******CRITICAL BFME2 PATCH 1.09 UPDATE AVAILABLE******

Hi Everyone, 

unfortunately at release we found some issues with HD Edition compatibility, aswell as a few bugs in the patch files. These have now all been remedied and RoR will also be providing an update at the same time for HD Edition on Moddb. I have updated all the links in the main download thread.


I am very sorry for the inconvienence, but if everyone spreads the word that this is now available everyone should be on the same page within a few days. In future, the switcher will have a check for updates feature which will make things like this a lot easier.

If you have custom hotkeys or higher zoom for 1.00 and 1.06 make sure you back these up before installing this!



You will mismatch if you do not get the update.

Battle For Middle Earth II Patch 1.09 Is Now Live

IPB Image





Hi All, Patch 1.09 is finally here for download. It's been a long, long road, and I would first like to thank everyone who invested time into this monster sized patch. Almost 3 years of work, thousands of hours of work on both balance, cosmetics, and sounds, this is truly the biggest ever patch published in the BFME Franchise. I would like to extend thanks to Echelon for being my right hand man, and Rider of Rohan for helping a lot with art, and work on the switcher. Thanks to all in the beta team for their input and fine tuning of balance, notable mentions are included in the patch credits. Also a big thanks to Paramatha for coding the switcher for us. I have included some preview content below, the best way to preview though of course is to play the patch! There are hundreds of new Special FX, hundreds of new sounds, and new models. We also refined maps a lot and deleted the Tower Wars ones as they are mostly balanced for 1.06. We have a good map pool of quality over quantity which was not the case in 1.08. You can also checkout Val's youtube channel for many preview videos of patch content.

11 Years Of Competitive Balancing

BFMEII Patch 1.09 is the biggest patch ever developed in the BFME Franchise, it is larger than all prior patches combined, including the official patches that GR developed for EA(1.05/6) and Battletest Patches. 1.09 is 3 years worth of beta testing, it fine tunes all uneven matchups from 1.08 and so much more. We hope that our work here makes for a fair, enjoyable experience for both casuals and competitive players alike.

New Maps & Reskin's

The 1.09 map pool is smaller than 1.08, but better quality maps, that also includes reskins of the most popular maps like Udun II and Fords of Isen II, previewed below.

Visual's for Leadership and Buff's

Ever get frustrated that spells like Farsight and Palantir show no visible horde FX? Not anymore! Patch 1.09 also introduces all new buff-nugget FX for existing spells such as heal, devastation, poison, and more.
