I highly doubt Tolkin would approve of "Fire orcs" or the many other things Turbine has invented, but what the hell he's dead and his decendants are getting ritch so why NOT let Turbine rape the lore left right and center then make the hilarious claim that they stay true to it?

Lore cencessions have been made, but it's nowhere near what you're saying. For that type of treatment to Tolkien's lore, you should look up the new Conquest game, now THAT is a lore rape. As far as IP-driven MMO's go, Turbine has done a pretty awesome job. If you want to see a true MMO lore rape look no further than Warhammer Online. Mythic made a mockery of it.

At least it is not as bad as what SOE did with SWG.

Of course what they do or do not do to the lore matters nothing to those that do not play.

Its a fun game and Moria did some really fun and innovative stuff.
