I joined LOTRO shortly after launch and enjoyed it for several months until the following three things bogged me down:
1) The Gold Spammers, I was receiving 2-3 messages a day (about 4-6 hours of gaming). I finally had enough of the dev's seeming inability to stop it and left.
2) I had no luck finding fellowships, I was level 36 and had never completed any of the chapters and found it difficult finding people to adventure with.
3) The reputation system which was inserted into the game with such little reward and such blatant grinding turned me off. Unfortunately because I couldn't find groups to run with I often found myself doing the rep quests because I had a hard time completing any other quests.
So my question would be: Have they dealt with the gold spammers, has the population on the various servers grown, and have they added more 35th+ level solo quests?
