So, for the last four years or so, Codemasters have run the Lord of the Rings Service in Europe, on behalf of Turbine, but Turbine are taking it back.
1. What’s happening?
Turbine is taking over full operations of The Lord of the Rings Online™ throughout Europe starting June 1, 2011. We’re merging the US and EU services into one mega-service we’re calling the LOTRO Global Service.
This includes the servers used to present the EU service being hosted in the US. Lots of change, I hope the game I know and love survives.
