Turbine Loses its Patience

Today marks a sad day in the LOTRO Community. Today, Patience announced on Twitter that this Friday will be her last day at Turbine. Here’s what she had to say on the forums:

Without question, working at Turbine and with such incredible communities, games, and players has been the highlight of my career. I have so many excellent memories – the birth of the populs, the legends of the chinchillas, LOTROG I & II, meeting so many of you at PAX on both coasts, plus a lot of our European players at GamesCom! Alpha, pre-beta, closed beta, open beta, launch and beyond. What a great six years it’s been.

I’m heading back to the west coast, where I grew up (yes, Virginia, there is such a thing as a Los Angeles native), to be closer to my family. I am going to miss my Turbine family very much, but thanks to Twitter and Facebook, this isn’t goodbye.

You are all in very capable hands with the community folks old and new (well, Sapience is old, anyway – HA! YES! ONE LAST DIG!). They’ll keep working hard to keep the community informed and thriving all the way to Mordor.

Take care, my friends, and safe travels in Middle-earth!

With much affection,
Meghan, aka Patience

Good luck, wherever the road may take you :)
