    Of course it is not 64 bit. There is no change to the game code. They were only cutting up server expenses.

    Thought so, but am I being obtuse or you can’t reduce from 60 to 80%? Maybe they’re also reducing salaries for everyone involved at the mess. From 60,000 to 80,000 😖

    “Legendary Story XP has been reduced from 60% of normal to 80% of normal through Wednesday, March 13th.” WTF does that even mean?

    It’s sickening to read the comments at Twitter. People thanking SSG for fixing a 3 day downtime caused by their own inoperancy - and one that no one but their shareholders asked for. Junkie slaves them all. EDIT: as expected, no explanation at all. Maybe they need five or six months for it to be translated.

    I like the way you think.

    Apparently it’s people who changed it during the last 3 months and new players who is affected. I changed mine Nov I think and can log in the OF just right. I purchased a quest pack (off deeds LPs) a couple weeks ago, that’s the first thing I’ll check once back in the game. Not that I care much for it, but that would prove that the DB was tampered with.

    I cannot remember them giving a technical explanation for any of their past migration fuck ups, and contrary to what the gullible morons at Twitter say, there’s been a few. Same here & now.

    Looks like they lost the players database and restored an outdated version (at least 3 months old according to reports). Now they’re frantically trying to find the most recent backup which of course they forgot to save before downtime. Hopefully they still have the old servers available and will be able to extract it from them, but I wouldn’t place a dollar. There’s no way that this is due to physical migration. If they just moved the racks, no data loss would have happened. So they swapped servers / systems without telling, you guess if they were upgrading or downgrading. If they are unable to dump and restore their old tables, they will probably say, “OK guys due to unforeseen circunstances we lost some of your stuff during migration, deal with it”. Some players will leave, but many others are so used to abuse that they’ll send cookies and will happily keep paying their subs from their leaked CCs.

    Not a single positive comment with this last update. They’re sinking like a stone. It’s ALMOST painful. And they simply don’t have the budget for the kind of PR needed to clear this mess. Maybe WB could have, but there’s no way the current publisher is going to invest on them. Last nail time. Maybe they moved the datacenter to Venezuela? There’s been power outages since Wednesday 😅

    Just 50 minutes left for their latest ETA... Will they have the balls to announce yet another one or will they try to sneak past it all and into the weekend?

    The best part of this will be when the servers are back and those delusional players start hallucinating about non-existant improvements. “Look at these clouds” “Pretty butterflies!” “Those 64 bits sure feel good” Last night there was a user at Twitter https://mobile.twitter.com/bluemarble1012 who was being very accurate in multiple tweets about SSGs complete inability to deal with this situation. Today, her Twitter account is restricted so her tweets can’t be read at Lotros twitter stream. Coincidental? Probably, but sure smells fishy. I’d bet Cordoban or others reported her.

    Funny how one of the most vocal critics at Twitter has had her account restricted... First they edit a post and then this. Cordoban sure casts a long shadow 😂.

    Why would they be required to simply swap rooms? Of course they are downgrading the hardware. My guess is that they aimed too low, so performance was so abysmal that even shills would complain, and they are now re-evaluating how low can they go without the fanbois noticing. That would imply lengthy negotiations with the publisher and much number crunching, hence the delay. I don’t think they’ll be able to open the game until next week.

    I think that it was way longer when they migrated the EU servers from Codemasters. Can’t tell for sure and can’t be bothered to google it either. What puzzles me is that people seem genuinely surprised about the delay. Every time they put their hands on the hardware they blow it spectacular. It really shows that they are too small and too inexperienced to run this operation. Not to mention too cheap to pay someone who actually knows what they’re doing. I wonder why the Tolkiens don’t rush and remove their megamillion license from them. Yet the sycophants keep wowing them. Great work they say. If they went to Starbucks for a coffee and the barista pissed into their cups, they would be thanking them for the extra sugar.

    Nope, no forums, no website either. It's amazing that they don't diversify these. Keeping everything under the same roof is a recipe for trouble.
