Happy Yule and soon to be New Year to all! As this year comes to a close, and we look forward to what the new year will bring, I wanted to take a small break from the festivities and reflect on this past year.  It certainly has been a remarkable one!

Update: In less than two days, the petition already has over 150 supporters.

On Par with Radiance?  What Has the Pursuit of Group Content Cost Us?

Jul 3, 2014

Greetings, everyone! 🙂 From its very beginning, the path to Mordor was fraught with peril for those of the Fellowship of the Ring.  Likewise, the path toward Mordor taken by Turbine also has its risks and perils.  How much development to put toward one aspect of gameplay over another cannot be an easy decision to make! There have always been some who have...

8 Changes Epic Battles Need

8 Changes Epic Battles Need

Jan 17, 2014

Epic battles seem to be a dividing topic in the LOTRO community as they stand.  Some players love them, some players hate them and other players tried the battles and don’t care for them.  I find myself somewhere in the middle.  Epic battles in groups are enjoyable but I think they need a lot of work to come close to other end-game content.  I decided to...

New Classes

One thing many people bring up when talking about things Turbine might do to encourage sustained play and having players create alts is adding new classes to the game. I am all for adding new classes, however I don’t expect Turbine will be adding anymore – but I still think it would be fun to speculate or talk about what we would like to see added....
