Episode 14 of The Cavalry features good ol' Kevin Ellis (Multizord), Stephen Parrish (Tankzord) and returning back from Episode 2--it's Totemlydrunk!  Follow him on Twitter @totemlydrunkctr.  Seriously nice guy, and he's kind of all in on this Overwatch business.  Just a bit.

So the episode commences with a discussion of a couple of Jeff Kaplan's recent interviews, which can be found here: http://www.pcgamesn.com/overwatch/overwatch-ranked-matchmaking-will-be-a-part-of-the-beta-to-test-for-release-if-things-go-to-plan

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-02-17-selling-loot-boxes-and-the-trouble-with-ranked-play-blizzard-on-overwatch

Then, it's straight into the tournament scene.  I dare anyone to find someone who invested more time and energy into watching all things Overwatch this past weekend, because Totem knows his stuff.  His insights into the various regional metas, the many different tournaments this weekend and what's in store for the pro scene are definitely worth a listen!

The crew's main discussion was on the matchmaking system. Just please don't let it turn out like Heroes of the Storm's did!

Then it's onto the patch notes.  Is Turretwatch officially over? http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20742334760

Lastly, the Community Content Shoutout goes to JT Machinima and Andrea Storm Kaden, with their Overwatch Rap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unXsheHLPao

Unlucky Episode number 13 of the Cavalry is here, folks!  This week it's your host Kevin Ellis (@Multizord) joined of course by Stephen Parrish (@Tankzord), Matt Zornes (@slamboTV) and again with special guest-host-type-guy, Alex Keeler (@EndBossTV)!

This week we have a more thorough digestion of the beta, and what it's like to be playing Overwatch again. If you would like to taste EndBoss's salty tears about receiving currency in his Legendary loot crate, you can do so here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3uBx1buHSs

After a brief discussion on that, the crew discusses their prospects as potential Community Managers of Overwatch.  The link for the job posting is here (though seriously, let Multi have it, don't click this link): http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/careers/posting.html?id=160004H

Next, it's on to the results of the GosuGamers Weekly #3 EU and NA tournaments, a general link of which is found here: http://www.gosugamers.net/overwatch/events.

Our Main Discussion is on the topic of sensitivity...both in regard to varying control schemes, and our own feelings.

Lastly, we are skipping our The World Needs More Heroes section this week to instead focus on a map.  That is to say, Nepal (aka Nipple), one of the new Control-style maps!  Hear a wide variety of opinions and a few pocket strats to either take home and try out...or sit at home and cry about because you're not in the beta.  50% of the people on this episode feel your pain.

Like a pretzel, Episode 12 of The Cavalry is salty, twisted, and probably not good for you. Host Kevin Ellis aka Multizord is joined again by Stephen Parrish (Tankzord) and Matt Zornes (slambo) as they lay out their reactions to the returning Overwatch beta.

After giving their impressions on the reintroduction of the beta, the trio gives you a quick reminder that the Gosugamers Weekly EU and NA #3 is this weekend: http://www.gosugamers.net/overwatch

The crew then proceeds to hammer out all the new features in Overwatch, starting of course with Jeff Kaplan's beard wipe in his developer commentary video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41DLNBzp68Q

Next, things get purdy with a discussion on Overwatch's new player progression system, and its related cosmetics: http://us.battle.net/overwatch/en/blog/20034301/overwatch-beta-player-progression-preview-2-9-2016

Then it's onto the new Control Mode, Lijiang Tower and Nepal (nipple?), AI/Training Games, and Custom Game modes...whew.  It's a mouthful, or three.

Lastly, an entire episode could have been dedicated to the patch notes, but they went over it anyway! Here they are as well: http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20742184292#post-5

All of this can be summed up in this week's community content shoutout, featured here: http://www.overpwn.com/news/128-overwatch-beta-is-live-progression-system-all-new

Episode 11 is here, and with it, the triumphant return of Kevin Ellis (Multizord), Stephen Parrish (Tankzord), and Matt Sams (Swiftzord)!  Swifty is back with a vengeance.  And this time: IT'S PERSONAL.

The show opens up with a brief discussion about the merits of homelessness.  Then, it's on to the news: there isn't any.  And that, in itself, is newsworthy!

The group discusses the Buzzfeed article, "Which Overwatch Character Are You", and provides their results.  A link to the article can be found here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/awesomer/youre-trying-for-tracer-arent-you#.reEd14lKL6

Next, The Cavalry has announced its Call to Arms! If you're wanting to play with us, or one another when the Beta returns, feel free to post to our Discord channel your battle tag, or send us it via Twitter @TheCavalryShow or by E-mail thecavalryshow@outlook.com.

And finally, the Widowmaker discussion wraps this French Femme Fatale in a neat package.  And this package is a gift that keeps on giving, and does not spoil with age even if the Beta has been down for an eternity now...
