Before i start writing about the thing i came here for, I just wanna say that last few pages of this thread look ridiculous. Discussing how someone died at some particular situation wont help anyone nor will take points from the guys who took it. Everyone on this server already knows, ranks are nothing, ive seen very good lowranks and ive seen horrible R10+ players, ive seen epic fighters and ive seen epic runners, there is everything on both sides and to be honest, both sides suck. Few guys on each side know to follow RAT, few guys do their role very good, handful of players have dps the should have (both sides) and only few are good kiters. General mindset on this server is to not allow enemies to take points and before you guys start thinking how to take a kill before you die, instead of "omg i could die, lets bail", this will be better server. IMO this will never happen.
What brought that mindset to moors is when turbine changed reknown/infamy gain. Then they added finesse and changed jewellery (a lot more dmg inflicted, shortening fights, slowly transforming it to zergish style of game) and final blow for this expansion: Critical rating and multiplier changes + easy acces to 1stagers and golden jewellery (even more dmg inflicted). Oh i forgot Outposts, they give more dmg too.
So from 65 times dmg ,mainly freeps (but creeps too), people inflict is increased by:
-Stat cap removal
-Critical multiplier and rating changes.
And all they gave us is audacity. Yes it decreases dmg, which could fix the problem, but it doesnt affect healing. Now imagine moors with everyone on -30% incoming healing...
There is one more thing i would like to mention: Removing creep power drain abilities. You may say creeps still have it, but lets face it, it doesnt work. Spiders and defilers main weapons at the time were power drains. not anymore...
Its just too easy. Every noob can get 10 ranks in 2-3 months, have nice little emblem on his avatar, but honestly they usually dont know what to do when theyre in small fights and though positions. Then we see a lot of mindless running away, one side pushing on one side, another on other side. Thats not fighting. Thats, my lads, farming. I for example get bored really fast if its too easy to beat opponent or if i go into fight without any chance to success. I play for a long time now and spent maybe 10 times more time in moors then many "highranks" on this server, but im certain, i had a lot more fun, a lot more unique and challenging fights and played with more skilled players that this new highranked people do. I congratulate to all these guys and i wish them fast ranking in future as well, Im not hater. I dont need ranks, i need a decent fight! Give me that!
RoR expansion brought us Loremasters (unknown species in moors before water lore), freep domination (unfortunately not trough skills), a lot of casters (if only creeps would have some dps casters...) and autoflip and OP nonsense. All that falls to shadow if you remember huge population growth with lotro on steam and ww being recommended server. Anyone else got pissed with Server full messege? Thats what really changed this server to what it is now.
HD is going live today... What to expect?
I expect more imbalance in moors, only roles will change. Minies wardens and champs wont be so hard to kill, but new classes are entering..guard, burg and hunter could be pain now. Creeps remained more-less same ####, but we will provide resistance. Things will be brought to normal once creeps got revamped (im 99% sure this is coming) and once freep classes get polished. Lets be honest, this game is mainly pve, so they made classes for pve, pvp will be fixed later. Fights could be even shorter = a bit more zergish play possible. We'll see...
I wish you all good luck, lots of kills, good and fun action and for those who need them, points.
At the end, since i didnt want to post in pvmp awards thread, i wanna say few things about some influential people in moors:
Haras: I dont like his playstyle, most of his opinions, his jokes suck, but... That guy brought and helped more freeps in moors then anyone on this server, even in times when server was almost completely empty, he brought some resistance (they maybe didnt kick ###, but they came!)
Kami: A lot of action is there just because he has will and balls to fight, many times in not very good conditions.
Fenilia: Gave me nude pictures.
Germans: cuz they came.
Ethelric and Leischo: for giving me biggest LoLs after Zrinko era. Owning kami and Enforcer ftw
Khaosrogues: best tribe ever.
Me: cuz i suck now cuz i dont play enough.
I hope ill see some of your opinions about RoR times after my post!
LUTZ DA GOD!
Yes the honourable Narthor.
Spying on PE ts for freep raids , and yes we know because he pressed the wrong button one time and gave creep raid s position and numbers back to creeps.
No thx , if i want to play with a ##### I will play with my own.
Maaba and oudini wouldnt gank spar ? Just watching ? I can track men as uruk and oudini was stealthed and stood right behind me.
[QUOTE=RohirrimCaptain;7004988]Dunc, dunno if you got lost in the pub again or if you are just being an idiot..
You are rank 9 and "only" played in raids, never sparred or killed anything ,rank 8+ that knows how to play their class, solo.
