MER Episode 65: The Flashpoint

Post by Zach » 11 Jan 2012, 12:57

We may call them Flashpoints these days, but we'll always remember our first instance. With that, MER welcomes back, after a too-long absence, Mr. Scott Johnson of Frog Pants Studios - http://frogpants.com, host of The Instance: TOR Edition - http://theinstance.net/tor! Scott and the crew share some of their stories from playing SWTOR over the past several weeks, they tackle the news, and still make time for your MER-Q's. Evan also shares details on the newest podcast from the MER studios, the Ossus Academy!

I wish I had Scott Johnson's voice. If I had one wish, I would wish for more wishes. Then on my second wish, I'd wish for Scott Johnson's voice. If I wasn't allowed to wish for more wishes, I'd probably wish for a bunch of cash.

Love having Scott Johnson on, he's a great guest/host and enjoy what he brings to the conversations. I would also suggest people check out The Morning Stream, lots of fun to listen to and even greater when you catch it live with the chatroom.

So after getting a recommendation from the wife to start listing to you guys. I've caught up from the early access episode to this one and you guys are great. Scott managed to get a new subscriber to his podcast from here, so yeah, competition regarding podcast shows vs. TV/radio, no contest--everybody wins!

Lets just say, that we like you guys so much, we rolled up a couple of toons on Veela to soon join the ranks of MERC. Which is also an accomplishment as the wife typically dislikes PVP in general. I look at it as something more immersive.

Anyway, looking forward to the next show.

Thanks for the welcome. I am said wife, and even I can't believe I am on a PvP server much less that I suggested it.

Great show this week, listened to it while trying to get my character on Veela up to 10.

You'll have fun. Even my wife agrees that PvP servers are more fun.

PVP was never my thing either. Veela at first was the PVP server with a higher number of Republic players. I noticed on the pages of allot of rather large Sith guilds after launch, notices stating "ROLL VEELA", assuming this was for the short cue times. So now, it seems we are in the same situation as many of the other servers, and are set to be challenged with an Imperial boom. It seems like the Republic is getting stronger every day anyways. Sure, I understand the appeal of the dark side, so it is very attractive to allot of new players. As time goes on however, allot of people seem to be rolling on the light side... perhaps it is because it feels more heroic, or there is a greater sense of community? I know when I rolled dark, I got kinda tired of being constantly reminded that im a "bad guy" or a rebel, and felt like I wanted to give something positive back to the game. I am into roleplaying and have always been a "good guy" so im surely biased. However, allot of people re-orient their perspective over time as they start to care more deeply about these games, and so naturally there seems to be a trend in games like this where people get more satisfaction from lighting a candle, rather than blowing it out...
