I was wondering. For the Kraken, can it stay underwater and then attack? Since most elves have hide I was wondering if this would count. Maybe do something like stay underwater but after you go up(most likely for a surprise attack) but you wont be able to go back down until the enemy is out of range and have a cooldown for it. Also for the Turtle Ship, if the turtle ship dies(even though i bet it has nice defense and HP) will the units die as well or will they have a time limit until they drown? Maybe the Greater/Lesser Carrack ships can pick them up if they get there fast enough.
Stuck between elves and humans. I hope they add Dwarfs in the first DLC, I want a strong defensive city.
