When I first read the announcement, I was upset. I was very upset.
But the more I read from what the developers and community managers have to say, the more I calm down and think it’s not going to be too bad. As a lifetime member, I do not loose any of my current benefits. I can keep playing in full and get 500 TP a month at no cost.
Everytime Turbine makes a big announcement, doom-and-gloom and hysterics occur. I am choosing to stay as far away from that as possible, so I am probably not going to be spending a whole lot of time in the forums.
I have also realized that I’ve been spending more time writing and reading about LOTRO than actually playing it, so I am going to be playing a lot more now. I apologize, as this means a decrease in articles, but I really miss just playing and not analyzing everything. I will post articles a few times a week, but not as much as I do now.
Have fun adventuring,
