Going for new big-time features without fixing issues that are here for 2+ years... Turbine are doing everything to catch new players and clearly shows they do not care about old ones who encounter old issues evey day. This is moving to completely marketing driven game now - advertising something shiny that may of course not work at all as described, but you cannot claim a refund here, can you ?
I have given up on LOTRO.
I don't expect anything good to happen in the short future this game may still have. This way, if somehow but very unexpected, they do manage to produce something that may eventually count as "good" I will be quite pleased.
The other way - to expect what they are advertising as a blast only proved to be a great dissapointment for me...
To the original poster and all that experience this issue - get a better computer and if this does not help - get a better game.
