The forum "Upgrade" has really sucked the life out of the community. Add that to the fact that there has been no Dev activity and the Lamland U18 release notes are NO WHERE TO BE FOUND, things are looking pretty sad right now.
I'm hoping for some big announcement in the coming weeks about the current state of things and what is being done to remedy things.
Release notes seem to be something that gets thrown together last minute if they are mentioned at all anymore. There is a massive disconnect in the company if they don't even have a record of what's actually in the current update. To be fair, a quick list was put together noting some of the changes, but it was after the fact and was lacking some detail.
If you're hoping for any big announcement about the state of things, I wouldn't be holding my breath if I were you. I'd love to be proven wrong, but communication is not one of Turbine's strong points. If anything, it's their weakest area and the first place they should be looking for overall gameplay improvement. It doesn't even require any coding at all. Just some printed words on a screen and communication within the company.
i can only assume this was done on purpose...and perhaps they relented and decided to allow those who really really want their old names and info connected to be allowed...eventually.
Maybe they wanted less on the forums and it was wasting their resources policing it?
No one I have ever worked with or for would just ignore migrating user accounts in forums. The whole problem with migrating from one version to another or whatever is keeping accounts the same.
So like I said...this has to be on purpose....
or they hired someone horrible to do it and they messed it up...and now they have to fix it.
As a programmer I gotta say...'sorry, it would too easy to associate them all again...very easy"
perhaps they wanted to clear out all the extra people that no longer play or one timers?
or they thought it would be easier to do it one by one and thus not have to do all millions?
either way, I am still waiting for the stupid store to open again...been trying to buy otto box all weekend, but cannot....pure BS.
no like new forums and lost information....boo
I don't even know why I bother looking on here. Probably because I want to see any news the developers give us.
Even now I just logged on to see if any updates happened because it's quicker then loading up the game only to find a lackluster group of 1 man quest boxes.
From the looks of the other threads that I can actually remember being on page 1 from a week or so back, i'd say the login thing hasn't been restored nor has anything newish happened though.
RAWRAWR I'm a giant worm. RAWRAWR I eat all of you. RAWRAWR and **** spice all over the forum.
Just passing through.
I have given up on the forums until they become improved again and I get my account back
Sad, for they were a regular great read; now they are just hard work, so not worth it.
The forum layout is painful to read. Even with applied CSS themes. No offense. The CSS themes make it bearable. But, it's still almost intolerable.
AND, the primary reason - there's no easily accessible information about the game anymore. No Dev Tracker to find out what the game makers are actually saying and doing.
So, what's the point?
That's just a guess though. Between the grayscale and all the eyebleeding I can't actually tell who's still posting.
Nah, the trolls are still here.
We've just gone back to Argo server forums for the moment.

Yes, forums a wasteland.
NOT good for the game. With the forums, posts are much like news for celebrities...there is no such thing as bad news for celebrities, and there is no such thing as bad posts...whether complaining or complementing, the forums encourage participation and enhance the overall game experience. NOT having a forum in today's world is just bad for business.
Turbine, please F I X the forums.

I wonder if any of the Turbine Managers discuss how they took their old traffic and dropped it by a factor of four or so.
Meaning, Turbine probably had 80,000 visits per day and now they probably have 20,000 visits per day.
April 2013 - Manager Meeting - New Forums, WOW!! We just had over 90% new players join!!
It's somewhat harsh, as with level 28 and a new expansion on the way, I'm only passing interested in leveling TRs and in collecting tokens to TR other folks. That's about it for playing too.
