Episode 67 – Hardly Touching Fruit

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In this episode, we celebrate getting almost everyone back into the “recording studio”! After catching up from our unplanned hiatus we get down to business by discussing what we’ve been up to in-game: Breja got cocky and lost his Plum, Nevik has yet another level 70 wizard, and Jen is wondering what class to get to 70 next!

In this episode:

* We received a solitary email from Rebur (@Chaos5061) but decided to hold onto it for our next show at his behest since its content is aimed for our “Getting Torment Viable show“! Thank you Rebur for the email, we will hold on to it for when that show happens! We love to hear stories of triumph or tragedy from our listeners, so keep them coming, really!

* For a short turnaround between shows we received a decent amount of tweets from @grindexp, @Foqbupog, @Jaetch, @Kherova, and @Hawgeye_CTR. Thank you for your tweets. Don’t forget that you, too, can send in your thoughts via social media outlets such as FacebookGoogle+, and Twitter.

* We posed the question on Twitter asking for your predictions on the release dates for patch 2.1 as well as the opening of the first season. We got quite a few responses despite the short notice on the question going live. Be sure to follow our show account, @ShatteredStone, on Twitter for future Questions of the Show.

* Could Patch 2.1 be right around the corner? Blizzard has been on a Patch 2.1 media blitz with a hosted Q&A Tavern Talk, forum post highlighting the design philosophies behind the patch, and previews for Seasons, Greater Rifts, and The Vault. We can’t be far off, right?

* Meanwhile, as announced by community manager Nevalistis at the end of the developer Tavern Talk, Blizzard decided everyone could use some more gold and gave us a +50% Gold Find buff for the duration of the weekend (until server maintenance early Tuesday morning). Another sign that 2.1 is Soon™?

* We are back at it with another Official Forum Thread Masterpiece Theater and this time we bring you not just one, but TWO angst-ridden threads that cropped up on the official forums. Did you lose a hardcore character during the weekend DDoS attacks? Or do you feel that Blizzard is ignoring you? These folks sure did and took to the forums to let everyone know.

As always we are looking for your participation with this fun segment, send your Official Forum Thread Masterpiece Theater audio segments (or humorous forum threads) to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com.

This episode’s Official Forum Thread Masterpiece Theater segment bed music included Rondeau from Sinfonie de Fanfares by Jean-Joseph Mouret and Pannonia Boundless by Alexandra Vrebalov.

Song of the Show:

Guess what folks! FOOTBALL SEASON IS UPON US and that means Madden season (if you’re a fan of Madden football). EA Sports put together something really special for Madden 15’s commercial; something that they may never be able to top. Enjoy! And no we’re not sorry.
