Hi Garlodur  :)
 first of all, thank you for you feedback and sorry for the late answer.
I would try to clarify better my choices:


1st point : at least for me, as long as we excluded the ring heroes, there's no deadlock in the development of the idea. In this case,it is not directly a controlling of mind, but rather an indirect manipulation of the victim which is stunned and confused by the spell (the time need to be balance properly of course). It is a delicious reference to the power of the father of all fire-worms, so i deem it lore-friendly  :)

2nd-4th point : concerning level 1 and 10 abilities, i think they fit perfectly with the mass-slayer characterization of Smaug. As i wrote, i don't like fire ball and even less the fire-shaped dragon attack. They rightly belong to wizards. Furthermore, i don't think single target attack fit at all for Smaug. I used exactly the logic of the level 1-10 abilities of  Gandalf as an example of mass slayer: both wizards blast and word of power damages the enemy units and knock them back, but with a different scale of power of course (also in the ring form the bright word of power has effect on armor, which distinguish it more inuniqueness). In the same way incinerate and i'm fire,i'm death should have the same firespreading effect on a certain area (that's something that fits far better for a big dragon like him imo!!), but with a different area and animation (one in movement, the other when standstill in flight), and also with slightly different effect to give them more purposes!!
Concerning roar of the beast and wing hurricane, one make the units flee, the other knock back and damaged them ( but smaug is standstill so is not so protected!), given  the player the possibility to finish the damaged target with raged weapon or melee troops! At least even if i know i didn't add anything apart from original/classical/vanilla effects ( and you may say me that ideas seem "flat"  ;)), i can see there are some differences between the two :)

3rd point : it seems about dragon sickness (yeah maybe the name fits better for Thorin II, i could change it in "dragon greedyness" or something like that) the forum is quite divided [ugly]. I cannot say anything more than what i say to Darkness: it seems balanced and rapresent well the character in my opinion. In particular the double-cut effect (both against you or the enemy) underlines the fact that Smaug doesn't care about alliances especially about treasures. He instead pretend a tribute even when permanently in game  :) That's my view but i could be wrong of course. it could be not funny in game or not balanced. This i cannot know because it requires testing :)

5th-6th point : about the ring you are right, still it's work in progress. I would still work on greedyness and brutal power anyway. Because i think smaug doesn't want to resamble maia or similar creatures. He deems himself just perfect, and even more he will feel invicible under the influence of the ring i believe  ;)
I will clarify better the role of the dragon lair later on if it is not clear, i promise :)

Anyway, the FOR-AGAINST list are founded on agree-disagree on the general ideas (small details and some effects can change). I'm still quite new here (more or less 8 months),  so i have not so much experience in "management" of concept-related threads  [ugly]. But, a thing i'm learning is that we cannot agree or disagree on single details otherwise we start an eternal loop  [ugly]. So, about the general concept you agree or disagree? or i have to take you as "in-maybe" phase for now? ;). Feel yourself free to judge.
Of course i will take into account all the ideas and modify some details and/or effect, this i can do for sure  ;). What i cannot do is twist totally the ideas, both because i quite like them as they are (otherwise i would had not proposed them  [ugly]) and last but not least because just some people agreed with them  ;)

Vielen Dank ^^

Likely dropping an unpopular opinion here, but I think it's been kind of a shaky year for Edain with the departure of Ea and the lack of progress and communication following thereafter. The comparatively large playerbase of Edain is showing its dedication nonetheless and has elevated Edain through their votes. This time, I think it really is the community that deserves a thank you and praise since they didn't give up on the mod and still decided to vote.

Nevertheless, I'm quite glad that Edain is back on the road again. We have a lot to look forward to, and I believe 2018 will be another year for Edain to improve and grow, and show us what it is to keep Tolkien's memory alive through this magnificent gaming experience.

It is not unpopular Odysseus. You simply described facts. Facts that the team itself know. I agree with you.
Beside, it would have been easy to give up after the departure of Ea ( they told me he was doing a LOT of the work when active), but they didn't! Even if slowly they worked a lot for us, and I can imagine many of them must learn new stuff which before was crafted by the great leader! In my opinion they deserve a praise too, together with patience fans.
I hope this wave of votes in MOTY2017 will be a good charge of positive energy. It's sign of a compact community, that has respect and it is grateful for the efforts the team made along these years to craft this masterpiece. A community that has, at the same time, a great desire to explore more about the Tolkien world through this mod and  hopes to see the work finally complete someday in the future!
So, I would finally say to the team: never give up, take your time for the good work ! This mod is the best strategy game a Tolkien fan can ever desire!! don't let this dream finish!  :)

Ehrlich gesagt hatte ich auch nicht mehr im Kopf, dass da noch was kommt, und ich hab die Ränge damals maßgeblich mitkonzipiert [ugly]

Ich meine mich zu erinnern, dass es bei den alten Rängen irgendwo ab 100k "Sklave des Admins" oder so gab, zumindest hat das mal wer behauptet [ugly]
Bei den neuen war "Bewahrer des Roten Buches" eigentlich ein so passender Abschluss, dass ich danach keinen mehr erwartet hätte^^

Also ab 20.000 Beiträgen bekommt man den Titel "Herrscher der Modding-Union"? [...]

Ist das jetzt ein "guter" oder ein "böser" Titel?  :D

Selbstverständlich habe ich wie jedes Jahr wieder für Edain gestimmt. Ich hoffe, ihr kommt wieder weit, weit vor!  ;)

Tatsächlich ... [ugly]
Ich hätte die beiden Beiträge nicht mehr schreiben dürfen. Das versaut mir jetzt die schöne Zahl.  :D

Nun, dann bin ich jetzt scheinbar Herrscher der Modding-Union - hat auch irgendwie etwas.
