A few days ago I wrote about the new “Session Play” being added to Lord of the Rings Online. One of the developers spent some time adding a little fluff to the game. They explained that it is but a small part of the upcoming content patch. The comments on the forums covered the entire range from praise to complaint. I can’t imagine what goes through the dev’s mind when they read this stuff. Must have thick skin I guess, because you can’t please them all.
BEST ADDITION EVER.
Now this is funny…I like it.
Surely this is a joke. Monster Play to introduce PvP is ok. Critter play is ridiculous.
I love it!!!!!!!!!!! I CANT WAIT!!!
Greatest… update… evar!!
You should spend more time on creating “real” content, not useless stuff like this.
A total waste of your time and mine.
I think this is a GREAT addition, something fresh and different that will enhance the experience.
Give us fluff, but there were plenty and plenty of good suggestions in the other official thread that make more sense than chicken play.
I am saddenned more and more every day that I paid for a lifetime subscription.
Of all the things that I would have used developer resources on this certainly would have never entered my mind.
I really don’t want to be a complete jerk, but I don’t like this addition at all. Playing as a chicken is the type of side-quest I’d expect to find in The Legend of Zelda or Pokemon.
Looking forward to this. Sounds like a fun diversion.
So I Guess I am not getting anything from the next Patch???
Given the problems currently with the game, this seems like the biggest waste of resources ever.
I’m sorry but agree this is a complete waste of resources at this point and baffles me.
It’s too early to waste time on stupid things like this.
I think this sounds like a fun diversion and something a little different. I say great job!
Sounds like a lot of fun…love the idea!
THIS is what the dev’s have been working on?
OMG this is seriously the coolest idea I have ever seen in an MMO.
Looks wicked, and a really original idea. Can’t wait to try it!
Wow, innovative and brilliant. Keep up the good work!
Couldn’t you thing of something better to do with your time and our money?
This is “Lord of the freaking Rings!” can’t we get something better than farm animal mode?
This sounds AWESOME!!! Can’t wait to be a chicken.
It’s going to be a blast and a great diversion from the serious tone of the game.
If, as it would appear, it is for real, Its a dumb idea.
Instead of Devs wasting their time making players play as chickens, why don’t you fix the issues with our current pets!
Something unexpected and new excellent can’t wait to try this out.
Probably the best update to any MMO I’ve played. Silly, but very very cool.
It’s a complete and utter waste of time and one of your coders is getting stoned more often than usual.
The devs should’ve focused on the more important things.
That is awesome.
I’m so glad this took priority over revamping the wound system and adding in class skills for 42-50!
This is probably the stupidest thing i have ever heard of being put into a game.
Whoever thought of this idea should be fired…
This has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever seen…really.
What a waste of developer skills…
This is an AWESOME idea!!
I wonder how devs ever come to understand what their players really want. I mean, you make 50% happy doing something and the other 50% think it was the biggest waste of time ever. Sounds like a fun job to me.
