  1. I don't think some of you actually read the forums and come here only for some good ol' fashioned confirmation bias. That Hurin guy has been bitching about the slippery slope of the cash grab f2p store model for years. Seems unlikely for a shill to point out to people that eventually everything will be p2w and they're going to be ripping us off with sub par content to push out stupid shit in the store. He was right you know.

    Meanwhile, back at Turbine...

    Spoiler alert guys. Gosh I haven't even seen the latest tits...I mean episodes. Turbine developing any game is like watching your 90 year old grandfather attempt to bend over and pick up a dime. At some point you would prefer he just give up and let someone else do it.

    Well, Frelorn didn't do much of anything really, as far as forum moderation went. That's why people like TheJagoff and that Thorgrum turd went unscatched for so long. The fact is some people don't have lives outside of their gaming cocoon. Their only social interaction is online games, in this case Lotro. When they feel that someone is "threatening" their beloved game, be it criticism, "trolling", etc. they go on the offensive. They take it as a personal affront to them. The same thing happens when someone gets bent out of shape if you don't love a band they love. They act as if they wrote the songs. Now their "offensive" is blowing rainbows up the cm or dev's asses until they can fart multicolored bubbles. It's incredibly frustrating for someone who feels let down by the game. Just like it's frustrating when you're having technical issues and 85% of the response are "I don't crash" There seems to be a commonly held belief that if it does not happen to me, it must not exist. Now regarding whether a specific post is worthy of banning it would have to be something truly horrific. What often occurs is that they get a report on someone and then skim through their post history to find a pattern of behavior. If you have a pattern of being a pain in the ass then it's likely going to get you banned. If you throw in the name of the CM or the poster that the response is directed toward. Well, then you've just hit the fuck you lottery.

    You know the only reason there was that whole xp, vista debacle was because the security protocols that are tied to the store were updated and they're not supported by either of those OS. The solution was creating a way for xp and vista users to continue to open the store with the browser of their choosing. The reason why they wont "officially" drop support is because they're really isn't a reason. The code they use for this game is so wonky, patched and back asswards that no one that works for the company even knows what to do with it. The game is not optimized, will never be optimized. Money is the biggest reason, but there is that other reason that no one speaks about. That's the 65+ year old players who will never give up xp because they've gotten used to it and spend a shit load of money. As far as they're concerned they can look at pictures on facebook, check their email, and load lotro so they can post on the forums that using the AH one shot them in bree and it's too hard.

    I'm your white knight. I'm worried about your health. Take a break, go play some FFXIV. I know how much you love that game.

    Let me explain it to you. You are entitled to your opinions or differences there of with any manner of persons, however, where you lose that is when you imply that someone is a diseased whore. It's a fucking game dude, a video game, and one that isn't that great if you compare it to other games of its ilk. Now you are more than welcome to refer to someone as a diseased whore if that person gave you herpes after sleeping with 20 other people for money. I doubt that's the case since your biggest complaint is that this person offended you by their unwavering support of a game and it's creator. You may be wound a bit too tight and should step back from the ledge.

    I'm sorry but that little kid avatar is creeping me out. the only thing that would make it worse is a pair of glowing eyes. Other than that, I might be falling in love with amorey...maybe we can have little forum babies together.

    You guys really need to look up the word "attack." Thank god the FFXIV forums aren't like this.

    Shills are only really needed when you have a shitty product. People have a hard time realizing that love for the game, and criticism are mutually exclusive. They are not, btw. If you could give Amorey credit for one thing, she's at least consistent. I've seen quite a number of asskissers running around the OF that stopped kissing ass when it was no longer convenient, or served their purpose. Kickman loved lotro when he was on the players council, but his views have since soured. Frickinmuck, all but received a check from Sapience, he's gone, and so is she. I find Mar-whatshername to be a far more egregious purveyor of "shilldom." Amorey shares opinions, Mar will outright disseminate false information. To quote the late great Benjamin Franklin. "Search your feelings, let go of your hate"

    Yes! and so many f2p games design content so terrible you run to the store so you don't have to do it. I can't think of anyone, off the top of my head, who wanted trait trees. They rammed them down our throats anyway and the player base started drying up. I think the people who came out in support were more of the type that believed accepting it and doing a little bootlicking would earn them some special points for down the road. A great many of those players left as well.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin's_law It's probably the first time I've seen someone being accused of being a paid shill where it might actually be true.

    This is from some blogspot/forum whatszamajig. I couldn't link the actual post so I'll just copy/paste and quote. "I wouldn't actually be surprised if Avery were either Erlinges or Famine? I mean, it wouldn't be the first time. On the EU forums there was this über bitch Tahitoa who had a fetish for kitties and liked to close threads on an hourly basis. There was also some über fangirl (and I mean really über, since she agreed with absolutely everything Funcom did and never spoken bad about them or the game anytime) named Amorey telling players all around how the game is awesome and how Funcom are great developers etc. Well, what do you know, Amorey turned out to be Tahitoa, the fanbot that happens to be paid by Funcom. She is no longer on the forums, fortunately, but this only shows what sorts of tricks Funcom does."

    I'm not to sure about that. Right now, they're getting it from all sides. From the AoV, the expac prices, that shit trailer. etc, etc.

    Maybe they said this "Cordovan can go fuck himself with a chainsaw. So can Amorey, Mar-Cockholster, and every other Turbine shill."

    Oh yeah that one. Thanks for reminding me.

    Mordor Trailer

    The epic takes about 10 minutes to complete. The only reward is a model of mt doom. They needed to make way for the "Black book of Mordor" which requires the expac to access. The other cash grab is those gorgoroth steelbound lootboxes that require a special "black key" to even open. I was told they don't drop from landscape and the only way to get them is in the store.

    There is a potential exploit similar to the essence duping one. It has to do with ashes vendoring.

    Mordor Dev: Leveling and Difficulty

    You forgot one important oversight on their part. "Oops, these essences created a huge amount of stat bloat and now we have nowhere to go" Their solution is to increase the grind tenfold, again, negate the last few years of progression and make us start from scratch. They painted themselves into a corner and now they need to drastically overhaul the system to fix it. Everyone is getting a huge nerf across the board and it's going to take so much more time and energy to get us to about 2/3s what we were previously. This new radiance system and total stat overhaul is so that all of that old gear we have is totally worthless on day one. It's not even good enough to make it five levels into the new region. I'm so sick of this shit.
