    1. Hmm, not sure if you should host podcasts when you’re overworked and tired Flux, imo you’re not doing yourself a favor. For the first 45 minutes of the podcast Wolfpaq tries to give a recap of BlizzCon but gets interrupted by you with salty, negative comments every other minute. And the comments didn’t even seemed very informed.

      Sure, being sarcastic is your style and you don’t play any other Blizzard game, but in this podcast felt more annoying than entertaining.

      The second half of the podcast was more solid (outside of some weird out-of-place comments about breastfeeding :P). Dave should talk more 😛

      • Have to disagree: Flux is being Flux, and I have to say it’s one of the only reasons why I listen to this podcast and visit this site, which i’m sure is true for the majority of the people who visit this site, as was seen during Flux’s unannounced hiatus.

        But back to the Podcast: Dave is correct in that the Devs need to tackle the incentives of Botting (Paragon, GRift Keys, etc.) – they will never stop botting head-on, that’s impossible.

    2. I loved the episode. Flux is doing a great job. I love listening to it while programming :)))))

    3. I loved the episode and Flux. It is great to listen to the podcast while programming.:)))

    4. I can handle Flux being Flux.

      My problem with is one is Wolfpag. I’m sure you a very nice guy and you are knowledgeable about D3 but you got to work on speaking without stuttering/pausing – call it want you want. I couldn’t finish this one.
