I preordered the game at codemasters and got through an email redirected to Fileplanet for the download. I hate that website! It not only tries to lure you into getting a paid subscription, but also makes you install their downloadmanager! It is the only website that I know of that forces its own software down your throat and this only to download a client to be able to participate in a game i paid the preorder already for! I only want the LOTRO gameclient, not a subscription at a website that has nothing to do with the game!
If anyone of you know an alternative website to download from, please let me know. I refuse to have anything to do with Gamespy or Fileplanet crap! I already had to create two seperate accounts at codemasters, one for their normal site and another gameaccount for the codemasters online website. That is enough!
