Okay, the balloon's picture is stretched.

Also when the mystical jinn does it's dimensional vortex attack it looks weird.

This happens to all images larger than 72x72 pixels. It is easy to fix by providing a dummy "thumbnail" image. It is purely cosmetic but I will prepare a fix in the next release.

Well, it opens a passage between dimensions and this has to look weird. But I have been thinking about improving the whole animation, so expect something better soon.

Hi, as solicited here is my feedback of balance changes at Era of Magic.

The change is intended to give more consistency at factional balance (by nerfing the obvious brokens and buffing all not so popular units) and aditional considerations. Few changes are exception to this rule, the best example is the gobling shaman which was a bit too strong as mage to be in a warrior's faction and focused it more in the supportive role (and a little more expensive).

Also, extra considerations, attacks and resistances to certain units to compensate the significant nerf of some others, as well Sky Kingdom receive a little hp buff considering that there are not so many hitpoints in this faction early on.

So now there are cool extras to units that weren't that loved at all. The intention of is to flat both OPness and weaknesses of each faction but maintaining their initial essence (that did sound a bit superfluous lol). With once reading the notepad you will clearly understand to what I do want to refer.
