    Twitch podcast: State of Nosgoth





    The podcast state of Nosgoth will discuss about the latest changes, newest tactics and a lot more there is. It is tried to use the latest information possible. It isnt just any normal podcast where we read the questions from a piece of paper. But the community members have lots of influence on the questions. They can send them in, in advance or during the show. However remember the show will have a twitch delay and thus not all questions will be able to be answered.






    The Kick off will be on the 28th of September. From there on out a small summary and a link to the youtube version of the live stream will be found in this section.

    Episode #1 - The kick off



    Episode #2 - ESL for the win

    Episode #3 -

    Episode #4 -

    Episode #5 -


    Welcome to the topic about the state of Nosgoth podcast. This is a podcast that will be starting as soon as all things are ready and set up.

    However to give everyone an idea I made a small mock up of what the podcast is about and how it will look like.

    <Create real general introduction>


    State of Nosgoth is a community initiative by Hirukaru to start a twitch/youtube discussion panel about the current state of Nosgoth. Think about what changed in the last updates and how does this affect the current game play, new skins what are the initial thoughts, tactics and tricks, ESL summaries etc.

    Within state of Nosgoth we won't be playing the game but discussion things happening in and around the game.

    The panel members change and are not continuously the same people, which causes some issues but also variety for the viewers and the community.

    Most of the time we will start with a pre-"show" where the hosts just talks about random stuff. This will last for aprox. 2-5 minutes. After that we set everything up and will start with the topics that were selected for that day.


    Currently the panel will be selected by hand from the sign ups, later on we will state criteria for the sign ups.


    Not yet, but I hope the stream will provide them some reason to work closely with us. As we have to organize the stream, show things in the stream etc. Especially if they release something like 5 days before the podcast goes on, it would be nice to have the pieces like 5 days before it has been released.

    Sounds cool.
    Much better than the basic premise of the Community Streams, which I still don't understand the purpose of.
    Will you do more like a panel format or a Q&A format?
    Do you want to have someone play the game in the background?

    Sounds like a great idea.

    May I suggest the spectator mode as background video material? Just to promote it exists and is a bit better than noscam. Possibly a weekly ESL finale or a normal private server where people try to show things mentioned in the on air discussion.

    I like the idea, it's what the community needs, more press basically.

    Let me know if I can help in any way

    Fixed the date 28th of september, time to be announced asap.

    Do you have topics you want to be discussed by the guests let us know. Do you have a question specific for one of the guest let me know also. (Send me a PM with your questions)

    Hope to see you during the show at twitch.tv/Hirukaru

    I am still looking for:

    • Art designer (Twitch general and Podcast)
    • News finder (You try to find the latest news together with me
    • Chat supervisor (You check the chat constantly during a broadcasts for decent to good questions)
    • Vice-host (You will take over the podcast if I am not there)
    • Topic/Summary writer

    There are criteria you have to furfill. Vice-hosts will only be someone I have good contact with for a longer period of time, so this place cannot be directly applied for (I need to get to know you a lot)
    The others are just trial and error searching and application based.
    Everything is on voluntary bases.

    Think is we don't only want news from Nosgoth officials but mostly the information

    Looks better, maybe knock a few more pixels off.
    The images mess with the size of the Forum navigation, so its all distorted., since half of the screen is wasted space to the left, where the background is. everything gets moved to the right for me, and I have to side-scroll

    may talk about ...

    - the underused skills(/talents^^) and how to get them to be balanced
    - new skills/classes to keep the player base happy
    - new game modes
    - talents to buff all the skills in the game, atm only some skills can get buffed ... and the talents should buff the skills rly high not only <20% because that would not feel different in the end. It should be a totally new experience.
    - visuals for buffed skills (got the shield now 325 hp or 650 hp or do I bleed after I enter the volley ^^)
    - disable the body location indicator on the CTB mode! ^^
    - the invisible wall at freeport (why just why ... its not like the humans are forced to stand next to the water ...)


    don´t know if that's anything near to what you guys want to talk about tbh.

    The very first banner needs to be smaller still. Its the only one that drags out the navigation now.

    I can take these into consideration as questions to our guests on the show.
    We have a time will add it tonight once I get back home.

    I used to ... but I think we're long past the point where gameplay bugs can be left lingering for months, and I don't see any reason to anticipate sudden improvements in QA. Now I'm just trying to get my friends to move to greener pastures.

    Well comments and types of bugs we can probably also discuss so if you have any all community comments are welcome in the podcast. We do live Q/A also (Even though we dont have a Square enix/Psyonix member on board (yet))

    Yep!

    Also - for clarification:
    When you say 14:30GMT, do you take Daylight Savings into account?
    So 16:30CEST?!

    It would indeed be 16:30CEST

    you can follow this link:
    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldcloc...28T1430&p1=%3A

    Which gives the exact time per country. (For me it will be 17:30)

    The first episode Finished and of course there will be community feedback. Please start posting your feedback so we can improve and hopefully get a better podcast. Once the video has been uploaded to youtube you can find it also here.

    Feedback
    - Try putting up clear topics what you are going to discuss
    - Try to make a 2 hour limit for now, 3 hours feels a bit much
    - Don't show your hands so much during the stream.
    - Make a better pokerface while reading chat.
    - get better headphones
    - Find a way to get all members in 16:9 format or all go 4:3
    - Develop an end of podcast screen
