    12 Year Anniversary Failure

    So, just logged in to see whats new for the Anniversary Festival and its.... 12 year box with a bell and a firework (which isnt working for some people according to chat) 5 new and ugly cosmetics (that are reskins of stuff from Helms Deep (seriously)) Thats it no New steed, no new scavenger hunt nothing..... what a fucking joke

    And you thought the OF were bad...

    But most new players dont even reach Moria oince they hit the paywalls and start seeing how the game wants to milk you they leave. Instead of focusing on a game where people want to spend money to support it (like GTA 5 Online) they want to bet there is 1 whale in every 100 new players who will drop a few hundred

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    exactly, they catered to one player because of an empty threat leaving the rest of us scratching our heads because it was an awesome idea and would have gotten me to sub to pvmp for that weekend and I am not a pvmp fan lol. But I see they are paying customers and deserve much much better not the ignorance and Middle fingers the dev team has given them for 10+ years. But again, it shows why the game turned shitty when they cater to only 1 piece of their playerbase and ignore all the others. Although I love the stages they added all over that took developer resources cause ya know, that specific kin asked for them, and those stages go unused

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Well that is exactly like the 2 years Lotro catered specific to only the music and rp groups. We got tons of stuff added for them (stages all across Middle Earth anyone) that are not even used. But hey, they were kissing major ass at the time and dropping tons of $$$ on everything in the store. Case in point, we had a rp advocate on the player council (which I know was a waste) but, during that a discussion an actual discussion with developers came up about open world pvmp in Angmar and Forochel on select event weekends. Most of us were like wow this will be amazing. You can have the warning at the zone entrances ect. One... yes ONE rp advocate started her shit about farming ore nodes and that she should not be forced into a pvmp area if she... wait for it.... chose to farm the wood or ore there that weekend. When pointed out that you can farm those mats elsewhere, she went on about being able to quest. When pointed out it would onl;y be for a select weekend here and there, she literally threw a fit and threatened to have her kin (the ones who host weatherstock) quit Lotro, the devs stopped the discussion. So, to this day, it leaves a salty taste in my mouth that 1 player was able to outweigh most of us because of her kin alliance with the music / rp group and the actual paying pvmp crowd (who have to pay to play) got completely ignored. That is when my whole opinion of this game turned to shit. On another note, we also had players on the PC who told Sapience "We dont need a tp stipend" yet were the first to take a free trip to Boston. Again, only a few.... all the ass kissers. why work when you can sit home, play Lotro and sucker other people out of money I have been muted on Cords streams multiple times by those streamers whom he had mod the official stream. Yeah that shows the incompitance of SSG that the official stream is modded by players and not an actual employee, so of course it is easily abused. When I bought this up on the forums a few months back, Cord literally attacked me and called me a liar in so many words, that I was never muted. Of course the thread was closed before I could post the screencaps of it. That is when Cord began his witch hunt against me. I called out his "gang" and it offended him. It lead to my ban. Shows who really pulls the strings at SSG. Oh and btw, I was attacked by one of those mods in the official anniversary stream because my name won a rng roll for a prize and they literally told me they were not going to award it because I called them out on the forums. They gave me the prize (a ghost bear code) but once again left me salty as shit. It is sad that after years of dedication and love for the game, I look at the icon in my games folder (yeah moved it off the desktop for more relevant shit) that it gives me a salty hateful feeling looking at it. I am the same way with certain streamers. When I decide to invest in a game, I do watch a few streams and check them out. If streamers seem like assholes or seem like they dont know what they are doing, that reflects on the community for me and pushes me away from the game.

    64-bit gossip

    What they also fail to mention is majority of people on the LS are lifetime account holders and NOT paying a dime. Of course you do have the kiss ass whales like you know who, whom are dropping ever dime on LP to get those new waste o money packs they are releasing just to appease their Tolkien Derangement Syndrome

    Same, when I read about the rollbacks on some accounts, I patched my game and logged in. Was alone in Winterhome (the festival map) and was bouncing between 80fps and 30 fps. Also skill lag when healing (was a mini) and of course this is on a new gaming PC that runs Shadow of War in Ultra High so yeah

    Yep, I call it Tolkien Derangement Syndrome bwaaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Is this a fucking joke..... oh yeah and people apparently are still missing shit.
  9. 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.

