I've been playing the Turbine version for the last few weeks, I've abandoned my codemasters account because I'm tired of waiting for any news on updates on its F2P status. I'm having a blast on Windfola, I've joined several pick up groups and found the community to be very helpful and friendly so far. It also seems that there is a fair amount of EU players, there are always players around whenever I log on.
I have a few friends from my GW guild coming to join me, some are still hanging for the EU F2P release but as time goes by I expect them to bite the bullet too. Eventually there will be 5 or 6 (maybe less, maybe more) joining me in LotRO. It would be great for us to find a home away from home within the community here on Windfola.
Ideally we would like a mature, respectful, relaxed, friendly and casual Kinship. We are a nice, helpful bunch and we know how to have a laugh but without doing so at other peoples expense. If anyone knows of an EU friendly kinship that they think would suit us then please let us know
Re: EU Player/s looking for casual, mature kinship
You may want to check out the House of Blackrock. While I wouldn't say we have a lot of EU players, we most certainly have some and we are very definitely everything else you described in your post. We are a long established kinship (since game launch) with many players. There are always people on to chat or to possibly form groups. Check out our web site which I have linked in my signature where you can read some history on HoB and read our charter. You can also read our thread in the official forum right here.
