Smaug DLC bug fix

January 15th, 2014

Greetings GOME community,

In the most recent update to the game an issue with the Smaug’s Treasure DLC came to light resulting in some community members having the amount of 160,000 gold deducted from their account. We have now addressed that issue. To make sure that all players have their gold balance restored and to apologize for the inconvenience we are awarding all current community members that have played before 01/07/14 a sum of 300K gold. The 300K will be added to your current total. Please keep in mind, this fix may take a few hours to populate.

Thank you for your continued support and feedback!

*Edit* It's taking a bit longer than initially expected to give out your gold, but please rest assured it is coming.

I´ve seen a lot of bad MOBAs, but this, this takes the cake. I see no reason to play this pay-to-win game when there are so many great MOBAs out there for free. I encountered heavy Lag issues when playing against other people, cant get heros without paying money (except a small starting pool) and even as a Lord of the Ring fan, i was dissapointed about the loveless implemetation of the chararcters. To sum it up: NOPE

Do not buy this game. It was terrible on the consoles, and it did not improve on the PC. Since it started, I still cannot join a match with a full complement of other human players. Most of my games are against bots only. More to the point, DOTA 2 is superior in every way to this game, and that game is for free. I see no reason to spend money on this travesty of a MOBA.

This game is poo stain because it is.

I like the characters like the big fat ogre with sweaty nipples but that is irrelevant.

The queue times take longer than it takes to cook a small child on Mark 10 and I nearly fell asleep.

When I got ingame it put me into a 5 v 5 match with 4 bots on each team and some guy who spent a bajillion ungandan dollars on the game. He proceeded to wipe the floor with me like my mother did after I threw up in the kitchen.

Acquired this game through the Humble Bundle and being a LOTR fan, I was really excited to jump in game. Unfortunately for this game with immense amounts of potential, the developers seem to have neglected any sort of updates or fixes for the PC client. Can't speak for the console version of the game, but it can't be much better.

I would hold off several months and see if any changes are made later on, but until then, not worth playing.

Being a huge Lord of the Rings fan, and somewhat fan of the whole MOBA genre, it bums me out to see a game with such potentional, never amount to anything. The lag spikes is really what kills it for me. Not to mention (despite that lag) that I was actually having rather hard time with mouse and keyboard, rather than using an controller.
