Ratings and Reviews
Fun but unbalanced
I just want to say that this game is incredibly fun; however, it’s also incredibly frustrating. The evil faction commanders are so overpowered that my maxed out commanders with good gear a full maxed out armies will lose every battle against an evil faction commander 10 levels lower. Now a good faction commander 10 levels lower wouldn’t stand a chance but the evil faction commanders win every time. On every server I’ve played on, Mordor wins almost uncontested because no one really had a chance to begin with. Evil faction commanders are so overpowered that my entire fellowship agrees it’s an unfair battle from the start. Something needs to change or this game is either going to lose players or everyone is just going to play evil factions so that they actually have a chance at winning. I gave 4 stars because of how fun the game is. It didn’t get 5 stars because of this blatantly obvious unbalanced combat. I wouldn’t be surprised if this hasn’t already cost the game players. Just now my level 50 Aragorn lost to a level 43 Khaldoon. As a matter of fact that level 43 Khaldoon also defeated my level 47 Haldir in the same attack, so lower level and handled two of my higher level commanders. If that’s considered balanced play then I must not have two brain cells between my ears because it doesn’t seem like it to me.
Love the game, but…
I’ve been playing this game for a few months now. Following up with updates, content creators, the discord, and even doing my own research with fellowship mates and friends. I love the game. If you’re looking for a decent war game that requires strong communications and teamwork, with a play style similar to risk but with more interaction then this is the game you should try.
Now my only complaint would be how it is advertised to be non pay to win. That is unfortunately a blatant lie. I am not against paying to unlock extra items and I enjoy the season pass rewards. But there is a clear difference in what a Free to Play player is capable of and what someone who spends hundreds (or in the case of our server thousands) on mathoms is capable of. Respect 10 equipment is nearly impossible to get for free to play players let alone upgrade them but you added it as a major feature in season 2 and beyond.
All I’m saying is I would love to see some deserved respect and support of your free to play or low spender players. Stop catering towards those who spend massive amounts to gain fully upgraded equipment with the best stats and abilities for multiple commanders. I hope you see this and genuinely consider my input as I’ve seen already some decent response to the community and additions like the new red book challenges.
TLDR: Awesome, Risk-like multiplayer, war strategy game that is outfitted in LOTR theme. Needs to balance Free to Play and Pay to Win.
Gameplay is fun, honestly, but updates have been aggravating
***Dec 29:*** UPDATE: After week off I retried downloading and something was patched that allowed me to log in again. Apparently many players had been booted off as well. The irony was that the update which caused all this was the “yule” holiday expansion. The changes to gameplay that are made in these frequent updates don’t seem to outweigh what is lost by the headache they’ve cost. Much rather would have not lost days worth of progress, but oh well. Time to play catch up with the other teams.
“I was one of the most active and powerful players in my faction, logged on with an update and now I can’t even open the game. Played for weeks, but apparently for no reason because none of it matters now. What a load of garbage. If this changes I guess I’ll edit my review, but I’m still missing out right now on critical siege plans we had. I’ve even tried un-installing the app and re-downloading. Good thing I never paid for anything yet, there will be lots of tempting chances to pay in the game, but DONT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY! Turns out you could just lose the ability to even open the app like me.”
