I see that you are posting here in the forum, so I have a question for you.
As the title says, I am curious as to Turbine's current "Official Position" (if there is one), on addressing *existing* bugs in the game, and in particular addressing the 'known issues list'. There are numerous known issues in that list that have been around for years.
I fully and completely support the release of new content, it is needed for the game to continue and grow, so please do not take this post as a slam in that direction.
The last thing I have read from a senior member of Turbine was from Fernando about a year ago (Producer letter August 2012), where he said in part "... we are also aware of feedback from some players expressing concern over the size of our known issues list. We agree, and so the team is now adjusting plans to shift our focus to bring more quality-of-life patches to help address important bugs in our upcoming releases. ..." Well, I am sorry to say, from what I can determine, that over the past year, while there have been some bug fixes released, the known issues list has unfortunately grown since that letter was posted.
I realize that asking for any major effort for the pending update is unrealistic, as it is nearly ready for release. However, I, at least, would appreciate even a small amount of developer time be directed to cut down the known issue list.
Thanks in advance!
