Episode 30 – XPXP Hangover

Sorry for the delay.. XPXP Weekend got the best of us, and work unexpectedly had me hopping the whole week after so we never had time to record!

This episode we discuss:

  • T-shirt status
  • Contest is almost over – get your submissions in by Jul 31, 2008!: Win a copy of the debut issue of comic book Twilight Guardian by Troy Hickman! The rules are as follows:
    • Send an Email, starting immediately to cohpodcast@gmail.com
    • We will do 2 random drawings, and Troy will mail them to the winners.
    • Make sure you include the subject: “Twilight Guardian Contest”; your full name; age (over 18); and complete mailing address.
    • If we draw you name and don’t have that info, we will go to the next name we draw.
    • Also, specify how you want it signed- either with just Troy’s signature, or with your name/character name/ or inscribed to your Aunt Fannie.
  • Podcaste Global channel
  • Podcaste SG
  • Listener meet-up – Again, we’ll be hitting the troll caves in Hollows at the next meet-up, so you need a level 12 to join us. We’ll be split up into teams again, but will be all together this time.

Episode 13 – Builds and Slotting

Love is in the air!

This is an exciting week, Heroes! Lots going on, so this episode is our longest. Buckle up and enjoy!

Then, because we don’t know when enough is enough, we allow ourselves to have a feature discussion after being inspired by questions from a listener. We discuss powers and enhancement slotting as we prefer them.

Next episode: Scheduled to be a News episode. If there is no news we will discuss the defender/healer roles as requested by a listener!

Episode 12 – A metric ton of news and patch notes

All of the patch notes detail what changes are happening on the Test Server and we really hope that some of them go live before the double XP weekend. Probably unrealistic, but there is some cool stuff going on in there! Of course, there is no guarantee that the stuff being tested will ever make it to the live game.

  • Changes to powers for various archetypes (lots for Forcefield Controllers, but some for tankers, blasters, and Kheldians)
  • Information on “XP curve adjustments” to help with those tough levels
  • The “combat attribute window” and “attribute monitor”
  • The CoH Planner
  • Changes to base storage tracking
  • Some small changes to the User Interface
  • Don’t forget – Double XP happens this weekend Starting Friday, February 8, 2008 at 8:59am PST / 11:59am EST and ending Sunday, February 10, 2008 at 8:59pm PST / 11:59pm EST
