The LOTRO Game Servers will be brought down on Thursday, November 1st from 7:00 – 10:00 AM Eastern (-4 GMT) for an update to the game. This brief update will address the reports of rubberbanding that we have received. This is a server side fix only, no game data will be changed. Thanks for your patience, and we’ll see you back in the game soon!
