Hello and welcome to the 13th Episode of Final Boss! We have a slightly different show format in store for you Mobs and Minions, but it is no less entertaining than our previous! Today our Hosts get all costumed up – Much to Ana’s surprise! – and chat with Alex from Fat Boss. Loz unfortunately couldn’t make it, but Alex more than made up for it.
Alex first talks about what’s been going on in his life. He and his brother are just now finishing up what they call Guide Season; the time of the expansion where they race to push out both normal and heroic guides for all the 10 man encounters. Outside of that, he plays League. A LOT of League.
With an off-the-beaten-path turn, Alex talks about when he started playing video games, what his first console was, what his first MMO was, and how much his brothers impacted what he played growing up. Ana and Bay chime in with their first MMO experiences as well.
Getting back on track, Alex recounts the tale of how he got started in WoW (older brother strikes again!) and how he nearly stopped playing for good. (Thanks, Beth’tilac!) Fortunately for the rest of us, he picked it back up again.
Alex finally answers… “Why Fat Boss?” You won’t believe where the name came from! The show then goes into how Fat Boss started and what exactly Alex did that made him realize that he should make guides for 10 man heroics. It definitely wasn’t smooth sailing from the start and it took them a while to find their style. And of course, we had to ask about the 60-second Guides. If you have never watched them, you definitely should!
Finalizing the show, Alex talks about what he and Loz learned about the system with creating videos for Youtube and how to get into becoming a content creator.
