This map is very large. The men of Gondor (Archons) need to hold back Sauron (Undead), who is very powerful, or all is lost. The men of Rohan (Humans), need to contend with Saruman (Orcs), because he threatens them. The halflings and goblins can create their own story. The Elves should just act as peacekeepers. If anyone plays as the Dwarves, use Balin to retake Moria (which i built sweetly). Thanks!
I have been waiting for a Middle Earth map for quite some time and since I am to lazy to do one myself I am happy you made one and it is quite fun too. However I do miss certain characters from Lord of the Rings (since some are in why not others?). I am not sure I like those dragons up north either in one of my games the fire one all but took out the goblins on his own.
Hmm, hard one. Does not seem to be very well balanced but on the other hand I am not sure a Middle Earth map should be. I have played the map a few times and in every game the dwarves seem to be too strong and maybe the goblins a tad weak.
Well, it is Middle Earth what more to say? No big surprises.
Map Design: 4
Good adaption of Middle Earth, Moria is big and nice but a little overfilled with cities.
Not much here, but is there any need? Hard one to rate.
Don't take my ratings to seriously since I am not a very good player, I am however a fan of bot AoW1 and 2 and know what I like.
I will hold my judgement for awhile yet but I have to say that I do belive AoW 1 is better suited for Middle Earth maps, but I would love for someone to prove me wrong!
