It is not likely we will ever meet IRL. So your writing is all I will ever receive from you (read it and either remember it or discard it), so this should be your moment to shine and leave behind some hints of your true personality. At least this is free.

    You want to defend Turbine? go ahead. You want to rant and express your anger? go ahead. At the very least, it will be entertaining and help past the time waiting for them to finally reboot the servers.
    Very well said.

    If I may be so bold as to tack a small thought onto the end of yours, I'd suggest (to both sides and all in the middle) that we do, in fact, have the right (whether or not it's observed by those "in power") to say whatever we like. The question is, does the fact that we have the right to say "...", make it the right thing to say?

    Not good. After 8 years, I'd think beta would be over.
    I bought points friday with no problem so its probably not connected.

    I was almost ready to be impressed till you said 'Wayfinder'. Now I'm far from impressed. Playing on Wayfinder - a dead server - is like Goku training in the gravity chamber. You have no choice BUT to play solo, 9 out of 10 times. Learn to solo, move to another server, or quit the game. :P

They have an absolute unlimited supply. Ottos Box or Cya . Nothing besides that , you could offer me to stick around for 3 day outages on holiday weekends. And all those people who keep saying its not turbines fault its an outside source. If a contractor hires a plumber to come to your house and the plumbers work is *****....Who do you think is responsible for that fock up? The contractor or in this case turbine. They hired the company that is responsible for the outage...so they are most definitely responsible for the outage. Also the people crying for a refund on your missed 3 days, Don't worry they will make sure you get everyday refunded. Its only absolutely free to them. Truth is they will offer xp, loot and renown boosts for 5 days or so and that's what we will get. The vips will get their money refunded. And the servers will be as empty as they were last time this occurred. Don't drop the soap if you are in the shower with DDO
    If you have invested 400 dollars a month then I would be very very surprised to see you walk, even if they didn't give you a damn cent. It would seem that if you are spending that kind of money on this game it must consume a large part of your life, and you are most likely addicted to it just as much as someone is addicted to coffee or cigarettes.

    BUT, With all that said, even if they are down till Tuesday morning, its still not 3 days down on a long weekend. The game has only been down for 6 hours or so, So you had all day Saturday and most of Sunday to get your fix (my time anyways GMT-5). I hope for down the time to be covered and I am more than happy for that, because if they give me 2 days back i probably would have only played 4-6 hours in those two days, so I'm really getting a bonus. Its like getting a whole day of free movies at the movie theater because they cancelled the show i was going to....

    On a side not I wish i had cameras in your house the day they cancel DDO. I would love to see you loose your **** because you lost all your virtual stuff. They money you spent was for entertainment(and i agree they should make right for time you couldn't play)... you are entertained at the moment, afterwards they owe you nothing.

Heck, he could miss that one chance of meeting that one person who knows the meaning of 'his' life. So much possibility, wasted...


    off topic a bit.......

    so what if some1 wants to skip 11 lvls of running with pugs, they might be testing a build that gets full play at lvl20-28. theres different kinds of players: get to cap ASAP, make a new toon everyday, stay capped and run raids for the rest of life, get back to lvl1 from 20 ASAP. i used a otto box to get thru a 2 lives i didnt want to learn on the toon i was playing, when i want to learn a class ill make that class to learn. its the VIP/P2P and all these nifty exp potions, otto/bigby boxes, that keep this a going game for the future VIP/P2P from F2P.

    some ppl just buy a new car instead of spending the time to make one.

    No.

    But in that discretion lies the variation between adults and children.

    In game, or on web? I finally gave up and spent 50 on the web (Not quite as good of a deal as 59.95 for 6250, but I wanted the points)

    Every time I tried in game I got "Service Unavailable, try again later"

    My bad. I didn't make it clear I was agreeing with you. Sorry about that.

    I'm with you on the waiting. I've made similar comments all evening on this and another thread similar to it.

    My intent was to show people how old school PnP players know three days of downtime is not that bad, and the wait is always worth it.

    See? This is what happens when I come out of my corner of shame!

    Ummm just curious but how is it a vendors fault if your launcher (which is your software) is not downloading...doesn't that make it your fault?

    I have been waiting for 4-5 hours..I just TRed and relogged because of that darned zoom bug (you can't zoom out after logging into a few characters) and bang I'm stuck..I also reinstalled etc etc..I wish they had a page that was easy to find that explained what the heck was going on...cause this lot was down too...have to rely on 3rd parties to get any info...that is not very cool.

    Can you please give us a darned estimate of when it will be fixed? Jeez what Customer Service teachers did you have? Don't you know you have to tell your customers something other than...we won't tell you, but it's not our fault...I mean jeez.

    Hello Storm Lord. How's Thelanis doing? My first server. Played there back when Legion got banned for forcing people to pass the renown to them in the chests. Anywho, you missed my followup post, when I mentioned I used 7 XP stones back to back to gain Completionist status. :P

    As long as you do not know anything from Wayfinder, go play where it is crowded and laggy.

    Risk at least can fill a raid from within his guild. And you?

    Whats that saying? You know love is blind? Doesn't your girlfriend/wife get you know jealous? Or are you both in love just not really with each other?

    Those who say they have free speech and the right to say whatever they want whenever they want are very misinformed. It went to the Supreme Court once that you do NOT have the right to shout "FIRE!!!" in a crowded theater. When you go to work for someone you voluntarily give up your right to free speech. And none of this has anything to do with Turbine being down but I am getting bored I guess and I really did want to get a chunk of that last 400K I needed to recap my Barb. I went from 25 to 26 in the first 6 days after the update and to 27 (400k short of 28) in the next 7. Dang it I was on a roll!!!...lol.

    Well get back in your corner! :P

    Yeah, my longest pnp battle lasted 17 weeks. 17! just over 4 months long! And I was the DM! :'( On the upside, the barbarian snatched a magical earring out of the reward chest, and...

    Barbarian: I put it on!!!

    DM: You do?

    Barbarian: YESH!!!

    DM: Okay, roll a fortitude save.

    Barbarian: What?

    DM: Roll a fortitude save.

    Barbarian: ... okay? ...

    *Barbarian rolls a 2. Fails fortitude save.*

    Barbarian: Uhm?

    DM: You scream like a little girl and pass out from the pain of shoving an earring into your unpierced ear.

    ... THAT was a fun night!
