Quello che e’ successo ieri ha veramente dell’incredibile.
|14.57 – All servers back online!
Following our recent hardware issues we are delighted to report that all our servers are now back online. We would like to once again thank you for your fantastic support and patience during this time and we re-iterate our apologies for the disruption to your Early Access game time. Please remember to visit the forums for full details and updates regarding this outage and the game service moving forwards. The game service forums are located at this link.
L’importante, ora, e’ che una cosa del genere non accada mai piu’. Anche perche’ e’ di una rarita’ impressionante. E’ proprio vero che se la fortuna e’ cieca, la sfiga ci vede benissimo.
Ma ora passiamo alla parte piu’ prpriamente ludica dell’aspetto: i post e i reply divertenti. La comunita’ di The Lord of the Rings Online, sotto questo aspetto, e veramente da favola!
partiamo dal primo, un’ironica e sarcastica battuta al solito cretino che dice che tutti i MMORPG sono delle beta viventi:
The following is NOT aimed at Codemasters as I find their way of handling this release quite good.
In an office, somewhere in japan…
Coporate Management Person 1: "Look there’s Splen. The perfect custumer. He actually accepted the idea about crappy MMO launches being a natural thing."
Coporate Management Person 2: "Yes we need people like him on the forums to hype the idea so people come to accept that we cut corners in our budget and release unfinished games"
Coporate Management Person 1: "It’s wonderful. Beta never ends. Just my words. Beta never ends, that’s the new trends, keep giving us your money, suck my dirty thumb honey… when we rape your sense of good business conduct"
Coporate Management Person 2: "Haha that’s classic… the fools will never know what thit them. At this pace we can have them pay for basic support in a few years"
Coporate Management Person 1: "YES! And they should pay for community communication too!"
Coporate Management Person 2: "TRUE! And teh forum accounts should be charged too for each post!"
Somewhere else on a game forum
Splen: "NOOBS, this is a beta… MMOs are always beta… consider yourselves lucky that the developers kindly let you pay to play this game."
Poi una giocatrice (o giocatore, vallo a sapere) francese ricorda i bei tempi su RF Online:
|CM is very good at keeping their community updated when there is a problem. I’ve already experienced this with RF Online. That’s a change compared to a company I’ll not name (say it starts with a B ends in a D and is a wind of some sort) ^^
Hardware stuff takes some time to be fixed, it’s just a matter of patience, servers’ll be up soon now, just give the tecchies some time to :
Eccone uno molto "IT Manager":
|Many of us have jobs full of stress and we need a chuckle now and then. The following stress relievers are offered:
1. Press any key to continue or any other key to quit. . . ??
AND, ADMITTEDLY COPIED:
Per finire eccone uno "ambientato" nella Terra di Mezzo:
|Guess nobody checked the Eriadorian calendar then.
It’s a vault holiday.
(Similar to Bank holidays but Dwarves couldn’t understand what the side of a river had to do with gold.)
Orcs are sunning themselves on on the banks of the Midgewater Marshes whilst the Goblins dabble their little tootsies in the water whilst pulling the wings of the Sickle Flies.
Frodo, Gandalf, Merry,Sam & Pippin are all doped up on pipeweed they knicked from farmer Maggot & are going slightly pink in the hazy sun, mainly due to Sam forgetting to pack the sun cream (factor 30 – Hobbits blister easily). Gandalf is wearing the obligated Wizards Knotted Hanky (3 silver from any reputable Supplier)
Elrond is tooking into a ’99 Flake with Aragorn, who’s having an ice pop. Arewyn is seductively eating a Magnum (dark Ettenmoors chocolate version) & giving Boromir the eye. (Striders noticed & is non-to-happy let me tell ya!)
Gimli & Legolas have hit the pub. Prancing Pony to be exact but have noticed a serious amount of stutter when in Bree but aren’t sure if it’s alcohol related or not.
Sauron & the Witch King are playing a very slow game of chess under the sun canopy on the Witch King’s balcony. (B&Q supplied – 4s 6c inc Free Delivery by Cave troll).
Sauron’s not too chuffed as his batteries on his mp3 player have just died & his charger doesn’t fit the plug in his chambers either. (Forgot the bloody travel adaptor again) The Witch Kings voice annoys him so.
Denethorn & Faramir are kite flying off the top of Minas Tirith. Faramir keeps edging his dad closer to the edge though……patience lad…patience!
All normal services will be resumed tomorrow.
Non sono mancate nemmeno le immagini, eccone due scelte a caso:
(notare come la seconda sia un’amena perculata della pubblicita’ televisiva del gioco)
