1:53:46 - Shoutouts

  • To Sorna for giving us an iTunes review with the title “Make technically pvp podcast great again.”  
    • Their review says, “This podcast is great and one of the best for player versus player.  I would have given this a five star rating easy a few months ago. However, lately the main host seems like he is miserable discussing WOW PVP lately. I haven’t been able to listen for long as it doesn’t seem like his heart is in it anymore.  Anyway, keep up the good work and I’ll check back in 2019 and re-review.”
  • SSDS shout out to his teammates
