The team has already said that they don't want any affiliation with Anonymous.
The MERP Team is trying to show how what they are doing is legal and legitimate, and Anonymous' reputation doesn't support that effort.

The problem with that is then you are infringing on the Tolkien Estate, and Christopher Tolkien absolutely hates LOTR films, games and fandom, because he feels that it degrades Tolkien's original work (which is understandable when you see Guardians of Middle Earth).
It's probably safer than LOTR because the Tolkien estate has a huge disconnect with Tolkien fandom, but the Silmarilian it a lot harder to make into a game compared to LOTR or The Hobbit.

How do you know they already aren't?
They probably have stopped though, because they are taking this situation as appropriately serious.

I got the impression that MERP would have its own video or share one with SkyWind.

The problem is they have just as much right to sue the patch as they do now for the current mod. The mod is already a fan-made add-on, and they're having a crack at MERP team.

It would really not make me feel any better if WB made a LOTR RPG. They would make a game to be commercially successful and a spin off of the mindless action movies (nothing against PJ, nothing else would be commercially viable), and not something to satisfy the hardcore Tolkien geeks like many of us.
I want a game without elves at the Hornburg. I want a game that calls it the Hornburg. I want a game made by Tolkien nerds, not PJ nerds.

I'm pretty sure that's the first thing they did. I believe they attempted to make huge alterations (like removing the ring bearer story mode) to make WB happy, but WB didn't want to talk.

Even if WB's orc armies can destroy our forces; I'm still holding out for some eucatastrophic Eagles to swoop in.

Well LEGO LOTR will probably be the best 'Official' LOTR game.

I'd hate to see this game have a team of people who give a crap about money.
The thing that is so great about the mod is that there is no decisions being made to make it marketable or popular to a wide audience; it's being made by massive LOTR nerds for us massive LOTR nerds.

Your right, and if it turns out that MERP will prevent people from buying LOTR games, then WB have a completely legitimate case against MERP. They don't though, as I *was* planning on buying LEGO LOTR and possibly subscribing to LOTRO; but not any more. They are achieving the exact opposite of what they planned to achieve.

You guys seen the article on Escapistmagazine.com
It makes a good point, and it seems to have a general 'WB's gunna win' tone to it... but publicity!

That would be a massive shame though; as Tolkien was first and foremost, a philologist and linguist.

I agree (though the point on magic is controversial).
That doesn't mean that they didn't reduce the Heroism of half the characters to comparatively nothing; especially Faramir. He's so darn Epic in the Books, but he's just Boromir's little aspiring brother in the movies.

While you don't replicate Tolkien's vocabulary well, nor do you add anything to any conversation; you seem to encapsulate Christopher Tolkien's views on the Fandom brought about by the films.

LOL, you made this account just to say this didn't you.
But I sternly disagree with smokin0moron, because PJ ruined so many characters (Aragorn, Gimli, Faramir, Sauron +more)

I was thinking about it, and WB really has nothing to lose from this. They have no competing game (LEGO is the closest), and nobody is going to not buy WB's games because of MERP (except now... cause I'm not paying those idiots) because LOTR fans buy LOTR stuff.
Futher more; MERP cold easily act as free advertising for WB: Who in their right mind wouldn't DL a free total conversion!? A whole free game! I'm sure there are people who have Skyrim that don't have any LOTR games. Some people may see it and think "WOW! LOTR is actually pretty cool. Maybe I should go watch the Hobbit Movie!"
