Hello. I have played this game for about a year now and managed to finish both campaign's on easy and decided to replay the campaign on medium. however on the minas tirith level my gondor army is completely different. I lost all my melee infantry and 1 knight battalion. I tried to restart the level but it was the same all the time. Has anyone heard of this before?

normal, the medium campaing starts with fewer units than the easier, as hard starts with even fewer
