Friday, April 27 at 6pm Central(7pm Eastern and Server time)
Calling all Lore-Masters to bring your fire, lightning, tar and fuzzy/feathery friends. All specs and any level of character that can enter the Ettenmoors is welcome.
But I guess I should introduce myself. My main toon is a LM named Lebury. So far I reside on the Landroval server.
I put in for a transfer last Friday right after the Lore-Master Night we had over there. It was a blast. 19 LMs and some other friends.
Anyhow...I found out recently from Turbine that I had put in the request prior to them blocking transfers. They said transfers are up again and asked if I was still interested. I've been waiting very patiently for nothing. I was furious. lol But I will have to assume that everything will go smoothly this time.
I've been playing lotro since the beginning basically. I open raids a lot. People seem to like the outcomes of these raids. I'm a vicious player. Raids that I coordinate can lead to freeps holding their foot on the opponent's throat and not letting up. I use every skill/pot/brand/etc etc that I have at my disposal. I scout the other side and all those other nasty things some players hate(Not corpse hopping or general nastiness). But we don't flip keeps when creeps are few. And normally when there isn't enough of the opponent, I play another game or go to PvE land. I'm not the greatest soloer. I play a burg when I want to concern myself more with that aspect. I've caught flak from creeps and even a few freeps. But I march to my own drum and I get a great kick out of seeing people get mad, even though I don't try to do it. I'm very easy to get along with. Like to joke around. Always up for suggestions. I'm more concerned with what EVERYONE wants to do. It comes off as being too kind at times, but hey, its a game. And I love the Lore-Master class! FIRE! FIRE! FIRE! I always loved the caster classes in any game I've played.
Enough about me though. I know E has great coordination, using the chat channels and vent and such. That's the main reason I wanted to come here. I want to be a team player. And if anyone can help me get onboard with everyone else, I would appreciate it greatly.
There is always the chance that my transfer will not go through in time. Or I may even have to work that night.
If so, I will let you guys know as soon as I can. You can have someone be the leader or whatever you'd want to do. But more than likely I'll be there.
I've had many LM nights in the past. If you love your LM and want to have a good time, I can almost guarantee you will.
I understand a lot of you don't know me. So this isn't going to kick off as well and as quick as it did on Landy. All I can say is that every LM night we ever had, we did well against slightly more numbers than us. The last time was awesome. Wiping as we killed the TA Tyrant and many creeps with Ents and Lightning flying everywhere. And we rushed right back in to light the creeps up with sticky gourd all over the place as they tried to immediately take it back. We saved the CG with 30k and wiped them right back. The whole night was a blast though.
A friend of mine took this screenie. This was us killing the LC Tyrant.
I've heard a few responses so far. And I thank you guys. LM night will happen no matter what. Even if its just 5 LMs. We've done that before. But I do encourage others to send me replies if you are interested. Just so I can get an idea of what to expect.
With all due respect, I brushed your previous post off like many other negative things. I've heard hundreds of negative things. And some landians had their negative things to say as well. And I had people(Freeps and Creeps) telling me after, "Hey, that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It was a fun night."
There isn't anything that anyone could say to affect what I do.
How about we just accept it and have fun. Because there will be more LM nights. And we may get 5-8 LMs this night and get our butts kicked. But eventually after a few LM nights, it will blow up. Because there are peeps who like LMs as much as I do. Whether I'm organizing it or someone else, it's going to happen.
It's negative to ask a question? Or are you brushing it off because you don't have an answer?
You paid $25 to join E because the way we play results in better pvp. You then want to play the way you did on your old server. The server that YOU decided was worth $25 to leave. Why?
Honestly. I'm just trying to understand the logic behind it. Not just regarding 1 class raids because that new version of HMFC that transferred in is doing the same thing. I really want an answer to that question because it's something I don't understand.
"The quest for excellence is a mark of maturity; the quest for power is childish"
- I transfered here because there are more players. More players equals more action. Thats just a fact.
- The times that I like to play are normally extremely creep heavy. Basically to the point where it would be me and 2 other guys against a craid. I already knew that here on E the balance could go either way, depending on which side the mass flippers want to play. And I have no problem with that at all. People can do whatever they want. If they want to play to their advantage, all power to them. They pay for their accounts, no one else. But I don't get to play at prime time very much due to spending time with the misses, watching shows on TV, etc etc. And most of the time, prime time is the only time freep forces stand any chance. There are exceptions, I know. But most of the time its like this.
