The Egyptians get no hero units at all, but they can produce Priest/Monk units which can convert those big bad myth units.

i've heard that egyptians start with a hero but that's all. they cannot produce heroes anymore... is there a change?

Well its a good trade. You DEFINATLEY cant convert heros(that would SUCK), but you can probabally convert MU's, and that would be just as usefull as having an Anti-MU hero, just nowhere near as cool.

Yes, but the reason the hero is limited for the Egyptians is that they have so many powerful MU's already. The role of the hero seems to have shifted to countering MU's. Since the Egyptians lead in MU's they trail in heroes. It is a balance issue, and perhaps historically accurate as well. When you think of the Norse, you think, "a little mythology and lots of heroes in battle." When you think of the Greeks, you think, "a balance of mythology (many gods) and heros (Pericles, etc.)." When you think of the Egyptians you think, "lots of mythology and the Pharaohs are the only heroes." Try to name famous Egyptians who weren't Pharaohs.

i don't see why Egyptian priests canm't convert heroes...
if a norse hero attacks you with anything but heroes u lost the game...? i think converting heroes would make the norse and greek players think a lot more about sending those heroes to an egyptian town...

I don't think MUs or heroes will be convertable, how annoying would it be to have your hydra converted in the middle of battle? Perhaps they could just make them extremely hard to convert, but if they're that hard to convert, who'd bother? Anyway, Egypt still gets the pharoah... they aren't stuck with a bunch of old farts going 'Wololo'. (And they better go Wololo! ). Who knows, perhaps the Pharoah can do something that would make converting heroes or MUs a waste of time.

I can't wait for the civ showcases. Hopefully they will clear some of this stuff up.

God Bless America.

Greece would probably be first since it's the culture that is most related to the AoK civilizations, but I hope that the Scandinavians are first!
