    Legends of Aria

    I've been following the progress on this game for near two years. https://www.legendsofaria.com/ Just over a week ago Citadel Studios launched Legends of Aria. It has previously been in various stages of open and closed beta. There was an expected release and launch via Steam of December 4th 2018. This release date has been postponed until after the new year and its reasons are found here by its developers. This is a December 3rd entry on the LoA site. https://www.legendsofaria.com/early-access-tomorrow-steam-must-wait/ In this entry you can read and get some insight to how this company is run and their priorities. At this time a person can purchase this game and play it right now outside of Steam. I think, I will enjoy this and perhaps others will too.

    You're right, I was clearly asking too much of you. My sincere apologies.

    Censoring Words

    Great, so now you should understand why your request to follow your own subjective guidelines on suitable profanity is completely redundant.

    Censoring Words

    I never said gay people are the only ones to ever suffer injustice and violence. They are, however, a select minority of people who have and continue to suffer injustice and violence simply because they are gay. That point can't even be argued. To even equate that with "No, they get beaten up sometimes just because they were standing there" is just you being disingenuous. You've pulled this shtick before over the years when people have politely asked you to tone your shit down--and that was before you were a moderator. And you always raise the freedom of speech/censorship banner like you are on some fucking crusade. At the end of the day, you just want a space where you can be a dick with no consequences and anytime someone threatens that or, god forbid, ask for a little bit of civility, you cry foul.
  10. Doro

    Censoring Words

    No, I just don't think it is a point. You want to act like gays are the only ones to ever suffer injustice and violence, and I don't buy into it. You wanted this conversation, clearly, so we're having it. And I fully support your right to be a cock-end that thinks he's somehow more mature simply because he gets all buttflustered over a word on the internet. Boo fucking hoo, pal.
  11. Papi

    Censoring Words

    You're purposely missing the point. This is ridiculous, you've wasted your time creating a separate thread for this. I fully support your right to act like a 12 year old child and call other grown adults faggots. Carry on.

    Words have consequences Nuff said
  13. Doro

    Censoring Words

    No, they get beaten up sometimes just because they were standing there. There are people being killed all over the world for various reasons. Again, gays do not have a monopoly on it.
  14. Papi

    Censoring Words

    Yeah, but straight people don't get beaten up simply because they are straight. There aren't places in the world right now where people are getting killed simply for being straight. But you know all of that.
  15. Doro

    Censoring Words

    And the guy used an urban myth about the origin of the word faggot, and a story about how he's heard that word when he's been beaten up. Plenty of straight people have gotten into fights and had any number of words thrown at them during said altercations, I don't think gays have a self-pitying monopoly on that.
  16. Papi

    Censoring Words

    @Almagnus1What the fuck are you talking about? If it's actually come to the point that grown adults can't have a discussion or share opinions and one of them politely say "hey, I'd prefer you not use that word in a derogatory manner around me" and it not explode into some ridiculous diatribe about free speech and censorship then fuck it. Context is all good, but if the word is still being used to insult, the intent is still there. You don't get to apply your own meaning to the word and act oblivious to the history behind it's use. Well, you can if you want to come across as ignorant. I find it funny that Doro posted a clip from Louis C.K. because it reminded me of a scene I saw while watching his TV show when he asked one of his gay friends if it bothers him when he uses the word on stage:

    So are you up for censoring the word "faggot" from Lord of the Rings as well? Grow some thicker skin, you're part of the problem.
  18. people have been asking for bear skins for ages (even in the PC when they "discussed" beoorn with us. It hasn't happened yet, because they probably havent figured out how to do it. But I would bet a speed buff like the rider ones are coming to store
  19. Tome of the Beorning Polar Bear in the store in 3,2,1...
  20. I started up a beorning recently because I hadn't really given it a try before I'd left before and I liked the idea of turning into a bear in RP zones. Before the update, it was pretty powerful. I'd levelled up to 30 without doing any quests, just through farming and cooking. It left me massively undergeared, but I was quickly able to start up on yellow and orange quests and mobs despite it. Made the mistake of thinking will was an important stat because I didn't realise might gave better contributions to tact mastery (for a healing build). With the update, it's now god-like. I'm taking at least two dozen red mobs at once and not breaking a sweat. I can heal over half my health in one click every 3 seconds. I'm able to permanently stay in bear mode if I want. Wrath generation is no issue at all and it never goes down now out of combat. I don't even know what half my skills do, but I'm surviving more than my minstrel ever could on equal level. The only thing I will say is that's it's disappointing the out-of-combat bear mode only has a +40% speed buff. I'd rather a +78% like mounts. And maybe some bear form skins. Pretty boring just having it match your character's hair colour. Oh shit, they'll be flooding the store with skins of bears already in the game. I take it back.

