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:
Add the new Gondor skins made by Celeglin
Fix all bugs and glitches in the mod
Balance the factions (with particular attention to the Elves) to make multiplayer more fair and enjoyable
Address the issues laid out it the TEA beta 2 readme file
Add any missing 2-d art to the mod
Develop the Elven AI and add it to all skirmish maps
Increase the difficulty and challenge of the hard AI
Create audio voices for the Elven units/heroes that have no voice files
Include new skirmish maps for the mod
Modify the campaign missions by making them more challenging and to incorporate the new features in TEA:CE
What we will not be doing:
Adding new models and skins that severely stray away from the original Elven Alliance
Deleting or severely modifying units, buildings, and/or heroes

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Elven Alliance: Community Edition. We love games like Battle for Middle-earth that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