    Be Virtuous!

    exactly., all the leaps and bounds shouts $$$$ Generator to me. The simple way would be to simply do a deed and choose the virtue to add the point.
  15. TheKickman

    Be Virtuous!

    Here is how I see it panning out Low level virtues will be easy to acquire because you know 100 virtue XP = 1 virtue level at low levels As you gain levels and go past say Moria the virtue XP needed to level them grows whilst you remain only gaining that 100 XP for instance rank 6 of a virtue may cost 200XP than rank 7 will be 250XP They will add virtue deed tomes in the store that will increase virtue XP as well as letting you simply tier them up By the time you reach Gondor, virtues will cost roughly 2000 or more of the XP yet you still only gain 100 per completed deed Of course there will be a massive "Ooops we did not think about that" where people who paid previously for virtues will have their virtue levels decreased as well as those who farmed them. For instance my main has almost every virtue 3-5 levels over cap. I would bet that once this change comes, I will be knocked down below cap for "reasons" There will be an outcry on the forums about people losing virtues they paid for ect. and the shills like Maartena will defend the change claiming "they can change the game anytime ect. ect." While this is going on, they add mithril coins to kinships and are deflecting attention away from upcoming LI fuck up I mean overhaul Just the way I see things happening..... of course the shills are all excited about Minas Morgul which I dont know how in hell they are going to do a full expansion of unless we head to Nurn as well (which frankly I would love to see as that is my favorite area in Both Shadows games). But, we are heading to the Vales next and I can not wait to see how they screw that up. Just my opinions on how I think this will play out.

    The Elusive Producer's Letter

    Its just burying their heads in the sand in ways to defend. It has become so freaking laughable I cringe just reading the OF and honestly am glad I have been banned because I do not want to be associated with the lunacy and mental olympics those shills go through on a daily basis.

    The Elusive Producer's Letter

    I am the same. I find myself forcing myself to log in because my friend calls and wants me to play for a couple hours. She is one of those who is addicted and can not let go. She has tried but always comes back playing hours a day and since she is a lifetimer she is loving the LS to the point she is begging me to pay to play over there with her. I feel bad when I tell her NO because we have become best of friends through LOTRO and call each other daily ect. But because I barely touch the game anymore our friendship took a hit because she is always on. I have moved onto other games and she can not. All is life I guess.

    The Elusive Producer's Letter

    I dont think they are going to remove, just lessen the amounts like they did in later content.... they will most likely increase kill counts again as well so they sell more deed accels in the store. But yeah I can see for instance you get 140 doing a ered luin run, that will probably drop to like 60-70 per run. It is sad, and even people on the OF are starting to see through this bullshit. But hey, my best friend is still defending everything. More and more makes me think like some of yall said, that most of the shills are employees on personal accounts.
  19. TheKickman

    The Elusive Producer's Letter

    How I read this letter Dear Shills: You are falling for my bullshit as usual so here we go. We may do some content this year, not sure when but Vales and Mionas Miorgul let me mention those so your panties knot up. 64 Bit client... see we promised, it will be in beta (where of course, we will not use feedback and release it broken as shit) sometimes soon maybe March, but seriously,. who knows. Oooh look, the marketing team saw a dip in virtue sales after Mordor, so we are going to revamp them to sucker you out of more $$$ and completely screw up the system making it an absolute clusterfuck. But do not worry, you will be able to defend it with the points I will personally deliver to you. And of course Crafting... we found another way to milk you of $$$ so get those wallets ready And hey why we are at it, lets do that for Kinships to! We will also continue Class Balance, in other words, completely fucking up classes by developers who can not even get out of the starter zone. Time to give those hunters shields, staffs and Heavy Armor, and time for Captains to finally be able to teleport entire armies 3 feet away from where they previously were. We also plan to add a mithril coin icon to every skill with a cooldown so you can pay to bypass it. Hey look, we are busy trying to figure out ways to monetize this turd, so we are just going to scale older content up another tier, cause ya know... raiders need something to do.. I hope you enjoyed my bullshit. Thanks for defending LOTRO. Your Pal... Sev. Yep, thats how I read this laughable lump of shit Also taking bets now, since they are rodoing virtues (and mention deeds) Who wants to bet LP is taken off all basic deeds or lowered dramitically?

    Has anybody seen this?

    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
  21. TheKickman

    Has anybody seen this?

    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
  22. TheKickman

    Has anybody seen this?

    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
