OP  2/21/13 4:37:38 PM#1

So, I just saw The Hobbit. (Finally) I've been thinking a lot about the LOTR MMO by Turbine.

I played it off and on since the release of the online game, but I really don't like how the store and a lot of the game is setup. Unfortunate for me because I'm a pretty big fan of Lord of the Rings. So my question to the MMORPG community is this...

 

Would you consider playing LOTR: Online if it was rennovated and rereleased with a subscription of $5 or $10 a month? Instead of how it is currently setup with the cash shop.

What would you like to see different in the game if it were to go under development again? (For players that have played the game)

It aint the cash shop that is stopping people from playing it. I like their set up better than $15 a month only option. With their set up, you can still sub and won't have disadvantage. I think LOTRO needs two factions for pvp. This would of made the game a lot more popular with players.

Looking through what the game has and what characters I can roll, I could not manage to even download it. The combat looks so slow and arcaic. I can't imagine it has anything that I haven't seen done in some other game only better.

I'm still playing, and probably I'd play with a sub too. But I have to admit, I don't mind the current model. True, It has its pros and cons (there's a thread on the official forum about the same topic, collecting what has changed since the f2p transition).

But if I want to be honest, now with less gaming time and more games to play (and hop around), the Premium setting is perfect for me.

If I could change anything about the game, the only thing would be their animations.  They tweaked them a little bit since launch, but not to much.  None of the races have a sense of weight to them.  If they would just follow the 12 principles of animation I would be very happy.  Oh and also have the character models redone.

However I'm a lifer with the game. Bought the lifetime membership at launch and just started to play again actually this past week and having fun.  Plus it was nice to see I had over 13k TP so I can use those to buy the Isengard and Rohan expacs.  I already bought Moria and Mirkwood a while ago.

Lotro is one of the best and most interesting themepark games on the market, in my opinion, even though it is older.  I have a VIP account there now because it looks like we won't see any decent new games until Christmas (if then), and I'm enjoying it.  

The cash shop is no big deal at all, and I rarely even visit it.  I've bought some limited edition mounts and cosmetic items, but the game plays just fine without any of the boosts and other crap they sell there.  I don't bother with any of it, and I never find myself considering buying the stuff.  Not because I'm cheap (I'm not), but because I don't feel they are needed.

Pick a busier server like Brandywine and you will enjoy it.  A lot of players are in higher level areas, but there are still lots of people running around.

Your mileage may vary, but I find LOTRO to be a very honest MMO themepark with large areas, lots of options, a more interesting and mature crowd of players and fantastic lore.  If you are itching to play in Middle Earth, give it a try.  This is coming from a person who HATES 99% of themepark MMOs by the way.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

Was in beta and never did sub for it, so for me, the answer is no.  I didn't hate the ame but the art style had a lot to do with it.  I've tried to play it several times but I just don't like the looks of the game and the questing just seemed to be to lifeless for me.

You do realize that you can subscribe to it, right?  And, if you do subscribe, you get almost all of the quality of life features that the f2p players have to buy a-la-carte (extra bank space, full inventory space, titles, skills, commendations, etc.).  There are three paid subscription methods; $99 per year, $29.99 every three months (equals to $10/month), or $14.99/month.  All three are considered VIP level subscriptions and come with the 500 per month alotment of Turbine Points to spend in the In-Game Store.

This is also the same model that Turbine uses for Dungeons & Dragons Online.

After the all the new MMO's I have played and quit I recently went back to LotRO and I am really enjoying it. I decided to go VIP on the £20 for 3 months sub which is good value and with the Turbine Points I have earned ingame, I have already bought the Rise of Isenguard expansion and am now saving for the next.

 

I would say give it a go as it is a great game with large open areas unlike some of the newer MMO's of today with some stunning scenery. A bonus is that they are giving players a 100% XP boost till the 26th Feb.

*Make a big revamp to the combat mechanics (meaning make it as fast as gw2 combat). To me thats the biggest thing, combat is booooooring.

*take out that insane grind to get max level.

* take out pay2win from game.

 

Then i would play LOTR again, with a sub.

It's fine as it is. What's the point of your post? You can already sub and get everything without using the cash shop, or you can use the cash shop as well, or play for free and never use the cash shop, or dip in when you want.

 

I bought a lifetime sub so i've been pretty much getting everything for free since launch. So I wouldn't change a single thing.

Every mmo has a quest grind but lotros is a lot more fun and much easier than most. To describe it as an insane grind is crazy and shows how little you've played the game recently.

 

It's also not play to win, since it's so easy to play you don't really ever need to buy anything from the cash shop, again you probably need to play again since you don't know what you are talking about here.

 

Agree about the combat, but in Update 10 all the skills are getting a revamp and becoming streamlined, and they have already made big improvements to most classes. Like I say, you wont know this though unless you play...

Lets see how the new update will play out. I always end up coming back to this outdatted game because of its IP nothing more. The major flaw compared to other games is its terrrible combat.

  More like take out pay2win from your post. Doesn't sound like you've been in the Lotro Store before. What items are you referring to?

It's not archaic, it's just different. Believe it or not all you action combat addicts aren't the only gamers around, some of us prefer slower combat...

I wouldn't mind the slow combat as much if there wasn't so much of it.  With the amount of grinding lotro requires, faster combat would be nice.  Even better keep the combat as is and reduce the amount of grinding you need to do across the board(questing, leveling, deeds, traits etc...).

 

I am a lifetime member so I can play anytime I want with all the bells and whistels, but everything in the game just takes too long.  Traveling from A to B takes too long, leveling takes too long.  When I have an hour or two to kill I would like to make progress.  Because I don't make much progress when I play, I end up not feeling like logging in.

 

Also I think they did a pretty good job on the environments, and they still look pretty good today.  That said character models and animations look and feel dated.

I´m a F2P player since september 2010. Have not spent 1$ on Lotro since its F2P Conversion... got me 6 Characters slots, every questpack and expansion... and still have about 5k TP left... so... it is 100000000% possible to achieve anything without paying a ......, even Freep PvP was possible thanks the summoning-powers of a captain (might be fixed by now).

Of course, i regret that.. because overall i had great 2 years of fun and i still have. What lotro needs is some sort of a Wv3 matchup system... Server A against Server B (week 1 Server A Freep, Server B Creep, week 2 Server A Creep, Server B Freep) or something "along those lines"..

Lotro is probably the best MMO i´v played the past few years, troll-free for the most time, helpful community and just a great expierence.

 

Give it a go, folks!
