#202 - The Angry Chicken: “Un’Goro Card Eruption”

#201 - The Angry Chicken: “Hearthonomics”

The Angry Chicken is back and the trio has shaken off the confetti from episode 200. Hearthstone is continuing to rumble from the oncoming march of Un'Goro-dwelling dinosaurs. This week BlizzCon 2017 dates were announced, Hearthstone is getting more expensive in Europe and the U.K., Danny Pudi is exploring Un'Goro, Disguised Toast took meme decks to PAX and it went better than expected, the crew talked about the new Arena meta, and there were many emails to be read. Cont...

#200 - The Angry Chicken: “How did we get here?”

The Angry Chicken turns 200 this week in style! Garrett, Jocelyn, and Dills dressed in their finest and were joined by Hearthstone's Lead Game Producer, Yong Woo! They looked back on almost four years of Hearthstone, improvements, growing pains, esports, and much more. The TAC trio also picked Yong's brain about the latest expansion, Journey to Un'Goro.

#199 - The Angry Chicken: “Must go faster”

Any body hear that? It's a, um... It's an impact tremor, that's what it is. We're fairly alarmed here. And those tremors are coming from gargantuan dinosaurs, elementals, and fauna because we are going on a journey to Un'Goro in Hearthstone's next expansion! Blizzard (and some talking heads in flannel shirts) announced the next expansion, two new keywords, a new minion type, and previewed multiple new cards this week. The TAC crew dawned their explorer hats and blazed a trail through all the latest announcements surrounding the game. Cont...

#198 - The Angry Chicken: “Unicorn Funeral”

The Year of Mammoth is coming to stomp out Jocelyn's hopes for a Unicorn-themed Standard year. Team 5 made many announcements about changes coming with Hearthstone's second Standard year. The Hall of Fame is a new moniker that will be given to Basic/Classic cards that are moving to Wild exclusively, three full-sized expansions will release this year, Adventures are going away but single-player story content is coming for free, a Wild Tavern Brawl is on its way, and we're getting a new Rogue hero. The TAC trio also discussed the latest Developer Insights stream, the size of the Hearthstone development team, and a Dragon Priest deck aimed at making pirates walk their own plank. Cont...

#197 - The Angry Chicken: “Smaller-Time Buccaneer”

The time for talk is over, the time for action is now on this week's Angry Chicken! The Hearthstone team announced some big changes for Ranked Play and a couple of the most aggravating cards. The TAC trio dive into the Spirit Claws and Small-Time Buccaneer nerfs, the Ranked "floors" being added, and the HCT preliminaries from the past weekend. The crew also covered Aggro Pirate Rogue (which you should get in your games with while you can) and took a few emails from the inbox. Cont...

#196 - The Angry Chicken: “Big Maybe News”

The onslaught of maybe-news for Hearthstone continues this week. Ben Brode confirms a patch is coming this month (but may not include balance changes), Iksar gave more specifics on what Team 5 is testing internally for Arena, the next Hearthstone expansion may have leaked and may be called the Lost Secrets of Un'Goro, Dills and Garrett break down Jade Shaman (which has no Pirates and no Troggs or Golems), and they round the show out with some emails and game stories. Cont...

#194 - The Angry Chicken: “Return to Rogue”

The Angry Chicken may be a little burnt out on Pirates but that's not stopping them from playing them in their Rogue decks! On this week's show the TAC crew talk about Ben Brode's recent Reddit post, how Hearthstone apparently made a ton of money last year, the Winter Veil card back returning, the latest version of Miracle Rogue (spoiler: there are Pirates), and round things out with emails from the inbox.
