    Lol us liferes got 500 ponts a month, and those toom are by toon not acount.  wow that list has everything covered.  I recon turbine is going to make a killing as folks are going to watn all that stuff, especially the tomes.  So much for advantage items not being in the store.

    I wonder what happens to us perfectionist who did all the deeds already, there was a huge debate asking for retroactive points, that never was solved.

    Oh well, I wish you guys who stick with it luck.

    I hope that makes sense.

    You really do know this very well.

    Yeah you can still buy boxed version to upgrade to MoM...SoM was always only Digital Downlaod.

    Last question, I promise.

    Is it better to buy before the FTP or is there no difference?

    Thanks again.

    Not sure what i am going to do.

    I am going on a trip with the wife this 3 day weekend; kids going to the grandparents house.....should be very nice.

    I have a business trip later in the month.

    I am going to be out of pocket this month when it comes to gaming.

    I have been thinking of trying to get a group togther for Vanguard.  I noticed that a group of people just came back now though so I am not sure if that will work.  I may be missing the timeline on V:SoH.  Since LOTRO is going FtP that may be the next best option.

    I figure i will put a V:SoH post up at the end of the month and find out if anyone wants to put togther a group.  If it flames out I think LOTRO is the next best thing.

    Yeah they are both great games, I just actually renewed my VG sub today to see how the game is doing after two years...I just started a necro.


     


    The only thing VG suffers from is from a severe lack f population but the people who do play are very nice and welcoming so they make up for the small numbers.

     OK I think you misunderstood what i was trying to get across.

    I realize you get 500 tp per account.

    What I was trying to say is that if you buy a stat tome the 394 tp one for example, well that's not for the entire account that's for one toon.  So saying that its a bit costly,  

    See you get 500 tp per account but the tomes only go per toon, and the price is just crazy, but that's been highly debated already in the lotro forums. I'm just saying 500 a month does nothing when you have those prices in the store.

  • I think the store is awesome. You know why? Goldfarmers will hardly touch this game because they can't compete as much anymore unless they hack the game!! :D Awesome.

    It depends. Yes if you buy stat tomes it wouldn't get you far. However if your a lifer like me who doesnt own mirkwood, i can buy it in less than 2 months with what they give me. Im more than fine with having to wait a month or 2 before they give me that expansion i lack for basically free(lifers get 1k points initially + what other VIPs get).

    And otherwise 500 TP points amount to 6k points per year, looking at that list they could release 2 expansions a year without me ever having to pay a single $. Since im the patient kind of guy i will probably wait for sales to get stuff, so i would get even more for my points.

     

    Btw according to this 5640 TPs are currently known to be earnable ingame, per character. Maybe that helps to put those storeprices in context.

    500 points for VIP (sub), 1000 for Lifetimers. Per month.

    Holy crap, you can't do anything with that many points per month. It's not even worth it to get a sub.


    Well except for the fact that you get all the content in the game with a sub..


    .


    500=$5 woth of points.


     


    Sub + 500 points is better value than just buying 1500 points.


     


    also if you buy a bulk month then it is only $10 a month.

    What exactly do you get with a sub? And is there for anything special for people who own the game, but just aren't subbed at the moment?

    Edit: Nevermind, question long answered.

    IMO this is very retarded move and hopefully other games won't follow the example.Like it was already discussed, to many valuable stuff in the store ... and to expensive. I honestly think life time subs got duped big time with this.

    Good thing though is that this is mainly a PvE game and in such it might work, because it is not all about competition.

    lifetime is the best offer you can ever get for a loyal mmo-er for an mmo that doesnt quit. seriously, if there is one mmo that will last it should be LOTRO because it is based on the original book for all MMOs. So I expect it to last at least 5 more years, and hell yeah then I'm getting my money's worth ;).

  • nihcenihce Member Posts: 539

    Well, the thing with life offer is that normally this means that subscriber who chose it is "set for life" - which means that appart from expansions he is not expecting to pay a dime for the game. BUT when you make a F2P system like that one in LOTR - to stay competitve (ok there is not much to compete for in LOTRO) you need to invest cash even if you paid life sub.

    free 2 play my %#^

    everything cost money. I recently downloaded the game to try when it went f2p and really liked it so yesterday I decided I would buy the game and subsrcibe as I saw they had an adventure pack with the original game and both expansions for $30 at the turbine store the day it went f2p but turbine has pulled all digital sales from thier site and from D2drive also. you can't buy the game anymore and they force you to get the expansions from thier lotro store with turbine pionts which will cost $30 per expansion now plus the vip subsrciption. they basiclly made the game twice as expensive to play before it went "f2p"

    very sad very very sad

    You always had to buy the expansion...

    Anyway buy MoM from amazon or something..it is cheaper.

    that is true, there really isn't any "actual" competition. However, lifetime subs did not get screwed over. to put it bluntly, at this point, I wish I had purchased a lifetime sub. To that end, if they offered one now (which they won't) I'd buy it.

    I would too; I wish I had got it when it was available.

    I'm thought I'd come back and see if there are more people and the F2P model seems really sctechy to me, everything does cost more and they keep pushing pay content "that's old stuff" on you. not happy at all with it.  

  • towanitowani Member Posts: 114

    I won't lie, I didn't read anything beyond the first page... but the prices seem expensive to me.
