    Censoring Words

    So are you up for censoring the word "faggot" from Lord of the Rings as well? Grow some thicker skin, you're part of the problem.

    FTC Will Investigate Loot Boxes

    The downside is that so many have invested so much time and effort into LotRO that the only way they'll feel good about leaving that behind is if LotRO closes, so they'll do almost anything to defend LotRO despite the flaws of the game. The great irony is that even Warframe demonstrates you can do F2P in a decent model (it's got a lot of time gating so it forces you to be somewhat casual about the entire thing, as you will be very hard pressed to grind out MR25 in anything less than a year unless you're streaming the entire thing as your job), yet doing a Warframe style F2P demands that the devs basically show you everything they're working on, including times where the community team will show some unpolished things like the hour and a half stream where the CM was hunting for a pile of poop while a bunch of devs watched the stream and died of horror from seeing a bug being demonstrated live to their fans (for those wondering, the CM did eventually find the poop and tranq the critter). Thing is, you don't necessarily need an endgame as long as you have good content utilization. That's one thing LotRO is exceedingly weak on, and basically ruined when they went to the trait trees.
  3. https://kotaku.com/the-ftc-says-it-will-investigate-loot-boxes-1830714932 So it looks like shit is about to hit the fan with loot boxes... Any ideas on the impact this will have with LotRO?

    I shouldn't be as surprised about this as I am, but wow, that's exceedingly lazy design as they didn't do a proper SoA on us >.>

    That's just sad, really. Apparently the game is irrevocably broken at this point, and no one has a clue on how to properly fix it. It's also looking like Turbine/SSG never did a pass for the mobs themselves when they did an uncapping, and left everything the same, so the Freeps get waaaay OP... while everything isn't. I take it the Legendary server also has the newer versions of GB and Helegrod?

    I dunno, if they've compromised life time accounts then that would be a way in, especially if the accounts are abandoned.

    I think a distinction needs to be made between "ranting at people" and "wholly expecting this to fail". I suspect many are in the latter here, as these servers are only going to divide and further weaken the population of the surviving servers, and likely hasten the servers towards reaching a critical low pop point where things stop working as they normally do.

    I think all the issues caused by the experienced devs leaving for better positions is coming back to bite SSG, leaving SSG with noob devs that don't have a clue how most of these systems really work - let alone balance. I mean, they're not even competent enough to make a x64 client actually work. Let the cavalcade of stupidity continue...

    I'm not sure what's more entertaining... Blizzard shooting themselves in the face with Diablo Immortal, or SSG screwing up their "premium" server XD

    Or maybe Amorey and Psalm just need to go get a room to work out the unresolved sexual tension in their relationship?

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this is the last ditch effort to pull monetization from LotRO, and also if LotRO is shuttered by the end of the decade. This just doesn't look good, and yet I doubt there's enough of the subscriber base to get back to the subscription model. Yet all of this leaves the real Achilles heel of LotRO still out there - the crippling technical and world building issues because the SSG staff is critically low. I mean, I'm not going back to LotRO unless they release a x64 client, and we all know THAT'S not happening anytime soon - if ever. You know the joke about the male feminists? That when someone declares themselves a male feminist, you can start the clock on sexual abuse/harrassement charges. Likewise, it has been observed that many of the most vocal critics of P2W are often those that pay the most. Therefore, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if several of the whales are some of the most vocal critics.

    It's cause the LotRO whales are really inflicted with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome

    That's one of the reasons why I **REALLY** like the FFXIV job system as it find a good balance between leveling an alt, while not making achieves and other things between the alts painful (as many classes share gear pools).
