I was reading the
Bullroarer Release Notes for the upcoming Update 3 for LOTRO the other day, and one thing immediately caught my eye:
“Fog of War” on the world map no longer exists. You will now be able to see the world map in its entirety without having to visit every area.
I guess a lot of players would immediately find this to be a nice change. No more guessing, no more not knowing. It also fits with the latest trend of dumbing down our MMORPG bit by bit. But it actually saddened me, even if the “Fog of War” in LOTRO was only the crude version.
Is “Fog of War” in MMORPG slowly becoming an endangered feature, soon to be extinct?
