Back in 2006, Celeglin released the second beta version of The Elven Alliance (TEA). While the mod was both popular and successful (e.g., made the top 100 mod of the year list in 2006), there was still a lot of unfinished work that needed to be completed. Unfortunately, Celeglin became busy with other things, and he never had the opportunity to continue work on his mod. As such, many fans were disappointed that the mod was never fully completed. After much discussion, the T3A staff and community decided that it was their responsibility to finish TEA and address any balance and bug issues contained in beta 0.9. Due to being unable to contact Celeglin and perhaps straying from his original intentions, the mod was given a new subtitle as to not confuse who the author was of the modified version. The new project became known as The Elven Alliance:Community Edition (TEA:CE).

TEA:CE has just released it's fourth version (version 1.3). The project has evolved over the years, but the original purpose and design has remained the same. Below is some information about what the mod project hopes to accomplish when finished.

The intentions and goals in this edition:

  1. Add the new Gondor skins made by Celeglin
  2. Fix all bugs and glitches in the mod
  3. Balance the factions (with particular attention to the Elves) to make multiplayer more fair and enjoyable
  4. Address the issues laid out it the TEA beta 2 readme file
  5. Add any missing 2-d art to the mod
  6. Develop the Elven AI and add it to all skirmish maps
  7. Increase the difficulty and challenge of the hard AI
  8. Create audio voices for the Elven units/heroes that have no voice files
  9. Include new skirmish maps for the mod
  10. Modify the campaign missions by making them more challenging and to incorporate the new features in TEA:CE

What we will not be doing:

  1. Adding new models and skins that severely stray away from the original Elven Alliance
  2. Deleting or severely modifying units, buildings, and/or heroes

I really do love this Mod, however, I lost the battle of Minas Tirirth on Good Campaign as a result of my army from Osgiliath wasn't all there. Instead of having 165 Archers, 105 Soldiers and 25 Knights, I had 40 Archers and 25 Knights. If you could please explain I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Best mod for BFME 1 (and maybe BFME2 as well). Especially Galadriel is badass! Truly Noldorin princess. :o)
