HD 67: The Bitching of Yesterday

verbal-release The Bitching of Yesterday

Ok, I’m going to say it. 2016 really sucks.

We of the High Drag Podcast have had a bitch of time getting our respective real life crap to gel together. When we do manage to come together, it takes forever and a day or so to get the nuts and bolts tightened, the sparkle glue spackled on and the duct tape to hold. Episode #67 was no exception! We recorded it during the summer CCP hiatus during the Shadow of the Serpent event, and by the time we kicked the tires and sent it out the shop, it’s long….long…over.

We will apologize for the stale content, but the discussion is good and (hopefully) still relevant. In this ep, we talk about the alliance tourney announcements and command links in our first segment. After the break, we go into a great discussion of the Dailies and the Shadow of the Serpent event. Hopefully, you enjoy the discourse, and not worry too much about the fact that it’s over a month old. o.O

Fin revisits his Hecate fit with a twist of new implants in the Yin.

Otherwise, it’s just three guys bitching…about yesterday stuff.

HD 66: I Get my Kicks…

In typical times, we would be experiencing a post Fanfest drought of information, while simultaneously coming down off of our hype “High”. But these are not typical times. Thanks to the release of the Citadels, as well as a clear road map as to whats coming further down the road, we can enjoy an endless supply of content (Both in game, and in the meta).

In this episode we discuss:

The o7 Show
Daily Opportunities (And the skill points associated with them)
Citadels

HD 65 Idiot Children In A Post Citadel World

Citadel
Idiot Children In A Post Citadel World

Hey, High Drag Listeners!! Episode 65 brings us a small crew with some fun and intense discussion. We talk about the Citadel Patch and Fan Fest with some opinions that FanFest didn’t really bring the big hoopla, but generated some excitement regardless. We talk about first impressions of Citadel and Fin casts his wisdom with the Rupture. I must say that my ability to play “devils advocate” is subtle, no matter how idiotic I sound.

Cry Havoc

And war has come to New Eden, and what a war it is! Episode 64 brings the group of misfits, under the tutelage of Professor Wizard Fintarue, into a discussion of the war, and what can new players do to get involved. The battle lines were drawn, however, with Ash and Kyle on the “Allies” side and RoAnnon and Fishbone on the evil “Axis” side! Professor Wizard Fin reins in the hostility with a low SP Merlin fit in the Yin section.

HD 63: Doctor Greygal and Mr. Hyde


Doctor Greygal and Mr Hyde
Elvira

Hey there High Drag Listeners! Episode 63 was a LOT of fun to record! Not only did we have Greygal, an incredible lady from Redemption Road join us but we also got hot dropped by CSM candidate Mr. Hyde113. Granted, by the time this episode gets posted, it will be some time after the CSM elections, but nonetheless, we had a very nice discussion over all about pvp in a couple of different flavors! We go into a Yin of Fin bonus with a big news drop (no, he’s not leaving the stream) and THREE ship fits from our guest panel members!

You guys are going to love this episode!!

HD 62: Intelligent Conversation with DomanarK

CSN


Intelligent Conversation With DomanarK

Welcome back faithful listeners!! Episode 62 was a little slow in the making since RL had me really really busy. As it goes, we’re only a little dated. However, the discussion is still pretty good as Kyle Yanowski joins us from Korea and DomanarK from Des Moines and somehow a couple of Goons snuck in to discuss the latest patch. We are without the services of Ashterothi this episode and you can tell we struggle to actually talk for two hours. We really need to get Ash back. Due to the changes, there was no ship fit in the Yin of Fin this time around, but he takes a few minutes to describe the technique called “Slingshotting” or “Rubber Banding”. Tune into the Yin segment to hear how to counter that!

HD 61 Scooby Doo and Protovarious Too

High Drag 61 was a LOT of fun to record, but regretfully, I wasn’t in it much…

I was loosing my voice at the time of recording so rather than bow out, I asked my good friend (and friend of the podcast), Protovarious if he’d be interested in sitting in the first chair. After only a little persuasion, he agreed and we went on to do a show that made me laugh until I gagged. Ash, Fin, RoAnnon and Proto (with a lurking Random) discuss the upcoming proposed changes in module tiericide, the aftermath of the Skill point injectors and a great Yin of Fin!

I’d have contributed more to the show if it wasn’t for that dog, and those darned kids…
