We talk about Game Update 2.8 and its woes in the news. In our discussion, our guildmate Pez describes the community standard for measuring one’s DPS, and gives some tips on how to improve it.
Teo would like to thank both Kuze’s platforming video and Aaree for letting him get the Datacron Master title!
