    Hearthstone's Year of the Phoenix!

    A big new year for Hearthstone. Unquestionably biggest yet. So The Scrapyard gets some Hearthstone specialists together to talk shop. Demon Hunters. Outland. Priest reworks. Ranked ladder changes. New / returning player experiences. And lots more! Come share our excitement at what's coming next for Blizzard's fantabulous digital card game.


    Seamus is joined by Stirling Coates (@stirlingcoates) and Kosta Andreadis (@toadovsky).

    The Sistine Chapel of Storytelling

    The Sistine Chapel of Storytelling

    We talk about why we're not angry, we're disappointed, when it comes to Warcraft 3: Reforged – but how the issues with the remake don't mean it's a terrible game. And how we hope there's light somewhere at the end of the tunnel. And speaking of tunnels, how about that coronavirus? It comes up not once, not twice, but in THREE different aspects of Blizzard news this week.


    Plus somehow we talk way too much about the movie Outbreak. Kosta seems to really, really love it.

    The delicious Diablo quarterly update

    The delicious Diablo quarterly update

    This week we've got Seamus, Zhiana and Kosta together to dig into some of the juicy details delivered by the Diablo team in the February quarterly update. So many details!


    While Diablo is on our mind we also take a look at Season 20 for Diablo 3 and some of its cool new features, and we ask that age old question - what is the actual deal with Diablo Immortal at this stage?


    Finally, a spoileriffic look at the conclusion to the Year of the Dragon in Hearthstone and a look at the WoW Classic Phase 5 timing news and what that might mean for running out of content sooner than we thought?

    Summer nights of WoW

    Summer nights of WoW

    Seamus and Zhiana catch up after a long break to find they've been two sides of the WoW coin – getting a lot done in Retail and Classic. So this return episode goes deep on recent WoW efforts, from the grind to 60 and raiding in Classic, to cleaning up Allied Races and mount hunting in Retail. With diversions galore along the way, of course!


    If it's not too late, here's Spirit of Eche'ro info for your hunt!

    Whose Race To World First?

    Whose Race To World First?

    Dave Jansen stops by to dive deep on 8.2 and the state of the raiding scene just as Mythic Eternal Palace gets set to drop. With a fresh Race To World First kicking off, we look at the controversy around Method and Red Bull falling out, wanting to see more guilds being involved, and what we hope the right way to run this all might be.


    Plus we enter a big old rabbit hole around the lore of the expansion and where we think, and where we hope, things will take us as we head toward the next expansion.
