Middle Earth 2 (rebalanced) DLC REQUIRED

Same map as Nemesis13 had with a couple of changes.
You need golden realms installed, deluxe version is not required.

1. Smauog spawn (beware oh ye dwarves!)
2. Rebalanced Sauron (Sauron is now op with defense, but can be held back by a united gondor front)
3. Saruman and gandalf are in! Lady Galadriel Has joined!
4. The one ring is here!
5. The Ringwraiths can be summoned, through their altar, starting the quest for the one ring!
6. Lots of unusual Lotr specific Items!

Couple of bug fixes, mostnotably, the cave near dol guldur now works.
Dol Guldur now is a rather dangerous place to go, and you would be wise to never enter that haunted place.... hehehe

A poll will be launched to elect and rank the 20 best mods of AoW3 as of 2017. In order to shortlist the 20 mods, I opened a discussion here: Please share your favourite mods there. Please also comment on the mods already listed so that we can see which are the favourites to be in the shortlist.
Maps are not included but there is also a discussion to elect the best maps here:
So you can comment on that 2nd discussion to support the Middle Earth 2 map. I however would like to point out that a version 3 of that map has been done and is better than this one, as pointed out by Shaithias, the map author in 2015 (see 3 comments below):

It'll be in scenarios - but as well as subscribing, you need to exit the game. Then when restarting the game, before you put your password in, go to 'User Content' and click 'Update'

I subscribe the scenario and when i'm in the game i can't find it anywhere.
Any advise?

ALRIGHT FOLKS. Middle earth2 is no longer supported, it will stay on steam workshop, but in the meantime, Middle Earth 3 with new dlc content is up. If you like the middleearth map and want to stay on, then migrate to the new map! Sorry, but it had to be done, I am not going to keep both maps evolving with different units and items and abilities! :P

halflings exist on this map in hobbiton, I am working on a campaign map that is for werlac as the main hero, when that is done, I will be back to make this one better.

the map is very unbalanaced. I took control of the Sauron's army, and basically won the game with solo Wraith King hero, just leveled him up quickly around Mordor, then captured Gondor Capital, Rohan Capital, Dwarves Capital and Elves Capital - game over. The items he gets are simply too powerful and with high levels he just kills everything with ease with spells or otherwise.. the most problem he got was from blight units, and i think only a one hero on the map caused him any problem, and that was because he had poison attack.
