Come on Sars.... I can't even get a "Former Lover" mention?!
Forget you, man!
Not one mention of Wolfpack in all these post...damn ya'll was just making me feel like I was somebody way back when?
The only feeling I had left is now gone.
I feel so lonely
I give Illydros a big +1 for coming over and saying thank you for the good fights.
The face of this server has drastically changed over the past two years. This is by far not the list of people I like because I dont personaly know or necessarly like them.
LMs-Eclipso (and I hate myself for forgetting but there was another LM in the first few books. The only thing I can remember is that he is Canadian haha)
Minis-Ophy (also hate myself here because I cant remember a name from 5 years ago haha they were a married couple mini and guard)
Burgs-Rigora (or any class he played really), Mirror, Sadaf
WL-Darkrain (ridding on Gobblemoss into battle), Yarg
This tells me I need to work on some memory games....
The Lonely Mountain Band
Pouncival-Rank 15 aroo-Leader of the Pouncing Pwny
We Pounce Because We Care
Disclaimer: I for one cannot single target a top player with how dynamic Lotro has changed the Ettenmoors. Every person I mention has at some point in the Ettenmoors history been considered at their time a top player for their class, I can't speak for levels 75-85 as I did not truly participate long enough through those levels. This list involves level 50, 60, 65. The people chosen are not based on popularity, but on the influence of the moors in comparison with their class skill.
I cant enter who's the best currently, as the 95 era has not finished yet. History is still in the making.
Lets begin with Champions:
Leekae: Leads raids in the moors frequently during his time, and knew how to rally Freepside when they were struggling.
Luc: To Solo and Beyond! Loved to solo, perhaps loved the forums more.
Wulfhen: In the 60 era he knew his class up and down. you wanted this guy on your side.
Sadaf: While a real jerk, this player knew their class very well.
Mirror: The famous slug farmer. Ranked so fast because of this!
Trinstar: Quiet, but deadly.
Blacksparrow: You know there will be a party when you have this guy in your raid. Against him you are in for entertainment, fun but deadly.
Darkseize: I remember Dark loving HH, would always find this guy near some creep, destroying their questing!
Rashka: came out of the shadows and lead raids for awhile, making a mark on Freepside!
Bedlemtorez: Gambler to the core
Nandir: efficient captain and unique leader for Freepside in the Ettenmoors. first captain to reach rank 11 on Landroval.
Ray: Loved to use his PvE armor set while leading in the moors.
Ryan: While a jerk to players, this one also deserves a mention as he was the first captain leading in the moors.
Jimmycake: not typing anything.
Erinian: Often quiet in his later years, This guardian knew his class every update.
Foy: Outspoken and loved to lead raids.
Frotswa: Had fun doing everything but protecting as a guardian!
Estellion: Fun and energetic guardian, Studied his class and proved how powerful a guardian can be.
Warsong: An oldie but goodie who was also a great raid leader. Unlike many others from that timeframe, he was also a really great guy
Elcan: In the 50 era, Elcan was known as the hunter who could one-shot creeps now and then.
Spifits: In the level 60s spifits was a fast, powerful hobbit hunter who was a raid leader as well.
Elorcutt: Was a confident hunter who was able to control a raid and be a good player.
Wolfpack: In the late 50 to 60 era, Wolfpack was one of the best hunters you could find on Freepside.
Ninlew: Confident hunter who loved beta testing new content and showing the top hunters what to except before the next patch would hit.
Upsildor: Hunter that was willing to lead during a time of no leaders.
Minipiggy: Wish I knew what happened to Minipig, Perhaps the best minstrel on the server.
Jayne: Confident and powerful minstrels in her time. Loved to heal raids.
Ophelia: Loved the forums, Loved the moors, and loved Creepside while healing and being a strong minstrel, loved dpsing more than healing.
Dagr: This dwarf minstrel is by far one of the toughest
Feleuriond: A minstrel who went to the dark side! Was a skilled player until the computer couldn't keep up!
