Play WaR with Locked Battle Groups
like classic CC4

This mod Locks the Battle Groups so you have to play the game with the teams the game provides for you, you do not get to select your team... quite a challenge!

Unzip the "Locked" folder to your WaR root folder and unzip the Locked Shortcut to your desktop. This will work if you installed WaR to the default folder... otherwise you will need to edit the properties of the link.
