Almost immediately following us wrapping up episode 32 we were treated with the fabled preview blog of patch 1.0.7. Unfortunately for us that meant a HUGE nugget of really important information would have to wait until our next recording session in late January. Given the depth and importance of the changes being previewed, letting this information languish until then sure didn’t feel like a good idea.
So then it dawned on us, why not utilize our Mumble server and open up a round table discussion about patch 1.0.7 with you, the listener?
Good idea, right? We sure think so. By holding a community round table we can get more opinions and impressions of the changes coming in 1.0.7 from a wider variety of perspectives. This also allows us to be more timely with discussing this information while not bogging down our next episode with lots of 1.0.7 talk.
Oh sure, we’re certain the discussion will continue well in to the next couple of episodes, but we can all agree that a 2+ hour MEGA show would be unwieldy for everyone. So instead we’re going to try out a separate round table format and see how it is received.
Okay, so with all that being said, how do you, the listener, participate?
As previously stated, we’re going to be holding this patch 1.0.7 round table on Mumble, so make sure you have Mumble installed on your computer and go through the audio setup wizard if you haven’t already done so. (The wizard is pretty easy to follow and shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes to complete).
You needn’t download the Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.7 PTR client, but by all means do so if you want to check out the changes for yourself. Hopefully the PTR will be stable enough for some of us to have some first-hand experience with the changes, but we also want to have an “outside-looking-in” perspective on the round table as well.
So when will we be holding this Patch 1.0.7 Round Table?
Friday, January 18th at 6 PM Pacific / 9 PM Eastern
Make sure you clear your calendars on Friday, January 18th at 6pm Pacific / 9pm Eastern. More than likely we won’t start EXACTLY at this time as some “pre-show” will definitely occur to loosen everyone up.
If this round table format works out well we’ll be sure to revisit it with substantial patches in the future.
Hope to “see” you there!
