Episode #128 - Raph Koster

EIt'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 Find Josh’s movie podcast, The Sinner Files @https://www.sinnerfiles.com/ Follow Josh on Twitter @https://twitter.com/count2classic?lang=en Join the Countdown To Classic Discord here:https://discord.gg/2xJAwNf Support the show with a tip at Ko-Fi @https://ko-fi.com/Y8Y3D2TT

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

EIt'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.

ELet's get physical! ...I mean, topical!! There's news and opinions everywhere over the last week as the players play around with exactly what they can do with Classic. We discuss the 'spirit of vanilla' and what basis Blizzard may or may not have to ban people for certain in game actions.

Episode #121 - Easy Money

EI'm on vacation but there is no rest for the wicked, so sit backand 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.

EI'm on vacation but there is no rest for the wicked, so sit backand enjoy the end of summer with some poolside WoW Classic chatter.
