People don't understand that there is a reason there was no PvP planned for LotRO: the Free People don't fight amongst themselves in The Lord of the Rings and the "other side" is EVIL. Sauron et al are not just people with a different POV like in WoW or other MMOs with PVP, they are the equivalent of denizens of Hell. Things that Tolkien did not give sympathy/empathy or their own POV in this work. I'm not going to pass judgement on why people would want to play characters with no redeeming value - I've seen plenty of other game titles and know it is popular. However in their license to use this material LotRO was charged with sticking to the feel and theme of the book. PvMP is already pushing that envelope.
