    Censoring Words

    Can we not use the word faggot, if possible? I'm all for free speech, but when I see grown adults using that word I freely admit it triggers me. I'm not trying to derail the thread, but I've noticed it being used with more frequency (and not just by our moderator). I'm genuinely asking. Thanks.

    Censoring Words

    You're right, I was clearly asking too much of you. My sincere apologies.

    Censoring Words

    I never said gay people are the only ones to ever suffer injustice and violence. They are, however, a select minority of people who have and continue to suffer injustice and violence simply because they are gay. That point can't even be argued. To even equate that with "No, they get beaten up sometimes just because they were standing there" is just you being disingenuous. You've pulled this shtick before over the years when people have politely asked you to tone your shit down--and that was before you were a moderator. And you always raise the freedom of speech/censorship banner like you are on some fucking crusade. At the end of the day, you just want a space where you can be a dick with no consequences and anytime someone threatens that or, god forbid, ask for a little bit of civility, you cry foul.

    Censoring Words

    You're purposely missing the point. This is ridiculous, you've wasted your time creating a separate thread for this. I fully support your right to act like a 12 year old child and call other grown adults faggots. Carry on.

    Censoring Words

    Yeah, but straight people don't get beaten up simply because they are straight. There aren't places in the world right now where people are getting killed simply for being straight. But you know all of that.

    Censoring Words

    Look, I'm not some SJW trying to come here and limit free speech. I'm one of a small number of people who comes to this forum who finds that word offensive. No intelligent person is going to honestly argue how that word has been/is primarily used--no matter how many CK Louis videos you post. There is nothing to debate. If me asking another grown man to not use the word faggot in this space is too much to ask, then I have no problem not posting here anymore. Your call.

    Censoring Words

    @Almagnus1What the fuck are you talking about? If it's actually come to the point that grown adults can't have a discussion or share opinions and one of them politely say "hey, I'd prefer you not use that word in a derogatory manner around me" and it not explode into some ridiculous diatribe about free speech and censorship then fuck it. Context is all good, but if the word is still being used to insult, the intent is still there. You don't get to apply your own meaning to the word and act oblivious to the history behind it's use. Well, you can if you want to come across as ignorant. I find it funny that Doro posted a clip from Louis C.K. because it reminded me of a scene I saw while watching his TV show when he asked one of his gay friends if it bothers him when he uses the word on stage:

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    Are you still able to log into the game? I only ask because when I got banned from the forum by Cordovan he also flipped a switch on the game side. In the end, not a big loss. If anything, it was actually good to make a clean (ish) break

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    ...how anyone saw that trailer and decided it was the best product to promote the first expansion in years...#speechless.
  10. if you look a bit further into his tweets, he wasn't very happy with forced overtime due to failure of management. question is, was he referring to Severlin or Daybreak (who, imo, is clearly pulling the strings at SSG)

    Questions asked and answered

    hmm, looks like SSG lost one of their lead designers...

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    @kickman, it's probably for the best to be honest. the forum has become an apologist playground anyway (example: maartena) I'm surprised it took them this long to ban Hurin as he has long been a vocal critic of their business model.
  13. This and the DDO package...Daybreak must really need the extra cash

    FTC Will Investigate Loot Boxes

    Full disclosure, I hate loot-boxes. Even further, I hate how the actual content devs spend time creating in LOTRO pushes you in not so subtle ways to use loot-boxes with (now) store-only bought keys. And spare me the yeah, but you don't *need* to do x, y and z. If it wasn't meant to be utilized, it wouldn't be in the bloody game. For every person that whines, but SSG needs to make money so the loot-boxes have to stay because there is no other way to keep the game alive, I point them to FFXIV and it's subscription based model. People don't seem to realize that a loot-box driven game actually equates to less content being developed (for that particular game) on a regular basis. Meanwhile, the "legendary" servers are all smoke and mirrors. Anything to distract from the shit show that is the current end-game experience. SSG won't budge on loot-boxes until they are forced to by law. The game needs an enema. The developers...even MoL, sold their souls to the devil long ago I'm afraid.

    Legendary™ Servers

    This assertion is backed up by many player-number-quotes presented by players on the official forum from their home servers. What does it say about the current level cap end-game that the majority of people would rather play a different version (well, not really) of the game?

    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.

    Legendary™ Servers

    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).

    Legendary™ Servers

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

    Legendary™ Servers

    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

    Legendary™ Servers

    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.
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. the only silver lining to that, is that it's being done by the same folks that handle Warframe.
