What did you do before they added wizards? This game isnt about wizards nor elites.
Personally i didnt like the fact they added dragons and wizards to begin with, but am happy they limited it so i can get back to real strategy for a change. Instead of facing entire armies of dragons, wizards, elites, now we can start seeing more balanced armies using the other neglected units for a change.
I never carried any more than 1 type anyways so does effect me much, i like using the other units. I have faced a few armies made up of nothing but elites and kind of takes a lot of strategy away from what the game was meant to be.
My personal opinion of course, sad to see you upset about it.
