So U18 finally arrived: ‘The Battle for Pelennor Fields’… is it me or does the promotional artwork keep getting poorer and poorer 😦

Anyway, read more about the update here: https://www.lotro.com/en/u18

and here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?608442-Update-18-Release-Notes

I will not be shelling out the 2000TP for the update anytime soon, I don’t have it for starters, finding time to log on at the weekends to play LOTRO is hard enough, my sons sense me moving silently through the house aiming for the PC and they rise from slumber to confiscate the PC and even the ipad relegating their gaming daddy to CoC and CR on his tiny android phone!

And why is this day strange for an update? Because it was delayed a day from the eleventh?


Because today the Dr. Strange trailer will be released and oddly enough my LOTRO fandom has been superseded by my desire to see a movie trailer!

    just you I guess, it shows the rohirrim riding in game, nothing bad 🙂

      The picture itself is illustrative and looks impressive if captured from in game… but the composition is primitive and that lettering… now compare it to the Rohan promotional work and you can surely see the difference.

      I think at a time when marketing is king and people are a combination of shallow and fickle – publicity imagery is quite important. TURBINE have been failing in this area for quite some time, I really think LOTRO should be doing much better than it is…

    Not sure if your opinion on the artwork is just you setting the bar too high or the fact that them ol’ eye’s ain’t gettin any younger 😈

    Yeah, what is that 2000 TP all about?

    However since I still haven’t done the last two packs before this one, my gnashing of teeth is limited for now.

    Haven’t indulged in anything Lotro for some time but I must say, that promo poster is lousy. Do a comparison with any of the past expansions. Must be the work of an underpaid intern =P.

    But whoa! 2000TP for the quest pack? That’s pretty steep!
