    Episode 19 is an excellent, beefy episode featuring the wonderful people behind the fan site Warplots. Sera and Brandon are quite the pair and it's a pleasure getting to know them throughout the episode. We hope you all like them as much as we do. Have we mentioned how excited we are about Warplots?!

    Oh, cool! The Warplots people. :D I think a lot of us know their Twitter account. :)

    I'm about halfway through the podcast right now as I type this, and something that always strikes me as a little confusing is when people talk about instances. To me, an "instance" doesn't necessarily mean a dungeon, as I often times think of various instanced areas in MMOs. Especially when you look at previous MMOs like Guild Wars (the original), where pretty much every area outside of town was its own instance. In Guild Wars 2, all the personal story areas were inside an instance. In LotRO, housing was in an instance, just as we know housing will be in WildStar. But when people talk about "instances," are they always referring to dungeons? I just wanted to clear that up for myself/understand! If that's the case, then you really can't say, "I'm in an instance right now," when you're on your housing plot or neighborhood. Is it strange that when I'm talking about grouping up and going into a new instanced location to take down bosses that I always refer to it as a dungeon?

    Also! Star Wars cantinas! :inlove: Those were some fun places to hang out back in the day in SWG. I hope that WildStar has something similar and that they're just as popular. Granted, Star Wars Galaxies had Entertainers, which made cantinas even more of a popular setting, but those cantinas definitely provided a necessary social aspect of the game that so many MMOs are lacking. It was a means of bringing people together and reminding one another that its a game to be enjoyed with one another. :)

    Getting close to an hour in, and having read the highlights, I'm really looking forward to what's going to happen during the Pants or No Pants segment... :laugh:

    just started listening.
    Nice! some pvp guests on the podcast. Btw the warplots.com looks great it has come a long time since the first iteration of the site.

    wish you good luck with the site and like you lot I can't wait for warplots :D

    Edit:

    I am ok with a limited number of NPCs (just guards or merchants etc..) , but not waves of minions like in MOBA games

    [​IMG] Hopefully you will be wearing something for protection...

    Thanks for the support :) ... I agree with you about the guards, but most of what will and wont be in game is speculation at the moment, so don't read too much into that discussion

    yeah not a lot is confirmed about warplots, but I just had to say that had to say my objection to the idea of those kind of mobs.

    In massive siege combat a large amount of NPCs just get in the way IMO.
