Welcome fans of BFME and LOTR
On this page i will introduce you with my mod for Rise of the Witch-King, on which i worked on for the past 2 years
Before playing this mod, be sure that you have patched the game with 2.01 version
The Battles of the Third Age (BOTTA) mod is a mod for The Battle for Middle Earth - The Rise of the Witch King.
This mod tends to follow the lore of books and films along with bringing the realism in the gameplay, and generally concentrates of the happenings in the Third age of Middle Earth, so you will see almost every character that fought in the battles of this age, for example: Bolg, Beorn, Imrahil, Shagrat etc.
Lots of the balance from the vanilla games is fixed so be free to expect some new gameplay styles and new strategies and tactics that you will use in order to destroy your enemy.To do that, you will get help from the new Heroes and Units and their new Powers that are in this mod.
No rush tactics anymore, AI wont charge on you in the first 5 minutes, giving you no time to expand your camp and upgrade your economy. Gameplay now focuses on defense, rather than offense like in the vanilla game. So you will have a lot of time for preparing for battle, upgrading your units and level up your Heroes.

General changes:
- Stronger Heroes
- Stronger Structures
- New Game balance
- New Heroes, Units, Buildings and Powers
- New and improved Textures for every single Hero or Unit in the game
- Smaller battalions
- New Upgrades
- New Siege system
- New Upgrade systems
- New sounds and effects

NOTE:

- War of the Ring mode is buggy

Stay tuned for more news and screenshots

Hello everyone !

This mod is amazing. I just have a little problem and I was wondering if anyone can help.

I can't upgrade my units. I buy the upgrades in the armory (blades, fire arrows etc.) but I can't buy them with my units. The only upgrade that is correctly working is the Banner Carrier.

Does anyone know why it is happening ?

Thank you all !

It is not possible upgrading units everywhere on thw battlefield as in the vanilla game. Send your battalions nearby the forge and try again ;).

Thank you very much ! It worked ! However for some units it's impossible. For example for the archers of Gondor, I can't buy them fire arrows because it's bought in the archery and not in the forge. So whenever I put them next to the archery or the forge I can't upgrade them !
But thank you for your help you changed my gameplay ahahah

Gondor archers need another bow upgrade from the archery before it's possible to upgrade them with fire arrows.

Which can not be blamed on him, after he has put himself in a spot with his announcement three months ago. ;)
