EST means "Eastern Standard Time"
EDT means "Eastern Daylight Time"

To my knowledge nobody is on EST right now but my geography is not that great. There was a time when EST was actually used at this time on the calendar (Indiana).

He lives in the same state as I do. I didn't consider the EDT either, but I'm 100% positive it's 1.5hrs from now.

Got it thanks :)

Probably the best way to avoid confusion:

Asking him about his favorite hamburger I thought was a given.

These were the juiciest parts;

1) Alpha is set for September
2) 45 dungeons
3) Mercs and sleeves will be account bound
4) Cory pretty much confirmed that opening packs during the events will give us a special chest containing exclusives. Also those chests will have a stamp on them notifying their special status

5) Trolls suck, don't feed into them
6) You'll receive a special code that you type into the game to get all your KS/SB rewards.
7) Cory would love to have tournaments in store via iPads with the store taking a percentage of buy ins.

Thanks, ShadowElf. Here's my notes:

Knights of the Round: Hex Interview

Amid the early "what is HEX" ramblings, I think I heard that there will be:
Raiding rankings, PVP Rankings, guild rankings, and more

Alpha is moving to September
Beta will be mostly PVP, PVE launches later
Cory's prepared to let the schedule slip if the game demands it
does not want to copy Blizzard on the schedule slips, but does want to set a high standard for quality; "you never get a second chance at first impression"

There will be a mode for Human raid bosses (I'm having D&D flashbacks, and that's not a bad thing). The HRB will have a rating based on wins/losses and the HRB's loot table will get better as the HRB defeats more challengers.

KS reward delivery will use the same system as all other redeemed-in-game rewards: they email you a code, you login to Hex, you enter code to flag the account or gain the item.

platinum is only for packs and fees
-Later clarified on forums here (link) that plat also will work on the AH

What got cut from the standard MMO and TCG models
-3rd person, no "happen upon" other players or mobs
-Everything else should be there

Spectator/streaming API will exist

For live event booster chests, it's just when you opened the pack, not when you bought it

Achievements:
PVP: tournaments
PVE: World first, bosses, cards used, factions, (I didn't catch the whole list)

Re-confirmed account-bound mercs and sleeves

There's no implication of no AH plat trades. That was reconfirmed to be in still.

There is no consensus "standard" mmo.. Or even really TCG model, so the statement that everything except "3rd person, happening upon other players and mobs" will be in the game is a very unlikely to be true, because people will be looking at it from entirely different lenses.

Also, alpha isn't moving to september, We as a community speculated that we could get it as early as august, he has corrected us and said that's very unlikely. I don't want people to get up in arms about them pushing alpha back, when it was us just pushing it forward.

Welcome back to the forum, I missed you. =)

Other than that nice and detailed recap :)

I'm not Cory, but I can confirm that Platinum is absolutely still on the table as a currency for the Auction House. Source: I just walked into the other room and asked them.

To expand on this, I think that the quote just got pulled out of context. Cory is specifically discussing items that can be purchased from us with Platinum. The AH is obviously a slightly different beast.

Its still on the table for the AH

It's funny to me I just listened to the E3 interview a while ago looking for another piece of information and he delivers what plat can be used for in the exact same way, no mention of AH again, simply because it wasn't valid for the question. I wish people would quit throwing out craziness every time he says something and take context into account.

I agree that people shouldn't overreact; can't blame them though since plat being an ah currency is important for the balance of the game.

I logged the question and answer as it was presented in the interview. YMMV.
