Review by Master of the Seas on 5/31/2019.
Beautifully designed, seems fairly well balanced - I've won from a few starting points and none seemed excessively easy or difficult. I particularly liked the use of the Eagles, great for being able to get your armies from secured areas to the front lines. You can deal fatal damage in an enemies stronghold if you break their eagle connection(s).

I found two missing connections (Teneg-En Egledil

Review by Evil Evilly McEvil on 8/3/2019.
Good mix of open areas, chokepoints, and warps to other areas.

Not to mention its aesthetic value, which is often undervalued in this game, but which this map proves is possible and an addition of value.

Awesome map! Allows you to duke it out in familiar and unfamiliar lands, and once done, catch an eagle to the next enemy!
Very well balanced, though the major bonuses like Gondor and Mordor should be increased.
Can never be bored or idle. Love it!

This map is actually beautiful, and does tribute to Tolkien's world of Middle-earth.
Only one typo I've noticed, Tolfolas --> Tolfalas
This is amazing, Colion, keep it up bro!

Review by Scipio Africanus on 9/10/2020.
Excellent map with lots of good chokepoints. Loved the artwork, the best LoTR map I've seen. The eagles are a bit overpowered if one player gets control of them before anyone else can, but otherwise provide a unique experience.

I think I found 1 broken connection: Scaxy <-> Gamwich

LouShyphere never rates maps. This map was fun, Epic, very accurate to The Battle of Middle Earth.
For all you critics....burn in Loushyphere's world. Rate this map #1
