Woohoo!

Even with the 32 point purchase system, at least they got the upconvert implemented to fix characters properly and not remove 1750.

I'm excited about Reincarnation and its possibilities for future development!

Can't wait to hear the show! DL'n now.

Thanks again to the Stormreach Lighthoue for saying everything I have wanted to say to new players but could not word appropriately!

Any chance you could post your shownotes for in the DDOCast Forums So I can reference it to other new players?

Great Show Jerry! And one interesting bit about the All-Female Tempest Spine Run...

Lessah: Does it Post a Level Range?
Jerry: Yeah Level Range is 10-12 and it's an Elite Run.
Lessah: Awww! Awesome! I have a non-PD level 11 Ranger ready to go.
Jerry: Oh, Nice. Yeah, That'll be a Good time.

My First Question: How does Jerry know this will be a good time? :rolleyes::p:confused::)

I did not even think about this! As it happens, the run falls on my drill weekend. More than likely, I will not be there! I already posted in the ladies thread :( My apologies!!

Sure, I was thinking about whether to do that or not. Might as well, eh.

I don't know, how about the fact that it'll be 12 ladies playing a DDO raid? Sounds like a good time to me...

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for mentioning the class at Trinity University that is using DDO to explore transnational gaming. It wasn't in the show notes, so I wanted to mention that the link to the student page is:

http://www.trinity.edu/adelwich/transnational/

A copy of the course syllabus can be downloaded (in PDF format) from:

http://www.trinity.edu/adelwich/transnational/2009.games.syllabus.pdf

Our class meets three times a week. Two of the meetings are a traditional discussion/lecture hybrid, and there is a mandatory gaming session on Wednesday evenings.

Previous iterations of the class have involved games such as World of Warcraft (http://www.trinity.edu/adelwich/mmo/students.html) and Everquest II (http://www.trinity.edu/adelwich/worlds/students.html), but this is the first time the class has focused primarily on issues surrounding transnational player interactions in virtual worlds.

Thanks again!
Aaron

Great show Jerry! I especially liked that last e-mail. THAT guy pointed out probably the most serious bug in the game. Well spotted!

And as for the person who wanted more commercials, Lessah was either too proud or too daft to mention that all of hers are available to hear (with full descriptions, credits for voices, and dates of creation) at her website www.lessah.com!

Heh heh!

It just sounded like you knew more about it being a good time than the rest of us guys. :D (j/k'n!)

PS: Enters the rumors of guys getting into the raid & claiming they didn't have a mic...

QFT! All my guys on Argonnessen owe you their cakes because of this. Unfortunately, I cannot actually give you any cakes -- but I can still summon my djinn thanks to your Scientific Study on this amazing phenomenon!

You know, if you had an understanding sister or girlfriend, you could pretty easily fake your way into an all-ladies raid.....as long as you could keep your mouth shut.

Or plan B. Get you a slinky black dress, tons and tons of make-up and let me kick you in the junk to get you a real high pitched voice going...it "might" work. Or just let me kick you for the fun of it? o.O

It is a win-win situation.

Hey guys I joined as f2p, and my wife and I went VIP like the next day. It's a great game, and your podcast helps me understand a lot of the intricacies to it.

Your podcast seems very positive, but it would be nice if you gave voice to the overwhelming outrage from VIP players who are not getting their 500TP/month. My wife and I for example have been VIP for nearly a month and have submitted 3 support tickets, but have yet to get any response, and certainly haven't gotten our VIP points. A CSR on the forum has stated that you are supposed to get you 500TP for VIP within a day or two of cleared payment, but a lot of people on the forums are perpetuating the myth that you aren't supposed to get you 500TP until the end of your billing cycle - which is a brazen lie. After 138 podcasts, perhaps you have established enough connections to shine some light on what in the hell is going on with the VIP 500tp/month debacle. We certainly aren't getting any info from Turbine about this.
