What is one supposed to do when they get frustrated with their current game of choice? Am I really supposed to stop subscribing and come back with a fresh perspective in a few weeks or months? I'd love to, but honestly, there isn't much for me to play aside from the betas I'm in right now.
And maybe that's okay, because said betas are a blast. I may end up ruining that launch day awe and wonder, but I'm having so much fun right now, that I don't really care.
I'm typing all this because it's happened. I've become angered at LotRO in just under a year of playing. Never in beta did I get far enough to see a lack of soloable content, but I am seeing it in retail. At nearly 37, quests are starting to run dry, and I'm consistently doing things above my level just so I have something to do on my own.
I suppose this may not be a problem if my Kinship were a more active bunch, but we're all over the place in terms of when we play and for how long, so organizing anything is a chore.
It's not the gameplay that bothers me, that I still enjoy. It's the feeling that very soon I'll have to do nothing but kill mobs without a quest to make it small-goal oriented. And while killing in a duo or a group is a blast, solo it is not.
So someone, offer me an opinion. What would you do? Take a break or forge onward to the level 40 wall, and hope the Book 10 patch does for 40+ what Evendim sort of did for 33+?
Because right now, I'm thinking I'll just play the hell out of these betas. They're more fun than Middle-earth right now. Of that I'm certain.
