F2P Cast: Hi-Rez in Hot Water! (EP 76)
In this weeks controversy filled Free-to-Play Podcast, Hi-Rez may have violated their own EULA by monitoring users without their permission. End of Nations returns, this time as a MOBA. League of Legends is declared a "Real" sport by the U.S. Government. We talk about DOTA 2 going live and what the future of the game holds. Finally, we swing back to Hi-Rez and touch on their decision to cease development on Tribes Ascend. All of this, plus the weekly bombs on this week's episode of the Free-to-Play Cast!

As for the Super Smash thing that Nintendo attempted to pull, they backed down after quite a backlash (kudos to them for doing that, but agreed that it was still a pretty dumb move to do it in the first place).
When it comes to what info game companies want from me I'm a little lenient. I don't mind a survey when I'm signing up to their game or beta, and I don't mind if it's an in-depth survey; kind of like when you sign up for the Elder Scrolls: Online. If I can help you get better statistics on your community from a survey sure I'll do it, you would like to know what games your community has previously played? OK, I'll type it out or fill a bubble, want to know my system specs? Sure! I built this myself I'm proud of it. Want to run a small scan to see how your game effects my computer? Pushing the boundary a little there, but I'm fine with it. BUT just don't shove it down your players throats AND make sure your game does nothing on my computer when its not open and being played besides sit there and wait to be played. You need to know your boundaries as a gaming company.
