    lol I got a forum infraction when that trailer was released for saying something along the lines of Apparently that was harassing the dev team lol, apparently the truth is harassment

    Oh no doubt, What I was getting at is that they know it is going to be a shitshow, they know they are under the crunch so why even bothering giving a shit when its gonna be messeed up anyway due to management failures. I worked for a jcompany that did crunches like that and honestly, we didn't give a shit, why, because no matter how hard we did things, it was always wrong. So we gave up caring. Thats all I meant

    Not defending Turbine or SSG but Warner is a company that likes to muck things up in all aspects. Look at how poorly the DCEU is handled on filmand WB recutting films days before release. A lot of those film had potential but Warner had to change things like they always do. I think its a company glitch Now with that said... their is zero reason for SSG to be screwing up this bad other than they don't give a shit

    The Missing 2019 Producer Letter & Severlin?

    I was saying this kind of stuff on the main forums and of course the dissenters disagreed because it ruined their image of what LOTRO should be. The 2 remaining members of my kin being lifetimers mostly hang out on Ithil which I refuse to pay for, so now IF I log into the game at all, even running basic stuff means a pug and frankly I am worn out of holding peoples hands in even the basic types of runs like School or Library. As you said, everything they do now is a push top the store, content is designed to get you to pay. Hell even on the Legendary servers they "decreased experience gains" to as they said "let you enjoy the leveling process and explore the old areas again" that, was total bullshit, it was done, so people would head to the store and buy experience tomes (which they did) and oh reputation, they decreased drop rates for rep items silently, so now people are buying reputation tomes ( because of course they increased the rate at the skirm camps to push even more people to the store) Now they are talking about revamping the LI system and I have a feeling something is going to come when the :LS hits Moria in the next month and of course, it will be a store push. My sister whom hasn't played in a couple years logged in recently to maybe get involved again. She called me asking why she sees these coin incons everywhere asking for Mithril and how she could farm them. When I explained it was a store item, she logged off and deleted the game. Lotro has always been run by a company that plans for short term gains. I have never seen anything developed for this game with the long term in mind. It is always about get the $$$ quick with each update. Look at how rep was handled in the wastes. People farmed it for a few days... they saw a decrease in reputation tomes, so removed rep drops. Same with Ashable items in Mordor forcing people to lootbox keys. It is sad and pathetic. No one has ever said Lotro doesnt need to make money all we have said over the years is do it honestly. The LS is at least sort of honest, until they started forcing store pushes into it as mentioned above. But hey, we all know this and I doubt it is going to change. So I wait to see how the new LOTR MMO will be and if WB and Monolith ever make a 3rd Shadows game. As far as the shit comment, I have honestly told some of the white knights on the forums that they could literally hand them a bag of flaming dog shit and the white knights would say it was the greatest dog shit ever

    Another Attempt to Bump the Login Numbers...

    and the joke keeps going, now the events are even bugged. This game has really turned into a steaming pile of shit

    No plans for PVMP on LS

    yep. that is what they do and now Cord will have you in his sights because you butthurt one of his shills But, the LS are doing so good, they play STO (which btw they are a known asshole there too and mostly ignored by the community) Yeah it has become a sad place. As a new player looking for a Tolkien game, the obvious kiss ass shills would scare me away from it on the forums, let alone how bad the game itself has become. I have not logged in since before Christmas and honestly, I do not miss it at all. Never got my main through the new area because it was a boring buggy mess, and than to top it off, got a new gamin PC that had me run Lotro in almost the same graphics settings as my 4 year old laptop because well lotro. Now I finally get all the rubberbanding while mounted and crashes in MT area. Yep. quality game right there, and the x64 is another Lotro lie Edit: Sorry I have not been reading or posting here as much, my Father recently had a stroke, he is doing good and actually came home today but still has a lot of work to do.
  10. Howdy guys, I have been a lurker here for ages just never made an account until today. Most of you know me from the original forums. Looks like my days there are done as Cord has banned myself and a couple others (Hurin) is one, over this thread https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?668041-New-quot-Legendary-quot-server-fails His reasoning for giving me a permaban was for fighting. I created a alt account and sent a PM asking fighting with who because one of the white knights had created a sock puppet named MoveOnPal and spent days attacking me on a personal level. Apparently, that is allowed, but putting that on ignore and not replying to it gets you a permaban. I am seriously not kidding. Go check the last few pages of that thread, I go out of my way to ignore the sock puppet account and yet, I get banned. So as I said I sent a PM and the reply was So, even though I did not retaliate, I was still banned. As of yesterday I had 1 infraction point. So I went from 1 point to permaban in 1 day. Looks like we are heading into Helms Deep forum territory where white knights derail threads, harrass, attack, create sock puppets ect and the people who yes I will admit sometimes I am rude to some of those posters, but I am honest with how I feel about the game, get away with murder and myself and other who speak truthfully are being removed. What is hysterical is that the point I already had was a joke in itself for fighting with Maartena in that same thread. I have my suspicions on who the troll account is that got me, Hurin and a couple others banned but do not want to name names without proof which I will most likely never have. They got their laugh. They got the people they wanted banned and Cordovan fell for it hook line and sinker. Anyways just thought I would give you all a laugh.

