Those are indeed an _exceptionally_ cool set of fixes.

I wonder if IW could give us the numbers of the new limits. Just so we could do rough calculations of how big a maps we can play with Pan or Ermor.

Maximum number of units have been increased by two and maximum number of commanders by four.

By two?!! Well that won't make a lot of difference then!

[I am being a pain. I presume JO meant a factor of two.]

LOL

So if I GOR 4 units I get to increase the unit limit by a whooping total of six

Edit, If indeed JO's comment refers to power of, than these indeed are great news. Old unit limit was what, 32k?- So now 1M. Very cool.

Pretty sure it's a multiplier. So if the old unit limit was 32k, it would be 64k now. Commanders now 4 times as populous.

I must say you are very optimistic if you truly believe the number of maximum commanders have been increased tenthousandfold.

In truth I have no idea how big the increase is. I was just being a jackass.

Edit: I'm also an idiot as I obviously confused factor of four with a magnitude increase of four. This is extra embarassing as I have some background in mathematics.

I fail to see how CB makes all spells and units equally useful, to be honest.
Thankfully, thats not what CB is supposed to do. If all units were equal, the game would become boring. CB is supposed to make more units/spells etc, useful (at the very least a niche use) rather than having one set of units that are good and the rest that are useless, as in Vanilla.
