13

On this week’s show, Bree and Justin cover New World’s not-so-surprising delay, World of Warcraft’s Shadowlands reveals, Legends of Aria’s launch, Elder Scrolls Online’s next DLC, Dual Universe’s beta subscription, and so-called “lazy” development in MMO sandboxes.

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.

Regarding the Torchlight 3 wipe, I have seen a few people on the forums who are surprised by this as well and some even feel cheated with this surprise wipe. I find this reaction kind of odd seeing as the devs have stated from the beginning that there would be a wipe (via the early access section of their Steam page) and while this wipe is a bit earlier, wipes shouldn’t be shocking news to anyone. I also see people asking/complaining about the lack of a single player/offline mode…. which is also addressed in the same section and it makes me wonder how many people buy early access games without reading this section.

Personally, this is why I’m holding off for the final release even though they stated that it will be priced more upon release.

Good listen, I’ve been dabbling back in lotro too the last two weeks.

It’s a challenge indeed getting around Minas Tirith , talk about the fetch quests and massive lag! Yet how could I not come back for this historic wedding, it was nice to see.

Soooo… have you stopped sending out emails with the early Patreon access for the podcast? Haven’t seen one in weeks.

Heya Scott! I’m definitely still sending the emails every Monday, with the exception of last week when there was no podcast, and I’ve double-checked and everyone in the $5 and up tier is flagged to receive it – and you’re definitely in that tier. I’m at a loss for why they’re not getting to you.

Can you see the posts from our main Patreon page? Do you see episode 279? It’s currently flagged for $5 and up tiers until Wednesday afternoon, when it goes public for everyone.

Is anyone else having this problem, or not having it, and what tier are you in?

I haven’t been receiving the emails either for a few weeks. I checked and I am flagged for early access on patreon and can see your posts.

BBB can you tell me – are they arriving in your Patreon inbox but not your email? Or are you not seeing the notification on Patreon at all?

Last message I got on patreon from you all was in January assuming I am looking in the right place on the website.

I got the email you sent on tax changes July 3rd and I have been getting recipt email for payments. As far as I can see the last podcast early access email I received was June 16th and nothing since then.

The Patreon podcast e-mails have been and are still showing up for me.

Are they arriving in your Patreon inbox or your actual email or both?

Thank you for this – I didn’t even know how it looked on your end. This is actually much better than I expected. :D

Following up here Scott – we’ve contacted Patreon again with the new info from other patrons to see if they can help. I am… not their favorite person right now since I kinda flipped a few tables over the botched tax implementation last month, but I’ll keep you guys posted on what they tell me. :D

OK, last spam from me, I promise. Patreon got back to us and basically said everything looks fine on their end and suggested you (and BBB below) contact them directly to sort out what’s gone wrong with your accounts. I’m gonna upload a pic of their email to me so you can see the whole thing – the link they included just links to their FAQ which forwards to their help site.

Edit: I’m also going to post this on Patreon so more folks see it, in case this is a much more widespread issue than I know about! Thank you guys for staying on me about this.
