  1. Turbine has always banned people for being AFK and leaving their pets on aggressive to kill. They consider this unattended gameplay. If you don't respond to a GM within about 30 seconds they haul you off to the jail or ban your account. If you're at the keyboard, no problem - if you're not, big problem. I agree with that if you have to leave and take care of other things, log off. You character will pop right back up there when you come back, so no travel time lost.
  2. Nah, because then everybody who didn't salute and say "All is well" would be banned from the OF. They need to hear the shit people are saying, especially since even many of the Turbine-kissers are complaining now.
  3. I am fairly certain that is already the plan in place.
  4. You underestimate the depth of the hole they have their heads stuck into. And to quote Animal House, "All is well... All is well!!!!"
  5. No, Dump_giver, the game isn't fine. It hasn't been fine in a long time. The mere fact that you don't have to max out your LI's to do everything in the game is one clear indicator that it's not fine. There should be content you have to strive for, and clearly Turbine lost track of any past employee that was able to balance, well, anything. They fired everyone capable of debugging content - quests, instances, raids, pretty much anything. Scaling is off-the-charts bad for most things, especially in BBs and PvMP, and in PvMP it's a real disgrace because they charge money for the access. The new PvMP map is a joke and even the players who were in favor of it are unhappy. The game isn't closing servers because they're fine. They're closing servers because they've lost too many players to leave them open and fool anybody about their lack of success.
  6. Over 2 hours so far. Can't log in game, no email. I did get access back to the OF almost immediately though. Yay?
  7. I set up my E toons to come to Gladden about 10 minutes ago. We'll see how long I'm locked out. Happy trails indeed lol.
  8. I immediately took it to mean the HD shit storm. What's really sad is in beta many of us told Sapience that this would be a shit storm and he replied they expected it to cause some drama for a couple weeks on the forum and die down. They had no idea (and didn't believe) that we were giving them the same reaction that the live players gave when it went to open beta and actual release. I've seen this reaction on other issues, where it seemed at the time Sapience "summarized" estimated player reactions and opinions to the rest of the devs, and in many cases he was wrong. "We thought you didn't like X, we had no idea you really liked that a lot but it was the grind that you hated." Or Sapience specifically saying the devs didn't have to read the forums, HE read them. That was about when Paiz was on her way out (or shortly thereafter) and I put a lot of the blame for the fubar decisions squarely on the shoulders of those two people. Yes, I think that was as close to an admission of "we fucked up" as we're ever going to get. Sadly though and unlike radiance, they'll never undo the change.
  9. I did go look and my credit card info has been cleared as well, which is interesting.
  10. Turbine's downside to less full servers is they believe people DON'T want that. That's why they claim they're closing, so people feel they're on vibrant full servers. I bring all this up because they have recently bragged how wonderful their servers are and how they can handle the entire lotro population on basically one server each for US and EU. I think they're blowing smoke out their ass, but if it's true they should open Brandywine up to transfer immediately and not wait to "see how the load goes". Otherwise they're tacitly admitting they're full of shit. Again.
  11. But that sort of cancels out the ability to "choose" where you want to go. For the US we have 1 we can't transfer to (Brandywine), 1 RP server that I don't see people who don't RP transferring to, so basically you choose between 3 servers. The EU isn't any better because they have language limitations to guide where they go. Narrowing it from 29 servers to 10 automatically makes all worlds more populous. But if there are people who seriously want to transfer to Brandywine I think they should be able to - especially since Turbine has made it clear that their new servers should handle any and all comers.
  12. If in fact the whole population could be handle on just 2 servers, why is Brandy off the transfer table? If the new server is so fabulous people should be able to transfer to Brandy. After all, if we only had 2 servers the load would be much bigger than Brandywine has right now.
  13. There may be single server setups able to handle many times LOTRO's current population, but I am skeptical that Turbine either owns it or can operate it effectively. What ESO or WoW or anybody else does really is immaterial - if we did everything they did we'd have seen regular expansion packs with more content including multi-player raids. What we got were patches and mini areas and crap they talked about that never works as intended. So you're saying the game engine is crap and has to be split up? Or the population is small enough for one server? Because I'm not quite sure which party line you're spouting. Since Turbine had said for years they wouldn't be merging servers, and to me closing servers is basically the same thing, I think this was a huge step in their admission they fucked up and a ton of people left just like we'd all been claiming and they'd been denying. Spin it any way you want, they haven't said anything to change my mind and their little "it could fit on two servers" merely enforces that in my opinion.
  14. In the beginning Frelorn seemed like he would be an improvement, but he seems to be sliding into the bad decisions and habits of those who messed up before him. I agree it's amateur and that anyone whose job is communication should be doing better at it. This was a poor choice, both in words and saying it at all.
