    so heres an idea...

    ive been playing on brandywine a bit lately, and ive noticed that rather regularly they hold organized 1v1s in a semi out of the way area. theyve labeled the snow capped hill above tr rez "candy mountain" im not sure if we have a title for it here so im just going to use theirs. now wouldnt it be awesome if creeps/freeps who are seeking a good 1v1 fight (as i know so many of you claim to be) could just mosey on by CM and see if there are any players of the opposing faction that happen to have a similar mindset? of course we are going to have party crashers who want to roll in and gank the loners, but maybe we could give this a shot? just hop about in front of your desired dancing partner, then bow to confirm the match and have at it! could be good times, or at least a break from the ever so wearying ta lawn shuffle.

    *fingers crossed for some positive replies*

    Well we used to call it Myles mountain couple years ago. Myles was a guard who went up there to farm rank so he could get the r6 shield for the rift L@L

    And the jumping thing was another method used many years ago. All I ca say is that if I see two people fighting each other and they aren't in vent and I know about it I'm going to jump in that #### and get me some infamy. Should not be an issue if you are on Myles mt. as I never venture up there.

    It's called candy mountain here too, probably migrated from that server.

    We've had an area like that for some time, a designated "spar" section, right behind TR. It's just rarely... if ever... used. The population on FF precludes most people from heading there as you could be waiting days for someone to show up, unless it's a pre-coordinated event.

    Good idea... has never really worked all that well on a consistent basis on this server due to population fluxes and plain old absences.

    Re: so heres an idea...

    I love the idea. Panda and I used to gather forces on each side and hold fight clubs (1v1's, 2v2's etc) in certain areas; never the same to avoid some of the losers that take advantage of a player when they are low after a win or during the fight. It's pretty obvious when there's tons of people standing in a circle watching 2 people duke it out...

    I'm down for this at any time of the day, anyday. Although I will most likely want to go on the warden, burgs are too damn OP for 1v1's

    I think it's a fun enough idea to try something new, atleast just once. When the fights get a little lousy on those crazy nights, would be interesting for both sides to be in vent for one 1v1 per person (whoever wants to participate) since it would spice things up. But then again, those sorta things would have to be planned out I guess. I kinda imagine it as being like a big gladiator fight!!! WOOT!!! But that's probably over fantasizing. LOL.

    yea sorry sixofsix, that statement shouldnt have been directed at you personally. i dont mean to knock you at all. too often the moors action is just the range classes pew pewing at the usual hangouts and that got old long ago. so i was just venting my mild frustration with that trend and also the negative comments regarding something i think may be a good change of pace for those who are reluctant to participate in said pew pew.

    Very well said & I completely understand. I apologize, as well, for casting presumed negativity into your thread. I just disagree that planned "spars" are going to in any way resolve the current zombie-drool situation in the Moors. The constant flip-flow of skewed class imbalance is the real issue and always has been. That, combined with the lack of "rewards" or variety of terrain, field objectives, etc etc etc. It's laziness and a lack of imagination on the Devs part and we, as players, are left to try to make something fun out of it... 4 years later.

    ^this is the unfortunate truth. i really have high hopes for the new pvmp region, if we ever get one. wasnt it initially scheduled for ROI then pushed back? i love what lotro pvp could be. well, mythic has some events scheduled for tomorrow so lets all sign up! do it now

    No hate, Sylv.

    Everyone knows that, for me, the Burg is home but I'm having fun Creepside. While it isn't as challenging as some are claiming (there are some odd balances), it certainly is a bit more involved right now than Freepside and for me, that's what I'm looking for.

    I also feel so incredibly behind in terms of gear, skillset familiarity, grinding, etc., that it's currently too daunting to even think about logging in and starting over again.

    BUT BUT BUT I love nothing more than taking out my fellow Burgs.
