You have probably noticed that Lotro forums are down. Turbine team announced forum maintenance but they didn't release any official reason why the forums are offline.
We have identified a potential issue in the forum system. As a precautionary measure we have disabled our forums while we investigate. We will bring the forums back online when we complete our work. We thank you for your patience.
Please follow us on Twitter @LOTRO or like us on Facebook to receive updates during the maintenance.
