    1. I have listened to the podcast on and off for a couple years and found it helpful learning from dedicated players and fans of the game. As a casual I generally learn something about the game from each podcast from people that play more and have taken the time to research.

      This podcast had several glaring problems. Both on the show state they haven’t played much and don’t really know what is happening with the game. Wrong information was discussed on the freebie set – just reading the patch notes could have cleared that up.
