Bit harsh dude!

They aren't errors, they're bugs and we've been given a list in advance so we know they are already on the teams radar and manage our expectations when in game.

Instead of nit-picking, how about focus on the improvements like, I don't know... THE ENTIRE BRAND NEW FACTION?!?

I think my overall favorite feature of Erebor is that every unit has a designated purpose. Adding units like Grim Hammers, Traders, and Vault wardens really diversify the roster and move beyond the somewhat stale formula of pike+sword+archer+cav+monster in a really interesting way. I think this same principle could be applied to some of the pre-existing factions, particularly Gondor and Mordor.

I agree, but we're not going back to those factions for a while. Full steam ahead to new territories first, and then we'll see.
