MechChef, you nailed it right there. These won't be true referrals for the most part. It will be people buying two months' account time in order to get the mount.I'm sure they will try for a subscriber increase though. They did lose customers to AoC and they will lose customers to WAR. Though it tends to fly under the radar around here, Mines of Moria will also be out in the late fall for LoTRO which has shaped up to be a really excellent game.

LoTRO didn't even dent WoW's player base. The ones that went to AOC, 40% came back. And I know plenty of people, including me, who won't be buying WAR because of all the content the cut out. Fuck WAR if I can't play a Black Guard.

@MiaLotRO is overlooked by a lot of players here. While it is a similar game, it's a bit different of a player base. LotRO is more for the lore and pve while making it so people don't have to play the game hardcore. Both games attract different playerbases.Probably the biggest competition will be WAR since a big factor of WoW is the arena and PvP (especially with this new zone in Litch)
