    So the Fellowship is involved? Will they be a 9 man hero squad like in Battle for Middle Earth?

    Looks cool. Have you played Battle for middle earth, made by Turin if i remember correctly? Either way it was the main map in the spawn based branch of wc3 custom games for a long time, and I allways loved the units of the isengard faction there.

    They had these pikemen with a rather awesome bonus vs ents or cavallry, which forced the opposing forced to really think about which units were engaging, and not just a-click forward. I really liked that.

    One thing that i dont hope to see in this map is an op elven faction when it comes to ranged combat. While perhaps Lore accurate (?) I feel so many of these custom maps tire me for that reason alone.

    They are only a 4 squad starting force but have some powerful heroes: Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli. Merry and Pippin start with Ents and Sam and Frodo arnt in the game as they are out there in the Wilderness somewhere.

    But there will be an event for Fellowship though which enables them to use some Gondor reinforcements.

    BFME is the most popular spawn based map right now and its one of my favourites even though I don't like spawn maps I still play it. I was thinking of including a damage system similiar to ROAR where pikesoldiers get a bonus when against large unit types as your right it would add a nice tactical touch.

    Well the elves in this map will have strengths as youd expect so they will specialise in ranged but also healing magic as per their lore, but I'm hoping they won't be OP!

    Anyway this map is actually on hold for afew months now as I concentrate on updating LTF so might be awhile before theres any activity here.
