An irrepressible dark power has been growing, seeping, and bring the war to every inch of Middle-earth.

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.
Developer Response ,
Hello player. Thanks for your feedback. We will collect your valuable suggestions about Faction Imbalance and pass them on to our development team for further review. Hope it will become a reality in the future. Thanks for your support.
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.
Phenomenal game. Highly recommend!
This game is super fun! So far, I’ve been playing non stop for 2 weeks. Easy game to play in between tasks at work or around the house. For us long time LOTR fans, this game is incredible for a mobile game. I have a few recommendations for developers. - it would be really fun to have a ‘grand exchange’ where we can trade items with other players across the server (much like RuneScape) - would be sweet if we could send resources (wood, stone, grain etc. To other members of our fellowship/faction) - I would like clarification as to whether mobs have special (rare drops) or not. This would increase incentive and exponentially increase the fun factor. -have no idea what a craftsman’s contract does… still, as there is no description. Just a side note. I feel that the pay to play features imbalance the game just a tad bit as players have access to so much more (gems, mathom box etc. Though I understand it’s importance. Thanks! Will provide more feedback as I continue my conquest for middle earth!
Update: game still fun.
-NEED REAL TIME (in-game) language translator; it is a headache to go back and forth translating language with every player. Amazing that we are all from around the world but it would be helpful to have this tool in game.
