So as we all know EA is shutting down this game. 
I feel sad. 
This was the first game i ever played online on a console, the game where i met alot of great people on that i still call my friends till this day. 
I must have played this game for over a 1000 hours across 4 years. It was such a great game. 
Last time i jumped into it, yes it was a little shady after playing so much starcraft2 but it was still LOTR. 
My LOTR, the one i will never forget.

Played this game so damn much on the PC. I still have fond memories of going uber turtle as the elves against 3 allied brutal AI goblins and winning (post game screen showed that I had killed just under 11,000 goblins in 2 hours). 
Such a good game.

Wow! That makes me sad. I guess I'd never play this game again in a post-SC2 world... but I still think LOTRBFMEII was the best RTS ever made for a console. Also, it had the greatest acronym. 
The summer after this game came out I probably played it a few hours a day for almost two months, and almost went insane. My Tower Guard wall + Boromir's Horn of Gondor stun + Ithilian ranger volley strategy was so awesome. Also, the 3 vs 1 castle matches were the most epic multiplayer matches I've ever played (seeing as one game could go on for like 6 hours).

I've got it sitting on my shelf, stolen from my roommate. I always planed to play it someday... but I guess that's never going to happen.

I looked under my bed and discovered that I do indeed have this game for the xbox 
I remember liking it but I think I never really got into it that much

Are you asking whether EA's shutting down the multiplayer on the PC too? If that's what you're asking, then yeah. Their license with Middle-earth Enterprises (formerly Tolkien Enterprises) expired, "forcing us to shutdown the online services for The Lord of the Rings™ games". Fun.
