The Dwarf Holds (TDH for short) is a modification for the Battle for Middle-earth, a real time strategy game by EA. We're adding a Dwarven faction based on Erebor, while also tweaking and adding a couple of things to the four original factions to get them up to the level of our new faction. This mod is being developed by Nertea, Matias (Dorian_Gray), M@tt, mike_ and Lauri. The mod is hosted by The 3rd Age, a division of Revora, the creative community.

Presenting the return of BFME online multiplayer! Enjoy playing on an integrated server once again!

Posted by MathijsRevora on Sep 21st, 2013



Hello everyone! Today is a big day for the BFME community.
It's been almost three years since EA shut down BFME's servers,
forcing the community to start using third party software to get their BFME multiplayer experience.
It was no longer possible to simply log into the game's online server and play.

Today, all of this will change.

We at The 3rd Age BFME community have been hard at work developing T3A:Online, a custom BFME online server, and a launcher (client) that will allow you to once again log into the game's online mode and play.
All you need to do is download and install the client, create an online account over at our forums, and you'll be all set to log into the servers.

To read more about T3A:Online, read our official announcement topic:

To download the client and view instructions, visit our website:

Happy playing!

What if you already modded your BfME1 install? Do you have to reinstall, repatch (up to 1.05) and remod it?
