I like a lot of the troop rebalancing.

But may I say I do not like the Manti rebalancing at all. Makes them way less "special" to have. Myths look like they are turning into everyday run of the mill troops now and to me that brings the excitement out of them that the game possesses for them now.

May I suggest please not changing the Harpies or Mantis. They did not need to get stronger and cheaper to be made. They were perfect. OR if you feel they must be changed to balance out the other changes, then on all the myths changes, keep the stat changes but do not change how much favor each one costs. It just turns them into cheap toys now. Instead of the shocking great "OMG" "wow factor" they have now. And I'd like to keep that.

The main reason for rebalancing myth units is the fact they were built very rarely. In a game in which Greek deities, their according units and favour are one of the key features that makes Grepolis really 'Grepolis', the myth units actually had a very small role, because they weren't really any better than regular units (building 1 erinys was the same as building 50 slingers... EXACTLY the same - same attack power, same resources costs and a hell a lot of favour which could've been used for something better...). Making them cost less favour, more resources and slightly more powerful is something that's welcomed by the majority of the community. It might take away a little bit from the 'wow' factor, but it will actually get people to use these units to their advantage a bit more

Has this changelog taken affect? My olympic game quest is not working, prompts me to buy more gold instead of giving me one free one.
Should I contact support or should I wait for this to be fixed?
Cheers
