Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5

Note to latecomers: The infamous flickering cursor issue was fixed since RC11. This update primarily contains a big update to the Advanced RMG. This article only deals with the balance changes. Thanks to reverse engineering efforts from Marco and dredknight Mass spells are now much better balanced, making it much harder for might heroes to keep reverting mass spells.
