    64-bit gossip

    During Pax East, DruidsFire interviewed Severlin, and he said that the 64-bit client is being tested on Palantir right now, and they are planning on releasing it to Bullroarer in a few weeks. http://www.mmo-central.com/2019/04/05/pax-east-2019-interview-with-standing-stone-games-rob-severlin-ciccolini/

    Reclaim Moria Bundle

    It includes an account-wide Goat of the Moria Sentinel steed and a single account-bound package for one character, with all individual contents account-bound, containing: Sentinel-in-training Pet Goat Gandalf /Emote Moria Welcome Mat for your house Hollin Gate wall engraving for your house Hollin Gate permanent fireworks launcher 50x Yellow Dwarf-candle consumable item 50x Red Dwarf-candle consumable item 50x Green Dwarf-candle consumable item 50x Blue Dwarf-candle consumable item 50x Orange Dwarf-candle consumable item 50x White Dwarf-candle consumable item 50x Purple Dwarf-candle consumable item This item is available to players on both the Legendary and non-Legendary worlds. All yours for only 3,495 LPs. The pet goat, emote, and candles are all available as separate purchases, as well. The goat is 595 LP, the emote is 250 LP, and each type of candle is 100 LP/25 candles. Normally, account-wide steeds are 2,495 LP. I'd expect the Wall Engraving to be around the average price of 495, the welcome mat to be 295, and the launcher to be around 195. So, just considering the standard prices, it's fair price for what all you're getting, even without the candles.. If you have the points, this might be worth burning them.

    If the servers aren't up by the latest deadline, they won't be up until at least sometime Monday. The data center folks will only work half a day tomorrow (Saturday) and not at all on Sunday.

    I think the data center is in New Jersey.

    It's Turbine/SSG. They always oversell and under perform.

    27 hours now... From the LOTRO twitter: We apologize, but an issue encountered this evening will require us to take a bit more time to reopen the worlds. Our downtime is now extended until 5:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT). If anything changes we'll let you know. #LOTRO

    It seems like it takes about 4 hours to reboot the servers (per the weekly reboots), so that gives the data center people 18 hours to do the physical move. I'm sure the estimate was exaggerated.

    From Cord The LOTRO Game Servers and http://myaccount.standingstonegames.com will be offline for maintenance on Wednesday, March 6th from 2:00 AM to 12:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT). Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon! Note: We apologize for the lengthy downtime, but this downtime is due to some significant data center work being done. We hope to reopen the worlds early, but that will depend on how things go throughout the day on Wednesday. In another thread, it was stated that Cord announced it during his stream today (Friday, 3/1). The servers are being physically moved within the data center.

    Be Virtuous!

    Since the EP Letter thread has been hijacked... This just in from Severlin: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?671463-Tinkering-With-Trait-Deeds-Removing-A-Way-To-Earn-LoTRO-Points&p=7918861#post7918861 I am going to answer some questions, but we all need to agree that the design might change - maybe drastically. Currently here is the plan. Again, THIS DESIGN MIGHT CHANGE - MAYBE DRASTICALLY. The Virtue points that players can already earn in game will have a flat cost, say (as an example) 100 Virtue XP. Deeds that formally gave out a specific point will now give out (in this example) 100 Virtue points so the rate of gaining points in the same. In the new Virtue UI there will be an additional slot that you drag a Virtue to that will be used to determine which Virtue gets the XP. If the Virtue is at maximum value, or if there is no virtue slotted, then we have discussed several options -> the XP goes to the highest Virtue that is not at max - the XP goes to the lowest Virtue that is not at max - or even that the XP goes to your slotted Virtues in order from left to right and then rolls over in alphabetical order. These haven't been finalized yet, and cost to implement might play a role. Anyway, you complete a deed and the 100 XP goes into the slotted Virtue which coincidentally adds exactly one rank. It means if you are running a high level character we can add quests at end game or even a Festival quest that gives some Virtue XP so you are not forced to go back to older content to progress the system. Maybe a substantial quest or deed gives the full 100, while a lighter Festival quest gives 20. It gives us a lot of freedom for expanding the system. Points given out in the future may cost more than 100 XP depending on how we want to give out rewards. While the "grind" of future points might take longer, you would also be progressing by playing relevant content while earning loot and XP that is also relevant to your character. Sev~ Clearly, this system can be monetized easily - they can just offer "virtue XP points" bundles in the store, like they do with promotion points for not-so-epic battles.

    You believe there's still a team of CMs?

    I doubt they even care enough, unless they are getting paid to post.
