If you've been frustrated by attempts to log into Lord of the Rings Online
or Dungeons and Dragons Online
this morning, you're not alone. Turbine
is experiencing some sort of technical issue that began on Sunday and continues to prevent customers from connecting to the live service for both free-to-play fantasy MMOs.
The LotRO Twitter account
mentions that Turbine is working with "our vendors to resolve the issue," but it gives no indication as to the nature of the problem nor an ETA for any resumption of services. We've contacted Turbine seeking comment and will update this post if any is forthcoming.
[Update: All Turbine servers are now back online!]
[Thanks to everyone who tipped us!]
