Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5 RC17 – Large balance and campaign update
Latest and by far best version of Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5, includes ALL campaigns from original game and expansions. Uninstall any earlier version with the mod’s uninstaller.
Logistics is now half focused on boosting movement and half focused on reinforcements to make the difference between heroes with and without logistics less extreme and add more combat effectiveness to the skill.
Hero base movement is increased to make ‘total movement’ the same as in older versions of the game.
Leadership can now buff initiative of undead creatures, mass spells are significantly more powerful and combat is nerfed.
War machine HP now scales with hero level (if you have the skill).
There were a lot of minor changes to the composition of armies inside battle sides toward preventing extreme shooter/caster configurations.