- I knew the freeps here worked together far better than Landy. Many freeps on Landy are too concerned with individual victiories. Many shun raiding all together and think having a group over 7 people is a sin of some sorts. I play the LM to work with others. And so far I've been right. Freeps use the chat channels and call out creeps. The mass amount hang together in the general area when theres no raid. That's a huge difference from Landy where most people will continue to roam around all corners of the map and getted mapped in on and get face stomped repeatedly. As I said, I have other toons and others games I play when I want to play as an individual.
- I still play on Landy. I have many friends. I see no problem with branching out and making more.
I didn't know you were really asking a question. I'm pretty used to seeing sarcastic negative comments. If you were simply interested in my endeavours, I apologize.
So far I've been enjoying myself a lot. It's been a great change. My aoes are coming in to affect a lot more than they did on Landy. I've been dieing more, but the action has been a lot better. And I've already met some great people.
Wow. I've seen trollers. But I think you've taken the cake as far as any I've ever seen. lol
But just for giggles, here's my rebuttal...
You're filled with ignorance. You see some of your buddies bashing me and think its fun. That's ok. I'm having a blast myself.
But since you didn't read the rest of my reasons, you didn't see that I still play on the lower populated server.
Here's my pledge(Mock pledge).... "I pledge to dedicate my entire lotroing experience to 1 server and 1 toon. My actions on this 1 toon will reflect my entire idea of how to pvp."
I'm loving the responses. But we are littering up the Lore-Master Night Thread. It's still happening though. I'm going to have to assume some people are scared of the oncoming storm.
1 thing I left out of my reasons for transfering was the fact that some mass alt-farming had happened over on Landy that I do not like at all. The main alt-farmer wasn't super-black listed in my opinion. Well, I hear he got even more black-listed after I left. But there will still be no justice as long as any non-alt-farmers ever join his groups. Alt farmers don't exist to me. When I get killed by an alt-farming creep, oh well. Didn't really happen. I have no idea who shot that arrow at me. I died, oh well. Doesn't matter, I was killed by a cheater.
I left because of bad playing. And if you disagree with that, then you support alt-farming. Not a very popular thing to do by the way. It lead to the biggest Kin/Tribe leader on Landy to lose face BIG TIME. Ultimately leading to the demise of his kin/tribes.
Anyway...can someone please make me a list of some trollers to look out for? I know it's probably long, but if you have the time and don't mind, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
See you there! Hope you have a good night whatever the outcome.
Note: Freep communication is not at its best. It still isnt bad. But not what it used to be and not as good as E creeps communication. Leaders are more scarce of freepside unfortunately and hopefully some new blood will step up and take the job or the old ones will come back to help even out the weight. Either way I wish you the best in your raid tonight and you will get opposition
You don't have the right class to make stars. Roll a warg, defiler or wl.
And it appears you are attempting to talk smack in some way. I like a litle smack talk.
But you must not have been there for LM night at the beginning and around the end when we were winning.
You must have been there when we were ever so conveniently found outflanked and outnumbered.
There was one time in particular, when we came out of SoP to fight the creeps at their map in. We had a raid vs raid in no npcs. There was no flank. We were fully ready for it. And I'm not sure if we got any kills on that one. Wasn't much focus firing going on in our group. Ah well, that happens sometimes. Good job on that one creeps.
There will be more LM nights. And any attempts to kill LM nights, due to fear of them, by saying that LM night is a feast for creeps has failed.
LM nights aren't like Mini or Hunter nights that could pop up the same day its advertised for. And I'm still a nub on E.
But I do believe I've gotten a much better idea of how creepside works on E. We were playing like mad men. Rushing in to keeps with npcs all over us. I have a feeling things will not be as convenient for creepsdie next time.
But good showing nonetheless.
Keep your eyes peeled on the forums to schedule your next "feast".
I posted this after some smack talk about wanting me to have a LM night tommorow. I just edited this with the P.S. Dunno where the smack talking went. lol
