  1. Look for a kin that suits your needs. That is, if you don't have time, I assume that you mean you don't get to play that often? Look for a kin then that's not focused on things like raiding but instead more on other stuff like questing, for example.

    Edit: Well, apart from what the others suggested. I just think that there might also be a suiting kinship for you out there on top of the problem you have with finishing group quests. ;)

  2. Geld haben sie schon. Aber genau das wollen sie auch behalten. B)

    Ich finde, Kerindor trifft es ganz gut. Da haben wir ein Feindbild, das nehmen wir. Ich höre im Englischen jetzt aber keinen russischen Akzent heraus. Wenn sie ihn unbedingt so darstellen wollen, sollte der Akzent immer dabei sein. Oder nirgendwo. Aber so wirkt es unstimmig und auch seltsam. Meistens will man ja was damit aussagen, wenn man einen Charakter mit einem bestimmten Akzent versieht. In diesem Fall ist es aber wohl eher Zufall? Sehr seltsam.

    Editiert, da falsche Wortwahl. ;)

  3. Yep, probably better to either ask in the Turbine forums or via twitter. Although I'm not sure we'd get an answer. It would be interesting to know what's wrong about this, though. I never heard any complaints about anything being broken or unplayable as a result. So where's the harm?

    In the end, I can say that no matter what I think about Codemasters, I really loved the atmosphere the community management team created. I've never seen anything like that in any other MMO and I'm sad to then read that part of their activities were "unauthorised" and Turbine apparently looks down on something like that.

  4. I've always thought that LotRO is exceptionally panicky when it comes to servers and the chance/risk of them crashing. It's happened in other games and we survived. Usually, most of the characters survived as well or found themselves at a resurrection point afterwards. ;)

    Unauthorised does sound a bit condescending, though. Bad little children. Baaaad!

  5. Ich hab gerade ein Abo für Star Trek Online laufen. Solange Perfect World jetzt nicht auf einmal die Spiele abschaltet, kann ich da ein bisschen rumgammeln (und wenn doch, dann geht's halt zu Guild Wars. Man hat ja mittlerweile genug Auswahl an Spielen ;)).

  6. Oh, I'd just read that posting on the forum and really liked it! Very nice comparisons, especially. :) I also hadn't noticed the topic's locked already. It was only a matter of time, though, I guess? Funny explanation, though. Because the discussion is spinning in circles, it gets closed. And agree to disagree? An official statement would have been nicer (although I don't think we'll ever get one).

  7. Our kin leader is a RL friend of mine whom I met online several years ago. We had met in a forum and had decided to meet in RL (it was an international forum and all of those from Germany met up - one half of the group had also previously met online and then became friends in RL and the other half consisted of me and two others whom I'd also met online previously and then in RL ;)).

    Said kin leader currently has another of our kin members and two people with whom we've been in a kin before visiting her. They're from the Netherlands, UK and Finland. I'm going to meet them later this week and am excited as I always am when I'm meeting people in RL. So far, almost all of those meetings I've done have been great and only strengthened the friendships. :*)

    My character name kind of stuck from way back when we were in the international forum. Everybody had shortened my name there to "Mia" and as it sounds like a real name, it quickly became a nickname that some people still use to call me. I don't mind that, though. :)

  8. Oooh, I love stats. ^^

    I guess it's not too surprising to see Germany on the top, right? I think I remember Maneki saying that the EU LotRO community consists of quite a lot of Germans. :)

    Either way, I'm glad there's this place now. Especially after hearing some stories of why people were told off after posting something on the official Turbine forums. }:|

  9. Nope, I don't think they deleted any old accounts. Never heard of it being done, at least. Maybe you have to log on first before the characters appear on that website. And... erm... maybe you also have to have put something into the Hall of Monuments which you can only do with Eye of the North. Oops. ;)

  10. You can use http://hom.guildwars2.com/en/ to check... I hope. ^^ Enter your character's name and if it exists, it should show you what your account has already earned for GW2. But it might be easier to check for your characters' names that way than in the game.