    No plans for PVMP on LS

    at this rate you will not see any post on the OF because that list right there is basically all who post now. Just be cautious though, having them on ignore is all good, but they will be replying to you in attempts to bait you. When they see you are not interacting with them (like I did with the sock puppet) they will cry to their overlord and pick apart every post you have made in attempts to get you re-banned

    No plans for PVMP on LS

    that thread is so funny. Kinda makes me glad I can not post because I would be linking every ass kissers hypocrisy all over the place. I especially love how someone called out Marrtena about his hunter / lm story and showed how Marrtena was the one being the asshole in the situation. Almost made me choke on the mint I was eating lol. Anyways, that entire thread is people with legit issues and the white knights saying if you don't play my way go somewhere else. It is sad to see such a great award winning community fall into a hand full of these self righteous idiots

    Questions asked and answered

    LOL, they will butcher all of the classes to make them more appealing to the explorer crowd. You know, the ones who like to run around Middle Earth looking at scenery and do not care about quest, raids or Pvmp. They may rp or do music but who cares, they buy lootbox keys to get shiny armor so they dont have to run shit
  14. TheKickman

    New Raid

    yeah I loved when they raised the cost of rep accels in the skirm camp it was because "they wanted to adjust the prices based on the scale of how many marks we were getting." Than next update boom, mark gains lowered... than next update BOOM area with 6 tiers of rep instead of 4. And of course when the raised the skirm camp prices a few of us called it, and were silenced by the white knights.... you know, those same ones who asked for them to be lowered on the LS because the prices are ridiculous
  15. ^^^ The people that suffer from Tolkien Derangement Syndrome and need to be in Middle Earth or their reality collapses
  16. TheKickman

    New Raid

    they added the rep items to the skirmish camp for barely any mark cost (I believe when we were level 85) and getting marks was so easy at that point with the erebor raids which were 5 minute runs that we were swimming in marks and medallions. So you could hit the skirm camp and get max rep with all the starter zones and moria netting 500 points. I did it once in a blue moon for an easy hit of marks, and yes a few people abused the system netting a few thousand points but instead of punishing those players they changed the item levels of rep items, so now for instance, you do quest in the shire and get a mathom, you have to wait until level 20 to turn it in. It was not a big change, but it showed how fast they changed it when they noticed people gaining quickly because of their own oversight. I mean come on, common sense would tell you people would do that. But they do not think past what they are looking at. Turbine and SSG have always been a short term goal company., I have never seen anything from them that could possibly be long term planning. They use PR spin to make it seem they have stuff planned but they are just doing shit at the seat of their pants. Case in point, Minis Morgul was promised to come after Mordor. But oh well, we will do that later cause we got "plans" for it. Bullcrap. They saw a short term goal of taking people north, changing lootbox keys ect. Now when people are leveled up and using gear without Light on it, than they will release Minas Morgul and oh wait... you will need light again, but do not worry, here is a lootbox. It is is the only long term plan they have and it is to push lootbox sales. What is sad is, I recently have been playing Shadows of War, and in the game you see Minis Ithil fall into Minas Morgul and you can be in Minas Morgul for a bit and I was like wow, if only Lotro could design a place like this it would be amazing. But we will probably get just a bunch of landmasses around with spiders and orcs and a big castle you cant enter, and a Shelob raid which is like the Turtle in Moria reskinned..... if the game makes it that far. I hoped to one day see the scouring of the shire, but the roleplayers have already had fits about that so we probably will never see it unless its a session play Oh well, just venting. I know things will never change.

