LOTRO Revenue Doubles

MCV has word on the results of Turbine's decision to drop subscription fees for The Lord of the Rings Online, saying the move has doubled the game's revenue. Word: "In addition, a million new accounts have been created and 20 per cent of the game’s former players have returned. Peak concurrency has jumped by 300 per cent and the total active players count has increased four-fold."

And oddly, zero gold-spammers, from what I've seen on Landroval.

Unlike in, say, WoW, Turbine aggressively suspends/bans players that BUY gold.

I had a friend who got banned for 30 days a few minutes after she received purchased gold. They're watching gold traffic seriously, looks like. (This happened before F2P, too.)

If you can't cut the supply, annihilate the demand.
