Last night I casually glanced at my status bar whilst on my freep and saw that the PVE buff for freep control of the Ettenmoors was active. That wasn’t too surprising, after all the mitigation bug has meant that there are very few creeps around these days on my server and thus the map has a propensity to be in freep hands. In short there is more chance of action in a nun’s knickers than in the Ettens at the moment. I digress though.
I read the tooltip for this buff and was floored by the irony contained in it. Take a look at the screenshot below:
The first line read: “Battles go well in the Ettenmoors“. You bet your arse they do! If you’re a freep that is.
The real killer though is this line: “All the Free Peoples there benefit from these good tidings“. It’s hard not to imagine that line referencing the current mitigation bug. Just for a moment imagine that that is what it means … you better believe all the Free Peoples would benefit from such ‘good tidings’.
