As announced before, Turbine has taken over the European LOTRO service from Codemasters starting June 1st, 2011. All servers have been transferred to the Turbine serverpark in Boston and are up and running. Nothing has been chaged to your toons, items and social structures (kinships etc). All EU-players need to transfer their accounts from Codemasters to Turbine. Although the transition period is whispered to be "a few months" it is advised to transfer your accounts asap.
How to migrate?
