    Issues with site

    I use Chrome, and have cleared cookies and cache, but it usually doesn't help - everything ends up getting marked as unread, and starts the cycle all over again. I have other browsers installed, but don't use them, and I don't think it's worthwhile to switch browsers just for one site.

    Issues with site

    Not sure where else to post this, but I have a couple of issues with the site: 1) If I click on the Mark site read link, topics immediately get marked as read, but then the site refreshes and the topics are no longer marked as read (they reappear in bolded state). 2) Periodically, the site seems to refresh, and topics I marked as read return as unread. For example, today, the I had dream about LOTRO, SSG hates LotRO PvMP and its PvPers, Black Friday Sale (and New Item), and Such impudence... threads returned to their unread, bolded state, despite there being no new replies since the last time I visited the site last night.

    SSG hates LotRO PvMP and its PvPers.

    No - I didn't mean that there was a specific request for Osgiliath, but there were multiple requests for some kind of new PvP zone. I know that creeps often requested that Forochel be opened to PvP, for example.

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    I'm only surprised that it didn't happen sooner. The reputation grind was the main way people earned LP to avoid paying for a subscription.

    SSG hates LotRO PvMP and its PvPers.

    Wait, no one asked for Osgiliath? I seem to remember a lot of requests for another PvP map. Osgiliath failed because it was so poorly designed and offered no real incentives.

    Black Friday Sale (and New Item)

    The task carry-alls are a bonus for every LP purchase. So, if you want one on Landy, buy points and log into a toon there; if you want one on Ark, buy more points and log into a toon there.
  7. SSG has a new item - the Task Item Carry-All. It comes in small (10 slots) and a medium (25 slots). Each slot can contain a stack of 2,000 task items. They are not available in the store (yet), but are a "bonus" for buying LOTRO Points. https://www.lotro.com/en/game/articles/lord-rings-online-black-friday-deals Lord of the Rings Online Black Friday Deals!

    Someone overlaid the Dor Amarth and Mordor Besieged maps...

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    Cordovan claims that he is part of a raiding kin on a personal account, and that his main character is a hunter (of course). It's hard for me to reconcile that statement with his general cluelessness about the game and its mechanics demonstrated on his stream - from simple things like using the map or quest tracker to not knowing where settlements are located, to more advanced things like skill rotations and or building stats. I can only imagine that his attempts to build out an LI are going to be laughable (although, I guess that won't happen since he got 2 FA imbued LIs when the Valared his character).

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    The LOTRO Market uses Digital River to process your payment. If successful, it returns a code that you then have to enter into the in-game LOTRO store. This is by design, so that people can buy xpac codes to give away. In the past, the LOTRO team has given away xpacs as charity rewards or other events.

    Just Another Day in Monetezation

    Well, yeah...I did say they would introduce it. It's kind of a no-brainer. I'm just surprised it happened this quickly and was announced. Usually they slip these things into the store without fanfare.
  12. Today on his stream, Cord showed the notes for an upcoming release, and a Virtue XP accelerator is being added to the store. That Didn't Take Long...

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    I didn't realize that. I only ever transferred everything to Ark during the server merge. One of the things I hate about LOTRO is that it doesn't offer the ability to move or delete items in bulk. I would love to select multiple items to drop in a vault or simply delete. Even if I had to confirm the action, it would be worth it.

    It's fairly easy. Let's say you have a toon on Arkenstone, and your wardrobe has 409/270 items in it. Technically, you can't put anything in the wardrobe, but you have a nice, shiny new pair of pants that you want to keep as a cosmetic. Well, transfer your account shared item (for free) to Landroval. Now your wardrobe is 0/270, and you can put those pants in it. The your transfer (for free) your account shared items back to Arkenstone. Now your wardrobe has 410/270 items in it.

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    A friend joined Bludborn on his stream yesterday; this friend is a returning player who rolled an RK and valared him. He got all the trait points, massive amounts of virtue XP (I'd say most traits were about 1/2 finished), and an first age imbued LI set. The LIs were not maxed out, though. And a decent set of armour/jewelry. His hew toon was in better shape that most of my existing level 100-110 were. It is quite disheartening.
