On a LowPop server or faction? Talk to us!

100 Tauren Druid
LowPopWow is a new bi-weekly podcast that discusses the rewards and challenges of playing on a low population server or faction in the World of Warcraft. Our goal is to acknowledge the challenges by sharing strategies that players and guilds can use to improve the quality of their game play, and to recognize and celebrate the rewards that come with this unique environment and culture. To do this we draw our guests from the player-base, and ideally each episode offers a round-table discussion of that week's topic by people from a variety of servers and factions.

The show airs live with a chat room at 4pm CST every other Sunday on twitch.tv/lowpopwow and is hosted by Hathorr, who is also the newest co-host of MyEpicHeals.

You can follow us on Twitter @LowPopWow, like us on Facebook at LowPopWow, or visit out website at www.lowpopwow.com. We currently are a labor of love, and are not sponsored or affiliated with any media networks.

We are currently looking for guests, topics, suggestions, and audio clips!

Upcoming episodes:

Sunday, April 14: Learning to Raid
On low pop realms, raiding guild often do not have a wide pool of experienced raiders ready to jump into normal or heroic raids as soon as they are recruited. Similarly, players who are looking to start raiding often are at a disadvantage when it comes to securing a raid spot on these realms. How do guilds and players make the jump from LFR to normal raids?

Sunday, April 28: What we Love!
While Blizzard often has the best of intentions when introducing new features to the game, they can sometimes have unintended or exaggerated consequences for those on low pop realms. This episode seeks to identify and explain what we love about low pop so that when calls for change go out, there is a resource that establishes what we value and don't want to lose with future game changes.

The economy is most notably horrible.
Gathering materials are cheap, and the AH moves slow. So you have low cost materials that don't sell. And then finished goods are ridiculously expensive and scarce.

Unsanctified, Episode 4 was all about making money on low pop economies, and in another month we will revisit the issue from the average player perspective--how to get what you need when you aren't one of the big money-makers. This one is more about community though--making connections, helping each other out, doing events that extend across guilds.
