Lord of the Rings Online wants to know what you want from your VIP sub
Never say the devs aren’t listening: Standing Stone Games apparently is.
Lord of the Rings Online forumgoers learned this lesson today when in a player-started thread from April about VIP subscription benefits, SSG RedPanda piped up to request even more feedback.
“I just wanted to pop in and say hi and let you know that we are definitely interested in hearing more ideas on these things,” RedPanda writes. “We’re not promising anything but we are here to listen.” In fact, the studio rep specifically asks what players want from gold and silver Hobbit presents (and what they don’t want) as well as what, beyond cosmetics, players want out of their VIP monthly gift.
So far, players are suggesting aids to reduce grinding, improve alting, and eliminate junk like low counts of potions; the community wish list also includes marks, mithril coins, experience-boosting skills, and special furniture. A few players have expressed boredom with cosmetics and minipets, too. If you play, make sure to hop over and take the mic.
