On this week's Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi are learning new heroes they've never played before: Ursi's learning Arc Warden and Proud's learning Templar Assassin! We're covering our plans & attitudes going into our first time playing each hero and then reflecting on the experience in our post-game segment to see what went wrong, what went right, and whether we'll actually be playing these heroes in the future! We also establish family lore for Arc Warden, a vital part of the learning experience.
