    Just unlocked both 'play as all' achieves. Used ori in a 1 lane, he was fun - but we lost because a team mate went 1-15.

    MOZGOG RAAARRR.12 for 1.

    They hotfixed the new guardians: they are very quick about it. Let's hope they get another patch done too!

    I'm now heading to the pub for a couple of swift festive pints. When I return I plan to be Lugballlsing it up for the rest of the evening.

    will be about for some more aimless wandering into ambushes and generally letting down my team from around 10.30 onwards.

    will definitely be stopping before 2am this time though as I have to get up and drive to southampton in the morning.

    Southampton is my place of residence. Welcome dear glo.

    I'll probably be on at some point. I'll be polishing up some Far Cry bits and pieces but if anyone wants a game send me an invite if you desire a semi competent Haldir/Legolas/Sauron.

    What a relief it was last night to finally get a game against people who weren't all apparently full-time MOBA-dwellers, giving us a chance to actually win a game after being ritually humiliated by people who've been round the Prestige cycle a couple of times already!

    Bought and used Ori out of curiosity - he's fairly weak in defence, but it doesn't take long for his abilities to do some serious damage, even compared to Lugballs, and having him specced for ability boosts meant that even if I didn't always claim the kills, the amount of damage that he can do in his generous proximity attacks left enemies horribly weakened for others to pick off.

    I've got much better at using potions - saved a couple of deaths with speeding-up potions, although I haven't got the timing right for any of the offensive ones really. Have completely forgotten about using Commands again, though, which is just silly.

    Bilbo Baggins might be the most annoying thing in the game!

    Anyone want a nice Xmas Eve session on this tonight? Seems like a good, slow-paced, social game for the season.

    I totally called it.

    @MrTomFTW Do you mean a good game to play whilst drunkenated?

    Am entertaining people all day, but might try and get on for a game or two if I can get rid of them early enough.

    That last game was very enjoyable, uglok or whatever his name is will be my warrior of choice going forward. Terrible lag in a couple of games though.

    Am away from the Xbox till the weekend, will definitely be on for some more games then though.

    I'm not on until the New Year, by which time I hope a patch is inbound!

    I persuaded a mate to buy this and we've had some cracking games working together down own lane.

    Still loving Thrain, I'm tempted to buy Thorin to try.

    Anyone else think match making has improved too? I get the feeling the game has more players now.

    I'm finally back on my couch this evening, so I'm up for a game or two.

    Though I don't know if #mostwantedfriday is on. And I'm also itching to crack Dragons Dogma open.

    If there's anyone else about, I'm in too... Bit late for me to say that though?

    Had a couple of terrible games with Sim last night where I went with my 'old reliables' Lugballz and Uglick and got absolutely battered. I then had a couple of games on my own and experimented, first with the elven archer who isn't Legolas, got on pretty well with him and went on to win.

    Then after that I somehow ended up in an Elite Battlegrounds game and chose Thrain. Although his moves aren't as exciting as some of the others, and his field of attack is tiny, but he's actually pretty great. Anyway the game itself was a 45 minute epic battle where at a couple of points I thought we were done for, but with Thrain the soldier killer clearing the top path my team eventually triumphed. When this game is good it's an absolute joy.

    It is. When it works etc it's so much fun.

    Thrain is quite powerful, as he has a lot of crowd control moves and can do some really nasty damage.

    He + a ranged striker/Arathorn is a horrible combination.

    Back on it. Only had one shit game, rest were smooth! Amazing!

    I expect more nightmares regarding teaming up.

    Still, good fun. I keep trying to play Mozgog and it only works 50% of the time.

    Uhhh, I'll be on... sometime soon!

    Yeah!

    If this gets patched soon I'll probably not play anything else for a bit.

    I hope they nerf Bilbo in the next patch, me Larry and Sim played late Friday and we spent most of our time bitching about Bilbo being over powered.

    They can hotfix guardians without patches: they've already done it three times or so, with Bert and Bilbo both having a little nerf, IIRC.

    However, if someone plays him well, with the right belt, and gets a level on you... KAPOW.

    Even if they nerf bilbo I am sure I will still find something to bitch about. I enjoy moaning.

    He does need a good nerf though (or else I need to find a tactic to stop him fucking up my shit and then teleporting away at whim)

    Would be up for a few games this week if anyone is about. Just send me an invite if I am playing something else.

    I think it's the sign of a good game, in a perverse way, when you spend a lot of time moaning.

    Or rather, you spend a lot of time moaning, because you spend a lot of time playing the game...

    As for Bilbo: he is like Gollum, very fragile. If you get a level on him he's toast, and multi-stun characters - e.g Thrain + Aragorn, will rinse him.

    Had some fantastic games this morning, hardly any net issues.

    Galadriel is a beast.

    Is it possible to play this with bots? I keep meaning to dip my toe in but the idea of abuse from team mates is slightly off putting.

    It is possible to play custom games against bots, yes, and also skirmish games where up to five humans play against AI only enemies. The 360 Demo allows you unlimited vs. Bot play, although only as Gandalf.

    Oddly enough, even when in game chat, the only voice comms I've had with strangers have been positive, with actual talking about where enemies are, where dangers are and stuff, and congenial 'good game' comments, and the like. Not at all what I was expecting.

    This doesn't mean that I don't regularly have games where a well-organised team steamrollers over any randoms I am with, but I've yet to witness any rage, although in games with other EGers, of course, we're usually in Party chat, but have occasionally dipped into game chat when we see mic symbols flashing.

    Thanks simp. I've just started the download as its free on PS+, if I enjoy it ill probably buy it on live as there seems to be a few people on my friends list playing it.
