Since Turbine runs both games, I thought this would be relevant to post. Turbine’s other MMO, Dungeons and Dragons Online, which recently switched to a ‘free to play’ model has been having trouble of late with their customer’s account information. Just two days ago, April 12, DDO introduced the new ‘Offer Wall’ which would allow people to get more Turbine points (In DDO, played can buy/spend Turbine points in order to gain access to different parts of the game, certain gear, etc) for ‘free’. ‘Free’ is never free of course. Apparently, Turbine used a company called SuperRewards, which is infamous on the internet for spreading malware and generally spamming people a lot. Unsurprisingly, this happened to many DDO players who even clicked on the Offer Wall link. Here is a link to the Massively.com article on the subject.
Yesterday, Patience posted on the DDO boards explaining what went wrong and what they are doing o fix it:
Here is Patience’s post with a list of the rules: Offer Wall Rules.
Here’s hoping nothing like this comes LOTRO’s way anytime soon.
Marketroid has made a post on the DDO forums saying they are taking down the Offer Wall, getting all the e-mail address deleted from the Super Rewards system and more or less thinking about their decisions on people’s privacy more.
This is a gathering of some helpful gambit graphs, charts and lists that may make memorizing the wide variety of warden skills easier.
