The Stream Team: Celebrating milestones edition, October 14 - 20, 2013

MJ Guthrie

Back on October 1st, The Stream Team column celebrated its very first birthday. One year means 52 weeks of Outtakes and antics. Come January 3rd, Massively TV will celebrate its third birthday. That's 156 weeks of MMO viewing goodness! Wow, when I put it that way, I feel old.

Throughout our gaming lives we have a myriad of milestones, like how long we've ventured through the virtual worlds of MMOs (nine years for me last month), our first max level characters (does Master Dancer count?), and our first rage-quit (OK, so I still have some to reach!). And with Massively TV, you can watch your favorite hosts hit any number of milestones and celebrate yours at the same time.

3:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft -- Dylan
Frostmourne hungers for the soul of Gravewaves as he heads into Wrath dungeons. You've watched as the restoration Shaman developed into a more powerful weapon; now join in the chat to share tales of the leveling experience!

7:00 p.m. EDT: EVE Online -- Mike
Mike heads into low-sec space and looks for some sweet, sweet ore. Can his Venture make it through unscathed?

9:00 p.m. EDT: World of Battles -- Beau
Beau is checking out World of Battles for Rise and Shiny this week. Sure it looks good, but looks can be deceiving. If you're a fan of epic battles between massive armies, this game might -- or might not -- be for you.

3:00 p.m. EDT: Final Fantasy XIV -- Jasmine
Jasmine shows off one of FFXIV's nifty features: the ability to level every class on a single character. Today she'll quest her way into Archer, beginning her journey toward Bard!

4:00 p.m. EDT: Hearthstone -- Dylan
Warlock decks vs. the world! Tune in Tuesday to watch more Hearthstone. Dylan will take a look at customizing his deck and possibly spend a few rounds in the Arena.

5:00 p.m. EDT: Free Realms -- Beau
Ah, Free Realms... possibly the most relaxing place on Earth. It's time for Beau to take a break, build a fort, play some minigames, and possibly hang out with some cool people!

9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
Life at 85+ is great, but MJ's little Paladin is feeling neglected. So this EverQuest Two-sday will be all about level 45-50 content. Groupmates welcome.

7:00 p.m. EDT: DC Universe Online -- Mike
By viewer request, Mike leaps small buildings in a single bound and does... quests... faster than a speeding bullet. He'll also punch some villains in the face.

8:00 p.m. EDT: The Secret World -- MJ
As promised, this week MJ takes on the challenge of acquiring the rocket launcher. Join her as she earns the right to blow things up with a really big gun.

8:00 a.m. & 9:00 a.m. EDT: Age of Conan -- Psykopig
The Man-venture goes forward! No feat is too small, no sword is too big! Join in the fun as the Pig adventures through Hyboria and tackles the Barbarians.

3:00 p.m. EDT: Aion -- MJ
Aion, take three! The gaming gods have conspired to keep MJ out of Atreia the last two weeks, but she's determined to get some harp time in.

9:00 p.m. EDT: Lord of the Rings Online -- MJ
Admit it -- you want to live in Middle-earth! Everyone does. And tonight MJ is going to live out a part of that dream. Tune in as she saves some part of the word during a skirmish.

10:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 -- Richie
The Bloody Prince is haunting Guild Wars 2, and Richie is diving in to check out what new Halloween festivities ArenaNet has cooked up. Maybe he'll even try his luck at the clocktower jumping puzzle so you can laugh at him as he falls over and over and over again.

4:00 p.m. EDT: Dungeons and Dragons Online -- Beau
It's time to check in on Dungeons and Dragons Online again. Should Beau just make a new character to check whether the introductory levels have changed? Help him decide!

7:00 p.m. EDT: TERA -- Mike
Mike dusts off his tanking shield and heads back into the monster-filled dungeons of this very pretty MMO.

11:30 a.m. EDT: SMITE -- Blake
In Lunchtime Livecast #81 Blake leaves his fate to the gods: It's Match of the Day time!

7:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m. EDT: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
Thankfully, the SWTOR raid night team drops into operations more than one night a week. To make up for the issues on Wednesday, Larry and his crew are streaming tonight! Don't miss it.

Sometimes just getting through a workday is a milestone in itself, so there's no opportunity to catch the streams you want live. Luckily, the reruns are right here for you when you get the chance for some downtime.

Highlight Reel
Sometimes milestones come in the form of things you don't necessarily want -- like reaching a record high death count. See how close this streamer gets to reaching that milestone while on the battlefield.

In the spirit of milestones, can you guess who the first scheduled streamer for Massively was? First right answer gets a gold star! After making your guess, tell us about your favorite/most memorable milestone that you have reaching in games (or life).

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.
