turbine sucks as a company. All their games are mediocre and are made just to milk profit off of existing franchises. Their games have evolved from decent to just plain out "bleh", furthermore they guarantee that no good LOTR or D&D mmorpgs will be made for a certain amount of years.
This game looks like wow. Wupti f...ing do Mr en4o an mmo that looks like wow. Have you reported this to anyone? Cause you have just stumpeld upon a great secret!! Here is something for you all MMO-games try to look like wow and wow tried to look like all previous MMOs.
Looks sick, too bad I don't have it. It's a monthly pay right? Either that or set time so I save my money for other things. I'm a huge LOTR fan so if it wasn't so costly I'd get it in a heart beat... *Sigh*
I had wanted to play a melee class here, but the Guardian, Champion, etc just didn't jive with me. Tried the Loremaster as well...been a caster for far too long in other games, so burned out in that respect. Then I saw this. First thought was Gil-galad and his spear. Second thought was I wants it for my own, lol. This may be the class that brings me back to Lotro.
Not to post about a different game here, but in comment to Haagendaz. I don't get why you're crashing or lagging that much, but give it a break. You realize that as of this week (on the 18th) it has only been out for one month compared to WoW's like 5 years. So give it a chance, it's only improving vastly every week, and soon it will definately be on top. And that goes for all of you, don't be biased to a game that's had more time under it's belt then a brand new one. Go into it optimistically and you'll be very happy! The same goes for LOTRO, MoM is going to be amazing!
Very good and enjoyable game. Generally, very nice player base. I got in too late though. Everyone had already left and it was difficult to get groups. Monster play was only doing more quests, without other players. I only lasted a few months in it. It's easily the most stable MMO I've played and if it wasn't for WOTLK coming out, I would play this one.
Going to be a great expansion for a great game. Most here talking smack about it probably haven't played it or are scared of another MMO dragging interest away from WAR due to actual content BEYOND The raid. BTW they do have a damn good tech support group and hardly any real issues it's a solid engine.
I noticed there are a lot of LOTRO haters here...why?? Lotro is easily one of best MMO's ever made...I mean, what about LOTRO do you dislike so much that you say "this game sucks"?? I'll admit this trailer was shoddy and hastily made, but the actual game is amazing...
The trailer looked kinda lame, but try playing the game past level 6 and stop thinking of WoW so much when you play it and it will seem much, much better.
I played the Beta and I can assure everyone this expansion is not going to dissapoint. Easily the best PvE MMORPG game I have ever played (I have played a lot of them). The Warden class was alright but I was more impressed by the Rune-keeper... fun times ahead, that's for sure. :)
I'm going to have to agree with the crowd on this class. With the changes coming to the heavy armored champion it'll be a far superior off-tank than this ever will be. I really don't want to have to use a cheat sheet during a raid to look and see what move combinations I have to do to pull off a certain gambit move. Oh and Jazilla wardens existed in the books Haldir the elf from Lorien was a warden of the wood and also the Dunadain rangers and wardens.... And the warden is hardly a paragon if you took a captain from lotro which has all the group buffs and slight healing gave him a spear and shield which they can equip that would be an equivalent of the paragon.
Wardens are not really going to replace guardians. They only use medium armour, for one. They're sounding to be more of a complement, a mix of a guardian and a hunter in some ways. They have some buffing and basic healing abilities as well... a good solo class. Combat is handled by a combo system of sorts called Gambits. I hesitate to compare it to Guild Wars there... for that and 20 other reasons.
i gave up on gw....... i was addicted to it...so decided to stop playing it..stopped a few months ago
I must say, LOTRO is probably the best MMO out there right now. I wonder how this class will effect Guardians...
umm, couldn't they make a class that sticks with the books? Maybe a shapeshifter class like Beorn? They could have come up with something more original than this. This character is just a copy of the paragon in Guild Wars anyway. Lame. Bring on Guild Wars 2!
Well WTH ... So what becomes of Guardians now huh looks like im gonna have to jump back on and find out what all the fuss is about. If they screwed over Guardians so they can add another Melee class then they can shove the game where the sun don't shine
