  1. Bullroarer Update 22 (Build #1)

    The lake doesn't feel very long on that map, how is that ingame?
  2. Well, that game is perfectly designed for so-called whales, so it probably won't blow up
  3. They should have sticked to a subscription only game with a store for fluff. Same with games these days. I pay 60 euro's for them and only have a part of the game. I'd prefer to pay 80 euro's and have the complete game.
  4. LotRO Dev Halt?

    I think they have such a small staff they will switch them between lotro and ddo - first an update for DDO, then an update for Lotro and so on, untill at least one of those titles will be unprofitable
  5. Amazon: Lord of the Rings for tv?

    I don't think this will work, the trilogy isn't that long ago, so it will always be compared with that. And people know how it will end. The story is just to well known for the larger audience. With GoT it's the first time it's on screen, the story is a surprise and it has a good amount of nudity and violence that is probably wanted by the viewers. LotR has none of those factors. If they want to adapt a fantasy serie, I'd go for the Sword of Truth, that has also enough violence in it, probably isn't well known to the public and only the first/ first and second book are tried to bring onscreen a couple of seasons ago. Or the hitchhiker's guide And personally i'd love to see A wheel of Time brought on screen, but that would need a lot of editting/rewriting since some parts would benefit from, let's say, making the story a little more compact...
  6. Mordor Trailer

    ah, that will be fun to use in the starter area's
  7. It is dead then. It's as I feared....

    Well, the focus on cosmetics could be a good one for a game like lotro, since games with a good background story attract more RP-ers and I think those are willing to spend more money on cosmetics/horses etc. But changing a subscription game to a F2P game is always a bad sign.

    I'm going to find a bow and try to shoot that way!
  9. Morder Pre-Purchase Packages Announced

    I just love MoL's reaction in one of the High Elf-lore-problems-discussion threads: "Better not take any Elves through any of the early content in Volume I, then, when everyone from Nazgul to Amarthiel puts the whammy on our characters, up to and including the cowering effect of Dread" Yeah, there are lore-problems with some of the content, so just skip that content...

    ehm, yes; Of course I mean PvmP

    Depends on why you play the game. I think as a singleplayer RPG where you can experience the world of Tolkien it's probably worth it. You get a lot of playtime for $40 If you're looking for endgame groupcontent, it isn't, that's where the age of the engine and the design flaws are most striking, same as PvE. But especially PvE was a added as a sidethought and I think endgame raids are also not very important for them, even though I enjoyed them when i still raided regularly. But then the game wasn't so outdated yet.
  12. Morder Pre-Purchase Packages Announced

    I used one for my warden on my 2nd lifetime account that I hadn't login into for 3 years, thinking I'd be ready to join endgame with an alt quickly. That was wrong

    They still haven't said anything about what is in Aria of the Valar, did they? I'm in doubt if I'm going to buy it, at least it will be the $40,- version. Which, if they included the High Elf, would be a reasonable price for an expansion. You get 10 extra lvl's (okay, you get access to them if you buy it or not, but that's not very usefull without the expansion), an instance cluster, a new race and a sort of new system/ reputation grind.
  14. Morder Pre-Purchase Packages Announced

    Yeah, but you still need to do those because of the class trait points (just as all west, central gondor, MT deeds, Osg. instance cluster, Big Battles etc...)
  15. Lawsuit over

    Depends on how strict the license is. The only after 3rd age stuff Tolkien wrote is in the appendices, and if I remember correctly, that is within the license. And if he writes "the land behind Mordor is filled with enemies and is called Harad/Rhun, they have can fill what is there with their own creativity. So I think it depends on only one thing: Is their income higher than their costs or not And we will probably see a lot more Middle-Earth-background-inspired games
