    I think you’ve failed to mention something quite astounding. SSG has pulled off what could be considered as one of the greatest long cons in gaming history. After 10 years of epic quests, fighting, grinding, picking up trash and dirty dishes, and carting items and messages from one end of middle earth to the other – SSG rewards you with… a giant lump of coal. That’s right, for your efforts over 10 years, here’s a giant piece of petrified fellbeast poop. As a bonus, you also get the “troll new player” emote so just like SSG, you can continue to troll and promote trolling of players for the rest of the game’s lifespan. And finally, let’s not forget, a whooping 5 LPs. Bravo /clap… thanks SSG, you got us real good.
