The Stream Team: Pot o' gold edition, March 11 - 17, 2013

MJ Guthrie

It's a magical time: Throughout this week there will be sightings of leprechauns, lucky shamrocks will sprout up everywhere, and folks will be chasing rainbows hoping to find a special treasure. It's also the time I can say "blarney" without everyone looking at me askance! Yup, Saint Paddy's is right around the corner, the day that capstones a week when untold masses find their inner-Irish self. Those brave enough to admit they've adopted the traditions of this time can stand up and be counted in the poll at the end.

Need more to do while awaiting Sunday's revelry and pinch-a-thon? Why not watch a smorgasbord of tomfoolery on Massively TV. You can join your favorite Stream Team hosts in chat or even in game and be a part the trouble they get themselves into! Just check the schedule for the when and the where. You can also catch previous shows at your own convenience and laugh at the crazy antics displayed (and trust us, they are plenty crazy). It's all waiting for you after the break!

5:00 p.m. EDT: Warstory: Europe in Flames -- Beau
Beau is checking in on this World War II MMORTS because if there's one thing he loves more than playing video games, it's killing Nazis!

7:00 p.m. EDT: EVE Online -- Mike
Mike ventures into the depths of space in search of valuable ore and safe places to mine. Is he doomed for another on-air explosion?

1:00 p.m. & 2:00 p.m. EDT: StarCraft II: HOTS -- Dylan
The swarm is upon us! Arm yourself for two hours of Heart of the Swarm coverage with Massively's own GGraves. He'll take a look at the new expansion, features, loading screens, competitive ladder, and maybe even the epic, story-driven campaign. Join other Massively fans to celebrate Blizzard's latest evolution. Vengeance is here!

3:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft -- Jasmine
Jasmine's Hunter continues questing her way through Pandaria, killing X, gathering Y, and, depending on how generous the queue's feeling, running some dungeons.

5:00 p.m. EDT: A Mystical Land -- Beau
Beau is checking back in on this grand browser-based MMORPG to see just how far it has come since launch. News from the game has been slow coming, so this stream might surprise you!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Free Realms -- Larry
We've moved Family MMO Night one hour earlier this week so that Larry can be more awake. Maybe that will help him win a match or two against his daughter (probably not). Come join us on Server 4 for some carefree Free Realms fun.

8:00 p.m. & 9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
One hour just isn't enough, so join MJ for two hours of EverQuest Two-sday! That should give her plenty of time to get into trouble on a Brewday adventure or in a dungeon... or even both! Join in and be a part of the fun.

5:00 p.m. EDT: Light of Nova -- Beau
Beau's jumping into what seems to be a space-based MMORTS. Instead of growing a city, he'll be adding components to a spaceship. Will it be fun? Watch and see!

7:00 p.m. EDT: World of Tanks -- Mike
World of Tanks returns as Mike hops into his iron death machine and charges into battle. Give him liberty or give him an embarrassing defeat in front of his audience!

9:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. EDT: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
Larry and crew beat the Explosive Conflict tanks last weekend. Can they do it again today? And what about the puzzle boss? Tune in to this week's raid night to find out!

7:00 a.m. & 8:00 a.m. EDT: RIFT -- Psykopig
The Pig had some internet troubles last week, but he is back with a vengeance! Join in as Psykopig takes on a buttload of missions (and probably some rifts) as he tries to get his character to a new and shiny level!

3:00 p.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 -- Jasmine
Jasmine can't actually outrun a centaur, but you can watch her try as she continues her journey to max level. She'll be playing on Yak's Bend; guests are welcome!

8:00 p.m. EDT: DC Universe Online -- MJ
Outfitting her lair is going to take some serious cashola, so MJ needs to complete as many jobs as she can get her gloved hands on. She'll probably rummage through the pockets of any villains she runs across as well.

9:00 p.m. EDT: Aion -- MJ
After jumping off a ledge and hoping to glide (in another game, not life!), MJ realized how desperately she needed her wings back. So Atreia, here she comes! The plan: dive into the Shugo Imperial Tomb while rocking as a Shugo.

2:00 p.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 -- Larry
Guild Wars 2 jumping puzzles are a whole lot of fun. Larry has really taken to them. So hop, skip, and jump to this livestream to watch him and his friends guide you through one of the most challenging puzzles in the game.

11:30 a.m. EDT: SMITE -- Blake
Lunchtime Livecast #56 continues in the visceral world of god vs. god combat known as SMITE. Get ready to be chained because Blake is playing Ares today!

A true day of rest (at least from watching shows live!), so take advantage of it -- rest up for the busy week ahead! Or watch some reruns... or clean the garage...

You have to admit, sometimes The Stream Team shows are pure gold -- comedy gold that is. You might just bust a gut laughing (we know at least one host did!). But luckily, you don't have to chase any rainbows to find these pots of gold! We've got all of last week's episodes all right here for you.

There's another tradition that folks seem to flock to this time of year, one that may or may not have the intended consequences. In fact, it's my assertion that basically everyone has participated in this particular practice at one time or another. So let's see how close I am to the mark. Tell us, have you ever used the line "Kiss me, I'm Irish"? And if so, tell us how that turned out for you!%Poll-81345%%Poll-81349%
Watching the Massively Stream Team play video games is the next best thing to playing them yourself! Join us every Monday morning for MJ's guide to this week's livestream schedule, classic stream reruns from last week, and all the best outtakes and ephemera.
