they have resources devoted to bringing EU into the fold.
they have already canceled the promised pvmp update.
they just dont have any more to devote to a update 4.
we will get hotfixes and patches along with summer and fall festivals.
And don't forget that they are working on an "unnamed" MMO as well, which we'll probably hear about during E3.
But, sill, if they're spreading their Dev's and NetOps that thin, then it sounds like they need to do more hiring. "Not enough Devs" is the excuse they used prior to the WB buyout, F2P's "tripled revenues" and the $40 million plus in development money they got from the buyout. Now what's the excuse?
Some reply's remind us that not all LOTRO players are mature....
Anyway, i have to thank all LOTRO team for making this huge move to FTP. I was hopping i could play this game since it was released but never had the money do spend every single month. Now i can play a pay for what i need (and i already paid some content).
Thank you for creating this huge and extremly detailed world (both in terms of lore and landscape). Of course, not all things are good (the game economy is broken) but i still have hope you fix it.

Free Peoples' Press is more likely for new players, but not for old-one! Please give something for thous who are playing LOTRO for a long time and who know all about what you are writing in your Press.
But at least thank you for your activity. You at least are trying to do something for community. That is why I rate this Free Peoples' Press with 3 stars. Hope to see something better.
LOTRO has evolved through the years – from early days of raiding Helegrod’s enormous wings, to the tightly paced and challenging encounters of Ost Dunhoth. What was your favorite moment?
Funny, I thought this was the question they were looking for responses to?
So, my favorite moment - well I've got a few...
1. on one of my first forays as Slamfist. A stranger comes up to me near the quarry near Scary - "hey, nice name." Being my first week in an MMO, I was stunned. Someone talked to me. Then I realized he wanted me to talk back. I panicked but finally found the spot to say "hi" - He gave me a funny look, waved and ran off. I was finally in an MMO with real people and they were being nice to me.
2. The first time visiting Bag End. and the Party Tree. and the Green Dragon Inn in Bywater. wow!
3. The Stone Trolls Glade. Wandered into this completely unsuspecting. Woohoo!!! and even better, was last year when I was guiding my 8 year old hobbit as we followed Bilbo's trail to Rivendell. I knew we were coming up on the glade but he didn't (we'd been reading the Hobbit together). He saw the trolls and his cry of glee was priceless. By far my best moment in the game.
4. Rivendell. Meeting Frodo, Bilbo, Gandalf, even Boromir. So many others.
There's many more, but these are some of my highlight moments.
