    I haven't listened to the current episode yet, but THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for keeping it positive. While you point out the negatives and suggest how things could be better, you manage to keep things on a positive note when it comes to the fandom. I appreciate that so much. I have been consuming many TF related podcasts the past few years and hear many dive straight into the deep end of negativity, splashing it in my face. It's nice to listen too and smile while people talk about a fandom I love. Thanks and keep up the good work guys!!!!!

    Hiding important story content in raids is a bit of a turn off for me.
    Star Wars the Old Republic was the first MMO that I got serious about, and ended up getting into raiding for about a year or two for completion-ism, and although I did get some satisfaction, and was a competent healer, the stress ended up being too much for me.

    Having to deal with that many people in such intense situations targets all of my insecurities and shortcomings, and on top of that I ended up in a position of authority which was a huge mistake.


    Despite that I may still give FFXIV a try.

    FF14 has two models of raid. One is an eight-person raid, which i feel is honestly more stressful since individual skill levels are really apparent and in high-stakes fights it can really often be one person who causes a wipe. The other model is the 24-person raid, which is done almost entirely through matchmaking (although you can take up to 7 friends if you want) and tend to be a lot more laid back. The latter ones can actually usually be done within half an hour with minimal experience as long as you're sort of on the ball.

    SWTOR has 8 and 16-person raids. That we were a small guild and could barely get 8 people together at once probably contributed to the problem.


    I started a free trial with FF14 so I can get a taste of it, but if I play beyond that it probably wont be for awhile.

    For Vangelus and anyone else using tumblr: install Xkit. It's one guy doing all he can to add great features and fix the tumblr team's asinine design changes.

    I get crazy about scale, and the 1/144 talk drives me nuts! If magnus was 1/144 he would be GIGANTIC. 30FT becomes less than 3in at the scale, so Magnus is a 120ft long truck? Gotta be lost in translation somewhere...

    I see what I want, and I take it

    It's actually hilarious how not only do the Tumblr devs despise the dude who makes Xkit, but they're also really bad at covering up any existence of the program.

    I did play Old Republic for a long while. I switched to Star Trek Online and had a better expierence with it so far. I think I was looking more for a large space battle MMO that is not EVE Online

    Man, I must have missed previous episodes with Random Factor (unless we're talking @convention/bar episodes, who can keep track of those) but if this can happen more often...? That might be pretty neat? Maybe even perhaps an odd episode with three dudes from time to time? He added a lot to the show. Please note that I have no regard for his personal schedule.

    I wouldn't mind doing a show with Random Factor if we could work out a time that works for everyone.

    Also I have to pre-apologize to Random Factor for episode 347

    I don't want to come down on your other cast members. But for a while I've been thinking your normal crew might not quite run as smoothly as a audio show should. But this was just an ideal thought and I don't put much stoke into it.

    But RandomFactor was fun, energetic, and most importantly kept up with your jokes and train of thoughts, rather than being confused or uncreative, or cut the convestation short with a simple 'yeah'. Sooo....I don't want to be insulting to your other cast members but RandomFactor and you were just out right entertaining to listen to.

    Normally I just listen to the TF new and turn off the podcast. But I listen to the whole thing between you two and wanted more.
