Lord of the rings online
…was offline yet again. Maintenace should have been up to 10:00 Eastern time, then extended to 14:00 Eastern Time (well, 21:00 in Lithuania). And by some 16:00 Eastern time (midnight in Lithuania) maintenance was not complete. There were angry posts in forums, but a thread got soon closed by Turbine.
A pity. Turbine should realise that admitting mistake is not always a bad thing. If your maintenance is going to last up to 18:00 Eastern time, just state it. No time for forums – no problem, twitter/facebook it. Meanwhile in the forums there are many facts by other players aboud bad side of Downgrade 13: first age symbols almost non-dropping (tens of raids, no symbol), quests/instances impossible to finish even at lvl.95 – and no response from Turbine. They should roll back to the situation before Downgrade 13 untill it is too late.
I found myself in strange situation: having 2 other MMORPGs, I had nothing to play. Istaria is old and I have forgotten too many things there. Age of Conan is new, has my big-chested toon…but it is a harsh world, almost nothing easy, one-shot.
Meanwhile account things – I have purchased 6 trait/class/virtue slots. Each for 71 Turbine points.
Total paid:426 TPs.
Formal value: 570 TPs
Savings: 144 TPs.
Now I have to wait for other discounts, like riding skill, shared/simple vault, additional inventory slots. Even if there are no realistic discounts, I already hade riding skill form my StormSong for free.
And so the day has ended with no gaming.
