I don't really see why he should really care. So outside of getting a kick out of winding people up..................I don't know, maybe hes so in love with turbine that anything negative about it gets his panties in a twist? Though this sort of thing isn't always bad, it can be good for the company showing them how some of their customers feel about things in game, so might lead them to making better decisions and plans for the future who knows?
    He has expressed endearment towards their staff, and mentions having met them personally, there is perhaps the fact that he is emotionally invested in the feelings of the people at Turbine and wants to protect them from something, however, to block out reality does not do any favors to anyone, like the parent that tries to hide their child from the evils of the world, ultimately hides the world from their child.

    Turbine wants to eliminate the TR-ing trend in favor of returning gameplay to first life toons, thus TR-ing is more difficult.
    Stop crying and roll a new alt instead.

    TR's have long been hurting the PuG scene with their zergy, "omnipotent builds only instead of teamwork" mentality and this is a positive step forward that also nets Turbine more money off of the elitist TR mustard race who live in the past.

    I already have 34 characters, thanks. Don't really feel like rolling another one just because you think so.

    aaaand another one who completely missed the fact that turbine is working their nuts/berries/iron defenders off to find a solution that will keep the TR playerbase happy.

    turbine are not going to punish the TR crowd for playing it their way, they are busy trying to find a way to keep the TR crowd happy

    glin is on twitter going on about a paradigm shift and how they got it wrong. last time he mentioned paradigm shift was when they ditched the idea to nuke everyones epic destinies. so yeah, that kinda says to me that they have heard the protest, both forum and in game (seriously, great effort on both parts and check out the forum thread, tons upon tons of constructive feedback there with minimal ranting)

    so you can sit there looking smug all you like, but it will soon fade.

    that does not invalidate your point about zerging with newbies in tow. it's a point that is close to my heart as after 3 runs through the waterworks playing follow the blue dots i still had no idea where i was until i soloed it. so i remember when i was a newbie playing follow the dots and i do try to slow down when i know there is a newbie with me. sometimes if a newbie joins my group first i might even take down the LFM so we can duo at a slower pace allowing them to explore the quest properly.

    Well, with the "paradigm shift" promised to come, I will now wait and see before I protest more.

    vote4 Hall of Fame Thread. (I can't believe it isn't there already)

    Why?

    "bridge event" became a dictum in DDO forum speech.

    and there are more reasons:

    * The community united
    * the games press reacted and published about it
    * Devs took screenshots and notice
    * Wayfinder got 3 Market instances
    * sit-in was successful

    It's a shame to bury this thread. So I necromance it and say: Better conserve it in the hall of Fame ... or not?

    The thread was nothing special, it was the action that people took that actually mattered.

    My thought as well. If an outside observer can't look at the first page and know exactly what this was about, then the thread isn't special enough to warrant the nomination. Most outside observers likely wont read through the thread to work it out. Sorry, this isn't a knock on the event itself, there may be other threads the necro-OP could find that better capture the event.

    Basically they were going to change the ability to earn any hearts in game and force all hearts to be purchased through the store if I recall properly.

    Not quite. But they were going to make getting hearts a lot harder.

    The initial decission was to make hearts only to be bought in the shop. Then the storm began to brew in the forums and Occupy Bridge started. And then we finally got the solution of today where we may farm for both the iconic and epic hearts. So basically, w/o the Occupy Bridge movement and the forum ****storm we would as of today have a buy-only eTR and iTR system. What you mention is already a step in between where after the storm started, they 1st time told us that they will make heart seeds farmable, but the initial costs where just too high.
