Title says it all, the new progression style server goes live Thursday! Looking forward to reliving the experience from the beginning and the influx of peeps it will bring while leaving the f2p trolls and enjoying a better /world chat, although I'm sure there will be some just not as many.

    You sound like a pleasant person.
    I really want to give this restart a try now.

    should have made one for pre launch lifetime subs only. I know its even more 'exclusive' but it would have certainly brought back more people I think.

    Please explain this progression server...I'm Unaware !  

    Before I go investigating will it: 
    -be 5 year old like easy like retail ?.... If so I'm not interested.  
    -Will the cash shop be dropped?... if not I'm not interested.  
    -Will it be vanilla, or is it a cheap gimmick like SOE played with EQ2 about two years ago ! 


    Is it the standard trick ?

    It's a progression server, not a Vanilla server. Same modern game (with the cash shop) with progressive expansion releases.

    So no, you wouldn't be interested.

    I'm pretty sure vanilla is an impossibility, literally. They're just now, years later, finally detangling the progression mess they made by moving progression past 60. That's why I think real progression in the game stops at 65. Everything after that is smoke, mirrors, and numbers.

    Some of vanilla would be cool, some would not. I actually like a lot about the new trait system over the old. CC was a complete mess in Shadows too, fun but so broken. DoTs calculations were right behind them with unlimited BPE hot on its tails.

    If I had one unrealistic wish for this server it would be no cash shop period. Stop. Removing the cash shop would alleviate any number of ills unless they worked really hard at sticking them back in (loot crates with rare key drops ala Neverwinter).

    I'll be there though and am totally interested in running some content. I'm not that great which is why I've played LM (easy mode) all these years. Still unsure what class I'm rolling and I might unlock High Elf since I bought that xpac ala carte with TP. I'll make a decision on class soon.

    If it brings an influx of people back I believe it will be because those people didn't watch the videos or actually read about it.

    It kept the devs busy for a while though, so that's good!

    As a day one veteran I got nothing but the middle finger for you buddy.  You weren't part of the community because if you were you'd accept people open handily, you are the one who is not welcomed.

    Also this server is nothing like the old days and never will be. Dream on... dream on...

    So many salty people trying to ruin others' chance at fun. Pretty toxic. We know it's not vanilla or what we played in beta and just beyond. I just enjoy the world and stopped playing after Moria so for me, it's fun!

    The launch trailer (https://youtu.be/cGyZJ0pHoZ0 ) is really good though, even if sends a bit confusing message with the "more than a new server" and the old intro music at one hand, while showing the revamped Bree, revamped North Downs, updated character animations on the other :smiley:

    So while they really are showing (subtly) that there's nothing nostalgic there, the main message is still the New start - coming home.

    Beta player here pal and I'm 100% correct those who will enjoy this server dont want people where they are complaining about what it is.  It's why there is a sub to get in.  So you can take your middle finger and sit on it.

    The response has been huge, which has necessitated some queuing. People in a queue will be let in without having to log out then back in repeatedly. We are also working with our operations team to make sure as many people as possible can both be in the log-in queue and in-game.

    from everything ive read and watched its basically live with a lvl cap of 50...

      Its a really really far reach for Vanilla LoTRO
    According to something I read on MassivelyOP they lowered the experience gain rate by 40% in order to more prolong the agon...er.. fun I mean.

    @itstimetodeal  

    I'm a nasty person for not wanting a Cash Shop scam !!!!

    I'm a really bad because The game turned into 5 year old easy. 


    So go ahead and get sucked into their marketing trick to pull in money fast... It's all temporary :)  

    If they had any credibility they would make a Vanilla, but that's out because its "all about the cash shop to them".
