    ^This makes me giggle a little bit inside.

    Also. While you're in the giving spirit would you mind taking your kin and rolling freeps/xferring on/to Arkenstone? NEED MOAR FREEPS THERE!

    Welcome to pre-expansion pvp, when every freep can faceroll if they choose and a coordinated fraid will dominate. It's just part of the life cycle of pvp in this game, the repetition of which should be an indicator to anyone who takes pvp seriously to not do so. I don't blame any players, this happens every expansion cycle.

    Come the new expansion, with new class changes, reset on gear and LI's, it will be a much different place. We will settle accounts with a good dust-up.

    I know I'm a new face to the moors over the past few weeks, and certainly not as experienced as most of you here. However, Hinellas inspired me to at least add my two cents based on the perspective of someone who just got here. I'll agree with the expansion cycle causing an imbalance between freeps and creeps, because the only reason I'm in the moors (and many of my freep buddies) is because we are bored with farming 6mans and doing raids. Now we are in there every night, and at first the grams farms were exciting (I needed the comms cus I'm a greenie!), and learning how to play my captain in a PvMP setting keeps it fun.

    Now that I have my gear, I went over creep side to spend all those extra comms. A friend of mine has a warg pack tribe he pulls out with his guild once or twice a week. Firstly, creeps are nicer. As squishy and green as my warg was, I was doing my best to get out there and at least stun some freeps for the higher ranks to gank. Thank you Doctor for being kind enough to heal me. Back to the point, I respect creeps much more and I'm far more willing to switch sides when the fight feels uneven, and hopefully bring my friends with me. Once Helms Deep arrives, the cycle will repeat, because I certainly won't be in the moors for a while. The scales will tip the other way. Kudos to Henellas for the post though. She's instilled some loyalty to creep side for me!

    You're right. All those freeps should log over creepside so that there is zero opposition for taking keeps and delving buffs

    Yes yes, all the freeps need to turn into creeps, don't worry I will stay on freepside and continue to show how to successfully play a freep. To quote a friend of mine, "Step 1, roll face on keyboard. Step 2, repeat step 1 until you win." Shame most freeps have no idea how to do this successfully.

    While I applaud your enthusiasm, I think the glaring pink elephant under the carpet has somehow surpassed you.

    There is no loyalty to creepside. 95% of them are there, as yourself, due to boredom. And most have ranked freeps. And, sadly, most flip to the easier side. Make no mistake between flipping sides to "help matters" and loyalty. Its simply a selfish motive. As it should be, since it is a game and we are here to derive pleasure in a selfish manner.

    If latching onto the bosom of a self proclaimed crusader makes your day a little brighter, then knock yourself out. I think most of us have at one time or another found our shepherd, and forsook all notions of independence, to get that which we are all here to get. Rank.

    Your poignant statement above rang more true than you know, since you are new to the moors. Most the weekend warriors will disappear when HD comes out. Like they did when RoR released, and RoI, and SoM before that...until they feel sufficiently brave enough to venture here again. You may find a handful of us still here, because that is what we log in for these days. Such as it is.

    I see you are posting your LOTRO autobiography, but for some reason painting it as though it's the thoughts and motives of others. You need to hire an editor before you try to sell this flop to the public.

    Fortunately, I could care less who buys it, as it is my opinion stated, and in no way the fact or view of the masses. Nice try though.

    You "could care less", so you apparently care quite a bit. Which is illustrated by bothering to make the original post and this response.

    Except for the fact that this completely contradicts your post where you spoke so knowingly for the masses.

    Which has nothing to do with caring who buys it. Your drivel is boring at best, Doc. I expected better from you.

    I was also thinking a more fitting term would be The Greatest Kin of All Time. I am glad you agree.

    Your suggestion is appreciated and thought provoking. Why dont you log on to lotro sometimes so we can talk about it? I promise not to huggletroll you

    I like AUP 2.0 better

    speaking of switching side, anybody remember all those store bought reavers and spiders when RoR launches ????
    P.S. Disciplinary School for Girls is the best kin no argument here.

    I'm not sure if this was the same night stuff happened, but while running by I did turn floaty names on just to see who was in the rolling greenie creepball and most were in Minions of Mordor. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell who's in which group, especially with greenies since it's pretty much guaranteed that nobody has maps, and so they inevitably end up rolling around in more or less the same direction most of the time like a blob of delicious jello pudding. Also, I can vouch that running off in your group of two can be hazardous to your health when you hit the jackpot freep group of a hunter, champ, 4 wardens and 7 healers (+/- 3 healers) (who all dismount for lulz).

    I'm sad that I always miss some of the deleted posts. It can make it so hard to follow the flow of the conversation.

    I was wondering where you had gone, Hinellas.

    I started PvMP as soon as I hit the level cap at 65. I was on my guard, my first toon, but I was a no one. I was no threat because I had no idea how to play OP and so stayed tank. I watched my friends and kinnies get killed and it was only after every single freep was dead did the creeps bother with me. I got to rank 5 just following the freep raids around, but none of them really explained the moors to me. So I quit. Then I just recently came back to PvMP on my lore-master and who was there to help the squishy and stupid lm? Hinellas.

    Anyways, point is, I'll miss feeling safe with you leading us Hinellas, but I swear I'll give ya a good fight! ;D

    Thanks for the kind words Wig. You're always welcome to group with my kin who stayed freep-side. We all have the same approach when it comes to LOTRO. Help people out who are like-minded and want to have fun. Behaving like some individuals do on freep-side is not tolerated and ignored for the tools that they are. Things may change when HD comes out but I doubt it. I'm committed to making this work. I'll see you on the battlefield.

    Hey Sabian. Absolutely. Send me a tell in game whenever you're ready. We usually have 8-20 on as a kin at any given time so if i'm not on, contact an officer freep-side and we'll get you in the tribe. Welcome.
