Thank you for being a part of The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ community! This summer is going to be a very busy one for LOTRO, so we'd like to take a moment to share some of the things that we are working on with you.
If you are part of a guild in another MMOG don't forget to get other members of your online gaming guild to register – if someone in your guild gets into the Beta, it automatically increases your chance of getting in. The top 10 largest guilds will automatically receive up to 100 Beta invites and the remaining top 90 will get up to 20 invites! So even if your guild isn't very large, it still benefits you and your guildmates to all sign up. The best way to encourage guildmates to sign up is to post the LOTRO Beta URL (http://lotro.turbine.com/betasignup) on your guild forum or email it to your guildmates directly.
We'd also like to mention that we've published a new What is LOTRO? feature on our website. We've combed over all of our previous interviews, articles, and dev diaries to compile a definitive summary of what LOTRO is all about. If you're new to the community, you'll most likely find this information very useful.
Development on the game is proceeding rapidly. Beta invites won't be far behind!
Thanks again for being a part of the community, and we hope to see you in Middle-earth sometime soon!
The LOTRO Community Team
