    1. Listening now and drinking Dr. Pepper (c) by conincidence …

    2. TL:DL

      I think they should’ve started Season 2 on february 14th… 1. See how many relationships they can destroy. 2. See how many relationships are non-existent.

    3. You have a parttime job in a Whinery, Flux? ^^

    4. Can’t listen yet, due to still being on a downgraded Internet connection. But the Hype about Seasons is starting to get on my nerves. It’s not bringing back players that stopped playing due to the PR-debacle during release time and the games state at the time or the game still being trimmed down solely to primary gameplay and itemization. And that’s what the game would really need to happen. Especially with possible future successors in mind.

      • I’ve been listening to the podcast. I’d suggest that “public games” required doing a trial… period. Orek won’t even talk to you until you pop in a trial key. If you’re in a “private” group normally you’re on vent/TS/mumble and can easily ask and figure out what keys everyone has and what you’ll be running. I think this would require a private group setting? Not sure but I imagine that’s not a huge ordeal to implement.
