10 things about MMORPG

Well, I'm huge fan of this genre, that's why I created this, small post about Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games.

1. Player’s task is to evolve his character (avatar) and travel all virtual fantasy world. Of course player don’t have to do it, because there are no strict story line.

2. Although MMORPGs, have only existed since the early 1990s, all these games can trace a lineage back to the earliest multi-user games which started appearing in the late 1970s. So around 40 years ago!

3. Top popular free-to-play MMORPG, is Maple Story, created by Nexon. Only in Asia, it has around 33 millions of players, to huge number over 50 millions worldwide!

4. You should know that game addictions are currently the fastest growing class of addictions, with MMORPG addictions being the most common! So watch out for you health during you game sessions.

5. There are 3 archetypes of classes in MMORPG. Tank, DPS (Damage-per-Second), Healer, each class has weak and strong points.

6. The first console-based MMORPG was Final Fantasy XI for the Sony PlayStation 2. Game is still available and has around 500,000 subscribers, mostly in Japan, where is nr 1 MMORPG.

7. Many MMORPGs feature living economies. All virtual items and currency have to be gained through play and have definite value for players. Sometimes items are worth around few thousand dollars!

8. Since the interactions between MMORPG gamers are real, psychologists and sociologists are able to use MMORPGs as tools for academic research. Prof. Bonnie Nardi of the University of California Irvine is working on science project about this issue: “Why American players go to greater lengths to mod the popular MMO than do Chinese World of Warcraft players”.

9. Idea of MMORPG, is to play with other gamers online, so remember to play with others! You are not alone!

10. Most popular pay-for-play game is World of Warcraft, developed by Blizzard Entertainment. It has over 11 millions of player worldwide! Even so these games are far more less popular then Free MMORPGs.

Lotro: Warden Class

Hello guys, today i want to add few words about Warden Class. Warden is master of spear and javelin. In combat he wears medium armor, making them neither a tank nor a dps class specifically. Class is designed to represent the equivalent of a local town sheriff, Wardens are protectors that specialize in special combination attacks using their Gambit User Interface. According to wikipedia, the “idea is that a Warden will execute their abilities in certain sequences that eventually culminate in a special attack only available after completing the prescribed set of moves. In practice, the Warden's Gambit UI is an array of three to five (depending on character level) squares that slot the abilities as you use them, once all of the squares have been filled, a new skill will flash at the end of the bar as it becomes available.”If you are interested you can visit website.

Well this new class is looking quite…

Lotro MMO expansion award

Welcome friends on my Lotro Blog! According to tentonhammer.com, Lotro Siege of Mirkwood expansion, has won best MMO expansion award!Siege of Mirkwood offers players the usual gambit of content one can expect of an expansion. It includes new quests and new zones and dungeons, a level cap increase, and new raids.

Tentonhammer crew is really amazed by the Skirmish system which is the most fun ideas we've seen in the industry this year. You should know that in Skirmish, we can create and lead our own soldier in randomized instances. The soldier can be trained and is receiving experience points. Joining a skirmish is very easy and provides quick and fantastic entertainment. As an added incentive, purchasing Siege of Mirkwood also includes all previous expansions and content updates.

What can I say more? Lotro is one of the best MMORPG ever created and is one of the best game I ever seen. Turbine has really big heart to his products and knows how to promote game in very tough competition…

LOTRO SKIRMISH PATCH 1

Welcome today about quite interesting skirmish changes, checkthem out.

1) Item wear on defeat has been reduced while inside Skirmishes.

While individual results may vary, we feel overall Skirmishes are providing a reasonable amount of rewards. For patch one, they wanted to take the step of reducing the amount of lotro gold lost when killed in a Skirmish. They believe this fix will not change the end amount of gold we can achieve. It’s not bad idea, because after introducing Skirmishes, you really need a lot of gold. I’m waiting for other changes in the future anyway!

2) The monster kill XP buff inside Skirmishes now has a buff icon associated with it.

The Skirmish Monster Kill XP buff will remain in effect until the release of Volume 3 Book 1.
If you will monster in Skirmish you will receive more 25% XP then landscape. According to Turbine, this 25 % bonus was not needed and has helped make Skirmishes a bit too efficient vs. other game play styles (ehhhh whatever…). That’s why they c…
