    Poor description; use these BB Codes to help you improve it. Also the terrain looks very plain..

    For fuck sake the one thing that should be done in this damn map is to nerf the elven rangers range!!! 1000 Is too much to bear even for the best damn defenses >.> . And in my opinion it's just stupid that the rangers have more range then a ballista/tower <.< .

    Why, I changed it in version 1.1? Now is 850. Or should I decrease it even more? They're supposed to be good archers...

    Somethings that I think would be better if you do.
    -Building's size bigger
    -Add a gate system. Open or close with lever.
    -Improve terrain
    -Leader becomes a hero........
    -A no food mode.
    -Bigger bases and each base have 2entrance for possible killing.
    -Maybe you can think of adding rings.
    -Free 2house for each player at the bottom of the map so they gets basic income and will not cry for gold when they build wrong.
    That's all... 3/5 Hope to see more.

    Well Comrade.Rat I think it should be possible for a tower or a ballista to hit it at the same range. Like if the tower range is 700 (Im not really shure how much it is) the rangers range should also be 700. But every other rangers Range to be like 500 or something. Oh and i was wondering (From other LOTR builder maps) can you add doors or something?

    I agree. I'll either decrease elven archer's attack range or i'll increase tower and siege machine's range.

    -Which buildings do you mean?
    -Personally I dont like gates. People will build their own gate if they want one. But....if I notice people REALLY do like gate system, then i'll have to obey....
    -Terrain will be slowly improved from time to time.
    -Why should a leader become a hero? You have 1 hero that you can use in battles, Leaders are supposed to be hidden somewhere or loaded inside fortresses. Please explain why you think Leaders must be Heroes?
    -I do not agree that. Sorry, but game lags like hell if each player trains more than 100 units.
    -Indeed, some bases a little tiny, but I must also follow Tolkien's map. Some places are meant to be small....About the 2 entrances, I'll think about it.
    -Rings, yes. I was just thinking about that. But which ones? Nazguls have the Nine. Four of Seven Sauron took. The other three are destroyed by dragons. So only the Three Rings of Power left. But one is held by Galadriel, second one is in Gandalf and third - in Elrond. But I might add an option lesser Rings to be able to be found.
    -I'll do that.

    Well... Every building's size. So it looked more realistic.
    Leader suppose to be hidden sounds really funny. But its your choice, anyway I think you can give some auras to leaders. Because when the leader are there soldiers fight hard.
    For the no food mode....... Its for fun. Well. Its your choice.
    Also the map looks a little small. Try to expand it!

    Okay ,I'll increase building's size. I will add aura to leaders. About the food, yes, I know some people like to make large army, but first, controlling such an army is hard, and second, as I told before, it will lag as hell.
    About the size map....It's nearly at it's maximum. I can expand it little more, but...It's already Epic...

    I edited it becouse Revived version was screwed, and Revived version is hosted most, so I tried (and I think I did) to make the game more balanced, mainly fixing that massive attack thing from the Revived version.
    And btw at the trigger comment of Revived version it was said that editing is permitted as long as I give credits to original creators. And I do.
