    I can understand that, Doro. I'm glad you're enjoying it!

    There are already some awkward questions popping up from new players who aren't so blinded by "OMG Tolkien!" that they just take all the clunkiness of the game in stride. I expect that to increase as the people who don't decide to leave get further along.

    Killer training dummies! This is the best thing ever! https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?668855-Training-dummies-fighting-back&p=7888971#post7888971 I'm very tempted to log in and experience this myself, I've got an alt parked in the Snowbourn AH not far from the training dummies.

    There's also a lot of heavy-duty sleuthing going on to figure out what's really going on with the broken queue system. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?668800-Queue-Still-Broken&p=7888957#post7888957

    Even though the dev responsible for this has clearly said it's a bug and will be fixed soon, people are berating others who are complaining about dying at the early levels from it, and asking for it to stay as it is because it's more challenging and better to force people to group up right out of the gate.

    They know, they think they can recapture the old glory days back when everything was brand new. Kinda sad, like high school reunions can be sometimes. Crafting nodes still aren't shared in LOTRO, are they?

    Yes, that's what they said. Can't wait to see the ruckus when the Legendary servers get merged into one (you know it will happen) and the inevitable name conflicts start happening.

    OMG. Actual quote from a thread where people are sharing queue positions and wait time for the new server: " I don't think most players mind the queue, it's just the queue doesn't show any sign of working. And from what I can gather, it may actually not be working." https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?668718-You-must-wait-before-logging-into-this-world&p=7887578#post7887578

    I know, right? This attitude is what SSG was talking about in their Mordor video talking about the Ultimate edition - "This is for the players who love everything we do". The willingness of some players to continually come up with excuses for SSG's shenanigans is truly amazing.

    Yeah, I feel for Vastin too. Is this someone who's been around on the team for a long time, does anyone know? I get the feeling reading between the lines of those recent posts that Vastin's basically saying that the people who did the work before were lazy and/or clueless and just threw stuff together to get it to work without having any real understanding of the system or thought for the future. When you think back to the remarks from Turbine employees on that one company review site, it makes a lot of sense seeing what a mess the code is in.

    "Everything's broken, but OMG we have a BlueName that's not MoL posting in the forums, how cool is that!!!!!!" Oh, and there's pretty butterflies in the game now too, so there's that. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?668464-Wow-butterflies!&p=7884507#post7884507

    It's mind-boggling. But it is amusing seeing the threads of people who want to have riding disabled till 35, no quest tracker, fog of war back on the maps, leveling slowed, etc and to see the pushback from others who have a limit to just how much nostalgia they're willing to pay for. They think they're going to get that "new MMO smell" from a barely held-together jalopy with bad tires and no spare in the trunk.

    If they did that, I'd seriously consider trying it out. LOTRO was my first MMO and back then I had no idea what I was doing. I'd love to be able to go back and see it with fresh eyes in the light of all the MMO experience I've had since then. I doubt I'd care enough to level all the way to 50, but I could see myself going VIP for one month. People get so mad when you remind them of that, too.

    It sounds like an experiment to see how much people starting out completely new with no alts to help them out will be willing to buy stuff in the store to ease the way. Giving them metrics on how to design things to make that decision even more attractive going forward.
