Warp Drive Active #9
Wed, 29 Aug 2007 04:41:00 GMT [download/play]



**TOURNAMENT PREVIEW SPECIAL**

The Warp Drive Active podcast returns once again to bring you news and perky commentary on everyone's "favorite" MMO, EVE Online.

So the tournament is about to kick off again and Urban and Blinky really wanted to bring in depth and intelligent analysis on the Groups and Teams.

Unfortunately they then sabotage their own plan by inviting Verone from Veto and KIAEddZ from KIA onto the show.

Verone does go through the tournament groups giving firm but fair ratings for each of the teams, Eddz smack talks pretty much everyone Urban tries and fails to pronounce the names of most of the Alliances (even the ones which are in English) and Winterblink messes around with his anagram generator.

Find out which is the group death, which is the other group of death and which is the group of meh.

Find out who wins the award for the stupidest name in the whole tournament.

Finally find our completely fair and balanced** picks to win the entire tournament.

Beyond that, just the usual random sidetrackage, gibbering and tinfoil hattery.

Lead out tune "Drink and Fight" by Flogging Molly.

Massive thanks to Verone and Eddz for putting up with us and doing such a great job, Have a great time in Iceland guys!

**Well if Fox can call themselves fair and balanced, so can we!

'I wish I may, I wish I might, I wish to wish this wish tonight....' by Xelous
Submitted on 2007-08-30 04:33:23 CST
I wish that the BBC commentary team for the Olympics was as 'good' as this PodCast.

I mean.... Sunday afternoon Sports Extra BBC One viewing for all the family I feel.

Now, I must say, as fun as your coverage of all the teams are, you could have done your homework, and your two guests, guys come on I know you're from the North but that's not a license to be gob shites.

Far too much swearing, and what I think was worse was Urban... they pulled you into their mind set, giggling and joshing with them. Blinky kept his cool... but come on, there's no need to exercise the bleep machine so much. Swearing for swearings sake is pretty lame, and I'm sorry but this "special" cast was pretty useless, and you could have just summed up the overall coverage with four lines:

"We fink da old skool of BoB and MC are in for a right good shot at winnin'"

"Maybe da goons will really impress da ref"

"Der is a lorra joke entrerees"

"We are goin' to be da comment-f**king-terry team for da eve tv"

And then you could have all picked up your thigh bones, beat your chests, clonked your skulls together and gone to snooze uunder your black monoliths.

So, buck your ideas up lads, more is expected of this quality show.

The swear:podcast ratio is usually 0.5 for us, but you'll notice this particular podcast we had guests. It's easier for us to meep out swears after the fact than try to block the free flow of information from people, and we try to keep this as relaxed as we can while we do it.

One thing we don't do (and won't do) is sit our guests down and go over what they should and shouldn't be saying. We work it out later in post production. Most folks though tend to reel in the bad words because they know they're going on the air. Others may not care as much.

Anyway on a regular basis I'm sure things aren't going to be as sweary as this particular episode, but I don't think there's anything to be apologized for here. I see far worse in EVE's local chat on a daily basis.
