Why? They weren't any loading screens or instances in Dark Age of Camelot. Nor were there any invisible walls anywhere near the gameplay areas.

There are no zones, instances, or loading screens in Darkfall, or Vanguard.

I have a high level character, and I agree on the artificial hills and also the invisible walls in some parts. Want a good example of invisible wall? Try to walk past the river in Rohan, to the east... on the shore, invisible wall.

Or if you try to climb the hills in the Shire. Or if you try to swim the Brandywine river.

I keep coming back because I love LotR and I invested a ton of time in the IP back in the Middle Earth Online days, and I keep thinking "maybe its not as bad as I remember it" but it always in.


That's pretty silly though. You can walk/ride from the West part of the Shire to Bree, to the Lonelands, to the Trollshaws, then down south to Eregion, then down south once more to Isengard, and then from there down to Rohan.

Only if you follow the road, if you try to leave the path at all you hit walls.

I highly doubt Turbine will make another Middle Earth game.  They have alienated so many die-hard fans with their money-grubbing ways.  


I used to be a big fan of theirs until they turned into the lady in the upstairs room, with the tinny piano music from downstairs playing in the background, saying "Mister, I met a man once..."


NOTE - Geek points for who can place that above quote in the correct classic movie reference.
