  1. Lotrostream: Druidsfire is making Jerry a kilt. Except with no sporran and pockets instead she's just made him a skirt. She is wearing the trousers ofc. Oh the watcher is doing one damage, who'd have known that?
  2. If everyone had half the morale, like when these raids were new that bleed might be something, especially on a prolonged fight as they ramped up. But with freedom to pick any gear and not be restricted to the radiance only gear then as well as having far more morale and mits you have far more damage potential so no chance for that mechanic of the fight to come into play. Obviously the Watcher Bellow and reset was someone at SSG fumbling around without a clue.
  3. The morons at SSG have taken the Watcher and Turtle raids offline on the LSs to fix issues. They can't grasp that the issues have been in place since Helm's Deep.
  4. If a Lotro sub means not hearing the details of Trump's bedroom shenanigans then sign me up. I was wondering if the Lotr Licence was in danger if they'd admitted the closer tie with Daybreak. Jack Emmert as Sev's boss might actually be concerned how badly Lotro is being served atm. Mac

    Has anybody seen this?

    On the face of it and in isolation it might have heralded a much needed new direction by SSG. It was just a day or two later that it came out that their lead content designer had left. The only polishing still apparent is that of the turd that is SSG. Problem remains that they just don't know the game they have because they don't play it. Moria has just hit and the content can't cope.

    I think my days were numbered when I suggested that Cordovan had a "tell" when he was lying on the stream. But then I thought I was on borrow time after dropping QuartermasterU in it on the Mordor announcement stream. It's not the idea that they have been found out but that they have been seen to be caught out that is telling. Otherwise they can keep up the self-denial ad nauseam. Mac

    RE: Aylwen It was good to have another read and compare with what we see of the state of affairs at SSG now. You can just switch Sapience for Cordovan, the Padawan is now the Master. A shame we don't have the gen on the interim years but no sign of having learnt from this critic. If anything it's even worse and compounded with the DDOites running/ruining the game now. RE: Octothorpe I looked at his twitter history and a while before he went he comes across as having had enough. Cordovan also came out with a question for the players on the live stream days before asking us if we'd prefer to have the anvil raid before Christmas as is the usual practice or wait until it's more polished after the holiday? Ofc we all said polished, given the usual track record. He was suspiciously casual about it and it was quite unprecedented, we are never consulted, it's always before the holiday. As soon as Dr O's change of circumstances became evident the penny dropped. In my mind this was a blow to SSG.

    Moria soon on LS?

    Hello, my name is Mac and I did just watch the Friday live stream video. The landscape/instances designed to cater for characters with a third of the strength they can have now. Instance mechanics broken by trait trees and threat changes. It can only be for the abject failures the first time around who sucked so much they never got a group to take them along. The last two years of reused content shows no sign of any "once overs" or play throughs. One thought that did amuse me is that Dwinstrel, if he ever had a thought concerning build or gearing, will finally get access to the OP Loth jewels sets and be over level to use them. Ofc he'd have to find the barter npcs and that's not a given. Cord is not willing to share any initial feedback on the 64-bit client currently on Palantir. No kidding! Mac Edit: if you hang out with an LM or hunter a pet or trap is ideal for tagging the mob you need, at least you have open tapping and failing that tabbing and going into auto ranged attack should be as fast as a mini or hunter skill firing.

    I believe DDO doesn't have the huge persistent world of Lotro. We have issues crossing boundaries in the open world that maybe not so evident in DDO where they are dealing with instanced spaces far more. Maybe the engine is tuned for DDO?

    Moria soon on LS?

    The candles are to drop as you go through Moria so you don't get lost. SSG must think only a moron is going to fall for their LS scam so they need to provide additional help or peeps will never find Lothlorien. Mind you it'll likely turn out to be the means of lagging out raid bosses as everyone in the raid drops candles and freezes the server. But please don't tell me every numpty with a few bucks is going to be /emoting "You shall not pass" from the back of their bloody hobby horse. Good Grief! Mac

    Who owns Lord of the Rings Online?

    I have not. I know it gets messy. Besides it can be explained away by the prospective new publisher offering to setup the LLC on behalf of the soon to be ex-Turbine employees. But what value did WB put on DDO and Lotro and who paid that cost? If you are stuck between the WB and Daybreak Lawyer are you going "win" that contest? Or just be grateful to have a job? You get shafted, so you shaft the next one down in the food chain. Those of you who haven't played for a couple of years may not have witnessed the progression toward pay to play.

    Who owns Lord of the Rings Online?

    Yeah I had that thought about 20 mins after I posted, only just got back. At least no one is arguing that it's a Californian Dentist who's in charge at SSG like I'd get on the OF.

    I checked the accounts page. My main account looks complete but one f2p account is missing an expac, that's after Cord piped up that everything should be fine after the re-restart. Even back in AC days you'd never risk logging in on patch day, think I'll go back to six nations rugby and some more biathlon for a while longer.

    Sadly they didn't roll back my OF ban. The forums are the same polar opposites as usual but they really don't want to unleash you guys back into the fray. I'm not sure I want to login just yet. Obviously plenty of fuel for some banter later on. Yup the comp for a lifer is a pile of poo. What am I going to do delay my flight to Switzerland another thee days? You'd think that however long the downtime was that they would actually try the servers out for a bit with their own characters first. The game is awash with exp and this forms much of the package. What numpty wants to rush to the endgame grind/money pit? Someone moaned about lifers getting 72000 free LP over the 12 years, that's about ONE fully maxed Imbued LI via the store route.
