  3. SSGs graphs would make an interesting reading as I cannot see any logic in their decisions. If subscription stops including new regions, many current subscribers will drop their payments as the only redeeming feature left is PvMP and we all know how good that is. Greed itself is not a winning business strategy. And seriously, just how dismal their trailers can get? They always achieve to make the game look older than its age.

  4. There was an outage back in 2013 where Turbine blamed a 3rd party for the issues. It happened over a long weekend. When it got fixed there was the usual thread thanking Turbine. I made a post thanking the 3rd party that had fixed the problem and Sapience gave me an infraction from trolling. Here is the post https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?522348-Thank-You-Turbine!&p=6898804#post6898804

  7. Accurate. One look through Red_Panda's replies in the o-forum's Dev Tracker shows what the priorities are. Note promptness and punctuality pertaining to anything store-reated. Which leads me to think the current broken "limited live servers" situation is not from SSG's ineptitude but a deliberate testing ground. When something is a priority, it gets treated like a priority. When something is not treated like a priority - then the priority is elsewhere. Who's to say they're not using this datacenter fuckup as a chance to see how the store sales figures compare in a severely limited game

  8. Her 40s level range suggests Trollshaws and Misty Mountains, the zones that were brutally raped by the so-called "region revamps." This was in the spring of 2014, still under Turbine. (Which of course makes no difference, same shit different turd shapes). Yet it brings to mind what an insidious precedent this has set, something that has sailed entirely under the radar when it happened and whose magnitude of damage to the game can only be appraised now, in light of everything that has followed since. Having repeatedly alted through (and loved) the original Trollshaws and Misties pre '14,

  11. There are one or two threads where folks are venting their disappointment. The only issue...SSG isn't doing anything they haven't done before (i.e. Mordor). All this anger over something that isn't going to change. SSG already showed you who they are--years ago. If you continue to stick around and play the game, you have no one to blame but yourself.

  12. You are not alone. The following is pathetic. VIPs are complaining that this 'mini whatever' should have been included with VIP. What does SSG do? They add a 'War of Three Peaks map table with teleporter' as a (gated behind purchase) VIP quest reward to a vendor. And what do the VIPs do? They are excited and forget they paid at least $20 for something that used to be included in their subscription. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?&postid=8042654#post8042654 What did Paiz say again?

I know damn well DBG and by proxy of DBG's umbrella, SSG too have gotten millions from the US as a result of Covid-19 through the US appropriations for small businesses. Think this through and you will see what I mean. DBG recently broke up their business into smaller development companies.

  18. This one? From what little I saw of it, it looks like they made a Rust RPG and added some Witcher 3 and Far Cry Primal vibes. A lot of reliance on crafting, resource gathering, open world player-made structures, and potentially some sort of PvP at the end (let's hope they didn't copy Rust's level of offline-raiding, toxic PvP as well). I'd certainly give it a try under different circumstances, but the fact that it's an MMO puts me off. I can't bring myself to go through the same disappointment I did with LotRO, seeing incompetent devs release an update that kills the entire game

  21. A company staffed by incompetent and unambitious bottom-feeders with extremely low cost of upkeep but devoted fans with more money than sense would make the perfect front. They're not hunting whales, they're letting automated robo-whales chuck dirty cash their way through micro-transactions, and funnelling it back out as legit funds. I can see why they'd be concerned with an interruption to this conveyor belt that's part of a larger Russian oligarch money-laundering scheme, but not giving a shit about things like lag, chat issues, or bugs.

Many of them exhibit more symptoms of Stockholm Syndrome than actual kidnapping victims, and no one could purposefully be so gullible and loyal to a company that couldn't give less fucks if they genuinely tried. It HAS to be incognito SSG employees trying to gaslight the community. Stranger things are happening. /shrug

Nope, they need to stomp the carcass to its last breath. Then used a stun gun to resuscitate life back into the dead. DBG as terrible as they are probably stands in horror telling them to show some mercy and just pull the plug. I could see DBG peoples standing around asking themselves what have we gotten themselves into with SSG. It's really a whole new level of arrogance and stupidity. A 3 week rollback? Who in the

  26. I've had some time to think about it and I actually don't mind this now. It's not an integral, necessary part of the game, and was never promised as free to VIPs, so it's fine for it to come with a cost. If people want it, they can buy it. If they don't, then there's regular housing still available. There's too much self-entitlement these days. People should be grateful they get to help keep the game they love alive, warts and all.

  27. You know that weird phenomenon where sub-beta males send cam-whores money online and buy their bath water? SSG is that cam-whore, the whales are those simps, and this housing is the bath water. They'll chuck that money down with the excuse of "I have fun" or "it's not a lot of money" or "I want to keep supporting them", but it's all weak attempts to internally rationalise being exploited.

  28. They've kept a few servers "open" (a.k.a. on life support, feeding tube) while taking others down. No chat /channels, no mail, no auction house, no friend-list functioning. Put another way, keeping the addicts who cannot function without being plugged into the game on life support/feeding tube. Interestingly, in this unstable server environment, the $tore has not been disabled. I've logged in a few days ago out of curiosity, to check out the new festival in what (I thought) would be a less-laggy environment due to new restrictions.

  29. At this point, we're basically chasing down the Gúrzyul, the former disciples of Sauron. This mainly includes Dulgabêth, the Mouth of Sauron; Karazgar the Weeping Warrior; and Urudanî Stonemaiden, previously the mistress of Nargroth and currently a fire-wraith. Karazgar is involved most of the Black Book story in the Three Kingdoms (Felegroth, Dale, and Erebor) and The Dwarf-Holds (Iron Hills and Ered Mithrin). He also appears in the Vales of the Anduin. His story is never adequately completed, before you are whisked away to help Isildur (himself now a wraith) find a final peace in the final c

After they went all cut-n-paste happy to liven up the landscapes a while back, there are now rocks, weeds, bushes, flowers, etc plopped via algorithm all over the place that hide a lot of the things you're supposed to be looking for. The roads are obscured by grass/vegetation a lot now too in many places in the world. And don't get me started on the ubiquitous use of the Mithril Coin to ease the way: travel to NPC, reset daily tasks, reset daily repeatable quests, travel routes, ILI tiers...they even

  40. Right.. Obviously you don't know, since you're railing against the "illegal inquiry of the democrats". Okay, what I read matters greatly. I'll take that argument. Media bias is a thing. That's why there's sites like https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/. They objectively judge sources on left/right leaning, science or pseudoscience. So, when you disqualify my opinion because I'm European, it matters, but when I state that what the US does impacts the EU, you disqualify it? The EU is one of the biggest trade partners of the US.

There's a reason the condom is the oldest and safest form of birth control. Your previous posts however seem to indicate that you think that if a woman doesn't want to get pregnant, she should just take the pill. As was explained to you, not everyone can. Second, no it is not better to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term and put it up for adoption. There's the socioeconomic reasons why it's a bad thing: the woman's life is on hold

Second, where the actual flying fuck is the responsibility of the man in your "argument"? He can wear a condom or get a vasectomy. But condoms can break (happened to me) vasectomies can reverse themselves. Then there's a host of socioeconomic reasons why even a couple who would want a child and get pregnant decide that it's not in their best interest or that of the child to carry a fetus to term.
