Apple Music Competitor 'Pandora Premium' Launching This Week With Invite-Only Access

Pandora's own entry into the on-demand streaming music market, called Pandora Premium, is officially launching this week to a select group of invitees who sign up for a chance to gain access on the company's website. Pandora Premium is the result of the company's acquisition of "key assets" and employees from Rdio back in 2015. Late last year, Pandora finally detailed what its new Premium service would look like at a special event.

Unlike in the base Pandora app, Pandora Premium allows its subscribers full, on-demand control of what they listen to thanks to the inclusion of playlists and a personalized search feature, which surfaces unique items based on each user's own listening history instead of what's most popular at the time. The service includes learning algorithms that can auto-fill playlists after adding a few songs to match the previous tracks' genre of music.

Users will also be able to download songs to listen offline, browse content they've previously thumbed up, and view Pandora Premium's Browse section to see curated artists aimed specifically at their own music tastes. Those with Pandora Plus will get six months of Pandora Premium for free, and following the small launch of invite-only users, Pandora Premium will open up for all users in the next few weeks.
Playlists, not worklists: Start a playlist with one or two songs of your choice, tap “Add Similar Songs” and put the power of Pandora’s Music Genome Project to work to create the perfect playlist for any activity, mood or party.
All your thumbs up: Every song you’ve thumbed up on Pandora is immediately available in your “My Thumbs Up” playlist. Thumb up a few tracks on any Pandora radio station and Premium will automatically create a new playlist of these songs too.
New music for you… and only you: Browse is stocked with personalized suggestions for the latest releases from current and soon-to-be favorites whether you listen to classical, metal, jazz, hip hop, country, and everything in between.
Offline mode: Download albums, songs stations or playlists you want and bring an end to those moments of deafening silence when you lose a signal.
Search that knows you: Pandora’s team of curators, music analysts and data scientists have sifted through tens of millions of tracks to help you quickly find what you really want. No more wading through covers, karaoke versions or tribute tracks to get to your favorite tune.
A few members of the press have had the chance to use Pandora Premium and shared their thoughts online today. Wired said that the new service offers features expected of modern paid streaming services, but "there’s really no reason for a Spotify or Apple Music user to switch to Pandora Premium." In an interview with The Verge, Pandora CEO Tim Westergren said that he wants Pandora Premium to be the number one streaming service -- above Spotify and Apple Music -- within five years.
“We have very grand ambitions for what this can be,” Westergren said. “If we look around at the space right now, we just don’t think that there’s a product that’s done it right. No one has solved the ease of use and personalization part of the on-demand world. I don’t think there’s really a true premium product out there yet… we think we’re bringing something really different here.”
In an update last December, Apple Music topped 20 million subscribers after 18 months on the market. Apple's and Pandora's rival, Spotify, announced that it reached 50 million paid subscribers earlier this month.

To get on the invite list for Pandora Premium's free trial, visit the company's website here. Invites will be sent out on March 15.

Pandora fails to understand that they need a bigger song library...I always think to myself "I just heard that song like 20 minutes ago"...

This product space is maturing fast. I see why Apple is going with the Radio angle instead of just offering music downloads.


Remember the first ten minutes of Beats1, when everyone thought, "hey, this is pretty cool" only to quickly realize you had to really, REALLY like hip-hop in order to listen to it for more than eight minutes? Why have they not come up with other Beats1 stations that cater to the rest of us?

I'm not sure Pandora Premium will be worth it. For $20 more than I already pay for Pandora Plus and iTunes Match I could get a year of Apple Music. I wanted to keep Pandora because it streams with my Amazon Echos, but their library is so limited. I discovered more music using Apple Radio.


For me, nothing beats Pandora for radio. I've tried Apple music, I've tried Amazon's Stations, all of them, in my opinion fall short. The problem is, for me at least, they others are human generated
(or at least not very advanced algorithms), which is fine, but makes them too non-specific meaning if I want a station based on James Taylor's Fire and Rain, I don't suddenly want a more upbeat song popping up (I haven't tried youtube red, but based upon up next recommendations it would do a better job then Apple/Amazon although once again it's based on millions of users playlists, selections, etc.) None of the other services have solved this problem which is why I still use Pandora even though I have iTunes match, and prime music (well that and I pay the $4 a month price).

Ooohh exclusivity!!! Pleaseee let me in!

Kind of a pathetic ploy, but it will work.

Then in a couple of months or minutes as the buzz died down, it will be opened up to Tom dick and Harry.

I'm guessing you don't understand beta testing and scaling for a good customer experience on new services.

