    hey,
    first up, Great show once more!
    2nd: i’d like to give a The bomb at Uber entertainment for their great work about SMNC. I have received my keys about a month ago and think that they’re greatly innovating MOBA-style game with their 3rd person shooter. Even though the game still needs more refining, and a bigger playerbase, they deserve a The bomb.

    Otherwise, greetings from Québec

      I think you need to find a job in the field so some developers could harness your creativity and direct it into a quality game!
      Thanks,

      Hi!
      You would have received an email if you were one of the 10,000 to be selected or if you were placed on the beta waiting list.
      Thanks for watching!

    My questions for the Allods Team are these; Why did you find it at all plausible to make the game practically pay to play back around its American start???? ( I know it’s not like that anymore. I’m just curious.) Second question is where do you ( “You” being the Alodds Team) think this new expansion will take the game in the future??

      I think that this is in part a product of games giettng longer you could play through Mario or Zelda on the NES in about 90 minutes, so even if you died at the end, no big deal. In contrast, most games today are 10-12 hours imagine if you had to start over from the beginning on the final mission of Halo. One of the biggest challenges games face is balancing their narrative with their mechanics. Games have to figure out an effective way to make death matter without totally breaking the game from a player perspective, and I think you’re definitely right when you say there’s no clear cut answer to how to do this.

    Really enjoying your shows and wanted to give my 2cents on few things.
    Originally C9 was released before Vindictus(Mobinogi:Heroes) and Dragonnest. If anything Vindictus and Dragonnest got some ideas from C9 community.
    As formal EQ2 player who played in raiding guild, in current format, bronze subscription EQ2 is not playable. Without spell upgrades you are just a waste of slot in group.

    Lastly, if you could, could you add link/list of games you guys talk about in these videos?

  7. Sage on February 9, 2012

    Oh Thank God. Magicman you nearly gave me a heart attack. You guys normally release new episodes of f2p cast on every Wednesday and when there was no F2P Cast episode yesterday I was like WHERE IS IT! Did they close it down???
    But thank god you guys are still on lol. Great Show.

    Oh and could you guys come in into Seven Souls CBT starts 15 feb and I beleive mmoomb is giving out CBT keys. Come over make a guild and join us. We want to have some fun with you guys overthere 🙂 and thats my dabomb.

    • Magicman on February 9, 2012

      Sage,
      Not only can you count me in, but I will be recording footage for a First Look video so let’s group up and show some stuff off. You can bet we will be there! 🙂
      Sorry for the heart attack, the video took a little extra this week and we were a day late.
      Thanks so much for watching!

    Hey from Pakistan! 🙂
    Great show guys keep it up. The question to ask the Allods team is: Could you guys ask your colleagues in the Age of Wulin team when are you gonna actually start CBT????

    TYVM
