You sure about that? I swore if you bought the moria box you had access to all of that and everything before it.

The Moria box was an expansion, so yeah. You would get that zone too if you bought it, but you wouldn't get any of the zones before. They had a package deal for a while called path of the fellowship where you could get trollshaws, eregion and moria but that was right before the isengard xpac

I personally feel that it's subscribers that's getting the shaft, but buyers of the game originally, because the amount of money used on the game at first, doesn't at all match the benefits of a founder/subscriber at all.

Thats what Im saying, I had already bought it and mirkwood before F2P hit. So i had access to it all... or I dunno cus I didnt stick once F2P came out. Couldnt stand the constant advertisements even though I was subbed.

Think I read that they changed that later to include it to former subscribers.

sorry i misread your post and edited mine. I was a subscriber too and i quit because it got too expensive, too much legendary item stuff that you either had to do a mindnumbing grind for or purchase on the store. It went way P2W before i had enough and unsubbed. Most guys in my kin were lowbie f2p from other countries who either grinded Gondoman skirm all day to lvl or just RPed all day long. Nice guys but i really couldn't do any content with them because they didn't have it.

Damn shame because Lotro was a really good game. I saw the riders of rohan exapansion and that looked pretty good too. Im a big lotro fan of the game, books and movies. I really wanted to see the entire story but F2P just turned me south. Much like it is doing here. I cant play a game that I feel I have to purchase stupid **** as a subscriber just to keep playing. Full blown expansions, no problem. Weak content just to generate cash, no thanks. If its full blown, ill reconsider. Until that point, Ill remain with my stance. I wont be burned twice.

Totally agree with you.
