This week's show features guest co-host Yak, who recently launched his own DDO-related podcast. We chat about Update 3, the latest news and answer the question, "What is a tank?" Samius offers up advice to help get you through the tough spots on "Sound Concepts." Thanks so much for listening!

Somehow I think you might confuse a few people by referencing to February 3rd as Wednesday, since its still a week from this coming Wednesday.

This http://www.ddo.com/ddosupport/download-ddo has been there since just before DDO:EU launched. I reinstalled windows and downloaded ddo from that link.

Ah! Jeez, that's what happens when you stay in your house in a cold, Minnesota winter. I'm such an idiot....February 3rd, indeed....

Thanks for the heads up, Nyvn! Like I said on the show, I don't normally go there, so wasn't sure. But it seemed new to me! At the very least I guess it's good info for people seeking the download.

I actually had a follow-up question after following your link, since I remember that post: Are you saying that the download-ddo link has been around since the launch of DDO:U? That I know. But has Turbine always featured the TDM as one of several ways to get the game on its main download page? Seems to me that until recently the focus has been on the TDM for F2P and other new players, with advice to the "back links" given in some areas as needed.

When I looked at that page last Friday, it appeared to be different in focus. Now, instead of "TDM=way to get the game", it's "TDM=one of several equally available options."

I seem to recall getting a bunch of emails and reading several threads where people were having trouble finding the "real" links to download DDO after struggling with the TDM. Why would this have been an issue if it was displayed equally on the main download page? Maybe I'm just out of the loop here.

The TDM on there is new, it originally listed the regular and high res versions.

I note in your show notes, you've resurrected Risia for the winter event.

That's because it's being called the Risia Ice Games. Risia on Lammania, yeah, that'll be a tough one not to mess up in the coming weeks...

He says next wednesday several times, not this wednesday, and says February 3rd a couple of times in the beginning of it.. I don't see how that could be confusing.