  11. Have you taken screenshots in the past, by any chance? I always go screenshot-crazy in most games, so finding one with the name of my character in it isn't exactly difficult for me. ;)

    @Character slots: If anybody plans to buy one, wait another week. This week, Eye of the North is on sale. Next week (starting on June 2, ca. 9pm GMT+1) should be character slots (50% off the regular price). I don't have a source for it right now but ArenaNet had announced it somewhere.

  12. But Eye of the North is an addon. You don't need an extra character slot for that. :) And your characters can enter as soon as they're level 10. They also get their first hero NPCs over there which are level 20 which helps a lot. And your character's attributes are pushed up to level 20 when you're lower than that and in the addon content.

    I'm mostly playing GW like it was a single-player game. I enjoy my PUG-free time (mostly used it to escape from stupid people when I was still playing WoW). ;)

    I've only played the endless trial thingy of AoC before. The combat system confuses me but all in all, it seems like a nice game. I'm just not sure it's really something for me. Which makes the f2p-version pretty attractive.

  13. In case you haven't gotten Eye of the North yet: It's currently on sale for 9 Euros at NCSoft's online store. No idea how much it'd cost in a regular store. ;)

    Does anybody know if AoC's women characters are still weaker? Or were they ever really weaker? Was it a bug? Before I give it a try, I'd like to be sure that having a woman isn't the wrong choice. ^^

    @Highreborn: I don't remember where I read it, but I know I saw somebody who'd said that his/her account was labelled as "frozen" but s/he could still play the game.

  14. I like Twitter for getting updates or interesting links. It's not such a nice tool to have a real discussion over (thanks to the character limit). ^^

    If you only want to use it for participating in stuff like that, it's even easier. Just sign up, "follow" the interesting accounts ("follow" is a button you just click - and when you're following certain accounts, those entries will appear on your twitter's homepage) and whenever something like this now appears, you click on "retweet" on that entry and it's done (when you're logged in to your own Twitter account, hover over the entry and you'll see the link for "retweet").

    Example: http://twitter.com/#!/lotro :)

    I've seen them do stuff like that more often. Both Codemasters and Turbine. So if you're not absolutely opposed to using Twitter but would like a chance to win Turbine Points, then it's not too bad. I find it rather easy to use.

  15. But, at PAX East they let the cat out of the bag. At least, that's how I read it.

    Yes, that's how I understand it as well. I mean, that whole stuff about "the players say they will leave but they won't" is stupid. Yes, we might not leave. But we're also not happy customers and how's that good for the future of a game? *sigh*

  16. http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?396285-New-Store-Only-Relics

    The other thread was merged into that one, I think (at least, starting with page 3, the subject line reads "Turbine has crossed the line").

    Interesting read, by the way.

  17. 3D ist dooooof. Davon wird mir speiübel. Ich kann aber auch Ego-Shooter aus dem Grund nicht spielen. Star Wars Galaxies im Weltall geht auch nicht. Doofer Kopf. }:|

    Aber immerhin spare ich so Geld. Weniger Spiele, die ich kaufe. Weniger Kino. ;)

  18. I honestly feel like such a "n00b". I hadn't even known that the epic quest line gives such nice items! And receiving THE gloves was a nice final touch. So thanks again for mentioning them here. ;)

    The only level 65s I have are a runekeeper and a warden. Too bad they can't play together. ;)

  19. Ooooh. Ja, das mit dem "Ansehen" im Profil hatte ich nicht gesehen.

    Wir hatten diese Spielerei damals trotzdem nicht abgeschaltet. Meistens war das auch kein Problem. Auf der anderen Seite ist natürlich die Frage, was es bringt. Wenn es nur einzelne Postings gewesen wären, fände ich es besser.

    Edit: Schön, man kann seine Stimme in 'ner Umfrage löschen und seine Meinung ändern. :)
