  1. I like what Warframe does: Here's a quest that's free, all you need to do is meet the ingame prereqs (which are generally prior quests and occasionally Solar system progress). Granted, if LotRO could pull off a FULLY VOICE ACTED quest complete with mocap and proper facial animation, then maybe I'd let it slide that they only have ~20 quests (if that) in the game.
  2. If that's been true, DDO has been getting a ton of updates at LotRO's expense. I wonder if it's actually the other way around.
  3. It's really kinda sad, IMO. That's another reason why I had stopped playing, as I will generally work towards being well geared, but Turbine/SSG has made it so that being well geared took far too long, and you were stupidly OP to the point of one-shotting mobs on landscape when you were that well geared, which trivialized the landscape content. Throw in repeated issues with kin stability mostly caused by others walking away from the game (can't do group content if the kin count keeps dropping), and it's just a recipe for burnout...especially when your server was once one of the big three North American ones. There's other stuff too (including one of the most outrageous things I have ever seen in an MMO which directly leads to me being in a Ramble On video during ROI). I'm hoping that someone with the license shutters this thing once the other LotR MMO goes online, as perhaps that announcement is really just a warning shot from the license holders on how badly SSG has screwed the pooch on this one..
  4. In the FFXIV style of things, this would be an end of expansion event where you've already gone through several instances JUST TO GET TO THAT POINT with large amounts of MSQ quests tying the narrative together. Stuff like this is why I'm glad I parked at Minas Tirith awaiting crash resolution all those years ago. As the x64 client is vaporware, at least I'll not have the destruction of the ring ruined for me.
  5. Yeah, I'm honestly not surprised they went along for the ride. We've had illegals in the US do the same thing for many decades (truth be told, they've prolly been doing it since we got the territory from Mexico about two centuries ago we just couldn't detect it then). Truth be told, I hope that in the next century the West and other super powers can finally stop using countries as pawns in foreign policies, and we can start lifting the shithole countries out of their shitholes. Granted, if we don't stop the progressive trying to revert the West in the name of "progress", it will all be for naught.

    Possible LotRO GDPR Violation

    I can guarantee that at least one of the tech titans takes GDPR very seriously, despite being a US company. As far as SSG would go, as they are non-compliant that could mean a really hefty fine from the EU for them. As long as they are willing to at least show us the data and then allow us to selectively delete it, that would be fine... it's just I"m not keen on a company having my data without disclosing what all they have - regardless who they are.
  8. The entire email kerfuffle that LotRO did recently (where a bunch of lifers were emailed that their subs had expired) got me thinking: SSG is not disclosing, nor letting us remove any credit cards that are associated with LotRO from outside of the game. That's quite possibly an EU GDPR violation. Any thoughts?

    Barrow-downs death magic?

    Were you getting a ton of dread? Also, were you getting an AoE DoT from something?
  10. Has there been any splash damage from the executive order on SSG?

    SJWs v Coders

    For any of us that really 💔 SJWs and all the trouble they make... they're trying to go after open source projects... It's interesting, but I have a feeling this isn't going to play out like the SJWs think it will...

    Well that's not good

    Apparently there's starting to be more threads like https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?667266-Server-malfunction appear on the OF. That's definitely not a good sign for the health of LotRO, as once server stability goes, the game becomes literally unplayable.

    Has anyone ever beaten the quest "Fishy. Very Fishy."?

    Did we ever figure out if the horseshoe wasn't just at troll, or actually something useful? I'm leaning towards a very well done troll at this point.

    The Ultimate Ban Hammer

    Y'know... if they banned at that rate, the LotRO OF would be quite desolate.
