    Looks like Severlin answered the questions with a sense of truth. 10k log ons per day. He is including alt cycling in this count, so at optimum the number is more like 8k and possibly much less. Anyway, let's stick with his number of 10K. The last expansion's price was from $40 to 140$.

    The rest of what he says is being underplayed. They sure are worried and though more Tolkien world exposure does indeed captivate generally more interest. Very little will go SSG's way.

    Hmm? Thirteen year old MMO or a brand new MMO? Which way will I go? Ask this question to a person with a small amount of disposable income and the answer is obvious. It doesn't matter if the person stays with the newer MMO. What matters is if SSG can endure the introduction of another competing MMO. It doesn't matter if the MMO is not LotR proper because Tolkien is Tolkien regardless of the setting. Everyone who indulges MMO's and Tolkien will choose at first the newer MMO. Well, because it's new.

    If Amazon's new game flops, it may not matter to SSG's continued development of LOtRO. Can it and they survive? It's not looking good for SSG.

    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?  

    I enjoyed playing Star Wars and at the moment am playing Final Fantasy XIV which is amazing IMHO

    Someone said the Turbine domain was let go.


    And as funny as shit that it would be, please none of you buy it.

    For £10 a year surely it would have been worth them keeping it up. I see it is now a search type thing now.

    I may be misreading this, but it seems like they're saying they're happy they can play the game without ever having to actually cough up any money. I can see the appeal of a game where you slowly unlock content for free just by playing it, and I've often thought if I didn't have a Lifer account I would've done exactly that as a Premium player.

    That’s how I read it too

    Doesn't seem that fair to me. 1 lot of a bunch of crap and 250 points, all limited only to people who logged in 30 days beforehand. That's junk.


    It’s for people who have played recently not for salty sea hags who haven’t played for years ??

    Still experiencing it until now?

    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!)

    I suspect it's largely due to code quality.  Keep in mind that SE [Square Enix] had to make FFXIV work with a PS3, so they probably have highly optimized rendered code compared to the mess that is LotRO's renderer.

    A 64 bit client would (in this case) only help with being able to load more stuff into memory, and not necessarily with processing throughput.  Server quality is largely irrelevant to client loading, and only really matters with latency.

    Thanks, that is interesting

  9. FPS



    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?

  10. Hello,


    I want to play this game and will more than likely subscribe, I thought it was free to play but looking on the official site it is £14.95 to download. Is there no free download? Is this the cheapest way I am gonna get the game for? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elder-Scrolls-Online-Tamriel-Unlimited/dp/B00VHLU7VS/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1550857416&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=elder+scrolls+online+pc&dpPl=1&dpID=51SGddVFrlL&ref=plSrch