I have to agree. Apple Music and Spotify both fall well short of Pandora when it comes to radio. I do thoroughly enough SiriusXM, and that is the only reason I cancelled Pandora Plus. Google Play Music radio actually isn't that bad, but I believe that Pandora still reigns over the music streaming services.

Of course the price point will be important to Pandora Premium's success. However, I think this is going to be an EXCELLENT PRODUCT. I have evaluated Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music. They let me choose to listen to specific songs, but they're hopeless at giving me a consistent playlist. IOW, if I don't want to spend the time to curate my own playlist, they're no good. I used to pay for premium access to di.fm (Digital Imports). DI used to play excellent curated playlists of various types of techno and electronic music, but beginning in Aug-Sep 2016, the playlists began to include more lyrics. More and more of their streams began to be infected with lyrics, until in January 2017, it seemed all style streams in which I was interested had vocalists distracting me from my activities.
Apple Music will not allow the user to "seed" a list, and no service is able to do what Pandora's Music Genome Project can do. I resurrected Pandora from the dustbin a month ago, and after several weeks of consistent music which never tossed in a wrong-genre tune, I subscribed to Pandora Plus. Music Genome Project is a tremendous asset; no other service is able to keep playlists on target song after song. I'm fed up with starting out listening to quiet piano, and 30 minutes later finding myself being screamed at by some hiphop-influenced pop track; this does not happen with Pandora.
The only thing Pandora lacks (other than bench depth) is on-demand song selection. Hooray for Pandora Premium!

I'm super excited that this is almost here. I'm really glad it looks like they've retained a lot of the visual style of Rdio and am super hopeful that its spiritual successor will retain the other great parts of Rdio, like its queueing system, and smooth over some of the rough edges.


That's what I want! I lived in my queue in Rdio, and every other streaming service I've tried has failed in their queues (especially Apple Music, which seems to forget my spot in the queue every day when I open it...). Even if the queue is the only thing they bring over from Rdio, I'll be happy...

The Secret World: Ankh (Pandora’s Box) Dungeon / Boss Guide
The Secret World: Ankh (Pandora’s Box) Dungeon / Boss Guide

Posted by Unfair In Dungeons, Gaming, The Secret World

The normal version requires gear around QL8

Video’s are our first time raw kills with 3 PUG’s, so excuse any mistakes/stupidity in them =)

Throughout the dungeon and during some encounters, there are floating purple orbs. Dodge these when possible, but if someone manages to get caught by one, have everyone else in the group kill it quickly. When it attaches itself to a player, 2 things happen. The player is silenced (cannot cast any abilities). IF they orb stays on a player long enough, it will explode, killing the attached player regardless of hp. Now… Onto the boss encounters.

First Boss: Squalid Hekaturgist

HP:94,964
Strategy:
This boss has a Targeted AoE ability. He will place an effect on a player, (It was always on me, the tank when I ran the dungeon) that moves with the player. The one with the circle on them needs to move away from the group, and the group needs to move away from the targeted person. Anyone left inside will suffer damage.
The other mechanic in this fight is the mind control orbs. They will spawn periodically throughout the fight. DPS must switch to these quickly and kill them or else risk having someone be silenced. If that happens to be the healer, things will go bad quickly. They must be killed before they can attach to someone, and if they do attach to someone, then they need to die before they blow that person up.

Second Boss: Doctor Klein

HP:178, 057
Strategy:
His single target attacks are called Profane in the Membrane and Spray and Pray, just throwing that out there because I find it amusing =) They don’t do too much damage as long as your tank is properly geared. This fight is about three main spells/mechanics that the kind Doctor will fire off during the encounter. He will summon a portal that shoots motes straight across the bridge on either the right or left side. The group must move to the opposite side to avoid them. Additionally, he will summon a tidal wave/burst that will also shoot straight across the bridge on either the right of left side. He will chains these abilities together, the time in between casting them decreasing as his hp drops.
He has a third major ability. This one casts in the center of the bridge and is big enough to take up the entire area and will kill anyone it touches. You avoid it by turning around and running away. At the end of the bridge opposite the boss there is a downed pillar. You need to get behind this to survive the attack. Run back towards the boss immediately when after the particle effects clear. Someone with a teleport or long range rifle will have the best chance at interrupting the boss. He needs to be interrupted because he starts casting the orbs and tidal bursts within very close proximity so it becomes impossible to dodge them both. The other option is to have your tank go in and eat the first tidal wave before moving in close enough to shoot him with a shotgun or magical spell to interrupt him while the group sits back in safety. That’s the entire fight, rinse and repeat to defeat him at this stage. (He runs away, you’ll fight him again later)

Third Boss: Orochi Dead Ops X3

HP: 53,417 each
Strategy:If you have a geared tank and someone in your party with heals besides the healer(yay Unfair!), you can do what is done in the video below and have 1 tank tank all three while you zerg one down asap. Other methods include having your tank hold aggro on two while someone else tanks the third, but that should be done if your tank and healer’s cannot handle all three smacking him.

