    Coupon Codes Less Available

    Coupon Codes in the store are valid Thursday through Thursday.

    It used to be that the LotRO Beacon was posted every Thursday, containing among other things, the next free sample coupon code.

    The Beacon is lately posted on Friday or later! So that's 1-2+ days we are no longer available to take advantage of the weekly store coupon code.

    It was a nice thing for the whole community that is not as nice as it used to be.

    Bummer.

    It's generally posted on Fridays now, and you still have a week to use the code. As I understand it, you can only use the code once - so I don't quite understand your problem here. Whether you use it on Friday or on Tuesday, you can only use it once. It doesn't matter how much of a window there is for use as long as you remember to use the code in the proper window. I don't see a problem here.

    We have one less day available to us to log in and redeem the coupon. It's only a little thing, but it's a small shame. And no mention was made of the change, much less an explanation, so I thought I'd point it out the unfortunate trend in the hopes of countering it together.

    Cordovan did mention the change somewhere here in the forums. Basically, the person responsible left SSG, and Fridays were more convenient for the schedules of the other workers. I'm sorry, but this is not a problem. You're aware of it, and you have a week to log in and get it. It's not like this code disappears after fifteen minutes or something. There's absolutely nothing to counter - this is not something substantive.

    You're arguing something that I am not. In my first post I didn't stress how small this specific issue was, so I can understand the confusion there, but in the follow up I thought I was pretty clear.

    I said only what I meant, that this small change is indicative of an unfortunate trend. The slow, slight, but steady erosion of our experience as players/customers/community-members. Obviously SSG has fewer and fewer resources to devote to the game. That's understandable. It's still worth us monitoring and discussing if the experience we're having overall is getting better or getting worse. Our feedback may help them better allocate those limited resources to deliver better value to bring in more business.

    And again, the coupon code is not a crucial point that needs urgently addressed. I just felt it worth pointing out as a sign of the times. One more little tiny bit of value allowed to slip.

    I guess it would be nicer if they moved the coupon code time frame from Friday to Friday as well..... but then we would probably hear all the Europeans complain that this doesn't work for their time zone schedules!
