I'm just a gamer who blogs and makes let's plays. Nothing special about that, really. I do enjoy a good mod, though.
Mod Review on Mar 24th, 2014
For a strategy game mod, Divide & Conquer does something that strategy is often weak at: immersion. By separating out various factions from the larger ones of Third Age: Total War, D&C adds new challenges and often makes more sense. For example, the distance between Imladris (Rivendell) and Lindon often made their combination into the same faction a little odd. Now they are each their own faction with their own objectives.
At this juncture, the mod seems a bit buggy (my own games have seen what appear to be irritating oddities) and it's unclear if some of the weaker factions are properly balanced or have achievable goals. But the beta is definitely a solid game and worth a try.
