It would theoretically be possible, but there are a lot of other problems. I will tell you two of them:
- We would need much more upgrades for the buildings, as we can't copy everything 1:1 and this would make the computer much more instable, therefore causing more gamecrashes.
- You can't make a balance which fits to both styles - either we would make the balance completely different (which would need much more units/buildings/upgrades, therefore causing much more crashes) or just make the balance for one type and ignore the balance for the other type. (afaik RJ made the second) Then all the fans of one mode would cry all the time, as they can't play a balanced version.

RJ has some completely different approaches and other priorities - therefore it works there, but it wouldn't for us.

Just play a normal map with fortresses in 4.0 then. :P
But as said: The maximum amount of players is 8, we can't add more.

The AI can cheat a lot, otherwise it won't work with our concepts. Either it cheats or it wouldn't build those buildings at all. You (as a player) need to level up Sauron. The AI doesn't need this.

The best way imo is to build Haldir and as many Galadhrim as possible.^^
If you combine this with the spearpower of Eomer and Eowyn, most heroes will die reaaaaally fast.

No, it won't. The problem is that the game always crashes when the AI brings the ring to its ring hero. That's why we have deactivated the usage of the ring for the AI - better an AI which doesn't use the ring than an AI which crashes the game when it tries to.^^

Some AIs are stronger than other - for example the Isengard AI is reaaaaally strong, while the Imladris AI is okay, but not as strong as Isengard.

Most of them yes. The AI works with every faction (but some are stronger and some weaker) and the AI also builds nearly all troups and uses some spells. :)

As I've said we worked hard on the english version for edain mod 4.0. At th beginning we wanted to translate 3.8.1, but after starting the work on 4.0 we realized that we would need about 1-2 years to translate it and afterwards we wouldn't be able to use 90% of the work, therefore we have decided to start translating version 4.0, while modding on it - that way we can give you an english version directly at the release.
I can understand that it is sad for you, as you can't speak german, but we also don't have endless time.^^ I have copied the whole text files in microsoft word a few months ago and the amount was really huge. The length of the file was about 1000 pages. You can't translate this within a few weeks, if you also have other things to do.^^

It's true that we haven't released anything this year, but as you might see we are coming closer to a release of the next version with every update. You don't have to vote for us, as I can understand your reasons. Hopefully the next version will persuade you to vote for us in the next year(s). :)

The english translation will be available with version 4.0. As said nearly everything is translated, but as the tesxts of 4.0 are very different to the texts of 3.81. Therefore we can't release the version for 3.81. But 4.0 will be available in english and german. For 3.81 there is a fanamde translation with google translator, which helps a lot of people to understand the mod.

There is an unofficial english version, which has used google translator. But to get an official (and good translated^^) version you have to wait until version 4.0.

Angmar is one of the strongest factions, you just have to play it correctly. Angmar's starting units have very low health, but a high damage output. Therefore you have to use hit and run a lot in the EG. But you can destroy most enemies by doing this. Additionally Sauron has one weakness: Archers. Just don't use him against tons of archers, he is incredible strong against all types of melee units, but is countered by archers. That's why he was killed by the towers.

I wouldn't say that the witchking is the second most powerful being. What about Gandalf or Galadriel? They are at least equal to the witchking.

LOTRO is also just another interpretation. They didn't just crush arnor - it took them many years to destroy Arnor and only one year later they were crushed by Gondor.^^

Isengard is a very strong race, that's true, but you can win against them (when the AI plays them^^).
For me heroes, catapults and a lot of troups are helping. In the current version archers are also very strong in the mid to lategame, therefore you can spam them and they will kill most units before they are even attacking.

Build the necromancer. If you kill enemies with the nazgul/mouth the necromancer (aka Sauron) will get the experience - when he levels up the heroes will also become stronger and get their abilities.

Thank you very much. This shows how few you know about modding. It's just a hobby and we are reworking every single map, every faction, the whole balance... We are more or less creating a whole new game. This takes a lot of time.

It's the texture of the movies. We are using picutres of the movies and the books which show some more of weta workshops art. (and of course we look at their website all the time)
As most mods copy the textues of the movies, you have probably seen similar textures, as we all try to be as close to the movie as possible.^^

We don't have good photos of most troups. Most of our new units/heroes would not have fitting pictures. Therefore we would need to give them computer-made pictures. But we try to make all pictures with the same style, as it would look a bit funny if have of the units have photos and the other half computer-made pictures. That's why we have decided to give all of them drawings.

