I miss the lottery. This came up in in-game conversation yesterday.
I know it didn't work for some people, but I would have preferred that be fixed instead of disappearing it.
I'm sure it was a business decision.
The items in the daily dice don't compare, and I can only get them on one character at a time. I could also enter the lottery from outside the game.
Some of my most pleasant experiences came winning lesser hearts of wood and other goodies that I could bank for the future, and it made me feel that DDO was being "generous" to both newbies and those of us without a lot of guild ties and/or time to play.
My DDO experience is lessened without it.
I'm just sayin'
