Hey global affairs. You may or may not remember the days of playing lord of the rings online with me but I recently decided to say fuck it and venture back into the game and thought of you all. My names konner, characters in game were payaso, bobmarlee, couple others. Played with stio most. He still around? Anyways to those of you I recognize who appear to still be on here, hello and hope to chat with ya and get us back in game playing together because why the fuck not?
Stio and Biker haven't made it over to the new forum yet I don't think, but yes, we used to all be in the same guild over in LOTRO. All my characters ended up on Landroval after the merges/purges. (Eringlade and Stilgaard)
I even still have some screenshots of one thieving bastard in the Guild who took things out of the Guild hall with my crafting tag on it and put it in their own house, then lied to me and said they bought it. (I never put my crafted furniture on the auction house )
I haven't played in a few years since I moved over 100% Mac and their Mac client now sucks so bad I can't even get it installed to where it will work now.
I actually just ripped out LOTRO by the roots and reinstalled fresh, apparently when they changed company's hands the old launcher I had installed was no longer good fro anything, I can at least get to my character selection screen again.
Just need to remember how to get my skins to work again and oh yeah, how to play.
Remember Andy and Leon pretty well glad to see you guys been a long long time! Hopefully I’ll find a way to track stio down and bug him. Too bad some douche stole stuff in the kinship hall that’s funny though. Used to play the gel out of that game.
Back on and have all my old characters and they treat lifetime members like gods now lol. There are legendary servers for the vip accounts that are throwback severs basically to when the game was pretty much just the base shadows of angmar and level cap is 50. Less little kiddos and douchebags from the looks but what do I know. My main characters ended up on beandywine after the merge of servers or whatever happened while I was not playing doing that life bullshit. Having fun so far playing again.
Cheers to some throwback lotro tales and fun times, hope everyone is healthy and happy.
I need to fire it up myself. I was one of the few who are lifetime members. Bought it back for like 300 dollars.
Same here, probably one of the best gaming investments I ever bought.
I'm still considered a VIP member without having to pay for it in a monthly fee, I just need to pay for expansions, and with my yearly allowance of coins, I always have enough, I just bought the Mordor expansion, even though I was no where near even getting completed with the mounted combat expansion prior due to crashing on my Mac client. It was only 2500 coins
I see 2 new things already,
1. VIP members get free "premium" housing (no rent/upkeep after initial purchase) but it appears that those are not the regular ones but something new down in Gondor. 2. There is a new class to purchase/unlock - High Elf.
They also appear to be readying a 64 bit client for Mac this year.