And you still think Narthor needs 2 burglars to kick your squishy bum ?? omg sometimes you go a bit ridiculuous.
100% sure that maaba and drabbit didnt know that you were sparring with Narthor, all freepside that played with them and creeps with a good sense know that too, BUT another thing that I cant believe is how Beoluk signed up to gank Narthor (would like to hear Beoluk version here).
Another one, if you knew that 2 (!) burgs were there with Narthor (3 good freeps), why did you went back to GTA with only Beoluk by your side (1 good creep).
A player that knows PVMP, can see that you would get ### kicked, if the burglars were actually there.
MAYBE, just MAYBE , you only went there to gank Narthor, since you cant get him solo :\
I really feel sad for you, one day you will be able to emerge from your QQ tears pool and get one rank 8+ freep solo, I believe you
Soloing on 8 a.m in the morning doesnt count, but i heard hoarhallow farmers already start to respect you a bit, just a bit, keep it up! QUOTE]
Only played in raids...lol..Where did you get this information from?
8am in the morning...sorry at work.
Hoar hollow farmers respect me?..Must be the raid I take...rofl.
Tracked Oudini when Beo came to rez me, steathed stood behind me. Gank Narthor with only a defiler ?
Spent hours on training dummies trying rotations and corruption combinations.....cant get BAs dps over 1 minute above 750 , and that was with a load of crits
.Perhaps im missing something.

Good post, dear god. I cant analyze much, cause i started to play actively few months before roi launch and consider myself as greenie. I can share my point of view, but im sure it will be mostly the same things that god mentioned.
But what really catches my eyes is this:
Top class in sparring, even though I myself get humiliated on the video.
-Only thing more painful than 70morale fight was my movement
Yes that means burglar is likely to jump me again. This is Narthors kin mate, ive been ganked once while stood doing nothing at GTA allready , I would be naive to belive a stealthed burg stood behind me has good intentions.
Lol...in future then you can pass the position of freeps raid and composition to a creep leader so we can constanly stop you taking keeps/dof buffs/outposts.
Still waiting on my BA to find you solo anywhere on the map. And no I dont require you to observe spar conditions.
Morva ofc this ******** Narthor has on video only spars that he won except the small part at the start with the endings of some he lost!! QQ
Noones going to convince me that I wasnt set up to be ganked the moment narthor challenged me to a spar. Me narthor and drabitt have a history.
A % of creep side think badly of me?....ahh you mean the sideswitchers.
Who said anything about you leading creep raids?
Do I expect my Ba to win against ur RK ? No of course I dont , you hit my warg with EC for 9945 on Saturday , BA has no defence against tactical. But its not all about winning , some of us like a challenge.
Ahh yes ...the reality of moors play. 1k damage...maybe we should spar instead . Narmiel and red can watch.
Name me some. Perhaps they can comment themselves.
Drabbit and maaba did gank me 100%. Fact
Please break up your sentences , its worse than reading james joyse.
Was reading some of HD notes..
Life's so easy for creeps during new expansions..
No pay / Log in / +30% dps + reduced cds.. / Lets go!!
Pay one more time / lvl up to 95 / gear up (armour+jewells) / new legendary items (earn them + shards + lvl up + find proper legacies + relic/crafting up)
and before all of these u have to learn your new class with those revamps on traits/skills..
Hope it ll worth the time..
just saying that creeps damage and morale are insane atm on HD, i'm very interested to see how freeps will be on max level with good gear
Dunc Dunc Dunc.... I´m glad that narthor have the video of what happen... u are a big big liar...
And u talk about ganks? U kill me 2 times after i did a spar and was with -500 morale left with your warg, so please stop...
Im tired of this QQ QQ QQ QQ but u dont have anything to talk about me or maaba, if u dont like to die, just stop coming to moors... or die and take it like a man!
You are the only creep that when i see is like a bull looking at a red spot! Can´t do much about it sry, but u must know why this happens like the rest of the PE kinship...
See you in moors i hope
btw im not saying im better or u are better, just play the game the best u know, and if u die is not the end of the world belive me, dont need all that QQ
Peace, Drabbit out!
Don't worry Freeps, we'll be nerfed in about two months.
As soon freeps have their precious FA and full aud armour creeps have no chance
Even now they will have hard against freeps since the dps is still no higher then that of a freep doing the weakest skill attack over and over again ...
Only reaver has real dps, other classes are just a joke
Last RoR Video for me!
Hope there's many more coming in HD, especially would ask people who can to set up a capture device for the league play I'll start working on in a couple weeks.
Cya guys in couple weeks when action picks up!
