Default Re: The Lord of the Rings Online Going Free

Well, it's true that players are pissed off about the lack of new content. Obviously there is 12-18 months of new content development that was cut back to too small expansions and the development effort was put into free-to-play.

That is fine, however, if they use the new revenue to invest more into new content and in any case after f2p goes live they have the development resources back. I think it is fairly certain that this will happen, because f2p is a huge investment and they wouldn't do that with a game that they plan to get stale.
