      Hey guys! I listened to this half on my way to work and half on the way back home and thoroughly enjoyed it!

      I liked the ideas @Hakugard had about how they can add some world pvp in WoW - for me, it's important that world pvp has meaningful objectives for which people want to go out and fight: that is pride and a worthy prize. I agree with Raffles that one of the best reasons to PvP is forums and community drama. To give you an example, here is a link to a thread someone made on the Rift forums about Cyrus leaving Whitefall: http://forums.riftgame.com/retired-.../eu-shards/pvp/whitefall/274444-so-cyrus.html - I miss this!

      I was surprised no one mentioned Rocket League for "games that give you that pvp kick".

      I find the API of Camelot Unchained exciting and I can see all the neat stuff Redh can do with that: add info on our forums, when someone posts an app, the info about his/hers char can be automatically extracted and added into their app on our forums, a cool roster with all our info, etc.

      Camelot Unchained being sold to Asian companies, hmmm...I don't think the game will look anime enough for the Asian market. The women will have too many clothes on them and no jiggly boobs.

      All in all, a very good one guys. Thank you for the efforts you put into it!

      Hopefully you could tell @Dia that we enjoyed recording it this week and were happy with our work. I think this is the best episode we've done so far and I hope that opinion is shared.

      I have to admit that I didn't think of Rocket League for PvP because I was too transfixed on the idea of MMO games in that section.

      Don't forget, everyone, to reply to the Ask the Zerg topic when it goes up!

      I haven't listened to the whole episode, just the Ask the Zerg section. Interesting as always to hear what everyone else has submitted. And yeah the guy we ganged up on in Akaron was afk, I misspelled that. The one I was thinking about was the time when we had killed the commander in one of the bigger camps and the guy teleported in right in front of us.

      If I can come with one suggestion it would be to try and find questions that are not as susceptible to long-winded answers like this one. It's difficult to describe something like this in a few sentences, it's easy that the story becomes so truncated that it loses its charm in the process. On the other hand you wouldn't be able to present more than a few if the stories were longer.

      A follow up to that would be to ask questions were you could have a discussion about the results. I don't mind the guessing part but that feels more like an internal guild thing than something for any external listener to enjoy.

      I'll try to follow you as much as I can. I'm just not a podcast person. I don't follow any podcasts, blogs or v-blogs unless occasionally if it's about a subject that I really care about at the time. And I know that's the dilemma as a whole for us at the moment. It's a waiting game until we find ourselves in a CU community on a live server.

      I listened to the whole thing in full.

      One thing that gets me is the amount of pure speculation on the CU topics, I understand that there is very little info to go on but it's a bit frustrating (as I think Peedy touched on) to hear a lot of opinions on things.

      I get that these things are difficult when your subject matter is a total non entity but rather than go on about it how about talk more about the things that have been happening in the guild?

      It gives people listening an insight as to what we're all like and should be the focus, rather an Camelot Unchained.
