I remember hearing late last year (2012) that the native MacOSX client for LOTRO had been released as an open beta. Has anyone tried the OSX client? It runs well for a beta client? In general I don't like being a guinea pig for betas (had miserable experiences in past MMO betas), but this is a game that I'd love to play on my iMac. And if you had been playing it as a registered user (for OSX client), has the company hinted at all when the OSX client will be ready for prime time (out-of-beta) release and also for DLCs to start supporting the OSX client? P.S. -- yeah, the Windows client has been out for several years. I have no plans to install a Windows bootcamp partition just to play this one game, so not really looking forward to anyone telling me that I can opt to play this via Bootcamp. My questions/concerns here are strictly about the state of the Mac client. Addendum: one more question.... does the Mac client require Steam account? I remember that the PC client was distributed via Steam.
