Why not make project International and move it out of reach from stupid US laws and lawmakers, what are you going to do if WB doesn't give ? you will just throw all the work away ?! i only wanted to play this cause its Middle earth i don't play other skyrim mods no matter how epic(cause i have no time) but for Lotr i would find time... I and many other people have mentioned this before but merp team doesn't even seem to be considering it ? why ? it is the easiest way to avoid trouble. if you dont do it tho some foreigner might steal your idea and make their own lotr conversion and your mod will lose point... you've got to be practical and pragmatic and not so emotional (20000 signatures ohmygood so awesome!! :\ are you kidding ? WB couldn't care less)
Maan I come here every week and its the same old story =[ WB can ignore you til the end of time why would they speak to you ? they achieved what they wanted.. talking to you will just be a headache for them.. you need new ideas and more aggressive politics..
PS FYI no WB Jurisdiction in Russia! + a lot of good modders and Lotr fans there You could use that to your advantage....
So I came back after a month and discovered that THIS IS GOING NOWHERE.. we need another solution because im 99% sure now that WB won't change their mind!
So lets just pretend that we are just big group of friends and share it withing our community..
Do they know who you are ?! how will they find you.. even if they do ok.. you could still make it and let someone across the seven seas release it under Anonymous name... im pretty sure if the game was released in egypt or afganistan WB couldnt do anything about it you could slightly change the name of the mod too they will never find it!
So what exactly are we waiting for ? WB will probably ignore all this stuff. does that mean you will never resume the work? you guys should just keep making it and you will figure out a way to release it later!! WB will forget it sooner or later
sould contact IGN maybe ? Gameinformer ?
Guys you wanna contact the American Civil Liberties Union for some support (ACLU)they are know to be the big critics of C&D in genera.. this might not be a big enough case to get them into it but trying wouldn't harm anybody... the worst they will say is no
and one more advice you guys should clearly write the short history of the mod.. when you started what you were doing etc and how you got C&D letter in detail and put it on a very public page(here) so everyone can see it. this is definitely the first thing you should do... at least that's what my professor says.
So people who have LOTRO accounts(me) we should go and spread the word about our problem Inside lotro.. most people playing LOTRO are die-hard LOTR-Skyrim fans Im sure they will find it interesting... I already liked everything there was to like on Facebook... unfortunately i don't have other social networks although i will help however i can!
I guess the game WB's trying to make is somewhat similar to merp ? otherwise i don't see what's their problem. besides Lotr fans don't choose between the games they buy all of them! you know you can never get enough of Middle Earth.... and most important of all the guardians of middle earth is set for release on PS3 and Xbox consoles not PC so this just doesn't make sense!!!
Are you guys sure screaming and shouting is a good idea ? maybe you should do it quietly if WB thinks that this is a lackluster mod which no one is going to play they might just let it go...
Screw this If you guys abandon the work please don't remove all the data you have so far.. It is too good to die I will gladly improve my modding skills and continue work if that's what it takes and I doubt WB will find me where I live!!! so whatever the case this game will pass!
So how many LOTR games have to fail before they let this go through ? I believe in this mod because its being made by LOTR fans like me. not corporate perverts who only care about profits
Keep up the good work... DONT LET US DOWN MIDWAY!
I didn't mean literally knock on someones door :\ stop leaving annoying comments please you know what i meant
I'm 100% sure that there are skilled modelers and texturers who would like to make this game .. you just have to knock on a couple of doors! post stuff here and there let he people know that you are doing this ... if you only post this on moddb.com that it surely wont be finished :\.... lord of the rings is one of the most famous works of 20th century and you can't find anyone who could help you finish it ??!
This is epic ! Finally a good LOTR game. thanks to the developers
I read some comments and all of them say .. MOVE FASTER... I think I'm the only one who will say .... take all the time you need and even more ... waiting hasn't killed anyone yet but dissapointment has so just do your best and hope this game will meet our expectations whenever its out :D it will be awesome
I saw lord of the rings mod on youtube is this a different mod ?
