This Monday, Countdown To Classic mixes things up by putting our detective hats on and just spending the episode analysing one topic in particular instead of the traditional three.  During the week, we got our first potential 'leaks' of World of Warcraft: Classic information.  When this comes from a company that isn't historically known for being leaky, naturally the skeptics came out to play, of which Countdown To Classic is one.  Join us as we break the news down from all angles, whilst trying to be as fair, and polite, as possible without necessarily kissing bums. Covering a lot of Patch 1.1 chat along the way. This episode is a little different to our usual Monday episodes, so if this is your first listen, then be sure to check out other Monday episodes for a true feel of what the news shows are usually like!

Join Josh in Part Two of the Ahn'Qiraj journey as he explains why we ventured beyond the gates that we heard all about last week on the show. After we go through the lore, we hit up the forums for the reactions of the players to the content of AQ20 and AQ40 and what we thought of it all back in the day, ranging from the fun (or boredom) of the raids and the tough encounters.

Classic release theories abound with the announcement of a release date for BFA about a month earlier than expected.  Join Josh as Countdown To Classic ponders what the news could mean for Classic moving forward. Then, Josh goes undercover, hiding in plain sight through the opening of the K3 private server and touches on what the popularity of this experience could mean for WoW: Classic as well as the ups and downs of the unveiling to the world. Finally, we reflect on the things that we actually kind of disliked about World of Warcraft in the vanilla days, the things we perhaps forget about amongst the love fests for the game.
