In this episode we review the exciting news in the world of Overwatch. 

We're down Multizord this week so, this week it's just Slambo and Tank keeping you up to date on all the information you need to know.

Cheers loves, the Cavalry is here! And this is Episode 29! Complete with a new intro sequence! Also, we have a lot in store for you this week. We're joined by Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Matt Zornes aka Slambo, and Alex Keeler aka Endboss.

The crew begins by discussing how Overwatch eclipsed League of Legends in Korean game cafes. Truly, a big deal.

Then, it's onto the Developer Update on Competitive Play that Jeff Kaplan released. There's just so much to cover on it. The link's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAOaXSVZVTM&feature=youtu.be

Kaplan also made a long blue post detailing the direction the game is going, found here: http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20745285677

Then it's onto Tournament Talk, and this week we look forward to the ESL International Overwatch tournament and its huge prize pool. A link about this is here: http://www.eslgaming.com/article/esl-host-first-international-overwatch-competition-six-figure-prize-pool-gamescom-2016-2925

A really quick Main Discussion ensues about importing different guns from other games. Just for the hell of it.

And then it's onto the main event...it's Reaper week!  Death comes! Hello hello hello!

Lastly, the patch notes are impactful. RIP McCree. Just kidding, he's still decent, but we've got some tips on how to play him differently. Patch notes:

Cheers, loves! Episode 28 of The Cavalry is here! Joining us this week are Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord, and Matt Zornes aka Slambo.

It's another week in Future Earth, and this time there's plenty to discuss. Probably too much to fit Zarya into, sorry guys. So! Without further ado, let's start with that MMR carryover forum post, shall we? It's here: http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20745145674?page=1#post-9

Then, the crew discusses the delightfully lengthy interview with Jeff Kaplan in Eurogamer: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-06-07-overwatch-blizzard-answers-the-big-questions

The mentioned PCgamer article is here as well, but you probably know about the nerfs by now because they totally happened the day after recording this thing: http://www.pcgamer.com/blizzard-tentatively-aims-its-nerf-gun-at-widowmaker/

Then as a part of Tournament Talk, Slambo recommends a really handy calendar doc that will point you in the right direction of all things competitive Overwatch: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16cLpQtu8TYWeEaFkuhOyhXo0zR0uZl8MfDjmAXRW2Bc/edit#gid=1557066390

A quick look at what the future for Overwatch may hold in store is done by our hosts, as well as a write in response from Edanar (as we totally planned on doing this last week but ended up just talking about a bunch of junk...rat).

Lastly, the Community Content Shoutout goes out to the future of eSports--a truly electronic sport: http://kotaku.com/smart-players-turn-overwatch-into-a-sports-game-1781186265

Cheers, loves! Episode 27 of The Cavalry is here! Joining us this week are Kevin Ellis aka Multizord, Stephen Parrish aka Tankzord, and Matt Zornes aka Slambo. But we also have a very special guest.  That's right, it's Edanar (pronounced E-DAY-ner) from the Initiative Overwatch podcast! Hooowee do we have a show for y'all tonight!

After introducing Edanar, it's into the news. The Cafalry has highly differing opinions on the Blizzard/Facebook collaboration, and the link we discuss is found here: http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/5747-Blizzard-Adding-Facebook-Login-and-Facebook-Live-Streaming-Blizzard-Adding-Facebook-Login-and-Facebook-Live-Streaming

Then, Overwatch has how many players again? http://blizzard.gamespress.com/OVERWATCH-IS-A-GLOBAL-HIT-WITH-7-MILLION-PLAYERSAND-COUNTING

Elon Musk game endorsement! But I thought ASI supercomputers were supposed to expand beyond the realm of human understanding at an exponential speed, Mr. Musk. You need to come on the show and explain this to us.  Seriously, open invitation. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/739594006762393600

Hammer down!  The ban hammer has been dropped hard. Don’t cheat! http://kotaku.com/thousands-of-overwatch-players-have-already-been-banned-1780109893?utm_campaign=Socialflow_Kotaku_Facebook&utm_source=Kotaku_Facebook&utm_medium=Socialflow

Onto Tournament Talk, Slambo discusses his local Las Vegas tournament scene and his team's second place finish. Let me guess that there was money on the line, because you know. Vegas.

And lastly, we bring you the latest in hero discussions during our The World Needs More Heroes section, this time featuring Zary...Junkrat! I mean, Junkrat. Hooooowee, that Hayseed skin be lookin mighty fine.

Mighty fine indeed.
