All posts for the month February, 2014

Heyo. Hope you’re having a wonderful Monday (or as wonderful as can be expected for a Monday, anyway). Our intrepid trio are back to discuss all things raiding, lore, and stuff completely unrelated to anything of relevance.

This week, we discuss:

  • Durotan! He enjoys long walks in the forest, apparently;
  • Button Cull!;
  • Our thoughts on how LFR has changed;
  • …and much more!

A couple of bits of news for you: We were lucky enough to be interviewed by Rho at Realm Maintenance, and will be appearing on the show tomorrow (18th Feb) – keep an ear out for us! Massive thanks to Rho for having us on the show.

Make sure you enter our competition to win an MoP physical collector’s edition and a SteelSeries QcK Mouse Mat. We’ve had some great entries so far and are excited to hear what you come up with.

Save the date: March 29th (Saturday). After the success of BarCraft-on-Thames, we’re running a new event in partnership with Blizzard to commemorate and celebrate the launch of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. More information coming shortly, but expect great things.

Until next week: Love, Tickles and bags of Pickle(d Onion Monster Munch)*. Toman.

*Yes, I’m hungry. What of it?

Hey folks. If you listened to last week’s show, you’ll know that we’re going to be starting a new feature soon where we talk about tracks from the Mists of Pandaria soundtrack. I don’t know about you guys, but a lot of my friends play with the sounds off so they’ve never heard some of these amazing pieces of music. That’s something we really want to change.

That’s where you come in. We’d really like your help discussing them, so we’re offering you the chance to win a physical, boxed copy of the Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition. All you need to do to win is let us know your favourite track from the MoP soundtrack and why you love it so much. What kind of feelings does it bring up in you? What does it remind you of when you hear it? What were you doing in-game when you first heard it? Give us your thoughts on these, and anything else that comes to mind.

We would also absolutely love to get some of you talking about it on the podcast, so if you’re not too shy, then record yourself talking about the track and we’ll feature the best bits on the show. As well as counting as an entry to the Collector’s Edition grand prize, we’re also giving away a Mists of Pandaria themed Steelseries QcK Mousemat for the best recording. You can either record yourself (using Audacity, or whichever program you like) and email it to us, or leave us a voicemail on the sidebar to the right of this post.

Email your submissions to mailbag@readycheck.co.uk, and let us know your character name, server and faction. The competition closes on Monday 24th February, so that gives you plenty of time to listen and let us know what you think! The competition is open to anyone in the EU or NA.

UPDATE: Although the competition is open to everyone, the collector’s edition is for the EU servers only. We’ll have a chat with Blizzard to see if they can help…

Best of luck, all!

Evening kids. As you may know if you follow us on Twitter, we’ve had a pretty busy week at work and weren’t able to record a full show on our usual Monday night. So, to fill the gap this week, we’ve created a short episode for you! A podcast equivalent of Lost Coast, if you will. We’ll be back as normal next week, so please get your rapid-fire questionsshout-outs and tactical advice to us before then.

This week we were contacted by Raven of Girls Gone WoW fame (one of our favourite podcasts), who wanted to let us know about an awesome event they’ve got planned in London on Saturday 19th April. It’s a WoW community meetup, where anyone with an interest in WoW is encouraged to turn up (interest in WoW optional as long as you’re nice) and have fun chatting about all things Blizzard in a friendly environment. The event takes place at The Feathers Pub in St James Park from 15.00 onwards. More details can be found on Raven’s blog at silkyraven.livejournal.com.

That’s it for this week, folks. Until next time… Love, Squeezes and Dalaran Sharp cheeses (ok, ok, tenuous at best). Toman.
