To be honest for those of us who spend the week looking for any new information available I'm not getting that much more from the podcast but that still doesn't stoop me watching "and what not".

Maybe I'm wrong but besides major news I would appreciate more of a personal aproach to both your experiences.

I liked that episode. There was a lot of griping, like Gary said, but overall it was interesting seeing how others reacted to the Fatigue/Latency system. Once again, good job and I hope to see more from y'all.

I dunno, I thought that was a fairly well summed up assessment of the beta and the current issues. Some people get upset because people are criticizing an obviously incomplete work. I find myself getting irrationally upset by people absolutely refuse to accept that there could be anything wrong with the creation of the almighty SE.

Are there things that are broken? ABSOLUTELY
Are there things that are above and beyond awesom [not counting graphics] ABSOLUTELY

Is this game anywhere near done? Not even remotely.
Isn't that odd? Not really.

Just because I have issues and concerns regarding the game @ launch does NOT mean I'm not a fan, or that I'm not really REALLY anticipating the RTM launch. As a matter of fact, sometimes I feel my . . "Criticism" is born out of a deep seated desire to see this game succeed. I wouldn't get so passionate about it if I didn't feel so strongly about the game in the first place.

Ever talk to a real football fan? They are the first to be completely honest about what their team's weaknesses are and what issues need to be addressed...and sometimes it sounds like they are completely bashing their team. However, come Sunday no one is cheering louder than they are. It's because they truly love their team, and want them to succeed. It's the same thing :)

I can't. I have an IQ higher than a salad bar. The only thing worse than a sports fan is an Eagles fan. Seriously. . I hate sports fans, but Eagles fans have turned "ignorant obnoxious" into an absolute art form.

However, in your context. . it still makes me cringe that somehow "those people" and I are related in common kinship through our actions and/or our expressions somehow.

I feel dirty now ;)

I would probably be offended if it wasn't partially true. As a real football fan I tend to get into it with people that respond to my measured, concise arguments with "Whatever dude, your team sucks." ;)

I get into the same argumentative situations with people regarding computer components ;) I'm not biased, I'm just very passionate :D

If this fatigue thing is true and it makes it past the beta stages i'll be very upset. Hopefully (like was mentioned in the link) it's only until they feel they have enough endgame content to please the most "hardcore" grinders. It's not bad enough to make me quit, but it sure as **** makes me less excited.
It's the exact opposite of what I'd try to use my time for. I was planning to do quick quests and leves during the week when I can only log on for about an hour, then during the weekend go on a binge with my fighter class for a good number of hours
I'm gonna wait this out before I go nuts and ***** about it to everyone lol

What matters is not if fatigue makes it into the RTM release. The question is, will it still be there 6 months or a year after launch?

I suspect we'll see plenty of 8 hour hardcore grinding sessions within a year of launch, and TBH I feel the sooner, the better. I could level on those crabs for a month solid, they're just. . .uber

I plan on playing a lot of classes so I doubt it will affect me that much. That being said, I don't think there should be a system in place that hinders how people want to play. There's probably plenty about the system we don't understand as of yet, so I'm kind of in the 'wait and see' boat.

Kenz... where's my shoutout???
You need more tarutarus on the walls of your studio!
Looking forward to episide 6. =)

Freakin' AWESOME feedback, guys. The positive and the negative.

As far as giving more of our own personal experiences - I definitely think there will be loads more of that in weeks to come (it just so happened that this week had a lot of news/info to cover not including our own in-game experience).

Shona - We'll have to play together! Well-deserved shoutouts come from informative and stimulating gaming sessions. ;) Let me know which server you're own! I play on Jecht (for the most part).

Again, thank you guys so much. Keep the feedback coming! We're totally listening.

Cool, I'm on Jecht as well. Class 8 botanist!
Guess I'd better find you tomorrow since servers go down on Wednesday!
