Apparently this has been going on since Saturday 10/19 but I only learned about it myself this morning.
A live event protesting the removal of Hearts of Wood from the Epic trader in The Twelve
Dozens (hundreds? There are three Marketplace instances) of players massed on the Wayfinder server protesting the upcoming changes to Reincarnation acquisition.
Tolero’s recent posts acknowledge that Turbine is aware of the unhappiness about the proposed change in the way that Hearts of Wood are procured in-game, but she has only specified changes in the amounts of Valor Commendations that will be needed. Which is not at all what the protesters on Wayfinder are after, they want to retain the ability to buy them with Tokens of the Twelve.
I suspect that the protesters are in for a long session of heartbreak. But I admire their tenacity and their creativity, this method of protest is much more interesting than useless forum flames and petitions.
I hope they win. I don’t expect it, but I hope for it. So much so that I’ll be joining them. It may be tilting at a windmill, but some windmills simply must be tilted.
Power to the (Heroic) people! Da Man can not keep us down!
