Everyone go give them money so they can make AC2.. a real one this time. We'll call it AC2b.

I'd be down for a new Asheron's.

Like DDO the games started booming when they went F2P and have been doing well since. Turbine is doing F2P right in striking the balance in what's free and what you have to pay for. It got me to sub to DDO and LOTRO for a few months each. I plan to go back to both at some point, as well as pick up the Isengard expansion, but there's just too much other stuff going on atm.

Getting LotRO back on store shelves is probably a good thing for it, especially with the pre-Christmas flood of new games on the way.

Turbine also has a forum posting today that they are hiring engineers: http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?425540-LOTRO-is-hiring!

Perhaps they made money off the recent expansion and are re-committing to the title.

Victory needs no explanation; defeat allows none.
