LotRO Dev Chat Coming Up!

Another Stratics IRC LotRO Dev Chat is just around the corner! Be there on Wednesday, March 11 at 8pm EDT (-4 GMT).

If you've never participated in one before, here is how to join:
  • Start your IRC client of choice (I usually use mIRC)
  • In the Options pop up window that appears, enter your information.
  • Go to the Servers menu under the Connect heading (the first one)
  • Click Add
  • For Description I just called it Stratics IRC, it doesn't really matter
  • Under IRC Server put "irc.stratics.com" (without quotes)
  • In Ports put 6668
  • Click Add
  • With Stratics IRC (in my case) highlighted, click Select
  • Click Connect
  • After a short while mIRC will spazz out and a mIRC Favorites window will pop up
  • In the top field enter "#straticshoc" (without quotes)
  • Click Join
  • Have fun!

These instructions are for mIRC, since that's the client I use. However I expect other clients operate similarly.

Alternatively you can go to the Java chat on the Stratics website, with no pesky additional clients needed (you'll need Java installed though). I've never had much luck with this, so I'm not sure you'll be able to log the chat, so make sure you copy and paste before exiting.

A good idea is to have some questions ready beforehand, just type them up in Notepad so you can copy and paste them into the chat. This way you won't waste time typing and you know you won't mistype and screw up your question. Make sure to delete them if they've already been asked!

I'll see you there!
