LOTRO Server Closures

Like many scroungers and scavengers on the interweb, I have been indulging in Lord of the Rings Online for the past week.

While we wont get into any moans and gripes about the game, one thing is starting to get to me. As a subscriber of the game I have been acustomed to playing Middle-Earth in relative peace and comfort. Like an idle Shire folk I gently put in one or two hours every so often but since the free 2 play conversion, well its been hell.

New players on my lawn, newbies spilling out of pubs at all hours. Middle Earth is going to the metaphorical dogs. So without further ado, the point of this blog. Since the influx of new Middle Earth'ers Turbine have been shutting down the servers with reckless abandon.

There I am simply slaying spiders in Chetwood, trying to achieve a deed, gain a title, and chase those soon-to-be opiate like Turbine Points. All of the sudden and like a shot in the dark, a message appears on the screen "THE SERVER IS ABOUT TO CLOSE, FIND A SUITABLE PLACE TO LOG OFF IMMEDIATELY" well what was one to do? Before I could say "Huckle Berry Ferry" my screen had frozen, my level 11 Champion was engaged in an eternal battle with two spiders. What was I to do? 

And on goes my week, everytime I play a server closure looms close threatening to spoil my fun. Perhaps they see me coming? Who knows.
