Brace yourselves

In a tweet from the official Lord of the Rings Online twitter, it now appears that the Steam Wallet is currently unavailable and payments using it will not work at this time. 

We will continue updating this situation as more information is available. 

The original story is below:

For those of you who have been following The Lord of the Rings Online lately, you know that last month the game experienced some of the worst downtime in its history. Well, based on a tweet from the official Twitter account, LotRO players might be experiencing a bit of déjà vu.

Last month, the game servers were either down or largely unplayable for over a week due to server issues that the team still really hasn't fully explained almost a month later. Today, a tweet from the official Lord of the Rings Online Twitter page looks like those issues might be coming back, though currently the game worlds are remaining open.

Hopefully this is simply a hiccup and that these issues don't see widespread server outages again. We'll be sure to keep an eye on the situation and update this report should new details arise.
