As the day of judgement draws near, the full might of the Chinese empire is revealed. 'Tis the day of the dragon, the day of the Monkey and the day of Zen. All hail the Chinese empire!

It is the last of the last updates, and it's a big one. As we've only shown you half of the capabilities of the Chinese there was still a lot of unrevealed stuff. We're making up for it now by releasing it all at once, finally completing the Chinese faction page!

Head over to the factions page and read about Invulnerability, Ninja Monkeys, Dragon, the Monk, Terracotta Warriors and the Zen Master. Go go go!

Doesn't some of these spells make it a bit unfair to the other factions? Like invulnerability, having a soldier invulnerable to any attack is a bit of a cheat. But it depends on how long it lasts, if its on like 2-5 seconds I guess its not much of a problem (but it is still a bit of a cheat, no offense Ronimo do what you like, just saying). The Dragon spell isn't that much of a problem if you have a bunch of archers right? lol I was just wondering if some of the spells make it unfair, but you guys probably made it fair somehow. O well I'll just have to wait and see ti. ^_^

Game balance indeed is very important to us and we have spent a lot of time making sure the game is as fair as possible. Invulnerability has a fairly short duration but there can be circumstances in which it is very powerfull, especially earlygame when there's not that much units out in the field. Dragon is can be game-changingly powerfull lategame but it costs a lot of mana to cast. Some strategies may take a little more practice to master, but in general you win a match of Swords & Soldiers because you were playing better than your opponent, not because of some unfair advantage. Hope that answers your question!

same here, but remember that it was recently released in europe, so if it makes no sense not to tell us the remaining units.

Loved the part about making everything feel overpowered. And really that's what you want to feel like. If you think to your self "i've got my ace in the hole game winning strategy in my pocket ready" and watching your opponent counter maneuver makes for a more exciting game than if everything seemed useless.

Just a random thought, shouldn't you move the Buddha down to the bottom of the list, where the Aztec and Viking tower units are?
