This poll idea was sent in off our Facebook page from William S. asking about the player type and the resolution they play in.
I also (always) appreciate the high-res images used in the Guides, such as the reward/Barter items. I’ve only recently been able to play regularly in high-res, after roughly four years in LotRO. The difference in quality changes so much about a player’s ability to suspend disbelief and become immersed in the game.
I wonder how many of the (younger?) Free players are in low-res, and is an unconscious factor in the amount of their complaints.
It is probably possible that some are not aware there is a high-res LOTRO client. They downloaded to try it or downloaded from Steam and kept the download they had not giving much thought to other options. I know one reason is some player’s computers simply will not handle the high-res and not much can be done in that situation (well that doesn’t cost some cashola) so that’s completely understandable.
Feel free to leave a comment to expand upon why or perhaps how you play with the framework you do! We are considering “Medium Res” as anything between Low and High settings.
