Latest build number on BR (signed 08/20/2013) is 1200.x compared to 1102.x on live so it could very well be HD I guess... Anyone know the build number of 11.3? Presumably 1103.x
Andahlia (100BRG) - Annare (100MNS) - Grimdhaz (100RNK) - Grimdoin (100GDN)
Grimdoir (100CHM) - Tommelhood (100HNT) - Willegart (100WDN)
Meanwhile, I saw a tiny glitch, viz., I downloaded 22 launcher files and got no further. So after perhaps a minute, I said what the heck
and clicked on the little X to close the launcher. Whereupon it restarted and downloaded 7700-something .dat files.
After that it told me sternly that BR was not up, so I closed it again. Like so many other things, BR will be open when it's open.
Eruanne - Shards of Narsil-1 - Elendilmir -> Arkenstone
This is not to say that I think the license hasn't been or won't be renewed, just pointing out that there are two parties involved and you can't go by how one of them is doing and ignore the other.
If they said fall or autumn then that could be anytime in a chunk of 3 months.
They're probably being more tacet that they were for rohan due to the dodgy prepurchase info (they'll want to make sure thats spot on or face losing a lot of goodwill) the delayed launch as well as the spread of that launch over 6 (?) months. Now granted with the mounted system they were very overoptimistic about the time frame to get it both working and playable (still laggy as hell during busy times) but that will still be in peoples minds as rohan was most recent the expansion.
I strongly suspect that the beta will be chugging merrily a long for a while before date or dates for launch are pinned down. Hopefully this time, for their sake, they are able to get all of the expansion ready and out the door on launch day instead of splitting it up. Lotro has been about for quite a while so mistakes made with launches will be recieved more harshly than they would for new titles, learning from experience and all that.
Helms deep excitement is inside the hobbits bags of tokens atm. But maybe somewhere else soon Tm.
Is this Alternate Character Disorder? :

Honestly, I think we can blame Wal-mart and Target for us wanting info on Helm's Deep so early....
Christmas is what, less than 4 months away, but there is already stuff being sold at stores relating to Christmas, decorations, ornaments, lights, etc...
We were told Helms Deep would go live in the fall, and IMMEDIATELY we expected to know every bit of detail about it and get automatic invites to the BETA server 6 months ago.
now... I can remember a time when stores weren't so 'holiday oriented,' meaning they waited until thanksgiving to start pushing out the christmas stuff... but now... as soon as Christmas is over, you soon start to see stuff in stores about next years christmas almost half a year in advance...
With the daily unveiling of the helms deep pic on their twitter, i full expect to know something big about Helm's Deep within a week.

The day after Thanksgiving, traditionally. In fact...Thanksgiving was *moved* from the last Thursday in November to the 4th Thursday in November for that very purpose: To give merchants a longer (and, hopefully, more profitable) Christmas selling season. (The shift was done by FDR 1939 by proclamation and in Dec. 1941, made permanent by a joint declaration of Congress and signed by FDR).now... I can remember a time when stores weren't so 'holiday oriented,' meaning they waited until thanksgiving to start pushing out the christmas stuff... but now... as soon as Christmas is over, you soon start to see stuff in stores about next years christmas almost half a year in advance...
It's a good thing I'm not religious or my strong distaste for nearly anything to do with Christmas by the time the actual day rolls around would be seriously depressing.
