From the comments thread, Amlug laid off:
From the lotto forums thread, rumor of
65 laid off from full time staff
Last few weeks 25 from temp staff
I'm sure there's more news and details out there, but this can't be good for one of our favorite games.
This is concerning news. Hopefully they are still able to keep up with content for Lotro =(
