You two did great. Also, this title is appropriate not just for the season, but because we’ve been saying “It’s beginning to look a lot like Daybreak” for a while now while looking at SSG.

Hey Justin about Lotro and your 4 hot bars. A controller can easily cover that and more

A standard PS4 controller has 15 easily accessible buttons (4 direction pad, 4 face buttons, 4 triggers, 3 touchpad, L3 & R3). This give something like 32767 button combinations which is more than enough for a mere 4 hot bars.

If I recall correctly the way I did it on the steam controller was set L3 & R3 to switch between hotbars. Then a combination of trigger and rest of buttons so L1 +X, L 1+Y, L2 + X, L2 + Y etc etc to cover each different hotbar. There were other combinations to cover targeting and other things too specific to the steam controller that helped

It sounds clunky and to a degree it is. This is still on the pc UI with no native controller support after all. It helps that Lotro is not an action game and while it takes a bit of time to get used to the controller it’s pretty easy once you get into the swing of it.

All that said I have serious doubts that a company that can barely keep their servers online has the ability to put Lotro on any console. At least not without gobs of money and new talent coming to SSG.

Think amounts that would make Star Citizen feel poor and no one sane is going to give that to SSG. Attracting the talent to SSG would be an even harder sell given their current less than stellar reputation so yeah console Lotro not in my lifetime.

Clearly I can’t type or count one or the other or both. 17 easily accessible buttons to give the above combination count.

Agreed, it wouldn’t really be an issue.

I feel like they always forget Final Fantasy XIV exists when Eliot’s not on the podcast. Haha.

FFXIV can be played with a controller and utilizes tons of hot bar space.

Chiming in on Bree’s observation about mid-level MMOs’ disappearing, the same thing happened with studio movie budgets. Giant spectacles or nothing.

Unfortunately I think the first half of 2021 is going to be a lot like the first half of 2020. (Hopefully 2022 will start out right.)
