Today Orion sheds some light on the design goals, implementation, and issues surrounding on of the most controversial systems in LOTRO, Radiance.

He goes on to lay out the idea of Radiance, which I agree sounds like a great idea as it was supposed to be more then a statistic but a concept that tied into traits, deeds, and skills.  However, this concept never came to fruition.

I find it refreshing for a company to not only correct their mistakes but fully admit and explain what happened that caused their mistakes.  Today’s diary does both and helps to further convince me that Turbine is trying to listen to its player base as they continue to work on the game that we all enjoy.  Head on over and read the article, it is pretty short and join in the discussion on the forums.

Here’s looking forward to more information on Echoes of the Dead!
