If you have a VIP or lifetime account - make sure you check the email that it's associated with - particularly the spam mail folder. Standing Stone has sent out emails but since its a different name it might end up in the spam folder (mine did!). The gist of the email is as below:
Thank you for being a VIP subscriber!
We appreciate that you are a Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) VIP!
LOTRO has moved to Standing Stone Games, a newly independent studio staffed by the same people who have been working on LOTRO and DDO for many years (more info on this here). Your game account remains unchanged and you do not need to reenter any of your account or payment information. However, to keep your VIP subscription active you will need log in to LOTRO before March 13, 2017.
We also have a special gift for VIPs that log in before March 13, 2017. Click here to learn more about the Account-wide Steed of the Eldar bonus item, available to VIP players starting on February 6, 2017. Learn about the road to Mordor in the latest Producer's Letter!.
We're grateful for your continued support, and we'll see you in game!
