I do agree whole heartedly that heroes are way overbalanced as it is. However,
It does add a special flavor to the game to be able to field a cool special
unit that SLIGHTLY enhances others. I say tone down the heroes but don't
totally throw them away. That would be a shame to lose some of the story behind
the game.
