Some classes are still ok solo; and frankly that's how I like LOTRO now. The days of group content die with Moria.
I've ignored LOTRO, as I have PoE to keep me company, and had hopes for ESO (now dashed, altho I do like the world renown you mentioned). Me being Me, I would play a ranged class. Do those do relatively well in LOTRO, and are they completely overwhelmed with "L3G0L@S!!" characters?

Hunter is LOTRO's ranged class and it was in fact one of the best. It's still one of the best. The great thing about LOTRO - despite whatever else you may like or dislike - was that it has a remnant of old school MMORPG, where you can head out in one direction and get side tracked for a good hour or two and still come away having some measure of progression and fun. There's still those wonderful adventures to be had, on your own or with a small group meandering across the unknown landscape, finding things to do together. I loved the Hunter because it was really self sufficient and I could travel/explore immensely. Since LOTRO has an extremely large landmass and great attention to detail, you want to see everything, and there's a lot to see.

The changes from the recent expansion were big, and mostly negative as far as the majority of players were concerned. Though I feel the disruption only happens at the end game. Up until that point there is a whole world to be had.

I am pretty hard on MMOs, however after seeing what Turbine accomplished in the past six years, it's probably the most in-depth and detailed/layered game of it's type to date. They managed to expand upon the LOTR universe in ways people would not have imagined, and they did a great job of making you feel a part of it. I would rate it in the top 5 of all time.

As for the 'l3gol@s' some..but not as much as you would think. I find those people more in OTHER games, than LOTRO itself.

Thanks. One last post, and will head back to ESO: signed up, got the $10 Sam pack for the extra bag space (I know I'm a packrat, therefore will plan ahead), and see how it goes. I played DDO for a ferw months, so I know their "premiere" package crap.... not sure how pleased I am with that, but I'll pay $10 to give it a whirl.

Now back to your regularly scheduled ESO Fanbois and Bashing :)

I agree with newconroer, go ahead and try it out! Someone new to the game will find it very enjoyable. My complaints come from how the game was 3 years ago and what it is now. Every year Turbine does something that alienates their long-term customers from the game and this year it's my turn, lol. To be fair, I'm just stopping my subscription. When new content arrives I'll pop in for a week or so to play it. Gotta see Gondor!

Oh fuck, it's on consoles as well? I won't bother then, useless UI and shit dumb controls are guaranteed :(
Fucking hell, WHY!?
MMORPG on consoles, what the actual megafuck!?
The most recent Elder Scrolls games have been notorious for being released for consoles at the same time as PC, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim sold more units on consoles than on PC, I doubt Bethesda would let go of such a big market by making this game PC exclusive, modders have always found ways to work around the UI, I hope this release will be the same.

FFXI, one of the most successful MMORPGs of all time was released for PC and PS2, it actually worked well on that console but you had to purchase the HDD add on to play.

You would be surprised about what consoles can do, specially now that they're nothing more than what equals to an average PC in terms of hardware and architecture :)

As for the UI you can always count on the awesome TES modding community to fix any issues for the PC release :)

I have to say that game has impressive world and good looking character models but the animations (especially the movement) are not up to that quality standard IMO

Not in agreement on the models. There's no particular art or style to them and they look outdated and cheap with bad proportions.

Animations are fairly simple but what exacerbates the issue, is the speed of movement. A)There's little physics, so nothing has momentum, acceleration or weight. B) Overall movement speed is like three times normal TES.

So, new invites/re-invites are out, looks to be a Beta weekend, starting at Noon Friday, EST-US, until Sunday at Midnight. For at least some of us, it comes with a perk: bring a friend. So, anyone interested in playing that hasn't had a shot yet, PM me, and I would assume that several of the others in here will put up their beta invite as well, so keep an eye out.

This weekend, we’re inviting millions to test The Elder Scrolls Online!

Today, we’re sending out more beta invites for an ESO scale test. If you receive an invite, there will be an extra beta code included that you can give to a friend to join you in Tamriel!




