  1. It is only if you have profanity filter on, so I have never noticed this before. Is it standard for all names of games or just this one?
  2. Great to hear. Hope it carries on being fun. I am loving it too

    Thanks to my mum being left some money and wanting to cheer me up (long story short DWP are screwing me out of my PIP which is my car and lifeline and the took it by twisting and lying about the whole interview) she has got me an amazing gaming laptop but that isn't what is funny (it is now I have sorted it after a day and evening of pain trying to sit and sorting it) It has a RTX 2080 Super but when I went on LotRO I was getting 20 FPS on top settings. This was after managing to sort out the problem of not loading due to no Direct X9 then only showing Direct X9 in the settings) so I reformatted and downloaded everything twice and had the same issue. Then a kind soul in chat sorted it. It was using for some stupid reason the on board tiny Intel GFX card not the beast! Now I am a happy chap as getting 250-300 FPS on ultra, just need to be in bed all day now from sitting on my painful bit all day! PJ

    New World

    That’s the chap. It does seem reading through comments that it wasn’t going to be an MMO to start with and people preferred the original product. I am enjoying it though but I don’t play hardly any games at all apart from LotRO so maybe if I did more my enjoyment would be less. No subscription just the original cost plus a dreaded store but hopefully that won’t be too bad

    New World

    Anyone else trying the preview week of this new Amazon Games MMO? I am and loving it so far. Amazing graphics and good fun. talking of which I am only getting 30-40FPS but it is buttery smooth, is that because the game engine is a lot newer than LotRO? been put back to May next year but have pre ordered so will get access to future closed beta.
  7. I thought pvp was banned from happening due to the people who grant the LotR licence not allowing it? Isn’t this what some people have wanted for years? Why not do this before?
  8. Surely if this brings in new players and gets some old players back this is a good thing? Have any other MMOs done this? Sometimes it is good to see things at face value and not try and over think anything devious has happened. Just a nice gesture in dark times.
  9. Or it could be logins when you put your username and password in initially?

  11. Did they even open or was it just to get the update?
  12. Nice to see the servers opened earlier than announced
  13. So if they knew 2 weeks ago why didn’t they do something about it?
  14. Odd, when I checked it last week it was one of those cheep search engine sites that take over once famous domains.

    Other MMOs?

    I enjoyed playing Star Wars and at the moment am playing Final Fantasy XIV which is amazing IMHO
  16. For £10 a year surely it would have been worth them keeping it up. I see it is now a search type thing now.
  17. It’s for people who have played recently not for salty sea hags who haven’t played for years ??

    In FFXIV? Still smooth and lag free (apart from when I kicked the laptop power out and was running on battery only for a bit!)

    Thanks, that is interesting

    Hi, I am only getting between 40-50 FPS but it looks so much smoother and is lag free compared to LOTRO when I get much much higher FPS. Is this to do with server quality and a 64 bit client?
