There’s a new officer in a galaxy far, far away; AIE has gone to Hell, virtually speaking; and we talk to the Queen of Rift! All that and more coming up right now. THIS is the A-I-E Podcast…
The evil that is Diablo 3 seems to have spread across the guild! Unfortunately your AIE officers can’t get your raid team out of Diablo and back into your raid times! Sorry guys.
We have another Guildie of the Moment: Teraall! There are almost too many quotes to use here so aren’t going to try! A few are: “I’ve known Teraall since my early days in AiE. I’ve never had a bad experience with the guy.” “Terrall is an awesome player and is always even tempered and promotes what truly AIE is all about.” “I know him and he’s a good guy.”Send your congrats to Teraall in game or on the forums!
AIE SWTOR would like to announce their newest officer to the ranks, Max’z! You may know him from his exploits as a Republic trooper, but there are rumors that he’s been seen over on the imperial side! Either way, you can congratulate him in game or on the forums in the thread: Attention~New SWTOR AIE officer on deck.
COOP! We had an amazing COOP run this last weekend. The Diablo disease definitely affected our turnout; only 30 people were able to pull themselves out of Sanctuary to join us. There were around 50 Alliance defending Stormwind, and even though it took some doing, they were eventually able to chase us out the first time we attacked. So we regrouped, blew through the other three Alliance leaders, and then tackled Stormwind again. Thanks to some excellent leadership and strategy from Alachaas and Solarflair, we were able to get the king down and got quite a few AIE members their war bears. Gratz to all that got the achievement, and everyone keep your eyes out for the next COOP run coming up soon.
Going to Dragoncon this year? How about Nerdtacular? Maybe you have an idea for a great local meetup? Well AIE has their very own Meetup.com site! Simply head over to meetup.com and do a search for the Alea Iacta Est Gaming community! Signing up is free and who knows what kind of fun you can have!
And it’s that time again! It’s time for the AIE Salus update! That’s right you guys are awesome! Our newest world of warcraft co-guild is catching up fast with just over 500 members! The hard work is showing as the guild is already level 14! That’s right, even with the distraction that is diablo, you guys are working hard!
Just a reminder, AIE TF2 thursdays are every week starting at 10:30pm EST, 7:30 PST! Just log into TF2 and look for the community invite! And speaking of TF2, Wynnefox has a number of TF2 items to give away to any player who wants them. See the Free TF2 Items thread in the community forums
And last, Salem in the chat room wanted to make sure we plugged the Pheonix Comic Con meetup happening this weekend, on Saturday may 26th. It sounds like it’s going to be a blast, so be sure to RSVP in the Meetup.com thread. Link is in the forums.
And with that, let’s welcome this week’s guest, Gypsygirl!
GAME NEWS – RIFT!
Rift recently released patch 1.8 which introduced a new 20 man dungeon (the hardest yet), two new skills (survival and fishing) as well as the new Guild Finder.
In the previous patches they introduced Chronicles (1-2 person dungeons), Instant Adventures for those 45+, and weddings! They also released an iOS app called Rift Mobile which lets you chat in guild chat, track invasions and play scratch off games to win in-game prizes like crafting materials or artifacts (shineys!).
While we have a dedicated core of raiders (the Ingrates) we’re always looking for more people to join us! We don’t care what level you are or what gear you have – as long as you’re willing to commit and die with us! 🙂
And that’s our show for tonight, We want to thank Gypsygirl for joining us, and our chat room for adding some great commentary! Next week we’ll be talking to the members of AIE SWTOR!
Quick mention! We have some great iTunes reviews! Thanks to Monkey8228 for the 5 star review! Alludra thinks you are pretty awesome too!
