 Really weird coincidence although not exactly the same, I might never want to upgrade the unit

I really don't know whether you're choice of words is due to your lack of common sense or because you're that bad of a person.
Eitherway it's remarkably pathetic and considering I'm talking about you that's already saying something. Words fail me.

Not cool, not cool at all, the ganging up on Night I mean.

Sure I'm in agreement she's in the wrong, but we don't need a whole page to point this out without trying to be a little bit more constructive.


Anyway, the language, culture, history and legends are as vivid and complex as anything western civilization has had.
It's a little alien which makes it hard for people to relate too, but part of that also appeals to those of us who like discovering new things.
That... or you're already kinda familiar with the subject matter on some levels (<3 myths in general, regardless of where they came from) and like to see something a little more obscure (by western standards) make its way into a big game like this.

Naming them with Japanese terms for warrior, swordsman or other military titles helps enhance their more exotic nature from the other factions.

Besides it not like anybody ever complained about the naming of the Dwarf Berserker, which isn't english either, heck Dwarves and Elves aren't English, they're from Norse myth.

So please don't rebuff foreign things simply on that basis, it's very arbitrary to say what should be used and what shouldn't from real world myth.

Of course you're free to dislike it on other grounds.

I'm sure they have been absorbed to English. English has absorbed so many words from many other languages that you'll swear those English spelling bee competitions are not about English at all.

I absolutely agree with above comment and also by naming them with Japanese terms helps the developer and the gamers to better find common strings among philosophy,  fighting style and moral conduit of the faction without having to point at them or a need to over complicate and give an abundance of details, basically if you make the connection of the warriors from medieval Japan with the Naga faction you don't have to be specific on why some things are done and the fight style is like it is etc.

 That's why you can better immerse your self and get a grip of a faction like Heaven because they ware build upon the medieval Europe knights philosophy and conduit which is familiar either through learned history or other media, the examples can go on.

Which basically illustrates that it's not about where it comes from, it's all about familiarity, or the lack there of in this case.
Given time, you can learn to see the whole picture and appreciate or condemn it on it's own merrits rather then it's origin.

One reaps what one sows. I am not in favour of bullying but in this case she really did her best to provoke people's ire even if she didn't realize how ignorant(or plain insulting) that sounded. But I have no doubt that was not her intention, if I believed that it would be an instant penalty right there. My previous post was never intended to make fun of her ignorance, the whole point is that she's making big statements on things she knows/cares little about. Nobody minds if you are missing something, having a big mouth however..

So to keep things simple. Watch it nighty, I'm tired of this game and if you keep upsetting people with your posting - intentionally or not - I will have to silence you. This is not the kind of environment we want to cultivate here and you aren't helping. Show some concern girl! It's your community too.

MrDragon rest assured I'm not saying anything here because Nighty said it. It's what she said. I'm sure she didn't honestly mean what she says (well atleast I hope so...) and it's just her thing for being an attention ***** and a bit of a sensationalist getting the better of her once again but that doesn't make it the least bit more acceptable. She's not so stupid as to not know how terrible the situation in Japan is and not know that the joke is in incredibly bad taste. And really... it's just quite pathetic.


EDIT: SEE?! Elvin thinks it too. Ha same post time even.

Enough of this. Let's talk about Sanctuary.

Turns out there are 3 Naga species. There are Deep Nagas and Corral maiden type, but I wonder what the last is?

From a story perspective, the liberation of Mother Namtaru from one of their prison island act as a catalyst for their involvement in H6.

The third one is the Kirin.

It's on the official website and facebook page also.

The description says that Kirin is some sort of water spirit, so how it can be a Naga species?

Could it be the Kappa?
