One thought on “Episode #119 – The Classic Launch Experience”

  1. Love this podcast! Kills the time when I ‘m at work and has super content.
    Hope to see you cover following topics in the near future: world first 60, world first rag & onyxia (by APES, not Method), ‘exploit’ xp by raiding dungeons
    And what I am also intrested in, is Blizzards reaction to queues and why such a big company can ‘t seem to come up with a solution. There are even some conspiracies that Blizzard is doing this on purpose in response to the ‘you think you do..’ (and we were right btw)

    Have a blast in classic, I know I am!
