    Default Comms no longer in Sagas

    I just watched the newest DDOCast (from October 26) http://bit.ly/17QhGzB and starting at 29:30 Producer Glin talks about using sagas, and in that conversation he talks about how they are changing (again) how you will be getting hearts.

    They aren't going to tie them to saga's anymore, confirmed at 33:24 with other information in the few minutes after.

    That's all very well and good, but why isn't Glin telling us this himself?

    Or did he just post it to his MySpace page again?

    DDOCast gets key dev info before they post to their own forums? Does DDOCast have a forum? Perhaps we can all migrate over there so we can get the latest news.

    What else is new, why bother telling your players .. let them find out from a 3rd party.

    I don't care where the information comes from I am just so stupidly happy that these things are not going to be in Sagas! From the pod cast it seems that Tokens Of Twelve are staying (maybe permanently) for Heroic Reincarnation and that the new Comms are to be used for Epic TR and Iconic TR.

    Glin doesn't actually say but what he does say is that it is something that is being worked on. Not exactly a great answer but at the very least they are not in Sagas, he has admitted that having them drop in Sagas was forcing people to run certain content and that is something that they don't want to do. I highly recommend watching the podcast there is a ton of information in this one!

    Default I like it

    Now they just need to have them drop in chests, end item lists and arc item lists and everything will be good to go. I never had a problem with them dropping as a choice from sagas, I just didn't want that to be the only source.

    This was an excellent Podcast, Patrick. (Your best yet bud!) You provided the perfect format for Glin, Jerry & Amanda (Tolero) to lay out the current state of the game in pretty great detail.

    There is no better medium to talk to the community than a podcast. Thought you were well prepared and asked informative questions of Glin and he dove right in an answered them. I thought he proved the team is listening and are still having fun developing this game.

    Very good showing from Turbine and I'm happy to see them make themselves available, and take so much time to talk to the playerbase.

    Personally, I'd rather they don't drop in chests to prevent passing, and also not make you miss out on other rewards by being in an end list. Ideally I'd like to see them auto-granted at quest completion like challenge mats.

    Although the official forums could be a good idea too, maybe they should try them sometime.

    No.

    Yes.

    Turbine has an official website and an official forum dedicated to the game. The website and the forum should be the primary medium to talk to the community not some kind of alternate trendy website.
    ( It's general, and not against DDOCast, they do a good job there, it's just that I'm tired to have to dig our stuff all over the internet when Turbine has an official forum and website to do all those announcements and hinting )

    Definitely good podcast, since this was done on saturday I'm sure someone is going to post on the forums on Monday Tuesday. Looks like they still have a few things to work out for reincarnation but it is looking hopeful.

    Alot of good candy as well for the future. Was it just me or did I hear a hint at "epic" threnal?

    Thanks for the positive feedback and for listening to the show! It was awesome to have the devs on the show and I'm hoping to do some more of this with some other devs and features on the show.

    Some people have asked about why this information about comms not being in sagas came out on the cast before here on the forums. Here's a little insight that I can share about this.

    1) sharing this information was in fact a point of discussion before we went live. It was a very recent development and firm decision. In fact if you listen to the podcast, Glin mentions that this change was checked in right before the weekend
    2) that piece of information was pretty much the only thing that's been decided at this point regarding commendations. I actually asked in jest at one point how many whiteboards and pens they had gone through in the last week.
    3) they have a desire to present something of a more wholistic plan, and much has yet to be decided.
    4) the devs get a weekend too, and they should, and I very much support it. I personally consider every weekend post by a dev a bonus because unless the live servers are burning to the ground, these folks work hard throughout the week and they should get some time to play hard too. I don't take my work home, I don't expect them to either. They didnt really have time before the weekend to do a good solid post and want to have several days to react to reactions. Glin took about 2 hours of his weekend while Tolero and cordovan took 3 hours of their time to do this interview, and I am extremely grateful that they did.
    5) this became my first real exclusive "I got the info first" thing, and I think that's pretty darn cool for ddocast. Thanks devs for how much you all support DDOCast!

    6) sharing that bit of info saved them from a dozen questions I had lined up

    yeah I generally don't listen to podcasts or watch Youtube Videos for information. I much prefer to read the information but, I guess I will have to.
