Anybody going to play the LOTROL stress test over the weekend? Can't Post

On TORn's front page there is a pitch to get more folks to play the on line LOTR game which is currently in Beta Testing mode.

Anybody going to take the bait? I think I might.

Yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

In fact, I am taking the day off from work tomorrow (not just for that reason!) and will be playing as soon as it opens. I've been envying those Beta Testers for months! Although I have never successfully played an On-Line game, since it is LOTR, I am sure I'll be able to figure it out! Mostly sure.....

I just had a look at the site. [In reply to] Can't Post

And since I don't have any plans (or money) this weekend I think i'm going to give it a try!

I think I will try it as well [In reply to] Can't Post

So, if you are on line, look around for me. I will be (hopefully) named "MrCere".

Probably not the stress test... [In reply to] Can't Post

...but I got the key to the Beta program so I may set that up this weekend.
My 12 year old son is better at games than I am, I'll let him test it!

It MAY just give you the beta access too [In reply to] Can't Post

I created an account and signed up for the weekend but it says I have until April for the beta test. I think they are trying to get me addicted . . .

Anyway, looks like it might be a great entrance into the world to see how it plays.

RE [In reply to] Can't Post

I was one of the beta testers. I played the game extensively and I can't recommend it highly enough. It is a great game. They got the gameplay right AND the lore. You all will love it.


Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament... There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves on earth, and more than that: Death: by the divine paradox, that which ends life, and demands the surrender of all, and yet by the taste (or foretaste) of which alone can what you seek in your earthly relationships (love, faithfulness, joy) be maintained, or take on that complexion of reality, of eternal endurance, which every man's heart desires.

--J.R.R. Tolkien, Letter #43, to his son Michael

Give it a try [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been in the EU version since Alpha, even though only Eriador will be in the original release if you are a Tolkien fan you really should give this a try. Codemasters (the EU publishers) are currently considering a dedicated roleplay server for when the game goes live too.
