    I play it on an older PC that only has on-board graphics, and it runs okay. Doesn't look great, but it's still more than playable :) Playing on lower settings isn't demanding at all.

    It's free to try out, so just stick it on to download overnight sometime.

    Gawd, yes. I know I'll be wanting to play this after watching The Hobbit.

    How big is the download?

    Is it bad I only ever got this game for the Monster PvP.

    No other game I know lets me play a giant spider...which was the entire reason I got Lotro but kind of got sick of the massively long walks inbetween monster base and...wherever I needed to be.

    Still the PvE I did play seemed alright.

    I'm afraid you've waited too long, they kept the transfer system open as long as they could (or chose to), but it's now closed. You old characters thought one could simply walk into Mordor, tried, and got fed to the Fell Beasts. Sorry to bring that bad news, Daz190uk :(

    They couldn't keep them any longer because, since they no longer ran the game, they were legally bound to remove that data from their servers by a certain date due to Data Protection laws. Those same laws prevented them from just handing over your details and character data to Turbine without your consent.

    It's unfortunate, and you'd have hoped that they'd send out an e-mail to all non-transferred accounts before then (maybe they did? I'm not sure) but that's how it is. At least it gives you the opportunity to start again with the others in this thread, though that's of little comfort I imagine.
    That's a real shame. I've not played this in a couple of years (I went through a period of weaning myself off MMOs) but I had a pretty high level character which I assume will now have disappeared.

    What's the game like these days? I remember the graphics always being lush (MUCH better than WoW, for instance), but the environment suffered from a lack of players and quality content. Too many quests which needed groups, but too few people on servers kicking about and willing to help out.

    Has it picked up over the last few years?

    There's a few of us RPS-types on Withywindle, not that that helps you much.

    Helm's Deep is looking great. I've pre-ordered. Levelled now and just doing the dailies atm. interspersed with RAIDS/Instances etc.

    Anyone still playing?

    I just reinstalled last week. Nowhere near far enough in the game to bother with any expansions yet. I'm still in Bree, so Helms Deep is just a dream at this point.

    Still a great game though, I just get bored quickly when stuff doesn't have spaceships :p

    Nope, Snowbourne. A few EGers started on that when it went free to play. I did have a character from before that but wanted to start afresh.

    I do care, but I care enough to already know. I don't play much though, only popped on to redeem that Steely Dawn pack from the Humble Bundle. Looks nice though.
