    SSG hates LotRO PvMP and its PvPers.

    No - I didn't mean that there was a specific request for Osgiliath, but there were multiple requests for some kind of new PvP zone. I know that creeps often requested that Forochel be opened to PvP, for example.
  3. There is this old site. https://surugi.com/lotrostats/index.php?server=All&week=&year=2012&rank=3 I don't know how the totals are accumulated but seeing a 2012 total for rank 3 and higher of 140k player characters who entered the Moors is a far bit more than a ton. I went back through the forums looking for Osgilaith pvp and found little support for the idea pre existing the zone. The earliest I found was dated for 2012 and that was only a "What if" scenario. There was a Producer letter listing Osgiliath zone including a pvp zone but the link didn't work located from past Dev Diary's. No threads which went beyond a page or two until it was released and those are suggestion changes or complaint thread for the shitty zone we have today. I searched the Dev Diary section and found this while milling around. https://twitter.com/sera_brennan Now my brain is damaged.

    SSG hates LotRO PvMP and its PvPers.

    Not so, unless we perceive different peaks. PvMP was phenomenal late SoA and at the 65 cap. It steadily went downhill from there.

    I'm only surprised that it didn't happen sooner. The reputation grind was the main way people earned LP to avoid paying for a subscription.

    Wait, no one asked for Osgiliath? I seem to remember a lot of requests for another PvP map. Osgiliath failed because it was so poorly designed and offered no real incentives.

    SSG hates LotRO PvMP and its PvPers.

    No matter how much you polish a turd, it's still a turd. The price of admission for pvp was too steep to really interest a ton of people, even at its peak. They should have made pvp entirely separate, meaning another faction of freeps built like creeps. The other option would have been to create pvp servers where people were allowed to beat on each other. They didn't do either of those things, hence pvp withered on the vine. It's too late now, and there aren't enough people playing their regular game, let alone pvp, to warrant spending any time or energy. It's pretty obvious from the direction they've been taking this game, if pvp had been a big cash cow, they would have supported it much more.

    Now even the LP for reputation levels has been nerfed: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?677176-SSG-Why-Were-LOTRO-Point-Reputation-Rewards-Lowered-In-the-New-Areas&p=7977969#post7977969

    Knowledge is power. SSG seem devoid of any game knowledge so literally any cogent post could be seen as a troll post and the dumbest of people in some undeserved position of authority will fight with the only tool they have. CM has no passion for the game so doesn't understand the passions of it's players. He has no sense of community because he's not one of us. He's just an ignorant bully, likely a victim in youth, getting off on the arse lickers that maintain the semblance of ego that remains after spinning SSG deceptions for years. Mac

    If people stopped just throwing their money away on the crap offered we'd get a better game but they just can't see it. The more they pay the worse it gets. Their claims of "supporting SSG" is supporting them in extracting every last dime out of these numpties. Mac
  12. Edit: Several minutes after I made this thread, the OP removed their last post, which I have copied here. I see they had enough sense to remove it and not give SSG the easy out they usual get from frustrated players committing infractions due to their overzealous attachment to this game's PvP. For eight years near to nothing in regards to PvMP and pvp balance. Actual thousands ask about its development throughout those eight years. Other than Osgiliath, which none ask for or wanted, the most thats happened was stances and stat adjustments. A few tweeks which mostly amounted to nerfs due to Freep complaints. This thread below is unprecedented in my 12 years I spent playing LotRO. A thread with 5 pages of unity requesting SSG fix PvMP. I suspect will now be locked by tomorrows end. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?677066-Official-Players-who-demands-a-serious-work-from-SSG-on-PvMP Again another thread which could have been titled differently, but still the unity in the thread speaks volumes. Hello everyone, as all of us can notice, there's never a staff response in order to PvMP ideas, suggestions or even asking a simple interest from the company in this part of the game. The purposal from this thread is not to give ideas or suggestions, the purposal of ths thread is to show Standing Stone Games and their Staff the large amount of players who demands work on LotRO PvMP. This way I want to invite everyone who wants PvMP being developed as it deserves to sign this thread, perhaps, if we are loud enough, SSG will finally listen to us, give us the replies we need, and interact with their players, it's not time to stay quiet giving ideas who are going to get ignored for years, it's time tofight for our PvMP. And I also think it's worth a minute if by this way we can make anything change, this is not a fight because we all must be together, we all must claim a decent PvMP and a responsible reaction from the company we all are or were paying for this game. LotRO PvMP is a concept who involves two factions, Free Peoples and Monster Players. We fight at the grounds but it's time to stand together and try to make those blue names notice it's not a matter of a minority. Let's make them see the number of players we are wanting, because i know the number is very high. Said that, I am the first to sign this demand. Thanks in advance. Yuzuriha from Evernight. Last page is the OP showing a warning from Cordovan. Though it doesn't list the infraction, it will now get locked. All the time wasted scratching over my threads for this... Would be better dedicated in a reply to the 106 persons, until this moment who are asking the company to read us, tell us things, anything!! What's next? Ban? That will just show with more force all mentioned things. The ball is on your roof now. PS: Thanks /re-signed .. of course Last edited by Yuzuriha_EN; Yesterday at 11:31 PM. That's too bad really. Rather depressing how SSG prods along ignoring PvMP while those who PvP beg them to fix it. In reflection at a later time, I'll probably see this thread as PvMP's last stand.

