    I do not, but typically I update the schedule as soon as the world event calendar is settled on.

    I'd really appreciate a Yule Fest encore! Adding my voice to others who do too.

    Christmas season is the busiest holiday time all year, and while Yule fest was around for a month, many of us didn't get to participate as much as it allows.

    I'm just one day behind in completing final tier of Festive Flurry dailies... An encore will be so appreciated!

    Typically, based on previous years.....


    Yule Encore (if it happens): Mid-February to Late February or Early March.
    Spring Festival: Mid-March through Early April.
    Anniversary: Mid-April through early May.
    Summer Festival: Late June through Mid-July.

    What I am hoping for next though in late January or so..... is a Treasure Hunt! I believe the last time we had one was July 2018, so I think it is overdue....

    An encore would be nice. The weeks around Christmas and the End of the Year/New Year are usually quite busy and there is less time to play.

    Cordovan:

    Yuletide is unique in that many of us are very busy during the year end holidays, which keeps many of us out of the game, if not all years, but certainly enough years to disappoint us to see Yuletide last only a short time never to return.

    YES, encore 2018/2019 Yuletide, and please keep encoring all festivals, but especially the Yuletide festival.

    It's nice to hear ahead of time on not bringing back Yuletide in a 2019 encore, so players can speak out about how much we love Yuletide each year.

    Wish I could list the names of the players who like Yuletide so much that it's their #1 favorite festival.

    Having said that, all other festivals throughout the year are very much packed also.

    PLEASE bring back Yuletide.

    I recall several years ago it was the norm to engage encores for all festivals, if not most for sure. Players love this.

    Thank you Cordovan for asking for our comments, and for reading them.

    Having another Yule event in summer like last year would make the encore redundant, though. It's a "totally not Christmas"-event, three times a year is a bit too much, IMHO.

    Add me to the list of Encore fans please. The holiday season was so busy this year, and with many players also now playing a new server full of new alts, of all the years to not put out an encore, this would probably be the worst one to not include it. Players have got used to having them now, so my suggestion would be if you plan to discontinue them, then do so with an announcement on any future encore, that it will be the last one - and keep them coming until that announcement is made. That way, no nasty surprises for your player base, some of whom, have come to rely on the encores if their playtime is short.
    Treat others as you do your best pictures, and place them in their best light.

    Not sure about you, but I can play the game just fine when there is a festival going on. I just don't go to it if I have no wish to do it, and its like it doesn't even exist.

    I hope there will be a Yule Fest encore this year.

    This holiday season was especially hectic, so I didn't get nearly enough time to enjoy it.

    An encore for this year's Yule festival would awesome!

    Encore, please. I'm complete this year and don't need to participate in an encore, but I've definitely been thankful for festival encores in the past when life happened and I missed a significant portion of them. Encores do no harm to me or anyone else who chooses not to participate.

  18. #393
    yes please keep the encore

    I agree you can just ignore it, I've done it. I don't care for encores and don't want em, but for me its about the game itself not to have it. Not just that i don't want them, but that it should be special for lotro to only have once a year festivals, as it was years ago.

    I concur. If an encore is not going to happen, it would be helpful to know in advance so I can plan who to play and what to buy during the time it's available. If a festival occurs when I'm really busy, I often count on the encore to make it possible for me to get the things I want, especially the steeds.

    It would also be nice if the daily quest amount was reduced a bit, say to 8 instead of 10. That way I don't have to worry about others being around for theater or snowball fight to complete the wrapper quest, and I can potentially run through more alts that way.

    Years ago the festivals had much less items to barter and a lot of the cosmetics were not bound to account.
    Last year's mount was discounted and there even was a complete war steed set to be bartered for a reasonable price.
    Years ago a lot of people in my kinships (incl. myself) had much more time to play - and probably less other chars who may be in a level range to use a warsteed.

    Now you need almost two days to barter for one piece of war steed cosmetics if you aren't sitting on a lot of tokens. And even golden tokens run out fast with prices of 80 tokens.
    Last year's mount isn't (eventually) discounted anymore.
    New cosmetics can't be shared with kith and kin anymore but must be bartered by each and every one. Yes, there are gift boxes but once opened you are stuck with them.
    And play time has grown much shorter.

    I'm not even looking at things like colours, scrolls, crystals or figments at this festival.


    Harvestmath was fine but Yuletide prices for war steed cosmetics were a dissapointment - especially since the items are really nice. Finally a rather simple head piece.

    If mounts and warsteed cosmetics had reasonable prices and/or were available for longer than two years (no, I dont think the MC prices for at least the cosmetics are reasonable) I might not call for encores. But as it is now it helps. Especially with Yuletide as that is a really busy time in RL.

    I'd originally thought the Yule festival time seemed long enough, but then ended up out of town for the latter half of December...so count me as +1 more for voting ENCORE (just needed 4 more days to finish my Spirit of Yule quests, alas).

    Years ago, things were a lot more simple and a lot less grindy. Players have a massive grind to do on normal play, before they can think about the festival each day. If you missed something from the festival, a quick trip to the AH would sort it for you, but not anymore. Plus, see my earlier post about the legendary servers being here now. Players have more alts on more servers to think about.

    I'd also be fine with the once a year thing of years ago, if they reduce the grind to how it was back then to go with it.

    Whether we agree on this or not, one thing is pretty evident, the festivals themselves and also the encores, are very popular. They are full of players, from start, right up until the last day. IMO, it would be a shame to waste that opportunity to remain popular with the wider player base, just for the sake of a few.

    So, I have not responded to a thread on the forums in a decade. PLEASE add me to the list of folks requesting an encore of the Yule Festival. I *thought* it was standard and was looking on the calendar this morning specifically for the information on when the encore was scheduled.

    Thanks for all of your hard work Cordovan.

    +1 for Encore. I have 47 characters to grind through on Festival (which I enjoy greatly, don't get me wrong). I can't do all of them every single day because I need to sleep sometime, so the encore greatly reduces my festival stress because I know that if I do miss something on a character, I'll be able to pick it up during Encore.
