Episode #036: All About Clans (with Special Guest, Danfinity!)

TODAY, the new Warmind expansion drops on May 8, and not only are we excited about it, so is our fearless leader of Current Meta: Danfinity.

Who is Danfinity, you ask?

Well, we are going to answer that question with this one-on-two chat (Yes, “two” as Nick is on a business trip at the time of this recording, so it’s just me and Brandon.) as we talk all about Clans and why they matter. We end with some hard talk about the Warmind which, at the time of the recording, was days away…

Now, it is a matter of hours.

Want to send some feedback to Danfinity or give us your thoughts on the Warmind DLC? Talk to us at 703.791.1701 or podcast (at) happyhourfromthetower (dot) com.
