MMOs.com Podcast Episode 181 - Omer (@remotayx) and Erhan (@Ehaltay)

This is episode one hundred and eighty one of the MMOs.com Podcast and we look at the most recent news and happenings in the MMO and gaming world. We didn't have a weekly raid this week but we started the episode talking a bit about Ring of Elysium and the controversy surrounding Tencent copying the look of a Chinese model. We then discussed various shitty Kickstarters. Afterwards we talked a lot about gambling mechanics in MMORPGs and how addiction can develop in gaming over in-game currency, loot boxes, or any other RNG elements. Omer talked a lot about his experience running a player casino in Final Fantasy XIV and his experience seeing addiction develop.
