Anyone Pre-order yet ?

I normally never pre-order a game but I had to with this one. I dont trust Turbine entirely but walking around in Middle Earth is something I've dreamed up for several decades.

The only other time I ever pre-ordered was so I could get automatic beta access and that didnt work out too well (Matrix).

    No, Pre-Orders are a bad Idea (learned that from DnL).

    I'm going to give this game 6 months before I decide to buy it because I believe most MMORPG's based upon famous IP's will just be developed half-assed and on the cheap (in order to make money off fans who would play it no matter what, learned that from SWG).

    Hope it works out though.

    Beta havent even started yet, and I dont preorder any game based on the faith I have for it.

    After we see some coments from players that actually are playing or testing the game, then I will think about pre-order

    Even though I worship this game, I will not pre-order it. Why? Because they want your money. They put up fake releace dates (occording to them, the game was releaced this May...), and other junk. I will not pre-order until the releace date comes from the mouths of the almighty devs.

    I can only be coaxed into pre-ordering with the promise of a beta slot, cool looking but useless pet bat and a bronze medallion with Aragorn's bust on it. Actually, once I'm sure the game will be released and there are some decent reports from beta testers... I'll be pre-ordering with the overnight shipping option.

    Na i never pre order a game unless I played in beta or I get a feel from other people if the game is worth buying!

    I pre-ordered Star Wars: Galaxies. UGh! It was a fairly good game at the start. But they butchered it very quickly and I felt like I was majorly ripped off. It wasn't cheap either... Grrr.... still makes me angry when I think about it...

    For LotRO though.... I might still consider a Pre-Order. I'm still not decided yet.

    Considering there is no official pre-order yet, and gamestop doesn't even have the right Developer listed (they show Midway) I will wait until Turbine announces a pre-order before considering it.
