A Guide for the Student on the Ways and Means of the Warg and the Stalking of Prey

Lame Just Reached A New Low

Today I was looking through the statistics for this blog as I usually do. I was checking to see how many hits I had received, which posts were popular, etc. One of the things that I can see in my statistics report are the search terms people use to find this blog and it was here that I came across what I can only describe at the lamest behaviour I have ever heard of.

I’ve posted before on what constitutes lame behaviour in the Ettenmoors and also on what sort of behaviour people usually say is lame, but which in fact is acceptable. I have even explained why some things that freeps QQ about are acceptable. However, all the lame behaviour I have covered really pales in comparison to today’s find.

One of the search terms used to find this blog was:

lotro how to disconnect to avoid getting killed in the moors

Just read that line over a few times and let it sink in.

Here is someone so concerned about their toon dying that that they are trying to cheat their way out of it. Rather than simply accepting that they aren’t good enough, or that they got caught out, or that luck was against them in a particular situation they want to cheat their way out of a death that they are due.

Maybe they are concerned with their rating? Maybe they don’t like the person who killed them? Maybe they got unlucky during the fight and felt they didn’t deserve to loose? None of that matters. If you loose a fight then you loose a fight. Be man enough to take your defeats. Dust yourself off and fight another day.

I really hope this wasn’t a warg using that search term. No self-respecting warg should resort to ‘technical measures’ to deny the enemy a kill. Sure you can be sneaky and devious, but out and out cheating really is the epitome of lame.

Update: The person behind the search term has posted an update in the comments section. Turns out it was freeps behind it. So apologies and remember folks don’t be lame!

  1. LOL. It was I who was looking for it. There is a simple reason: lately on my server I’ve seen minstrels, guardians, hunters and all sort of classes suddenly dissapearing in front of me (and yes, including men and dwarves), Since I remember a time back at codemasters where creeps said someone had dissconected to avoid getting killed, I was curious about this.

    Wargs who play with me have seen this aswell. And they wondered about this aswell.

    Some time later, I asked on the ooc and learned that apparently there is some Forochel item to dissapear/teleport/orsomethingIdontknow,

    Funny enough, the first link that appears when you look for it is this blog, and since I suddenly lost interest on the subject, I clicked on it to see if there was any new post.

  2. Lol. Well it doesn’t surprise me at all that it would be freeps behind it! That’s really weak sauce on their part.

    I should have known no self-respecting warg would try something so lame! Thanks for the update mate. 🙂

      Can it be their friend is using a rallying horn, quest reward from Forochel?
      (Also buyable in Store)
      Which teleports them to their friend, didn’t know it worked even in combat?

    Nice blog, brother! I cound’t stand to look for the first search entry, where it all began XD
    BTW, Guardians also mnufacture an acorn that they cant give to friends to be rallied by them. You can’t summon a Guardian to you then you are in combat, but can do it while HE IS in combat.
