Viva la república!
Will be an Old Forest map?? I think only must be Tom Bombadil and Goldberry playables on this map. In the book Tom Bombadil don't have any interest in the ring and I think that wars are also not in their interest that's why I don't think it should be like a spell because he is more comfortable at home and picking lilies for his wife :P
Congratulations Edain Team, the new maps are spectaculars!!
Of course the work is AWESOME!! Congratulations Team!!
The walls of Mordor ... sigh!
I don't know if you read the Tolkien books or only see the movies. The books tell us about the worms of the North, maybe a creature created by Morgoth in the first age. Why not a earthworm to open the secret tunnel on Anband and Utumno? In the game could open new ways to take the enemy by surprise (like the Goblins and Dwarfs tunnels). It's true that are similar to the Dune Worms.
The Trolls without legs? personally I don't disgusting the idea. I can´t imagine Sauron sending home his mutilated troops to make veterans parades waving banners with the Red Eye. I think is better make them fight until the death... or convert them in food for the troops ;)
The only thing ridiculous of the film is the absurd love history between Kili and Tauriel... and some exaggerated action scenes. But the films are not bad.
Sorry but I don't saw Baby orcs.
Yesterday I saw "The battle of the five Armies" and the new units that appears are awesome!! I guess all will be Including in 4.0 version ¿¿?? Only I hope somebody release a new version of the films without the ridiculous love story between a Dwarf and an Elf.
Can somebody erase this comments? I don't wont to generate confusion. Thanks!
This new is confusing. I'm not sure but I think the cinematographic rights of The Silmarillion belong to the Tolkien family. Peter Jackson currently is 53 years old then when he finish all the movies he will be 125 years old. It's a little weird this :S
... And here is the biggest, amazing, awesome and ******* new!!!!!!!! Eyeofthetiber.com
Enjoy The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition scenes. Greetings!!
Ok! The Map I say is Ered Luin, for two players.
No is Erebor, there is another map. I can't see now the name but tomorrow I tell you. Cheers!
Will be available Thranduil's fortress inside the mountain?? There is a map with a Dwarves fortress which you can open and close the principal door (sorry, I don't remember now the name). Would it be nice something like this, what do you think?
The Mirkwood faction will be available with Silvan Elves on foot; less stronger but speedy and with lighter equipment ??
The fortress of the Mirkwood is impressive, perhaps you could design as the top of a tree with leaves, it appear naked columns and supposed are trees made in stone. To avoid bothering the vision map could be transparent?
Hi Edain Team!!
Will be available Thranduil's fortress inside the mountain?? There is a map with a Dwarves fortress which you can open and close the principal door (sorry I don't remember now the name). It Would be nice something like this, what do you think?
The new characters and factions are amazing, congratulations!!
In the case of good factions: Only the elves are strong enogh and wise because they are the first born and the have the ability to modify and make their lands more beautiful. The other factions (Men and Dwarfs) they could't modify his lands.
Exactly! That would be great. I think it would be better and visually more realistic.
Hi Edain Team!
I wonder if it would be possible to extend the ring of land belonging to each faction. Let me explain:
If for example I play with Isengard on map with green grass within my walls I'll have black terrain corrupted but just outside my walls have green grass. It is a very sharp contrast especially in contrast to the evil factions. The ring of corrupt land should extend beyond the walls of the faction and give a little edge gradient so it is not too much contrast. If I play with Lorien on a map of Harad, I have a green ring and on the edge start the wilderness ?? It's a little strange, don't you think so?? It would be possible to change this??
I completely agree. The absurd scenes invented as silly love story of a dwarf and an elf and so exaggerated action is comic and kill the essence of the books.
Too bad!! so much trouble to take out. Maybe in the future you might choose as a choice of game or only a few maps, which really look great both day and night? Fortunately you are doing the best game about The Lord of the Rings and that's what's important. Keep it up !!
Hello Edain Team!
It would be possible to include a system for maps to be day and night: 30 minutes of Day and 15 minutes of night for example. This would affect the game strategically during the game giving more advantage to some units in the day or night.
For example: The Trolls could only attack at night or would become stone and orcs would lose effectiveness of day but at night it would be stronger. The Uruk Hais could have the same effectiveness in day and night like elves.
Factions of men would lose effectiveness overnight and would be stronger during the day. I think Dwarves could be good for day and night because they live and work in mines and they are accustomed to the dark.
In the maps of the dark earth as Mordor, Angmar, Dol Guldur, etc. Units like orcs not be affected by the sun because is not visible by the cloudy sky. Also enemy units should have the ability to use a spell darkening day to can use their units, either through dark clouds or as in the case of the Goblins by Bats.
I think this would far more likely to play and would do it more varied with many possibilities.
It's just an idea, I hope you like it.
Exactly, that's my idea!
On the fast games no problem. A player can select Imladris, and though not perform the "Council" shall not affect the gameplay. Perform the council is only an option not an objective in the game.
I already thought that this idea is nothing new but I think it might be okay without affecting the spirit of faction. The idea I conceive it as a possibility but it is not easy to get; esperiencia have to get, money, etc ... just when the game is very advanced and if the player wishes can choose this option.
For Rivendell and Isengard vs Gondor-Lothlorien (poor Rivendell) effectively Imladris could not summon units from other factions but still have their own heroes (Elrond, Glorfindel, Gildor, Arwen, Erestor ...)
And here I go once more!
This is an idea I've been thinking some time ago and I think it could also work very well.
The matter concerns Imladris.
As we all know in Rivendell some wisest characters of Middle Earth met to discuss some sort of issue that affected not only the Elves, also to the other peoples of Middle Earth.
Two of them were very famous: The White Council where Elrond, Gandalf, Galadriel, Radagast and Saruman came together to fight the Necromancer of Dol Guldur and the Council of Elrond in which several prominent members of various races gathered from the earth half to decide the fate of the ring.
It would be good idea if Imladris faction may permanently summon several heroes of different races when you have reached a certain level or using some spell. Perhaps Elrond at level 10 could use a skill applied to a building convene several heroes of Middle-earth that the player could choose, giving us the ability to choose the members of the White Council, The Council of Elrond (The Fellowship of the Ring) , or any mixture of characters. The heroes would play with Imladris permanently and could convene only once per game. If one of the group members die will not be able to revive.
The only hero that can be revived will be Gandalf, he would return to life as Gandalf the White.
If Imladris faces a faction of good, such as Dwarves, Imladris could not summon any dwarf hero since they always fight on the side of his first home faction.
In case of face Gondor, Aragorn always fought first in the side of Imladris. The same would happen with Isengard; Saruman will fight on the side of Isengard.
This ability would give us the ability to recruit 5 Istari :)))
On the number of members of the group: The player could choose between 5 and 9, depending on the money available to spend. 5=50.000 and 9=90.000 for example :P
Hope you like the idea and I wish it's possible to perform.
The map of Minas Ithil would be more successful if you play with the dwarfs. The idea would be to have two maps: One for good factions and other for the evil factions.
Imagine the lonely mountain as kingdom of Erebor and the same map as home of Smaug ;)
I'm glad you like the idea. I wish can be possible in a next future. Two separate maps will be great too !!!
I think it would be a great idea if in the case of some of the fortress that throughout the history of Middle Earth have changed of band, the player could choose between the two types of fortresses.
For example:If I play with Mordor and I choose the map of Minas Morgul, I effectively play in Minas Morgul but if I play as Gondor on that same map we will have control of the city of Minas Ithil. Hope you like the idea.
