    It is about remembering what the game meant to us and our guilds as much as "worshiping", and how good it is to see players still enjoying playing today. And yes, there are MMORPG's as good, with different strengths but you can count them on one hand.

    You literally saying what he said but in your own words....

    any ways, I think the crowd that is left is not BSing themselves or anyone else, they know they are in a older and dated game that has had a finnicky monetization plan and even more up and down content releases that don't justify some of the prices. But there seems to have a niche crowd that keeps it alive. Just look at forums, they won't lead you astray, they will tell you "This sucks, this is good, this aspect sucks, youll need X dollars here, or do this for X time there, but seriously just pay X here"... etc... no ones claiming this is best, there might be one basement dweller that is drooling and will defend this title with his own replica of some axe or sword hanging above his PC....but..... minority.

    Shame to tell - I feel so indifferent. New raid - never go raiding, my PC too slow, RNG almost always takes everything from me, I am weakiest in group; new crafting tier -->new grind, no excitement; new esssences --> forgot to bother about them, new region means new essences; new factions --> more grind for 5 Lotro points, not excited; new territory - well, the only thing to wait for. Mordor was great, with great mood, immersion - almost everything was right there (except part where you fight Orcs for the glory of some Goblin). North Mirkwood was half-failure (black tree in black background while it's always dark with black river nearby), while light part was almost good (just NOT these political quests in Dale!). Dwarf Strongholds - total failure. Been here. Blank landscape. No cities. Existing cities remind some beggar settlements, epic (Black book) story was blank, nothing exciting and another part was extremely problematic to navigate, ending with point on fortress that was impossible to find. Beorning lands - so far nobody was excited, except one role-playing Beorning.
    Am I waiting for this region? Almost no. It would mean just heavy lag, nobody to group with (everyone rushes to new content).
    Though there is very small hope that folks who produced Mordor are back and may have made quality region, first after Mordor...

    'Ho there fair traveller, the shadow of Mordor is long and Minas Morgul is near taken by our allies. IF they fail the whole of Middle Earth is doomed. To turn the tide I require you to fetch me 20 bear livers and 40 albatros beaks before it's too late!'

    Yes, some of the quests leave a lot to be desired. That's why I almost always just do my own thing.

    Sounds like you don't like anything about this game.

    The game at this point is just nostalgia and makes me sad for what could've been instead of the over-priced same lame questing that it's become for each new xpac. They boast over 250 new quests but are they new, really? Spend $130 on a "legendary" bundle but reskinned horses/armor with a character leveling boost is hardly legendary and they really should learn to spell because they are actually defining a rip-off. Until they change their business model and try to actually do more things like the Bingo quests and stop trying to make balanced raids/instances and ditch Sev and that useless fake Cord, I won't sink another dime into it.
