This is intended as a complaint because in my opinion, some very important features got removed from the game and I would like to have them back.
If you like to support this request, please reply below.
Every civilized complaint should be constructive, so no flaming or foul language please.
Also I would like to point out, that the new web page looks really well and is clearly an improvement in terms of looks, no more mis-formated text in navigation links, no more half working features.
To business: What happened?
It seems that with the last update (August 1st 2013) and introduction of the new web page and forums
- The lore book got removed with no replacement
- Links to display character information out of game do not work anymore.
- No API or other way to keep up with game items and their properties seems available to players
I would like to make a strong case to give us these things back because we really need them! If Turbine wants to redo them in a better way (API: look at Eve online for example) then I will be patiently waiting, but I definitely want to feed back that things were removed that we absolutely will miss and want back!
I don' want to take screen shots of my equipment all the time, nor do I like to constantly load and unload my characters, and taking notes of stats, just so my crafting char can manufacture the right kind of equipment. This is definitely not effective and kills the fun in crafting. We need a way to display char info in a web browser, or we need the ability to log on more than one char from the same account.
Also for all our guild web pages, we would love to have a consistent way to link to ingame items, with correct graphics, tool tips, and all.
I hope I find a lot of support here,
