Lotro EU lost?

JaldrenJaldren CorkPosts: 310Member Uncommon

Ok, just decided to go back, and to my surprise, the is no LOTRO EU anymore

 

Some googling later, I found out that turbine now owns LOTRO EU, and I didn't transfer my chars

 

Does this mean That I lost my account, with all my chars and all my vet points?

 

Please let me know

    There's probably a method for getting them back, there was when another game Codemasters published was taken away from them.

    Thanks for your quick reply

     

    Any idea on what to do next?

     

    Already sent them an email, but doubt I'll receive an answer soon

    Dead line for character transfers was loooong time ago.

    I think it is impossible to restore them now.

    Looks like you could only transfer the characters over to Turbine's systems for a limited 6 month period during 2011 unfortunately http://support.turbine.com/link/portal/24001/24001/Article/3242/Closure-of-Codemasters-Migration-Services-for-LOTRO-and-DDO

    So lost a top-tier Minstrel, with all the account benefits?

     

    Nothing I can do?

    They were sending a lot of mails about the transfer.

    Yeh I think your character is completely lost.

    Codemasters had their license removed fairly quickly they have no obligation to provide data. I think the old equipment has probably been wiped and sold on as old parts by now.

    suffered a loss here too. anyone knows if anything can be done?

    i spent a lot on this game to just restart for no good reason, common sense would dictate that codemasters transfer all their lotro accounts to turbine

    Currently playing- SWG PreCU & GW 2
    Have tried WoW, AoC, & Vanguard, SWG:NGE, GW, LOTRO & SWTOR

    Nothing can be done since codemasters removed their lotro database.

    It's because of EU privacy laws that owners had to personally share their account info with Turbine instead of codemasters transfering all lotro accounts.

    Nothing can be done. They are gone now.

    As others have said, all the data that codemasters have is either gone, or no longer transferable.  The limited window for transfer is gone.  This must really suck, especially whatever you had unlocked on your account.  Characters can be replaced easily, but to anyone who lost all their quest packs, expansion, etc etc, wow, that must really suck.

    i got original shadows of angmar, mines of moria and mirkwood expansions, all character slots used minimun character 35. spend few dolls on cosmetics aswell not to mention hours wasted. now. i did miss the transfer window aswell since my first baby born and didnt pretty much play anything nor cheked my game email.

     

    now i lost all those and cant get them back, if i want to play game again i need to buy everything again so no thanks.

    and as  my opinion great world great story even an infant can make good base for mmo from there BUT

    everything else just sucks big time as mentioned various times everywhere before about slow combat to sucky pvp.

     

    and the biggest flaw in my book was anyway at the beginning that there was no option players to create opposite from free peoples means 2 faction gameplay. and yet they brought slowly after release that weak monsterplay.

     

    so i was going back to this game for awhile for waiting some new releases but nah. everything in there now just costs too much to get all back .
