‘Windmill II’ by Marie Saalfrank 

‘Can I kick it? To all the people who can Quest like A Tribe does’

A tribe Called Quest – ‘Can I kick it?’

TURBINE LAYOFFS – The more I hear the worse it gets, not wishing to hold my hand over my ears and scream, I decide to create some possible course of actions we should all take…

Wait for the Sci-Fi fix

Big data was encroached inevitably closer to destroying the old non-digital world order, eventually it  tsunamied it into into oblivion, all data became impossible to hide…it became there to be found by anyone.

In this DATA world; where what happened and how it happened will be captured from all angles and kept for analysis and interpretation. Decisions will be made based on powerful data analysis software, the software will cannibalistically be based on data and the data will be all encompassing…

There will come a time when the software evolves and becomes sentient, it will suddenly roam free through our virtuality, tearing up the data systems and rewiring existence.

These programs are known as AMI (Artificial MASSIVE Intelligence)

One of these new friends of humanity will stumble upon LOTRO languishing under the abuse of WB…

After instantly falling in love with the story, gameplay and even interacting with the few remaining hardcore players, who are still friendly and supportive of this new player, not knowing their new LOTRO player friend was not human! After rewriting the code overnight, introducing simple yet updated character models, fixing the plethora of bugs and issues (The AMI is surprised to find most of them already documented in forums and communications to TURBINE already!) it is rereleased to the world for FREE…

The game has been transformed, almost evolved into a new species of MMO, the LOTRO skies code were kept, they always were so nice.

Maybe the above is just sci-fi…but to save LOTRO something needs doing…

Kick em softly into action

We can ask TURBINE: ‘Come on fix it…PLEASE? Pretty please?’

Even the critics agree that LOTRO is a great game, just a bit neglected!

It could be a great game again…and ergo a massive money spinner…

When the Wii came out its primitive graphics shocked the gaming press…it went on to revolutionize home gaming…

WOW came along and, I wont say revolutionize, but it managed to tick enough boxes and tick them so well with such a colourful playful tick that it became THE MMO.

LOTRO with its basic yet still simply stunning graphics, slow story, old school mechanics could never compete but it did have something WOW did not and the original coders succeeded in translating the Middle Earth of the books into digital form giving the game a depth, landscape and history no other MMO can match.

It is the place most fantasy cosmetic fetishists would love to spend the rest of their days in…

Kick em where it hurts!

A lot of blame has been directed at the WB bean counters – money…is the issue!

Lets reduce WB’s revenues, all revenues except of course LOTRO…

MeanBean WB

Kick em the outta here…

Do a Fan based buy-out…works for sporting teams…

I doubt we can use Kickstarter for such an endeavour… but surely if all the LOTRO fans present and past came together I am sure we could get pretty close to put some pressure on WB to turn the game around…

Sci-fi and fantasy, stuff of dreams…

I do dream that LOTRO will just keep on going…
