Invis army groups were also super fun. As was taking Avalon with two brigades and a p4.

The intention is that Sacred Order gain rider trait and Elves / Dark Elves lose both Riders and a fifth group.

I would like a few of our players to comment on having a fifth group.   It seems powerful, but there hasn't been much discussion about it.  I have  also thought about granting a fifth group either as a customization option or given if say, control of two regions.

I'm happy with the low drop rate now.  I give a lot of credit to Mike for that for how great the order entry site is. 

I still do not know what to do with the dozens to hundreds of people that establish an account and never play.

Based on the half dozen or so Maelstrom games I have played so far, my assessment is that for kingdoms who have an easy time building militaries, 5+ groups is powerful.  For kingdoms who struggle a bit to build militaries, 5 groups is a minor convenience.  Magic kingdoms having 5 groups, I think, would be overpowered in the late game due to all the summons and companions they have.

One thing I have been a bit confused over is why UN has 5 groups, but DW has 4 (coincidentally, UN does very well, DW does very poorly, so switching that might serve a balance purpose).  LI also seems like he should have 5, maybe EL too.
