I wish to begin by saying that Hinellas of Riddermark inspired me to make this thread.
Her original thread (and it is full of awesomeness) is here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...y-Observations
So, let me guess. Like me, all of you are probably stuck on some server where the PvP is terrible. Freeps are overpowered. Freeps probably have close to (if not) superior numbers by now. (I've never seen the ON buff creepside this many times on my server). Just about every Freep is a Warden, Lore-master, Captain, Runekeeper, or Minstrel, right? Do you make small creep groups to match, and sometimes wipe them a few times? Then they come back with even larger numbers, wipe you, flip the map, and camp Grams and sit on the keeps right? I'm almost certain that, like me, you are sick and tired of the same routine over and over and over again, every time you log on. Are you really tired of it? Do you want to do something about it? Searching for a solution? Here's mine:
They make a fraid? You go put together a craid. They heal-stack groups by grabbing all the healers out of the woodwork? You go get some Warleaders and Defilers. Put together a Warg-Pack and take those healers out, or slow em down. They want to play the OP musical chairs game? Fine, play it with em. If they flip all the OP's, make it your business to flip em all back. They're camping Grams? Put together a craid and wipe em. Push them back to the rez and turn the tables on them.
Time and time again, Freeps have shown they're scared of us. I'm sure all of you have seen (at one point) Freeps with superior numbers hiding in some rez or keep from a Creep group of lesser numbers and, occasionally, lesser experience and rank. Without a raid-leader, many Freeps can't do jack. So don't be afraid to push them. They will fall back.
Once upon a time, I believed that Creeps alone could help shape PvP with their gameplay actions. Funny right? Boy, was I wrong. It takes both sides to make PvP better. Many (I said many, not all. Those who care know who they are.) Freeps have proven again and again that they don't care. They couldn't care less about camping greenies at the rez or at Grams. They don't care if the action dies. They don't care and will probably deny that they are overpowered as they run away, blowing all their CDs. If they don't care, why should we? It takes two sides to make this work, not just one. They have shown that they are not willing to make that commitment. So, A Eruchîn, ú-dano i faelas a hyn an uben tanatha le faelas....show them no mercy, for you shall receive none. This is not a call to go around zerging and interrupting 1v1's...this is a call to not let up on Freeps. Not one bit. For they would not show you any if they were in your shoes.
I challenge everyone who this threads speaks to, and holds some meaning for (I hope I didn't waste half and hour typing this for no reason) to post this or it's link on their server's PvP section.
So for those who went "ew tl;dr" :P. STAND, CREEPS OF THE MOORS!
