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.
I think this is it
So, when they first came out this sort of strategy mobile game flooded the market. Most of them are just blatant rip offs of each other and have the exact same pattern on overcrowded menus and way too much stuff to pay attention to and it was all hidden behind a pay wall anyway so no one wanted to play them. This game however, is so nice and neatly packaged and it’s so user-friendly and even though it has a lot of the same overcrowded menus it’s all packaged much more neatly in that your castle only has really five buttons that you need to focus on and then you need to worry about your commanders and units. This as opposed to the other games that make you focus on 1 million different things all at once.
Not to mention that it’s packaged in a lord of the rings skin which is absolutely fantastic. And also, at least for now, the game is not paid to win. I’ve seen just as many people playing for free doing really well as I have people who spent $100 on it already and have roughly the same stuff as those who work hard for it.
My only criticism is that I wish there were more tips and, honestly, more commanders. But other than that this is a great game and I highly recommend it!
