    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.

    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.

    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.

    Congrats to the dozens of LOTRO players out there who have been literally alpha testing a premium class for years. Now good luck with your beta testing...

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

    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.

    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.

    Very interesting that you bring that up. Apparently the idea of VIP only servers was brought up by a forumer in the summer of 2015... I really wonder whether they've been collecting player ideas over all those years, only to bring them now, finally, but... only available with $$. It would actually be interesting to compile a list of in game features/drops/etc. that have disappeared over the years. They have just no longer bothered with upkeep of how rich it used to be. To destroy that, 'streamline' the game, who would have ever thought? I stick to my view that the game is being remade from the ground up to include monetization at every point.

    THIS is awesome! everything is clear again & Crickhollow data is back: the pie chart is equally clear now. :D THANK YOU AGRA! so Ithil is @ 10% of NA log ins & Anor @ 16%. Brandywine & Crickholow are both @18% ahead of Anor by a hair.

    On one or two accounts, probably. But not on the third account they now need because they've filled all their slots and are looking to make yet another bard to stand in Bree all day, but this one will be different because they'll be from Gondor!

    I wonder what the whales and Standing Stool Games fanbois will do if the other Middle-earth MMO turns out to be a fun, well polished and supported game. Lotro has benefited from being literally the only game in town when it comes to Middle-earth-themed MMOs. The devs can do practically anything without repercussions, whereas competition can breed excellence. It amazes me that no one until very recently had the thought of investing in a new Middle-earth MMO. All it would take is one glance at Lotro to conclude that, if people are still supporting this dumpster fire of a game, there is money to be made.

    these forum upgrades... it used to be when you posted a linked image, that was updated at the source, the image would update here as well. but it looks like in my previous posts both images aren't updating, but rather cashed here in static form... wonder if i can bypass the cache... now the above should be current as of this post... i hope. if they don't update, just click the image (in original posts) and it should pass you over to the live page, rather than a cached version here... or use these links: http://lotrostats.gefallenehelden.de/images/lotro-alle-gauge-3-year.png http://lux-hdro.de/images/live/lotro-population-anor.png is ironic back when i used to post these links a cached version would be handy as those posts were point in time specific & now i actually want it to update the way of things...

    You know what, I'm weirdly enjoying myself at the moment. Ignoring all the mithril coin buttons everywhere, the layering system keep re-loading whenever you enter Bree, the trait trees, the virtues sending you to the store if you click on the quest, and the general petty nature of the players, it's partially still the "old game" (I suppose that petty nature as always been there). I hadn't levelled any alts since they did all the revamps, so a lot of it is new to me (considering as well that I quit when Helm's Deep came out). I had no idea just how badly they'd fucked up the landscape and made pretty much everything connected. Places that used to be sheer cliffs, designed to funnel you around the map, are now gentle hills. The Barrow Downs and the Old Forest were the biggest surprises, since you can just run basically anywhere with no real issues. The new Eriador map looks shit, and strange that they didn't keep up the same style for all zones. Most of the quests now are ridiculously easy, and they replaced a lot of decent old quests with new shitty ones. I haven't seen a single rare mob yet, which might just be because so many people are playing in so few zones. And the Auction House doesn't have much going for it in the way of an "economy" still, with barely any crafted pieces being put up. But there's something nice about the enforced level cap of 50. It makes it feel achievable without a grind. I've only just reached Ost Guruth & Esteldin and I'm L30, even with the -40% xp debuff. Going up to L50 doesn't feel like an issue at all. The fact that everyone has been pushed into the same boat on that server makes it feel more encompassing than if you were to just set up a kin to do the same on a regular server. We're all playing in the scope of SoA (well, SoA that's been put through a blender), and the end-game isn't far off, a bit like a strange farewell-tour. I can't see it being the same when they eventually raise the cap enough and people start hitting that boring SoM/RoI content. Definitely not worth paying VIP for, though, so at least my lifetime account has some use for a short while.

    It was total shit and done so poorly so they could rush out the "Black Book of Bore more." "Now that that fucking ring is destroyed we can make our own epic quest line and charge money for it!" Of course you wouldn't know it's shit due to the consortium of Cordovan fellators. News flash people, he's not a rock god, he's a snarky middle aged douche with a pony tail. Anyway, rant over, sorry forum dwellers.
