    Legendary Servers = Failed Experiment?

    Something like that. Havent been on in a long while, did little river or whatever is next launch yet? Currently doing some D3 in my rare spare time, no time for an MMO and surely no time for Lotro. I think if finally finally died for me. SoA and MoM were its last hurrah with me

    Legendary Servers = Failed Experiment?

    Havent played in a month, SoM just didnt make me want to keep playing, I'd love to pop in on a rare day off today and say hello to what's left of my kin, but I'd have to drop $15 for that. I knew the LSs would definitely run their course for me, Im just not sure if Im surprised that it ended so soon or if I lasted that long.
  3. I really dont want to wade into this quagmire, but that wrestling pic that is a biological female that wants to wrestle against MALES but isnt allowed, and far as equal pay our (Im American) women's team is heads and shoulders above our men's mess and probably deserves more pay, they actually win games. I do not follow traditional football, but Im pretty sure our men's team has never made it out of the first round (if thats the correct terminology) whereas our women's team is 4? times WC champs? I have no idea who pays theys players, but strictly speaking US Women's Soccer >>> US Men's. When you wade into other sports, they are strictly capitalistic ventures and no way could the WNBA command NBA salaries, attendance and other figures prove it, but with the US National Soccer Teams the opposite is totally true
  4. If they are like kinder eggs and kinder eggs are illegal...his arguement is invalid 🤣
  5. Kinder Eggs are illegal in the States
  6. I thought I read somewhere that Mirk launched this week. My kin's discord is quiet and havent seen any posts here about it. Kind of like "if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it does it make a sound?"

    Did Mirk actually launch?

    Haha, thought I also read someplace that mob difficulty was adjusted levels 61-80 something. Ill be lucky if I get on before Sunday and my Warden which Ive ignored at kin request for moar healers is just 57. Now of course we have 12 level capped RKs and an handful of minnies making my RK a waste of time. Looks like Ill have Moria all to myself

    Goss for Doro - The Arnor Scene

    Mxiio was in my kin, the guy is an OCD completionist. Not surprised to see him leading this charade

    "Legendary" Mirkwood

    They worked for me for a while, I know where the game is now with those servers has probably run their course. I took a long break and tried to come back with a few toons 85 to 90 and hitting that imbued LI wall was the end of it for me. I gave the LS a try and they were fun, with my sub just re-upped it looks like I will be headed to Mirkwood but cant say much for after that. Great River was the biggest disappointment at that time and it still will be today

    Update 24

    My kin's discord is saying that FPS is massively improved with 64bit client, reporting 120 or more FPS in 21st Hall. Wont be able to presonally try it until the weekend

    Update 24

    Lots of changes!! What is the over/under for taking the game down in the next 3 days for a fix?

    Wow Sapience did a real job on me

    I have very limited interactions with Cordovan, but like you after a long hiatus came back to a banned forums account from you know who. At least Sap and Celestwata gave me a "normal" ban and was able to have that overturned, along with a brief, friendly message from Cord. I dont recall the name of the CM before him who also visited here, as that guy ignored all my requests to have my ban revisited, but Cord was on it in less than 2 days. For all of the faults of Lotro and possible Cord himself, its the little things that can make it a tiny bit of difference

    Any idea when this goes live? Or is it too far from complete to make it to the game (which means next patch of course)

    Help for a Returning Player

    Personally if you really want to play this game, you'd go back to a Legendary Server, you are so far behind and the awaiting LI grind is fucking moronic. It is the reason I quit the live servers, I too took a decent chunk of time off and when I returned (main toons 65-80 range) the LI grind was beyond stupid. Yea starting over sucked in a way, but no way is nearly sucky as what's ahead if you stay on your current server. While the LS definitely have their faults, and a fuckton of them, it is far superior to trying to start at those middle levels on live plus if you stay on the LS you have the hope of them fixing the LI swamp before the LS gets there. ' It's been discussed here, MMOs are a dying breed, the pickings are slim so Im going to fart around on LOTRO as long as its around and will probably never set foot in another MMO after EDIT: I reread your post and see you have 30k in TP, I'd buy the instant level 50 and go straight to Moria. The game is easy enough that you will have no trouble there and can go back for virtues (if you even care) after you have leveled

    Other MMOs?

