This is episode one hundred and fourteen of the MMOs.com Podcast and we look at the most recent news and happenings in the MMO and gaming world. As always we jumped right into the Weekly Raid, "Can Virtual Worlds Stay Separate From the Real One?" We talked about the recent drama in Albion Online about how a Chinese gold farming syndicate bid crazy amounts for in game plots. We talked about "fairness" and "RMT" in MMORPGs and whether virtual worlds can truly remain separate from influences / money in the real world. We also talked about the recent earnings reports from Activision Blizzard, Square Enix, and NCSoft.

    Hey Omer + MMOs.com writers, how about an article on the recent Paragon update? Or another first look vid? The game feels a lot different with the new card system and mechanics changes (everyone faster attack speed now), the patch crashed the server yesterday because there were so many players wanting to play.

    EDIT: also a lot of downtime yesterday with other AAA devs too. GW2 was down along with Blizzard Heroes of the storm, coincidence?
