Awesome to see the site active!   It looks great and it’s terrific to see all the articles already on it.   Looks like we won’t be hurting for decent MMO coverage :)  Massively is dead, long live MassivelyOP!

(Also Mo is a great mascot)

Limblessk9 I’m curious too. This is why I suggested in the other thread that they put the name of the game when you hover over a picture.

This is the first time I’m listening to your podcast. In fact, before you became MOP, I hardly ever visited Massively at all, not if someone hadn’t linked to a specific article somewhere which I wanted to read. The old site may have had like 20 clicks in total for me.

So I’m not quite sure how it happened that I now am a backer of your new, independent site. It may be the Browncoat in me. That, and that you show so much love for TSW.

Mikachu They already shot down the Tengu. Colin said that the choice was between new race or a new class and they chose a new class cause it brought more to the game that a new race would.

Thank you guys for all the work to get this site back up and running so quickly.  Looking at the new site on an iphone is soooo much better than the old one too.
Podcast is awesome always.  I expect that once the smoke clears there will be another roundtable about how the process was for everyone.
You have accomplished much in a very short time frame and you should take a minute to be as proud of yourselves as we are of you.  But after that minute is over get back to it -there is still much to be done!  -j/k while I expect that everything is taking more work now, I am sure it will be more rewarding.

So awesome my favourite podcast hasn’t gone away! Especially with all the MMO news at the moment (not all of it good).

Syppi paragonlostinspace Yeah I noted that afterwards. I’ll probably just do that from now on. :) I’d rather gnaw my own hand off then use Flash. Regardless, was a good Podcast Justin, you and Bree are fun to listen to. Between you two, MJ and Mike Foster, I’ll end up a dedicated Podcast listener yet!

Heh, good Podcast. Oh and Bree, he didn’t cut all those parts out towards the end where you forgot which classes you played. lol. Fun Podcast. :)

paragonlostinspace Syppi Well, you don’t HAVE to use the flash player — there’s a link to the MP3 file right under there if you simply want to download it.

LOL! I thought “rein” but still spelled it “reign”. Man.

paragonlostinspace

Honestly Bree, I think you give AOL to much credit, I think it wasn’t so much that they gave you all free reign, more that they just didn’t think about you all at all.  (in the middle of listening to the Podcast right now but had to comment on that) :)

I’ll give it a try, Flash makes me as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room of rocking chairs. :) So many ongoing in a “monthly” sort of way security issues with Flash. Ugh. But I want to listen to the Podcast. Curses! lol Rock and a hard place.

paragonlostinspace I think it does use flash.  If you’re using flashblock, you may have to whitelist the player.

Nice to have Massively back and unfettered from AOL. Hopefully be now being free of AOL you all will be able to earn more so that it makes it even more worthwhile to do this full time. :)

Fun little tidbit, the “mystic” in my name is a reference to a pet class: PWI’s Mystic. I’m partial to the one big pet style instead of having a portable army. Though I tend to let Magik summon big swarms in Marvel Heroes. I’m not really fond of micro-managing them though. One thing I haven’t seen a whole lot of is sacrificing the pet for buffs. I don’t mean as a build choice, but as a skill that does it so the player can have the pet out until the buff is needed. Marvel Heroes kinda comes close, but it’s still more of a build choice. I would love to have something like that for gw2’s elementalist.

I’m pretty mixed on Heart of Thorns. I should be happy for the guild stuff and new stuff in general, but the presentation didn’t really sit well. For example, specializations just sounded to all or nothing. I wanted, for my elementalist, was some more weapon choices and quality-of-life adjustments to conjures. One of those is getting mixed in with a lot of other changes that may not be desirable. Want new stuff? Specialize or you get nothing. It doesn’t sound enjoyable. I also noticed what Bree was talking about with the Mastery system. I’m kinda left feeling like I should buy it so I can do new stuff with my guild; not out of excitement. 
Maybe I’ll feel differently once the details are released. I just don’t feel great about it now.