For this beta, you are no longer required to follow a Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA). We invite you to post your best screenshots, videos, and impressions this weekend, and livestream your adventures for everyone to see. Be sure to use #esobeta to share your favorite moments with the world! Participants this weekend will also unlock an exclusive monkey vanity pet for PC/Mac that you can have at launch.

Thanks for your continued enthusiasm and support as we march toward launch. We look forward to seeing you in Tamriel this weekend!

The monkey pic is an exclusive vanity pet gained if you play the game once it goes live for participating this weekend.

Sorry, just to be clear, and so there's no hard feelings, if your "join date" has a "2014" in it, please don't ask. Any requests from members newer than Oct or so of 2013 will need to be very active in that time.

Nice ... and there is also newly patched Diablo 3 to play until ESO beta continues.

EDIT:

Went back to ESO, continued with my dark elf and got another quest to find guars and send them home, after half an hour again got another quest basically the same with different method of sending guars home. Amazing creativity right there, I mean if you are focused mainly in all the different ways you can prod the poor animal. I expect by level 12, I'll be levitating missing guars home in yet another creative 'lost guars' quest.

Played a lot on Friday and Saturday, nearly entirely in Cyrodiil as it was another stress test. The lag is 100x improved from the last beta weekend.

The word on the street is there will be one last beta weekend coming up shortly with an updated client. This will be a big one as it'll better represent the game at launch.

I have been seeing different live streams from elder scrolls online today on twitch, it seems that private test server is working although beta weekend has ended.
I enabled the option in the launcher and it showed the PTS but also wanted to do whole new install with 20 GB download so I canceled.
Probably special keys and all ... did anyone else test this?

I passed this weekend. Had a birthday party with my nieces, time with my daughter, and the game just wasn't that much for me. Maybe the last beta weekend, I'll try again, but right now, I'm expecting to just pass it by completely. Anyone seriously change their impression of the game this weekend?

Finally got my hands on ESO. Initially it looked very promising, but ended up being really disappointing...
I know, you guys warned me, but my curiosity took over and I've decided to give it a try anyway.

So, here's my five cents to sharing impressions.
Not counting exceptional graphics ESO is a complete failure in my opinion:
  • Gameplay sucks
  • Role playing system is a bare resemblance of TES5, way oversimplified
  • Crafting system reminds me too much of SquarEnix MMOs. Mainstream is not what i expected from Bethesda Softworks
  • Storyline is so dull, it feels like playing DnD with retarded fifth-grader
End result: I barely had enough patience to play for couple of hours. Deleted ESO immediately.

Tabula Rasa was good from the start. Squarenix made a big mistake with changing their game distribution model, which brought the project down.

This is off topic but I'm wondering why the system requirements say 60 GB space on the HD. All the other requirements are pretty low. Any of you beta testers got any idea why the final game might take 60 GB? Also, is the cash shop open in the beta? I don't know what to think about $60 for game, $15 monthly sub and a cash shop.

I don't mind cash shops when its for fluff items. But anything other than fluff on top of a monthly fee and a game that costs $59.99 plus tx is a big "hell no" in my book.


I'm waiting for Everquest Next.

Client version is now eso.live.1

I'll decide for sure after this weekend. It has a couple things going for it, which are it's better than what I'm playing now and I would get in at the start. The AvA is great, though in the future I hope smaller scale PvP systems are implemented in addition like arenas or a smaller map devoted to PvP, i.e. A map designed to hold ~100 per alliance and no large objectives (keeps).

If it doesn't completely win me over I'll go back to trying out Neverwinter and Rift. Like WhiteNoise, I'm also waiting to see more about Everquest Next and could use something to hold me over.

At the moment my install is 29.9GB. But data unique to areas not released in the beta may not be installed. Only the first couple zones per alliance and all of Cyrodiil has been open in beta so far.

I have seen Ebonheart pact starting zone, first zone in Morrowind and Elswyr starting zone so far with dunmer nightblade and khajiit templar ... I have one orc knight character but I only got him out to the starting area. I have a feeling I won't have enough time to test the imperials and that orc and to push at least one of my chars over level 10 to try pvp in Cyrodiil.