Leute, die unsere Mod nicht mögen gab es immer und wird es immer geben, sowas lässt sich nicht ändern.^^ Ich persönlich finde es auch immer genauso interessant zu erfahren wieso Leute unsere Mod nicht mögen, wie zu erfahren, wieso Leute unsere Mod mögen. Schade finde ich es nur, wenn es dann heißt, dass "einfach alles scheiße" ist ohne Begründungen. Wenn man das Gefühl hat, dass Leute einfach nur kritisieren, weil sie es können, ohne sich vorher Gedanken darüber zu machen, geht es einem häufig nicht so gut damit, aber es gibt ja zum Glück genügend Leute, die uns immer wieder Mut machen und zeigen, dass es ihnen Spaß macht unsere Mod zu spielen. Allein deswegen lassen wir uns nicht so einfach entmutigen, keine Angst.:D
Es freut mich aber immer auch von den "stillen" Fans zu hören, die unsere Mod genießen. :) Du kannst gerne auch häufiger was schreiben und uns deine Meinung geben - dadurch wissen wir immer nochmal mehr, was der Mehrheit gefällt. :)

Eine Sache zum Multiplayer noch:
Gerade erst vor ein paar Wochen gab es ein Edainturnier, wo sämtliche Spiele auch live gestreamt wurden. Die Replays dazu findest du auf twitch oder auch auf youtube. (weiß nicht, ob sie dort bereits hochgeladen sind)
Es gibt also durchaus einen aktiven Multiplayer in der Edaincommunity und genügend Leute. :)

Zusätzlich solltest du dir die Frage stellen, ob wir wirklich "Müll" reinpacken. Die Edaincommunity ist in den letzten Versionen immer weiter gewachsen, obwohl keine weiteren Versionen mehr verkauft werden. Dementsprechend scheinen wir etwas richtig zu machen, vielleicht gefällt ja der Mehrheit der Community der "Müll", den wir einbauen. Ebenso sind 90% unserer Fans SP-Spieler, von daher kann man nicht sagen, dass alles vom MP abhängt. Wir haben eine sehr große Community, viele Downloads und mit jeder neuen Version wurde die Community größer und die Anzahl der Downloads hat sich auch erhöht. Von daher scheint das meiste ein persönliches Problem von dir zu sein, jedoch scheinen die meisten da anderer Meinung zu sein als du.^^

Bugs wurden schon immer ernst genommen und auch so weit wie möglich gefixt. Das ist auch der Grund, warum die Releases länger brauchen und wir meist noche in Fixupdate hinterherschieben. Jedoch ist es für eine kleine Gruppe, die das ganze auf freiwilliger Basis macht unmöglich sämtliche Bugs zu finden - vor lauter Sachen übersieht man immer wieder etwas, teilweise auch offensichtliche Dinge. Dies ist schwer zu erklären, wenn der andere noch nicht etwas in Richtung Computerprogrammierung gemacht hat. Wir versuchen schon immer die Anzahl Bugs möglichst klein zu halten. Ganz und gar ausmerzen lassen sie sich jedoch nie. Und es wurden noch nie Leute niedergemacht, weil sie Bugs angesprochen hast. Ich weiß da wirklich nicht wovon du redest. Gerade bei Bugs sind wir immer froh, wenn wir Feedback bekommen, sodass wir das für die nächste Version in Ordnung bringen können.
Vielleicht hast du dir Mal die ganzen Updates für die nächste Version durchgelesen - ich nehme jedoch einfach Mal an nicht. Schon seit einigen Versionen wird der Inhalt mehr verändert, als einfach erweitert. Bei großen Armeen ist der Computer langsamer, weil die Engine keine Mehrkernunterstützung hat, was sich auch nicht lösen lässt. Durch die erhöhten Details verbraucht Edain mehr Leistung, als die Grundversion, das ist auch richtig, jedoch stört das die meisten im SP nicht und im MP kommt es nur bei Mordor dazu, dass man das so extrem merkt. (zumindest wenn man ernsthaft spielt)
