  1. I reported "Cannabaceae" on Landroval, explained the drug reference, and Turbine closed my ticket without doing anything.  If that isn't a drug reference, a violation of an explicit line in the naming policy, then I don't know what is.  Maybe that particular GM was a pot smoker, not that there is anything wrong with that, so the rule was ignored, which *is* wrong.

  2. Is it possible to make an MMO so complicated that it's a turn-off to think about going back and dealing with it?


    A fair bit disappointed with the collectible card minions.  I was hoping for LotRO skirmish soldiers dialed to 11, not a riff off of SWTOR, melded with Neverwinter collectible monetizability.


    Turning Hammerknell into a raid IA zone is cray cray living on the edge though.  Thanks for posting.

  3. I quit playing because the bosses were too hard for my Templar.  I kept dying and dying.  On the exit poll (which was very good btw), I put that the solo play was too difficult.


    J/K I just really wanted to troll Spidey.


    Hoping to re-sub to ESO when I get to 100 in LotRO.

  4. positive players will still be allowed to troll. 


    That is so annoying.


    Good luck to Sapience.  I'm sure it will be more satisfying trying to do something that matters and makes a difference instead of managing this AWSD monkey business.  I hope the old guard continuing to abandon ship is a sign of life and not of approaching doom.


    How would you guys rate texture recycling on your list of MMO frustrations?


    It's just background to me personally. I would focus on the highlights, which should be designed to distract from the in-between art spaces.  Angry Joe criticized the rock textures in his ESO review, and he was rightfully scolded. If you posed the question: would you rather have content, i.e. a new dungeon to explore that uses recycled textures and borrowed wall furniture, or no new dungeon/content?  The answer is sort of obvious.


    Also in response to the article criticisms, it's great they are putting in a few fishing quests and making the hobby relevant.  Just because you are level 100, there should be no new fishing quests?  At what level should fishing quests get cut off as being beneath the heroic characters any more?  I would be more critical of all fishing quests being doable at any level of fishing skill.

  6. The producer letter existing is appreciated.  Impressed by the LI change.  Wildstar seems to have an achievement-based evolution of its legendary items, and it's impressive that Turbine guys are stepping up to the challenge, allowing legacy unlocks based on content you complete (implied from the forum snippet that was posted here).  This is worth putting effort into over another level cap increase if they can milk the system in the press.  LI's are a big reason people leave.  On the other hand, the essence system defrays the step forward by creating another thing that needs grinding and slotting.


    Beorning at L1 is a good idea. Global chat is excellent, and so is increased friends list.  Really not much to complain about.


    I just got out of the hospital, and I'm not well enough to sit at my desk chair and play anything, but maybe this weekend.  I'm looking forward to checking out this update.

  7. Played the beta, and just don't enjoy the F2P aspects, like LotRO. I loved Neverwinter Nights by Bioware, such a beautiful, well-made, classy game. How many single player games have had three+ expansions.  Plus it had the online multiplayer mode with player-made and hosted private/public multi-zone campaign maps.

  8. Probably Dreya Weber for A Marine Story and The Gymnast.  Ellen Page is my future pick now that she is out and doing a lesbian film.


    Or maybe Anthony Ray Parker, who played Dozer in the Matrix.  Every word he says just drips with subtlety and innuendo.  When he says "Everything a body needs", my lips whisper unbidden "yes--oh yes--" and I have a horrible urge to get filled up with that glop.

  9. Welcome to this microcosm of angry smart people.  I mostly lurk too because I feel dumb whenever I say something.  My personal kin on Landroval is The Puddifoot Pipemaids.  Let's have a civilized party sometime on one of the 20-something days a year that I still log in. 

  10. The screenshots do look a bit like a hodgepodge of rehash, but that's predictable.  The ships and the sea look pretty good.  Hope there are palm trees and beaches.  And pirates.  And pirate rep.  And parrots.  And wenches.
