    Yep, tentatively. So hopefully that still happens.

    And I believe we will also see an encore of the Anniversary festival, since that is told to include a low-end version of the scavenger hunt for lowbies.

    The LOTRO Events Schedule has been updated! In addition to filling out some further weekends for the year, we've added a Spring Festival Encore, which will run from 5/18 @10am Eastern until 5/28 @3am Eastern. This overlaps with two other bonuses; a Lootbox Weekend and a VIP Event Boost. We have also reduced the frequency of Hobnanigans to approximately the first weekend of every other month, rather than approximately every month. This change is being done due to feedback on the popularity of the event. If we hear player desire to return to our previous frequency, we'll consider it.

    I hate those encores! I see why you are doing it, but I think the repetition kills the specialty of the event that is there - and then is gone. Imagine Christmas (or any other important festival) Encore every year! What would that do to the feelings we have about it?
    If you want to give people more time to finish deeds/barter for items, why not make the festival longer in the first place? Or, if need be, extend it like you used to do in the past?

    I haven't played Hobnanigans in a long while. I liked the game as such, but in order to have a chance of winning, I for one had to concentrate extremely hard and found it very stressful to do it like that for 10 minutes. Especially, because you aren't done with one or two (winning) games but have to play (or rather - win) many times in order to gather enough tokens for a barter item. I always felt so worn out after a session of several matches that I gave up playing Hobnanigans altogether.
    I think I would start playing it again if the duration of a match was considerably reduced (halved?).

    Thanks so much for that! I was too busy last month to do the festival and many of my friends were as well... I'll let them know that we can all do it now that we have more time!
    Please keep the encore's coming for every festival! It really helps those that don't have as much time, regardless of what other people feel, these encores don't harm anyone. Spring goes from March to June, so the encore makes perfect sense... specially since until 2016, Spring Festivals happened in May.

    If the festivals were longer, people would be burned out by the end and not log in as much. By putting a space between, it gives people a mental break from the festival so it seems fresh and they get more logins. But I second the vote for no encores, short of technical problems where a festival doesn't work properly the first time around.

    Since the summer festival has been acknowledged as having a festive "skirmish" of sorts, perhaps Hobnanigans could be converted to this format? It would save the trouble of checking the fields in hopes of finding a group going. If you made the players go up against an NPC team, it would also remove the multi-box farming component, though some may not like that. Probably a better solution to farming is reducing the number of tokens you need considerably.

    About Hobnanigans... it really needs a total revamp... the matches are way too long and items are too expensive. The game itself is pretty fun when played fairly. But the lack of interest is probably related to items being too expensive and matches being very long, making it very boring.

    I am a vote for festival encores. They're nice breaks from the main game and they are an opportunity for people who, for whatever reason, could not log in during the main festival dates.

    The great thing about festival encores is you don't need to participate if you don't want to.

    That said I get what you're saying. And perhaps you're like I can be often... if it's there I feel like I have to do it because then it won't be back for another year. Still nobody is forcing you to participate.

    Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about just having a longer festival time vs. having encores. I guess either is fine with me, but then Vilan has a point about having the break in between.

    After noticing that we had originally schedule the Spring Festival Encore to turn off on Memorial Day in the U.S., we're extending the event through May 30th! It'll now shut off at 3:00am Eastern on the 31st.

    Anniversary encore: does this include festival only, or also the Anniv Event with "yearly" quests from Party Tree?

  14. #289
    Dunno if anyone already asked this


    Isn't supossed Buried Treasure Hunt is each 3 months? Why only on July? Should be one around october



    Oh, and I suggest for the Tale of the Shipwrecked Mariner event... perhaps a level scaling for the prizes? The higher one is lvl 35 >.>

    And maybe a questline just for fun?

    Just wanted to add my thanks for the choice to have festival encores. I have a lot of characters and not a lot of time, and knowing there's an encore takes a lot of the stress off of me to get everything done on everyone and helps the festivals be fun for me. Thank you!

    I totally agree! Please revamp Hobnanigans. It has not to be a totally other event but it would be great if you can do it solo oder the time is reduced oder the costs of the pets are reduced. At the moment i ignore it completely because it is not possible to find people.

    Festivals & encores

    Love both, & I think the encores are a great way to catch a few more tokens, or to get that one more item you really wanted, but barely missed, whether it is on a main character, or a fav alt. But cannot find out when our next one is , because the calendar is missing those key dates. Can someone please let us know when they are happening, pretty please with sugar on it??

    Thanks for the schedule info Cordovan!

    An idea: do you think there’s any chance we could see the weekly offers further in advance? Personally it would give me something to save for, or not, depending on what is coming up. A bit like Xbox live tells people the games for gold in advance.

    For example, I wanted to buy the Eriador quest bundle that was on sale a couple of weeks back, but couldn’t as I was temporarily VIP. I know there’s an element of wanting people to stay subscribed business wise and I get that, but if I had known it was coming on sale I would still have gone VIP for that month for other reasons; I would have just waited a couple of days, bought the quest pack first and gone VIP after. At that time I wouldn’t have bought 4K LP at once, but would have spent money to get the sale item.

    Thanks!
