It's left field, but I wonder if part of the problem is that it's too easy to get a V/three sil win. Dedicated smiths trade a harder middle game for endgame power, but because good skilling decisions and non-horrible item luck are usually enough to kill Morgoth anyway, they don't have much to use all that extra power on.

It might be interesting (and perhaps more consistent with half's original intent?) if killing Morgoth basically required you to either be a dedicated smith or have incredible luck with artefacts.
