In Episode 6, Kevin Ellis aka Multizord alongside Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord, and Travis Standiford aka BSTS talk some Overwatch stuff.  News has emerged that Jeff Kaplan has not shaved since Blizzcon, a fact which is most intriguing. Also, the group discusses his recent video addressing many other lesser community concerns.  The link to that video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKG8Yx6F7uc

The main discussion is about the Beta servers going down over the holidays, as announced in the following article: http://us.battle.net/overwatch/en/blog/19981654/

Tournament Talk discusses the GosuGamers EU and NA #2 tournaments on Twitch, day one of which can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6CAVGMdh8M

And lastly, may the lord have Mercy on your soul as you try and learn something about healing people in Overwatch.

Episode 5 of The Cavalry features Kevin Ellis, aka Multizord as well as Stephen Parrish (Tankzord), Travis Standiford (BSTS) and Ryan Rieder (TBKzord).  The crew starts with stats from the stress test weekend.  Then, they discuss the matches between Fnatic and Eccentric Gaming, which can be found here:

After that, it's on to a discussion about tick rate--hence the show title. You know, because it was about tick rate and Bastion, who's a robot?  Yeahh...anyway here's that tick rate article they mentioned:

Then, it's on to everybody's favorite playable turret, Bastion!  Our hosts delve deep into his stats and abilities, strategies behind him (that's the counter strategy...GET behind him), and how he'd apply to Heroes of the Storm.

Lastly, Community Content Shoutout goes to teamspoh on Reddit, with a neat scoreboard and write up:

On the fourth installment of The Cavalry, co-hosts Multizord, Tankzord and BSTS sit down with special guest (and likely future continuing co-host) Swiftzord!  They begin discussing the latest Overwatch stress test weekend, as well as their weekend LAN shenanigans. SheLANigans? They also go over a very small patch, found here:

This is followed by a hero deep dive on Winston, everyone's favorite moon "ape" at 32:15.

This week Kevin (Multizord), Stephen (Tankzord) and Travis (BSTS) stress out over the upcoming stress test weekend.  But as Stephen is in the Beta now, the show will go on! Unless the stress test crashes the game forever. The rambling continues with a set of pros and cons about allowing players to run duplicate heroes on the same team.  And then, they get into their first ever hero deep dive, into Soldier: 76.  The community content shout out section features the Overstalk website, as well as the Learn Overwatch YouTube channel.  All relevant links are listed below:

Blizzcon wrap up ensues, discussing all the new characters and map announced, as well as an overview of the Overwatch panels.

At some point, Totem mentions some useful spreadsheets detailing the heroes' stat pools, damage, ability damage and the like.  These can be found here:
