It was the best of years, it was the worst of years for Lord of the Rings Online — but no matter what, it wasn’t a boring year. As this Tolkien MMO entered into its 11th year of operation, we’ve arguably seen more buzz, interest, and participation than we did back in 2017. And that was with the 10th anniversary celebration and the Mordor expansion!
