  1. This was posted here, I found it very funny, even given the post re-release date of Wednesday. Sorry if repost. Just before the links SSG had my interest for a short time when they took over, I thought maybe things would be different. Now they have been in charge a while, I can see things are basically same shit different name. It's sad, as this was a chance to wipe the slate clean. I suspect the next year may be Interesting Times for SSG. And if the post above about an Ashes vendor dupe is true, well, no words.

  2. The whole 10 year thing smacks of MoL. This is entirely my OWN opinion and experience of him, given some MANY years in alpha testing... many major updates get put up for testing or festivals, and I will quickly say "but, this just doesn't work, because XYZ" as an alpha tester I'll be told direct from MoL "We can't please everyone all the time..." A hippy kinda answer anyway. Even if I was constructive, and he will say that all the time. A polite way to say "this is what you're getting" And he ALWAYS replied on story driven elements, narratives, or episodic content. IE I asked him when
  3. Yeah as a couple replied I'm not here moaning because my PC cant run the game and I think LOTRO is at fault for MY performance issues..... I have a very very capable machine, CPU, memory, GPU, SSD, It is not my fault I log in and because of where I am in game, I CTD. Performance of the game is crap and it IS on LOTROs side - end of arguement. But moving on, I don't know if maybe I'm just older and don't want to go on massive gaming benders, or is it that LOTRO has moved to a game design that is just boring? Maybe a bit of both. I had an INCREDIBLY tight kin, we were a small f
  4. Interesting replies, it all sums up my own feelings and thoughts on the game. It's just sad to see things get so bad that even here we aren't motivated all that much to discuss a new update, it's kinda just "meh" at this point. I've been using these forums on and off since I guess Stangard / Rohan ish? Normally always an update would have some commentary, this was just noted for me at least as one of the first where no one had said much at all almost like it wasn't happening. Hope everyone is happy in other games or real world endeavours! lol Don't think I can look away totall
  5. See all those caps in the title? This is serious right lol Let me explain. U20 just hit live, on these forums, as far as I am aware, no one has discussed it at all during beta. In fact this forum seems SUPER quiet like no one really gives a fig about LOTRO. No one commenting on release notes, performance, nothing. Have we all just moved on? I'm just keeping a toe dipped in for shits and giggles, I have the test client installed on my PC but nothing else, no intention of playing live. This forum just seems a bit like TOO QUIET.
  6. I feel I shouldn't have spat my dummy, but sometimes things I see REALLY get me going. This is not only clearly a focus on money making, but it's directed in the wrong way, IE most money, least effort. Is it easier to make another compelling instance cluster, or just rape people for housing.... which I will tell you is based on ISLANDS, so you will likely not get people seeing the house you've paid REAL money for. If this was in game gold, no worries, grind if you want, but people will be buying AND renting for real money. It's not right, honestly it isnt. I've 'hinted' at thi
  7. If Turbine spent considerable dev time making new housing zones, with everything the housing update from a while ago was meant to have, but then asked you to pay a 'large' amount in Mithril to purchase and upkeep the property, what would be your initial reaction? I mean in the region of you could buy a AAA steam title for the purchase price of the house alone
  8. Hi! Yes, a lot of people posting here are mis-judged if they post on OF, in that they do love and want the game to be great, but they are so annoyed at bad decisions and lack of decent honest timely communication that they feel they can only vent honestly here, and not be flammed or banned. Some may even not play anymore, or very little, but they still have interest enough to want to know what is happening to the game for the sake of friends that still do play, even though it may not be right for them any longer. Wishlist: 1 - Regular open forum comms. Keep the players in the
  9. Just in case anyone is interested, or cares, I did some digging of obvious names on LinkedIn, Twitter etc, such as Ryan Penk (Pinion), and Jeff Libby (Madeof Lions). Couldn't find any evidence that either had been canned. I started to click around the 'People also viewed' links to the right on LinkedIn, and came across Todd DeMelle, apparently the Art Director at Lotro. Anyway, what I find very interesting is that on his LinkedIn page he lists what we could assume to be the main team that worked on The Battle of Pellenor Fields: Lord of the Rings Online: The Battle of Pelennor Fields

  11. Seen already myself..... didn't pose this on OF, but does it cost money to rent or whatever a phonenumber in US?? Like in UK if you want an 0800 or 0845 number AFAIK you have to pay for the service as a business, just thinking this could be the main reason they have dumped phone service? It doesn't look good, but as always they try and butter it up by improved online support - yeah, right - EG Few years back, I called them on Skype from UK, to pay for some expacks to be applied to my GFs account just AFTER her Bday, but paid in advance by myself, credit card details involved etc, can
  12. That's my understanding of it, yes. If you set up 3 displays using just Windows display drivers, then when you make a game go full screen it most likely will display fullscreen on only the primary display, whereas Eyefinity sets up your main Windows display as one big monitor, even though physically they are 2 or three, or potentially more - I think Eyefinity can do up to 6 displays, 3x2. This made me lol! When I first got my AMD card I tested Eyefinity, just to see if I could get it up and running, with my main monitor, and an old one I had lying around. They were the same r
  13. Yeah It can span multi-monitors. My rig has 3 1080p monitors, fed by an AMD card, using their Eyefinity technology... essentially it makes the main display span all monitors, instead of having an extended or duplicated display. I think Nvidia's equiv is called "Surround". Once you've got either eyefinity or surround setup, most games you run will pick up the main display res, say 5760x1080, you pick that in game from options and away you go. I'm not sure if it can be made to work from just windows display settings. Sorry I can't be more helpful!
  14. It will likely be renewed IMHO. Simply so the rights are in hand, rather than letting them go to competitors. Sadly LOTRO masses will see this as a sign of success, where in reality it is much more akin to "warehousing" web addresses back in the day. It's interesting to ponder just what JRR would make of all this. Lately with LOTRO I think he would certainly be saying, "this is taking the piss now" But hey, America, Profit, etc..... I have to mention that in the anniversay stream Vyv mentioned U18 as her fave moment - the polish of the build, watching her team come t
  15. I suspect Turbine's team building exercises may look a bit like this:
