The Stream Team: Oktoberfest edition, September 30 - October 6, 2013

MJ Guthrie

It's that time of year folks! OK, OK -- so it is always some time of year. And most have something of import that happened during said time. But this is Oktoberfest! Yah, I thought that would get your attention. Now, did you know that Oktoberfest is the annual celebration commemorating a royal Bavarian wedding back in 1810? Well now you do! And here you thought that it was only about the sausages and the beer. Who says gaming sites aren't educational?

You can learn other impressive things by watching The Stream Team on Massively TV! Things like how to survive leaping off a cliff, the best places to hide in order to ambush during PvP, and who to avoid high-fives from (especially while in planes). Make sure you don't miss out on any of the important learning opportunities this week.

9:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. EDT: Age of Conan -- Psykopig
Psykopig is heading into different-colored pastures this week as he goes back to his man-ventures in Age of Conan. Join in the brutality!

2:00 p.m. EDT: TERA -- Dylan
Join Dylan for another look at endgame content in TERA. The action-based combat is a favorite, so join him in the chatroom to discuss game mechanics, boss fights, and how to properly kill easy mobs with a hard class!

7:00 p.m. EDT: EVE Online -- Mike
Curious about what PvP is like in EVE Online? Tune in to this week's stream as Mike works to find a fair fight and finish it without losing his ship/pride.

2:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft -- Dylan
Join GGraves on his Shaman as we put the finishing touches on Burning Crusade! Wrath of the Lich King is right around the corner, so make sure you're in the chatroom to discuss your favorite expansion, healing roles, and leveling alts.

3:00 p.m. EDT: Final Fantasy XIV -- Jasmine
Jasmine shows viewers life after (level) 50. There'll be lots of multiclass leveling, crafting, gathering, and everyone's favorite "what now" activity: fishing.

8:00 p.m. & 9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
Today's the day all excuses go out the window! Since everyone can get a level 85 Heroic Character, there's no reason not to join MJ in the Withered Lands. So, what are you waiting for?

7:00 p.m. EDT: Ultima Online -- Mike
Mike's first MMO was World of Warcraft, which means he's painfully out of the loop when it comes to the classics. Check out this first entry in an ongoing series where he hops into some MMO classics of yore.

8:00 p.m. EDT: The Secret World -- MJ
MJ's first run into the Facility (Elite) was a bit rough, so join her again as she smooths out the wrinkles and shows that Core who's boss!

9:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. EDT: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
SWTOR Update 2.4: The Dread War releases on Tuesday, and the raid team is eager to jump right in. Ride along tonight as they venture into new content for the very first time.

5:00 p.m. EDT: Aion -- MJ
MJ feels the need to make some music, so join her on Tiamat with her little Asmodian Songweaver as she faces life in the 20s with a song of death on her harp.

9:00 p.m. EDT: Fallen Earth -- Beau
It's been way, way too long since Beau has last jumped into Fallen Earth. Will the earth still be a post-apocalyptic wasteland? Probably, but it's worth finding out!

10:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 -- Richie
Richie is back in Tyria to check out the new Twilight Assault patch in Guild Wars 2. Tuning in to this two-hour show is prudent because Quaggan loves you.

7:00 p.m. EDT: Firefall -- Mike
Mike revisits the world of New Eden to shoot some bugs and thump some thumping... things.

11:30 a.m. EDT: SMITE -- Blake
Blake has finally caught up on his tour of the gods in SMITE! Tune in this week to find out what he does next. If there is a new god out, he'll have it for you in Lunchtime Livecast #79!

Today is the perfect day to kick back and relax with nothing to do. You know what that's like, right? No? Me neither -- so let's try it out!

Don't think of these as reruns -- think of them as study aids! And you can study at your own convenience. Perfect, isn't it?

Highlight Reel
Speaking of learning things, if you've ever wanted to see Stream Team members willing to be a guinea pig in some game company experiment, then this is the highlight for you!

So here's the question for this week: What do you think about a Massively version of the holiday? We could call it MMOktoberfest and everyone could indulge in copious quantities of games for weeks on end. Yea? Nay? What say you all?%Poll-84829%
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.
