Standing on the sidelines for release and the entire time Lord of the Rings Online was subscription based, I've always seen positive reactions about the gameplay graphics and most of all the community seemed to be the better ones of a long list of mmos. Practically no complaining at all. I'm being honest, I was about to subscribe exactly when the game was announcing F2P. This squashed any chance of playing as I don't like anything about F2P. For me F2P is cancer. Infact F2P destroyed my love for Dungeons and Dragons Online, I really did love that game.
Reflecting back, again still only on the sidelines, I don't remember complaints about low populations.
Now for my question for Veteran players.
Is it possible Lord of the Rings Online switch to Free-to-play just because it was a surprisingly financial good move for Dungeons and Dragons Online ?
- Was the population THAT low ?
- Was this against the wishes of the players ?
