It's not empty, it's just people don't use the tools available to them for getting groups together. For every 5 people you see complaining about not getting a group together there are at least 30 that are aimlessly running around without looking at the LFF panel.

Thats what I am worried about, I wish they would merge servers or offer free switches to a high populated one. I am reluctant to renew because even when I played on release it was pretty empty.

Such a shame.
Played this game quite a lot, got a minstrel to around 43.
Loved the new "solo" skill-set for them.
The game looked gorgeous.
Yet, the gameworld felt....empty.
I could almost never get groups together to finish my book-quests, running through the world felt...lonely.

Such, such a shame because the game played very nicely.

Yeah it seems I spoke too soon. The game updated but I got to the server list and all of them were down. Now I can't even get back to the login screen.

Their whole website is down right now -- I suspect there are alot of folks at Turbine frowning mightily.

Days or weeks? It's only been a little over 2 hours since the servers were supposed to be back up. I'm sure they will be up and running soon.

Luckily I patched beforehand so I don't have to wait after the servers do manage to come back up. I can go right in and see how much they've hosed me with the reputation system changes.

if their internet connection hadn't dropped dead. Not an hour before, I was heard to comment about how minimal was LoTRO's downtime, especially compared to WoW. Perhaps I spoke to soon; should the problem persist for several more days or weeks I may have to rethink the comparison.
