    While I appreciate your snarkiness, really I do, this is also not very informative.



    For instance, I tried out SWTOR before moving on to GW2. This thread is an attempt to find out what happened to the other fine people, like myself, that made this server so great back in the day.

    I had the same question on my home server after I returned from a 2 yr break, and got pounded by the new pvmp'ers because I stated the "new" crowd has ruined the game...lol.

    I've been on the same server since I started, with the same two characters.
    I have noticed that the starting regions are pretty much dead. I see virtually no one in Bree, Lone Lands, or the Trollshaws these days if I run through them just for fun.
    Rohan and West Gondor seem to be a bit more lively, which is understandable.

    Hi Vhael,

    I stopped playing Lotro on a daily basis about two years ago for a variety of reasons. But, I still pop in from time to time to say hi to kinnies & friends and to pay my rent I've played SWTOR, Diablo 3, STO and a few other games but none have had the lasting hold that Lotro still has for me. One day, I swear, I will return to Middle Earth!

    Cheers,
    Jaadzira bint Halla, Haradrim Lore-mistress

    Funny, someone was recruiting for Forgotten Treasury the other night, and right away I thought of "There's a Treasury??"

    I just recently took my Beorning through Moria - first time I've taken a toon through there since 2009. I got the Wings of Shadow quest and made the required 'Where is the Bat Cave?' question. Instead of 'UNDER STATELY WAYNE MANNER', I got a vague comment in world chat about remembering a quest in Moria with it and an honest tell trying to describe to me where it was.

    I died a little inside...

    Must have been a teenager- the teenagers I know have no idea what the Bat Cave is....at least one of them thinks of the Steve Miller Band song when you mention the Joker though...

    ran across some doofus in ESO zone chat trying to sell a ridiculous helmet.... my comment of Isengard bids five sparked no humor... figured at least a few lotro folks might have been about...

    Open beta. Still play, not as regularly as I once did-- do other things on another server on occasion + RL.

    Joined for Tolkien and stay for Tolkien, but not as on as often perhaps due to lack of new group endgame. Was on a bit more for TC stuff admittedly, but... not quite the same.

    Lots of old kinnies from Hall of Fire have moved on to other games. Wildstar is popular now; was also GW2 and TOR.

    Now I'm seeing some familiar faces!

    Hey Jaad!

    I'm in agreement with you. The community in Lotro was like no other I've come across. While I'm playing GW2 and have met a ton of cool new people, my heart will always go back to the old days of Lotro.

    Whether it was running raids or just trolling people in glff, fun times were had by er...me...



    A quick nod to my old kins: Knights of Amon Sul, Animus, and Nemesis. May time find you all well and happy!


    PM me for contact updates.


    Cheers!

Most of my old kinmates (Hall of Fire and Preying Mantis) have moved on to other games. Most of them were pretty dedicated endgame players, and, well...that's just not the direction this game has gone in.

    This lifetime founder hasn't gone anywhere. Still rockin' it on Elendilmir with wonderul buddies. Trusty familiar ones (like above) I've known for some years now. And now, new ones who I consider a treasure just as much as the oldies. Not creeping as much as I used to, but my LM has been buried with so many things to do with a very busy kinship. And since she has the audacity gear, I have on occasion brought her out to the Moors. I'm so glad for Norb and others, trying to revive E's Moors. (IF (big If)LI's would stop being such jerks on Reforge and give me my 5 majors! I'll drag my LM out more often.)

    I got into ESO, been unhappy with the game since faildormore but keep wanting to come back and hope for something different. Its kind of like rereading a Game of Thrones novel... you hope a few things come out different but they stay the same.....

    Took a new job in a charming community called Pollok Pines, California. Lately we have this marvelous new lighting system along Highway 50 and throughout the mountains. It also is great for keeping warmer than you might want to be if you get too close. In fact it made my cabin so warm that work sent me off to a different cabin in a place called Pleasant Valley. The air quality is rather unpleasant at the moment. But years of forest mismanagement coupled with the exact opposite in rampant environmentalism kinda made a bad situation worse, as most uncompromising situations often are. Desolation is still beautiful and might throw some photos of it up at some point.

    Cynicism aside I see my kids a ton more than I did in the past few years, I play my guitars a ton more, picked up a Sheraton II, my first electric, and love the hell out of her. New Laptop and so much damn overtime I am starting to turn it down more.

    Do I miss the game as it was pre Helm's Deep? Hell yeah. I even put it on the new computer but keep getting error 201. trying a reinstall atm... maybe play eventually. If I do the two places I want to hit first are the Moors and Evendim(still my favorite place in game). Like the Doctor "I will come back. Yes I will come back. Simply go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine." That's the original Doctor, Hartnell....

    In the meantime Good Hunting.

    I still see people on a daily to weekly basis that I've played with since 2007. Others have followed their own path or sailed into the West, so to say.

    Hey there Papa!

    WvW is the only thing I do in GW2 anymore. I see you there too (friends list). You're in HB.


    They were the last two I kept in touch with, so that's where they went...


    Perhaps a Nemesis reunion once again in the next game...?
