i might be the only one. but i'm glad. as long as the delay means a better game anyways. none of this AC2 <explicit> stuff from M$ to force an early release. so hopefully this will all turn into a good game. it does interest me and i love middle earth so who knows. its also got a lot of innovative things going on so perhaps they need more developement time to make sure it all works properly.
the only thing that bothers me is that they didn't actually say WHEN in 2005.... so it could be january it coold be december..... 2005 isn't much of a timeline. like first half/seecond half would be a good thing to know.
I think this (and a lot of games) are delaying their release because they know if they don't update their graphics, they'll get slaughtered by Everquest 2. EQ2 is setting the bar much higher than many of these MMORPG's in development.
Hope MEO can catch up and get up to speed.

I don't mean to hate but are you reffering to the claymation engine of EQ2? Yes the claymation technology in that game is astounding! I havn't seen such intense graphics since Gumbi.
I think that this is an excellent decision! I don't want to play another half-assed game, and I expect a lot from this one. The world of ME is so huge, and detailed. The only way to recreate it is through time and quality. They should focus on the smallest details, and beef up the graphics to max. Wonder if Peter Jackson will be playing?
Well, once again, I hope they can turn this game into something that can compete with the major MMO's out there. I like the idea of a longer beta though, only if I can get into it
It's strange they would have a release date of 2005 and not have anything to market at E3 2004. Most games are announced and have some sort of marketing material two year prior to release.

I say it's not a bad thing... At least it won't be released too early and rushed like some other MMORPGs were. All good things are worth waiting for, right?
I think it's better late and good then quick and not that good...
