    It amazes me.

    Spent some time on both creep and freep side today, I rarely get on creepside but just wanted to mess around a bit. It just amazes me how many on each side complain how much they hate this game, hate turbine, and hate the pvp...and most of the ones complainin have been around for years, just go on to your next fotm game and leave the ones that actually like the game be, and quit being girlygirlishgirls.


    Drunkenly yours,

    We will be releasing an instance cluster after the update comes out. However, we have not discussed the pricing of the cluster at this time. The mention of the cluster being free to players who have purchased Rohan was incorrect, and that's what we have removed. There is no instance cluster coming out simultaneously with the expansion. We will be discussing the pricing of the instance cluster at a later time.

    Simple solution to that, ftpers become VIP

    If they gave all the content free when you bought the xpac, there would be no reason to pay a monthly fee...so the ones that buy the xpac and complain they cant get instances should just get a job and pay 10 bucks a month

    "hate this game" - I love this game. Its the closest thing to playing MERP, taking me back to the 1980's. The lore is what has kept me here. There are changes I would make to some things of the game, but I'm not a developer and its not my choice to make.

    "hate turbine" - I don't hate Turbine. While they have made some questionable decisions, it was theirs to make. They have provided me with a virtual representation of my all time favorite fantasy lore, and did it well. I do wish they wouldn't have gone p2w... sorry p4c(onvenience). But cash speaks louder than principle in our capitalist society.

    "hate the pvp" - I have admired the style of pvp that lotro has tried to make. Completely open, free for players to pvp how they wish, short of exploiting game mechanics. Its an open world pvp setting with no requirement on what you have to do when you get out there. The balancing issues between the two factions will never be perfect, nor truly balanced. But I would rather have it that way than simple cookie cutter classes that mirror each other between the two factions.

    but thats just my opinion

    <3 Ya Bace! Took the words right outta my mouth, well brain really... but whatever.

    Ohh yea and btw... BURROW FTW! :P hahaha

    1st edit: The ONLY thing I will add about PvP is not anything to do with the game, but rather the community of the freeps vs creeps. The creepside is much "closer" of a community than the freepside. There is much more openess to letting people know whats going on and where, or open groups, or willingness to group, or higher ranked toons trying to help out lower ranked toons etc. on the creepside; where the freepside is more of a "click" based mentality... Lets all just group up and beat the s**t outta eachother (god willing not the standard ec/ta lawn/oc shuffle) and help eachother out with letting people know whats going on at the very least if you dont want to group up with lower ranked toons....!

    2nd edit: btw, when I say group up in my last sentance I mean that not literally as starting up a raid group (although there isnt anything wrong with that, but the current mentality is against it with most...), but letting people know where the fight is so we can all meet up and have single large battles, vs riding around without letting people know whats going on and having smaller here and there ganking type battles.

    Having 1 large style battle over a keep > our standard zerg/ninja/ec-ta lawn-oc shuffle style battles.

    Dont take me wrong like the large style battles DONT happen at all, but I think I speak for us all when I say it should be the norm. It's really all about a mentality change of the server, which of course this late in the game, would be a hard thing to achieve... but wishful thinking works right?!?!

    Very well said, you seem to share my excitement of simply being in middle earth. This game isnt perfect but turbine has to make money so the store/pricing etc. angers alot of people. But for those who havent read the story about Curt Schilling(who was a former Major League pitcher for those that don't know) going bankrupt after investing his entire savings from baseball, 75 million dollars, after trying to start up an MMO company and failing miserably, it just shows this business take a LOT of money to keep things running, so the pricing of Rohan doesnt bother me at all. And as I've said a million times, this is a PVE GAME and turbine has said since the beginning pvmp will always take a backseat to PVE. So the balancing issue should be expected as they continue to work on PVE content. For those who say "Bace, no wonder you dont complain you are an OP mini" I've been playing since shortly after launch, levelled and pvp'd before warspeech was even thought of, and even if minis get nerfed to the ground I will be out in the moors doing my thing...which is pretty much just dying.

    Anyways, been having alot of fun lately out there, my mug is raised to all of ya.

    I think people have the right to be upset at the direction of the game they have spent hours and $ on.

    Turbine has turned a corner that isnt exactly promising for those of us who have played for 5 years.

    That doesnt mean they need to quit, but complaints are one thing, outright misery to the point of not even enjoying the game is another, if you hate it and arent having fun leave, if you want to have opinions that arent exactly pro where turbine is taking it, then you have the right.