    New Raid

    Yes they have since launch of those areas. But as I farm LP (when I want something from the store because I am no longer willing to pay SSG out of my pocket there are much better titles that deserve my money) I see more and more people doing it. Recently (maybe a week or two ago) I was actually running a kin mate through a LP run (she was farming for a steed) and there had to be 5-6 other peeps farming. Now, that does not sound like much, but considering a year ago if we saw another player it was a omg moment. When I farmed for the newest QP it was insane (maybe around 20 or so peeps per run) so new content upped the amount of people farming. So much like they altered the rep items in the skirm camp because it was being abused (and from what I understood) by only a few people, I can see them removing LP completely from deeds (especially in the starter zones) to stop the (as of right now) few of us who farm the LP.

    New Raid

    And the joke is... they do not care one last ounce. They charged people (who arent paying a sub) 2000 points for the questpack (because it included this raid) so they got the money from people who subbed and people who paid for the LP to buy it outright (content unsees albeit) and than released total junk not worth the money. Than they close it and expect paying customers to be happy. This is stuff predatory companies do, and I now consider SSG like that. So no more cash from me (hell I even got this QP this way) Ill just grind points (and I bet they are gonna cut that cord soon as more people are begining to do it (especially to get keys)) so wait and watch as tp (or lp) is removed from deeds and only given on meta deeds or some crap....

    New Raid

    the same trend continues and the same people abuse the system......

    Burgs are not happy with lies and ignorance

    and this trend will continue until the last 25 or so die hards will be crying in the shire the day the servers close wondering where things went wrong and what they could have done to prevent it.... completely missing all of the people who had been speaking out for years and they (and the CMs) silenced on the forums and in game. The game is now the game it's players deserve. They let it happen and kept coming back. It is pure Tolkien Derangement Syndrome (aka LOTRO Stockholm Syndrome)
  21. TheKickman

    Burgs are not happy with lies and ignorance

    It might lead them away from Lotro
  22. Yeah that bothered me because a dev had mentioned a while back that they had been looking forward to that for years and had it planned since the begining of the game and it was not going to be a simple session play but something we have never seen before.... only to have it come out and it be just a simple session play with a cutscene of gollum falling. It felt really anticlimatic and something that could have been an epic cutscene mixed with various gameplay types was just at least to me ignored so they could focus more on the p2w side of things with Mordor. Than you had the blatant lies and false advertising about the High Elf Class, the liues about Ash gear dropping on landscape (which they even discussed in the preview livestream" than claimed it was unintended (after they showed us during that stream how it worked with landscape gear using terms such as "you will want to venture more into the darker corners to find better gear and you can ash the old gear or duplicates you get" and a lot of the community saw through it. Ontop of that you had Cordoban make his monkeys that stream moderators on the official stream and has honestly had streams where he barely talks but some chick speaks loudly as if she works for them. It is sad to see how far that game fell. I am currently playing Shadows of War and yes even though it shits all over some of the lore, the gameplay and graphics are amazing. Their stories in Mordor (such as Carnans arc) would have been something cool in Lotro. But they just dropped the ball. I love how people still are waiting for the 64 bit client though. It isn't happening. If it does, I will be truly surprised but I doubt it.

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    Congrats. Hope the fanbois dont create sock puppets to get you banned
  24. TheKickman

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    Yep, stupid shit, like asking for an extra slot because using the tortoise stone takes up the pocket..... like losing the 15 points of a stat hurts them with the overpowered trait trees. These players would be content if the lotro devs just released the map with no mobs and quests to find shit or run pies. They dont want to play a LOTRO game, they want to play in Middle Earth

    Happy New Year
