#219 - The Angry Chicken: “All the AMA!”

It's time for a bro show because Jocelyn is out of town this week. Garrett and Dills are here to two-man The Angry Chicken through the onslaught of Ben Brode's AMA where he lifted the curtain on the many ways Team 5 is looking to improve Hearthstone. Iksar has also been very chatty about Arena design philosophy and as usual there were a few emails from the community. Cont...

#218 - The Angry Chicken: “Suddenly Elemental”

Two episodes in four days?! That's right. There's a whole lot of Hearthstone going on and TAC is already back. The Rogue Quest nerf hit, four new cards are now considered Elementals (and some additional tokens as well), Arena received a balance update, and developer interviews revealed more information on Knights of the Frozen Throne. Cont...

#217 - The Angry Chicken: “Knights of the Frozen Throne”

The Angry Chicken has been resurrected on a Friday because the Lich King wills it! The TAC crew return for a special recording to talk all about Hearthstone's upcoming expansion, the Knights of the Frozen Throne. Death Knight Hero Cards, Lifesteal, Legendary minions ripped right out of Icecrown Citadel, and new single player missions are all coming faster than the shambling undead horde of the Scourge. Cont...

#216 - The Angry Chicken: “Guaranteed Legendary”

The Angry Chicken arrives a day early this week because Nerdtacular requires traveling! The whole crew is back to crack open the mail bag and make a large dent. The TAC trio also discuss what the upcoming changes to opening Legendary cards in packs means for Hearthstone, Brode's announcement of an announcement, TACO: Un'Goro, and memeing at Legend rank. Cont...

#215 - The Angry Chicken: “Don’t Picnic”

The Angry Chicken returns with only two heads this week! Garrett and Dills are holding down the pod and talking additional Hearthstone history revealed by Ben Brode, DreamHack Summer, the concern around Twitch viewership numbers, the best and worst cards of Un'Goro, and community emails. Cont...

#214 - The Angry Chicken: “Actually Insane”

TAC is back for another Hearthstone-fueled episode! This week there's a lot of Lich King expansion speculation, Brode dropped some big conversation-starters in his new PC Gamer interview, we have our Top 8 Wild players, there are many good Wild decks to go try from the qualifiers, and the trio wrap things up with community emails. Cont...

#213 - The Angry Chicken: “Tournament Brode Mode”

It's time to speculate on this week's Angry Chicken because Ben Brode has opened up about Team 5's thoughts on tournament mode. What would a tournament mode even look like? Would it help diffuse the grind of ladder? How much customization would it allow? Brode wrote about many of these subjects on reddit this past week and the TAC trio never sit out an excuse to wish and dream for their most-requested addition to Hearthstone. The crew also talked deck sharing going live, Standard and Wild Secret Mage, and many emails from the community. Cont...

#212 - The Angry Chicken: “Freaking Medivh”

The Angry Chicken is back and there's a lot of budget-Hearthstone talk. With the Peek to the Past Tavern Brawl and a certain incognito slice of bread hitting Legend with a fresh free-to-play account, all of the tavern is a buzz with how to keep the limited card play rolling. The TAC trio also talked the HCT Spring Preliminaries, Ben Brode's recent comments on improving Arena rewards, Control Paladin, and emails from the TAC inbox. Cont...

Cont...

#210 - The Angry Chicken: “Deck Cloning”

The Angry Chicken is back and soon we'll be able to copy and share decks directly in Hearthstone! A new update is on the horizon bringing deck sharing and making it so that we can always complete quests against friends. The TAC trio also talked how it's awesome that the HCT Spring Championship is going to Shanghai, how it's less awesome that many of the qualifying venues are being forced to use Buffalo Wild Wings, the Wild meta, Wild deck recommendations, and emails from the TAC community.
