People that play LOTRO have had DX10 since October 2007.

I knew I should have mentioned it. :) I think Turbine will be one of the first MMO companies to take advantage of DX11 as well. Thank you for your comments.

I've enjoyed DX10 support in LotRO so far... They turned off distant lighting effects with it in the new patch, but beyond that it's not bad. Basic stencil shadows look a lot better, water more properly hits shorelines... plus the shading of all the trees that moves with the wind and properly bends is honestly pretty damn impressive.

I wish it ran a little better (I have zero issues in DX9, but there can be some hiccups in busy areas), but still it's nice.

A lot of my bias over AoC has been due to how poorly they handled the announcement of the removal of DX10. I might subscribe some random month when it's in place just to see it, though.

DX11? Where's all the games using DX10?
Oh, right, the whole thing about so many people being ill-informed and biased against Vista.
Well, hopefully Windows 7 isn't over-priced and can lure in new customers, otherwise, why bother with DX11 when DX10 adoption has been pitiful by game developers.

And just so people know, LotRO isn't truly DX10, it just adds a few features of DX10, but isn't no where near a true DX10 game. Look to Crysis to see DX10. LotRO isn't Crysis quality, and isn't a true DX10 game. Most games claiming DX10 aren't true DX10 games.
