Welcome fans of BFME and LOTR
On this page i will introduce you with my mod for Rise of the Witch-King, on which i worked on for the past 2 years
Before playing this mod, be sure that you have patched the game with 2.01 version
The Battles of the Third Age (BOTTA) mod is a mod for The Battle for Middle Earth - The Rise of the Witch King.
This mod tends to follow the lore of books and films along with bringing the realism in the gameplay, and generally concentrates of the happenings in the Third age of Middle Earth, so you will se almost every character that fought in the battles of this age, for example: Bolg, Beorn, Imrahil, Shagrat etc.
Lots of the balance from the vanilla games is fixed so be free to expect some new gameplay styles and new strategies and tactics that you will use in order to destroy your enemy.To do that, you will get help from the new Heroes and Units and their new Powers that are in this mod.
No rush tactis anymore, AI wont charge on you in the first 5 minutes, giving you no time to expand your camp and upgrade your economy. Gameplay now focuses on defence, rather than offence like in the vanilla game. So you will have alot of time for preparing for battle, upgrading your units and level up your Heroes.

This is just raw informatin and explanation of whats new in this mod, the new READ ME file is in process giving you the expanded and detailed information for each Faction individually.

General changes:
- Stronger Heroes
- Stronger Structures
- New Game balance
- New Heroes, Units, Buildings and Powers
- New and improved Textures for every single Hero or Unit in the game
- Smaller battalions
- New Upgrades
- New Archer system
- New Siege system
- New Upgrade systems
- New sounds and effects

First Official version is released 4 months ago, and it got quite popular with over 4000 downloads by now! For now, there are 6 playable factions, each with new units and different game play styles.

Check out the ModDB page of BOTTA mod, with new released Isengard Update.
