Wait a minute; what about the stuff we put there? I placed a few often used items there. So does that mean I can't use them now? Seriously....

I even thought about waiting a bit more before putting stuff in there... just in case.

But then I thought "naaah... won't happen... of course it will be stable". Oh well. I just hope we don't lose what we stored.

Not to sound like a complainer and all, but for those of us that had already put stuff in this section of the bank - will we be getting it back when the fix is in place?

I had put in several items, including a Topaz of Greater Transmutation I was going to transfer to another toon. Where is it? Why weren't we given advance notice so we could pull our stuff out?

can I get the items I have in there out please,
Kinda bad, so I can now not use them ?

Not very happy at all,, I have been defending Turbine for the release quickly, then somthing this serious is put in, yes I used the bag and had upgraded and put things in there, now i am screwed as there is at best a week wait until I can get the stuff and then that's only of they do not screw up

Ok I get closing or whatever, but why not a global announcement prior to disabling the feature for those in-game at the time using it? Would have saved us all some aggravation. And you know everyone is going to ask about their stuff they had in there. So just say it will be returned, you don't know for sure, or something right from the get-go? This is some sad PR guys, come on. You do such good work but you can really find ways to **** off your customers sometimes.

How about an in game notice beforehand, like the ones for guild level milestones ?
Just a warning that is not limited to the forum ?
Maybe even email ?
Just a day of forewarning so that people could prepare ?

Why not ?

I really do not get this.

Just Great. Having purchased the first upgrade yesterday I was working though my various toons putting all the useful stuff into the bag deposit area when they take it away. Apart from collectibles only stacking in sets of 99 it seemed to be working OK. I just hope that none of us have lost anything ....

Not sure what's going on on the business side, but you guys really need to QA these "fixes" before they're applied. If you don't have any QA testers, now's the time. If you do, they need support. If the dev's are doing their own QA, then they need more support. Having known bugs is one thing, but this patch was obviously not reviewed before it went in.

The players want to help and want this game to grow.

Tell us how we can help you do a better job.

So when was the last new major feature that worked on release? I honestly can't remember a single one over the last year or so.

Sagas were broken on release.
The anniversary card game was broken on release.
Bag Deposit Box

Seriously. This isn't how you gain and retain paying customers guys.

I am genuinely shocked and surprised that the new bag/storage feature that you introduced has a bug and/or exploit associated with it. I did not expect that in any way.

Cordovan, I just posted this and I'm seeing that the [sarcasm] font isn't functioning on the forums, either. Just wanted to let you know about that additional issue.

to be fair... "at best" would be only 4 days. he said next week, not a week from now. it's thursday. if they fix it monday... hey awesome.


still sucks that it happens, tho.

Pretty much. My first thought when I read about the new bank expansion was 'I am so not putting anything in there for at least a week.'

If you have to ask, then you haven't been paying attention. Not saying this to be mean, but come on, I am honestly not really aware of what this bag is, having rarely paid attention to new shinies until they become common-place. But whenever Turbine closes something with no explanation I guarantee you it was because of fight club. That goes double for when it relates to how items are stored and transferred. Its like a zero day ritual on updates/patches for some people to test what new or old wonderful ways of crashing the game economy can be found when mis-using item storage.

Step 1) Provide extra storage for collectables/ingredients
Step 2) Get dupers to trust said storage and use it
Step 3) "Accidentally" remove said storage temporarily some point in the future and possibly remove dupe items.
Step 4) Profit!


CALLED IT! WHAHAHAHA

Minus the glaring fact that nothing can ever be released without a test pass.

Last time on Lam, I saw no issues with the tab minus not being able to hold everything I placed in it. I was able to put more than 99 of something in it though. Wonder what the bug was (not on known issues, so must be an exploit).

I just wish we'd have had some warning. I noticed that the bag deposit had pulled 45 items from my greensteel bag when I put it in the bank. I didn't have time to mess with it, so I was going to reproduce and report today. Now I'm stuck, and I didn't even intend to use the thing for a while.

Of course it was a "feature"

People that exploit log in and check the new stuff against features.... At least they fixed duping by turning off the entire crafting system

Oh I've been paying attention and my question was meant to be snarky.... and I didn't take your response to be mean.

They took an already bad UI system and made it worse to fix a problem that their fix didn't fix (assuming the real reason it was disabled)..... priceless.

I learned a long time ago that using cheat codes in games ruined the experience so the whole duping thing isn't something that appeals to me personally. The fact that people did it was mildly annoying, but didn't ruin the game experience for me. Sure it screws up the economy, but I've never been one to buy items anyway. Now that Turbine is making poor design decisions to try and stop duping is changing the game for the worse.

Start over on the whole inventory UI. It is FUBAR.

Lol. I am left speechless by the way Turbine runs its business. With each update you guys rush out the door, the bugs are more game breaking. All though this game is marketed as F2P, for many of us it isn't. I for one pay a monthly sub and occasionally buy TPs. I can't understand how this update went live with so many issues. It is like buying a TV and not being able to adjust the volume on it, or access some of its other features. I think an apology from whoever made the call to putout this update in the state that it is in, is warranted, and some kind of compensation for your paying customers. I'm really p#%%ed off with you guys right now and very disappointed by your lack of good judgment, which in the end hurts this great game, and which could be even better if not for some of the disregard you guys have for us, your customers.

I'm wondering if this bug has anything to do with the fact that I can no longer put items into my bags in my inventories... Sigil and Shield pieces from the Orchard won't go into their 'cases', I can't pull essences, shards, collectables or anything else into my regular bags one at a time. I can hit the "gather" button on my crafters humongous bag and gather everything at once, but that doesn't work on his small bag...

Anyway... Just wondering if they're related. If not, I'll report it in the morning.

Thanks

I might rage quit for the night. I literally JUST dumped stuff in there last night, including some nice augments.

Oh well, it makes me feel better that I just gave a really really bad survey on my last in-game support issue yesterday. I just hope the bad review and them "confiscating" my stuff is not related. lol

Thankful I never used it. I really could not understand what its purpose was? I could put my non BTC bags in the shared bank or the occasional item from a bag in the shared bank. If I wanted to move it around. Having extra space for something that when I took out of a bag and tried to put back in the bag did not work seemed rather pointless and a cause for self-aggravation. If I want self-aggravation I can get some waggro.

I feel sorry for those that placed stuff in there. My worry-ometer would be hitting the red line if there was something in there that I was in complete game lust over.

I'm pretty sure that it was introduced to either allow people to exploit with bag related bugs or to cause players to lose in-game items because of bag related bugs.

Because that's pretty much everything that Turbine does with bags.

I am annoyed. I was so excited at finally being able to get the 12 bags worth of assorted ingredients out of my shared bank and into something where I could search them all at once.

I've learned that any feature in an MMO, whether new, updated, modified, etc, you always take it with a grain of salt. Never use any "new" thing for what it is intended for right off the bat. Expect flaws, take precautions. Use it as much as you can while not doing anything that will impede your character. Never ever expect anything to work perfectly right out of the box.

Cordovan - can you please either turn off the flagging mechanism for Litany or ensure GMs can advance the chain when requested to do so so people can run it. Many multiple TR's rely on and plan for this quest. Currently we cannot put sigil pieces in the frame, ergo, many cannot advance to Litany.

This is a PTP chain; it is only reasonable to expect a service (especially in this instance) to be functional. As a VIP i feel even more entitled to a work around. I say this with all due respect.

If either of these options are not feasible, please advise a solution that you think would be.