    Censoring Words

    Look, I'm not some SJW trying to come here and limit free speech. I'm one of a small number of people who comes to this forum who finds that word offensive. No intelligent person is going to honestly argue how that word has been/is primarily used--no matter how many CK Louis videos you post. There is nothing to debate. If me asking another grown man to not use the word faggot in this space is too much to ask, then I have no problem not posting here anymore. Your call.
  22. Doro

    Censoring Words

    If we start limiting word use based on individual preferences, we might as well not be using any words at all. Besides, the guy was clearly being a faggot. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fcja4WFFzDw Edit: Feel free to start a thread if you want to debate that.
  23. Papi

    Censoring Words

    Can we not use the word faggot, if possible? I'm all for free speech, but when I see grown adults using that word I freely admit it triggers me. I'm not trying to derail the thread, but I've noticed it being used with more frequency (and not just by our moderator). I'm genuinely asking. Thanks.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    It's not like it did anything, really, especially when this place exists to make everything crystal clear. Nobody gives a fuck about those forums any more, nobody of worth anyway. The only person who would think they've "won" by getting someone banned over there is the sort of person that can't succeed in anything else in their life. It was a very clear comment on their integrity that even online, where no one knows who they are already, they still had to add an extra level by using a sock puppet to do some weak trolling. I can picture them now, a weedy beta little faggot, terrified of eye-contact on those rare occasions they have to venture out deal with the world, afraid to speak up if something goes wrong... but when they get on the LotRO forums, boy do they get a chance to be someone else. Anyone else. That's where they feel safe and strong for once in their lives. That's why they defend the game so vehemently; they're afraid all this dissent will take away the only thing they see they've got going for them.

    yeah the thread that was created for Hurin and I was nice (although I had nothing to do with it) and appreciated it. I loved how the third reply was from Captain Kiss Ass as I will now refer to them. A kin mate of mine filed reports on them tonight for "Acting as a forum moderator" on multiple threads but we all know, no action will take place. It is sad that as a Player who admits I was once a shill and white knighted, loved the game with a passion so much I did community events in my home town, even though the PC was a joke, took shitloads of abuse from other players when I was on it, and around the time of the previous silencing saw what was going on with the game. I have been very vocal when I do not like something, but on the other hand have been just as vocal when I do like something. Sadly, those are so far and few between it does come across that I hate the game sometimes. I feel like personally I was silenced much like a lot of you guys were a few years ago. It is sad to see what this once amazing game has become and what the official forums are becoming. Unless you think its all sunshine and lollipops they do not want you there. They do not want criticism. They want praise. It is frankly disgusting at every turn. I know that CKA (see above) is probably reading this thread laughing their backside off and that is the saddest thing. A person honestly had to stoop so low to create a sock puppet to silence myself and others. I know of a couple others who have left the forums over this. Oh well, it is good. LOTROS biggest fan who "Hates the end game because of the grind right now" so PAYS THEM more money to play on old content is gladly spending even more money on this weeks sales. Hope their few measly dollars keeps the game afloat.,

    Those to occurrences are rather weak if I must say so. In the pvp section, previous to this particular thread. There was a thread I created on the Black Arrow. Where the person who reported me said many things which were all false and bullshit, to me and about me. Even after others confirmed who I was, they still persisted in some crazy assumption. Who btw is on a new forum account bought from a rank farmer who hid up beyond OR for who knows how many years. Some Danish dumbass who wants to be seemingly important in the way-dead, non-existent pvp scene. The warning. What can I say really? This is some reaching from a CM I haven't seen before. Its 12am now and Cordoban is still logged on doing damage control. I say its a given, he will be even more pissy come tomorrow.

    Sometime ago Hurin and Snowlock were at each other. The result was two permabans. In that thread I gave Hurin notice he was being baited with a post saying this. "You are doing it again" Later the same day both were banned. The next day I sent Cordoban forum mail asking to reconsider the two bans and gave supposition for my request. I take no credit for the action of the CM to unban one, because others may have also sent him mail too asking the same. Hurin is a feisty one and stands strong on his position in any exchange. He did return. However, Snowlock is gone from those forums as he is known. I suspect the main reason Hurin was banned in this thread was because he clearly outplayed the sock-puppet. When the sock-puppet tried to quote and use Hurin's link to the attachment, they found it was edited and threw a fit. As stated by Hurin, he used the pic saved on his own server and when the sock-puppet tried to use it in their quote Hurin removed it from his server or denied its use. The sock-puppet cried foul and a tantrum ensued likely in the form of a forum mail to Cordoban. So what does this show? The vindictive shitstain was outplayed at their own game and went crying to the powers that be for justice. Now, if I could only get the shitstain to come out into the Moors their death would be swift and I'd be /ruding them so many times before they retreated ,they would be tasting my BA's hip thrust's out the back of their head.
