And think of it as more of a transformation/transition than just being helpless. Something like the way templars formed archons in Starcraft, for example.
As to the upgrades - if you knew the looks of the units a bit better the differences would be immensely obvious. Once you play a little bit it is easy to see the difference between the orc upgrades
Thanks for the response-I know you must have work to do. In any casy, I was under the impression that elves couldn't do anything back to their attackers. If this is the case-surely a battalion would be wiped out within that time period, with no heals or counter-attacking?
Also, you're right, they're very noticable upgrades indeed. Just much more so when you know what you're looking for, I suppose