    It will be a "due to player feedback" they will remain open a while longer... Christmas bonuses not yet covered. Nothing about how the store was broken and didn't deliver so much during the sale. There is a patch imminent (no restarts today), I wonder if it's to close out any remaining advantage players might be having or start addressing beta bugs finally. Mac

    Are sales historically usually kept on the time scheduled or do they deviate due to nonsensical effects from an alternate universe? Ya guys, sorry we didn't change the launcher. Ya guys, sorry we meant Dec 12th. Which way will it go?

    Dec 3rd and the ILI fix up is still available. The Points Bonus with task bag is also still available and the splash screen "Now - Dec 2nd" still up. They did manage to shut off the bonus VXP for players on time though. Mac

    You have to laugh. Reports of the store still not delivering and it's the last day of the sale. Talk about panic buying.

    Yup for cheats and hopeless players, neither of which I want to play a game with thank you. Those who gladly spend £150 will gladly spend £250 the next "SALE", will they baulk at £350? SSG will just invent another Sale with short time availability for what ever fix they can sell for whatever they have broken in the game. The scripted ILI's progress on Stat and Legacies could have been set at any level that SSG wished. They chose to near max the stat and put zero on the legacies, then sell those peeps a fix me in the store for $50 X2 a couple of week later once the realisation had sunk in. They even threw in the bait of a near max ILI in beta for those that didn't blindly fork up on day one... Predation.

    2 at most For a new character it's something like this (I calculated it for my 2nd LT account if I had enough LP collected through the years for a cheap near-end-game alt) 1. Valar is 6.995 of 7.495 I think; 2. That new LI package is 4.995 and if I understood correctly you need 2 of those; so 10k points 3. 10 tiers on every legacy with MC, so 140 tiers = 1400 MC? 250 for 2k points, so 12k points; 4. You want to be up-to-date with crafting, 3 crafting proficiency's, 1.4k each, so 4.2k points 5. You want some XP-gains, I saw they have a 200% XP boost these days... 1.2k points if I remember correctly 35k in total, which you think I need for travel-skill-cooldown, that better crafting-thingy from the guild, some black keys for lootboxes? So the 150,- pack is really good, you buy 1 fresh lvl120 maxxed character* 120,- more for the xpac, because as RK, which is I think the best class, you want to have the new-dwarf race because of the fire-damage bonus *and yeah, you are overpowered, a kinmember used the valar on a rk, is 125 now and has replaced only 1 gear-piece till now and he has been an end-game raider for a long time, so he knows how to play the game.

    I can see two forms of currency in the future of LotRO. In game earned LP and cash paid LP. Both will be able to purchase Mithril Coins. Every new store purchase will have a designation as to which currency can be used for that purchase. In game LP becomes GLP. Cash LP become CLP or an equivalent logo icon preceding each form of LP. SSG going full on greed, they eliminate all barter currency to replace it with MC. Want kindred for that new faction? Grind for GLP or pay for CLP, then convert the LPs to MC for barter. Of course by then, the change will provide the perfect excuse to eliminate the LifeTime LP stipened. I read the forums today and see the rabid exchanges. I think some players spend more time posting than playing. Post after post for pages, like as if it is a live chat box or some texting party. No real substance just the back and forth reiterations of what they said the page before. None of which SSG gives a fuck about. SSG RedPanda is logged on saying their team is working on fixing the store. So serious and all.🙄 None of SSG is doing shit today. Digital River gets a phone call. SSG leaves message. Please fix store. Its broken. DR calls back, says okie we on it. DR Goes back to sleep until tomorrow.

    Looks like the $$G plan is working, Store can't handle the Sales Rush and isn't fulfilling orders... One ex O Streamer is complaining about their £149 point purchase not delivering. With people happy to throw cash at them it can only get worse. How many characters does 37500 LP fix? I'd have to laugh if the sale is over before the store delivers the points and they can't buy the LI Fix in time. Does it end Monday?

    The abjectly self-deluded as displayed by DF last night will remain beyond hope. ILI's less progression than these bait and switch pre-mads are coming out, no crystals though. Mostly with the relics that came with her Mordor super fan pack, SSG wouldn't give fans crappy relics would they? They did! 861 dps on the 2 hander, a loot box mace in the bag 1352 dps has her confused. Gear all lootbox or quest, can't even grasp that the gear she is equipping from the loot box is just to provide p2w Embers. Ballie's subliminal messages to her over the last couple of months has made her aware of her need to work on LIs (admits to being an ILI convert, no concern she has advocated the reverse to followers for years, leading them into the same hole/grave). But she's clueless on how she's supposed to do that. One mob on level she can kill, two is a real struggle. She tried to copy Gravity's mini "rotations" but is still clueless how he could nuke the map while she struggles with one mob. She partakes in zero of the Lotro grind. While others put months and months into the grinds she gives up after 5 minutes. With Ballie gone from the forums she stands no chance, direct help and advise meets the usual block. She has a dozen characters in this position. She is too thick to realise she is the whale, but literally too dumb to actually manage to swallow the fucking hook properly. I can understand why SSG has given up any pretence of subtlety if their marks are so incapable. Mac
