The good and evil forces have gathered in an extended battlefield including all the countries of this alternative middle-earth (I made some inventions in order to use units). At the beginning, Boromir will negociate with Mouth of Sauron, and as the negociation fails, mordor and gondor will fight. As ALL the nations of ME come and die in the battlefield, other come to help. Although this is a normal multiplayer map, you don't have to destroy enemy's fortress to win (there are no fortress in this game) but to anihilate enemy's forces on land, air and sea. There are many way to do it but don't forget, there are a lot of traps, and dangereous lands, so you can run, but you can't hide . In fact, all the map is permanently revealed to all players.
The gameplay is based more in killing units than buildings. Some structures such as fortresses or armories are not buildable but you can still produce a lot of units and structures. Anyway, you will have thousands of command points. The war strategy on big scale battles is the most important issue as planification mode can help you a lot. Evil starts up and good starts down. DON'T TRY TO DESTROY THE CITIES, it's impossible and a waste of time.
Importants issues : To activate sea forces, each side must enter its port. The porters are outside the map, just click on their icons and make them move to some points inside, they will appear. As there are big armies coming, you might have to lower performances level if your PC is not powerfull, you will see. Although it's a multiplayer map, it's work with skirmish (better if hard or brutal)
