RJ-RotWK brings the best from each title in the BFME series by EA. As a mod for Rise of the Witch-King, at it's heart it brings 3 new factions to the game. Men of the West has been broken into Gondor and Rohan, with new heroes, units, powers, and more. Arnor has also been fleshed out to be a unique faction with a mix of Men and Elves and more. Men of the East and Mordor has also been split, with Men of the East made up from two smaller sub-factions of Rhun and Harad. The Elves are now made up from three smaller sub-factions of Rivendell, Lothlorien, and Mirkwood. In total, over 70+ new units/heroes/structures and more have been added. Over 20 new maps are included, and much more.

You do not link the shortcut to the folder! you leave the shortcut exactly how it was, that is unless you installed the game on a different hardrive (such as D:or E:)

THANK YOU robnkarla! This is the best mod I've ever downloaded. No joke. Signed up just to say 'good on ya'. Did 3 player LAN last night -no issues, no bugs, just great. We now await eagerly for the finnished (or semi-finnished) product. Mod of the year when done? Your faithfulness to the LOTR authenticity would make Tolkien smile (or smirk). Keep it up and keep working through the night! Thats an order!! ;-)

Whenever i download this mod it is not into a folder, i have tried like 2 times now and still hasn't worked, and i don't know where to put it. I'm using windows vista on some sort of laptop that runs the game smoothly at low quality graphics.

when it started working, well, i though it would crash or show an error but it didnt (2 mods i tried did it and sometimes ppl get a bit annoyed)
well, I started a skirmist and i got surprised when I saw arnor. i decided to try that one out. In the game I was surprised and really interested in discovering what was new and, well, the mod is awsome :) best mod I ever played. The only thing i though strange and I did laugh a bit was when I saw the hero of arnor with clothes because i though he had armor on. but the mod is brutal! from 1 to 20 i give it 20 ;)

TRuly excelent mod in everyway

me and a couple friends did some testing around tho

we found that gondor is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
to powerful

one of my m8s did an ithelin ranger spam and even an elven sunflare didnt even kill the rangers in fact all it did was kill the baner cariers also knites of dol amroth are just a bit tooo strong I literaly had sauron and he died to them tower guards are extremely strong too the heroes also for all the factions the seige wepons are just abit tooo strong

also found a bug in war of ring mode where isengard cant get wulf or ugluk and for gondor whne playing war of ring mode you can buy damrod but not in scirmish ( i am telling allot of bad news :( )
in war of ring mode you cant get the 2 new custom hero style dwarves and one of the arcehrs heros but you can in skirmish

btw love the mounted gothmog very nice adition

also i find that the mote hero lorgan is just abit too weak he acatually loses to wites 1vs1

also the rock golum sumon form one of the blue wizards suffers knockback from balrog and shade of wolf

(im bearer of bad news)

when archers fire they can be really inacurate at times

THX for that mod.
i love how many different mordor orc models there are!
I hope you can do that to other units too (goblins,Uruks,Angmar and it would be cool if for example gondor soldiers would look different too)
i love the "new war of the ring" i hope you soon can manage that there are no "placeholder" ("near Harad") anymore.
If you play MotE in War of the Ring there is an problem!
you have to select your race (Rhun or Harad) at the beginning of the round in your fortress. but in War of the rings you don´t have a fortress on each map, so you have to pay the double to all Units and buildings!
hopefully 1.07 is coming soon and i hope it minds some of my notes
