    Little things coming to the lottery system.

    Just spoke to our lead web guy and he's hard at work on some tweaks for the lotteries. These won't be major changes and they're part of a series of small changes coming 'Soon', no ETA.

    Better feedback when clicking submit.
    It won't be 'pretty' but it will be more obvious you've successfully entered the lotteries.

    Ability to see all active lotteries when not logged in

    Being able to see there are active lotteries while not logged in will be great!

    Just make sure you add a "You are Currently Not Logged in" reminder for those wanting to do the lottery, but their session timed out.

    Otherwise we'll have more forum posts on "why aren't my characters showing in the lottery list"

    If you look at the image I linked in my post you'll see it says "You must login to enter active lotteries" in large type at the top.

    My saracasm detector is busted. You do know that screenshot was of a test server, not anything running on live right? (we seriously need a "not sure if serious" smiley)

    Oh, Sapience, you disappoint me.

    By the way, I know a man that can fix your detector for you on the cheap, no questions asked and all that. I can send you his number; I think it was 666.

    Nice! I don't mind checking frequently to see if there are any lotteries, but logging in is now a nightmare, and we constantly get logged out for whatever reason, it was just too much of a hassle.

    But what if I want to win Gimili's smelly socks?

    To bump up the prize pool in the "Gimli's Socks" lottery I am willing to donate one half used tub of dwarvern beard wax, a mammothbone corset (used and slightly broken - size large) and a bag of miscellaneous beard trimmings.
    Fight on my dwavern sisters! May the orc blood always wash right out your frilly dresses.

    But,... I thought getting a pair of Gimli's smelly socks to hang over the mantle of my fireplace was part of the newly revamped housing system.

    Obviously that was a lottery used to payoff only Sapience/Turbine/WB loyalists, as an inside joke that they think the rest of us are just some smelly socks and point out their superiority! Beyond that it served to publicly shame those who thought it was a real lottery, plus it is also a slap in the face to those who bought into the lie they told about housing revamps.

    Once one sees and understands this triple coded message, it becomes obvious that the lottery screenshot contains the Hidden Truth. Sapience/Turbine/WB is the Unholy Trinity, The Axis of Evil. Combine this with the documented facts that Sapience has close ties with The Bilderberg Group, Turbine spelled backwards, Enib-rut, is a translation from ancient Sumerian for "Star Lords", and WB Headquarters are built using Sacred Geometry and the CEO's office has a window that always faces the rising sun, the implications become clear. This Axis of Evil is just a beginning, an expeditionary force, if you will, to facilitate our invasion from Ancient Aliens.

    Hope that helps

    LOL You could add the visuals from the Great River quest (The stinking flowers). As long as you have them in your house you get that visual whenever you go home.

    LOL, nice! I just hope if the new house system comes along that I can hang them over my fireplace. Or better yet, install a clothesline in the back yard to hang Gimli's socks (and other cosmetic outfits to dry!)

    Scoured the various Lottery threads looking for news that *hopefully* someone will decide to run the durations a little longer. Have tried checking fairly often and not seen a lottery since the Helm's Deep one.


    News on the new offline viewer?

    I do not believe there has been one since the last 3 day Helms Deep Lottery.

    Why would you need one? All you need is internet access and a browser. Go to:
    https://www.lotro.com/en/lotteries
    All active lotteries are displayed for everyone. No need to log in.
    Unless stated otherwise, all content in this post is My Personal Opinion.
