Obviously, F2P is for casual players. Serious players would opt for the VIP account. I disagree with your 'letting it rot' opinion. The F2P model increased Turbine's income.
I agree. With my WOW account, I was paying even if I wasn't playing. As a casual player I felt obligated to log in just to get my money's worth. However, I feel Turbine's execution of F2P is a little flawed. I tried the VIP account and still felt the need to pay out an additional $20 the first month. If LOTRO wants to compete with WOW, the VIP account should be equivalent to a WOW subscription.

Also, I would tell my first level self that Ironforge is NOT on the same continent as Ashenvale (unfortunately true).

So, you abuse them to make them stronger. I didn't know GG Allin played WOW. Also, it's not child abuse if you use an open hand.

Thank you for your post. It was very refreshing. There are so many nerdraging jackasses in WOW it is easy to forget that there are cool/rational/helpful people too. I hope I play on the same server as you. Keep up the good work:)
Mar 17th 2010 11:22AM I agree with Dawnseven:) This post was meant for the first Ryan.
Mar 17th 2010 11:11AM One of my pet peeves is when some anonymous person on the internet makes a leap of logic and then nerdrages about it. The article never claims to be international. Indeed, they stated they were unable to accept international submissions (though they would like to). This disproves your assertion that they are ignorant of people outside the US. I find it a little hypocritical and a tad ironic that you equate US with North American. At its broadest usage "North American" includes many countries from Panama to Greenland and many Caribbean Islands in between. Even at its most colloquial usage it still includes Canada. Finally, it reflects poorly on you to pass judgement on 300 million people because you once saw a stupid person on the internet.
Feb 8th 2010 10:39AM Hi Mike,
First, I'd like to introduce you to the capslock button...far left, fourth one down.
Second, congrats on figuring out what a tip is for. BTW, writing your reason for the low tip was both childish and redundant.
Feb 8th 2010 10:07AM John, I'd like to commend you for being one of the few 'anti-tippers' who understand that doing away with the tipping culture in this country would raise all menu prices by 15-20%. Most don't understand that the tip is part of the 'cost' of a meal in a restaurant. While I'm not opposed to adopting a more European model (the wage of the wait staff included in the price on the menu), tipping is a good way to motivate wait staff to be more attentive. If you get poor service in a European restaurant you still pay them the same amount. And, an open note to all non-tippers out there...if you are unable or unwilling to pay 15-20% on top of the check amount then I suggest you choose a place that is within your budget...McDonalds perhaps?
