There and back Again - Excalibur's Blog

Thursday, 24 Dec 2015
...there and back again...Now...where to begin...?Ah, yes...Middle-earth...Middle-earth...a magical world we had the chance to experience not only through the novels, but the top-notch movies as well. That world was ingrained into our minds and still hasn't seemed to fade away even after all...

Why 2.02's Random is Revealed

Wednesday, 29 Jul 2015
Reasons why the random faction is shown in the loading screen in 2.02:Before going to the actual reasons, one thing that has to be mentioned about the culture of BfME2 and RotWK is that unlike in more established RTS-games, the vast majority of the player base - competitive or casual - chooses...

Battle for Middle-Earth 2 Vs. Rise of the Witch-king - Excalibur's Blog

Thursday, 28 Feb 2013
Seeing as players always argue about those two games with many opinions like they are completely different, I gathered as much as possible info I could from both sides and decided to write this blog expressing this time my opinion which I never stated on the public forums. Below is an opinion of...

Rotwk Gaming Skill - Excalibur's Blog

Sunday, 27 May 2012
There are some things about RotWK that players will never come into agreement. Things like which strategies are most effective against certain match-ups and situations, which is the best faction, who is the best player and generally anything that has to do with each player's knowledge and...

Memories of the Past - Excalibur's Blog

Sunday, 22 Jan 2012
What's the thing that made us love the game? The majority of the BFME community has probably come to the game by watching the movies. The Lord of the Rings trilogy that made us watch it again and again moved our curiosity on how its game could be. And there was something in the game that was more...

Casual 2.02: A First Impression

Wednesday, 9 Feb 2011
The server shutdown changed many things; some of the community decided to leave, while the most devoted stayed and moved on to GameRanger. Because of having fewer players and to avoid a split community between 2.01 and 2.02, the 2.02 patch was chosen to be the only one supported by...

The Patcher's Perspective: 2.02 Victorious?

Monday, 3 Jan 2011
As I write this, 16 RotWK games are being hosted on GameRanger. That's down from 30, which has been the norm at peak game times during the past few days. Right now, it's 2:22 UTC, so not yet peak game time. Of course, it's also Monday, so lower activity on the weekend is not unexpected.I look...

The Patcher's Perspective on 2.4 and 2.5

Sunday, 30 May 2010
It's been three months since my last blog, The Future of 2.02. In that blog, I promised to keep updating the 2.02 patch, but with the goal of keeping patches small and infrequent:...large updates are disruptive and eliminate continuity in the community. Players may play less often if they know...

The Patcher's Perspective on the Future of 2.02

Sunday, 21 Feb 2010
Looking back, 2.02 has come a long way from its initial release in January 2008. The patch has grown in stages, with major updates in March 2008 (2.02a), January 2009 (2.02c), July 2009 (2.02e), and most recently January 2010 (2.1), and with a few minor updates in between. It has reached a very...

The Patcher's Perspective on The Day and Staff

Thursday, 3 Dec 2009
Wow, December already. If that doesn't seem like a problem to you, it's probably because you don't have a patch to release in just one month. January second is fast approaching, and I have to have everything ready for a smooth patch release by then.Well, actually, I have to be ready for more...
