Unique Mordor Units?

Post by echo » Tue Jan 29, 2019 12:18 am

I was just wondering if you are planing on have any of the more less used Mordor units in the Mordor faction. Such as the fellbeast (the mounts of the Ringwraiths), could they be there own unit to combat the eleven eagle? And more likely if not as a standard unit, perhaps a unit to summon as a power or as a fortress power (the max fortress power in BFME 2 where used too many times, like each faction had the same power as the next).
Also, there are other creatures rumored to be in Mordor, such as giant spiders (bigger then Mirkwoods), and large bats that are vampire like.
(and I am sure more evil creatures inhabited Mordor during the War of the Ring then I can think of off the top of my head)

Are any of these units planed or have been considered? I just think that Mordor in BFME 2 was a bit to normal considering the rich lore that surrounds it and the many strange creatures inhabiting that land. (I know that each unit should be carefully chosen and have a place, but some of these units would be just so fun and I bet could find a purpose in the game play)

Also curious if anyone else thinks it a good idea to look for creatures in Mordor that weren't used in BFME 2, or if it would be simply a bad idea.

Sincerely,
Echo

I think a simple answer to your question would be yes, i think there will be more of the lore used. Fellbeast was already a thing in bfme2 right? The hero unit... I'm pretty sure that fellbeast(s) will be included.

We have already seen fellbeasts in some of the trailers, so I guess they will be part of Mordor.
Something that I also found really unique in BfME1 were the free Orcs, which fit Mordor perfectly. I would love to see them back.

Maybe some more specialised Orc units? Like the morannon black guards or morgul orcs? There are so many options...

I think one of the most important things is to clearly differentiate between the 3 (or 4 including Angmar) evil factions that are all using orcs/goblins and even more other beasts. So I'm not really sure if it would be such a great idea to add many wild beasts to Mordor instead of the Wild faction, and wights fit a lot better to Angmar.
