  2. LotRO Dev Halt?

    I dont think that community is large enough, at least among those that play video games, to make a game profitable in the long term. Sadly you need to appeal to those that dont care at all about the lore and just want stupid stuff like Shadow of Mordor. The LOTR fan base is that bit older, hence the good community, but that is not so good for a lore abiding game (even just following it a little like LOTRO did).
  3. LotRO Dev Halt?

    You think there will be another MMO set in Middle Earth once LOTRO eventually stops.
  4. LotRO Dev Halt?

    People have been predicting the end of LOTRO for over 7 years now since it went F2P in 2010.
  5. You think that leveling up a freep faster so that it is the same level as a creep is an advantage
  6. Even if that is the case exp scrolls offer you no advantage as Creeps are at max level
  7. Not in Lotro since you need to be near or at level cap for Freep
  8. I dont see faster leveling in Lotro as an advantage, it does not give you any benefits over other players.
  9. Microtransactions are here to stay, there is too much money in them. Loot boxes need to change so that there is nothing in them that gives an in game advantage. They should be full of cosmetics, mounts exp scrolls etc. I suspect most people would be ok with that, knowing that they are not going away.
  10. Amazon: Lord of the Rings for tv?

    This is interesting So it is a new story set in Middle-Earth, not the story of the ring. I wonder if they will use characters for the books or all new ones. They could do something with Aragon/Strider as a Ranger
  11. Amazon: Lord of the Rings for tv?

    If they are doing a TV show in Middle Earth I would rather they used the Silmarillion. There are some many stories that would work well on TV.
  12. Dont forget the part where you play against crappy players once you buy something so that you win making you think what you bought was what made you win, so you feel more inclined to buy again
  13. Activision has been grated a patent for a new matchmaking system that is designed to entice players to spend money on microtransactions. A quote from the patent "For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases," according to the patent. "For instance, the microtransaction engine may match a more expert/marquee player with a junior player to encourage the junior player to make game-related purchases of items possessed/used by the marquee player. A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player by obtaining weapons or other items used by the marquee player." http://www.rollingstone.com/glixel/news/how-activision-uses-matchmaking-tricks-to-sell-in-game-items-w509288 This is really taking the piss. Now they want to pair you up with people who have spend money, so you have a hard time competing so that you will go spend money. More quotes "In a particular example, the junior player may wish to become an expert sniper in a game (e.g., as determined from the player profile)," according to the patent. "The microtransaction engine may match the junior player with a player that is a highly skilled sniper in the game. In this manner, the junior player may be encouraged to make game-related purchases such as a rifle or other item used by the marquee player. " Doing so may enhance a level of enjoyment by the player for the game-related purchase, which may encourage future purchases," according to the patent. "For example, if the player purchased a particular weapon, the microtransaction engine may match the player in a gameplay session in which the particular weapon is highly effective, giving the player an impression that the particular weapon was a good purchase. This may encourage the player to make future purchases to achieve similar gameplay results." Social engineering to get people to spend money on microtransactions.
  14. Gorgoroth lootboxes additions: new shinies

    As long as there are loot boxes in game, and they will be their till the servers shut, it is better to have cosmetic stuff in them.
