regularly scheduled episode next week!

29. Azeroth News Binge

29. Azeroth News Binge

June 30, 2020

While we haven't recorded in a few weeks due to... well, everything in the world, the Warcraft news cycle hasn't stopped. This week Rafe and Chris try to make their way through a flood of news, from Blizzard's increased action towards botters and hackers to recent developments of an unsavory nature with a high profile guild. Curseforge has been sold, WoW Classic had an esports event, you can look forward to jewelry, flowers, vines, and burn marks in your character's future appearance, and more!

28. Why RP?

28. Why RP?

June 9, 2020

This week we revisit the Echoes of Nyalotha system after it has gone live in the game, mourn the loss of this year's BlizzCon, consider what an animated World of Warcraft series might be like, talk about MMORPGs on consoles, and discuss why role-playing (RP) is an appealing element of the game that comes from the player, not the game company.

*Notes: this episode was recorded on May 31st but delayed due to last week's events. We've made efforts to remove references that are no longer relevant (such as the now-delayed Blizzard event on June 9th), but just wanted to throw that reminder in there just in case we missed something. Also, while we may be releasing the episode, the events that made us take pause last week are far from over. We ask that you continue to be safe and be kind, and be involved in whatever way you find possible.

June 2, 2020

Hey all - this should have been our week with a new episode and we did sit down and record one on Sunday, but it just feels wrong to release a new episode right now with everything going on in the world. It is definitely a time that we need to stop and listen, and putting an episode out feels antithetical to that. So, we're going to sit on the new episode for a few days. We encourage everyone who can to get involved, but more importantly, be safe and be kind. We'll be back soon and we'll see you in Azeroth.

27. Is WoW Still a Social Game?

27. Is WoW Still a Social Game?

May 19, 2020

There is quite a bit of news to talk about this week, from interviews with Morgan Day and Ion Hazzikostas to rumors about a remastered Diablo II. We wish Leeroy Jenkins a happy anniversary, discuss the new Small World of Warcraft Board Game, consider what the new @WoWEsports Twitter account might signify, and discuss the recent debate on how the social experience of World of Warcraft has changed over the course of the game's growth.

26. Shadowlands Class Changes Are Coming (Part II)

26. Shadowlands Class Changes Are Coming (Part II)

May 12, 2020

Chris and Rafe are back with a look at the changes coming to the bulk of the class changes coming in Shadowlands and we're asking a lot of questions as we look at them: have casters not gotten as much attention or just not gotten balanced yet? What will Blizzard have to do to make mages more appealing? What should Rafe play as a Vulpera? The biggest discovery over the course of this conversation, however, is how often the description of the class is now that it's "fun". More Shadowlands changes are coming and we hope the fun continues to be a part of them!

Podcast Update

May 5, 2020

Hey all - no new episode this week, but I (Rafe) did want to give an update as to what's going on with the show. As you may have seen, I announced last week some changes were coming on our various social media accounts, and then one of those changes was also announced, so this week I'm giving a brief update about where the show stands and where we are currently thinking things will go. As always, we welcome your feedback through the various channels listed below.

25. Shadowlands Class Changes Are Coming (Part I)

April 21, 2020

The Shadowlands Alpha has not only brought an expansion of new content, but another opportunity to tweak, change, or alter classes and specializations. This week we begin diving into the over-arching changes being made to the classes, starting with druids, paladins, and monks (because those are the ones we play as mains). We invite you to contact us (azerothcitizens@gmail.com) with your own reactions to class changes you play as mains as we dive into the rest of the class changes next week.
