Panda chatting, more Meetups, another giveaway, and we talk about AIE in a galaxy far, far, away. All that and more coming up right now. THIS is the AIE Podcast…
WoW Mist of Pandaria Beta Channel: For those of you in the MoP beta, a channel has been set up to let you chat and play with other AIE players. The channel is “AIE”, so to join it, type /join aie when you log in with your beta character. This lets you enjoy the beta with your fellow AIE-ers, without the difficulties of setting up and managing a guild on the beta servers.
If you live in or near Phoenix, Arizona, there will be an AIE meetup at Chino Bandino on Friday, July 20th at 7pm. The Arizona crew is just going to hang out and have dinner at one of Arizona’s best dives. And we have another AIE meetup coming up in Charlotte, North Carolina, This one will be at Dave & Buster’s in Concord on Saturday, August 4 at 4:30 PM. They will start with a late afternoon meal, play some games, and then possibly see a movie at the mall. See the AIE group at Meetup.com or the forums for more details on these and other meetups.
And speaking of the forums, they have been redone! In an attempt to make them more accessible and user-friendly, the AIE forums have gotten an overhaul. The largest change is the new Imperium Ludi forums, where members can talk about new games that AIE might get involved with, what steps the officers take in the decision making process, and how you can help!
Rift Lite night! This Sunday, July 15th, starting at 1pm, join AIE in Rift on the Deepwood server for a fun guild event! New players are encouraged to download the game and join in, remember the game is free until level 20! RSVP in the AIE telara forums in the thread Rift Lite Night
It’s official, AIE Salus is done leveling. The guild announced it was open on April 8th and hit level 25 on the 4th of July. We hit cap in only 87 days!! Don’t be distressed though, there’s still lots to do in Salus to help it get up to AIE’s standard! Achievements like crittergeddon are still undone and the guild still doesn’t have anyone with a legendary item and the required rep level in it! So if you want to help with the ongoing effort drop into AIELFO and ask for your transfer.
AIE member Allheals is compiling an ongoing thread about the various cooking, fishing, and pebble dailies of World of Warcraft. You can check the today’s cooking/fishing/pebble dailies thread in case you are looking for that final elusive quest.
And finally, we have a planetside 2 beta key giveaway! That’s right. Thanks to a wonderful donation from Neural on behalf of the AIE SWTOR gang in celebration of the upcoming Summer of Love event, which we’ll talk about in more detail in just a few minutes, one lucky chatroom participant is going to win a beta key to Planetside 2 right now! The winner will be the first person in the chatroom who can name any one of the three empires in Planetside 2. (The answers are Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, or Vanu Sovereignty)
Do you want to win phat lewtz from the AIE Podcast too?Just stay tuned to future shows. We still have several prizes in our prize closet to give away, including authenticators and goody bag rewards from Blizzcons past.
And with that, let’s welcome this week’s guests from AIE SWTOR, Sophillea and Max

Max>> We can mention some of the other ideas in progress… pvp, barefist boxing, pancake contest 😉
Mention the Summer of Love commercial?
Max>> Yes… I’d call out both the vids and thanks to Bouvi and team that worked on them.
* Server transfer successes, renames require reapplication, avoid special characters in your character names (Legacy names are permitted special characters)
Max>> We can mention the new pet and commendation rewards for transferring that we all get. What about the mount you get for referring people?
Max>> Yeah… we can mention the mount too. I think everyone gets 25 referral codes and there is currently a 7 day free and open trial going on. We can also mention that the new mount is ugly! Awesome! 🙂
* Continuing to host Kickferter Fulfillment events – watch the forums for details
* Did we mention the forums? Make sure to read the forums.
* Umami. If you aren’t familiar with it, or have not registered any characters in it… please do so! If you pre-seeded with the guild, you may not have your character name registered with Umami. During the pre-launch guild population, no one was able to confirm character names until after the guild was formed automatically and your very first toon created auto-joined the guild. Your application was not lost; your pre-seeded character name is not associated with your Umami account unless you retroactively registered your name with the system after launch.
* I would mention how awesome Pelell and the Dark Council are.
And that’s our show for tonight, We want to thank Sophi and Max for joining us, and our chat room for adding some great commentary! Next week we’ll be talking to the members of AIE EVE Online!
Also coming up next week, we expect to move completely to our new website, www.TheAIEPodcast.com and hopefully to the new video stream with all of us at once, if we can get that worked out.(We had a few hiccups getting that worked out this week.) Big thanks to Stigg for getting the site set up so quickly. The man is a machine.
Quick mention! Thanks to Farqalot for a great 5 star review on iTunes. We’re glad you joined AIE and are really glad you listen to the podcast.
Do you want to get a shout out too? Give us a 5 star review on iTunes! It’s just that easy!
Stay tuned, as we’ve got some great AIE member segments coming right up, including…
