RotWK Patch 2.02 created by the 2.02 development team with the help of the rotwkreplays.org community!
Greetings Warriors of Middle-Earth! We are pleased to inform you that your long and anticipated wait can now be put behind you as we have officially released the next version of the 2.02 patch: v8.0.0!
IT IS TIME!
After countless hours of testing and coding, we are pleased to announce the release of the long-anticipated patch 2.02 v8.0.0, the largest patch in 2.02 history!
2.02 Main Change Log
One of the primary goals of patch 2.02 is to fine-tune balance as best as possible. The development team has stuck to that goal, and has promised far more balanced game-play for version 8.0.0. Your feedback has been invaluable to us, as it has guided us in developing a more balanced patch.
Say goodbye to the nasty experience award and requirement system, match-ups such as Angmar vs Elves or overpowered Lumber Mills, and hello to newly improved spells such as Untamed Allegiance and Arrow Volley, a new unit tier upgrade system, a useful Gandalf, and so much more!
Another major goal of 2.02 is to bust as many bugs as possible so as to allow players to enjoy smooth game-play. Say goodbye to the nasty overpowered Attack Troll levelling bug, OoS gaming, and the Freezing Rain rain drop bug, and hello to smooth and enjoyable game-play!
Of course, with change comes the risk of error, and the dev team always appreciates feedback. Make sure to check out our Balance Forum for gameplay discussion (and therein, the Bug Report topic for gameplay oddities), and our Technical Support forum for technical issues. Whether favourable or critical, your voice provides essential information in our development!
Creativity and Passion:
A lot of creativity and passion has been put into the development of v8.0.0. Multiple changes and additions have been made to the patch to enhance the gameplay for both our online and offline player base. New Inn units, improved AI and new maps, as well as a plethora of new voice files, music, tooltips, just to name a few.
We are very proud of how far we've come, and we believe the wait was well worth it! Massive thanks to everyone involved, and especially the community for the patience! We know it's been a long wait. The past year and a half saw significant upheaval in the patch-making process. This version has received enormous attention, and we hope that you will see that too!
Now is the time to unleash the dogs of war! Go ahead, download and update your patch, and get playing! If you're new to 2.02 and want to join us online, check out our GameRanger guide.
