I was going to make a post in similar fashion. I wasn’t sure the time frame of when things were announced and when you made the podcast.
Btw, I love what y’all do. But the beginning of this episode was really hard for me to listen to. The information seemed to be not all there.
As stated in the comment above. Things like no fly zone will be implemented.
In the podcast you were saying you didn’t know how jumping puzzles will work in regards to gliding. Also, it keeps being brought up about the expansion. But some of the mentioned stuff isn’t through the expansion but updates.
This winter update will happen on, Jan 26th.
Also to note, Elder Scrolls Online will be not adding the Justice system to PvP which has jaded some of the community.

Again, I love listening to y’all but it put doubt in my mind from the beginning. In the back of my mind I kept asking myself, “what else might not be quite accurate if the rest of the info wasn’t completely accurate at the beginning.”
That’s just how my brain works.

Omedon One of the reason I stopped playing Wurm Unlimited (which has player run servers) was that fact if the uncertainty of player run servers. I love the idea and I think for players that like to mod the code it’s great, but as for gameplay that follow the original games mechanic I went back to Wurm Online where the servers are all run by the game company.
If you own the server no problems, but relying on others to keep it going scares me. In the end Wurm Online was always the one for me, but I did dabble in Wurm Unlimited.
Don’t get me wrong there are some nicely populated WU server out there and the dedication hardcore players have for the game I think they are pretty safe.

Btw, it’s best not the mention sandbox on the site. People think that sandbox means “go do what you want” opposed to “how much the game world allows you to do”.

Syppi Neo_Wolf LOL. Why would you need to be stood still?  That is only one kind of roleplay and not the only kind.  Despite many jokes to the contrary roleplay in MMO’s doesn;t have to consist of just standing around in bars making up narratives and emoting.

I think an article written from the perspective of a non roleplayer experiencing it and trying to make sense of it for the first time, exploring the merits and pitfalls would make for an interesting read personally and may dispel some of the common myths.

Take a step into a much bigger universe it might just broaden your horizons ;) consider it a challenge.. how can you possibly refuse lol

Neo_Wolf I will tell you exactly what would happen. I would last for about two minutes before jumping up and down impatiently and demanding to kill something. Standing still in-game and acting out things makes me think red thoughts.

Quincha Yeah, I read her, I edit her pieces – that’s what I based what I said on! We don’t really know when or what the expansion will entail though. :D

Greaterdivinity Yeah, Blizzard is not my favorite lately, so I feel a little guilty playing D3, but that money is long spent anyway. :P

Omedon I think I pulled your letter out of the *middle* of the mailbag. It’s so deep! But I knew it would be relevant because of Smed’s new game. :D
I think I get you because I feel the same way about this style of game. I love that the freedom of these server-based games exist, but I’ve been playing them, playing mods, playing emus for so long that it’s not novel to me, and I’ve seen them go reaaalllly wrong when the wrong kind of people are in charge. I kinda like MMOs, though. Like I said… I like the idea of lots of people I don’t know flowing all around me, even if I don’t want to leap into that flow 24-7. Smaller than that and it’s a tabletop game with graphics, which is another style of game entirely.
