** ''Lalia.'' Lalia, Lalia, Lalia. [[XMeetsY Combine]] the worst elements of TooDumbToLive with EscortMission, turn them UpToEleven, make the object of the quest completely defenseless, and ensure that players practically have to be in a fellowship to complete the quest (in a mostly soloable area), and you have the most hated character in all of Lotro. Some players (who have experienced this quest before and have become fed up with it) have admitted to activating the quest, only to walk off and leave Lalia to herself, [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential leading to her dying]] at the hands of the Barrow-Wights.

** While Thomas is no longer working on the game's soundtrack, the in-house musicians have taken inspiration from him and progressed by leaps and bounds. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osUvrdMwq58&index=53&list=PLQe8R50yGwl20xVkknWCa5SVp1un0Pdxw Hammer of the Underworld]], heard during the siege of Minas Tirith, is proof of this.

** The news that High Elves will be the next playable race [[DownplayedTrope isn't stirring up as much of a storm as the above]], but has still divided those who care. One camp says that this will open up new gameplay opportunities. The other says that there are few, if any, High Elves left during the War of the Ring, and that the existing elves make this new choice redundant.

** The premium housing introduced in Update 19 is fast becoming this -- specifically, the upkeep.[[note]]The weekly update must be paid in ''mithril coins''.[[/note]] Some believe this is perfectly fine, and is a good way for Turbine to monetize housing. Others think that it's a ripoff, and will make premium housing unattainable for all but the richest players.

** The Battle of the Pelennor Fields is more brutal and despairing in the MMO than in any book, movie, and game that depicts its solely by virtue of the player being right in the middle of the action and many of the characters that are DoomedByCanon are characters that we have come to know and even care about. While the deaths of characters like Theoden and Halbarad are expected and can be prepared for, the fate of Horn is especially saddening. [[spoiler: If Halros was not convinced to leave the Shire, then Horn dies as he was foretold to leaving behind Nona as a widow and his child without a father. On the other hand, if Halros was convinced to leave the Shire, he dies TakingTheBullet for Horn. This leaves Horn a broken man who considers himself a coward and no longer worthy to be called Rohirrim. [[ThatManIsDead He asks that his name be put on the funeral pyre]] and leaves to an unknown fate.]]
