It's still hard for me to let go. The game is not the same to me, nor as fun. I keep playing because I think turbine has done a great job creating Tolkien's world, and I was waiting for something like this in a video game since the first time I played Dragon Warrior as a kid.
It's like a bad break up with the first person you ever really loved. Hard to forget, and hard to get past sometimes. Hopefully something will spark in me again. I used to even love grinding, and now sometimes I go to log in and decide to do something else instead. For anyone who may happen to pass through this looking up memories, I miss all of you that I haven't seen. This was my first MMO "family." This group meant a lot to me.
