Every week I’ll post a thread on http://www.reddit.com/r/Destiny/ with the top 5 questions you want me to answer. They can be pretty much anything you want. I’ll answer the top 5 most upvoted questions.
Doing this for two reasons – 1) so I can keep in contact with the community, and 2) to help answer some commonly asked questions here to alleviate all of the e-mails I get.
“I heard yesterday that you are waiting for payments from own3d. Could you talk a bit about this? I’m wondering if the money hold up is because own3d has the money from the advertisers and isn’t paying you, or if the advertisers are the ones holding out. Or do you know?
Additionally, is there anything us fans can to do pressure these streaming companies, Twitch.tv included, into getting the money to our players faster? Could we, say… email their sponsors? ”
Can’t really get into too many details about this. Twitch and Own3d both definitely have their problems, though. Sorry, I wish I could talk about it more.
“Feel free to disregard this question as it may be fairly personal but do you have any statement at all about ROOT releasing you? I feel like it was sad because I kinda think that’s the team that you belong to in the first place and that some minor drama that you didn’t cause in the first place (for once) was the reason behind it.”
Shit sucks. The endemic sponsors of e-sports are incredibly lazy/short-sighted when it comes to supporting teams/people. It honestly takes very few e-mails from very few people to get a sponsor to change their mind about something without the sponsor doing any research at all. To be completely honest, I could probably use my fanbase to get some sponsorships revoked from people, but it seems unnecessarily spiteful.
“Opinions on stem cell research?”
I don’t like killin’ dem embryos. I’ve heard you can procure stem cells in other ways, but I’ve also heard that those ways are inefficient and unreliable. I’d have to do a lot more reading on the topic to feel like I had an informed enough opinion that was worth sharing.
“With the beta now out, what is your plan, especially in regards to what you will be doing in Poland. Do you invest the time to get really good at a soon to be dead game, or do you invest the time in a game that is going to go through radical balance changes? Obviously some things can carry over like mechanics, but there is still a pretty big difference.”
I’ll be playing HotS exclusively, trying to get a head start on everyone else playing.
“What is your relationship with your ex-wife? How does that affect your relationship with Nathan?”
We’re friends. It doesn’t have any effect on my relationship with my son.
