    Iran trying to start WW3?

    The Democrats? Wow you have your head really lodged up your ass don't you? It's those pesky Democrats who continue to push for increased military spending, even though the US eclipses the next, what's it up to now, 9 countries combined? /s To answer one of your questions, who profits from an oil shortage? Well Saudi Arabia for one, followed closely by US oil companies. The hilarious thing is that the US doesn't even get most of its oil from there. So, claiming that a hit to Saudi production is going to affect US gas prices is just an excuse to gouge consumers. Here is a lovely pie chart for you. http://www.randalolson.com/2014/08/28/where-the-u-s-gets-its-oil-from/ I think it's time for you to take off your orange tinted glasses.

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Streaming a game you're bad at can be quite entertaining to watch. However, I wouldn't expect someone like that to give out advice on how to play. There is also that most important of components, personality, and she has none. She's bad at the game, but she doles out advice like she's an expert.

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Ah the simple pleasures of not giving a fuck. Cord should have never had a "co-host." If he wanted to include "players" he should have gone with a rotating group of people. If you want to stream a game and can't find your asshole with a map, then fine. However, an "official" stream should not include the most ridiculous advice and suggestions. The official stream, if it's featuring game play, should have competent players who understand the mechanics. Otherwise, you're setting up new players for failure. There is plenty of time in the week to have a stream devoted to super casual play, but the only one hosted by an actual employee is not the time. I stopped watching lotro streamers a long time ago. You can only watch people level up a mini so many times before it gets boring. Watching people play badly and disseminate terrible advice stopped being amusing. In my opinion, which doesn't count for much, spending this much energy following and lambasting a total dipshit isn't worth your time. I can't sit and watch someone with a head that big wear a fez. It just looks stupid.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    You guys still post on the OF? Why?
  5. Why does it seem that such a large percentage of pvpers are nasty, vile people. I know not all of them are and I have met some that are generally good natured. Are these people, outside of the game, actually liked by other human beings. I can't imagine wanting to spend time with people who appear as if their soul purpose is to be humiliating, demoralizing, hateful, snarky, and smug. If it's a question of being overly competitive I would hate to play clue or monopoly with them. "Go directly to jail bitch, and I hope your mom gets cancer!"
  6. SSG really screwed the pooch with their "legendary" server. They had an opportunity to bring back a lot of people that were unhappy after trait trees, but alas, they couldn't find their assholes with a map. Shoving a imposed level cap on the live game was stupid, and I think the numbers reflect that. I would have resubscribed if they had gone back to pre trait trees, removed the store, and then had a progression server.
  7. The game will end when Daybreak isn't getting a commission check. As long as some money is coming in, at least enough to cover overhead(with some profit), the game will continue ad infinitum. I haven't given them any money in over a year. Once in a while a friend will ask me to hop in and help them with something. It's a great feeling when you can say, "sorry, I'm not vip, I don't have access." Rest assured that we won't know the end is near until they shut down the game. I'd hazard a guess that players will get a month of warning, at best Announcing a closure further out would cut into their bottom line.
  8. If they're in the Capitol Building, you certainly don't want people aimlessly milling around. The onus of comprehension is on the group, not the instructor. Seems more like a cover yo ass scenario.
  9. Did it ever occur to you that the instructor told them to repeat the instructions back to her to make sure they were listening and understood? Heaven forbid the lady wishes to avoid having a crap ton of people come up to her without any idea of what they're doing. No, it has to be brainless zombies. That video is totally pointless. There is absolutely no context. I suppose it would make you feel better if 80% of them told that woman to go fuck herself, and demand that she stop trying to control them.

    Breaking: New Race Announced

    This only brings one question to mind. Who gives a fuck?

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    Oh this Grand Wizard of Freaks. The dude who probably faps to pics of his toons. The guy who was called out for creating an account, using a BoV, and then spinning these bullshit tales about the good old days of Lotro. The guy looks like he spends a whole lot of time in a windowless van with bags of candy. On a side note. I don't think Cordovan even knows what constitutes a troll. Being an asshole does not make one an internet troll. Getting other people to be assholes is what makes an internet troll. Calling someone an ass kissing douche bag is not trolling someone. Getting someone else to call you an ass kissing douche bag is trolling.

    I put my money on Pontin Fuckberry.

    You know damn well that some knucklehead will request they add them to the store. People did the same thing with trait points. Then they'll have their "Due to player feedback" loophole to suckle upon.

    This is gonna hurt SSG

    You've got your wires crossed. If it entails any kind of cooperate oversight or regulation, it's the republicans who will knock it down. Dems would surely support something like this.

    64-bit gossip

    I thought I would check out the 64 bit test, but BR won't update for me. So, since I can't be arsed to figure out why, fuck em.

    And you thought the OF were bad...

    And all that subscription money going towards WoW is why that game has millions of players and Lotro has 34.

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Lotro streamers were downright dangerous for the game. There have been a couple that made an effort to improve their play, but the level of outright wrong information being disseminated is why I completely stopped watching them. You can only watch someone grind through a level 30 hobbit minstrel so many times. There was zero attempt by any of them to grow the viewership as it's the same 20 or so people watching everyday that shit on anyone with a differing opinion. God forbid you ask to see any end game or pvp content. You bring that up and you'd think you just took a dump in someone's shoe. A typical interaction goes something like this. "Hey (insert streamer name), could you show me your build for raiding, I really want to get into raiding, but I'm not sure what I should be working on first?" Typical suck ass chimes in... "I don't care about raiding or pvp." The person asking the original question then says something to the effect of "I wasn't asking you." That is followed with "You've been timed out for (insert bullshit rule)" I'm not going to even touch what goes on during a Cord stream. Some of those people could probably suck a golf ball through a garden hose. PS, Mac your voice is epic. I never thought I'd get to hear a Bond villain critique a Lotro streamer.

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Perhaps someone will start another gofundme campaign to buy a new car and house. Lord knows they're the most deserving individuals on the planet. If she were any more up Cord's ass she could tell him what he ate for breakfast. She's also ban happy and shits on everyone that has any legitimate criticism. Fuck me I'm a worthless pile of shit that contemplates cutting open a vein on the daily. Maybe I should start streaming and get myself some self-esteem. Fuck this game, and fuck anyone who still plays the damn thing. it's not worth the hard drive space on a computer.

    Moria soon on LS?

    But we'll finally be able to quest together, weeeeee!. It sucked when there were actual players and it sucks still. No game ever conceived should create absolute hatred for other people. The way MMOs work does exactly that. Running around like an idiot for hours trying to kill 20 of something and then some a-hole comes along and kills them.

    Won't work very well since the candles only last a short time. It would be like leaving bread crumbs behind you and having birds eat them after you leave.

    It's nice to know that the giant woofers in Cordovan's van/server room didn't degauss the hard drives.

    22 Hours

    I guess that makes sense. Takes an outdated piece of shit to run an outdated piece of shit. I did have an old kinmate who had some anecdotal evidence that Lotro ran better on his Windows 98 pc, than his new rig..
