    Lotteries, a good hook

    I really enjoy the little various lotteries. It keeps me logging in here and it gives a nice sense of continuation, of progress perhaps. I think the lotteries work well to pull a hesitant gamer into logging on and having some fun.

    It would be nice if the little lotteries were a bit more frequent, perhaps some scaled marks 100-1000 (20-85), the occasional bounder bag (this month of course), little buffs and similar.

    Totally agree.

    I miss the regular lotteries we used to have.

    When I started (2+ years ago) there seemed to be a lottery every 2/3 days and a 'fluff' one nearly every day during festivals,
    it was a huge draw for me, I'd find myself logging into the forum everyday to check lotrolotto and the more-often I won - the more I'd log into the game to claim/check mail (then end up playing even if not intended).

    I'm not sure at which point Turbine went all 'Scrooge McDuck' on us with the lotteries -or weather it was a gradual decline of generosity in the last two years.

    This. Flash lotteries were fun. 1 day lottos are a lot funner and give more people a chance to participate. I just came back to the game to find that I almost never see lottos anymore =\

    Lotteries definitely had a draw for me when they were scheduled. I know they said that lotteries were never intended to be a regular thing, but I really don't see why not. I think it was a good thing. Since the schedule is not likely to return, though, I do keep hoping that after Helm's Deep launches and has some time to get going, they'll happen a little more often (even if just for silly things like a bit of silver and fireworks) and for minimum 24 hour periods instead of 30 min periods.

    I miss the old lotteries as well. It made the whole experience a bit better. I used to check them all the time and since I've been back to Lotro this time around I haven't seen any like before, just a few for Helm's Deep keys. That is nice and all, but I'd prefer a bunch of little ones like we used to have. I'd rather buy HD to support the game, but I don't buy little fluff so it is missed.

    I would love to see at least one Harvest festival lottery. It's fun to win stuff, even if it's only worth a few silvers, so how about it?

    Looks like lotteries are back to their pre-community site nerf. non-existant.

    According to Sapience, there's simply not enough hours in the day for him to run these things at the moment, indicated by a couple of stressed-but-happy posts from him. I think we could see one or two of the Official big lotteries before HD release but truly unlikely to see any of the actual fun ones This is my interpretation. Last mini-lottery ended on september 25 (started sep 22) I think, and there has been two of the lotteries with 1 winner per server since.
