Golden Joystick awards are upon us. For the US crowds out there - this is one of the more prestigious game award shows here in Europe. Lord of the Rings Online has been nominated in 5 categories this year - best MMORPG and best video game being some of those categories - so show your support and place your vote for LotRO at www.goldenjoystick.com.
The EU forums have the new Dev Corner thread open for submissions - The topic this month is crafting.

They discuss the number of subscribers (no actual numbers were disclosed), mounts and possible improvements (no actual info was disclosed) and Session play (ah yes the ever inspirational chicken - ehrem - session play). Check out the full telephone interview here.
