* DevelopmentHell: The game was in development for 9 years, starting work as a top-down 2D game in the style of ''UltimaOnline'' in 1998 and eventually morphing into a post-''WorldOfWarcraft'' 3D game in 2007.
* FanNickname: The region Evendim is often referred to as Everswim, due to the giant lake that takes up a big part of the region which players have to cross on multiple occasions. The amount of necessary swimming across the lake has been reduced with later revamps of the area, with more swift-travel options to get across it having been added, but there are still times when you will be forced to go for a swim to get to your destination.
** After the Rise of Isengard-expansion was launched, the [[HubCity Dunland village of Galtrev]] quickly earned the nickname [[SignificantAnagram Lagtrev]], thanks to the lag caused by the abundance of players gathering there.
