  1. It's been a long time coming, and admirable that you were willing to keep it going this long, MueR. You put the effort in when no one else did, and while I can't afford anything right now, your paypal is in mind for if/when I can as a thank you. Also, thanks to those who signed up, those who shared stuff, those who we've lost and those who have lost. Fucking troopers, the lot of ya. I recently got back into "playing" LotRO as a distraction from real-life circumstances, but there isn't really anything in-game that's worth discussing. Things are bugged as always, there's massive delays between finishing an instance and being able to hand in the quest, content is a repetitive grind, there's a massive gulf between the content kins can do (T3+ raids/instances) and what pugs can viably do, PvP is so out of date that there's old loot from L100 content dropping and freeps can't even use Audacity, lazy placeholder art that hasn't been updated in years, gold spammers avoiding ignore functions, etc. It's tiresome and infinitely trodden ground. And if we want to talk about something other than the game, the available topics are more often than not depressing and inherently divisive that just cause more unnecessary bickering. There was a time where I would've enjoyed it, but when it's against a backdrop of nothing else and the clown world as it is, it just feels like exacerbating things. Even I'm getting brought down by it all if I spend too long online. So it makes complete sense to end things while they're already quiet. It's been emotional, cunts.
  2. I hope she's filing proper tax returns. It would be a shame if the IRS took an interest in all this free income.
  3. It's the gift that never stops giving. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-55642101 A new impeachment possible to keep his shady, incompetent ass out of office forever.
  4. Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!
  5. Save it from what? The site never mentions it being destroyed.
  6. They're claiming to have 2022 pinpointed as the time when LotRO gets an "upgrade", so if they last that long get ready to see an absolute shitstorm as bugs upon bugs appear.
  7. Considering Trump is now lying to the degree that it's impacting social order (with roughly 70% of Republicans in some polls claiming they believe there was voting fraud despite no evidence having ever been presented to a judge in any of the many cases Trump had his cronies open as a distraction), is that enough to have more legal consequences against him when he's finally dragged out by his hair? It's obvious he's doing it to cause unrest and squeeze some cash out of idiot donors who think he's going to put funds he's begged for into recounts, so surely the law has to step in at some point, right?
  8. For those who haven't been glued to this chaos, allow me to give a quick rundown of a few of my highlights so far: - Trump calls the election WAAAAAAY too early, thinking he's won because the map on Fox News was initially red when only a fraction of votes had been counted, and his fragile ego couldn't take anything to the contrary - Wisconsin and Michigan flip to blue after the mail-ins are included, taking Biden up to a comfy 264 EC votes out of the needed 270 to win, triggering Trump and his fanatics - Trump gets his unelected, unqualified son to have a tantrum on TV about voter fraud in Pennsylvania, saying they're going to sue them, despite it being red and STILL being red as I type this (89% counted), so I guess they know something we don't about how fragile their current grip on that state is - Trump genuinely says he's going to take it to the Supreme Court and wants to stop counting votes right now (good ol' democracy, eh?) because he would have won if they hadn't counted after a certain point, and he knows more postal ballots are coming that will rub salt in the wound for him - Everyone is watching Nevada, as a quarter of votes are still left to process but right now Biden is in the lead and will get the 6 EC votes he needs to win - Georgia is 98% counted and only 0.4% in favour of Trump so far, but Biden only needs about 60% of the remaining ballots to win it, which is likely since they're mail-in ballots and have so far proven to be heavily democrat friendly ("I told all my voters not to use mail-in, why aren't I getting any mail-ins? REEEEEEEEEEEE!" - Tiny Trump) - Still unfinished, but it's fairly safe right now to say Biden has won (without some sudden trickery being pulled): possibly the most hated US president of all time; the big loser, he's the best at losing, knows more about losing than anyone; twitchy Donald J. Trump has been defeated by someone he painted as a sleepy old man that doesn't know where he is.
  9. I saw some cunt over there say this: "I hate the term 'whale', but with six active accounts (including lifetime), each with ultimate editions of previous expansions..." Why the fuck would anyone need SIX accounts? All with ultimate editions of expansions that were end-game content, implying each account is filled with end-game characters as well. There's multi-boxing, and then there's playing with yourself, so I suppose LotRO whales are used to masturbatory acts.
  10. I had a quick look over some of the complaints over there and I'm amazed how far these idiots have to go to seeing what LotRO really is. They're complaining about costs or lack of content, but in the same breath praising the developers for all their "amazing work". You mean that amazing work you're complaining about them not providing? The constantly bugged content? The abandoned features? The "kill x of y" quests copy and pasted? The lazy re-skinning of cosmetics? That's what the devs have been making. What imaginary world are they living in where there's a parallel LotRO with incredible content, when the complaints are about how bad the monetisation for barely any reward has gotten?
  11. Ha! I like that when the question of self-respect comes into play, the sycophant immediately shows they have none and can't possibly understand what it is, confusing it for respect in general. That's some high-quality self-loathing on display. Good little wallet bitch, keep shovelling in that disposable income most have better use for in their life.
  12. I hope he dies. There's very few people in the world that would make it better by not being here, but he's definitely one of them. But we know he won't. He'll get top-of-the-line care that none of the people that died were given, he'll slog his already dying, unhealthy ass through it, and if he wins he'll get his poisonous little nepotistic family to run the country for him so he can spend his time attached to an oxygen tank and his Twitter feed, or if he loses he'll "retire" and be looking at all the ways he can avoid getting prison time (probably by claiming health reasons, similar to his excuse for not being drafted like those other suckers).
  13. Did anyone bother to watch the "debate"? I couldn't bring myself to sit through Playground Dementia 101, but I've heard it was as pointless and embarrassing as I thought it would be.
  14. 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.
  15. You're welcome! https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?670737-New-Class-Dunedain-Ranger&p=7909869#post7909869 And all those pearl-clutchers over there were acting like a Brawler would be impossible.
  16. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54257450 "Prince Harry urges US citizens to 'reject hate speech' and vote in the presidential election" Does this count as foreign "hacking" of an election, or is it only limited to memes on Facebook?
  17. I don't know what to make of this. I'm seeing people treating it like it's some historic event, but it's just some studios being bought. Happens all the time.
  18. 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. And they just keep going! "Please sir, can I have another slap across the face?"

    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.
  21. 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.
  22. Sounds like you need to contact support so they can kill and properly resurrect your zombie character. Put in a ticket in-game.
