Segment 1: Moments of Zen
Tess-

Militus – I had fun running BC TW dungeons. Love them so much.

Boom -. I created a chinese Apple account and downloaded the game that Diablo Immortal is based on. I have been playing it on my phone. This prompted me to start learning Chinese.

Raided, went 2/2 Mythic. Got a 370 weapon. Did a quest got a 355 shoulder set up. Put me at 360. I am doing decent DPS. I 100% stopped trying to get flying. I don’t even care.

Let me tell you about this game…

Why does Blizzard LOVE Paladins so much? More animations.

ONLY HOLY. Ret does get a a new animation from an azeriate trait, though. Still no love for the prot.
Tess is sad.

New PTR build shows 5th ring for Azerite armor:
On the chest shown as example, the new ring unlocks at Azerite level 23. The normal rings will unlock after, at Azerite levels 27, 31, 35 and 39.

There are some changes to Amerite coming in 8.1, but nothing for Prot Pally. Tess is sad.

Hot Topic: Mythic Dungeon Invitational and Blizzards Move to be an eSport Powerhouse
What do you think about eSports moving in on all Blizzard does? Seems like all games must have an eSport element. Is Blizzard becoming an eSport developer instead of a game developer? Will all future games from Blizzard be built around them being first and foremost an eSport?

Overwatch – Created as an eSport
Heroes of the Storm – created as eSport trying to capture some of that LoL market, then shifted to its own style.
Starcraft 2 – Created as game organically turned into an eSport powerhouse – spawned LoL
Hearthstone – created as and is an eSport powerhouse
World of Warcraft – eSports has always been in the background all recent moves have been to make it a relevant eSport.
Diablo 3 – Not really an eSport

Boom – Prediction: Diablo will be an eSport soon.

It feels like Blizzard is moving towards everything being an eSport in some capacity. It feels as if they are chasing the eSport carrot after LoL had so much success. Twitch is pretty much dominated by multiplayer competitive titles. And the ones that make it to mobile make the most money. The biggest games right now are eSport titles and that seems to be what they are moving towards. Is Blizzard now out to make the best eSport games or the games that people enjoy playing the most. It isn’t good or bad, it just is. And they are getting away from their MMO roots now and are headed towards mostly multiplayer competitive titles.

World of Warcraft has taken the best part of their game and turned it into a timed test (like a timed math test in grade school). It is no longer relaxing, immersive fun, it is stressful competitive play. I am not making a judgment, because it might be great for many gamers. It just isn’t why I played WoW originally.

What do you think about running Mythic +’s for Azurite armor?
Militus – I am not motivated to run more… think of all the people that ARE NOT SKILLED and NOW WILL BE RUNNING these dungeons

https://www.wowhead.com/news=288116/patch-8-1-ptr-build-28202-maps-for-battle-of-dazaralor
Looks like we are in for a great time!
Militus – The new raid looks really good. I have read where Preach and other high end raiders have LOVED the testing.

Preach’s video discussing the raid: https://youtu.be/7DndJ1oz1b4

https://www.wowhead.com/news=288118/wow-classic-blizzcon-demo-pre-download-available-starting-today
Boom – They are going to limit how long you get to play the demo. I thought that was interesting. I guess to prevent burnout?
Militus- I find this to be dishonest by Blizzard.

Segment 2: Moments of Zen
Tess –

Militus –
Raiding with Nick, Tess and Militus was amazing! Seeing Tess tanking like a pro!
Pro Tip: Do not turn on Warmode and try and turn in Weekly dungeon quest in Timeless isle.
Taking a break from daily WoW to play different games has been wonderful. LAN parties in 2018!

Boom – Raiding with Nick, Tess and Militus was really a great time. We downed 5 bosses in two hours and I was able to get two pieces of 370 loot which made my night.

Thank God for Destiny 2, if it wasn’t for this game I might have to read a book or something. Destiny 2 is on a freaking roll. Forsaken is really good. This is my favorite game this year by a long shot, and maybe my favorite game of the last two years. Amazingly enough there is more to do in this game right now than in the entire WoW BFA expansion. I will have more hours in on this to finish than BFA to date. I am level 34 the Infinite Forest is amazing. The PVE content is wonderful and you always feel like you are making progress and having an epic moment. It is a 10/10 for me.
