Real Time Strategy

Average Rating


Ratings closed


The Dwarf Holds (TDH for short) is a modification for the Battle for Middle-earth, a real time strategy game by EA. We're adding a Dwarven faction based on Erebor, while also tweaking and adding a couple of things to the four original factions to get them up to the level of our new faction. This mod is being developed by Nertea, Matias (Dorian_Gray), M@tt, mike_ and Lauri. The mod is hosted by The 3rd Age, a division of Revora, the creative community.

Hey guys...
Is it just me, or is this mod REALLY unbalanced in favor of the dwarves. I play as Isengard (whose powers now suck), and I am extremely good at it, but when ever I play my friend, they always seem to win with just the heroes. I once upgraded an entire uruk-hai scout army (max pop of 800) and a Gimli, Durin, and Dain Ironfoot just killed them all.... Literally all of them.... Not to mention, if they have just 3 group of spearmen with these heroes, I don't stand a chance. I even used fully upgraded ballistas and archers on them... It did no good. Finally, The bird (Taroc, I think) is also a free scout which is nearly impossible to kill and is extremely annoying. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this while playing Isengard, but I hope they fix this soon. How can it be possible that Uruk-hai can be CRUSHED by puny dwarves. I may just go back to playing the original version.

For those wondering. The mod is NOT dead. They do not update this page much. Two campaigns are currently in the works right now.

Its a great mod which I myself as a very very big fan of the game and the Dwarven Race really appriciate ,but still there are few thing that I don't like very much!The fortress and the buildings are awesome and cool but the Dwarven Citadel in mine opinion should be bigger more massive after all is made from Dwarves :D!!!Next I don't really like the Dwarven Army which is made of so many warriors with so many different colors and different shields!After all its Called EREBOR so they should have some standart as army!And last question if this awesome Mod is not dead is there anyway for the mod team to use the designs from the Hobbit Movies for the Dwarves of Erebor!? :) Og and all those Maps you added are simply perfect and epic especially the fortress maps like Erebor(can't describe it with words,Ered Luin, and etc and can you make an Iron Hills fortress map!? :)
