Was there any plans to make a evil men/Harad/Rhun faction or any new faction when you still had the old bfme 2 system? (before 4.0)?

Could you answer anyone's question at any time not just during an election?

Of course we answer question anytime, but it usually just isn't possible to give answers, who are more complex or consisting of more than 5 sentences.
The special thing about the question of the day is not that the question will be answered, but that it will be answered detailed and is a small essay.

Also there are bigger questions, which usually would be answered with yes or no, because on ModdB where a post usually disappears after half a day, so it isn't worth spending more than 10 minutes.
You can already see some good questions, of this kind.

I would say that a release date definetly concerns plans for future versions. So, this question won't be answered.

So many questions, choose the one u want to answer:
1-How does the team take the fact that some of you have left recently for various reasons?
2-Will it take longer to finish the demo then?
3-Do you search for new team members ?
4-What are the real plans after all the factions are done?
5-And why the siege update taking so damn long??? kidding. Maybe.
BTW Congrats again for last year, and I m sure this year will be honorific too.
U rules edain team.

We will obviously only give as much real life information as each members agrees with. So this is maybe not the best question.

It was no serious question I wrote it just for fun I cant believe I got an answer for it :D

The original game is inspired by the models from Jackson's LOTR, for this reason I love the fact that you have used many models from Jackson's The Hobbit (especially Dain, Thranduil, Kamul and rams).
In this way the game is inspired more to Jakson's Middle Earth. And I like it!!!

MY QUESTION IS: what is your opinion about the six movies by Peter Jackson?

PS: I loved all of them, even The Hobbit (despite some flaws). They are undoubtedly my favorite movies. :)

Will you ever do a full Arnor faction? like so you can play them on all the maps?

No, the Team has stated they are too similar to Gondor.

Exactly. The number of possible faction that can be implemented is limited by the engine. And Arnor is far too similar too Gondor, to be worth making it an own faction.

Do the members of the team ever play the Edain mod for fun and if so, which member of the team is the best player?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

As Modding takes really much time, we sadly haven't as much time as we'd have liked to play Edain ourselves. But even if it is rare, we play Edain also for fun.
I would say Prinz von Dol Amroth is the best player, as he was a Balance Tester before. Also, Gnomi and Lord of Mordor have played Edain quite much in Multi Player.

Last year, when we had a team meeting, we also played Edain against each other, that was really fun.

What are some impressive things (modding based or otherwise) that the team or individual members of the team has done apart from the Edain Mod?

As far as I know, none of the team members has larger experience with modding other games.

Will Angmar ever be rebalanced? I had a multiplayer with a friend who never played before & lost every time til he used Angmar. I've tested with the AI and it was obvious that a Medium Agmar could crush brutal Gondor and Dwarves That I tested.

Note: The second most expensive hero wielding frostmourne is really overpowered especially aginst other heroes. My experience was him at level 2 killing a level 6 Dain Ironfoot without a struggle.

Love Your work Edain Team, I hope I am not over-exaggerating or being too critical, just bringing my issue to your attention, Thanks!

frostmourne?? LOL, wasn't that in Warcraft?

So far, we haven't got many complaints about Angmar, so we don't have any bigger plans for Angmar at the moment. The only thing would be making some units which are too rarely used more usefull.

Angmar is a faction with really much potential and different and various aspects. Maybe your friend just has the perfect play style for Angmar in contrast to the other factions. Or Angmar has the possibility to counter a strategy of yours easier than other factions.

Playing against the AI honestly doesn't tell much about balance at all.

Greetings Edain team,

This is my question of the day. What RTS's played the biggest inspiration in how you designed the Edain mod in terms of gameplay. As well as what RTS in particular does the team consider to be the best overall in terms of gameplay.

How do you increase command points and what is the maximum you may have? Thanks!

The maximum depends on the game mod. In a normal skirmish, it is 1800 and you can increase it by building and upgrading resource buildings.
