  1. 8+ hours worth though? You'd expect that amount of downtime for the rollout of a new patch or expansion, not routine maintenance.
  2. More extended downtime, with no explanation. There's definitely something to be said about a "need to know" philosophy, but surely the idiots who still sub to such a piss-poor game NEED to know why they're never able to play the game they're paying for, right?
  3. From his Twitter profile; Gamer for life! Community Manager for Standing Stone Games. NOTE: This is my personal account, and should not be used for any company-related questions. Proceeds to use his personal account for a company-related job search. That just about sums him up.
  4. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?682529-Example-communication-for-server-outages-SSG-can-use-it-as-blueprint&p=8032255#post8032255 Now to LOTRO: Cordovan Community Manager That is Cordovan's self proclaimed job title. I didn't give it to him, none of the posters here did either, he was given this title by the company he works for. So, DO YOUR GODDAMN JOB and manage the community. Talk to it, inform it, and if the lawyers (as some suggested) limit what you can say, get from them what you can say, and pass that on. What you can not do, is be a "community manager" who never talks to the community. Quality post. A shame he'll be banned for telling the truth.
  5. Has any other MMORPG ever been plagued with connectivity issues that were "beyond the control" of the Developers to fix? I know Star Wars Galaxies was torpedoed by its own developers, but that was game design, not connectivity. I can't think of any other game that went tits up for over a month the way LOTRO has.
  6. Cordovan is having a complete meltdown in this thread; https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?682529-Example-communication-for-server-outages-SSG-can-use-it-as-blueprint SO much asskissing from sycophants. But lots of dissatisfied subscribers as well, who are fed up with the lies and the bullshit. The ONLY communication from him or anyone else about whatever the Hell is going on amounts to little more than "We can't tell you what's wrong, but it's not our fault, now let me distract you with shiny new pixels you can eventually buy." It's pathetic how he's trying to act like the victim here.
  7. Oh it's definitely an act. He loves to play the victim. LOTRO has never had a good Community Manager, which is one of the chief reasons LOTRO has never had a strong community. SSG has absolutely no idea what's wrong with the servers. That's why they're so mum. That's why they're claiming it's beyond their control. That's why he's sticking with the "I can't say anything" mantra. If it were a DDoS, they could discuss that. It would be the PERFECT excuse to get them of of hot water with the subscribers. Yet it's crystal clear they don't know what the issue is, what's causing said issue, or how to alleviate the issue. He's just blowing smoke up players' asses in a bid to stall them until there are fresh developments. MY GUESS (and it's just a guess) is that it's all the result of transferring to the rock bottom lowest-bidder data center (which was highly touted as an "upgrade" during the transfer). Perhaps it was simply time to pay the check for that lie.
  8. It's obvious many of the white knights are being compensated in some form to shill for SSG. Many of them exhibit more symptoms of Stockholm Syndrome than actual kidnapping victims, and no one could purposefully be so gullible and loyal to a company that couldn't give less fucks if they genuinely tried. It HAS to be incognito SSG employees trying to gaslight the community. Stranger things are happening. /shrug
  9. If there were an emulator to run the SOA client, it would be virtually priceless. But there isn't.
  10. Dissent intensifies. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?682057-Enough-is-enough (At the time of this posting, there have been no replies. 10,000 Schrute Bucks on "If you don't like it, then leave" or "L2Read the EULA" or "I'm perfectly satisfied, so your dissatisfaction is unwarranted" as the prevailing responses, each from the usual suspects).
  11. Their slap-in-the-face-insulting "Thank you gift" code has already expired. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?682030-Thankyougift-code-expired-!-it-is-only-9-45-pm They can't do ANYTHING right. It's just one cock-up after another. I cannot wait to see the VIP tears flow when they find out they're only being compensated for 5 days and fewer TPs than they could have farmed themselves in an hour (if they could log in and actually play). SSG continually shits in the whales' mouths, yet the whales eagerly thank them for it and ask for more.
  12. Pucker pucker smooch smooch. Nothing like the great taste of corporate asshole. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?681799-This-mess-has-been-handled-so-poorly!&p=8024640#post8024640
  13. Probably straight into the pockets of Russian oligarchs. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/04/after-sanctions-daybreak-games-changes-its-tune-on-its-russian-affiliation/
  14. More and more die-hards are getting fed up; https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?681799-This-mess-has-been-handled-so-poorly!&p=8024601#post8024601 Unfortunately, they're just parroting the same concerns and gripes we've had for years. Nothing is going to change, and the trust fund whales will continue to support the game in maintenance mode, lowering the standards of gaming and dishonoring the Tolkien franchise.
