    EDIT (June 17): The chat in easy to read Q&A format is now available.

    Attached is the raw chat log for the Beyond the Sword Pre-release Chat with Firaxis. The chat lasted about 1.5 hours, from 4:30 PM EDT to 6 PM EDT. It was delayed for about 25 minutes due to some connection problems Firaxians encountered.

    Check it out if you missed the chat (or want to mine the new info from it)! :)

    Later today or tomorrow we will post a cleaned up version or a log in Q&A format, which should be much more readable.

    Happy reading!

    EDIT: lord_joakim has posted a cleaned up version of the chat log. Thanks lord_joakim!

    EDIT 2: Strider has posted a cleaned up version and also a Q&A version of the Chat After Party. Thanks Strider!

    A big thanks to all the Firaxians (Barry, Jesse, Alex, and Jon) for attending the chat!!! :goodjob:
    Also thanks to all the modders/testers (Dale, Kael, Rhye, Solver, Elholm, etc) who worked on BTS and attended the chat.
    Also thanks to the chat OPs (Gogf, Methos, Strider) for moderating the chat!!!
    And thanks to everyone for coming!!! At peak time, there were 180 people in the chat room! :)

    Thanks TF, CFC and Firaxis. I acquired an mIRC dealy bob and was looking forward to this. But was waylaid by some unforeseen work. It is great to see Firaxians amongst the fanatics once again. Thanks for your time Firaxis and thanks for your efforts TF et all.

    Here guys, edited it for myself as I'd like to see more clear, easy reading. It's the first half (Until After Party), and I've removed all the small-talk, and rearranged the asked questions and answers, to show the actual facts we were told :goodjob: enjoy !!

    Thx Thunderfall :)

    Thanks, lord_joakim. I will include a link to your version in the news post. :thumbsup:

    The last half may have some new info also, although not that much.

    That took me 2 and a half hours to read the whole thing. Man I have no life!

    I make myself feel better by saying I was doing other things, but still I can't believe I actually sat down and read that whole log.

    I've cleaned up the log from the "After Party." This is basically Jon going into more detail and clearing up a few things. The latter half includes Rhye's talking about mods (and his more specifically).

    A clearly formatted Q&A copy (without all of the unanswered questions) should be done soon.

    Was there anything interesting? I read about a page and gave up. Someone should list any new info from the chat.

    EDIT : Should read FIRAXIS-CHAT thread.

    I am extremely disappointed about the answer to my Pitboss bugs question. He said he's not aware of the problems I mentioned. Have they even PLAYED Pitboss?
