Happy 15th Anniversary, #lotro!

on

I haven’t played for the full 15 years, I started playing about 2.5 years later. Even so, it’s a long time to be playing a game! I haven’t played solidly in all that time but at least 6 months out of the year I’m in lotro.

I thought I’d post a picture and a link to a blog post for each year I’ve been playing šŸ™‚ The links for 2010 to 2013 are from my old blog, 2013 onwards are here.

2010

My first ever Lotro post, a post on falling off things (nothing has changed!), how I joined Laurelin and badly rp-ing, and a comparison of screenshots from 2010 to 2022 (huge change!)

2010 to 2022

2011

An epic journey through Fornost, before it was split into 4 instances. I also fell off a bridge at the worst possible place taking screenshots . Team Orange was in full swing (that was myself, Dimzad and our friend Nox) and I reached Mirkwood. I couldn’t choose just one image so, here’s a few.

Plus a comparison of Bree

Bree 2011 to 2022

2012

I found my first ever screenshot in lotro :), more Team Orange, and Team ? fighting warbands

2013

This is the year I changed from hunter main to lore-master main. Links from posts are now this blog. Some screenshots from the end of beta event,

2014

ESO was released this year, so lotro took quite a backseat. However, I did find one of my screenshots in Chance Thomas’ video! I also changed my style of blogging, and it’s mostly screenshots or some kind of guide from now on.

2015

I did a series of screenshots of Moria,

2016

I did the first half of the lotro 30 day challenge

2017

I didn’t write about lotro at all šŸ˜¦ I did play though, as seen by the screenshot below (Minas Morgul?)

2018

Finally finished the second half of the lotro 30 day challenge! Plus bonus of dps vs tank’s view of a fight, I also wrote up an elven levelling path for lotro.

2019

Was a v bad year for me personally, I did play but no blog posts or screenshots.

2020

Teddy bear hunter

2021

I thought I might roll a character and check out Treebeard, and finally highlights of Treebeard so far.

2022

a hunter outfit

Final Thoughts

Looking back, I wish I’d written more diary style entries, it’s actually quite interesting to read what I was up to. I found though, as years went on, I wrote less on the blog overall and certainly wrote fewer posts on lotro as other games ebbed and flowed.

I would like to say thank you and congratulations to all staff, past and present, involved in publishing this game. It’s kept my interest for nearly 13 years now, I hope there are many more years to play. Also thank you to my fellow kinnies for being awesome and the community both in and out of game as a whole for also being awesome too!