    Being a long time gamer, but pretty uninterested lately Im yearning for a new game. My son, also a gamer since he was old enough (would that be bad parenting or good??) is on his way home from his first year in college this week and asked me if I was still playing LOTRO. He mentioned he and his friends want to try an MMO and was asking me about them. My son has had a F2P account on LOTRO in the past, but his one friend is dead fast against LOTRO was asking me about others. Ive dabbled in GW2, and ESO not much to my liking though. He mentioned the Star Wars MMO, is that any good? Part of me wishes they would play LOTRO as starting an established MMO for the first time generally sucks and I could reroll with them on the not so Legendary Servers and not feel totally lost and out of place. Any suggestions?

    Other MMOs?

    Yes their choice, no real issues with it, but I for one will probably never play another MMO again this side of the remains of LOTRO. Like stated by others the grind required just to catch up with the current state of any long running MMO is beyond what Im willing and able to put into it. Would have loved to have game with my son and his friends, a great group of guys, the last time we gamed together was their brief stint into D3 two or three summers ago

    This is gonna hurt SSG

    Other MMOs?

    They are leaning towards WOW, I wont follow them there, I will definitely muck around on lotro for the time being especially to see the utter destruction if that loot box ban law passes
  19. This is on the LS, Anor. Yes my kin WAS one of the spammer kins (which thankfully stopped a good month ago). Good mix of causal and hardcore players, quite a few that have been around a while, some still play live servers, many are old school returning for one last shot. Like I was stating above, I'd bet its a good snapshot of the server overall with better than 80% that stopped in and gave it a shot now long gone. Did a Turtle PUG a few days back and it was good to see that Doro character there
  20. I havent done any of these raids before the make over, but half kin/half pug smoked the turtle, and only took 3 tries to get the watcher strat down. We took that half and half into DN and cruised to Flagit, but some people are just too stupid to do the eye mechanic and stop attacking at the right time so after numerous tries I had to bail as it was getting late. It was enjoyable and not insanely hard, kind of in the right spot to allow for some pugs and non hardcore players to run some of this. As for me my RK is over the cap on tact mastery, just below on crit, and way too low Morale wise and fared well. As a middle of the road player it kind of all just felt where it should be. Hardcore raiding kins will find this too easy and a slap in the face, not sure if there are T2 and T3 yet to make up for it
  21. Which is probably representative of the LS as a whole, maybe 75-80% of the players that started it are no longer active. They probably made a few gold coins the first month or 2, but wonder now if the remaining players are worth the effort they have to put into it (which is shitty at best)
  22. Of the remaining active players in my large kin on the LS, a large majority still play live, a big handful are those (myself included) who used to play, and a small, small percentage are actual new players. If my kin was an accurate representation of the server as a whole, about 80% were current players anyway, about 19% are old players giving it one last shot, and the remaining 1% are actually new players. To be generous to the SSG I'd guess maybe 15-20% of LS players are "new" money, money they would not be making without the LS. My kin is fucking huge, 22 pages of characters, but I'd guess 19 of those pages are players that have not logged on since long before Moria dropped, so right there 80% of my kin which formed at launch doesnt play anymore

    Moria soon on LS?

    Does anybody follow +Cord of the rings (is it a blog or a podcast??)? Its been mentioned on my kin's discord that there was a part of it concerning Moria on the LS. I dont remember exact quote but it alluded to Moria happening sooner than later and some suggesting before the end of the month. Like predicted, SoA landscape is getting dull and losing players fast. Part of me wants Moria ASAP, and another part of me that just started an RK wouldnt mind a few more weeks to level him and get a few rifts out of him

    Has anybody seen this?

    Moria soon on LS?

    Ahh thats the emote from the 3.5K TP bundle? I was wondering what the fuck that was from, constantly filling my chat panel in the 21st. I got a tidy little sum of TP stored up, I sure as hell aint blowing on dwarf candles and an emote Saw an LFF 1/3 for the watcher, brought that up in kin chat and was told it was solo'd by a bear...
