I'm playing in LOTRO and it's the most fun I've had in a long time. There is an expansion already planned for June. At only $10 a month, founders cost, I expect to continue playing the game even if I decide to also go on to Age of Conan.
I quit WoW over a year ago, when I reached level 57 and realized that I was heading for end game, meaning raids, which I loathe.
Is "customer service" an oxymoron? I remember the time when "the customer is always right". That is, service meant something because money was involved. Nowdays, buyers tolerate anything; they don't realize money talks.
I believe experienced players are looking for a true next generation online game. We are getting bored with cookie cutter games: leveling, grinding, no new classes, too few races, endgame, economies that suck because of inflation and gold farming, very little innovation, lack of indepth story lines, inability to change the world, just generally a lack of really interesting stuff to do. Age of Conan promises some changes to all that. We will see.
Re your comment about LOTRO: Not-so-good: Finding where to hand in quests can be difficult. The quest text usually doesn't tell you where the original quest giver was located and if you are like me, playing for a few minutes and coming back in a day or so you don't remember where.
Are you aware there is a history button at the bottom of the quest window? It shows all information leading and following that quest. It is a pain sometimes, having to to do that, but I always do find the quest giver.
Also, saying the game lacks polish, that is an opinion I don't share. I guess it depends on what you mean by polish. The game is still in beta, so I'm sure there will be some still added before/at release.
