    Whoah, something wonderful has happened.

    Hopefully the next schedules will arrive in time.

    Thanks a lot (for something that should be a matter of course) anyway!

    Yes. Unsure how it didn't get into the list, but shoulda been there.

    Can we please get a UI check-box to Permanently opt-out of the "special event" spam when we log in? Many of us have no interest whatsoever in the never ending Hobnanigans, Treasure Field, Festival, etc. activities.

    I personally dont mind the festival and treasure ones because its a 1 time deal but the chicken one is crazy and makes me barely log in on those weekends. Every time you switch a toon, level, fart, whatever that popup is there and it honestly turns people off of the game

    But that is the same feedback people have been giving since the very first round of it and yet the spam is still there

    I only get one Hobnanigans notice and it has been like this for several months now. One notice per character, just like all other festivals and events, though the extra maps are, or were, handy.

    These happen once per festival. If we're gonna spend dev resources implementing opt-outs, let's get the ability to opt out of things from the alert window. It never stops spamming alerts and is universally reviled. Seriously, I never need an alert that an LI has leveled up.

    I'm sure you're fine. It's just that this guy has a habit of reporting people for having multiple names. Or maybe it's just certain people. Anyway, your answer tells me that this has not been an issue for you. Thanks for your help in clearing that up. I think we just found our bias.

    Shouldn't the dates for the Skirmish Mark weekend be 11/17-11/21 and the dates for VIP weekend be 11/24-11/28 since most weekend things are Thurs-Mon?

    Hobnanigans 10/6/16@10am 10/11/16@3am
    Shouldn't this end the 10th?

    Thanks for the new events schedule Cordovan! Looking forward to the festivals.

    North Ithilien event??? I'm guessing this has something to do with flowers. But I don't see how that will appeal to anyone who isn't level capped. Can you give is more info on this, Cordovan? Or is this one of thus hush hush keep em guessing dealies?

    I assume that it is a one time event, similar to the events that were run before the Moria and Helms Deep expansions were rolled out. Which means, the players of each server will unite their efforts in collecting tokens and donating them to a NPC until they reach a certain threshold; and after that they will have access to specific (cosmetic) rewards that they can barter.

    I would like to have the ending date of the 10th Anniversary confirmed. Not including the 10th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt (which is a separate, but overlapping event with the Anniversary).

    I'm asking for this confirmation because:
    • Within this Event Schedule topic, Message #1, the Anniversary's end date states "5/9/17@3am".
    • Lotro-wiki's article says the Anniversary ends on May 8th, 2017 while citing SSG as the source. This source page does indeed state "May 8th".
    • And finally, somewhere or other (which I cannot locate now), there was another (official?) article that stated the end date was May 10th.


    I could understand if two consecutive days were stated - you end up in the confusion associated with the change of day - we see that all the time now with other Events where players think an event ends the next day (24 hrs later than posted). But we've got three consecutive dates, so either of two sets might be correct, and whichever two are correct will affect a player's own personal plans for participating in the Anniversary.

    So, again, can you please confirm the ending date for the 10th Anniversary? TYVM.

    Not an official comment, but your first 2 bullets are completely in agreement with each other and are advertised exactly as we've come to expect.

    Note that bullet #2's source just gives an end date (no time) stating "through May 8th". "through" a stated date has come to mean "active all day server time on the advertised date and ending during the normal daily server reset which occurs at 3am the next morning." Therefore, "through May 8th" completely agrees with Cordovan's post that states the Anniversary end time is "5/9/17@3am" server time.

    I think you can comfortably rely on the Anniversary event being up for the entire day of May 8th server time. It should shut off on May 9th at 3am during the normal daily server reset. If there's a third official source that states May 10th in any way, then that would be a conflict. I personally have not seen such a source, but if it's out there then it definitely needs to be corrected by SSG.

    As I've done for many years now, I continue to suggest that players finish a full day early just in case. I personally will be finished no later than May 7th and will use May 8th as a bonus day if the event is still up and running.
