    Question [Suggestion] Commendations, new engine and more..

    The Commendations
    Ability to buy the Commendations in the store!
    Examples:


    • 10 Turbine Points for 100 Commendations
    • 50 Turbine Points for 350 Commendations
    • 100 Turbine Points for 500 Commendations
    • 150 Turbine Points for 750 Commendations
    • 250 Turbine Points for 1.200 Commendations
    • 450 Turbine Points for 1.500 Commendations
    • 650 Turbine Points for 1.700 Commendations
    • 750 Turbine Points for 2.000 Commendations
    • 850 Turbine Points for 2.500 Commendations
    • 925 Turbine Points for 2.700 Commendations
    • 1.000 Turbine Points for 3.000 Commendatios

    Ability to unlock higher Commendations cap in the store! (Free for VIPs)
    Examples:

    • 550 Turbine Points for +5.000 cap (15.000) (You can buy this twice)
    • 1.000 Turbine Points for +10.000 cap (20.000) (You can buy this once)

    Since much things what cost Commendations are pretty expensive, this might help a bit.
    I mean, 500 Commendations for a single corruption trait...? And 7,500 For an appearance? I find that too expensive if you're bad at killing and have done every map quest. But that's my opinion.
    The engine
    If Turbine has the money for it etc, maybe they could buy a new engine. It would be cool to see Lotro suddenly change into the graphics of Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag.
    But my plan's different. Lotro won't change, there will be Lotro II. It's the same as this game, but with much beter quality and stuff.
    This prevents people leaving this game because of the better graphics that their video cards can't run.
    At last portrait frames:
    I'd really appreciate it, if Turbine could make the Monster Players earn new portraits for ranking and rating.
    Right now, the Rating does nothing else than giving the killer more infamy. But we can change that...:
    Monster Players:
    At Rank 5 - 7: Elite Frame
    If
    the Rating is at or above 1,250 then: Rare Elite Frame

    At Rank 8 - 10: Elite-Master frame
    If
    the Rating is at or above 1,350 then: Rare Elite-Master Frame

    At Rank 11 - 13: Nemesis Frame
    If
    the Rating is at or above 1,500 then: Rare Nemesis Frame

    At Rank 14 - 15: Arch-Nemesis Frame
    If the Rating is at or above 1,600 then: Rare Arch-Nemesis Frame


    Idk if freeps would get them, because freeps already have event frames. But if you'd still like that as well, just type it in the comments

    Thanks for reading!

    I would be fine with the suggestion for TP conversion to Commendations, and increase cap, only if the armor sets were locked behind at least rank 2 for Freeps. You seem to have tailored this idea mainly to creeps, but to my understanding, creeps can buy most traits/skills with TP already. Since commendations are Account-bound, this would give a way for Freeps to get basically the only level-cap set armor for only money. If there was a rank lock behind Freep gear, all of it, then I wouldn't have a problem with this, because it could bring in more income for relatively cheap changes/additions I'd expect (I only mean Commendations, not the other subjects). My opinion on the matter. I don't PvMP very often, so I don't know how others would feel, but I am just bringing out a big issue I see.

    The engine I have no idea about, but I know it wouldn't be as easy as just having the money to do so. Graphics improvements are often welcomed, as long as they don't worsen lag, which seems to be a specifically big problem in the moors already.

    I like the idea of portrait frames, and it's been suggested before. Not sure how the Rare part would work if you could only get it under certain conditions, once.
    [center]100 Burglar - Baldigar, 100 Minstrel - Desmio, 100 LM - Cartontolos, 100 Warden - Handorost, 100 Beorning - Geirvarinn, 100 RK - Thrandstar, 100 Captain - Aeganros, 100 Guardian - Heornar, 58 Hunter - Saerielle[/center]

    1. That's kinda an issue indeed.. But I guess we can find another way around, I'm not sure what yet though...
    2. Also true, but that's why I said like a second version of the game. Lotro II.
    3. I also really would like to see it in-game. The rare part, will be like this:
    When you have the elite-master portrait, and your rating is below 1,350 you'll just have the normal one. Once you reach that, or above it'll change to rare. Same for all the other frames.

    Thanks for your reply

    I think that the portrait frames being attached to rating would created a mentality of starhugging to save your rating. But it would be good to see alot of that stuff happen.

    Question Quest Cooldowns...

    I just thought of another suggestion:

    Quest cooldowns:
    Well, the cooldowns are ridiculous. 24 Hours for only one quests.
    These 2 things came up in myself with some help from MPers on Vilya:

    • Quests cooldowns back to 2 - 4 hours.

    It's very annoying to wait, when you've done a quest, that long.
    I need to wait until the next day until I can continue. I can't
    even continue in the morning! I still have to wait 1 hour and 52 minutes.
    And that's school time! So I'm only able to complete quests after school.
    And after school I don't have much time left... Even the simpliest
    quests take very long. (Such as: Poisoning the Hoardale)

    • Some quests without cooldown.

    This might sound ridiculous as well, but if the thing above is not possible
    I'd suggest this. This makes it easier when you have done every quest,
    to still gain some more infamy/commendations.
    I also thought of this:

    • More Commendations as reward for quests.

    A pretty long time ago, you'd get 50 - 100 Commendations every quest.
    I'd like this back.

    • Quest rewards depending on how hard it was.

    If the quest is pretty tough (Such as Capture an Outpost, Killing a CG etc.)
    You'll get more Commendations and Infamy than normally.
    If it's easier (Such as Poisoning the Hoardale) You'll get less.
    I know, this is already implemented. But this should be combined with some
    of above.

    What if it's attached to killing blows or kills? Or kill/death rating?

    I like the thought of a new engine for the game, but there is no need for a lotro 2. Bring the game down for maybe a month, implement the new hardware in the servers [as in the new engine] and incrementally ramp up the graphics so they compare with any new mmo while hopefully keeping lag to a minimum. I actually don't think too much needs to be done on the graphics front, so if they had a new engine they wouldn't have to go overboard, make lotro a bit more shiny, make the whole world feel alive and versatile and your on to a winner.

    I can answer part of this, though not in a way you want to hear.

    New Engine.
    A total non-starter. The same for a new graphics engine. What you're really asking for is a complete, ground up, rewrite of every inch of land, every quest, every instance, every script, every animation, every piece of art, every last thing about the game. That's not an upgrade, it's a new game entirely.

    They have the money for it, really??? They don't even have the cash to do raids & you expect them to get a new engine.

    Hey Turbine get out that magic wand

    Personally, I think it's a great set of ideas - with two notes:

    (1) No way that (as others have said) that they're going to do that sort of engine rework at this point, considering the dev layoffs and whatnot. You and I may want it, but I want $40 million tax free in my bank account, and that isn't happening either.
    (2) Knocking down coolldown time for quests that much is probably a non-starter because - well, it would put a serious crimp in the more casual player, and there'
    s more of them. I agree that a reduction is in the best case for the game...

    Me, I like the rest of the ideas a lot - also would like something to be able to do with all the Gold I've piled up. As a R8 warg, with like 200 Gold in my 'pocket', I have nothing I can really use it *for*. Exchange it for something useful....

    Just need to point out the fact that this makes no financial sense at all. Why spend 1,000tp on 3,000 Comms when you can spend 100 x 10TP (also 1000tp) and get 10,000 Comms.

    I'm having a bit of trouble following the thought process then.

    But more fundamental: I think buying commies for TP is too much pay to win.

    I guess this whole game is p2w already. But okay.

    But it's still very hard to get them, atleast when you're not good at fighting freeps/creeps and not good at completing quests and stuff...
