Dec 16th 2011 12:36PM Dragon Nest is my game of choice. Other than DC Universe Online (which is also free to play) it is the only game that satisfies my twitchy combat itch.
I prefer DCUO over DN, but still play both. DCUO is just a lot more well made plus come on, flying super heroes pew pew! They are also just too different to directly compete with each other, while being somewhat similar in the ways they play. I also prefer them both to Vindictus which I think is actually pretty bland.
Dec 14th 2011 3:19PM I hate to be like everyone else, but I will go with a Sith Inquisitor and start melting people with pew pew lightning, all the while laughing manically IRL.
Also plan on picking on some guy named Luke and trying to get him to convert to the Dark Side.
Dec 14th 2011 7:55AM Wow. If I get this, I would not sub to TOR.... For a few months.
But this would be cool to get. Good luck to whoever is the lucky one!
Dec 14th 2011 7:53AM I don't mean to be a jerk or troll. But this game is still up and running? Man, I was subbing til the whole billing fiasco which ended up lowering my credit score. They fixed it but my credit score was still dinged. Horrible, horrible accounting.
Ok game though, but so many better ones out there, why bother? And this is still P2P! Maybe if it were F2P I would give it a try, but unlikely unless they purty it up some and fix all the glitches/exploits (which they may have, I have not played in probably over a year? Whenever that billing issue happened).
Dec 14th 2011 7:50AM The game is awesome as is. I have been really enjoying it lately. Can't wait till F2P so I can save some money and sub to TOR.
Sep 14th 2010 9:47AM Oh, but Khorrax they do change!
At level 20 you also unlock skirmishes, which are your own private dungeon encounters you can somewhat customize and run solo or with friends.
The game also has some nice instancing, and the later quests (the Moria one when you play as a doomed dwarf jump to my mind) are pretty friggin epic.
It really is too bad that you don't see any of the cool stuff till about level 48.... There is a small taste of what is to come with skirmishes and classic instances, but Moria and Mirkwood are where it's at.
Drop a few bucks on the xpacs once you hit 45 and never look back. An epic, free to play game for a $19.99 one time fee? Yes please!
Sep 14th 2010 9:25AM Any more keys?
Could someone please send me one to firstname.lastname@example.org?
Would be greatly appreciated.
Jul 15th 2010 2:11PM Actually, it's not the Russians that are controlling the pricing, etc. It is gPotato that are controlling all the pricing, etc.
Play the game on a Russian server and see the difference. All the items are available on the AH for very cheap, because the cash shop sells them for pennies anyway. Seven of my guild members switched to the Russian game and love it, but I refuse to play through a proxy and in a language I don't understand.
But who cares about this game anyway? I am in the LOTRO F2P beta and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. The cash shop is a convenience, and there are already people that are unlocking higher level content and even expansion packs just by building up their toons. Looks like Turbine will have DDO 2.0 on their hands when they finally make Lord of the Rings Online free to play. I was one of the people that did not drop a penny on DDO, and just bought things on sale with earned points. I will be doing the same thing in LOTRO.... And from the looks of it, it is much easier to do it in LOTRO than in DDO.
Jul 12th 2010 6:24PM I have played WoW, EQ2, AoC, WAR, and a lot of other MMO's on the market. This is the only game that managed to tear me away from the crack that is WoW. I still go back to WoW to check the new expansion packs, but LOTRO is a much better game over all. I even like the PvMP play a lot better than the instanced stuff most other games use.
Apr 13th 2010 11:16AM Thank you for the kind words.
I actually have a few characters on Brandywine already, I just stopped playing LOTRO to play WAR. Been with WAR since launch and this is how they thank me, lol.
On the up side, now I get to try out the new skirmish system that I have been putting off because I was so hooked on WAR. I hear they are insanely fun.
I play an MMO for fun, a little escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sometimes my wife will get on, and we will play together. But when my escape slams the hell out of my real life, well it's time to ditch that escape. At this point a nasty drug habit would have been cheaper, heh.
