TankSpot: Ciderhelm Episode #1
Thanks to Veneretio of TankingTips.com for giving me the idea to push this. I have no intention of putting up a transcript for the entirety of this due to the length. Here's the bullet point:

Brief personal background
Warcraft background
Goal of TankSpot
>Help players with basic needs
>Also provide discussion for knowledgeable players (Satrina)
Format for podcast will be "Ask Me Anything"
>Monday = Tanking
>Wednesday = Guild Relations, Guild Leadership
>Friday = Whatever I want
Outline of fund raising for site

Please note that I have no idea how much bandwidth this is going to suck out of us. It may come to a point where old episodes are privately archived or where I don't post 3 times a week. Enjoy!

Sounds great. Look forward to hearing some more. I've learned so much from this site, it's great to see it evolve so much.

Try closing all your browsers, then re-opening it and playing it. That's been a recent issue with me.

I too am a soldier, it just took me a while longer for the wear and tear to hit me =p Army Infantry rather than Marine Corps. The Good Lord decided it was not for you, but you did more than most, you volunteered.

Your insight here on these forums wether it be guild managment, past experience in guild leadership and other parts of this game have given me the resolve and foreknowledge into continuing to lead my own guild.

you once said something to the effect of as a MT, if you havnt blown all your cooldowns possible, the wipe is your fault. I know it is paraphrasing and in certain situations it isnt true, but what it does is really drive home how raid success rests on the shoulders of the MT. and the MT ultimatly makes or breaks the raid.

I didnt really find you guys till after BC came out and I had returned home from Afghanistan. Pre deployment i was one of the nub tanks who had no clue about how class and game mechanics worked. The insights here, at Tank Hard, and Tanking Tips has opened up a world unknown to me and thus being a Prot warrior stopped becoming a chore, and started becoming my favorite thing to do just with the knowledge of how to put it all together.

thanks again and keep it up!

P.S. I may come be a schlum in the TankSpot guild. I have never really given the alliance a shot... it jsut feels really dirty =p

Cider... you sound so strange, LOL. I'll never get over it. Great podcast!

04-04-2008, 03:50 PM
TBH the voice didnt surprise me. I've met enough people thru guilds/raids on vent that I don't tend to expect things anymore. Though, when a male character is actually a female voice, that's surprising.

Great podcast, Cider. I'm sure I'll be listening in everytime.

No questions to ask ya at the moment but i'll try to think of something. Your contributions thus far have answered many of them already =).

Not at all what I expected to hear!

04-04-2008, 07:55 PM
Excellent, looking forward to more.

BTW, this is good stuff to farm to, kek

04-04-2008, 09:05 PM
Great post Cider, I cant imagine you yelling at anyone in vent!

Excellent, looking forward to more.

Exactly what I did!

I can't believe you mentioned TankSpot t-shirts and mugs and all that fun. I was actually sitting there thinking around a month ago how nice a tankspot shirt would be. I could see it being a conversation starter.

Good podcast!

I'm excited for this, cant wait for the next episode!

There's a voice I haven't heard in a while. That is all.

Quality on this has been increased and we're hosting this off-site until our Libsyn service comes up.

02-02-2013, 09:49 AM
