LOTRO servers back online, Turbine to compensate Premium and VIPs for downtime

By Stephany Nunneley, Saturday, 16 February 2013 18:14 GMT

The LOTRO servers are back online after a longer than planned scheduled maintenance. To compensate players for the downtime, Turbine is giving all Premium and VIP players who have logged into their account in last 30 Days – as of 6:00am EST on February 14 – 250 Turbine points. All VIP players who have logged in during the same period will also have their accounts credited one day of VIP time for each day of downtime – plus an additional day. All points and additional time will be granted automatically as soon as players log in. More information is available through the game’s splash screen as you boot it up.
