  • Fanfest, Mergers and More

    MMORPG.com has posted their report on the recent Fanfest in Iceland...

    Seven-hundred people from roughly twenty countries descended on Reykjavik, Iceland to celebrate the third annual EVE Online Fanfest. Despite its size, CCP Games successfully created an intimate affair with developers mingling throughout the fans from the moment the doors opened to the wee hours of the morning. Icelanders know how to throw a party.

    We were not just there for the expensive alcohol though. CCP brought in fans and press alike with the lure of information on their epic three part expansion formerly known as Kali. Now called Revelations, the first third of it hits the live servers on November 28th and promises to change and grow the game quite significantly.

    More information is just a click away! Stop by our EVE Ten Ton Hammer Community site. Did you attend the Fanfest? Tell us all about it in the Ten Ton Hammer Forums today!

  • Exploring Middle-earth: Bilbo's Stone Trolls

    The official site for The Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another in the series called Exploring Middle-earth.

    The adventures of Bilbo Baggins, as chronicled in The Hobbit, nearly ended rather abruptly in the area known as the Trollshaws when he and his companions encountered three trolls named Bert, Tom, and William. Bilbo and the dwarves narrowly escaped becoming a meal for the hungry trolls after Gandalf intervened and set the trolls to arguing over the best way to prepare a feast of Hobbit- and Dwarf-meat.

  • Upcoming Changes to Mail and the Auction House

    The official forums for Dungeons and Dragons Online has been updated again with news of changes coming to the mail and auction systems in game.

    In the next update we are doing a complete restructure of the Auction House fees. Posting fees have both reduced and simplified. Previously we used a fairly complicated formula to determine the posting fee for an item. We are now going to be using a percentage of the item's value which will increase based on the length of the auction.

    Keep reading to learn more. How do you feel about these changes? Let us know in our Ten Ton Hammer Forums today.

  • Development Update Talks About Death Penatly Changes

    The official forums for Dungeons and Dragons Online has been updated with a post that discusses some changes to the Death Penalty.

    We have completed our initial evaluation of the death penalty system and are in the process of making some changes. The first change we made was to increase the amount of experience you regain by using a Resurrection Shrine from 25% to 50% to match the amount granted by using the Raise Dead Spell. This change is already live and helps ensure that Clerics (and characters with high Use Magic Device skill that use Raise Dead scrolls on the rest of the party) will no longer suffer the worst death penalties of any class.

    Head over and read the rest of the update. Have you stopped by our DDO Ten Ton Hammer Community site lately? Stop by today and check out our exclusive guides and information.
