I love TOG.
I love the way we can jump on pretty much any time through the week and have a game. I also love the way we do things to make our community stronger and have more fun. On that note... awesome job Jazz.

I had an absolute ball last night playing in the first round of the BFBC2 squad death match. For those who don't play BC2 Squad Death Match is basically 4 x 4 person squads fighting against each other on a map. You need 50 kills to win. It's a really a fun idea. ...

What is it about pirates? Even a game like Lotro is not immune to their dubious charms.

As ever, the item (which was only ever a cosmetic)

I've been playing some more... more assault sniper working on running at the back of the squad and working as a spawn point. I've played a couple of "squad death matches" and my team loved me.

Here's the kit setup.

T88 Sniper - 3 Shot kill - working with team mates means some good assists.
4x scope - At the short and medium distances this is really worthwhile. Sometimes un-scoped up close it just as good. Due to the amount of ammo you get in a magazine...

Hunter Class Hat

Posted 4th June 2010 at 12:28 AM by Keli (All Around My Hat)

I've been playing LOTRO for a year now and it struck me recently that the game seems to have some of the strangest / silliest hats I've ever seen in an MMORPG.

Now, I don't consider this to be a bad thing in itself although it would be nice if LOTRO also had some of the best hats ever seen in an MMORPG; unfortunately it doesn't though this is a personal judgement of course.

But I like silly hats and the customisation options in LOTRO allow a player to experiment until they...
