Human, Elf, Dwarf, HOBBIT!!??

I've been thinking about this game and the characters, there are elfs and dwarfs AND HOBBITS!!
who plays with hobbits when you can play with elfs or dwarfs.
I think its not fair for those who plays with hobbit...
And there is no good "class" for hobbit, somekind of rogues or something...
When you play with hobbit and see there is an elf coming who is twice as longer than hobbit and the elf shoots hobbit to the head... What chances has the hobbit!? ::::21::

     Go to your local libary. Ask the libarian about a little known author named JRR Tolkien. Go take out all the books they have by him. Or go to your local bookstore and buy them

     - The Silmarilian

     - Book of Lost Tales 1

     - Book of Lost Tales 2

     - Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (especially the last couple of chapters when the Hobbit army fought the evil humans, trolls, orcs, and... elves!)

      Those books feature Hobbits in action. Nothing like getting your legs chopped off at the knees. Also Hobbits and Elves do not fight. BUT if they did, a Hobbit would have as good a chance of winning in a melee fight as an Elf. Just like a short human vs a tall human. A Hobbit would come up to an Elf's waist or even shoulder (yes there are tall Hobbits too.)

    I've played a hobbit *halfling* in Everquest.

    I've played a hobbit *halfling* in DnD. *Neverwinter Nights etc*

    They're just fun to play and they have a great lore behind them.

    Its partly about roleplaying a happy-go-lucky character, thats all ways getting into trouble.

    I sure hope Middle Earth Online is going to expand the classes available for each race.  Right now it's looking pretty lame.  It'd be nice if you could be a hobbit sorceror -- or at least a hobbit fighter.  C'mon, even in Tolkien's word the hobbits have to have some sort of defense force!

    I think they should make Hobbits like Jedi in SWG; very hard to become one. I mean, the protaganists of the Star Wars movies were the Jedi, while those of the LotR movies were the Hobbits. Instead of light sabres, they could all have rings of power and that elf bread. The cost of being one is that Gollum is always after you. Makes sense, right? ::::33::

    Well hobbits is similar to gnomes in WoW? I don't know but i think so. :P

    They will, don't worry! The game is a long way from release. They've got a lot more info on stuff like classes that they haven't released.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    A Hobbit sorcerer? Are you crazy? It's bad enough that there are human sorcerers! In Tolkien there aren’t people walking around shooting fireballs.

    well, there is if i'm not mistaken... Sauroman (pardon if misspelling) anyway i've played a RGP adventure, based on Middle Earth RGP. And i can say that Hobbits are both tough and fast. Even if they didn't do any large amount of damage in close combat/meele they were just as good as any of the other player races... and seriously... A Tolkien based mmorpg WITHOUT playable Hobbits?! no no.

    okay one its Saruman and two he does not fire fireballs. Personally im really annoyed that they are putting sorcerer style characters into the game. In the books there is a council of human wizards which mount to like 20 max and then theres the odd Elf who isnt a wizard per say but has subtle, supernatural powers. The whole point of magic in Tolkeins world is that its subtle and mysterious. Its going to ruin it to have thousands of people running aound 'pwnz0ring' mobs with fireballs.

    Look it's cool to play with Hobbits and that stuff but he is right when there comes an Uruk-Hai and he just touch you you;r dead..
    But it's also fun to play with an hobbit so you can hide for evrything!!::::01::::::02::::::01::::::02::

    I agree. Here's to hoping they don't bastardize Tolkien's implementation of "magic".

    theres a rouge class wich they would be good at, but wouldn't it be awsome to see a hobbit warrier takin down everything it comes up against.
  • dragnsmokedragnsmoke Member Posts: 18
    I do have to agree overall though...  I think there will definately be a push for other races.  I myself have not decided what I'd like to play but I can most likely say it would not be a Hobbit.  I think maybe they will create a huge need for them though to sort of balance it out.  I think in every game there are races that, however decent stats, are not as popular either by appearence or status.  However, MMO history shows that they can do things to fix an imbalance and I have faith that these guys will do just that.

    you know without hobbits we can't smoke..........

    Plus their is a lot of MMORPGs with really small people yeah their gay and everyone hates them but theirs a small population of people who want to own with a 4 foot tall weakling.

    stoners?

    i know i would.

    I really hope that *insert game name here* will be the first game to ever live up to all of its pre-release promises, maintain a manageable hype level and have a clean release. Just don't expect me to hold my breath.
