  1. And not to let it go amidst the forum closure discussion, happy birthday MueR 🎈
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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?"
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. If this is not a confirmation of LOTRO being owned by DBG and SSG being a non entity, I don't know what is:
  8. DBG < Colombus Nova < Renovo < Putin I think -though naturally can't prove- that SSG is merely a front and somewhere in between WB is also somehow involved.
  9. Since before I left the game I've had a hunch that they may be feeding some shills not with real money but gambling keys or other perks of the kind. Besides, some employees might be posting under multiple aliases. (Not that there aren't enough stupid addicts to shill voluntarily and pay on top of it.) Call it a conspiracy theory but this person's -sort of- whistleblowing reminded me again: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?682628-Im-so-happy-servers-are-unstable-!&p=8030563#post8030563
  10. Wait a sec... Is DMH Nymphonic? :o
