The Stream Team: All the leaves are brown edition, November 18 - 24, 2013

MJ Guthrie

And the sky is gray! Yes folks, there might very well be some California dreaming going on as fall starts morphing into winter here in the northern hemisphere, but we know that most of us really have dreams of lands like Tyria or Telon instead. That whole outdoor weather thing won't even affect us when we are all snug as a bug in an MMO in front of our monitors -- barring any storms that threaten our internet connections, that is! While you are all comfy indoors, you can enjoy some Stream Team adventures on Massively TV and weigh in on your favorite in-game weather systems in this week's Outtakes.

4:00 p.m. EST: Minecraft -- Beau
Beau is going to be joining a large multiplayer server in order to ask just how MMO is Minecraft! Join him in this Rise and Shiny stream as he puts the game through its paces.

7:00 p.m. EST: Super Hero Squad Online -- Larry
Family MMO night says "Hero Up!" as it takes Larry and his eight-year-old son on a trip through Hero City in Marvel's Super Hero Squad Online. 'Nuf said!

3:00 p.m. EST: Final Fantasy XIV -- Jasmine
Come see what sort of creepy monsters await in the musty depths of FFXIV's second dungeon, Tam-Tara Deepcroft!

9:00 p.m. EST: EverQuest II -- MJ
It's been a week -- that's plenty of time for MJ to create a new character, right? Right? Just barely! So join her as she starts romping through life as a Channeler, healing friends with the tip of her arrows, or something like that.

7:00 p.m. EST: DotA 2 -- Mike
Mike leaps into the DotA 2's Three Spirits update to check out one of the new heroes, participate in some Diretide events, and sigh over the terrible decisions made in public games. Tune in for an up-close look at Valve's MOBA sensation.

9:00 p.m. EST: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
When you're down to the wire and don't know whom else to turn to, you call Larry and the Nefarious Intent raid team. The Dread Masters need taken down, and we are just the team to do it.

10:00 a.m. EST: Hearthstone -- Richie
Every once in a while a game comes along that sucks away all your free time and leaves you wanting more. Hearthstone is that game for Richie. Join him as he drafts a new arena deck and jumps into the fray.

9:00 p.m. EST: The Secret World -- MJ
Things have gone so well in scenarios with the group, let's see MJ really test herself by trying one scenario solo. If that goes well, then it's Elite dungeon time!

4:00 p.m. EST: Aion -- MJ
MJ's Songweaver has felt so neglected, so it's time to dust off her wings and get back into the thick of things! The levels will flow like water... like the blood of the Elyos!

7:00 p.m. EST: World of Warcraft -- Mike
Mike continues his last-ditch push to 90 with some Mists of Pandaria questing. Can he get there before Warlords of Draenor launches? Probably.

1:00 p.m. EST: Neverwinter -- Larry
This is our last weekend building in the Neverwinter Foundry. Join Larry as he attempts to complete the Massively reader quest!

If all your leaves are brown (and red and yellow), go gather them into a big pile and then jump in! What else are you going to do on a day with no streams?

Rain or shine, the show has gone on! Our reruns right here that will never be in danger of cancellation due to weather, so enjoy whenever and wherever you like.

With all this talk about weather, we'd love to know which game (or game-to-be) you think does weather best. And which world has the best representation of the fall season, be it a persistent zone, an actual weather cycle, or a seasonal event? Share your thoughts in the comments below for a chance to win a weekend autumn cruise on Massively's infamous golden yacht!

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.
