On talking about WoW....
What you guys missed, completely, is that simply people don't want to hear WoW war stories. Ever. I played a little, find it boring, and hate hearing people talk about WoW on a podcast that is supposed to be about SWTOR.
If you can't keep on the topic of SWTOR, with out making the easy comparisons or easy analogy, you're doing it wrong.
Don't mention WoW once for a single episode.
CountMercury - I don't know if you are aware of this, but the guys at MER don't get paid a dime, nor even a penny. They are gracing us with their auditory awesomeness due to their sheer dedication to SWTOR and Star Wars as a whole. If by talking about WoW, you think it is too "easy" as you stated above, I say to you, that's the point.
Why should ANY podcast about TOR have to go through the painstaking detail like this:
"Ok, so we were going to fight the boss. We dragged the hotkey that represents the heal spell over to the hotbar. The hotbar is this row of slots that allows you to put spells in them. Each slot corresponds to a button on your keyboard. When you single click and hold the left mouse button you can drag a spell or ability to that hotbar and then simply push the corresponding key on the keyboard. I chose to put my spell for healing in the number 2 slot so that I could simply tap the number 2 on my keyboard and heal the target. To target someone I could simply click on them and their avatar would appear on my screen. This allows me to see how much health they have. An avatar is a visual representation of the character or enemy I have selected. You can also hit the tab button to cycle through all available targets as an alternate method."
Compare that to this:
"The hotbar and targeting works like in World of Warcraft."
