    Macron Explodes over Climate Stuff

    That's the interesting thing.... most of the world is bending the knee to China and their rape of the environment... and then they throw stones at the other countries as if they can somehow make a dent when China outnumbers almost everyone else by at least an order of magnitude.

    Macron Explodes over Climate Stuff

    You're missing the punchline to this entire joke.... the fires are really just farmers preparing their fields for sowing seeds... https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/24/world/americas/amazon-rain-forest-fire-maps.html Macron's an idiot.
  3. https://news.yahoo.com/merkel-opposes-macron-threat-block-164247790.html Funny how they don't mention the rampant polution of China and India... yet seem to focus on Brazil (which, to be fair, is warranted as deforestation of the rainforest is removing natural CO2 scrubbers). So yeah.... maybe if Trump keeps trolling hard enough, eventually he'll force the EU to collapse as it seems he's already showing the cracks between France and Germany XD
  4. From having played DDO, it was pretty clear to me that DDO got the lion's share of dev treatment, while LotRO got whatever was left over, likely cause DDO is cheaper to dev for (they control basically everything there as long as they stay compliant to the 3.5 Eberron or Forgotten Realms settings), and SSG figures LotRO will work because players are dumb enough to support a bad product because they've managed to convince a majority of them it's a Tolkein sim instead of a game, and they should help support the Tolkein sim....

    How to lose players and alienate games

    I think a lot of it is the frustration of having to deal with the Twitter rage mob cause this post sums it up pretty well: If you go through that Reddit thread you can definitely feel the dev's frustration.
  6. Back to the thread... based on population decline, when do we think we're going to see the next server mergers?
  7. So you're saying that the formation of the Lodinistan Caliphate is a good thing? Yes, but the question becomes how many servers will be
  8. IMO I can see SSG dropping Language support (like French for example), and maybe the Legendary servers to help reduce overhead. I mean, aside from shooting the legendary servers once SSG realizes that nobody wants to play them anymore, I can see Siranon (FR server) and Gladden getting the axe first.
  9. Necroing this.... So given what we've seen with the Legendary servers, does the population data back up the assumption that we'll see server merges within the next couple of years?
  10. Be thankful that you didn't, as I'm fairly certain she was part of the "I don't like you so I'm going to report you as a troll" crowd.

    Breaking: New Race Announced

    Well, explains why he's overly verbose with little substance....

    Legendary Servers = Failed Experiment?

    I think at this point LotRO (overall) is terminal. I'm surprised it's lived this long, but if (as suspected) the core is unraveling, you can't keep enough people on the servers so round 2 of server mergers are going to happen. I predict we're going to see a DE, FR, EN-EU, EU-RP, NA-RP, and NA server survive (as that's the bare minimum number of tags), and eventually FR will get dropped (because the FR community is so small comparatively). #NotSurprised

    Breaking: New Race Announced

    I never quite got that far in LotRO, as I had made it into Minas Tirith... started playing again... and then Shadowbringers hit and now I really don't have a desire to go play shit tier stories in an MMO after experiencing a really, really well done one.

    Breaking: New Race Announced

    The funny thing with this announcement... it just feels like a huge lore breach to the point that SSG isn't even trying to follow the lore anymore, just making it up as they go.
  15. So, now that we're starting to get into the "gotta regrind the LIs with each new level increase" and past the fun content of SoA and MoM... are the legendary servers going to become ghost towns as players lose interest?
