Patch 1.08 made my Miraak to create a full new Balance based on Bfme2/Rotwk more realistic balance style, this is made for players that want to try Bfme1 experience with a more realistic balance. Warnig this is completly diffrent from the old versions, dont try to compare them to much. 1.06/1.03 are BT:DC patch while 1.08 is more like 2.02/original game EA gameplay the problem of BT:DC is like patch 1.09, they were made for "pro" and the majority of the players dont enjoy their blance style and prefer to play bfme2 1.00 or rotwk 2.02

Is this patch official with the likes of patch versions 1.06 and so on? I know it says that patch 1.06 is required, but I honestly cannot tell if this is meant to be a continuation of those patches, or if 1.08 is meant to be its own thing. I know I might be sounding stupid, but could someone help me out here?

Well actually the last official patch is 1.03, 1.06 and previous have been community made patch
it's the same for 1.08 but it's a diffrent team
1.06 still have lot of bugs and problems so yeah this is supposed to be a continuation of 1.06 (at least more a continuation of original EA view of their game) but it's also diffrent if u see what i mean.

what do you mean ?

Reply Good karma+1 vote

just my opinion but I think it's not very balanced, the elite units die very fast, and the tower are basically useless as defense for archers, I know it's just beta, although this mod has great thing also, and I think the previous animations for the mordor orcs and gondor soldiers were better, the gondor soldier look funny when moving and the orcs a bit weird, it's nice to have more animations yes I know but in this case, one thing I really liked is that you can level up most of your units to level 10 when combining battalions if you have one in that level and then you separate them, although I think that should be fixed, I hope my critic be more of a constructive one.

thx for your post, well for the elite units
there are ithiliens rangers and elven warriors but they are archer so it's normal they are not resistants but they still do lot more damage than regulars units, and for TG and soldier of rhun well they are really resistants in comparaison to regulars units but they are weak against swordsmen

for the towers well archer without fire arrows dont do any damages to structures and if towers were able to shoot/outrange every units it would be OP

for the combos i dont know if this can be fixed yet but units are slower and less resistant when they are in combo mode (to prevent spam of pikes-archer combo)

for the animations well some like some dont but i dont plan to revert back

trolls have a damage scalar with punch against heroes but gandalf destroy trolls with istari light or lightning sword (since saruman and gandalf have great power they regular mele damage is low)

also, saruman power is great, but gandalf is so weak against trolls, and good work with enabling witch king
