    Wanna know how to fix problem/complaint without actually fixing a problem/complaint?

    Removed the means to track the problem/complaint then say you're fixing it.

    My reply to *********:

    Kinda silly giving me an infraction for "calling out" someone for doing something they, themselves have acknowledge publicly and have no issue doing. The only person that could possible be insulted by my post is "Hogpoker" who has no issues with doing what he was doing. I passed no judgment on him and his "actions in game" in my post nor was it insulting to anyone other than maybe Turbine. If Turbine is insult by the fact they allowed this to go on for so long under the ridiculous excuse of "we can't track it" then maybe they should have done something over a year ago about the "actions in game".

    LOL at you...

    Nope, farmfoot managed to put out another r15 warg farmer, "Hogpoker".
    He had quit a few 400k-500k infamy days this summer. Yea, Turbine had no way to track farmers...

    lol @ the pvp community. No retro means that thay have 100% made it clear that it was not against the rules at the time, which vindicates Turks and Thorvion for making a permanent laughing stock out of the pvp in lotro.


    Its funny, the infraction clarity now makes all those greenie spars farming.... LOL

    In my opinion, such as it is lol, its more like it wasn't made clear at all due to lack of a way to enforce it. In fact it was so muddy that normal fish (ones that don't stalk the forums) needed filters on their gills.

    I never noticed over the years where anyone from Turbine said anything other than it wasn't intended gameplay. However there were several comments early this year that they were looking into ways of enforcing, and that should have been a clue that it was, indeed, unintended.

    There are a lot of things you can do that aren't expressly mentioned in the CoC or other areas, but that Turbine would consider a no-no, but since they couldn't have anticipated every crazy thing a player could do, they couldn't have programmed checks and balances in before launch for the majority of them.

    This is also one of the ones that surely required efforts on multiple fronts to ensure that no players were falsely accused.
    Addressing the issue probably required a lot of customer service training and some technical mechanisms. I think Turbine chose to err on the side of not punishing players unfairly, and although I wish it had been a greater priority, at least we have a policy that can be enforced now.

    Yea, like when they took those 10s of thousands of skirmish marks away from people who where exploiting the Trouble in Tuckborough skirmish? Oh wait, they didn't. Do you even think before you post? I could name about a dozen other exploits that had no retroactive action associated with them but I'm pretty sure you're already familiar with how players get away with exploiting.

    Its funny, the infraction clarity now makes all those greenie spars farming.... LOL
    How about comm framing, seems their "definition" doesn't cover it. Can't really think of a more idiotic "policy" and lack of action than what they have chosen to do.

    They said nothing about the trains leaving grams, only that you cant kill them, I don't see any reason why a greenie train cant leave grams, as long as they aren't being killed....

    LOL at this hilarious potential loophole. Cant wait to see the train approaching TA and everyone running away afraid to be reported if they kill it.
