Patch 1.08 made by Miraak to create a full new Balance based on Rotwk more realistic balance style and on what EA originally promised and showcased with all 4 factions balanced with their own playstyle and all units usefull instead of focusing too much on leadership and some specific units, also include some cut features to bring new surprises to the game. This is made for players that want to try Bfme1 experience with a more realistic balance, have a Bfme1 closer to what EA originally promised or who did not liked the original style. 1.06/1.09 and 1.08 are completly diffrents and separate projects.
