    This was too positive. Probably cause youre all max. You touched on a lot of the problems, but most of them either didnt affect you, or were minor in your eyes. Thats fine, you guys talk about how you couldnt complete the end game instances, others are raging that they cant move passed solo quests that prevent further progress......Didnt touch on the leveling gaps either. Was good though. Was hoping for more rage though.

    Was a fine podcast tho.

    Cynessae the next episode I will touch on crafting, I just finally got around to doing it in 2.0. As an avid crafter in 1.0 its nice to see the recipe log, and that the whole system got a nice overhaul. Thanks for listening, you should come on sometime.

    First off, thanks for touching on my thoughts and suggestions. 

    I wanted to point out – and I don’t think it was brought up in the podcast, but it’s relevant – all these errors that people seem to think SE needs to “get rid of” are never going away. They’re built into the game for a reason. Error 3102, 90000, 1012, whatever – they will always be there. They’re there for a reason.

    The problem isn’t that the errors are there, the problem is that they’re happening to the extreme, which shouldn’t be happening. Just to highlight that point, you also get error 90000 if you pull the plug on your router/modem. It’s there to simply tell your local game client (and, by extension, you, the player) that it has been disconnected from the game servers. We will always see that, for years to come, whenever an issue comes up – which could be on the customer’s end or SE’s end or anywhere in between – we will see that error.

    Also, all MMOs have some form of the 3102 error. WoW has it, TERA has it, Rift has it, SWTOR has it, Guild Wars 2 has it. There’s a period of time that the server takes your character to log out, especially if it was an abrupt disconnect. That error will always be there. Granted, you shouldn’t have to wait more than a minute or so for the servers to completely log your character out, but the error is there for a reason.

    Now, I’ll get off that and say that this was indeed the best podcast yet. I have to admit, given the issues the servers have had throughout open beta and early access so far, I seriously expected a complete obliteration of SE in this episode, but was pleasantly surprised. ;)

    Another suggestion for the future – can we talk about crafting a bit? There was an interesting thread on the crafting forums here about the short and long-term income possibilities of the various professions. Maybe touch on that? Touch on how gear from crafting compares to equivalent level dungeon gear? (I know it was touched on a bit in the economy question in this episode, but something more extensive would be awesome.)

    Lastly, first thing I thought when I took my little level 26 archer into Coerthas was Game of Thrones. So yep!

    I enjoyed doing it, though had this been recorded yesterday I think it would have been extremely negative.
