    Worth coming back?

    So I recently started thinking about returning to LOTRO after a lot of time being away. I am sure that only a handful of you even remember me. In the past 3 days I have logged off and on throughout the day to spectate, play and to try and get a feel of the moors. It seems to me that the moors is pretty uneventful.
    What I mean by that is, the only time there is any action is during primetime on weekends. If I log on any time except on weekends it is either creeps getting face rolled or vice versa.

    I am not one of those people who can spend 6 hours of my day waiting for a good fight to start...not any more anyway.

    It also seems that (at least creepside) there is that classic elitist attitude. Where high ranks only group with high ranks. Now I understand all the reasons why this is and I get it, no one likes a useless tag along....but here is the truth. I need my audacity to compete. I need kills to get audacity. So, I can either hope for an invite into a group, or I am forced to leech.

    But here is my question. Is it worth coming back and putting all this effort into ranking up and building my audacity... if I can only do it as a casual gamer? Since I dont have the time to constantly be on, is it worth playing?
    Judging by how things have always gone in the past, i'm beginning to think LOTRO is the same as it ever was, if not worse.

    Cheers,

    p.s - I am thinking it would be much easier and faster to just play freepside again. Because at least I can grind a little easier.

    I would say that this thread def makes it seem like you at least have some desire to come back. Is it worth it?

    Well, there are certainly many game mechanics that are broken, but many that are fun too. There are many fun people to play with, but many people to hate too. I could list hundreds of reasons not to play this game, and many games that look better on paper. But in the end, we end up here because we have fun. And what is fun to me probably isn't fun to you.

    For whether or not there is action...well you have to consider that we are currently in the "pre-expansion lull" that we pretty much always see. It is promising to see quite a number of old players peeking their heads in to see whats up, but right now it is really rather hard to gauge what the game will be like in even just a months time.

    Anyways, just things to keep in mind. And remember that things WILL change in just 3 weeks time, it's just a matter of whether it will be better or worse

    BUBBLES!!

    Even though I don't play on DD anymore, yes, come back! The game needs some nice people again!


    I completely with Eo, and it's pretty much about that: fun. We QQ, we rage, we cry, we hate the game, devs and other people. But in the end, we're all just used to the game, to the devs, to other people. And used to have fun with that.

    Hmmm...I see.
    I mean no disrespect by this whatsoever..but essentially this game is like trying to love your mentally challenged child. It is broken, but you still love it. Correct?

    Also...with the new update coming out and new lvls being made...is the Audacity being 'reset' again? Meaning we will have to earn all new audacity and I have a chance to be strong again?

    aaahhh, it is so tempting.

    Hey there bubbles,nice to hear from ya again.Heh dont know if you remember me,but if.... although yea things are getting a bit out of hand and with Helms deep coming action isnt that great,but if you wanna try moors once again i will be more than happy to help ya out anyway i can(i have to admit,i am not the kind of guy that groups that much but i will DEF help peeps i know in my time here).I have to say though things are anywhere but balanced and you may get frustrated at some aspects of our pvp now but dont let that get you dissapointed:P

    Pretty much. And yea, the audacity cap SHOULD be raised (unless turbine pulls a fast one on us). Then again, that does remind me of how Turbine said one of the main purposes of audacity was to promote getting new gear "seasonally". So much for that idea...

    If you want to be strong and relatively balanced once the expansion hits, I would suggest trying to get up to comms cap (10k) before Nov 18, that way you can purchase all the old ranks of audacity (at a cheaper price), as well as at least 1 new one.

    bubblezzzzzzzzzzz

    I miss our ol' spider groups


    I haven't been on much myself of late, tbh I've gotten tired of what they've done to spider (made it more of a tank than kiting machine....) and the broken balance as always....

    When I have been on it's usually dead or massive one-sided zerg rez camp... so I mostly only stay if friends are on.

    Hopefully HD will make it a bit more interesting again.
