  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.
  11. If this is not a confirmation of LOTRO being owned by DBG and SSG being a non entity, I don't know what is:
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Wait a sec... Is DMH Nymphonic? :o
  15. I grabbed it while it was on serious discount and am planning to play it sometime in the hopefully not too distant future.
  16. Whitelisted, although I've not been visiting nearly as often as I used to.
  17. Rebinging TNG myself. A couple years ago I did the whole thing (ToS, Animated, films, TNG, films, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise) spread through several months. I thought I would never get the chance again, though I occasionally put on the odd favourite episode or two. Now in this bleakest of all times it provides me with the necessary escape (together with my ongoing translation of Lucian's True Tales).
