This is episode one hundred and eighty one of the 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.
