never played WoW

i just wish MMOs would have different plans. For first 2-3 months i would use normal unlimited plan, but after i get bored with it, instead of loosing the characters i would like there to be some cheaper limited plan. That you could for example play 5-10 days a month.

Well there is a plan where you can pay 150$ (something like that) for LOTRO and never have to pay ever again if you wish

wasn't really interested in it since its so much like WoW(which is dead and done for me) but reviews have been great.....I read that the best part of the game is leveling because its so written and fleshed out. I might just pick it up for something to play until fall when the "AAA" titles start to hit...LotR: SoA can't be worse than the crap that's out .....Lost Planet is junk, DiRT corruppted my saves after MANY hours of play , Halo2 is laughable and CoJ ....will Techland ever learn how to make a game???
Lord of the rings online is fantastic for the first 20 levels then it gets boring as hell. You pay more for repairing your gear and talents than you do for goods bought off the AH. I just becomes boring.

I actually paid for Vanguard (smuck), that's the last time I fall for hype.

And EQ2 a timesink treadmill? That's the core foundation of all MMORPG's. Give me a break!
The problem is EQ2 does not know when to stop with the grinding. They don't mix up the game at all. The game just plain sucks.

I felt the same way. It's like they want it to be tedious. Grindquest 2: Now with twice the grinding!

This brilliant observation comes from your 10 minutes of playing EQ2? Explain to us exactly how EQ2 doesn't "mix-it-up" in comparison to other MMO's. I'm on pins and needles waiting....

Grind? Ridiculous! I turned off my combat experience and I have leveled purely by doing quests, item collections, location discoveries, guild writs, creature cataloging, legend & lore, etc. EQ2 is the best MMO out right now, but its also probably the worst advertised since it had a dismal start and nobody knows about the numerous changes made to the game since.

Actually, the Founders fee for unlimited play for life was $199.00 but that was only if you purchased the game for the pre-release. They also offered an option with a monthly fee of $9.99 per mo.

Now, for unlimited play for life its $299.00 or you can pay the normal monthly fee of $14.99 per mo.

I bought the $199 option but have already slowed down on playing. The static group I was in broke up. Its almost depressing when I log in now.
Still, the game was/is fun and I have no regrets and plan on playing again soon. You just need a break sometimes from this genre.
