Despite talking for over four hours there were a few questions I didn't get chance to ask Medros during the interview. But Medros was kind enough to provide a written responce. I hope you all enjoy
PS part two of the interview will be January 29, 2013
Thoughts on BC, Wrath, Cata, and MistsI think BC was awesome because it introduced flying to the game, which I love, but I do think Blizz is right to limit it to max level in new expansions. BC also brought in daily quests, which anyone who played through the wasted quests between level cap and when they brought in gold for quest xp at cap in vanilla will be eternally thankful for. I think Wrath was a fun for a lot of reasons, from Death Knights, to taking down Arthas and the reappearance of Tyrion Fordring, who is heavily infuencing in my main's RP story. Cataclysm is an expansion that brings heavy conflict to my heart. In part the expansion brought the revitalized old world, and included flying. On the other hand it was one of the worst expansions for the playerbase, and caused a lot of people to slow or stop playing WoW all together.
Thoughts of the Story of wow?
Thoughts on Chris Metzen?
Chris Metzen is a god. LOL. Seriously though, he definitely is not a perfect man, the Draenei lore flop is one big example, but he has personally crafted some amazing stories, lore and history for this world we play in.
General thoughts on the other wow radio staff during your time there?
Current wow leadership
I think the current lead sev team for WoW is trying to manage and grow the world we play in without stepping on the toes of the many varied groups of players, and their individual styles and wishes for the game. This is an unenviable task, and I tip my hat to them for all they do.
How do you see raiding has changed
How do you see pvp has changed
How do you think Warcraft Podcasting has changed
No show exists as an island, and I really think less of podcasters who don't listen to other shows, and who either refuse to help, or ignore requests for help from other podcasters. I truly beleive in building up the community, not tearing it down. Shows in the community cannot improve without help and feedback.
If you had it to do over again would you?
What are you doing now?
