Surprise! It’s a bonus episode of the Massively OP Podcast this week — hope you don’t mind! After bringing your questions to Camelot Unchained’s Mark Jacobs in yesterday’s podcast, we had so many left over that he agreed to do a follow-up episode with more answers. Jacobs gets into topics such as the subscription model, classes, and foundational principles. Many thanks again to him for letting us grill him for over two hours for these shows!
It’s the Massively OP Podcast, an action-packed hour of news, tales, opinions, and gamer emails! And remember, if you’d like to send in your own letter to the show, use the “Tips” button in the top-right corner of the site to do so.
