Lest anyone think this forum is unanimous, I am opposed to coconut wielding heralds.
And I agree with Jeremi. This looks like a PR stunt by Turbine to exploit some of Lotro's most enthusiastic players to deflect attention away from management's questionable game design decisions. But the council is completely powerless, and cannot be held responsible for anything.
The only conceivable benefit I can see from this would be an outside perspective capable of cutting through Turbine group think before changes become irreversible. It seems that when bad ideas hit Bullroarer, it is already too late. So having a group of ostensibly disinterested players in an NDA to screen ideas could possibly help. But Turbine might just spam them with bad ideas and keep the least offensive. For example, I could imagine the hobbit present slot machine being rejected by the player council, (which can reach a compromise to allow a hobbit present blackjack table).
Congratulations to our representatives. Good luck.

Undo the U12 class changes. The trait trees were, are, and will always be a bad idea.
