  1. I must be part of the exception, then. Having played ESO in the past year, I find that combat system to be less rigid than LOTRO's. If a new MMO had play mechanics that were an obvious improvement, I'd strongly consider moving, despite my lifetime investment (which has already paid for itself several times over). My only hesitation would be the ownership of that MMO by south Asian interests, which have a different business model than American and European game companies. I got burned during the City of Heroes shutdown by NCSoft (at the game's peak, not its decline), and I'm not eager to repeat that experience. I love seeing Tolkien's world in digital form, but that wouldn't override my standards.
  2. Fundin, is that you? You never seem to be able to see an end to the game?
  3. Every so often, it's nice to see justice in iambic pentametre.
  4. Oh, I completely disagree. I was laughing my head off. 🤣
  5. I remember that first-hand. That was a major lie, one that Ricky did everything he could to hide from public view (up to and including bans).
  6. Too bad there isn't a Talislanta MMO. No elves. 😀

    Vastin Takes a Dig at Dissatisfied Customers

    As someone who signed on to blue line early (before it was "cool"), I noticed the changes right away. When I played blue, I relied heavily on critical damage, speed and focus generation as ways to buff damage, using a little red line to do so. When they moved Deadly Precision very far down the red tree, rather than near the top, that did slow me down a bit. Having a longer Barrage cool-down didn't really help, either, especially as I used to turn on Rapid Fire and alternate between Barrage, Penetrating Shot and Merciful Shot for quick kills. Yes, I have more healing options than before, but I shall miss the way I used to be able to hit fast and hard while on-the-move.

    Christopher Tolkien retired from estate

    First, the LotR licensing is done through Middle-earth Enterprises, not the Tolkien Estate. Second, Middle-earth Enterprises (FKA Tolkien Enteprises, not related to the Tolkien Estate) has not gone the way of GW's model at all. While, like GW, they license to anyone with a pulse, unlike GW, they don't put any real IP quality control behind their decisions, focusing instead on the return-of-profits for licensing. Laurie Battle of MEE, said it quite plainly, in an interview (cf. Other Hands Magazine, Issue 10/11) with Professor Chris Seeman, noted Tolkienologist and publisher of the Other Hands fanzine (before MEE shut him down without mercy): So, unless MEE has changed its focus since that interview, they will be unequipped and, frankly, uninterested in pursuing GW's model.

    LOTRO Crickhallow Discord

    It's Crickhollow.
  10. That reminds me. I forgot to use the term "narcissistic". Thank you for necessitating its use, by your predictable responses. Oh, that's quite impossible to believe. Your posting history shows a complete lack of restraint in that regard.
  11. If you are able to do so, I would ask that you examine what I said in context. You said: This was something you, posted right after my comment concerning the chilling of expression on the forums and my recommendation that people leave it behind, and it was, in part, reactionary to what I had said. I said, as a part of my reply: You had a flawed perception of why I come here. I chose to correct it. Here is a ladder, by which you may dismount from your horse. It seems a bit high.
