Or, instead of them using command points, let them be summoned by command points!
Here's the idea: i.e. You got an army of 200 commandpoints, so that means you can buy Éowyn or whatever. Aragorn requires i.e. an army of 750 command points before he can be bought.
But the player can than, after having an army of i.e. 1000 command points summon every hero they'd like. So I'd put a hero limit on it, so you'll have to choose: will I buy Éowyn to lead my small army, or will I wait until my army's got bigger and then buy Aragorn?
So, this *brilliant* idea solves several things:
- The early-game hero spamfest, cuz you'll need armies before heroes can be bought
- Many heroes in-game at the same time
- Strategy of deciding which hero to use
Another example: mordor. Because orcs are cheapish you'll get their number grow bigger so you can buy a Nazgul after reaching the required army command points. That'll add to the movie-feeling your mod wants to create: you get a small orc army with 1 Nazgul, or a medium army with 2 Nazgul, or a giant army with 8 Nazgul and the Witch-King! So no more armies without orcs and only Nazgul!

It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP
