AI: Yes
Minimap:
Notorius is back! It was a bit I didn't post a map, because I decided to take a break. Now I restarted to map again! So the first thing I had to complete was, my Mirkwood's Kingdom. In my previous version there wasn't a lot of things I wanted to add, that's why I updated my map with this last one!

Briefly, these are the main changes:

BUGFIXES

- Mordor Computers don't attack anymore with catapults from out the board of the map (the player couldn't fight the catapults and died)[However, good computers like Men or Elves fight a lot better then evil ones in singleplayer]
- Some words (ex: golderthorn arrows ) are now spelled right (But for some of them I think I need still help).
- Resolved some issues with arrows, expecially that goldthorn arrows didn't attack fly monsters.
- Resolved the bug of movement of some hordes, expecially ghost horde. The single unit moved a lot slower then the horde and it caused them to teleport sometimes.
- Out of synch should be reduced
- Added an effect for Men's super forged blades, which should have been added in the first version
- Fixed the map, because there were some accampaments and strange objects I forgot to leave from hte test.
- Other bugfixes that i don't remember or I will discover in these days

BALANCE

- Fixed some buildcosts of units, their attack, armor and health [Isengard Dragon, Balrog Horde etc..]
- Heroes now are useful, and not useless
- The game now is slower. Resources gain money faster, but the max amount is little [5 resources every two seconds]

NEW THINGS

- Every faction (Expect for isengard) has a new hero
- Every hero change attacks depending from the Age. They increase also attack, health and armor as the player upgrade the Age.
- Each hero has a at least one new Power, often unlocked by increasing Age. Some heroes increase their old powers when upgrading Age.
- There are 4 new spellbooks for each faction. The spellbooks now cost 4-8-12-16
- Perhaps other things that I don't remember :P

ENJOY! I hope it won't have any problem so i must do another version. :)

(It makes a bit to understand the mechanism, but when you know how it works it's just GREAT!)

Balance: 5
(I really liked the new hero powers, and I think that each side could be devastating if you know them.)

Creativity: 5
(Great map with this RiseOfNation style! I really like it, it changes the way of play the game!! And there are sooo many new things!!
)

Map Design: 5
(That's good too, I really liked this map, altough it's a little difficult to orientate, but perhaps it has been made on purpose)

Story/Instructions: 5
(There are enough informations in the main text of the map, and the Intro is good. However there isn't actually so much to understand..You have just to play it to discover the game..)

That's your best map!

This is one of the most innovative maps for BFME2 and the closest to a good mod as it comes, i don't see how anyone can give it less than a 5

No lag at all but it does a lot of out of synch due to the massive ini.file but it's understandable.Very good work on the ini btw.

Balance: 4.5
Seems well balanced but need to work a bit on Isengard early game balance and Frodo is too good for 200...

Creativity: 5
Very creative new units and hero abilities I love the monster factory and Faramir's Magical arrows, and Legolas' normal attack in 3rd age!

Map Design: 5
Awesome textures and cliffing good job

Story/Instructions: 5
Nice intro I loved it 5/5 for it.

Additional Comments:
You should remove the "Wait 1 minute to avoid out of synch" because out of synch is NOT caused by moving early in the game it's caused by players having different ini.files I even got out of synch while the wait timer wasn't expired(and I always restart my game after a map with own ini).
Overall awesome job, enjoyed the map a lot.
