LOTRO is actually very good and is now going to be Free to Play for everyone.
Now you can get your hobbit on without having to pay every month for your shame.
They will be offering several different pay options. The first being the traditional Micro-Transactions where they sell you the expansions, and some extra quest sets. The other is more interesting. They are going to ask for a one time yet to be announced fee in exchange for unlimited access to content and a monthly allowance of points to spend on the LOTRO store.
This is pretty intriguing. I have heard some very good things about LOTRO and now I can give it a real try.