Dowhat: strong minstrel to have around, until she went to the dark side!
Fatherdamien: A runekeeper who was so good, he had to delete his character to start from scratch to find a challenge with his class.
Xchantz: One of the first few to be out there on a warden in the moors. Ranks quickly
Arrival: The first warden to become powerful in the moors.
Cellashoam: Knew how to bring out the most dps for Loremasters. Also was very vocal on helping raid leaders throughout the years on thing they can be doing.
Eclipso: The most dominant Loremaster in history, due to being the first Loremaster in the early 50 days. Able to take on creeps in impossible numbers nowadays thanks to the old system of 3 to 1 odds.
Yellowbraids: Vocal on the forums, but also a strong Loremaster. Enjoyed fellowships more than raids and proved how it could be done.
For Creepside I dont know your history as they all blend in together over all these years, Best I can do is mention those who know/knew their class at a point in time when considered best of their class.
Bolesh - A good poison spitter and of particular note for never changing from his Rank 2 skin even when he hit much higher ranks
Needlewitch - I miss Stariya (when you werent hugging stars :P)
*raises mug* Here's to friends long forgotten.
(if any of you old players stop by, send me ingame mail. Would love to catch up)

been in moors too long... Jimmycake
Better to be noticed by actions than words.
I'm still newbie in the moors but imho :
Determining who is the top player of all time requires the judge to look at a variety of factors and play styles. For me, my choices are based on the "total package" of what the player brought to the moors. This includes: success at soloing (bottom line wins versus losses, some people don't have the best turning etc., but do well because of skill rotations and smart play), skill at soloing (in terms of reaction/movement/style), knowledge of class(es), success at group play, leadership, helpfulness, and forum contributions. If it is close I will put in honorable mentions, if not I will just put one name. Here goes.
Captain: Milnor, 2nd r15 freep on the server, unparalleled success and skill as a solo captain, dominant player and knowledgeable player on a variety of classes, deadly forum warrior, main leader of the freep army for an extended period.
Champion: Naugrimir...obviously. First duel-wielding dwarven champion who rode the mirkwood meta-steed to reach r11 while living in Colorado. Simply put, no one else did that. Honorable mention: Gilc, Tarsolo, Kilganon, Webferth, Treelios.
Hunter: Budhorn, First rank 15 on server, major raid leader, founded the hobbit settlement of hoarhollow. Honorable Mention: Goold, Vinlassis, and malagance for his voice.
LM: No clear winner, honorable mentions: Amlost, Cellashoam, Cav-1.
Guard: Lenglamas, honorable mention, skywalker, Erinian.
Mini: Ratslayer, Tacky. Not much to say, just hard to do damage to the people in their groups.
Burg: no clear winner, Jetsu, Nyyx, Blacksparrow.
RK: Strobe. He killed my warg while using a flower.
Warden: Xchantz. Not even close IMO. Huge versatility in terms of classes/factions played, hard to kill, fast to rank, and a leader.
Beornings who have yet to be turned out: Old Goldhead.
Weaver: Venomous, Brugael.
WL: BT...HM..Mora because he would recruit people to my raids and organize them when I was drinking/smoking.
Reaver(s): Neck, TBOM, Stagul, Starburz...too hard to pick, I crushed all of them equally when freeps were OP. Took them to poundtown.
Warg: Pouncival, Nymerica, HM...Attie, Volkk, Shilow's warg.
Blackarrow: Chilicheese. HM: Dhagrum.
That's it. No arguments.
Hmm, this is tough...I don't have enough in game friends to name as the best so I'll do what I can:
This is the best of the best thread that never ends... of the best
My UI causes people to make vomit noises.
I murder people's well thought out names. I always master loot.
I go into robot voice, a lot. So much so that now my Kinship and raiding team call me Navbot, the robot overlord.
I love rp.
I pvp to techno.
champ: none really stand out
Warden: Death dealer
Ba: None standout
