So many people showed up to play on Lord of the Rings Online’s progression server Anor yesterday that SSG had to rush to put up another one, Ithil, to beat back the 5000-person queues. That surprised me, given the consternation over whom exactly the server, which isn’t exactly a vanilla experience, was for. I did see some folks arguing that the server was only drawing crowds angling to save their favorite names and that the second server cut back the queues considerably. And yet folks like MOP’s Justin were in and playing happily. We even goaded MJ into taking a peek. And that sub requirement may be a nice perk for a lot of old-school players.
