Re: The reason why people like WoW better than LOTRO
I was in the closed beta for WoW. At that time, I thought it had some potential. Along came launch. I created my characters on Argent Dawn (RP). Every time the PvP servers went down, the most immature leet kiddies crashed the server just to be complete @#@#@@#%#$$#. Eventually, that stopped when the servers became more stable, but the community was never one that I found appealing (especially after the great ones I experienced in prior MMORPGs). Quit less than a year in and never looked back.
LoTRO, by comparison... I was in the closed beta and became a founder/lifetimer at launch... 5 years later, I'm still here.
