This is a (skirmish) mod created with the intention to bring the feeling of the Lord of the Rings movies into the game Battle for Middle Earth II, and add "realism" through re-balance and re-skinning of the entire game! Our forum can be found here. BETA 4.5 was released in Nov. 2007.

S.E.E. - Director's Cut & the BfME 3 Prank

G’day fans of The Special Extended Edition,
Today’s news article is a unique one, but late. Many fans across the globe mourn the tricksy April Fool’s Joke, announcing the development of The Battle for Middle-earth III, The Battle of the Five Armies. In case you missed it, here is the ‘official’ page.



WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES
THE BATTLE FOR MIDDLE-EARTH 3: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES
FOR XBOX ONE™, PLAYSTATION® 4, and WINDOWS™ PC
THE BELOVED MIDDLE-EARTH REAL TIME STRATEGY GAME RETURNS


bfme3.net

Discuss The Battle for Middle-earth 3 on the official BfME3 page.

Nazgûl's involvement

What fans of The Special Extended Edition can know, behind the scenes of this prank, is that Nazgûl, creator of S.E.E., as in on the joke! Below you may view the concept art featured on the BfME3 page, created by Nazgûl himself. Despair not for BfME3 but rejoice because S.E.E. – Director’s Cut will have these incredible models as part of the Misty Mountains faction. Consider this BfME3 concept art a teaser for what you will see in the coming months. Stay posted for more news.

That is all I can tell you of Nazgûl’s contribution to the prank. View the rest of the BFME3 concept art on the official website. Is it possible that other mods hosted by The Third Age, Revora Forums have concept art featured there?

Build time could indeed be a little shorter (especially for units like archers), but actually, it's not that bad; now, the enemy (even medium-difficult) can't rush immediately at the beginning.

In newer RTS games (and possible the reason the gametype died out) build times are quick and battles are shorter. SEE went for a different speed of game. It didn't just add to the game, it changed it.

Very agreeable but I believe it is adjustable to. From what I can think of, the build time for meat shields are 45 to 50 seconds and I can't remember the time for them on the vanilla.

Hmm...weird. It works perfectly for me. What Internet Browser you are using? Try to update your IE to the latest version or try alternative browsers like Firefox. I had similar problems with gamefront some time ago and I solved it by using alternative browser.

Hope that this will help you.

Just checked the revora page! Im very glad that you did not abandoned this awesome mod! That would be a shame because this mod have a lot of potential! Wish you good luck in development!

And about the Mumakill. It do not seem right that Trolls can destroy buildings pretty quickly ( mainly attack troll after upgrade ) while the Mumakill which is four times bigger have a big problem to damage even the most weakest building in the game ( farm ).

Other then that I absolutely love this mod and cant wait for the Directors Cut :D
