Streamer "Awesomeness"

Recommended Posts

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?

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

Druidsfired? I can't say I was some all seeing, knowing omnipotent overseer pulling strings to create these events you post here. But ya... Druidsfired fits the playbill for the theater show.

If I get this right, Druidsfired is on an, all out full trash parade on SSG's OF stream?

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.

The fucked up reality of Druidsfired, is she and her cohorts, are the first players in game and the forums to call others trolls. I say this truth, as a current relevant. All the while, these same types do anything and everything to suggest and coerce SSG to allow them to exist in a MMO, creating echo chambers of malignant cancerous niches. All to support and fortify their fucked up illusions of societal acceptance. To me the perfect karmic exchange would be to have them all live with Severlin. 👍

 

 

Where/how do they get the point and title codes? I ask because, at some point in Druidsfired sad existence, it might occur to her she can sell them on RMT sites for real cash to the RMTers.

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]

So DF has been removed from the Cord of the Rings stream?  It's about time.  I don't have a problem with poor players streaming for sheer entertainment value.  Sometimes it can be fun to watch someone derp around.  Cord is terrible at the game, and having her hanging from his sack every week was stupid.  He should have been matched up with players that are knowledgable and skilled.  Chromite would have made a good fit.  That dude knows his shit and I had been in a kinship with him for some time, he's also funny.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Maybe  thread about how the wardrobe limit has been exploited. It is sorta logical the quota limits for any part of the shared transfer process should be universally applied. What does it matter the item. Embers, other barter currency, or cosmetics. All of which can be earned or in some fashion acquired with cash.

I can't comprehend how or why Turbine, and SSG always manage to back themselves into a corner where no remedy offers 100% satisfaction or accountability.

 

For 5 years now LotRO has pumped out cosmetics. For 5 years using storage space as the bottleneck. Players find a way to expand the bottleneck and SSG lets it happen. Knowing full well of the ongoing exploit. Was it Embers the tipping point? I don't think so. I'd say once the unintended usage was revealed, SSG let it go. Hoping to bait the whole community to see it as accepted usage. Now its gone full on stoopid, SSG is gonna find a way to monetize it. Shared storage transfers 495LP d;)b

It's fairly easy. Let's say you have a toon on Arkenstone, and your wardrobe has 409/270 items in it. Technically, you can't put anything in the wardrobe, but you have a nice, shiny new pair of pants that you want to keep as a cosmetic.

Well, transfer your account shared item (for free) to Landroval. Now your wardrobe is 0/270, and you can put those pants in it.

The your transfer (for free) your account shared items back to Arkenstone. Now your wardrobe has 410/270 items in it.

I paid to transfer a Warg two years ago and sent a bunch of stuff with it. That's about my extent of the shared transfer actions. I was very unwilling to trash my main's wallet just to hoard items. As far as Embers accumulation. I had about 300 hundred pieces of gear in alt storage. That is plenty on top of the wallet Ember cap. Embers became so easy to get, I was giving away malleables to friends every week for months. Two Malleables equaled 9k Embers. Had I an army of capped alts, they would have all had top gear and essence just by casually raiding in the evenings.

I'd laugh, if I ever seen Druidsfired closet. As in game as in life. A hoarder is a hoarder.

During the server merger when the new transfer mechanism was introduced Wardrobe was copied as opposed to moved. Unless they changed it afterwards, a common storage transfer won't empty the wardrobe on the source server, you'd need to do it manually.

That tidbit aside, it's obvious the likes of the prime subject of this thread used the overflow as an exploit. They should have limited the free account storage transfer to being from closed servers only. Not that I care. The harder the gambling racketeers are exploited and robbed off potential revenue the more they deserve it.

I didn't realize that. I only ever transferred everything to Ark during the server merge.

One of the things I hate about LOTRO is that it doesn't offer the ability to move or delete items in bulk. I would love to select multiple items to drop in a vault or simply delete. Even if I had to confirm the action, it would be worth it.

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.

As afterwards became the norm, it was nowhere to be found in any official documentation. Somebody noticed it, posted about it, the EP confirmed it.

So many true QoL stuff as you mention have been missing. They added mass relic combination shortly before I left, for instance.

I used quite a bit of my VIP TP on Wardrobe through the years. Always favoured nice quest/landscape drops from the older and better areas over the -mostly- crap they released exclusively as cosmetic.

Your last sentence couldn't be truer. Cosmetic weapons anyone? They claimed for years that it was technically impossible. In Turbine/DB talk that means we can't be arsed enough to work it out. Though lately, from what I deduce from lurking on the OF, I suspect there's nobody left on board who is technically savy enough. Re: Floaty names bug and their claim of not being able to reproduce it.

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.

I loved my shields too. Different ones on the two Kibis on Landy and Crick :) And yes, getting over the clipping with either the cloak or gloves was troublesome. (Changed the gauntlets on Crick to fit the Orthanc shield.)

RedPanda translation: We can't give you more because you will always want more. Currently the code has its current limit. It's technical, you know. In the future, it may change once we've milked you, of the current limit. Then we can afford the time to extend the limit again. Since we SSG do dumb things, the shared transfer is closed, until we can wait you all out and then increase the volume in a way that benefits our revenue cash stream.

Summary: Our new caps will wipe out your ill earned gains then we will allow you to gain them again. For cash, of course.

I kept crafted shields for many years where I applied dye to them. Until About a year ago, I still had two in storage unbound. Other than those two, my Minstrel didn't really hold onto shields long. I could readily gain any I had from the past.

With no one fun to follow on the OF, time for a DF laugh. Two day old stream:-

Valared Guard seeking mats for a first age belt. Well the ore and shards. She has zero resources and moans she has these things on Landy. I have seen that wallet and it's slim pickings there too.

Seems she took more welfare payments than she should and they want some back. Setup for another fund ME ME ME?

The exploiting of shared storage and wardrobe limits with transfers more an "exploit" NOT what those bad people do when they exploit.

She did show us the massive carry-all bags that DDO has and the ability to craft from their crafter bag.

120 hunter never imbued the bow, the threat down legacy choice... like she could ever pull aggro of someone else? Not 120 valared, maybe a 105, as stats are PM 70k Crit 82k Rep panel shows a hell of a lot of Neutrals. It's looks like she has only one character who has actually reached 120 without some kind of valar a champ with woeful ILI and better off using off-hands (and didn't even use in the last stream I watched, choosing to use the LI with less than half the dps stat).

Not sure she will have the brains to figure out to buy this fix my IL pack but she seems oblivious to her financial situation. She still has no idea how weak all her character are. Every char she has at 120 will need two of them.

Here we go, she's showing us the Landy shared storage...

Lots of crap but not much. 173 gold on the main, again all neutral reps with the odd acquaintance. And Emerald shards, none there either. The AH on landy has them at 50g for two, my server it's 120g for one, and she doesn't have the cash. The 24 Seals would indicate she's never found a use for the Marks and Meds before, unexpectedly healthy.

 

So two hours of streaming, got some ore and some scholar mats and didn't even get around to making the ingots. I've seen some of her crafter characters, she often will only craft half way in every tier so never gets to open the crit up. All tiers half arsed.

 

No, not pay to win. Very much pay to loose. No amount of money can fix this.
