Quite the Drama

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Wow, while I was busy with some IRL activities yesterday evening, the world exploded. Or that's what it might seem like from the alleged reaction on the forums. But that's typical. Honestly, this issue seems like something beyond Turbine's control. They were moving to a new data center and one thing going wrong or unnoticed could totally screw things up. It also seems the forums were brought down (after they were available once again) to curtail a flood of "What the heck is up Turbine!?!" posts. Currently the message reads:

Nimrodel and Gladden will be brought down at 1:00PM EST for a restart to correct performance issues. We expect to have them back online by 2:00PM EST!

We have temporarily disabled the LOTRO forums while we investigate an issue with logins. We'll update this message with more information. Thanks for your patience!

Some people get way too bent out of shape over this kind of thing. It's a game, people, not life. Heck, there are many people who overreact to things in life as well. I wonder if they're the same people that caused a fuss on the forums? So yeah, just cool it. I'm 100% sure everybody they can have is working non-stop trying to fix the problem.
