Welcome to the TBC Classic podcast where it's not my opinion that counts - but yours! Each episode Josh chats with the WoW Classic community on the issues surrounding The Burning Crusade. Today we talk about a big issue that on face value seems to only affect one region of the world, but actually might have much more wide spread ramifications.  The Oceanic PvP battlegroup was stealth merged with the NA battle groups overnight, and brought much higher latency along for the ride, much to the chagrin of much of the Oceanic community.  This talk covers some of the frustrations of the players, as well as giving contrarian views. After that, we also talk about the energy issues surrounding feral druids right now and why the druids are begging for a change that Blizzard didn't seem to have an issue with when Paladins were asking for it.

Finally, we go way off topic, and take the time to discuss another MMORPG on the horizon, as the Ashes of Creation Alpha NDA is lifted, and we can hear about what's brewing over in Verra....
