    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    I guess I never trusted Turbine that the stuff I was putting into the wardrobe I could throw away and still be able to use the cosmetic in future. I must have 20 slots taken up with Shields I've tanked with over the years so I was glad they added cosmetic shields. However it's so temperamental a mechanic it might take me half an hour to actually get a different shield to display correctly and consistently. .
  2. The rewards already received from the BBoM quests are still account bound, rewards still to get are bind on acquire. At least the level requirement has now been imposed. Having done the first couple of chapters on might will and agility classes I'm covering all bases if I want to level another character. Can start equipping this gear at 115. So exploit early as usual. Many others will have progressed much further, I'm level gated at level 122, and have even more gear to pass on to same stat alts. So yes late comers screwed over; have the valar to skip progression via interesting quest lines and get dumped into a pure scroll grind or further store purchases. ILIs they get done by someone only 50% through ranking the new virtue. As for the crafting, seems like it's the engineer looking to be made redundant and sabotaging it, SSG too stubborn or poor to cut their losses. Or just in complete denial. Mac

    Can we expect anything else when it's SSG use of underhand practices that engenders in the player a similar mindset. I have a 20 slot wardrobe. I maybe have 18 of those items sitting in a vault somewhere so it's not my thing. I have the shared storage at 120 slots and only a few chars spending LP on the vault, max 150 slots on Macdui and 120 on alt mains (gold only cost) a couple at 135, cook included. Still 20 off maxing my pack space. i don't need addons to tell me where stuff is because I have guild craft/storage alts organised. And DF bought out all the slots in shared and wardrobe and still not enough for her. And really not earned anything of much worth in game in any case to keep. Red Panda stated recently that there were technical limits to upping the current max slots available, but when you see these streamers over capping many of these various storage mechanisms I have to wonder the truth in that. I'd have a guess that DDO had it's version of the Carry-all at that time (or in the works) and it was a bigger earner than more vault slots. When the marketing guy or community manage starts talking about technical stuff it's all crap they've been fed to pass on.

    ILI on a mini - she streamed doing ILIs on a guardian. Bought another valar or applied a second expac to the account? Red-line Weapon came out with a blue-line exclusive trait, LOL. She and Elda still clueless that the dps stat has no bearing on their damage as a tactical class. Good grief she's valared a rune-keeper too. The mini was 120 to start, not sure about this RK. Literally paying to win. But ofc still an additional $150 per ILI to fix them and max out from the store MC. She isn't going to grind MT rep and spend the next three years doing dailies. RK has got 93 trait point. That's real fucked up! And another ILI with an off tree exclusive trait legacy. Beached Whale. She is still moaning about gifting Cord two 1st age symbols and some SoEs. [Was an attempt to draw sympathy on stream a few weeks ago, the "look what I do for him?". Company account free LP beyond the collected muppets understanding. ] She was also moaning about her wardrobe being stuck on the wrong server. We get to see this wardrobe finally. It's standing at 409/270. [Oh no ofc she couldn't possibly think she's exploiting the hell out of the system. Would love to see SSG destroy the extra 139 random cosmetics over the cap. Cheating fuckers] The free giveaway done and some advice for the recipient: "I wouldn't recommend someone boosting their character if they didn't understand their class" [No shit Sherlock!] Her plan it to go way and research these three valared classes so she can figure out what legacies are needed. [I don't think there any guides for half-arsed players out there though.] MiddleEarthMaden snipes in with the $50 and wins the second Collectors and Ultimate will go to the biggest identifiable donator over all at the end of the drive, not including the $200 current top, declined. End P.S. Amazingly the whole 3 hour stream was an inventory management exercise, the winner of the raffle, collector ed, dozed off and only woke hearing his name.

    I didn't follow through on my thoughts, couldn't take watching another stream last night. I have just checked the donations from last night: MiddleEarthMaden $50 and Elda $40 I'm assuming for a $130 and $80 package they don't need. Maybe a give away coming in their streams soon. But be forewarned, before watching the former check your meds are within easy reach. No change of strategy employed? [EDIT: dropped to $25 min for a collector and another collector free giveaway later?] I'm confused For accuracy I better pull the video later and see how thick the heartstrings were yanked. To add salt into any wounds WaywardPlane got an anon $400 donation to place second to Cord for donations taken. Padawan becomes/beats the Master. Ouch. Mac

    If I had bought the $40 pack I'd have less time to cast my eye on what's she's up to. I have until Tuesday to figure out the implications of donating $100 and giving the code to Ballie to then thank DF on the forums and the wellbeing of the Cincinnati children ofc. Trump must wonder about hitting that big red button too. Mac

    Still clinging on to moderator so the OF streams will have the same bunch of ill-informed players actively shutting down comments and question they consider inappropriate. Except she might now want to have the CM come under fire a bit more. Still believes he'll never amount to much, which is still debatable, once the shackles are off.

