We bring back a bit of the BFME 1 gameplay style by adding Combo hordes, smaller hordes, leveling buildings... and more! We introduce the Create-a-Character System! Also all of the old Factions are being remade, thus making them more fun to play.

There are quite a few factions in this mod...
Arnor (2 sub factions) & Gondor & Rohan & Elves (2 sub factions!) & Dwarves & Isengard & Mordor & Men of the East (2 sub factions!) & Dol Guldur

Hello Fans and Followers!

I will admit, the approximation was an April fool's joke...
Now before you all get upset, we are working on getting an actual release out there!
This release will be on the 24th of April!
This is 3 weeks from now. Now let me explain a bit what happened, and why this took so long to happen.
We had to recode the entire mod due to an unknown crash that occurs in the Alpha 2.0 version.
Then our original plan was to actually release the mod around the 1st of April, but due to some annoying bug (which thankfully I have managed to fix), we were not able to make that personal deadline.
If everything continues as planned, we will have a release on the 24th. The things we have left to do are fairly trivial, so should not cause any delays...

Now obviously I'm not just going to post this without something nice to show to you loyal fans!

So enjoy this nice trailer we made, just for you guys!

So much has changed and happened in the 4 years, I can't thank you all enough for hanging around and showing support for the mod. Thanks to all of you, we are still working on this project, no matter how long it sometimes takes!

To round off this nice little update, I hope we have not upset anyone extremely with the April Fools' joke last Wednesday, and if we have, I'm sorry for that. But look at the bright side, there IS a release coming REALLY soon! I can bet that for whoever might have been upset that they did not see this coming!

The countdown until the release date has begun!
Which is the 24th of April, if you have somehow missed that...

Guys I couldnt understand.Will there be just high elves as a new stuff in this release or will the old factions get some changes(including old heroes skills,some new units etc...) ? Also will we see some stuff in hobbit movie? Maybe not full of them,just some stuff in movie.
Thank you for answer in advance.

High Elves, the Voting System, and the Create-a-Character (remade CAH System). In the future we may work on stuff from the hobbit, since this clearly seems to be what everyone wants :P

Yes, we will work on reimplementing the old changes, along with new ones. But due to having to rewrite the entire mod, we have not gotten around to doing all of it.

Not entirely sure yet, to be honest I still need to make a list of all the changes.
Now on the upside, which I still need to put some work into, I am creating a patching system, which should allow us to release smaller updates (for example hero changes or stuff like that) very easily.
But in order for that to work we need to find a place to host our files (which might cost money, sadly, but that shouldn't be too bad) and all kinds of stuff, but rest assured, I will do whatever I can to get that patching system into place so that whenever we have a change that is worth updating, you guys, the fans will have it as soon as possible! (Which will include stuff like old faction changes)

There will be Gondor, Mordor and Isengard. Rohan was delayed since they don't have a vanilla Bfme2 mode.

We will add several things to this release, but not that much that is currently related to the Hobbit movies. We most likely will do so in the future though, considering the amount of people that want this.

Highest Rated (11 agree) 10/10

After Geel contacted me and provided the fix I gave the mod another chance. At it's current state the mod is doing good. There are some maps that do not support BFME1 and/or 2 mode so they end instantly and few other things that need to be tweaked.

All together, I have decided to give this mod a 10 only because the mod creator is personally taking his time to get the mod working for individuals and I honestly do believe that after few fixes it will be a mod worth playing.

Lowest Rated (2 agree) 3/10

Complicated to install, lacks maps, graphics for certain structures need updates. Multiplayer is far to complicated to be practical.
