    Has the lottery been dropped 100% now ?

    I can see that the lottery is not under the community menu anymore ( or perhaps it is just me )

    Does this mean that the lottery has been dropped 100% now ?

    It's still in my menus after a refresh.

    The lottery servers have been down since the power-outage but now that at least one of the Character-copys been fixed the rest of the way, maybe they can get the lotteries up and running

    It was removed to prevent people from going to a site that didn't function. Until such time as the system is restored, there isn't any real point in having the link. At this time I have absolutely no ETA on when it will return, only that I keep asking for it to return.

    I so hope it's back by the anniversary event. I love the token lotteries during that time. I can rack up the skirmish marks. LOL I will say though that I am not too positive they will be back by then.

    Maybe some of the resources that were tied up in the automated character interface and functionally will take pity on us and lend their aid

    Not to sound like a pessimist, but I find it highly unlikely.

    I don't know if it would be difficult or not, but you may want to consider removing the additional link between "Community Guidelines" and "Submit a Bug" on the forum-link-bar

    @Sapience

    Honestly, they need to bring it back, and not for the loots in all reality.

    The real advantage of something like a lotto that people have to sign up for / enter, is the fact it creates traffic to your website, which is always good, and it creates goodwill for your player base, which is even more important.

    Well loot is always good I guess

    But seriously, this game can use as much good press as it can get. Any fringe benefits the subscribers get only helps lock in more paid subs which never hurts.

    There is no down side to having the lotto in game for all sides involved.

    I miss the lottery too. Maybe someday it will return! *crosses fingers* I get that it's not an easy fix.

    Like others, it's not the loot that I miss, it's the element of surprise, anticipation, engagement and creativity that I dearly miss. I miss checking in regularly and seeing clever, funny little lotteries posted. I miss checking my mail and finding some random goodies. I miss the pretty ponies. I miss the feeling of regular interaction with the Turbine team and the site. It also gave me more incentive to login to my probably 50+ characters on various servers and keep them all active.

    +Sapience, if you need more arguments/ammo to get them back on the table, let us know!

    Yes, yes, yes.

    I really miss the lotteries.

    I'd love to see it come back, but hobbit presents tend to mitigate that a bit, IMO. If they'd add some big, but less likely jackpot stuff like there'd be in the lottery, like special mounts, that would probably help, too.

    Hope for the lottery

    I hope you guys return the lottery. I live out in the sticks, so my internet service is by satellite service, which doesn't allow me to participate in fellowships(3,6,9,12,raids, whatever). The only chance of acquiring any loot/prizes was if offered by the lottery and it wasn't as if you go on and win everything you needed every time you signed up.
