Great to see you got in, Nias! Man, this team is awesome. Nias was there watching and seemed really excited about the game and really wanted a chance to play it, but wasn't in the beta, so MaxisSparks just went all
and just gave him a key. Kudos to you, dude.
Anyway you guys did a great stream! I've seen many fall trying to set up something like this, and you guys did a fantastic job. The video quality could have been better, but frankly I'm in it to hear the behind the scenes stuff and get a chance to actually talk with the great people behind this game. The talent behind this game is great and it's often one of the big selling points I use to try to convince people this game will be great. Oh, you're excited for Diablo 3 and don't want to play a spin-off of some other series? This game is actually made by some of the same people as that game! That's enough to make people take notice, not to even mention the Magic: The Gathering and Mass Effect 2 connections.
And although I don't think any of you have actually worked on League of Legends of any other DOTA style games, and this game isn't exactly
like that, just the fact that so many lead team members are into that game shows they are on the same wavelength with what makes fun PvP as many current PC gamers. At first I was disappointed when I heard the only PvP at launch would be Arena play. It sounded like it was just the laziest thing, throw some players in a round area and let them fight, but once I actually saw some videos of the maps used and made the DOTA connection it made a lot more sense. It's almost like that sort of game, which is great!
