Is this Viznak the Goblin in Arganaith? I guess he has aspirations to be a king. He wears a crown. I just ran into him in Minas Morgul yesterday from a quest bestowal at Echad Uial or however its spelled. It was an odd quest that seemed out of place. I imagine he is there because players commented how much they liked the npc from Mordor questing.

What was that one?

Viznak is just a washed up second hand Gollum and a stellar example of the bland tripe MadeofLions gets praised for at the OF. Uninspired fanfic which in better days would never have been allowed into print. The guy is the king of lack of continuity and loose ends. How many Gandalfs are currently in game waiting for him to pick up one of his inane subplots?

I'm so happy you all like Viznak! Deekin definitely was an inspiration for the character, along with some Gollum.

The VO Actor was Darren Altman, who also played Samwise!

Their slap-in-the-face-insulting "Thank you gift" code has already expired.

They can't do ANYTHING right. It's just one cock-up after another.

I cannot wait to see the VIP tears flow when they find out they're only being compensated for 5 days and fewer TPs than they could have farmed themselves in an hour (if they could log in and actually play).

SSG continually shits in the whales' mouths, yet the whales eagerly thank them for it and ask for more.

I 100% agree with this. The game used to be praised for it's faithfulness to the lore. Now it's just the case of how much bullshit can they put in the game with every update.

I'm surprised they even fixed it. The problem is that most of the whales won't even complain, and those few sensible people that are still playing the game can't cause too much of a backlash on the OF, because there's so few of them even bothered to post anything. So eventually everything dies down and the shit fest continues as per usual.

Yeah. Sort of a Smeagol version. You're supposed to have a soft spot for the dumb-as-nails little goblin. Fits in well in a Pathfinder RPG setting. I even had a goblin like him in my own D&D LotR campaign. But lore-break for sure.

These players cannot resist the call to be used and abused. The funny part is they pay SSG for the let down.

https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?682064-What-is-the-point

Seven pages of BR feedback and discussion.

Not ONE developer or Blue name response. If we exclude Vastin's comments surrounding Bombadil, the last time we genuinely had a blue name interact on the bullroarer threads was two middling responses to the upcoming RK changes back before the release of U25 ALMOST a year ago now, and before then, who knows? I don't have the patience anymore to look further back.

AND YOU HAVE STILL GONE AHEAD WITH THINGS IN THE UPCOMING PATCH THAT THE COMMUNITY HAVE VERY OPENLY VOICED THEIR OPPOSITION TO.

Why do we bother posting? You clearly don't read it, or wilfully ignore it.

Has it ever occurred to any of you to let this train wreck, on its own?

Surprisingly there's more responses that agree with the OP, at least that's the impression that I got when scrolling down through replies. I guess the wind's changing somewhat.

They'll figure it out eventually. Every person has a limit, it's just the matter of tolerance. For me, this whole shit fest with servers feels like Déjà vu of late 2013. The only difference is that now even the ultimate fanboys have a hard time making up excuses and are actually begining to realise that the game's 3/4 of the way down the drain and that there's actually no point in trying. The most hillarious thing in that thread is (if I understood correctly), that EVEN Arnenna admits that she stopped posting on BR for the exact same reasons that the OP stated...

For me, it's just a big bowl of shame and sadness to see my once favourite game go from great to absolute shit.
