Must be a good deal of people testing it, taking forever to create the beta account, reminds me of WoW on a regular night when trying to login.

I file any game based on a movie under 'Exploitation Title' and don't waste the money on them.

It's a closed beta, so you can't just download the client and play it. I got my invite last week but haven't had time to fool around with it. I created an account last night and ran the install this morning before I went to work so I hope to get a feel for it when I get home late tonight.

Is there anything left of Middle Earth Online in it or has it all been reworked into another WoW clone by Turbine since they took it over? I loved the books, movies were ok, this game follow the books strictly and have an in-depth storyline?

Next phase of beta starts on the 30th

Got my character (Dwarf Warrior) created. As soon as I tried to leave the starting area the server went boom, though.

Created my character, played through the first zone, then got booted. Anyone else having audio problems? Or is there not much sound in there to begin with, also, anyone else notice the animations are very jerky, or is it just my system lagging?

I think I'm too Tolkien-centric to enjoy this game. Do they have people running around casting fireballs and such? :p
