    Anyone else get a notice? Looks like DDO and LOTRO are now owned by a new company, with similar developers and staffing as the old! I'm wondering if this is phishing..

    When you are given only a few options to follow-up (in this case, 'email' or 'mail'), I would avoid doing so as it could very well be a scam or phishing attempt.

    I'm not too "up" on games (in general) but one thing I do know, if your only option is to rely upon email you're limiting the protection of your personal privacy options and this, btw, is something most legit companies don't feel comfortable putting you in such a position (in lieu of 'important changes').

    @Shamus The Brute It's on their official website. I was just making conversation. ;)

    Yep it is official. The Turbine employees who worked on LOTRO and DDO separated from Turbine and Warner Brothers and became an independent game studio again. Quite interesting, but I think it's a good thing.
