I don't know if the creature that is being attacked by the entire tribe is epic. But what I do know for certain is that it doesn't have to be epic. It was always said that a creatures size could vary between hamster size and elephant size.

Now imagine a tribe of hamsters being attacked by an elephant, and look at the screenshot again. I think you get my point  ;).

true but if those are human sized creatures...?

i guess well find out in more vids or when we get the game.

but basicaly, epics will own.

Maybe the size of 'Epic' changes depending on what stage your at?

To keep it managable/killable in either stage.

You can not hope to beat something as big as a city in tribal stage where you are ants compared to it.

Reminds me of Gullivers Travels.

Ooh!  That's a good idea!  How about they also put in Gnomic creatures (Creatures that are the size of insects?)

Epic Creatures?

Ok so, mabey I missed some big video, news report, or big thread, but who has information on these epic creatures?  I remeber seeing a video of a creature taller than the trees attacking a city, but other than that I haven't seen anything else.  I keep seeing it all over the forums and Im just curious.
I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed there would be no more war

You can make big creatures in the CC.  It might happen at random where a monster you fought earlier shows up jumbo sized.

If there's anything you wish to discuss further about epic-creatures, I'm sure no-one will mind a thread bump as long as it's a worthwile post  :)

from what i understand, but could be wrong about, you can choose to make one creature "epicified" i'll look for the video where i heard it from though.

You don't choose which creature it is. But I am pretty sure in the Space phase there is a tool to epic-ify creatures and put them beside an enemy city. KILL EM MARIO!

Well, I just used the search button to find any topics on this forum. The one I linked was the only real big topic on it. You could find something in there. If I'd have found anything better myself, I would have linked to that instead.
I'll get on it!

EDIT: Sorry, not even Google is any help. The other forums I've just snooped in pretty much say the same things as we have already in past threads. No clear/official information can be found.
