All that and more coming up right now…
Hey, AIE World of Warcraft members, are you going to BlizzCon? Were you lucky enough to get tickets yesterday? If not, you still have one more chance. The second and final round of tickets go on sale this weekend, Saturday May 10th, at 10pm Pacific. If fortune doesn’t smile on you, don’t fret, we are working on plans for this year’s AIE Town Hall. It’s still up in the air, so don’t buy any airline tickets yet, but if we do hold it again this year, it will be sooo worth going to. More news to follow in future broadcasts, so stay tuned. Also, if you’re really into the art and design that goes into the game, you’re going to want to check out senior Art director Chris Robinson’s blog post from Tuesday, where he shows off one of the new zones they are working on for Warlords of Draenor, called Spires of Arak, and explains some of the technologies and hurdles that go into creating the world of Azeroth. It’s absolutely beautiful and fascinating. You can find the post in the World of Warcraft website, and we’ll have a link in our show notes.
From AIE in a galaxy far, far away, Kazrik posted a link to a Bioware article that came out yesterday with details on the upcoming Summer of SWTOR, due to launch on June 10th, and includes a casino, bonus rewards for PVP matches, an overhaul to the GroupFinder, and a far too many other treats to cover. It sounds like the Force will definately be with you this summer.
AIE The Secret World member DottWarner will be running a PVP Achievement Farming events this weekend.. If you’re looking to gain some notches on your PVP belt, the runs will take place immediately following their normally scheduled raids, which are at Saturday at noon Pacific and Sunday at 10am Pacific, so the PVP event start times will be some point after then, and will include Stonehenge achievements if enough people show up, or Fight Club 10k player kills if not.
The AIE Nomads gang will start their roam into AIE in Star Trek Online tomorrow, Friday May 9th. Capt Hunter and the rest of the AIE in STO gang are looking forward to greeting the wandering adventurers, and somehow have talked Perfect World into increasing the number of ship slots available to characters in order to celebrate. Ok, AIE probably had nothing to do with it, but it is true. Starting today, every character will have two extra ship slots available to them.
And speaking of the AIE Nomads, the most recent minor league game vote has come to a close, and the winner, for the third time, is Marvel Heroes. So if you’re looking for a quick fun game to play with a bunch of AIE members, this is the one. However, the Nomads aren’t known for sitting still, and Lotwook has posted that the gang is also playing World of Tanks. Is that enough game for you yet?
AIE: Imperium Ludi
Actually, no, that’s not enough. AIE is now branching into Wildstar, and we’re pleased to announce that Space Admiral Kav has been named Director of the AIE Wildstar expansion. No news yet on what Kav’s plans are for the guild, but when the royal decrees come down, we’ll be sure to bring them to you.
We didn’t find any big news this week for AIE in RIFT, GW2, or LOTRO. If you guys have something going on that we missed, please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or of course, post in the forums!
