    Episode #128 - Raph Koster

    Episode #128 - Raph Koster

    It's the penultimate episode of Countdown To Classic, and the show continues to bring in the big guns of MMORPG gaming, as well as a bunch of the WoW Classic community for a chat.
    Today, we kick off with a chat about battlegrounds with show favourite Marky Mark, and the 'new meta' that Classic players are experiencing through the Alterac Valley, and to a lesser extent, Warsong Gulch grind.
    After that, Josh is joined for an epic chat with MMORPG legendary designer Raph Koster, the current CEO of Playable Worlds, and former lead designer and creative director of Ultima Online and Star Wars Galaxies, respectively.  Listen in to one of the best chats the show has featured, as Raph talks everything from Richard Garriott's castle, to his thoughts on micro-transactions and their place in gaming, to his current work with Playable Worlds.
    Following that, Josh publishes a bunch of calls that he has held on to far too long, with apologies to the callers, as we heard about a diverse range of WoW Classic topics from DHK's to Pet Threat.
    Highlights Below:

    Calling Countdown #1 - Ranking in 2019 w/ DaRealMarkyMark - 5:20 Calling Countdown #2 - Raph Koster on MMORPG's - 37:20 Calling Countdown #3 - More Death & Taxes Memories w/ TheNidhugg - 3:08:10 Calling Countdown #4 - Feral Druid Issue w/ Quanta - 3:35:50 Calling Countdown #5 - Pet Threat w/ Sera - 3:47:15 Calling Countdown #6 - Dishonourable Kills w/ Soniti & Shahin - 4:02:30 Calling Countdown #7 - Healing w/ Effie - 4:19:10

    Episode #127 - The Burning Crusade...Classic?

    Episode #127 - The Burning Crusade...Classic?

    It's time.
    Let's talk TBC Classic.
    The listeners have been patient as the show took a break post-Blizzcon but is back with a vengeance as we finally break down a topic that many of you have waited almost two years to discuss - The Burning Crusade and how it may go as a 'Classic' title.
    Listen in on several die-hard Countdown fans, and TBC veterans, talk about their memories from the TBC days and how the community may approach the game if it were dropped as an expansion later down the track.
    Also, hot on the heels of Phase 2 arriving 10 days ago, we talk a little about how that blood stained experience has been.
    The episode also features the WoW Classic fan panel at Blizzcon that Josh was lucky enough to moderate, as well as Josh's interesting re-telling of the 2019 Blizzcon experience.
    Highlights Below:

    Calling Countdown #1 - TBC Classic w/ Ayle, Gammax, NostalgiaDad, & Rand - 13:00 Calling Countdown #2 - Phase 2 w/ Alenya & Tys - 2:13:30 World of Podcasts WoW Classic Panel - Blizzcon 2019 w/ Athalus, Ayle, Defcamp, Josh, Melderon & PlatinumWoW - 2:42:30 Tales From The Bar - Josh's Account of Blizzcon 2019 - 3:26:15
