Lord Of The Rings Online – First Impressions – How Is This Old MMORPG Looking In 2018?

In this MMORPG first impressions video we check out Lord Of The Rings Online. This First Impressions is going to be a little different as LOTRO is a very old game now and I’m exploring this MMO mostly due to curiosity rather than expecting it to be competing with current MMORPGs. So you may notice that I’m a little less critical and forgive things that I wouldn’t in a more recent game. LOTRO was just an itch that I had to scratch, and hopefully this video will help you to do the same!

    No, we don't want to see you in Middle-earth. Go play Fortnite or something…

    I'm a die-hard LotR fan, so I've looked for some info about this game. It wasn't too spectacular or anything, but I think it's worth playing. I'm done with playing maplestory 2, the RNG is killing me. Besides, this seems way more open-world than maplestory 2. can't wait to play this, thanks for the gameplay. Have my like, I'll check out your channel later to see if I'd want to subscribe to you. You seem like a good guy!

    I would have gone back as a Founder, but when I found out they deleted both me and my wife's houses because we didn't log in at a certain point…meh. We put a lot of effort back in the day on those houses…thanks guys.

    it was a fun game at the time but the pay wall stuff made everything very tediously locked behind micro transactions
    once u got to rivendale u were basically stuck from advancing unless u pay or saved enough of the currency, i forget what it was
    the other major problem was the combat was very clunky which made it difficult to play with groups and dungeons overly difficult

    I'd like to play this game cause im a big fan of lotr but the thing that makes me say nah its that the game is an MMO ( I dont really like MMO's and i have never played any MMO game) the graphics are old school, combat is weird and there are a few weird things that need to be fixed…. If there would be a lotr game that would keep me on the edge of my seat it would be an open world roleplay game …. like shadow of mordor-war but that was a fan made game but it was cool… what we really need is an open world, roleplay, singleplayer or multiplayer (i have no problem with multiplayer), realistic graphics and most importantly to have an awesome story…

    Wood elves are from Skyrim tho. This game has high elves and ordinary elves.

    I was lucky enough to do a 2 week free trial during beta. It was pretty empty then too. But when I returned as a paying player 6 months later it was jamming.

    I played like crazy for about 3 years.

    At the time I liked this better than WoW because there seemed to be less of a gap between new players and long timers. I only quit playing because my gaming rig died and a lesser com would lag to death.

    Crips and clean as WoW. That credibility just echo'd as your credibility evaporated.
