    Ummmm wth. The first question they had recorded and had to mute it? Did you see the look on their faces? I was like lol'n they were so caught off guard. I dont think they were even working on it or even worried and gave a lame answer imo after they came back.

    Wow a dev make a remark " he is handicap and takes a little longer to write" was so unproffesional. Devs be a little more smarter then that. Bad choice to make a joke on a live stream.

    LOL @ a dev pulling a beer out of his jacket and drinking it 9:44 in the video.

    Gah he said GM power scroll and was corrected by another saying legendary. Please put the beer down. I think the 3 or 4 drinks out of that bottle has impaired your judgement.

    *facepalm* They dont even know what to keep a secret or tell. Thumbs up for preperation before a Q&A.

    *SIGH*...not wasting any more of my minutes in my life watching this.

    Can anyone please at least write a summary of what was said during the chat ?

    Particularly, what was said as in regards to the fishing quests problems ?

    I have read that they said that the reputation bug will be fixed in next publish but did they say anything else on fishing ?

    Also, any hints for the upcoming Veteran Rewards ?

    Thanks.

    The last little bit also went mute when they were talking about the xmas and vet items. They asked folks to leave the LiveStream to avoid spoilers, but they could have just as well stayed unless they could read lips.

    I thought the one guy could not make it and was replaced with a cardboard cutout since he really didn't say anything ... but then he did move ... once.

    These people do not seem to take their jobs seriously! Yes this is a game and all, but it is also their job. There really seems to be no sense of professionalism. Drinking a beer on the job! Clearly this game is not taken seriously by EA, given these people have been left in charge.

    I don't really see why drinking a beer somehow makes it unprofessional, when you have a job that requires a lot of deep thought it helps to be able to relax.

    Aside from that, the video link isn't working for me :/ I get a garbled page with a few logo's on it.

    Clearly you don't remember UO is the old days, it was on AUTO PILOT. Never any updates. Now we actually have people who care and are working on the game. I guess they should have wore tuxedo's during the interview.............
    Keep up the awesome work :thumbup:

    Regardless of whether they were actually on the clock or not, drinking a beer during it sends a negative message. I wasn't aware talking about upcoming changes takes deep thought. I don't understand why everyone feels the need to make excuses for these people. This is their JOB, and from what I've seen they're doing it very poorly.

    It appeared to me that they were on the Mythic premises, I can't think of many employers would want to accept the liability of allowing their employees to drink at the work site. If they are truly going to have these types of sessions, perhaps they could be just slightly more serious. There is a difference between having fun and acting like the keystone cops of development.

    I know Cal is the Producer, but didn't it seem like Messana, overall, was in charge of the team? I'd believe something from her in a heartbeat. They each seemed to have their own little specialities. The young guy w/ the beer seemed pretty sharp at game mechaincs

    They should bring a keg to the next one and set it down right in the middle of all of them and chug several cups of beer while answering questions.

    Correct.

    There was a lot of 'nothing' during the Sunsword years, aside from AoS.

    Ehn, I'm not sure that you can lump in the custom housing options as a 'catastrophe'... the rest, yeah. But the housing options were awesome, especially since most EA created player housing is very uninspired.
