* HypeBacklash: Only the first two episodes of Season 4 will be freely available on YouTube before January 30. The rest of them will be released ''bi-weekly'' on Alpha, a subscription platform with a ''monthly'' fee (and one that you're not even guaranteed to be able to subscribe to). Suffice to say that fans are ''not'' happy.

* {{Content Warning|s}}: The show normally doesn't have one, but Wil made a point to note at the start of the ''Cards Against Humanity'' episode that it would be outrageously offensive. At the end of the segment, as he walked off-camera he started reciting the SevenDirtyWords.
** Also appears at the beginning of Fortune And Glory to warn viewers about the appearance of ThoseWackyNazis. Even though it's taken almost verbatim from the rules book, a lot of the Website/{{Youtube}} comments complained about it.

-->'''Chris Pramas''': I think every group has a player like Chris [Hardwick] who is pretty much going to throw a little monkey wrench into your plans by deciding to say, "Put [[HappyDays Fonzie]] into ''Franchise/DragonAge''".

* AlwaysSecondBest: Wil comes second-place a ''lot'', taking home the Silver Medal Of Adequacy over five times. He has yet to come in first place (except as part of a joint victory or because of a misplay that was completely independent of Wil's initiative). Unless you count Wil beating Creator/PhilLaMarr at Rock-Paper-Scissors on the Loser's Couch, after Wil lost worse at Wits & Wagers.

** To be fair, Wheaton's record just looks worse because he plays in every single episode. Most of the other players lose as well, but they only have a handful of appearances each.
This list shows the last 10 events of 344. Show all.
