    Re: Girl Gamers

    I tried to preorder moria the other day, the conversation goes like this.

    "Oh this comes with a free shirt *starts digging through his stuff for the shirt in the back* "What size is he?"

    "Excuse me?"

    "The guy your getting this for, what shirt size is he?"

    "I'm a medium."

    "Oh we're out of mediums."

    "I think i'll survive without a free t-shirt."

    "Ok well here is your reciept, I hope he enjoys it."

    "Indeed I will, have a good day."

    Why are they ALWAYS out of mediums??? Ok, I know why: they don't print many and we're competing with every male gamer under the age of 15. But jeez louise, the only place I can wear my SoA world tour shirt is to bed.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    rofl I had a similar conversation with a guy in eb games when I was pre-ordering MoM.

    He was treating me like I was stupid and taking me through the "dumb blonde" version of system requirements. I let him go for awhile. Then he asked me if my kids had seen the films before I brought the game for them. That was enough for me ......

    Me: The kids? Oh they don't play. Let my kids touch my rig?! Are you out of your freaking mind?!! I meet the system requirements no problems...and by Christmas I will have dropped another 2gig in and whacked in a radeon 4870 Sapphire so I'll be flying

    Him: Aaahhh

    Me: Just put the damn thing on pre-order will you.......you need to go to the pre-release section on your screen....no scroll down a bit more...there it is.....are you new here?

    Sometimes I almost feel sorry for them....almost

    Another thing I've encountered is the 'step back and give a wierd look' mentallity when guys find out I play mainly creepside. Yes I'm a Warg. Yes I spend my nights hunting down and killing other people......they really seem to have a problem with that.
    Seems it's sexy and cool to be a girl gamer.....but you're scary and wierd if you like pvp....go figure.

    I could explain celibacy but I'd rather just torture you all individually and get some sick pleasure from dashing a mans hopes and dreams regularly.

    I still enjoy Lords but only with a mature group that isn't bouncing of walls and ordering people around to play 'their' game, their way..
    Lol you didn't play the same wow, or lotro for that fact, as i have.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    Female here. /wave

    I found out about LOTRO from an email a friend sent. Once I adjusted the graphic settings to a point where I could move my character, I fell in love with the game. It was and still is absolutely gorgeous, even with graphics on low.

    I only play in the Moors these days, even though I started out only PVEing because I thought I'd never ever want to play in a pvp zone. Heh that sure changed.

    Most of my chars are on Ark but I'm slowly working on maps on E. I had heard there were several female gamers on creep side on E, and a server with a little less testosterone can't be a bad thing. So here I am.

    So if you see Nevermind, Ijustpassedgas, or Cuddlecakes running around, feel free to not eat me.

    This message has been approved by a healthy dose of estrogen.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    Also a female gamer, I have played Diablo, DAOC (best housing ive seen ) WOW and now LOTRO for over a year. My husband and I have always played together, with our sons joining us at various times. Have a 50 Captian , 50 Champ and 46 Mini. Looking forward to MOM release. LOTRO has by far been the best game in so many ways, we signed up for lifetime. Glad to see there are so many female gamers.

    I currently lead the Rohirrim kinship on Landroval. Currently we have eight to ten active girls with about nine to ten guys. So yeah, a pretty even split. Really nice to see so many ladies into LOTRO. And all of them excell at RP.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    I have a few questions, What does it matter if we are female or not?

    Does our gender make a difference?

    Why draw attention to our differences?

    Why is there not a Guy Gamers post?

    I have a few questions, What does it matter if we are female or not? Because it does...

    Does our gender make a difference? Yes...

    Why draw attention to our differences? Because girl gamers have real boobs, not fat guy man boobs.

    Why is there not a Guy Gamers post? Because guys would just not answer, except for the occasional grunt or something.

    I can sense that these are rhetorical questions, but I'd like to say, kudos for posting them!

    And if they are not rhetorical then I'd like to throw my 2 cents in:

    Gender doesn't matter to me. Iow, being male or female does not make one superior to the other. What does matter to me is whether that player is considerate in-game. I think too much is being made of the differences between genders. We all love this game, we're playing it. End of story. Sure I'm proud to be female, but I wouldn't go shoving that in people's faces at every turn.

    As for guy gamers posts, well, I'd welcome that wholeheartedly, even though I'm not a guy.

    I agree totally.. but I think that the purpose for this thread was misunderstood. I started this thread when I first started playing lotro. This is my first mmo and I was curious as to how many other girls out there were playing and to get their experiences. It was cool to meet other woman playing that also had kids and how they play around their schedules. Thank you for all the responses over the past year and keep em comin!!!

    I'm not saying any sex is better at playing than the other. Though we all know some kick butt girl gamers!.. dont we I just thought it was interesting to share stories and get to know other girls gamers in lotro CHEERS!
