Radience woked in Moria, It took EVERYONE alot of time to get gear, but with that said , those arguments have been done and gone and itemization continues.

 

Hobbies, I used in rohan for a quest. Also Hobbies are just that... a hobby one can partakein without the need of reinforced quests . It is a social tool as much as a game mechanic in my opinion. I know of no game that has decent hobby system other then Lineage 2.

 

Legendary items drop everywhere all the time. If you are a free to play player, then es, you will rely on the store over VIP players.

 

Mounted Combat is purly subjective , if you like it or not. I personally lve it and it adds another amazing roleplaying notch on my Roham born character.

 

Skirmish system, is used ever day by almost everyone to go into instances. To say it is limping along in my opinion is a fallacy.

 

I;ve not seen one system in the game ignored, revamped yes, but never ignored. If you can give me an exact example of ignored / forgotten system I would be happy to give a rebuttal.

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

It's a complete game change. Combat revamps have historically always been part of the entire game update.

The Epic on the other hand is tied to the xpac this time.

im very interested in that combat revamp. This could be what makes me play Lotro.

There are two different things happening on this level. One is a combat revamp that should speed up combat and give it a more active feel. I think this will be good for the game. The other is the class changes. Depending on the class, and it will be very subjective, the changes may be nice or total rubbish. For my hunter I think I might like the class changes, or at least not hate them unless I just don't like the feel of combat period. For my lore-master, which is my most beloved class, this could pretty much ruin it for me. Orion's minstrel update totally ruined that class for me as well, but since it was my third class (after LM and Hunter), I could deal with it.

It's an important point.

Though one can still have access to skirmishes. It's possible there  will still be mounted combat as there is more to Helm's Deep.

Radiance was taken out so that isn't in the equation anymore. hobbies? I don't remember when the last time that was mentioned so that's a shame.

I mentioned radiance since a lot of the old radiance pieces never really got a balance pass in line with normal gear after the systems removal.  This could, of course, have been changed since the last time I had a char running the relevant content.

Well, in my opinion, radiance was a total cluster because dread and hope worked fine in Shadows. They tried to use that as raid gating mechanism which was soundly rejected because it really added nothing to the raid game. So that wasn't so much a lingerer, like hobbies, housing, etc, as it was just a total fail.

I was referring to those lingering systems, but more so how the content was designed within each expansion. The way your character progressed through content and how you moved through them is different which would be okay if they transitioned well. So in Shadows you started in solo zones with a few group spots to explore along the way. If you followed the story it would lead you to the group instance of the zone - Breeland Barrows; North Downs - Fornost and Dol Dinen; up to Angmar and Urugarth and Carn Dum. It sorted started going wrong when they bolted on Helegrod. Even though that was a very fun raid, it started the whole bolt on shift directions type of design.

The progression deliver was sort of like this: quest and craft for teal gear, flesh out your traits, and then hunt for these cool and rare items in the group instances: The lore-master staff in Carn Dum or the bow in Barad Guluran. The instances were wrapped up in the story so didn't feel like a "dungeon run" but still had these cool items you wanted.

Fast forward to Moria. Old progression is abandoned and new progression moved to LIs. Itemization is less about hunting cool rare treasures in specific instances, although there were a few of those in some instances, and more about repeatedly running a specific set of instances to unlock the raid.

Mirkwood was sort of a Moria style design, but with not a lot of progression. By this time token grind is in full force and the purpose was to grind those to gear up.

And the trend goes forward through the expansions where at best progression lingers a little, or is shifted to another "item", while the previous progression style just sort of dangles. So it's horses in Rohan, for example with interesting LI features sort of just cruising along.

None of these are necessarily bad in themselves, although I think some are poorly implemented (LIs), but that they're bolted together with little to no integration. Then you have skirms. How do those even fit in with the rest of the design? They're fun, but again,not well integrated.

Turbine's entire design history is riddled with this. I feel it provides a disjointed game experience and flow. Look at other games like Aion, EQ2, and WoW. They all have a little of this to some degree, but overall their systems all fit together and the games as a whole fit. They don't feel bolted together. It doesn't make LotRO unplayable, but it's indicative of their poor corporate culture, and why I blame the Paiz couple especially for this, even though some of it is Steefel's fault too. I think it's heavily due to how they've mostly been about the money and less about trying to design the coolest Middle-earth possible. That's my perspective at least.

every major instance you complete is in the skirmish panel.

What hobbies have you suggested to Turbine ?

I dont understand your thrid point.....

I;ve not played HD, so I can't say.....

"Will Eastfold support mounted combat?
A: Yes but only 1/8th of Eastfold will support mounted combat due to the dense collection of trees and foliage."

 

Q: How much of the expansion supports mounted combat?
A: 75% of the regional divisions will support mounted combat. Eastfold not so much because its tucked into the forest.

I disagree 100% . this is were you are trying to limit the game to be something it isn;t. If this is not the system you want, play one of the other games that have that system ?

I love the way Turbine continues to progress in itemization, fine tuning there token systems and making armour reachable for all players. Maybe because their is no true elitist system in LotrO, you feel unrewarded ?

 

I;m a community player, the more people who can get cool things is awesome = less elitism in a community, the better that community grows. It is obvious from the past posts, that you are not a community driven player, but an elitist, and there is nothing wrong with that and many games support that metality, it just isn't LotRo

ok I'm guessing language barrier here, instances are not skirmishes, but since you raised the point name the new instance or cluster added with HD  (BB's are a completely different mechanic not an instance)  However there have been a couple of skirms added over the years Sy I said limping not dead.

Hobbies there have been countless threads on the suggestion  forum for years gathering dust

 

LI's: fair enough tastes and definitions differ

 

MC: I guess I could have been more specific and said feature instead of content as some people do indeed consider new terrain = new content;  fair enough

True elitests? guessing you missed SOA days with comparable incomparable and the multiple paths philosophy that was abandoned in Moria. 

With crafting could be raid ready

with group play could be raid ready

with heavy questing could be raid ready

EDIT: arguably the biggest reason why Radiance was so unpopular as it added the first glass ceiling to the game separating the haves from the have not's.

 

The community of "elitests" as you say were always the strongest voice against it and other forms a gear/stat bloat.  Any true Elitest culture that exists today is a direct result of game design, not the community.

How can I name things that aren't released yet ? Just becuase it was on a test server doesn't mean I am going to play it there and ruin my experience when it comes to the live server :) . 

 

I like waiting for the final build and let others beta test on the test server.

I was banned cause of my overally passionate Monster Play posts, the one part of the game that frustrates me the most :). Be keep on keeping on !  Do I miss posting on lotro, no., because the community is on ther server, not a forum.

All of those hold true now, maybe check the AH and see soome crafted gear. Group content gets you tokens, heavy questing gets you tokens. The radience argument is almost 3 years old now lol....

 

SO im still not following your argument....

Then why are you debating here over information you don't want to know?

 

EDIT  Helm's Deep NDA lifted... title of the thread btw I had assumed that was spoiler alert enough

ok I'm guessing language barrier here, instances are not skirmishes, but since you raised the point name the new instance or cluster added with HD

How can I name things that aren't released yet ? Just becuase it was on a test server doesn't mean I am going to play it there and ruin my experience when it comes to the live server :) .

I found no spoilers in the Op statements, he didn'tinformed of any quest content and most of his statements are fallacy in nature with no prime examples of what he is even generalizing. The only gact that I gained from the OP, is that he plays Rift .

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.
