    Radhruin is gonna be shitting out bent rusty nails. The howling will be excruciatingly loud from him if indeed a new Brawler class introduction is approaching.

    Always fun to see that waste of flesh spat at in the face with every new update that doesn't give two shits about his misplaced arrogance. Boars were good, but Brawlers? Wtf I love SSG now. If they could add flying mounts now, I might just be convinced to actually give them money for it.

    - We will have boar mounts

    Hahaha! Good, I hope it gives that arrogant, boring, uptight cunt Radsomething the aneurysm he deserves.

     

    Edit: holy fuck, the responses in that thread are hilarious.

    SSG is so lucky they have loyal idiots like me to keep feeding them money.

    I think the boar mount will only be in the Ultimate Edition and thats the reason I will buy it on day 1. biggrin.pngbiggrin.png

    I hope there is an LP version because if i buy this "Mini" pack now i wont have money to buy the actualy xpack comming next year.

    I admit I'm one of those suckers for fluff that drops big money (I even paid double ultimate for Minas Morgul coz I gave one to my fiance)... [this one at least said they won't be doing it again]

    The free play for the summer was great and I might forgive them a little for a $100 quest pack... [this one as well]

    Quote

    Been playing since beta days. Love the game and want to help to keep them in business. Yep I'm gonna shell out the $100. (flame away, I don't care)

    And they just keep going! "Please sir, can I have another slap across the face?"

  3. This one?

    From what little I saw of it, it looks like they made a Rust RPG and added some Witcher 3 and Far Cry Primal vibes. A lot of reliance on crafting, resource gathering, open world player-made structures, and potentially some sort of PvP at the end (let's hope they didn't copy Rust's level of offline-raiding, toxic PvP as well). I'd certainly give it a try under different circumstances, but the fact that it's an MMO puts me off. I can't bring myself to go through the same disappointment I did with LotRO, seeing incompetent devs release an update that kills the entire game a la Helm's Deep.

    Plus, it's Amazon, and honestly fuck Jeff Bezos.

    DBG < Colombus Nova < Renovo < Putin

    I think -though naturally can't prove- that SSG is merely a front and somewhere in between WB is also somehow involved.

    A company staffed by incompetent and unambitious bottom-feeders with extremely low cost of upkeep but devoted fans with more money than sense would make the perfect front. They're not hunting whales, they're letting automated robo-whales chuck dirty cash their way through micro-transactions, and funnelling it back out as legit funds. I can see why they'd be concerned with an interruption to this conveyor belt that's part of a larger Russian oligarch money-laundering scheme, but not giving a shit about things like lag, chat issues, or bugs.

    I'm reasonably certain Hankenstein is the third of a forum ban success story. On their third account going berserker anytime someone disagrees with them. The same moron who proposed SSG sell pvp ranks. The same who got triggered so bad they said they were rage quitting the forums only to return a few days later. They are either a teen or a brain damaged soul and possibly both. I can see Captainkissass salivating at knowing another dumbass fell into their bait troll trap. Anyway they deserve each other.

    I can't quite remember exactly, but is this that weird pedo that went mental and thinks he's married to one of his characters?

    Since before I left the game I've had a hunch that they may be feeding some shills not with real money but gambling keys or other perks of the kind. Besides, some employees might be posting under multiple aliases. (Not that there aren't enough stupid addicts to shill voluntarily and pay on top of it.) Call it a conspiracy theory but this person's -sort of- whistleblowing reminded me again:

    Ah damn it, that's where I was going wrong! I needed bad grammar, neglect of caps lock, and constant spelling mistakes. Apparently, that's the only way you're allowed to post in defence of SSG without Cordoban acting like a cunt to you.

    Oh no it's OBAMAGATE!  I wonder if the people that told him about obamagate are the same "people" that tell him about all these great and tremendous things he's doing.

    Exactly. Same blatant trick. It did make me laugh when he tried to drum up some controversy that just wasn't there, and his loyal pets lapped it straight up like it was a thing. "OBAMAGATE!" What did he do? "But no, Obamagate!" Yeah, what is it? "Obamagate though!"

