Servers closing on December 31, 2020.

313 posts in this topic

I'm assuming the server shutdown would be PST timezone since I'm currently located on SEA GMT+8 that's why I'm concerned with this.

Can someone at least confirm if it would be on Pacific Time?

Hi! 2 dlc trophies will be unobtainable! Lord of the ring and the hunt is my mistress. They both use online leaderboards

Please stop spreading misinformation.

Multiple people have confirmed through playtesting that the dlc trophies are obtainable offline.

No one knows what time they will shut it down so best to play it safe and do it today. Though I wouldn't be surprised if they do it like the Mad Max server shutdown and actually shut them down mid-day on Monday the 4th (particularly since the 1st is a holiday in many countries), but I wouldn't rely on it being extended that far.

They pop up randomly. If you keep going, doing side missions (feasts, duels etc.) and keep advancing time, then one will show up soon.

Is the server still up? It's Dec.31 1:36AM here right now. I'm refreshing the Latest Achievers of the trophy here but it seems like no one's getting it anymore.

The kind soul who, after the servers are closed and this is all done, intends to counts the same questions over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again, and post here in the thread for all of us to see and laugh and tell our grandsons about it, is a soul who will go straight to heaven.

Take a peek at the map legend too with R1, that shows the shape of the icon on the map for online vendetta missions so it will make it easier to find among all the other orange side missions. You could also try dying, that may help someone else out by spawning an online vendetta for them and it advances time and reshuffles the board more than advancing time at a forge tower.

Just chipping in on my experience in case anyone (like I was) is on the fence about starting so late:

 

I started getting Vendetta missions after doing the third mission (where you meet the friendly orc and you must protect him). I did NOT forge all towers, after forging a random one after completing the third mission it then said "Vendetta available". I died and it immediately gave me another Vendetta to avenge the same person (but a different location). Completed this and straight after it gave yet another vendetta. 

Took less than 2 hours to get it done. The game seems good so go ahead and do it before you cannot tomorrow.

Seems most people start getting them immediately after completing the first Ratbag mission. This is exactly where they popped up for me on the standard and GOTY versions.

I just got the Repaid In Blood trophy a little while ago (21:25 GMT). Did 4 main missions, a few side missions, then the vendettas became available.

I just got it, vendetta missions started spawning for me after 7 story missions and closing and restarting the game because I panicked a bit. Did one story missions and one instantly spawned, a level 10 captain who killed someone on my friends list. Then got another,  and another soon after that so seems they are still up and spawning.

Got the Vendetta on GOTY as of Dec.31 6:10AM GMT+8 / Dec.30 2:10PM Pacific Standard Time.

If this is Pacific Time, then we have less than 10 hours to get the trophy before Dec 31st.

Good luck to those who will attempt it.

I've done it on all five versions.

I did the original vanilla on Xbox forever ago so I don't remember much about it.

Even though it was only in the past few days I already don't remember when Xbox GotY unlocked but I do know it asked me to kill for a random friend that had never played before. All other versions after people that had played it were the ones I was "avenging".

Both Steam and vanilla PS4 the first Vendetta popped after I had done the three Gollum quests and the second Outcast story quest. Roughly two hours from start of the game.

PS4 GotY it popped as early as the first Ratbag quest. This is only 45 minutes into the game if you skip all the cutscenes.

So the Vendetta mission trophy is the only online one, right? Or will the server closedown affect some of the other stuff too, like other missions etc?

This is secretly a Battle Royale game and all the enemies in the game are controlled by other players. Once the servers shut down the game will cease to function.

 

Seriously though, it's just the Vendetta trophy.

After server closure can we transfer our orc army from Mordor to Shadow of war?

A little mix of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder today so can anyone tell me what trophies will be affected by this shutdown? Can I still get the 100% after the servers go down? I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere even after 10 pages and 247 posts.

Posted on external sites:
 

WB Games support clarified to TA community member NessNoldo saying that both the Lord of the Ring achievement and the Hunt is my Mistress achievement require the game's online leaderboards to unlock and would be discontinued after the server shutdown.
 

Vendetta missions are being discontinued:
Repaid in Blood - Complete a Vendetta Mission.
 

You need to qualify for the elite leaderboards for these:
Lord of the Ring - Complete all objectives in the Test of The Ring.
The Hunt is my Mistress - Complete all objectives in the Test of the Wild.
 

All 3 achievements will break on December 31st! This was confirmed by the devs on Nov. 30th.


I'm speechless.
