Cheers, loves! Episode XX of The Cavalry is here! Joining us this week are Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord, and Matt Zornes aka Slambo.

Let it never be said that The Cavalry doesn't reach out to its listeners...in fact sometimes, we have them on the show! This week we feature two of our listeners, BlazzinBob and Melarina to help us discuss our end of season pushes.

But before that, there's more schtuff to talk about. The Lords of the Storm podcast is taking part in the Heroes Charity Brawl 2, and the link for that is here:  https://www.gofundme.com/HeroesCharityBrawl2

Next, we will have a chance to root for our hero, our savior Papa Jeffy Kap-Kap as he seeks to slay his opponents in Quake: http://wwg.com/esports/2017/02/18/faceit-quakeworld-tournament-pits-top-games-executives-in-1v1-qu/

We then discuss the Server Browsers because yeah, why not.

And after that, it's a discussion about pushing the ladder.  Our guests' insights may indeed prove useful to you. And if not, it's still just cool that they push that ladder together. Here's an article we refer to mid-discussion: http://compete.kotaku.com/crafty-overwatch-players-are-staying-up-late-to-get-bet-1792455009

In Tournament Talk, a brief look at the Enter the Arena tournament, as well as the Tespa Collegiate Series of Overwatch.

Community Content Shoutout goes out to a remix that would make Lucio himself jealous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9b11NYTM3w

Tankzord's plea this week is to learn a healer during the downtime between seasons.  Pretty, pretty please.

Cheers, loves! Episode 52 of The Cavalry is here! Joining us this week are Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord, and since Matt Zornes was unable to make it, we thought we'd just throw in a very special guest...

This week The Cavalry is joined by Patrick Beja, from the Overwatchers podcast as well as the Instance and several others on frenchspin.com!  It's the first show of 2017 for all of us!

We start by getting to know Patrick a little better, and then it's onto the news. Blizzard is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Diablo series across all Blizzard games! http://www.idigitaltimes.com/diablo-20th-anniversary-events-see-what-blizzards-got-overwatch-hearthstone-and-more-576077

Then in our Main Discussion, we go over what Blizzard can do to ensure Overwatch keeps its momentum moving forward in 2017.

Out of nowhere appears our The World Needs More Heroes segment, this time featuring Sombra!  Oh boy, I know Zornes is gonna be pissed he missed this one.

And we round out the show with the Community Content shoutout and an E-mail response. The dinoflask YouTube channel features Jeffy Kap Kap at his best...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Wv2Bkh2hJk&feature=share

Also an article related to the "drawblem": https://pvplive.net/c/overwatch-devs-want-to-reduce-draws-on-assault-map  We almost named this episode "The Drawblem with Patrick Beja" but liked the first one better.

Thanks again to Patrick Beja for joining us! It was a pleasure indeed. You can follow him on Twitter @NotPatrick, and the Overwatchers podcast @OverwatchCast as well as many other shows!
