F2P II: Dungeons and Dragons Online

Another game that went F2P a few months ago is Dungeons and Dragons Online.

DDO - I came in on that?

With the move to F2P, DDO raised its profits a 500%. As other games that have gone or are going the same route, DDO makes use of an Online Shop. You can play for free all the way, of purchase the ingame currency via using real $$ or through your performance in the game: Some quests will give you cash to spend in the Online Shop.

Let me repeat: DDO is completely playable without paying, but you'll have to get the items through your own effort.

DDO's ratings are pretty good. Some people complain that its graphics are not jaw dropping, but for a former Eternal Lands player even Farmville's graphics rock.

DDO - Nuvalo has arrived

Have a look at the video to get an idea of:
  • • Character creation
  • • Trainer
  • • Shopping
  • • Random gameplay

F2P I: The Lord of the Rings online

We are starting this series dedicated to Free to Play MMORPGs with the last addition to the F2P Clan: The Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO).

Lord of the Rings Online™
Random loading screen of LOTRO. Promising...

LOTRO Summer Festival 2010

It is clear by now that F2P is the way of the future, with other amazing MMORPGs going the same route (stay tuned if you want to know about them).

Lord of the Rings Online™Lord of the Rings Online™

With LOTRO, you step on Tolkien's Middle Earth and find yourself completely involved in the storyline, which mixes elements from the books with new ones by the developer, Turbine (within a reasonable limit: You won't find elements not matching the storyline, like aliens).

.Lord of the Rings Online™.
Starting this September, LOTRO offers up to the Mines of Moria expansion for free. There's still the subscription option and the Online Shop. However, you won't be paying for power levelling like in other games, but to achieve things faster.

Have a look at the ratings (from 8 points over 10 and even better), then at the screenies in this post, and tell me your mouth isn't watering to try this awesome game, if you have not tried it yet.

LOTRO is an incredibly polished MMORPG. The graphics are simply beyond description, tremendously engaging. Have a look at a LOTRO sunset and you won't feel like going back to your boring real life window views anymore.

Levelling up takes time, but you'll eventually get where the PROS are. Class dynamics are also interestingly thought out and leaves the player with a lot of freedom to design his path in the game. The tasks you can do, if you wish, are varied and very well developed technically; you can swim, fish, craft or fight, to name a few. The quests are many and very well written, but you can go without them if you like. Lore is supreme.

What about the community? And character creation options? If you're wondering about these issues, take a look at this vid and find out yourself:

If you're a The Lord of the Rings fan, you should give LOTRO a try. It won't cost you a single cent!

Free to Play is the way to go

Welcome to New York Shitty.

Are you stuck in a shitty game that got you in because you liked that it was free? Were you deceived by the fact that randomness made the cool stuff almost unlikely unless you visited the online shop? Are you still playing Eternal Lands or have you already left for Facebook games?

Despair not, gamer. In following posts you'll know about other alternatives that prove that FREE TO PLAY (F2P) is the way to go!

Honorable EL player hands

This is what happens to the hands of those players who click their levels up themselves without macroing.

Using Axife Mouse Recorder to do stuff for you in EL

Dear friends,

A couple of starter guides on macroing have already been posted in this webpage.

The easiest way to macro repetitive tasks, like harvesting, mixing FE's, thread or the like, is of course using a MOUSE RECORDER. Axife is the best one I've tried so far.

Go download it here, it's a demo but it's more than you need:

Axife's interface is really simple in the most basic version, but it is more than we need for our purposes.

  1. You just click on "Record", stop the command when you're done, and play when you want the action to start repeating itself.
  2. 2 is for how many times you want the action to repeat.
  3. 3 shows the time sequence of the action.
Regarding (1), I recommend that you just do this:
Go view >options >Hot keys and assign hot keys to the actions.

As easy as it can get.

Enjoy your self done essences!

An Eternal Lands review.

  • Eternal Lands is a game in which half the players are bots (see images above and below)
Why? Because bots have to be declared... and paid for.

Of the remaining 50%:

  • 20% are players that have been playing forever, and have extremely high levels.
  • 15% are mid-level players who still haven't realised that, no matter how many rabbits more they kill, they'll never get to shadow the previously mentioned 20%.
  • The last 15% are n00bs wh0 writ3 like dizzzzz and will stop playing as soon as they realise what they're into.
49% of the players are often mistreated by mods, devs, or all of them.

If you want to get far in EL, improve your ass licking abilities:

-Oh, Entropy, I just love the new feature!! Really throwing UFOs at bears is such an awesome thing to do and so fantasy-medieval-like.
-Oh Roja, that new ship you designed is just so cool, keep them coming! I wonder how come ships have extended sails while they're in harbor, and how come my char's hands touch his knees, but nevermind! You're such an artist! Down with Picasso!
-Oh, Aislinn, it was really my wife whom I exchanged items with, however I accept that you insult me as long as you unban me, pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease! I'm 35 years old but I've been such a bad boy, I promise I'll behave.

Most of the players will leave EL after a time and go for more exciting games, like Farmville or Pet Society.
