    No idea if it's intentional but they wont kill the game the easily many players still defend SSG, and as it seems they enjoy giving SSG their money. I simply start to think that maybe SSG realized who are their costumers, and just deliver to their expectation. I mean if people paid 130 euro for Mordor, and even 40 euro is way too much, why should the company spend time on proper beta testing and proper QA, when the player simply look the other way. So I don't think they are trying to kill the game just trying to get as much money as they can out of it, but not in any smart way in my opinion. This game could have been gold mine but instead they probably prefer a dairy.

    I got through the first 9 pages, and then skipped to the last 2 (this post made me smile). Though I can't see where Cordovan's at fault here. He's literally just a mouthpiece for the bad news. It's the devs who fucked up here (and badly, considering how many people apparently got rid of their old armour for this new barter shit). Is there a particular post amongst that 30 page thread you're referring to? Edit: kept looking, and this is interesting. What's the betting this defender won't get banned for their post?

    Of course you can blame them. For starters, not all the title you listed are MMORPGs. Second, there are just as many games that steer clear of them.

    So these are just cosmetics? Not sure I see how this is any worse than any other micro transaction stuff.

    Wait, so SSG isn't this new group completely different from old Turbine who are going to do an amazing job with Lotro? The Lotroplayer article is very good in summarizing the problems - easier/faster than reading the forum thread. What is most telling about the Official Forum thread is that over and over players explain how unfair this is (due to them destroying their old armor), and Cordovan and SSG decide to be completely silent on this problem. I went through the Dev tracker and Cordovan is making other posts, but SSG refuses to discuss this problem with players. Looks really bad, IMO. They are not treating players as people, but instead as a commodity.

    Wow, even LotroPlayers is on the offensive... http://lotroplayers.com/2017/10/10/so-youd-like-to-play-a-game-that-punishes-you-for-supporting-it/

    This one brought out people who rarely post on the OF at all to add their "WTFs" to the uproar. You know, the ones who are happy with everything and just play the game. They're not happy now. They have a "Whatever. You know you can't get Tolkien anywhere else" approach to development now. As long as money comes in, I don't think anyone gets dinged for screwups like this nowadays. They probably all just laugh at the end of the day.

    Does anyone remember that, quite a few years ago now, Turbine tried to sell armour through the store? Enough players went vocal about it, and it didn't happen. I wonder whether that was the moment when the wheels started turning: how can we make money off armour? Et voila, no more crafting updates, armour that required essences, and then... craftable essences that required solvents. And now.... drum roll.... BiS gear from lootboxes.... Shame SSG, Shame.

    Thanks for the help all! I got into the help site yesterday and submitted a ticket. Still nothing so far, dunno how long usual response times are, but hopeful I can get this resolved soon.

    Definitely not. Haven't played in about four years, and last time I was active, I was just playing the game regularly. Never had trouble with moderators or other players, never had any issues at all. Otherwise I wouldn't be trying to figure this out and solve the problem legitimately, since of course, if I had been banned or deserved to be banned, there's no way they'd let me back in. Thanks for the tips above! Gonna keep trying - I tried accessing the site on my phone using data rather than wi-fi and it went through with no errors, so that helps narrow things down. Appreciate the tips!

    I'd contact Cordovan through social media, send him my IP, and ask him if I've been accidentally caught up in one of their gold spammer IP blocks. Do you have any other devices (a phone) on your home network from which you can try to contact the lotro website? That would rule out something specific to your computer itself. Leaving only your router, something along the route, or a block on SSG's end as likely/possible causes.
