Episode #104 – Release Date!! Discussing Beta, Layering, Cross-realm BG’s + Kevin Jordan on Rogues + Retail Reception of Classic WoW



Blizzard finally delivers the news that everyone had been eager to hear with a release date for World of Warcraft Classic, and brings a number of other huge news items along with it.

Josh gets a handful of dedicated listeners on the line to breakdown the news while it was piping hot and fresh, and the group discusses sharding’s lesser known cousin ‘layering’, closed beta, and cross-realm battlegrounds amongst other topics that came to light.

After that, former vanilla WoW class/talents/abilities designer Kevin Jordan is back for his final class breakdown as we rip through the design history of Rogues in vanilla WoW.

Finally, we hear from a few listeners all about what the predicted reception of Classic will be from the retail crowd who haven’t already made the commitment to try the game out.

  1. Another amazing podcast Josh. One thing that has struck me is the amount of younger players who are a little upset about the release date. It’s interesting to me because I really didn’t think there would be so many players (some of which may have been toddlers or not even born during Classic) amped up for Classic. I really would have thought most of us would be indifferent to the release as we’re not in school anymore! Maybe I’m wrong.

    I can’t wait, though!
