This week, John Horstmann from Well Met and The Payload podcasts (at http://blizzpro.com) joins the crew with Sharku. While technical difficulties messed with the last show, there is now a veritable smorgasbord of news to discuss!

Legion, the next expansion for World of Warcraft was announced to launch on August 30, 2016. Both cheers and salt can be heard from the community, and the guys discuss their own opinions on the matter.

J. Allen Brack took to the forums to discuss the shutting down of the Nostalrius legacy servers and mentioned the idea of "pristine servers" that would, in essence, remove bonus XP and other "easy buttons" while still playing the game in its current state. Is this enough to address what Nostalrius members were after? What can Blizzard do that would make sense for both the company and the community?

Hearthstone launched its new expansion "Whispers of the Old Gods" this week. The crew talks about the cards, the expansion and more as they try to figure out the new meta.

Plus, Blizzcon tickets sell out (as always), StaCraft 2 players arrested for game fixing, the Overwatch hype train is at full speed, Diablo Season 6 hits this week, Tracer lands in the Nexus and a lot more!
