Hello,

I was wondering if someone have tried to integrate the expansion pack into the orginal game (map). Also using the expansion and orginal units on the orginal map and maybe the expansions combat rules?

I also have one more quistion about the regular and the elite units in the orginal game, and that is if someone have tried to make the elite units some stronger than the regular units????

For Example make the elite units count as 2 in combat strenght (2 dices) and the regular still 1 (1 dice)???

Or will this damage the balance of the game?

Elites are already over twice as strong as regulars: they absorb two hits before fully dying.

For the defender they pack hit points into strongholds with double efficiency.

For the attacker they can score run-away victories in sieges by breaking down to continue the siege.

Combat cards like Valor, We Come to Kill, Mumakil and [/i]Charge[/i] require one or more elites.

Isengard elites typically have leadership, which makes them even more stellar.

Elites can't win the war by themselves though. Sometimes it is better to take two regulars.
