    Legendary™ Servers

    Yikes, those numbers are bad. And it's only week 2.

    Legendary™ Servers

    I wasn't referring to anyone specifically on this forum with that statement. If anything it was more me, stepping back for a second, and realizing I had gone a wee bit crazy with the vitriol. Especially since it has nothing to do with me as I haven't played the game in ages.

    I think it's cool that people are enjoying it. It's a bit crazy to rant against people for having fun at something--even if I have no interest in doing it. As an observation...the pace of leveling a character--that is something we, as players, can control. We can also control how far we want to level (level caps, etc.) The "race" to level cap or gear to grind is often a self-imposed issue. It shouldn't take a company to create a sub only server with a server imposed level cap to make that happen. I think we, as players, are just lazy so we are willing to pay someone to create that environment for us instead of doing it on our own (all the tools to do so already exist).

    best part, GM confirmed in-game that there were just over 1,600 online...not even near 4,000

    They are releasing this Legendary...can we just start calling it Lackluster now? Anywhoo...they are releasing this madness, meanwhile it looks like one person is in charge of fixing...well, everything? https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?668439-What-did-you-do-Vastin&p=7884626&posted=1#post7884626

    It's clear they are doing this for the extra $$. Maybe the loot-boxes aren't bringing enough revenue in. Plus, it's being done on the cheap. The CM did a livestream and confirmed it's literally a copy and paste from what we see now on the live servers, just with a server forced level cap. There is nothing "classic", "legendary" or "prime" about this. It's a typical Turbine/SSG move.
  7. Per Severlin, "We absolutely want to reward players who are awesome enough to support the long-term success of the game by opening lootboxes, and get joy in doing it, but we don't want players to feel like they are forced to open lootboxes in order to play or excel in the game." Awesome=whales. And then there is this convoluted mess: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?666721-End-Game-Loot-Lootboxes-Update-23-and-Beyond&p=7867073#post7867073
  8. If you actually take a step back and look at it (i.e. read between the lines), this is worse than when Mordor launched. But, of course, people won't realize it until the update launches and they are knee deep in it.
  9. the only silver lining to that, is that it's being done by the same folks that handle Warframe.

    Update 23

    @cossieuk all I see is a bunch of re-used assets in the new areas. Also, SSG is expanding it's loot-box pox even further--check the BR forums for a brief taste. I've never seen a game troll what little players they have left with such careless abandon. Long live the whales that keep this game afloat.
  11. 1. he's not telling you to do something you haven't already done, so what is the issue? 2. so that just means you have something in common with him. again, what is the issue? 3. 21st century sensibilities?? ...you live alone, don't you?

    The Latest Debacle

    The "community" gets what it deserves. Maybe if they had spoken up louder when the loot-boxes were introduced with the Mordor expansion...it's pretty silly to feign outrage now.
  13. That is a big "if", and even so...it's not something I would necessarily be proud of. On the first raid, you had to lower your graphics drastically just to get through it (which, by today's standards, is unacceptable), the second one was released bugged as hell and almost a whole 4 months after the expansion was launched. But, Doro is right...the whales have been and are continuing to keep this ship afloat. The trend now is "well, at least they are doing this..." There are too many better games out there to resign yourself to that type of mentality.
  14. Say what you will, but I give kudos to the folks @Massively for continuing to run with this story and providing updates. It could have very well fallen under the radar.
