Although we have received no official word directly from EA, many of you have been reporting over the last couple of days that the leaderboards for The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II
have now been reset.
This means that the previously unobtainable Try a tutorial
achievement is now available. Whilst the achievement offers zero Gamescore, for many this is the last achievement needed for 100% completion.
It also makes The Hobbit and the Troll
achievement a lot easier to obtain. From reading comments on previous stories, this appears to have been all but unobtainable to the vast majority of players, and currently offers a nice TA score and ratio.
As reported last week
, EA has already given the Xbox 360 servers an extension until 11th January, 2011, before they will be permanently shutdown; resetting the leader boards is a nice touch to the games community and has certainly improved my opinion of EA in the process.
