    I'm going to have to watch the recording on that one. Did they stuff him into the saddlebags of a war-steed?

    Totally blew the other times out of the water.

    I'm really thinking population has to do with it. Where are Arkenstone and Vilya on the population scale? Does that hurt bigger servers in the grand scheme of things?

    Anyway, it was quite lag-free. Their route is the one I would have chosen for at least until Dunland. They kept relatively scattered out as much as possible. Few cloaks, some horses.

    I feel sorry for the first servers. With so many servers and everyone being able to see the previous runs, the first servers were more or less the guinea pigs of the event.

    To person who kept following Sapience at the end so he couldn't take a proper pic, you are pathetic! I would like to say more but would get banned.

    Vilya planned the run backwards and forwards. I for one have seen no other server runs except one live broadcast. The route was Bree to Isengard, it's on the map We prepared a good team and ran it, which thankfully every member who found time to turn up and contribute their ideas and thoughts did. It was more than the usual commitment to a raid over several days and a big thank you must be said to all who took part on the day AND those players leading up to the event but couldn't be present who contributed brilliantly in all sorts of ways prior to the event. Much was discussed, debated and planned. There are so many additional unexpected players on the day you can not expect to plan for that. Except plan for the worst which meant anticapting every angle. Once the clock started we were our own guinea pig. The March 12th run was in fact THE FIRST TIME WE HAD SUCCEEDED! But confident we all were. It wasn't only just the anticipated brute force on the day from players just turning up, but everyone of the core team who had worked hard playing the part we'd rehearsed and anticipating what to expect. Even preparing some flip-flops for Sapience in case he got sore feet! It was great fun and those of you who contributed should be congratulated! Fantastic you guys! Thanks too Sapience for coming up with the event. More please! Let the race begin!

    The practice runs I participated in on Laurelin took an average of 45 minutes. There were some orc camps involved in our route. One run was very off peak and was even quicker. However, the actual event took over twice as long. Cloaks, horses, the laggiest member of the Sapience selected fellowship, having under 200 actual participants on the server, in multiple layers, leading to long interzone load times, all these things have an impact on actual server times. Some are controllable. Others not so much.

    It's still great fun, regardless of a Server's best laid plans working or not. I recommend joining a fellowship to escort any lower level player, even if you aren't in the same layer as Sapience. It's much harder than the chicken run due to aggro mechanics and quite challenging. And definitely a memorable moment if your fellowship succeeds.

    Screenshots should go straight to the pool room, Vilya!

    They're pretty equivalent, low population US servers about even with most other US servers not named "Brandywine" or "Landroval". They're my two former servers, so I know both quite well. I liked Vilya much better, so yay for the former server I liked outdoing the former server I didn't especially like, I guess. /shrug Though I don't pay much attention to events I can't participate in anyway.

    Thumbs up

    Just congrats to Vilya. Everyone did an amazing job and I wish I could've helped more, all I did was post suggestions all over for the leaders to consider XD
    But amazingly done, so proud of my server now!

    I hope people reported the 3 people who kept trying to lag the party since like the lone-lands though!
    I wish I could post the names, sadly forum rules say we can't :'( I saw the stream and those 3 people upset me so much.
    But overall great run!
    Was glad to see my kin-mates run around the screen abit on their respective jobs

    Even posting suggestions can be a good contribution if you don't have a role to play at the event itself. You assist in the plan and don't add to any lag.

    Speaking of, it is amazing that players would harass a CM event on a recorded livestream with high level characters on their own server. I almost feel sorry for them. (Loved the "need a pen; make sure I spell the names right" comment.)

    Wow, Congrats, Vilya!

    Very impressive showing indeed.

    All in all, a tremendously fun series of events, which is the real win here for every server.

    Though Vilya seems to have the bragging rights locked down at this point. That will be a high bar to clear.

    How does one Lag the Lotro? 3rd party software? like griefing with mulitboxing, macroing, and combat logging?
    I hope those people don't get banned, after all it seems rather silly getting upset and banning those people, when It happens to turbine, and when the tons of people who get greifed on a daily basis post of being griefed,have their threads closed and told to stop.

    Part of what I personally enjoy about these is watching plans either come together or fall completely apart. It's interesting to see how people react to both situations. Sometimes people are doing so well and then they tense up and start doing poorly or they start off poorly and really get it all together and lay down an impressive time.

    I'm not sure it was ever stated that Bullroarer would be up today. Just that they were aiming/hoping for Bullroarer going up this week and that, in general, they would try for starting on Thursdays.

    Until an official start time is given, it is all in a "no promises" zone. (And even when one is given, things can come up, though hopefully they would tell us as soon as it did.)

    The saddest thing about the people trying to sabotage it were native Vilyans. You would imagine people from other servers trying to sabotage )which was what i had thought and maybe some were imvolved, cuz they seemed to do their best to create as much lag as possible and ruin the pic at the end) but one of the people i recognized as a vet. I don't play there much because there are alot of griefers there sadly. I was very surprised Vilya pulled it off and glad to help in the event. I think the key was the planning and organization. That was impressive. i was very proud of those who set it up and took time to make it all work.

    The BR Hobbit run is tomorrow. Theoretically, that means BR must be up and running and patchable before then. xD

    Or, Sapience just has one of the devs run him to Isengard and they have the rest of the team smite any mobs with GM powers. Fastest, most lag-free run EVER.

    Kudus must be given to ALLANAR of Vilya, who planned the route, figured out the groups, and made for easy pathing of our core raid. We had many kinships involved, and many excellent players clearing the way. We do believe others can cut our time down, but it was amazingly fun for all of us; even us lemmings who followed Hadacar / Sapience into the River after taking him to Isengard! Thanks Sapience for the awesomely fun time and for joining the right raid! IF he would have joined any other group, we would not have been able to win! Thanks all and thank you VILYA for a great job!

    The Community Manager said at one point he was leaving the names up so others would know who the knuckleheads were. Some of the antics with jumping flying horses were obnoxious and it seemed like Sapience wasn't as into the run as he was Arkenstone's. The numbers don't lie though, so congratulations Vilya.

Then a bumpy ride with so much lag that the server stand still and instant death from moving. I hope Sapience, that you just werent on AFK follow but felt the server problems that we play in every day. Bring this to the developers and make them solve it please.

    On next event try enjoy all interrested and not just a fragment of the players that wants to join.
    Small fellowship? He was in our raid of 24 people, all who partook in training and assisting to ensure his safety and speed. Allanar practiced this area for over a month! Sorry you didn't get in the raid, but again, this was something prepared to get him in the raid as soon as possible
