Hey, while looking at the troops for Raids, I had a sudden realization. Shouldn’t the Bat Swarm troop be Beast and Undead? Bare with me here:
The bat transforms into Nosferatu (a vampire, which is an Undead creature) and in turn, he can transform into the Umberwolf (also, an Undead creature).
So, how can the Bat not be Undead too? By leaving the Bat just a Beast, you are basically saying that a Live Bat can transform into an Undead creature, that can then transform into a Live creature/bat again.
That goes against Undead mythology, as a whole. The reason it’s called Undead is because they are “living” Dead. But, they aren’t actually alive, in the same way a Human troop would be, or a Beast one, or whatever.
So, yeah, Bat Swarm should be Undead. Is it a huge deal? I suppose, not really, but it does effect team bonuses and also would effect any “create a mix of Color A and Color B” hero weapon that boosts based off of Undead and you wanted to use the Bat Swarm in your team.
I know I’m “nerding out” a bit here, but next to Dragons, Undead stuff is like my favorite thing (and troop type). So, I’m just trying to give the Bat troop a fair shake and such.
