I have been playing LOTRO for over a year now. We just got our first retail expansion a couple months ago along with increasing the level cap. It's fantastic!
I played the beta and it was such a lore fest I would have cried. There was no pvp and everything was about storyline and roleplay.
There is pvp now, although most folks are still in Moria leveling up their characters, getting some new gear and exploring the new areas that are tons of fun.
Yes, it's a lore fest, that's the point of doing LOTRO in the first place. Following the lore according to Tolkien's writings. It's fun for those of us who love the stories and appreciate a true storyline to keep our characters involved in on a daily basis.
exactly. the no pvp thing was the reason i migrated from WoW. i want to play a role playing game, not some massive pissing contest with customizable action figures
what server? TS, kiri and i are in a kinship on nimrodel
and you don't have to give up your life to experience endgame in LOTRO
you mean like how wow is a really hardcore raiding game?
I don't even pvp that much in wow but I like the option to be there at (nearly) any time, instead of going into zones to do it and OH MY GOD THATS WHAT WOW HAS BECOME FUCK MY LIFE. (not sarcastic)
lvl 20 capt, going to be a long road
I play on Brandywine. I have 6 characters, 2 I actively play and the others I craft on and level up a bit here and there.
I've had a lot of fun in LOTRO over the past 14 months I've been playing, and I have no intention of ever quitting since I have a lifetime membership!
Yeah, I got sick of all the people constantly showing off their shiny new gear and looking down on my because I didn't have the time or desire to indenture myself in that way to the game.
I'm more of a fluff content lover.....housing, player mounts, fluff pets, etc. I just wish we had a few pets here that all characters could have. I miss my pet collection in WoW. And my fast mounts too.
OMG I CANT WAIT TO MISS THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1lc
haven't seen you on in a while bro!
I downloaded the trial for this game. Got to level 2 and my computer blue screened (it was having heat issues that day). I am too used to wow's perfect movement that this one kind of annoyed me. But it kind of made me want to play the game more because it was new.
Give it a chance, it definitely grows on you. If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere in which to play and adventure, LOTRO will certainly be your cup of tea in that department.
I found it so nice to not have to rush content and try to keep up with everyone else in the game. And even if I have just a little time to play I can always get things done on my characters. It's just a pleasure to play a game with that kind of atmosphere.
WoW was like that in a way when it first came out and that kind of feeling lasted about 6 months or so for me. Then the pressure was on to level fast, raid all the time and burn out from playing. No thanks, don't like that kind of pressure cooker.
I quit last Summer after about 6 months of play. In those 6 months I raided every dungeon they had and had the best gear my Hunter could get. It got rather boring after that. I'm tempted to try the Expansion but I really have no want to get into it again.
Lifetime membership means like 5 years?
lifetime= until they stop servicing the game
I actually considered the lifetime for this game and hellgate london, glad I didn't get either.
Not everyone is going to like every game out there. Which is exactly why there is such a wide variety of games to be had.
I'm glad I got it, I thoroughly enjoy it. I'm much more pve centric now than I was when I first started playing online games. Part of it is because no one can ever beat the RvR aspect of DAOC. I certainly don't want to return to that game, it's dead in the water now, but I swear if WoW had modeled their pvp more like DAOC's I probably would still be playing WoW.....I just got burned out on the raiding and the gear race.......
LOTRO is tons of fun, relaxed environment and got great communities to be a part of in the gaming world.
when I played LOTRO it was back on beta/release days and the horse paths were super choppy. are they still like that?