    And still no donations registering during the stream, followers seem to be tapped out. So there is an Ultimate and a Collector edition up for grabs on her Tuesday show. This minimum $50 has totally screwed her. Can she actually alter her plan? The psychology shown in the repeated failing strategies in the game would suggest not. A load of small donations would get more for the charity but I'm not sure she could take giving away what $80 and $140 packages to a $20 dollar "bidder". Now the likes of Bludborn are buying big point codes because they are growing their channels and driving us the subs and have a chance at making a go of it. There are very different motivations in play here.

    Mostly the giveaways are provided by SSG/Cordovan to official streamers. Point, title and pet codes even a month's VIP. Could be SSG are more generous if they are driving something like this Extra Life or Movember charity. DF has likely actually bought the codes for the expansion to drive up her donations - before the job issue came up. Queen Bee has to win, can't have her underlings getting more contributions. Well not exactly has to win, but if she does she is going to make damn sure to remind everyone incessantly. And she'll have a reason why she was (unfairly) beaten. One comment I missed last night, well not exactly missed but it's such a common occurrence with her. The mention of an instance or raid being closed down or requiring to be patched her go to thing is to jump to "Exploiters" are the issue. Chromite did put her right in chat to say it was Not an exploit but an encounter that could not be completed within the instance. It's always very ill-informed opinion and the viewers know no better and get to believe it. She's had SSG believing she knows what the hells she's doing for two years. But even after all this she's still intent to carryon on, in her own small way, maybe help others to moderate the Cord of the Rings and stream when she can. [Still clawing on desperate to retain her influence] Mac

    It's all playing the victim for the viewer to judge for themselves, with lots of nudging. How badly she's been treated etc. The same techniques that has WaywardPayne eager to please her. Elda and another moderator doing the work behind the scenes or playing on insecurities "sisters together" against the misogynous men for another streamer. Whatever is needed. This must be the innate psychopathy at play, it can't be down to any intelligence. I guess a lot are just listening and doing something else. Elda is raffling off point codes and title codes at odd times to keep people awake.

    She really is saw about being dumped. Full of snide comments about Cordovan, this on the official channel.

    Valaring: Toon gets the full 92 trait points but several deeds to earn more are still active. Hope that gets /bugged

    Okay I'm a sucker for punishment. I pulled up the video to see what I missed at the start. Big emo start with off the Live stream/co-host position. A suggestion that her viewers could express their concerns with this move with Cord or on the forums. [Oh please do that] Playing the victim to the full. Co-worker contacted her while away to inform her that her office is closing and moving to Massachusetts of all places, apparently "Massachusetts can fall in the sea as far as she is concerned" right now. So no moving in with Cordovan. Her new company surely don't have to go to those extremes to avoid her do they? Droning on and on about I care not what atm, this is most of the problem watching this shit is it's mostly name dropping people no one thinks is important, spouting out nonsense about lotro or moaning about others who play it. All self absorbed crap the followers lap up. Ok we are up to the Charity Give away time. Now here is the link to the donations: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=381152 Before tonight the New boss had donated the highest amount $200. Anon the next at $100. There might be a delay but only $8 dollars donated today atm... and nothing during the stream as I look at it now. Cord: She is using my term for him now: "The Mouth of Sauron", plagiarist as ever. Back moaning about shared server transfers. [Odd how all the abusers of that system at whatever level don't regard themselves as exploiting a game mechanic.] Her particular gripe is shared storage, in particular cosmetics, is stuck on one server. [I really don't know if SSG has the nouce to figure out that mess and why they are dragging their heals] But how could she have anything much of value stuck when she hasn't earned much of anything playing it?

    I did take a few weeks convalescing. Apparently all her Valar ideas didn't get taken up by SSG. Unnamed but a quip at Ballie for trashing her credibility on that front. Thanks God, it's bad enough as it is. Her brilliant idea for taking kiddy donations for a middle tier expansion to the highest donation failed to reach a winner as the highest donation wasn't high enough. Yes a bit on the late side when all these muppets would have signed up weeks ago but completely scuppered it by setting a minimum of $50 donation to win. Who is going to put in a $50+ stake when these work on many peeps spending little to gain the big win.
  15. Macdui101

    Streamer "Awesomeness"

    Some of the psychopathy is leaking out. Short shrift with some helpful "suggestions". Moaning about the shared transfers being down and the fact she can't cope without it. Also saying that SSG don't want to piss HER off any more, MMO Central threat perhaps? Will she BLOW, this is compelling... Mac
