Episode Info

Episode Info: I'm on vacation but there is no rest for the wicked, so sit back and enjoy the end of summer with some poolside WoW Classic chatter. The show sneaks in a topical fiscal discussion regarding fresh economies and what's happening across many servers worldwide right now, while also briefly touching on the recent blue post regarding layering abuse and the gathering of mats. After that, we hear all about the evolution of raids through WoW's life cycle (and what vanilla had to offer), and balancing WoW with a minor league baseball career. Finally, the show brings it on home with a fascinating chat with former Star Wars: The Old Republic lead designer, Damion Schubert, about the making of what was another huge MMORPG, and the design philosophies that went into that game while competing with WoW, as Countdown to continues to highlight the design process of the games that have helped forge the genre over the years.
