The Starting Zone, a World of Warcraft podcast for new players looks to expand it's helpful series!
WHAT IS The Starting Zone...
World of Warcraft is a big game. With over 12 million active subscribers, WoW has become the defacto standard in online gaming.
But with a game of this magnitute, it’s easy for new players to become quickly overwhelmed by all that the game has to offer. With over 85 levels to traverse, twelve races and ten classes to choose from, someone needs to help guide these new players through the process.
In April of 2009, two lifelong friends found a lack of podcasts that were aimed at this new player base. With zero podcasting experience and only a handful of ideas, The Starting Zone was launched. In less than four months, the podcast was listed on iTunes New & Noteworthy section and quickly skyrocketed to be a top-25 World of Warcraft podcast.
With a growing audience, both Mick and Jesse feel the need to extend the podcast to include more regular episodes, more special guests and, more important, begin a video series aimed at helping a brand new player into the World of Warcraft universe.
But they can’t do it with their existing equipment. The computers are old and setup is terrible. Over the life of the show, nearly 20% of the material has been lost due to malfunctioning equipment and/or dated systems of recording and posting.
Enlisting the help of podcasting veterans, Mick and Jesse now have a goal in mind: Build the podcasting studio that will provide the basis for a more robust and professional recording system that will not only facilitate more frequent episodes but provide the opportunity to embark on new podcast shows in the hopes of creating a network of shows across genres.
Your donations will go directly toward the purchase of a dedicated podcasting system including a multi-channel mixer, dedicated skype-in netbook system and a portable case for an upcoming Blizzcon series!
