I like these, but it sounded like this was recorded before 1.3 came out. That sort of kills the buzz and excitement of hearing about something new, because it's not new any more. Wouldn't it be better for business to release something like this a week before 1.3?
That was my thoughts exactly. Exhortations to play on the PTS are kinda moot if the podcast doesn't release till after the patch. I understand that this was probably a time constraint issue, and goodness knows I'm glad they didn't delay the patch just so they could release a podcast talking about, but something to consider going forward.
Part of me is kinda sad that they're shelving more complex concepts like Soa for the time being, but the other part of me remembers how buggy Soa can be and then I'm not as sad.
