  1. If Sapience was only referring to the last few days then that is worse in my opinion. Surely CM having some goodbye events was to be expected. After all the work done by CM to help launch the game in the EU and to build an excellent community they should have been allowed to say goodbye with a little bit of fun

  2. Here is what Sapience has to say about the transfer

    Correct. The link will continue to lead there until the actual migration page is active. Until we've secured the data and the official transition (June 1) takes place we cannot activate the migration tool. All that should take 1-2 days with a target to have everything back online and playable within ~3 days.


  3. Turbine and Codemasters had the same tools needed to host events since beta of SoA. At the end of the SoA beta, much which has been done by Codies for events appeared at that time. They also spawned pigs that needed to be corraled and many many Ogres, Dragons, Drakes, etc.

    And I remember seeing a 50 foot tall +Satine helping promote people to level 50 to compete in the end-of-beta events! -)

    So the tools have always been there. Whether they were "allowed" to officially use them or not is the question.

    Surly at some point in the last 4 years Turbine could have disabled those tools that they dont authorise the use of. I can understand why they added them for beta testing but surely it would be easy to stop them from working. Its not like Turbine didnt know CM were using them, they were doing so for years and yet they did nothing about it

  4. Oh I'm sure that if You'd go and post that on US someone there would find perfect reasonable explanation for Turbine too. I won't do it tho as I dislike it on both Turbine and Codies end no matter what the excuse for rip-off.

    At least CM used the same exchange rate all the time, although they could have updated after a year or 2, but Turbine cant even use the same exchange rate just now. The exchange rate they are using for the world transfer is approx £1 = €1.16, yet for the special 12 month offer they are using is approx £1 = €1.13, so who knows what they will use for monthly subs and for store points

  5. I don't like having different prices due to exchange rates taken our of nowhere. Charging 20% more in € vs $ is just ripoff for me. Not that CM did anything different, the favor was just for UK then.

    Actually it's funny to see You cossie complain, as when exact same thing happened in EU, when CM were charging up to more 30% for lifetime special offer if You were outside UK. I remember You being okay with that and defending CM...

    Still I don't see reason why people won't use them. They will, just like people outside UK and euro zone did use them under CM management. They'll just pay more :(

    Codemasters used the exchange rates that were correct when they first offered the service and then never changed them, which is common business practice. Turbine are not using the current exchange rates

  6. Orions latest info regarding gambits

    37 and that number will likely go up to 40.


    Well, you do need an aggro dump and something of a snap aggro and maybe some tactical defense with a chance for some stun/daze immunity.

    Remember! Everything can change.


  7. Dont imagine many people will be using the world transfer service going by the prices

    $24.95 €21.95 £18.95 per transaction


    The old prices with CM were

    £11.99 / €17.99 / $24.95 per transaction.

    That is a rise of 58% for us Brits and 22% for those in the Euro zone ouch.gif

  8. A while back I said other companies would be looking at Turbine to see how DDO and LOTRO did after going F2P and would look to copy if it increased revenue and it appears that it is starting to happen. I would not be surprised to see more companies following this trend

  9. I'm probably just blind as usual but where's the forum announcement? I looked at Codemasters: News & Announcements and didn't see anything. Same with News & Announcements in the LotRO subforum.

    Go into general discussion and it is at the top of the forum
