    Has anybody seen this?

    TIL LOTRO was literally developed, coded and maintained in the dark. Explains quite a bit.
  2. That's precisely what games like Marvel Heroes Online and Clone Wars Adventures did to its players. Transformers Universe didn't even launch before they pulled that shit.
  3. LOTRO has been in maintenance mode for years. Consider all of the content released since then that is still in alpha testing (Beornings), flat-out doesn't work (raids), has been all-but-abandoned (PvMP), is pay-to-win (lootboxes), or caters to easily-entertained casuals (festivals). Not to mention four critically panned expansions (Siege of Mirkwood, Riders of Rohan, Helm's Deep, Mordor), downsizing, downsizing, downsizing, and the whole "parent companies are owned by Russian oligarchs, except they're not, except they are, except whew no one cares about this anymore" scandal... At this point, the only thing keeping the lights on is the little coven of whales pouring their entire trust funds into lootbox keys.

    The Missing 2019 Producer Letter & Severlin?

    A direct answer from Cordovan? Not bloody likely. hypothetical scenario: Q: Hey Cordovan, does Severlin still work for SSG? A: I've worked with Severlin for many years, and throughout he has proven to be the consummate professional. Through his efforts we have achieved untold success in developing one of the most profound, exciting and culturally relevant games in the industry. There are many exciting additions to our next update, be sure to check the store frequently. If you have any further questions, please direct them to one of our salaried white knights on the official forums.

    No plans for PVMP on LS

    Questions asked and answered

    Hell with that. I'd swim on pure principle. That's how it was originally designed anyway, until entitled brats whined.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    The unspoken line is when you demonstrate how certain individuals on the OF seem to go above and beyond the call of duty to defend a game studio who don't even play the games they're trying to develop. That's when they call it a "personal attack." And also when you tell the megalomaniac community relations manager to go **** himself. (totally worth it, by the way)

    Recent downtime

    Still down when I type www.lotrocommunity.com. This account has been suspended. Either the domain has been overused, or the reseller ran out of resources. In order to get here and see this thread, I had to do a Google search for lotrocommunity.com and click on a random forum post.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

  13. See this followup? https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?670029-Quest-Objectives-missing-after-18Dec2018-patch Look who's right there with their head up Cordovan's ass, asking leading questions that only a manipulative social engineer reading from a script would be asking.

    Camelot Unchained (DAoC 2) building video + intro

    So is this vaporware? DAOC was supposed to go F2P several weeks ago, and that still hasn't happened. Haven't heard a thing about the sequel in months.
  15. Congrats to the dozens of LOTRO players out there who have been literally alpha testing a premium class for years. Now good luck with your beta testing...
