This is the first episode of 2019! Justin and I talk about the Festival of Madness, the most recent monthly reward card, and my mental disorders. This episode is kind of all over the place, and a bit of a wild ride.
For this episode, Justin and I have the lowest energy we've ever had for a podcast. Seriously, this isn't a great show. I was still readjusting after coming back from Kiev. Justin had just finished a very long week as well. We were out of it to say the least. Hopefully, things will pick up for the next one.
For this episode, Justin and I have the pleasure of interviewing Peter Janaros, lead game designer for The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Peter talks about his history with gaming, how Sparkypants has tackled developing Legends this year, and the priorities for the future.
For this episode, Justin and I are finally joined by TurquoiseLink. "Link" was a participant in the Masters Series finals, and has been a big member of the Legends community for a long time.
For this episode, Justin and I go over the FrostSpark collection and discuss how we've seen the cards perform so far. I kind of rant a lot this time around, even though it wasn't intentional.
For this episode, Justin and I are joined by special guest NickelQueen. We run into technical problems because my internet dropped, we reveal a new card, and we have several awkward silences. I also yell a lot. Miranda was great, but Justin and I were off our game.
For this episode, Justin and I are joined by special guest Silverfuse. We talk a bit about the Masters Series, and the Team Rankstar Classic. We also talk about what makes casting difficult, and we go over the newly revealed Frostfall cards.
For this episode, Justin and I are joined by special guest Arkham Warlock (Charles) to talk about his latest survey. Charles has done surveys on the state of the game in the past, and his most recent survey was focused on the new client for Legends.
For this episode, Justin and I are joined by special guest Traitor Joe! We talk about the new client, recent community issues, and overall what a weird week it's been.
For this episode, Justin and I talk a little about the changes to Twitch Drops. We then get nostalgic about the game for awhile, as this is the last podcast before the new client goes live.
For this episode, Justin and I are joined by Aphelion. Aphelion is the owner and founder of Team Rankstar, an organization that competes in several digital card games. We talk about how the team was formed, as well as what to expect in the future. Aphelion was having some microphone problems, so I apologize for the audio quality of this episode. It was the best we could get it before going live.
This week, Justin and I are joined by Masters Series semifinalist TDCJason. We talk about Jason's experiences during the qualifiers, having to play extra games to get in on points, and his performance at the finals. We also get to see his Ant-Man helmet, which is basically the best part of the show.
Justin and I have returned from the Masters Series Finals, and we are ready to talk about the experience. We are joined by Will (plzdonhakme), the Masters Series Champion himself! Will talks about what it was like to meet everyone, what it's like preparing for that kind of event, and what his plans are for the future. We also get a special appearance by Will's dad.
Justin and I are almost finished moving, so we wanted to squeeze in a podcast while we had the time. In this episode, we were joined by Sophie who streams Legends on Twitch. You can find her at https://www.twitch.tv/eolistv. We briefly discuss the Masters Series, our time casting, the recent balance patch, and more. With so many interesting topics having popped up, it was hard to take a deep dive into any one subject. There were also some technical difficulties for this broadcast, but that's largely due to me still having to get things in order after moving into the new home. As such, you may notice that my microphone was much louder than others. That should be corrected in the future. Finally, I wanted to note that we are taking a break again next week as we will be casting the Masters Series Finals at QuakeCon. We should return to our normal schedule once the series concludes.
The podcast is going on a small hiatus. Don't worry, we'll be back. This just explains what is going on in the near future.
This week, Justin and CHARM3R talk about the changes to Twitch drops and the announcement of the Masters Series. The Masters Series contains several small qualifying tournaments, which will lead up to a championship event at QuakeCon with a $50,000 prize pool.
This week, Justin and CHARM3R decided to stream alongside the Bethesda Showcase at E3. This means that you can hear the audio from the showcase itself, as well as the crew's reactions to the announcements.
I just wanted to say that I know this particular show isn't suited well for the audio format, and for that I am sorry. E3 is a once-a-year event and we wanted to do something a bit different. The problem is that this experience is best with visuals, and watching it live certainly doesn't hurt either. We'll get back to the normal format next week.
Back after an extended break, Justin and CHARM3R talk about the big news revealed while they were visiting Bethesda HQ. Ianbits joins the cast to talk about the trip, and the change in developers.
I've been getting some questions about when the next podcast is going to happen, so I wanted to provide a timeline along with some updates.
This week, Justin and I talk about the Grand Melee event. We also talk about Justin's bias toward aggressive decks, and what he's learned after playing them for a week.
