Episode #12 – I Got Ripped (In Two) At AQ


Venture back to the fallen kingdom of Ahn’Qiraj and learn all about the lore of the Qiraji, Silithid and C’Thun in the deepest of dives into all things AQ!

Join Josh in Part Two of the Ahn’Qiraj journey as he explains why we ventured beyond the gates that we heard all about last week on the show.

After we go through the lore, we hit up the forums for the reactions of the players to the content of AQ20 and AQ40 and what we thought of it all back in the day, ranging from the fun (or boredom) of the raids and the tough encounters.

24 Hour Delay On Episode #12!

Sorry all, I had to record two episodes of my movie podcast today and it ate into preparation and recording time for Countdown, so there will be a one day delay on episode #12.  Look for it first thing Thursday morning EST instead, apologies for the slight delay, but the second part of our epic break down of all things lore in Ahn’Qiraj will be with you very soon!

Episode #11 – Plugging Up Classic Leaks


This Monday, Countdown To Classic mixes things up by putting our detective hats on and just spending the episode analysing one topic in particular instead of the traditional three.  During the week, we got our first potential ‘leaks’ of World of Warcraft: Classic information.

When this comes from a company that isn’t historically known for being leaky, naturally the skeptics came out to play, of which Countdown To Classic is one.  Join us as we break the news down from all angles, whilst trying to be as fair, and polite, as possible without necessarily kissing bums. Covering a lot of Patch 1.1 chat along the way.

This episode is a little different to our usual Monday episodes, so if this is your first listen, then be sure to check out other Monday episodes for a true feel of what the news shows are usually like!

Episode #10 – I’ll Trade You My Crabs For Your Scarab Mount


It’s lore time yet again, and Josh runs through the first part of two in regards to what went down at Ahn’Qiraj, with the opening of the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj. After hearing about the painstaking effort it took to open those bad boys, we touch on community thoughts on the world event from back in the day and how Blizzard may be able to get away with tweaking this one for World Of Warcraft: Classic.

Episode #9 – Don’t Toggle My Graphics


It’s time to go back…to the forums! Today, Countdown To Classic takes on the hard hitting issues of DKP vs. Loot Councils, toggle-able updated graphics and whether or not we were half as good at the game as we like to think we were back in the vanilla days.

Highlights Below:

Episode #8 – Shadowfang Keepin’ It Real


Apologies for the 24 hour delay on this one everyone, I recorded last night and lost the whole recording to a technical mishap and had to re-record today! But it’s all sorted now and so –

It’s lore time yet again, and Josh runs through a vanilla favourite – Shadowfang Keep, Archmage Arugal and the origins of the Worgen.  After the history lesson, we touch briefly on community thoughts on SFK from back in the day and the economic reasons for why we kept heading back there.

Delay For This Week’s Wednesday Episode!

Apologies listeners, I just spent two hours recording today’s episode and then I saw the dreaded words ‘Data Write Error’ when I stopped the recording.  Lost it all.

I shall re-record and release this week’s lore deep dive into Shadowfang Keep either Thursday morning or Friday morning, unfortunately these things happen in the digital age 😦
