Re: Suggestions /beg
It is annoying as all get out. This situation is a fundamental part of the design of all Turbine games. I wish they had not done it this way.

I do not how we will ever get them to change their culture. Or convince them that it is worth the money to rewrite it all. The only thing worse that having all the pop ups take focus. Have the existing pop ups all take focus. The newer ones do not take focus.
From writing software, I understand the rationale behind having these kind of pop ups. Something has happened. Full stop. I am going to make the users. Drop what they are doing. Force them to provide a response before they can go back to whatever they were doing.
Dang. Turbine over uses it.
