when i played i didn't need Origin at all, unless they changed something, still shouldn'tDaxStrife said:How much to play it without using EA's Origin system?
...Yes, that's still a deal-breaker for me.
Unless you have oodles of time...god, the amount of grinding to earn anything substantial in LotRO feels absolutely absurd.StriderShinryu said:I'm sure this will prompt many to try the game that haven't before. I must say, though, that it definitely seems at least at first glance that these restrictions are much harsher than in other F2P/Optional Sub games I've heard about/played. LOTRO, for example, is F2P with an optional sub too, but you can earn credits for the cash store in game easily enough. With some effort and running a couple of characters at a time, you can pay for pretty much everything this way without even opening your wallet once. The optional sub for LOTRO just makes things easier and quicker but it isn't the only way to get a quality game experience which sounds like it may be the case here.
It really isn't. I spent 2 days downloading and installing it, played it for 3 days as a Republic Trooper, got to level 11, and never went back.Evil Smurf said:is it anything like KOTOR 1?

That's very true, and to put a point on that, your post just reminded me that I own that game, it's been so long since I even cared about STO that I forgot I owned it.nikki191 said:
