Wait, are we complaining about the new grind (Mounted combat stuff) or celebrating the new grind (Level cap increase)? I'm confused, because the former sounds a heck of a lot more interesting than the latter.

@Airk New system, new grind, thats how Turbine rolls...

not looking forward to:

*New Grind with Mounted Combat
*New 10 levels to Grind which means the following:
-new LI's to grind
-new gear to grind for
-new skirmish points to grind for

The new area before the expansion seems cool. Also the Boromir death will also be cool, not sure that equals to me playing again, but we will see..

Also I have to say I'm concerned with a new expansion coming so fast. RoI was (and still is) full of bugs... How will all of this be ready for 2012 without being released full-of-fail?

@SwarlesBarkley We're looking at September 2012 release at the EARLIEST. That's a long time from now. Hopefully RoR will be less buggy than RoI. The only real problem I had with RoI was how buggy Draigoch was. It was pretty stable otherwise.

I just got back into LotRO and have been enjoying it again. It truly is a refreshing MMO. Yes, it has its problems, yes it has its grinds, yes it has a store. Yes, its not perfect. But there are a LOT of things it just does right. I started from scratch so I don't know if I'll make it to cap in time to do this, but I'll try.

Sidenote: Fall 2012, hmm.... isn't that when the biggest chance of seeing Guild Wars 2 launch will be? I'd expect to see many MMOs make a big push around then to compete, as many will be leaving for GW2. I'll be playing both. :)

@Ocho

i don't know where you people are getting that "many will be leaving for gw2". most people will try it, and stop playing after a couple weeks like most people did with guild wars 1. of course arenanet will say that since they sold a couple million boxes that they have 50 million people playing the game anyways.

I thought that they would be going into Mirkwood because of the new Hobbit movies. The Anduin stuff sounds fascinating tho-it could go north all the way to Angmar and Mt.Gundabad which is where it's Mouth is.

@Liltawen I expect a separate game, based on the LOTRO template.

@Liltawen I expect The Hobbit Online will be a separate game using the LOTRO template.

The already developed LOTRO landscape populated with different mobs up to just beyond Goblin Town and then new content all the way to The lonely Mountain.

there is hardly enough content to level up to 75 in RoI, and they are releasing another expansion (with i'm guessing a level cap increase) this year?

@jslim419
Roll a new toon from scratch, get to 75, and then come back and say there is not enough content to level up.

If you're level capped, yeah obviously there's a slight inconvenience but the bigger picture says otherwise.
