This total-conversion mod takes the Battle for Middle-earth II to the Fifth Century BCE, replacing the original content with two new, fully-fledged factions: Sparta and Athens. Completely new content, strategies and more awaits you. This project is brought to you by Kwen, Matias, Lauri, njm1983, Glaeken and Mike who are hosted at the3rdage.net, a division of revora.net.
The WIP Phalanx Formation the Hoplites can go in or out of. When in Phalanx they recieve a large bonus to defence, a small bonus to attack while sacrificing speed.
For everyone about to complain that this isn't looking anywhere near a real Phalanx Formation, let me give you a head-start:
This is all subject to change, but right now it looks better than it did before. And unfortunatly, there is no flawless way to have the gradual "hill" of spears either in the game, so all will have to point straight forward. I'm going to see about the possibilities about changing this in the future, but I can't promise anything.
