  1. Postal 2 giveaway on GOG: Last 46 hours as of posting this...
  2. Steam 90% of the time, and Epic Store. They deal in local currency and prices are reasonable especially during the very frequent sales. Back in the relatively more reasonable times when I could afford to spend in $/€ I used to buy on GOG and Humble Bundle too.
  3. So my hunch of several years that the who thing was a Putinite money laundering scheme was correct after all 😏
  4. On my 4th year without LOTRO 👍🏼 Been playing and enjoying multiple games. At times still missing the world of LOTRO and the questlines in the older areas, and whenever that bout of nostalgia creeps up I'm simply cursing the gambling pimps who murdered it (often loudly) and carrying on. Are you guys idiots for keeping up? Well, if you are, I've been one of you for several years too many before finally calling it off. No, we're not idiots. They grabbed most of us by the balls by securing the Middle-earth IP and that's hardly an inexcusable addiction. We ought to hold on to every single thing that gives us the tiniest bit of joy, even if it means sticking to the trainwreck of LOTRO. Thanks for keeping this forum alive guys 🍺
  5. And not to let it go amidst the forum closure discussion, happy birthday MueR 🎈
  6. Sad news yet not too surprising indeed. Been quite a latecomer but enjoyed my time here. Thanks MueR for keeping it up for so long and all others. Kibi /swordsalute
  7. This "Page 12" of the presentation (first link in Moderate Peril's post above) has an entry: "Daybreak acquires Turbine and Standing Stone Games..." hence my remark.
  8. Many of us have suspected that SSG was a subsidiary of DBG. What's revealing is that it turns out to be a subsidiary of another DBG subsidiary 😹 Turbine, apparently, was sold by WB to DBG, which explains their office, virtual servers and retaining the IP deals. I know nothing about this EG7. Are they a gaming meta-company or another "investor?"
  9. Skimmed through these two threads: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?683113-War-of-Three-Peaks-What-is-the-point-in-being-VIP https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?683093-New-Mini-Expansion-Pack-quot-War-of-the-Three-Peaks-quot-announced-normal-collector-s-and-ultimate-edition and realized once again that I hate certain kinds of idiots even more than shills. I understand the obsession/addiction angle; been there myself for too long. But the state of the game these past two years (as far as I can glimpse without first hand experience) is beyond any kind of justification.
  10. I retain my belief for several shills being either DBG employees in disguise or literally shills, as in being compensated with in-game gambling tokens etc. As for the rest, let them keep getting shat on; they deserve what they get.
