    Thanks for the update!

    Apparently the lotro twitter minion couldnt be bothered and the website has the info buried near the bottom of a sidebar.

    Generally if I know an online game is going to be down I wont bother starting the launcher for it.

    I think my wife is working with Turbine somehow to have the game down most of the day on Valentines Day. ;-)

    So far the forums seem to be working normally. People are posting.

    Wonder if they will credit all of our VIP accounts for the 1 day downtime.

    You know its a joke that they can’t do their backbone maintenance and keep everything up. I happen to work in the enterprise industry and 24 hours of planned downtime would be entirely unacceptable. Just goes to show me Turbine has the same unprofessional attitude when it comes to maintenance they’ve had since Asheron’s Call

    Maybe all the wives threatend divorce if their husbands did not stop messing with the game and spend some time with them.

    They’ve extended the downtime again and have no current ETA to be completed at, according to the Facebook page.
