About the interview is good, just dissapointed about we will not be able to enter in Edoras. And what about Helm's Deep?

Rohan is a huge place. The rest of it will most likely be added with the xpac(s) after RoR

Lotro will have hard time while there are so many upcoming mmos but still they keep complicating LIs, putting in more deed and virtue grinds, keep botching their f2p model and cash shop and putting ridicilous prices on their xpacs.

OT: Pokket looks much better with straight hair and a natural hair color. Just saying.

because for the second or third time they are releasing paid for content without dungeons or instances they are really going to struggle..has for what i've heard they are charging extra for the dungeons and instances after..that is a disgrace..they have took this game and they now use it has a cash cow where they rip off the guys that love this game..i think its WB that has done this not turbine.total lack of respect for the fans..i for one will not be paying,even though i,m a lifer.

Even with expansion packs i felt obliged to purchase rather than use points for them.just to contribute something to developers.not anymore..i refuse to spend another penny on this game.points only for me.

Story has been great so far but sadly the graphics and early grind are heavily weighing this game from improving. They need to start looking at a graphics update and update all the older zones with accelerated leveling and improvements that you see in future xpacs.

OT: and yes, you are correct Black_Isle ;)

The product gets worse and worse as the prices rise.   Based on the pricing and lack of content, I'm betting this is the last expansion before they shut down the game ala AC2.  A Rohan expansion without Edoras AND Helms Deep is a joke.

Ok, LOTRO is F2P yet you complain about having to pay for expansions? OMG, I had to spend $40 this 12 to 24 month timeframe. How much money do people spend playing WoW every month and guess what, they STILL pay for their expansions as well.

Just to clarify, someone who played WoW from day one and purchased every expansion would have paid $1,350 just for subs, plus $50 for each expansion resulting in a total cost of $1,500 or more.

I can tell you right now, I definitely didn't pay more then $1,000 for all of LOTRO's content and thats for 2 accounts.

Lotro should have stayed with a sub model instead of f2p/p2w model. I can honestly say i won't spend another penny on lotro.

@clumsytoes44: Isn't ironic how you start out by saying LOTRO should have kept a subscription based format, but you finish up by saying you won't pay for a F2P game? Sorry, but that doesn't make any sense.

OT black_isle +1 :)

They moved the camera since the previous vid (where the waving dude tried to steal the viewer's attiention with TOR infos), but Pokket owns the scene from profile angle as well... One Pokket to rule them all ;)

 

On: I don't feel it as a rip-off or a cash cow yet, although I'm not a "regular" mmo player,  I play it for the lore and Tolkien... so until I can stroll around Middle Earth, exploring, eating pies and smokin' some pipe, I'm good with the game... (but for the record, I already switched back to premium a few months ago)

Nothing against Pokket, but this site has yet to call out Turbine on their pricing and lack of content.  There's no need for Pokket to bring it up in her interview wtih Kate, but the editors here should have been all over turbines handling of ROI and now RoR.

I'm very excited for this expansion.  Mounted combat is going to awesome, and I'm happy to find out that it will be open world combat.  I was concerned they were going to make it instanced like the skirmishes are.  

This game is still one of the best MMOs out there, and aside from sub-par combat, it has nearly everything you could want in an MMO.  I'll probably be pre-ordering this week.

Just wanted to adress the above quote.  First of all, the Rohan expansion is going to be twice the size of the Moria expansion.  And we all remember how huge that expansion was.  So to complain about "lack of content" is absolutely ridiculous.  

Second of all, if you paid attention to the video, Edoras will be coming in a future update.  Please remember that they release content based on the story timeline.  You can't expect to jump right into Edoras when Theodan is still under Grima's spell. It's how Turbine has always released content.  In chunks based on the timeline they are following in regards to the fellowship storyline.

Wow Pokkets I never noticed before...okay well yeah I did. But from that angle those are some serious bazookas!

 

And so Im not totally off topic.

Nice article...errr I mean video on, hold on let me scroll up..., Lord of the Rings Online.

 

Okay all fun aside.

I tried LotRO when it came out and I didnt like the lack of...like lived in feel, in term of NPC's. It felt sterile.

But I have to say it has so many features that I like, housing, music (is that still in?), and great story and setting I really should give this game another shot.

Though I've preordered and am looking forward to Rohan, they really need to revamp their kinship/guild system.  It's the most sterile aspect of the game.. they're nothing more than social clubs.

@Hokie "music (is that still in?)"

of course it is, actually there will be some serious noise-making in the near future:

Did you notice the lady from Turbine's face drop when she started to talk about the price of the expansion, and then she totally didn't even mention how much the legendary and heroic editions cost!

It's like she was thinking "aw man, i hope she's not gonna ask about the pric.... aw damn what do i say?, what do i say?, can we talk about something else now?"

After watching this video I realized something. There isn't enough Pokket related content on MMORPG and thats a damn shame. Please make more.
