    Has anybody seen this?

    I'm referring to the fact that for a great many players of Lotro all combat can be done without ever moving the character. Compared to lotro, ffxiv is a frenetic action rpg.

    I agree for the most. Unless that game becomes vaporware or is just incredibly bad. The market won't be able to support two LotR mmos, especially when one is 15 years old. Lotro will never truly lose all of it's paying players due to the advanced age of many of them. If the new game is more action oriented like a lot of newer mmos have become it won't attract a 60 yr old whale.

    I think the assumption used to be that WB wanted Turbine due to the LotR ip, but after having gone back and read some things in that thread, it became clear that they couldn't have cared less. If WB wanted the mmo rights then it would have been very easy to wait it out until Turbine went to the table to negotiate the option to renew and essentially price them out of contention. When WB/Turbine divested itself of Lotro and it was announced DBG was taking over publishing a lot of people believed the Golden age of Lotro was finally going to arrive. However, in reality, that's when the nickle and dime tactics would truly begin.

    The Missing 2019 Producer Letter & Severlin?

    https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?670727-WTB-2019-Producer-s-Letter&p=7909446#post7909446 "I think you know full well that the letter is probably just about finished but has to be ratified by the legal department and this is what takes the time. If you didn't know and weren't using this pretence to have a bash in the hope your whining would increase the speed..... then in future just do a little research before you feel the need to create a whole thread about something that is common knowledge.... I was going to link the info for you but that would only encourage further indolence" ^ This is the kind of shit that makes me want to choke someone. What a useless cocksucker.

    I'm glad I started that thread, because it turned into something quite magnificent.

    No plans for PVMP on LS

    This is what irks me so much. Instead of letting the game shut down back when people still had some good will towards Turbine/SSG, they dragged it out until people who used to love the game, now hate it with a fiery passion. I played the game for eight years and instead of having bittersweet feelings about the whole thing. I am filled with anger and a hope that the game dies a miserable death and the company goes under. It might be irrational, but when people take something you loved and slowly and methodically destroy it, then you're going to be upset. Then you realize that it was done due to incompetence and lack of foresight. That only serves to piss me off even more.

    No plans for PVMP on LS

    That's a bit strong but the he in quotes sums it up pretty accurately. Some people really like the lore and running around in Middle Earth, and some people have a VIP card to the annual Team SSG bukkake party. You will never make a dent with those people. A slur against SSG or Lotro, to them, is a personal attack. It's like someone who gets enraged because you didn't care for a song they absolutely love. It's almost like their livelihood rests on the success or failure of Lotro. Nothing against you Amorey but your avatar is going to give me nightmares. I keep expecting that thing to pop out of my screen, rip open my chest and lay some eggs, but only if I tattle.
  8. I guess Vastin will now be taking on the mantle of burglar dev along with all the other ones. How long before he gets burnt out from doing everything?
  9. It was a session play and then a cutscene with 1998 graphics.
  10. The problem with Mordor was the ridiculous price points of the "special editions" and that they spent years upon years pushing people to a mostly solo game with a chat room. Players got used to how easy landscape content had become and I'd hazard a guess that those screaming for it to be lulz level of difficult were in the minority. Already low population, content that for most people requires a partner, and what you get is another drop in the pop. This is what happens when you are completely out of touch with your players. After I saw how terrible the destruction of the ring was dealt with so they could cram their pay to play "black book of bore more", I gave it up almost entirely.
  11. Don't pat yourself on the back too much you might break your arm.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    If you're talking about Maartena, that's a dude. His main toon's name is Shanah. The guy had a line in his bio that states "Yes I'm a guy" or something like that. I kind of feel left out that I haven't gotten a permaban yet. I've certainly said some things on the forums that were insulting and confrontational. I guess I need to up my game and use long strings of profanity.

    On the new Middle-earth MMO and Lotro

    If the quality of Warframe is any indication it could very well be a great game. The parent company of Digital Extremes seems to allow the devs to kind of do their own thing. Athlon games is not DE, but if they are allowed to make the kind of game they want to play without an iron grip from bean counters it could be very good. We'll see I suppose. It could end up being vaporware as well. I know one thing, the market couldn't support two LotR MMOs.

    People will run out of stuff to do and go back to the regular servers. It's going to happen because you burn through the content so fast. Most people using that server have pre-order crap that negates the xp reduction.

    My main toon had about 11 months of game time. However, a lot of that time was logged in doing nothing, while I was doing other things and using it for a glorified chat service.

    That issue will never change. My first time running into that was Rushock bog in the Shire. Flies and those damn slugs. People would run around only killing slugs and then some dumbass like myself would show up and only run into flies. The other annoying side effect is ore nodes. They spawn in randomly and in areas that have both a jeweler node, like platinum, and a regular node would end up with all platinum and no dwarf iron. If you asked people politely to ensure they grabbed both plat and dwarf iron you'd always end up with at least one asshole telling you to suck it up.

    "A helluva lot more than standing around skahald all day at 120. Its kind of fun to see how sore people are about the success of the legendary servers and the 1000+ people there is to play with constantly. It is a LOT of fun. You guys should actually try it."

    For the sake of Jesus' butthole they shouldn't be having queuing problems for less than 10k players. Unless it's a manufactured issue to give the illusion of high demand.

    Congratulations SSG you've reached a milestone... half the number of people that went to my high school. Revel in this accomplishment and be proud!

    "Our servers are so powerful now that we could contain every player on a single server." When 4k players is too much for your game to handle in the presence of games with 10s of thousands of concurrent players.

    They're not mad enough. For every 5 people that say they're pissed at SSG there is one person to call them a whiner and extol the taste of SSG's virtual dick. That's the feedback they listen to, not the angry players. They couldn't care less.

    They don't need old code. They need to give a shit enough to write new code. Creeps maintain the old trait system. The only reason they would need old code is if they wanted to reintroduce old bugs.

    That's what happens when you announce a follow up to Diablo III and then it turns out to be a mobile game.
