One recent MMO that has developer run events is Firefall. That dev team was great with community stuff and this was a part of that. The promoted and ran a whole heap of events. PLayed quite regular and would group up with people. Then there are the mod powers of spawning events, mobs and stuff just randomly or when sufficient chat had provoked it haha. There were also a few events were the devs piloted certain Chosen bosses that were attacking the capital – crazy fun

hostagecat  Props to Larry and Eliot for doing a great job holding down the fort while Bree was packing/moving/unpacking/etc. There’s no place to hide on a two person podcast. I couldn’t do it.

“MOP After Dark” is my favorite radio show.

Syppi breetoplay Bugger. I thought of a word that I didn’t actually type which makes one of those sentences look rather odd.

 “Also I don’t consider it really putting someone down because you’d rather (skim/skip) certain types of rants ya know.”

   I meant to use either skim or skip in that sentence but since I was still juggling in my head as I typed it out I somehow didn’t use either! ((flails))

Syppi breetoplay paragonlostinspace   Nah, it makes you all more human Justin. More relatable, honestly I doubt that Lethality would be offended. I just totally mind blanked when I heard the comment and couldn’t resist asking. :) Also I don’t consider it really putting someone down because you’d rather certain types of rants ya know. 

Regardless, thank you both for clearing up my brain fart as to why you might have wanted to skim some posts at times. OMG! You’re human! You and your pajama pants wearing partner in late night podcast silliness! Heh.

breetoplay paragonlostinspace  Oh yeah, doh. I’d forgotten how intensely pro Wildstar he can/could be. Not sure how I could have forgotten that. heh.

breetoplay paragonlostinspace Yeah it’s not a big thing or a grudge at all. I just got used to skimming over some rants in the past but I didn’t mean to put anyone down. Sometimes I talk without thinking and I should have cut out that part! Chalk it up to recording at 10pm.

paragonlostinspace Lethality used to have a rep for being a bit of an extreme WildStar fanatic. It got a bit crazy/trollish; he was good at whipping comment sections into a frenzy over his proclamations about WS, and he said some rude things about MOP specifically. But he pretty much put an end to that after the F2P announcement, and he’s been really constructive ever since.
I probably shouldn’t speak for Justin, but that would be my guess. I kinda wish we’d deleted that bit; I mentioned his name because he’d said something clever, after all.
Pajama pants forever! :D
