    I want a private reprimand as well, for liking this post. Then I will feel really at home (as on the OF)

    Yeah that's REAL rich, coming from you... You've been one of the biggest asskissers on the OF for as long as I can remember. By constantly decrying criticism and feedback, YOU are partially responsible for the state of the game today, and jumping on the bandwagon in the product's twilight will not absolve you from that blame. And I really hope you get to read this before Doro deletes it and privately reprimands me for calling you out, you shameless hypocrite.

    The two thing that basically pissed off the entire RP community against me was when I asked one of the Weatherstock people who were trying for a Guiness world record for more information on how they'd tally the population (as I was curious how they'd do it), and found out that they basically had used the record attempt as a marketing ploy then called them out on it. The other was when I had the temerity to suggest that Laurelin get coverted from an RP server to an RE server and pointed out that it was basically already there and had the RPers come out in droves and attack for suggesting I do that. The conclusion at that time is that the RPers are just bat-shit crazy. So while you were having "fun", I was taken aback by the vitriol of that part of the community. I want absolutely nothing to do with you, you toxic piece of shit.

    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.

    I remember being taught as a child that snowflakes were beautiful and unique. They may be fragile, but do you know what happens when you gather enough of them together? They cave your roof in and shut down the roads. Pro-tip, when someone gives you the benefit of the doubt it's wise not to immediately turn into a Fox News meme.

    Why would you expect any sympathy from us? We know you and your “here have a banana” attitude too well. The only reason you are not stalking the OF is because your former master Sapience got a dishonourable discharge and the current CM dislikes the game so much that he even ignores you shills. Also, you are such a pathetic attention seeker that you need to come here for conflict now that the OF is dead thanks to you and your peers.

    The great thing is that the books still exist as they were written, and SSG can't change that.

    Maintenance mode? More like a "fuck you" mode. LI grind too much? Fuck you. Why are these last class changes not documented in patch notes? Fuck you. Where are the burglar changes we've been promised to get in previous update? Fuck you. Why didn't we even get to test any of these new changes on Bullroarer first? Fuck you. Hey when are the festivals gonna be this year? Fuck you. Hey where is the Producer's Letter that was supposed to be delivered back in December last year telling about this year's plans? Fuck you. Hey what's this new "Skirmish event" we can't find any details about it at all? Fuck you. Maintenance mode is so 2014 - 2017. Welcome to fuck you mode.

    Made of Lions seems the only one left from SoA, that's about it. Other content-designer still remaining joined ca. 2011 (thePinion). Silorien the software engineer still there since late 2008, might be the last remaining one now that they lost DrOctothorpe to layoffs (and bet they lost more than him). Among QA personnel, DarthCeltics is still there since 2008. That's about it, as far as any semblance of a "core" team. Add to that a rotating carousel of lesser interns (less familiar blue names popping up with join dates ca. 2016-18), mostly QA personnel and thus more disposable and predictably less knowledgeable about game product they're tasked with. Vastin seems the only class developer left (thankfully tbh, he's got a head on his shoulders and communicates well, unlike previous dweebs), but he's a recent addition with a forum join date 2017 (might have been around longer in other capacities?) Not counting Cordovan and the joke of a producer, who are not only terrible at communicating and formulating articulate replies to interview queries but are legitimately clueless and lost when it comes to most rudimentary familiarity with product they're paid to oversee. Both are holdovers from D&D Online so perhaps no surprise they know a piss drizzle's worth about Lotro; being around since lat 2000s seems to have done zilch to their capacity to absorb new information and develop their skill sets. Which leads me to conjecture both are still employed due to knowing people who know people, and both are digging in their heels circling their collapsing SSG wagons knowing full well they're not worth much on the job market. Any self respecting PR hiring committee would see they're nothing but yesterday's nerds with good hook-ups, good for nothing but deadbeating around the office on company pay and kissing ass of higher ups to stay employed.

    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.

    The entire thing is just so deceptive. It couldn't be simpler. SSG is charging players for an experience they could already be having at no cost on pre-existing servers (Stones of the Tortoise + like-minded players. It's been done before on nearly every server). SSG simply counted upon the gullibility and lack of common sense of its player base in order to squeeze out a little more $$$ prior to maintenance mode, and the true-to-form player base did not disappoint them. On the other hand, without $$$, LOTRO is going to shut down. So THIS is how SSG has chosen to generate that money. Not with better content. Not with upgrading the game engine to a 64k client (which we all knew was never going to happen, and so did Turbine/SSG). Not with overhauling gameplay and fixing the thousands of bugs players are currently pretending don't exist. Not with competent marketing (remember the Mordor trailer?). Not with better communication or customer service. But rather by rewarding LOTRO players' blatant stupidity by charging them a fee for what they already get for free. Which is going to make it all the sweeter when the players finally realize they've been swindled.* * but keep paying for it anyway, because they're complete idiots.

    The servers are being moved to Cord's windowless van in the parking lot. It's where he keeps his beaded curtain, patchouli, and lava lamps.

    That whole mess on the forums when they merged servers, with Laurelin raging about having to adapt to new players who didn't fit into their naming conventions. That was so damn obnoxious. It become abundantly clear to me that a lot of them didn't really care about the names, because they had names that actually violated their rules. It was simply a case of xenophobia. With that Banghole Twinkieass leading the charge. I wonder how many people left the game entirely due to being attacked by entitled douchebags.

    Even worse, just another LotRO server with even less in it than the free ones. "Let's just take everything we've already got, cut loads of it away, then slowly re-release the exact same thing and charge people for the pleasure!"

    I think they misunderstood when some players said they wanted a classic server. I guess that's what happens when you supposedly "delete" the code for that stuff in one of your annual dumpster fires.

    Saw this today, and thought it was strangely appropriate.
