236: FanFest Group Therapy Feat. Brisc, Frost, Jin, and More

4 Guests, 2 Hosts, 1 Puzzle

-Possibly the most guests we’ve ever had: Brisc Rubal, Frost Ees OP, the returning Jin’Taan, and Golden Elite member Mark Havoc

-FanFest on the ground: venue, attendee reactions, after party shenanigans

-FanFest as she is played: CCP’s announcements, whether they hit the mark, how players are taking the changes in the week since, and the baffling mysteries of CCP’s marketing strategies
