Still don't care, it's a public group. If I want to put my two cents, then I will.
I know it's not on your plans, and I don't know if it's possible to do anyway: I would have loved to see a whole new WotR mode: expanded maps, more factions, scenarios...
If the vanilla game had more potential this mode could have been closed to TATW play style :p
You do realize, it doesn't makes sense at all to have that many factions?
For balance and authenticity sake, it would be only repetitive: Gundabad/ Moria and Angmar are located close to eachother. That means their troop trees will look the same. Ered Luin isn't a separated faction since it recognized Dain's authority from Erebor. Mirkwood/ Lorien and Imladris/Mithlond would be redundant.
Nah only riders :p
Will the campaign (both good and evil) be harder?
like more units, larger armies ?
I'm really curious which are the hidden factions for the future! My dream, would be playing as Rohan, in the Wold map (for instance), against the Men of Rhun (or "Men of the East" if they're not splitted). It would be reminiscent of the Battle of Celebrant, when Rohan was known as Calenardhon.
Rohan has always been a strong faction, with their top notch cavalry and diverse infantry. Eveen in vanilla BFME they were so annoying, spamming waves of peasants and cavalry, which was worse when Ents joined the frey! Especially when those were very resilient against infantry and fire in BFME1).
Great mod! It's really a lot nicer than the vanilla game. It feels closer to games such as the beat'em all released ages ago on ps2. I wish EA had way more time to polish it and kept the game they showed at E3 2004.
Nice fresh updates! Now Gundabad is even more unique, in my opinion it is the best depicted Gundabad faction in BFME mods. The quality of the models for the units as well as the buildings designs are top notch! Not to mention, but there is not much Hobbit trilogy movies' inspiration which makes it even better and eye candy. There is a true lore sake and respect.
It's a reminiscent of Rohan's structures, somehow :) I like this fresh design.
Well... Dunlendings? xD
Another hater downvoted me... Awww jealousy much?
They remind me a lot of the Black Uruks from the ROTK game! Nice work as usual :)
Knights of the Silver Swan! Charge!
The model quality is amazing! Definitely the best Halbarad I've ever seen.
That's a definitive assumption: news factions to be unveiled! I don't mind of the "when" question. The longer they take, the better!
As Treebeard says: "Don't be hasty! Huuuum".
For instance, a focus on news heroes or units :)
Or news maps
Will there be a new article, or preview? I'm just wondering :)
You'll just have to wait guys! It's not a big issue, the longer Rad takes his time to polish the factions, the better it will be.
I know it's not your priority, but could Isengard get Half-orcs some day? I was thinking about a medium armoured infantry using either axes/swords with a round shield or another decent spear unit with a shield for better defense against infantry and archers. Those will be the good compromise of the Uruk pikemen, less efficient to stop cavalry but more effective against infantry.
When it'll be ready...
Get off your high horses. The fact you reacted to this joke proved you're hurt.
It's called having humour, which, obviously, you're lacking.
April Fool got me nooooo
Harad and Rhun have enough diversity to deserve their own faction. Though they often answer to Sauron's calls,they still act on their own. They didn't need the Dark Lord when the Southrons and Variags besieged Umbar, for instance! :)
Fast cavalry and infantry with Harad, support units with Umbar, heavy infantry, powerful diverse cavalry with Rhun, and tough, medium axemen and kataphracts with Variags :); huge monsters with Mumakils
Plagiarism Mod :D
Couldn't handle the heat :p
Can't wait to wreck orc legions with the elites from each sub kingdom :p
Playing with Woods Elves allies, pourring death with their unmatched archery skill while the Dwarves heavy infantry crush the ranks of the enemy!
They will break themselves on the Dwarven's shield wall like water on rock!
I love them! Absolutly astonishing model and skin!
It does justice according Tolkien said about them: grim, heavily armoured, fearless.
With their beards and red cloaks and clothes, they look like shorter but fierce Santa Claus :p
Shut up crybaby!
So, the Dwarves represents a multi cultural faction? There seems to be a lot of elite units, I like that :)
I always envisionned the Ered Luin Dwarves as light armoured, at least in a lesser extent than their Erebor brethrens. In the book, though (The Hobbit), there is a special warrior from the Iron Hills, carrying a two handed mattock, a buckler and a short sword. What about them?
