OP  4/03/13 1:40:38 AM#1

Just startedp playing after a good break, saved enough TP to get rider of rohan . What I didn't expect is all of the little things they hadded and never really read about them anywhere.

 

The loot bag is awesome, something so simple completely makes the long grind a lot easier not having to click each mob to loot.

Falling of the horse aniimation scared me, I was like, woah .. awesome.

Continueing to push the graphics with better textures and use of dx11.

 

After playing mostly all action based combat games, the tradition feeling, feels good. Server population compared to other f2p games,,, amazing.

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

Nice to hear you enjoyed the game. What server are you in and what is your level (since Rohan is lvl.80s content)?

Yep, there were a lot of "little thing changes" in the recent updates. Remote looting is nice but can quickly litter up your bags :) open tapping and the xp-punishment remove is even nicer. And the 6th bag is finally working.

You can now disable forced emote effects (some asked for it since the last forced emote change).

We got Mithril coins not long ago, Turbine unified all tokens and festival coins and writs into one currency (we'll see in the future whether is it good or just a step towards DDO's planned new AH)

I'm sure there are more, but these were the most notable ones.

Life Liberty and the Pursuit of those that would threaten It

I will just say I bought the Life-Time Subscription and now that it is F2p. Im not very impressed and will never buy another Turbin game and I do have the money.

I'm the complete opposite.  I too bought the Life Time sub back in 2009 and haven't regretted it since and am glad I did and love this game and can't wait to see more Turbine games come down the pipe.

This Makes No Sense At All. Even If You Paid $299 At Launch That Would Have Been Paid For In Under Two Years! TheGame Has Been Out For Over 5 Yrs. How Anyone Who Bought The Lifetime In Lotro Can Whine And Cry Is Amazing. Its By Far The Best Purchase Of A Lifetime Membership In The History Of Mmos!

And I'm the complete ... err middle-ground :)

I skipped LTA both times, and have regretted it in retrospect. I cancelled sub after the Eu servers were transferred to US (it was a great decision money-wise, I should've cancelled earlier, right after the f2p conversion :) ).

Love the game and still playing it. True, LTA would be better, but Premium suits me fine too...

I bought the lifetime for 299 and don't regret it.  I played the hell out of LOTRO for more than 2 years, but I switched to GW2 when it released.  After GW2 combat I have a hard time with the traditional rooted in place combat.  I still believe for story and community LOTRO is unparalled.  Maybe some day I will return, but I am still having a fantastic time in GW2.

Yeah I'm in the "I wish I'd bought the lifetime" camp. I started in 2008 but didn't jump on the bandwagon and regret it now. It's an awesome game and a wonderful story. And imo has the best hybrid F2P monetization method around today.

This is one game I always return to because it has so much heart.  I bounce back to GW2 once in a while and it's just not as fun.  LOTRO is an OG themepark, and even with the F2P changes, it's still more fun than almost everything else out there in my opinion.

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.

Just checked, and it really does... Dunno when that change happened, to be honest I rarely see onto the minimap since I'm familiar with the landscape after all these exploring years, and I mean not only the four Farthings :)

A lot of the area like Rohan is still new to me :D so it is very nice to have a little help when wondering new areas and finding the quest mobs :D

True. I'm not proud of it but I wasn't around Rohan in the last few months, my best and favourite area is still Eriador... Rohan is a great expansion, nice area, the mounted combat is fun, but I still prefer strolling around the original content on foot.

Not to mention, a hobbit on a war steed... bad idea :) It was tough enough to get used to pony riding - luckily the Inn League helped, nothing is better to ease the uncomfortable ride than a couple kegs of the finest ale :)

I'm afraid you have failed to grasp what you gained when the game went free to play, given your limited intelligence. Lifetime one off payment at launch gives you VIP status for free for ever, so you never pay a sub again to get all the things other VIPs have to pay a monthly sub for. Plus you get 500TP a month for nothing. Free to play has been a better deal than when it was pay to play for lifers.

I keep going back to this game and love it. Finally gave WOW up for good to play this game. I won't leave it again till a new great game comes out. Right now, I just don't see that happening in the near future. The story line seems to hold u and they stay true to the Lord of the Rings. Can't say enough about the community, at least on Gladden.

If anything that was covered was a lie, I resent that. That feels as big as any crime as any committed.
