Of course this just related to the US version. The European players get.. oh, nothing :)

I give Turbine a lot of flak for the lack of mid-high level solo content at launch, but you certainly can't claim that they haven't tried to expand their playerbase aggressively enough. Free, with the renewed Founder rate, is basically the only price that would even make me consider paying them another visit before their expansion has been out for a year (since that's how long it's taken them to finish with the 1-50 solo content).

That said, I'm curious how many players the free re-trial actually applies to. We'll never know, of course, cause Turbine doesn't release subscriber numbers (though they will happily not correct clearly erroneous guesses in the press). Anecdotally, everyone I know from WoW who jumped to LOTRO left after a few months due to lack of content. Perhaps this trial so soon after launch is as close as they'll come to admitting they launched too soon.

I'd write more, but it looks like my attempt to update my old client install is about to crash my computer. Good times.
