The Stream Team: Labor Day edition, September 2 - 8, 2013

The Stream Team Labor Day edition, September 2  8, 2013
To the youngsters, Labor Day has always always seemed misnomer since folks actually get to take time off from school and work. So a more appropriate moniker would be Play Day, amirite? But the older crowd knows that the day was meant to honor the hard work and contributions of workers. So in the spirit of honoring hard work, we pay homage to those who tireless toil to entertain us -- The Stream Team! Hats of to you, and a three-BBQ-rib salute to boot!

Want to join us in this week-long celebration for our streamers? Then tune in to Massively TV and watch a live show or two and catch a few reruns as well. We've got all you need to know right here. (For the snacks, however, you're on your own.)

7:00 p.m. EDT: Hearthstone -- Mike
Mike skips his weekly EVE stream in favor of tossing cards on tables and watching them explode. Tune in and see what has him obsessed with this digital CCG.

9:00 p.m. EDT: DotA 2 -- Dylan
Come enjoy some late-night MOBA action with Dylan and his hearty clan as they chop trees, gather resources, explore, and engage in diplomatic conversations with opposing factions. Didn't you know DotA is a strategic, immersive experience? You might even make some new MOBA friends. Honestly.

10:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft -- Dylan
Gear up for the next content update for World of Warcraft with Dylan and his Shaman, Gravewaves! Discuss the hype, talk about your favorite Mists of Pandaria content, or sit there quietly and enjoy the stream. It's your choice, viewer. Choose wisely.

9:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. EDT: Champions Online -- Psykopig
The newly created characters and Rhinus are still ready to get jiggy in Champions Online! Come join in as the Pig has more super-powered adventures!

8:00 p.m. EDT: DC Universe Online -- MJ
Last week's SOE grab bag poll had DCUO come in a close second, so tonight MJ dons her cape and flies straight into adventure.

9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
Stepping away from the Golden Path, MJ heads back for a few rounds on her favorite Fury. Join in and see what trouble... I mean, adventures... she gets into.

7:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warplanes -- Mike
Fly the unfriendly skies with Mike as he dives, rolls, and crashes his way to inevitable defeat.

8:00 p.m. EDT: The Secret World -- MJ
MJ has a new toy but not enough AP to use it. So this week is all about running missions fast to collect some. Chop-chop!

9:00 p.m. EDT: Mabinogi -- Beau
Join Beau and familiar (and powerful) CM Sabina as they explore Mabinogi's Saga Iria chapter 10! This will be the last of their awesome streams together (unless they do a fashion one), so come wish them well!

11:00 p.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 -- Richie
Guild Wars 2's Super Adventure Box is back, and Richie is ready to dive in and give it a try. Get ready for pure 8-bit bliss!

5:00 p.m. EDT: City of Steam - Beau
Beau is finally taking a dive into the browser-based world of City of Steam, and you'll be there to see what happens. He's played it before, so expect some new player stuff as well as more experienced wanderings!

9:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. EDT: Final Fantasy XIV -- MJ
Do you think servers will be sorted enough to let MJ in to play? It's a possibility, so stop in and check out the rebirth of the game.

6:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft -- Mike
Mike hops back into Azeroth for a little random group healing. What could go wrong?
