Lotro is a good game, i still drop in a play a few times a month. it is a bit sparsely populated but with it going free to play maybe that will change. it’s not surprising they have done this as with WoW going from strength to strength, DC Universe Online and Star Wars: The Old Repunlic coming out this year and a slew of other MMO’s on the horizion lotro probably would of lasted much longer.
