I would like to share my thoughts about actual pvmp balance in the Ettenmoors.
Many words have been said what is wrong, by people lot more experinced in this topic than me ( „The reasons for my retirement” by Gromlog, many posts by Harmonizer – both from my server), so I will focus on something different.
To make long story short – I stop playing (and, what is more important – stop paying, and buying anything in the lotro store. I think Turbine have earned from me about 100$ so far). At least stop playing to the nearest update (not patch), if there will be some serious changes in pvmp I will come back (with money), if not – well.
What is more, I strongly encurage every creep, and seriously orientated freep pvmp player, to do the same. Why freep also you can ask ? Well in my oppinion so big unbalnce is, in long term, destroying freeps pvmp fun also, becouse with who You will be fighting ? With a few low ranked creeps, trying new options in lotro ? How long it will be fun ? Ettens are going to be very silent indeed.
Now the most important part :
Sending a letter with official complaintment to Warner Bros and Turbine Inc.
Additionaly PM to Developers (Kelsen Orion) by this forum.
Letter can be written as below :
„To Turbine Inc. ( being part of Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc) CEO/President
I would like to submit official complaint about Lord of The Rings Online, game mantained by Turbine Inc. Part of the game regarding player versus player activity is almost unplayable. Balance between two fractions available in this game is, in practice, not existing. As a result many players interested in player versus player activity (including myself), are leaving LOTRO, and ceasing subscriptions.
I have no idea if the developers resposible for this part of the game are unable to maintain it correctly because of Turbine politics (neglecting this aspect of the game), or because their own incompetence. Many complaints (from several players) adressed on the official LOTRO forum, or in the game, were ignored for a long time, also including plain bugs – not only balance issues.
I am looking forward to some serious actions, and/or response in this matter.
Your sincerly /Your real name, phone and country/.”
Do I think that this latter will make miracle ?
No, but I have to do something before leaving this game, and have at least slight hope that it will work, if not – well I have tryied my best (Guild Wars II awaits). I am leaving (for now), and I am encuraging everyone to do the same (and signing this topic).
With regards – Papamidnight (wl) and Wulver (warg) from Laurelin.
