  1. Brrokk - personally I don't think you qualify as a "fanboy" - as a dwarf I am quite sure you have rabies ;-)
  2. Since primarily the loyal base reads the official forums, spamming it (even for a noble cause) is going to make the poster look bad - and get labeled a malcontent or worse. It was also be annoying for people that MAY actually be looking for valid information. The AC players already know about it - and I suspect many gamers do as well - taking the childish spam route is not the way go (third party sites are a better bet - imo)

    TP Pricing for HD announced

    A consideration - and not sure if it applies - but when the lifetimers have a large stock of TP - keeping the stock large would seem to be to the players advantage (even if not playing) - I am thinking in terms of an outstanding balance sheet in that if I haven't spent my TP - Turdbine still can't claim these as assets since they are still outstanding - probably a bad analogy and I am not explaining it well - but a few will catch my drift

    And tips for a new Rift player ?

    That is helpful ! I wish I knew that last weekend when I was playing - I kept running back to vendors (I tend to be ocd about inventory management)

    And tips for a new Rift player ?

    Thanks for all the tips folks ! They are all helpful :-) I do tend to be a completionist (unfortunately) so I rarely try to rush to level cap . I created my characters on Threesprings shard and used the guild finder to find a "mature" guild - it seems to be very busy at the higher levels. I do find the patron benefits useful - and I did want to throw a little money at the game to support it (My idea of f2p (for me at least) is to check it out to see if you like it - then throw money that way when time/budget permit Keep the info coming - I haven't check out the official forums yet (given the lotro forums - I was kind of afraid to .... )

    HD launch Nov 18

    Curioius - I was playing LOTRO before the beta, was not banned on the forums, occasionally posted here (rarely over there) - like the game - hate the official forum management of what has been said here and on the official forums find the changes dismaying to say the least This guy obviously got seriously butthurt sometime this week to latch on to Doro like a leech - lol
  7. That's awesome Crell - and certainly mirrors how I feel from what I've seen on the forums/dev diaries
  8. New message: Failed to read authentication response - lol

    They killed /follow on warsteeds

    I find when using 'follow' on resource nodes you have to be relatively close - where as before I could click on one on the edge of my radar and follow would take me to it - also follow on the fellowship I was in did not work - my horse started running the opposite direction - thankfully I was on hunter and not guardian (my reflexes are too slow for melee mounted combat without follow - if I wanted to play xbox I would get one)

    Update 11.3 Release Notes.

    And they broke the /follow command for mounted combat ...... time for me to level some low level alts I guess

    If you were the Executive producer?

    #1 Fix the lag - like many have said #2 Modify Hobbit presents like so many have said to remove the "Vegas" factor

    What's your favorite feature in LOTRO?

    In Misty Mountains ??? I only every had it happen in Forochel - and I've been through a lot of blizzards here in Maine and in Misty Mountains
  13. As a side note - the signal to noise ratio here is become just as bad as the "official forums" (and I know I have not aided that at times) I have been leveling another guard and having a blast running the epics (just finish Vol 1 Book 4 yesterday) - so for some of us the game is still enjoyable. The forums game has become a drag

    Banned from the Turbine Forum...

    Curious that the fan-bois can post about other games and 18 hours later the posts are still there - but any non-fanboi post about another game and the post gets deleted within an hour .... The mods can't be too busy since I notice other threads are locked. Another prime example of favoritism.
  15. Welcome to all the guests reading theses forums. Here you will find full discussions of both sides regarding LOTRO (as well as other games) without the editorial management style of the "official" forums. Granted, not everyone here loves LOTRO - but not all are haters either. Even those with the strongest opinions pro/con do have valid points and has no worry of retaliation here. In any case, welcome and enjoy your stay (fwiw - I am still having a blast in LOTRO with all my alts - ymmv) Edit: Curious - there were 79 guests when I started writing the post above - now back down to 3 - lol.

    Update 11.2 Release Notes

    At least hunter tracking was restored to its previous usefulness before one of the updates broke it
  17. My intent was not to paint anyone here as anti-Lotro in any way shape or form (sometimes I really wish English was my first language instead of my 3rd language) - and I apologize for any misunderstanding - I should have phrased that better. I guess I would paint myself as anti-Turbine management (I am of the opinion that many of the devs are trying - and the poor GMs and CS reps with their hands tied and muzzles on are in for the shaft no matter what they do)

    Sapience stop lying please

    The number of views on some of the forums I visit gets upped if the page is refreshed - did someone set a bottle of beer on their F5 key ?

    Stuck on checking Dat files

    Thanks Doro - I have actually tried that a couple of times :-)
  20. I've been trying to re-install /update LOTRO on a couple of machines here at work and have found that both my Windows 7 and Windows XP get stuck at Checking Dat files - both stick at 77% I can do a ping/tracert to gls.lotro.com, and don't see anything strange in the Event logs. Anyone got past this one ? Thanks for any insights !

    I agree - Spidey is troll Given that - welcome all !

    Why are games dumbed down?

    I didn't mean to accuse anyone here of being "l33t" What the radiance did do was prevent someone like me that OCCASIONALLY had a chance and a time window to actually participate in a raid but was GATED because of radiance. Granted - this was an insignificant amount of my playing time but it happened often enough that I resent any kind of gate of this nature. (There are enough other gates such as level, traits, etc.) As I recall, some of my crafted gear actually had some stats that were better than the rad gear on occasion (I thought at the time this was a bug). I guess I miss what you mean by flatter gear (other than me jumping in my old Buick and running over it .... )

    Why are games dumbed down?

    Radiance was good for raiders/hard core and bad for casuals - in my opinion. I don't feel it added anything other than another time sink/gate to certain areas and helped the "l33t" feel "l33t3r" . At the time I never had enough time to get the raids done when they were done by the kin(s) I was in (my play time is/was always off of prime time).
  24. A strategic smiley/emoticon really helps in the translation at times ... I know you came off looking more like a bully to me (and I am DEFINTELY not speaking for others) with your comment - thank you for clarifying that
