This week on the Twisted Nether we welcome Typhoon Andrew from Eye of the Storm as our special guest. We spend some time discussing the recent Developer Twitter Q&A session and also even more of the Gearscore controversy and, of course, there is a little mail to answer.

suggested by Ringo from Flinthammer Hall:
after Arthas is unlocked and (presumably) taken down that first weekend sometime in late winter or early spring:
What now? What happens to the world of Azeroth? What happens to the people, the factions. How does this affect the relationships between the Alliance and Horde? What does your character think happens next? Is this the end for you, as a player, especially if you started, as I did, with Warcraft III? Is this the “end of history?”

Next week…

Next week we’ll hopefully have a guest. Stay tuned :)