Fourth Boss: Dimensional Arachnid

HP:136,511
Strategy:
Throughout the fight, Orochi agents will spawn and start to buff the Dimensional Arachnid. The animation is them channeling a beam to the boss. When dps see this, they need to switch to target the adds right away. Kill the agents as quickly as possible and return to the Boss. Additionally the spider has an ability named Filth Undertow. When used, the boss drops a bunch of filth onto the ground. It goes without saying that the boss should be tanked on the outside of the combat zone as to minimize the area covered by filth. Kill adds quickly and dodge the Filth and you’ll be fine.

Fifth Boss: The Colossus, Melothat

HP:89,029
Strategy:
Here is a DPS check fight. When the encounter begins, have the tank drag the mobs close to the gate so that the group may use aoe to kill the 2 adds and the gate quickly. Once the adds and gate are killed, the tank and healer move forward while the DPS stays and begins to unleash on the Colossus. Noone should go within range of the Colossus throughout the fight. If you do, expect to die and probably wipe the group. While the DPS are fighting the Colossus, the tank and healer will be progressing to the next gate. The Tank needs to get solid aggro on the Orochi Agent and knock down the next gate while the healer keeps him alive. Once you destroy the gate, run to the end until filth starts crawling up the wall(watch the video, you’ll see what I’m talking about). Then turn around and run back to the group to help dps the boss. When he nears the last gate, he will suddenly pick up speed, so be ready for that. He also starts to spawn adds. Kill the first 1 or 2 if you wish, but afterwards focus on the boss while the tank rounds them up and holds onto them. This will become problematic very quickly if your group has low dps and it takes long to kill him.
Aditionally, if the Colossus gets to the wall before you kill him, it’s a wipe. Again, DPS check.

Final / Last Boss:The Colossus, Melothat AND Dr. Klein

HP:356,114 for Colossus, 178,057 on Dr. Klein
Strategy:
The first phase depends completely on your tank. Grab the boss and move him all the way to the right hand side. He will periodically cast sludge onto you. When he does, move to your left. After he casts it, stand as close as you possibly can to the sludge without being hit by it. You need all the room you can get for your group to have mobility on the platform. The battle arena is a giant L shape. You start out at the entrance and move right to left, then you do the same thing on the other part of the L and you rinse and repeat this to deal with the Colossus throughout the entire fight. Have 1 ranged DPS stay at max range from the boss while fighting the entire time. This is because as soon as the Colossus falls over, Dr. Klein comes into the battle and begins doing stuff. That 1 ranged DPS must then run all the way up the series of platforms on the left hand side of the room and smack him around to make him stop and let the fighting continue downstairs. After he interrupts the Dr., that DPS should make his or her way back downstairs as quickly as possible. If they stay up there, the Colossus will target them and the tank will be unable to get aggro back until the player either dies or gets back onto the L shaped platform (This occurs in the video, thankfully we recover from it). This set of events repeats for a vast majority of the fight. Once the Colossus gets to low HP, the Dr. will start coming down to your platform. When he comes down, the Colossus will stop spewing Filth at you so you gain some mobility. Keep all DPS on the Colossus until it is killed. Just take him and the group to the part of the L platform that the Dr. is not currently on to avoid his attacks completely. Once the Doctor is dead, the fight is exactly like the first fight with Dr. Klein except instead of having to run behind a fallen column to avoid his big attack, you round the corner on the L-shaped platform. After it is safe, our group had me, the tank, run in and interrupt him so that the group could get in and safely damage him. Repeat this cycle a few times and he will teleport up top. This time, your entire group needs to run upstairs in order to finish him off. If you get to this point, you’ve basically won the fight. It’s just a regular tank and spank when he is up there. Once he dies, your quest will finish and you will be rewarded with loot and EXP.

On a personal note, I am loving these dungeons. Each 5-man feels like a raid boss in other games. I cannot express how much I’m looking forward to the raids when they arrive in the coming weeks/months. Also on that note, we here at Unfair.co will need people to raid with when that time comes. Feel free to contact us in game(Voaric & Unfair)!!

  • Nekroido

    We did awesome thing on fifth boss: tank stood near a pole in the very beginning of the bridge (so he could not fly away from the swing), DPSes and healer stood somewhat away from him, so the boss was attacking just our tank and did not move. The hardest thing, lol, was to heal the tank.
