T3A News » The Ridder Clan Mod's Voting System

Posted April 23, 2014. By Ridder Geel | View Comments

Hello Ridder Clan Mod Fans (and others),


Today I am happy to demonstrate the Voting System which I have created for the Ridder Clan Mod!

The concept is a relatively simple one, you start a game and then vote for which options YOU like most, or allow the game to choose for you.


Press here to read more about this new feature in the Ridder Clan Mod!


Feel free to comment and give suggestions about extra gameplay modes or other things!

T3A News » The Ridder Clan Mod's Elven Create-a-Character

Posted April 15, 2014. By Ridder Geel | View Comments

Hey Ridder Clan Mod Fans (and other The 3rd Age dwellers),


Finally a new Create-a-Character class is here for the Ridder Clan Mod!

Using all the new pieces we have added on the Elven CaC you can make 39200000 unique combinations!

(Disclaimer: The actual number may be slightly larger or smaller, don't take my word for it, i may have miscounted due to the immense amount of parts!)


For a sneak preview of several of the outfits take a look at the post made by Valaquenta here!


To make it even more interesting Val shows off an interesting feature for the Elves in one of the pictures, see if you can find out what it is!


Feel free to comment and give us suggestions!

T3A News » 13-04-'14: T3A:Online Steam Groups

Posted April 13, 2014. By Mathijs | View Comments

Good afternoon friends,

In order to provide greater support for the social aspect of our BFME servers, we've decided to create Steam groups for them. 

Using these groups allows you to: 

- Chat with other group members, even when you're in-game (shift+tab) 
- Create private chats with group members. 
- Voice chat with group members. 
- Quickly see if there are people looking for games. 

All you have to do is add Battle for Middle-earth to your Steam Library. Games > Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library. 

We've created a group for both BFME1 and BFME2, called T3A:Online BFME1 and T3A:Online BFME2. Just search for them on Steam and join us!

T3A News » 11-04-'14: New Forum Layout

Posted April 11, 2014. By Mathijs | View Comments

Hi all,


As you might have noticed, the T3A forum layout has gotten a bit of a facelift.


Here's a head's up on what's been changed:

  • Forum names and descriptions improved.
  • Redirects to modding tutorials added to BFME1 Modding, BFME2 & RotWK Modding, Art & Graphics, and Worldbuilder.
  • Hosting Services & Support has been added to the T3A Community category.
  • BFME Modding Jobs, Requests and Ideas has been renamed to Drawing Board & Mod Recruitment, and made it into a subforum under Showcase.
  • Mod Discussion and Tool Development subforums removed, topics moved to The Prancing Pony and Showcase.
  • Several old and useless redirects removed.

I hope you like the new layout. For further suggestions, feel free to post here, or shoot me a PM.

T3A News » T3A:Online for BFME2 Is Here!

Posted April 2, 2014. By Mathijs | View Comments






Hello everyone! Today is a big day for the BFME2 community.

Ever since the EA's BFME2 servers were taken offline, 

we and many other BFME2 fans have been waiting and wishing for the servers to return.

Wait no more!


As promised, we are releasing BFME2 server support!


Ever since we released T3A:Online for BFME1, we have been bombarded by people asking us if and when we would release it for BFME2.

All you need to do is download and install the client, create an online account over at our forums, and you'll be all set to log into the servers.






WHAT DOES T3A:Online for BFME2 DO?

  • It restores BFME2's online functionality
  • It eliminates the need for third party software (such as Hamachi or GameRanger)
  • It is compatible with all mods and game patches (provided the person you're playing is using the same game version)
  • It features a working buddy system


  • It does not have the quickmatch system (yet).
  • It does not support stats or ladders (yet).


  • A clean version of BFME2, preferably patched to 1.06 (the last official patch EA released). 
  • A Revora forum account (the name you choose becomes your T3A:Online account name)
  • A special password set in your Revora account settings (the password you choose will become your T3A:Online password. It should be unique and not used anywhere else)


  • We are working on RotWK, no release date yet.



For our official T3A:Online BFME2 forums, go here.


For a complete guide on installation, please refer to the website:

If you are experiencing difficulties, please refer to our support forums:


Have fun playing!
