    I actually like the resource node system in GW2. if its not I hope there is FF to fight for it, because I did not come all the way here for this node and let you take it if you are my faction or not flagged for pvp :p

    Lethality, I'm also worried about Flying Mounts trivializing content, especially explorer path stuff.

    I thought SWTOR should have been launched in March with the Legacy system.

    I'm sure our boys over at Carbine have thought about that. The only question is what they are doing about it.

    Nice podcast guys! I'm not sure I can see WildStar becoming an e-Sport. On the one hand, I adore Starcraft 2 matches, and imagining watching Warplot matches casted by various internet personalities and being shown and major e-sport events sounds AWESOME.

    On the other hand, I dunno how much it would catch on. It's a REALLY hard medium to break into right now, with only a few titles holding strong and making a profit enough to remain viable in the industry.

    Lethality also sounds just as intelligent as his posts. ^^

    Also I gotta say I really agree a lot with you guys at the end.

    First off, I had no idea Lethality was from Ask A Jedi! BANG-A-RANG! Loved that site...

    Secondly, I think it's very telling we've seen so much gameplay and so many hands on experiences and videos. The developers are very confident with their product in this regard.

    Why did I not get to see any SWTOR gameplay until a couple months before release? Why did beta start so late where they started letting fans in?

    Why did TESO not allow cameras in to film any TESO gameplay at PAX? How come it's so hard to find someone just playing the game to see how it feels and looks?

    It says a lot about these titles, and it says even more about WildStar.

    OH! Also I know what I would change about the game now: 40-man raids. They make me squeamish.

    Deal with it, slacker.

    Also, /pushups is an emote in LotRO, so it does exist somewhere. :D

    Community is about 60/40 for some sort of specific skill restrictions on gathering, can't wait to see what WS launches with.
