LOTRO: Free-to-Play

I was in the beta, back in 2007. I think it's now slightly worse than it was then.

Hasn't this been in maintenance mode for around 5 years or so?

They've been releasing new content regularly. The Minas Morgul expansion came out late last year.

They've had two expansions since moving from WB/Turbine to Daybreak/Standing Stone Games, the latest came out in late October or early November last year. They do keep adding content, so I don't think it qualifies for a typical definition of maintenance mode. On the other hand, since Warner Brothers ditched them, it has always felt like they didn't quite have the resources one would hope to see keeping an MMO going, that SSG could disappear at any moment, and that all of the time since 2016 has been bonus time.

guess i should go to the wedding before i can't.

I think the wedding itself is part of a questline that will stick around.

I just came back to LOTRO after an almost 7 year absence, last time I played seriously was right around the time that Helm's Deep came out.

So far I have been enjoying myself but I haven't gotten to the Mordor or Minas Morgul content yet.

If anyone else is playing on Landroval let met know. I have 8 or 9 toons that I bounce around between on the server and think it would be fun to connect anyone in the GWJ community on Landy. My two main characters are a 87 Burglar Tarabren and a 107 Captain Taralyn-1. Feel free to friend them, I will likely be on the burglar in the near future as I try to get her caught up in the story as she is what I would call my "main" despite the fact that she is currently not my highest level character.
