The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game | Published 27 May 2011

The perils of Middle-earth have claimed the lives of countless would-be heroes, and with every passing day, the forces of corruption grow stronger. A legendary few are immortalized by minstrels and storytellers, but countless other heroes are too often quickly forgotten. As the fate of Middle-earth unfolds, who will remember the great deeds of these chosen few?

My breath caught in my chest when I saw it was online -- could it finally be an online game from FFG?!  But no.

 So ranking will return for the LCG's again, right?

This was the only reason I signed up - thank you very much for this.

I would love to see a personal Win/Loss ratio available on the summary screen. I want to see the win percentage according to how many players played. It would be nice if they were all about 50% but I suspect it won't be that even.

2 suggestions.

Can the Heroes have their sphere listed after them ?

Can the quested bew listed in order of difficulty or release date ?

Pretty neat. I wonder if it would be possible to do this for the other LCGs as well.

 Using an Apostrophe like in Celebrian's Stone in the Notes section causes the quest log to break.

Very cool and finally coerced me to sign up for a forums account.  I think I found a bug, however.  I used the word "I'm" in my notes for one of my games.  When I tried to log the play it returned a MySQL error page.  I changed my text to "I am" and it logged the quest without a hitch.  I hope this helps!

Thanks for creating this awesome tool FFG!

Sweet! I was doing this myself manually but this is perfect! I'm especially excited because I've been worried about the game not scaling well enough, there's such a huge difference between solo and four players and 3 and four can sometimes feel too easy. Now FFG can also directly see if there's any scaling issues, very smart.

Big up FFG. Awesome!

All right, that is pretty darn cool.  I wish I had kept track better now to put old plays up.