    It's probably all the same "people" that tell him in his alone time that he should try the failed "not born here" conspiracy with Harris like he did with Obama.

  8. It really is something when a man responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocents and spying on millions more is able to present a more respectable and moral figure than Trump could ever hope to achieve.

     Trump is going to be the kind of nightmare tenant that clogs all the plumbing, steals the copper pipes, and takes a huge shit on the living room rug

    At this point, I'm hoping he's the kind that sprays gasoline everywhere and then forgets to leave when he lights it (true story, a drug dealer in my old neighbourhood did that after the council kicked him out of his bungalow). The idea that he'll just scurry away without any repercussions is annoying. Doesn't he also get that ex-president stuff like taxpayer-funded private security and special privileges for the rest of his life? That's 5 or 6 years of wasted resources.

  10. The narrative is slowly unravelling to the normies. Figures so far have had to be reduced because of over-estimating supposed COVID-19 deaths, because they were counting people who died from anything no matter how long after they had the virus.

    But it looks like they're taking it in baby steps to admit figures are still inflated. From now on, they'll only count deaths within 28 days of a positive lab result for the virus. Not people who have died from it, not even people who died with it but from something else. Nope, it's anyone who got a positive result and died within the month, cause of death regardless. Can't back track all at once, or people might realise they overreacted and will start questioning what really has been killing old people, i.e. government lockdowns.

    No mention of what they're doing with suspected cases or those deaths where COVID-19 is mentioned in any capacity (which seems to be a large segment, based on what I've seen so far). I'll bet they're still counting them in addition.

    Its not even really what is said. Its more how much and how many bitch to Cordoban. His only goal being the CM is to do less work as possible.

    That's even funnier, because that means even the addicted whales over there now believe it's a fact LotRO is at its worst state yet. Otherwise, why report something they should agree with? They don't know what to feel any more.

     

    And yeah, that cunt in the Skirts thread has a major ego problem. Back-seat moderation still going strong over there.

  12. Apparently you CAN go too far defending SSG/LotRO. Out of all my recent posts, apparently these ones crossed the line.

     

    https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?682139-The-Extra-Monetization-Of-Rohan-Housing-(&p=8026939#post8026939

    Someone said: "Let's just keep it to the facts, the increased monetization of this game is a clear sign of its decline, so is the overall quality. A healthy game doesnt need to charge unreasonable amounts of money for literally everything."

    I responded with: "That's not a fact, that's your opinion, and I disagree entirely."

    They then said: "This is not an opinon, numbers dont lie."

    With my response being: "Of course it's an opinion, you don't have any actual numbers beyond speculation, and speculation doesn't correlate to quality, either."

     

    Poof, both of my posts in that context gone. Theirs are still up, obviously. NO, BAD DORO, NO SAYING IT'S AN OPINION TO DISLIKE THE GAME OR THINK IT'S COLLAPSING! Seems like Cordovan acknowledges the game is shit now.

    I also lost a post made a little while after, breaking down what features the Rohan housing had in SSG's defence. I guess they admit they fucked up on the monetisation as well, it was an underhanded move to try to box people in to paying more for an advertised feature.

     

    Remember, guys, as much as you might want to defend SSG/LotRO from the truth, there are some truths that are too accurate to defend!

    ... and that free outfit is shit...

    Hey! I think it's amazing and I'm super grateful we got another outfit to discard with each new character. If you swap most of the pieces out, it's probably the best cosmetic option in the game. And it's free, with is good because SSG are so generous, but bad because I can't support them. I'll have to buy some cosmetic from the Store to show my appreciation instead. Maybe buy multiple new premium houses. Oh god, what if I don't buy enough houses and LotRO goes under?

    I don't necessarily have a problem with charging for this feature. I do have an issue with the fact that 1) they did not advertise that there would be a cost associated with the feature and 2) at 20 MC (200 LP, or roughly $2.00 USD), the cost is just too high. It should be 1-5 MC at most.

    Hey! You sound like one of those self-entitled troll whiners. Us defenders don't take kindly to that sort of talk.
