Cheers, loves!  Episode 22 of The Cavalry is here!  Joining us this week are Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, and Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord for some more duo queuing action! No, it's not Zarya Week, sorry sorry. Kind of considering having that be a running gag forever.

Episode 20 is here, with Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord and Matt Zornes aka Slambo!  So let's just get right into it.

Our Community Content shoutout this week goes to The Overview, which had a certain special guest--Jeff Kaplan! He had a few things to discuss, including something particularly intriguing.

COMPETITIVE PLAY?!

So naturally, the Cavalry had a thing or two to say about that as well.

Then, it was onto Tournament Talk, featuring the One Nation of Gamers Invitational tournament, which can be found at: http://www.gosugamers.net/overwatch/events/482-one-nation-of-gamers-invitational

And here's that article about IDDQD: http://www.gosugamers.net/overwatch/news/35087-iddqd-roster-sees-surprising-changes

Greetings, travelers! This week's episode of the Cavalry features Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord and Matt Zornes aka Slambo. Recorded on Monday, they did not yet get into the ranked system implemented into Overwatch.  But there was still plenty to talk about!

First, it was a chat about the Developer Update video on Netcode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTH2ZPgYujQ

And then--more details about Tracer in Heroes of the Storm have emerged! 

http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/blog/20081853

The crew apologizes for the temporary name of last week's episode. It's just that Tracer has so much spunk, she...you get it. Anyway, Buttgate continues with Jeff Kaplan's second response: http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20743015583?page=11#210

And the petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/708/952/914/activision-blizzard-please-remove-guns-from-your-game-%22overwatch.%22/

Next, the Animated Short "Alive" basically rules: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyBUMabtslI

Gosugamers results went over for Weekly #10, but then also...yeah they totally punked us with their April Fool's gag: http://www.gosugamers.net/overwatch/news/34997-gosugamers-weeklies-now-using-hero-pick-ban-system

Lastly, randomized Control Maps was the main discussion, and at the time this update hadn't been released yet. So, here's the original link that made the crew think it was coming soon: http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20742965844

And lastly, the Community Content Shoutout this week goes to the Oversheet, found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QgTenq3s-YesFgb-CPI6yIPpp4K9xot7LhTBo3Tm0Pk/edit#gid=1751764739
