I had assumed he was actually working on some of that stuff in his sig as opposed to babysitting all the kids who can't play nice

ZOMG Quarion is alive, where was Tolero hiding you? She wants your job, doesn't she?

Well, this throws my conspiracy theory out the window, now I need a new one...hmm...

Ooh... Mod 7 is in QA? Does that mean Risia will soon get Monks?

I mean, Vote Turbine.

Congrats! I'm imagining a lot of this is due to the LOTRO fans but among MMO developers I've had contact with Turbine is usualy the most open, honest and reasonable which goes a long way. You can't make everyone happy of course but it seems like you've managed to get the lions share.

It also looks like you are going to trounce Harmonix.

Seriously, the answer was a no brainer when Harmonix was the final competitor. They don't even do GH3, and DDO alone was better than the company's combined offerings.


So, Tolero let Q out JUST long enough to post that.

Now Q, back in your Developer's cage you! *Whips* There're MONKS to release! *Whips harder*

FYI - CA Website Inspector marks Escapist as high risk because it hides its ownership. Don't know if that will slow people down or not, but I figured it was worth mentioning...

Turbine is still in the lead, but Harmonix has gone up 4%. In ten minutes.

If you haven't voted yet, go register and show Turbine some love!

While I found the competition interesting (yes I voted, suprisingly I had a login w/ The Escapist before that I had forgotten about yet never posted in their forums), I found the flame wars amusing and rather childish, honestly I keep hearing about how good the LOTRO community is, but I didn't see it demonstrated here, nor usually when I go to their forums.

Congarts Turbine, but I must say some of the fans make me shake my head.
