    FYI, the extra bonus loot this weekend is our way to try to say "thank you" for your patience during our downtime last weekend. In case you were wondering why we're doubling up on our bonuses.

    That is very nice of you. Everyone's hard work during an unexpected outage and your consideration of your client base is appreciated.

    I hate to be mr negativity, but sorry, i did not have any patience last weekend, this does not in any meaningful way make up for it, and i don't appreciate what you did .

    this is because the only reason you did the extra work was because you had failed to make the proper investments in your hardware and data infrastructure, including having redundancies available so when an "outside" provider screws up you have a backup way to keep the game online.

    I love this game and want what is best for it, and unless you guys make a little less profit and make a bit more quality it is not going to be good.

    Things like what you had happen last weekend, on a holiday no less, loses customers and generates bad publicity. having +1 loot this weekend in addition to some bonus xp does not do the equivalent in reverse.

    Default Thank you!

    Some of us realize that Turbine is a company run by human beings that does business with companies run by other human beings. And, since there is not one perfect human being on the face of the earth, stuff happens. Sometimes it unfortunately happens on a holiday weekend. Since nothing humanly possible will ever give us back that time, Turbine is doing something to help ease the pain. I, for one, appreciate it. I especially appreciate the XP bonus since the most important thing I lost was time on my TR.

    Thanks again Turbine!

    I figured as much and THANK YOU

    Better Stuff and MORE XP - what could possibly be wrong with that

    thank you BUt...

    You're saying a +1 today makes up for a +2 lost and all that downtime on top of it? I know you don't need to do anything because it "wasn't your fault".. Problems occur, we all realize that but HOW YOU make up the problem to the customer will always be remembered....

    ... here is a peanut butter samich because we burnt your Tenderloin... Meh

    It should be a +3 loot weekend if you want to make amends for lost loot AND play time. +1 is ....

    Turbined again.

    This...

    I know we're among the minority here, for not agreeing with the fanbois, but I agree this doesn't make up for their recent blunders. Between the outage, the FUBAR'd raid lists, and the indefinitely out-of-service Sagas we deserve much more than a miniscule +1 loot bonus. To me, this is almost worse than getting no reparation at all. It's insulting.

    I agree a +3 weekend would be acceptable. They should also give the players a 3x bonus point sale, too. We haven't had one in long time, and it would make a lot of people happy. Besides, you know... making a lot of money?

    100% agreed with Shmuel. "..eat this bone, mob. This doesn't cost anything for us, but we'll represent a type of generous donators of the benefits.."

    The 2 additional days of VIP they awarded don't count for anything?

    As Cordovan said, its a double bonus. 20% heroic and epic xp plus +1 to loot is actually quite nice.
