What a long, strange trip it’s been. As some of you may know, the direction of the show had veered from the hardcore topics we had in the past. At first this seemed like a good idea considering that the playstyle of the game seemed to have changed. However, over time, we started getting lots of emails from people stating that they were unhappy with the show’s new direction. The comments on iTunes reflected that as well. It was disheartening since I put over five years of work into this show (where were you people when we needed five-star reviews?).
Things were getting bad. The positive emails stopped coming in and were replaced with “WTF?” emails about the direction the show was going in. I expressed my feelings about this to Alachia and to make a long story short, she gracefully and respectfully decided to step down as co-host. She hasn’t played WoW in months, so it was difficult to talk about topics when our interests in the game were diverging greatly, especially when I was still playing daily. It was sad to read that, but understandable. There’s still a mic open for Alachia anytime. She still remains my inspiration for looking at the game differently, and is still one of my good friends.
One common thread amongst the emails I got was to bring back Lindyen. He hasn’t been on the show regularly in almost five years, but people keep asking for him to come back. I now announce that starting today, Lindyen will be the new co-host of Warcast…again. We hope to bring the hardcore discussions back to the show that were left behind.
Thanks to everyone for your support, and let your friends know that the show is back, baby! Lindy will be here in about two hours and we’ll be recording then.
