Do you realise where the two words come from? Think "alphabet". They're Greek alphabet letters. See here.

Gama, Delta...

I'm stuck with ToK until Kronoss uploaded the most current version. So why not being nice and trying this? I feel bad that I didn't help here, although I was asked to from the beginning. Maybe being a tester can make up for it.

Testing takes a long time to make sure no bugs.  However, once the testing is finished, and it is in final stage, I want to be one of the first to get it

I'm really suprised by Elementals power diversity. In H3 they were very similiar. If Dwarves and Stronghold can have many units with similiar strenght, why Conflux can't?

Overall, I like the style of this faction. Very fast, with lots of attack and spellpower, but very weak creatures. In combat they give a feeling you just can't move or will get blown by one shot

Astral spirits seem to be kinda sucky because of the lack of HP. Come on, this is how much Unicorns have.

What are you going to do with the old Elementals? Trash?

Astral Spirits though are tier 6 have base growth of 3.


Old Elementals stay. They just must but I have no lust to explain it further now
