  1. First off I love the podcast and listen as soon as I can get to it. I have to say this podcast was difficult to get through, I have an issue with this trend in Eve that if something (a new feature or buff) doesn’t totally benefit a persons gameplay, then it is the stupidest feature ever to be released by dumb, lazy, unintelligent and purposely antagonistic devs who must be pedophiles and Nazis (of course I exaggerate but that seems to be the theme). Although I appreciate hearing people’s opinions, the over the top criticism and the crying over you potentially and temporarily nerfing a portion of your gameplay Gets tiring and I hope I am alone in finding it tiring and for the first time not listening to the rest of the podcast. I would implore you all to push back when guests use terms like this will destroy all gameplay when it only may affect a specific portion of the individual’s gameplay.
    I would say that this is one persons frustrated opinion, I hope to be able to get to the rest of this episode in time and taking this all into account hope you can put out more episodes more often. I do love your content. Thanks

  2. What a great show! Loroseco was a fantastic guest. I was gobsmacked at how much difficulty Alek had at following the argument that a 1% reduction in resists is almost meaningless if it drops you from say 30% – 29% whereas it DOUBLES INCOMING DAMAGE if it drops you from 99%-98%. And yet Loroseco patiently tried to explain and then politely pretended it was HIS fault for not articulating it clearly.

    Before I won EVE a couple of years ago, I was considering throwing an app in to Hard Knocks. Very impressive group. Shame on CCP for peeing in the sandbox yet again. They’ll never learn.
