Blizzcon 2016 preview and debate about any chance of Diablo content at Blizzard’s annual WoW show. Plus discussion of the abrupt end of Season 7 and the non-tent state of Season 8. Featuring N3rdwards, CaptainGoldfish, and Flux.

    Sorry for all the audio desynch issues, with the guests sounding half a second ahead of Flux’s vocals. Microsoft continues their efforts to ruin Skype by continuing to break third party applications, such as the one we use to record the podcasts. Thanks, Bill Gates!
