Lord of the rings online
Downtime took really long. I won several plays on Master of Orion 2. All I need there is good start for Sakkras – and then, my battleships, armed with Mauler devices, Achilles target units would destroy anything.
Lotro came live, I asked Kinship for help and our leader arrived. We fought our way to Naerbrand prison, managed to find one artifact…and then let ourselves to be killed. Sorry, exit was too hard to find. Then I finished long quest line, received some reward from Gandalf. After that – talk with Aeorzen, who now wants to receive pardon from Gondor. A pity, I expected at least one bad guy to be bad guy to the end, even up to accepting his own death, but remaining loyal to the lost cause. Received another quest, but this time did not take it.
Kinnies helped really much with advice on my Minstrel’s setup at Mordor. Now I know where I am strong, where I am really weak. They also give valuable advice on armour and essences.
We have confirmed that ash/Light opf Erendil items won’t be landscape drops. “It was not inteded”. Also, black keys are bound, because otherwise “it was not intended”. Next, we would surely see black keys removed from loot, because being in loot “it was not intended”. 1 day cooldown introduced on some dungeons, because otherwise “it was not intended”. Players are really unsatisfied, feedback is negative, but who cares? Just not developers, they do not play their own game, they do not care about feedback. And they do know most players have nowhere to go, Lotro is still one of the best mmos with unique atmosphere and nice player base.
A pity, such good mmo has such non-listening developers. One wrong decision after another, never listening to feedback, never playing their own game.
However, right now I have lots of things to do: quest in second Mordor region, do all deeds here, maybe ask Kinship help for Barad Dur. Next – maybe some Lotro points grind on Xinderbor.
Life is almost good in Lotro once again.
