With the huge number of units in the game, I'm wondering what the process was for evaluating if any units are too similar. It seems like a shame if two units were functional equivalents of each other. I thought of this after watching the beasts of war video; Odysseus seemed very unique.
Looking at Odysseus vs some of the other heroes, Agamemnon seemed to have very similar attributes (3 RP, 5 attack, 6 defense, bolster, leader, abilities that impact card drawing and activation) - Odysseus has 2 range, so a big difference there.
After another look, the Colchis Bull & Calydonian Boar also appear quite similar. (3 RP, 7 attack, 9v8 defense, 7v8 vitality, charge attack, area attack). A 3 vs 4 difference in activation cards seems meaningful.
Since I haven't played a full game, I'm not sure how much the subtle differences in these units will change the way they play. The reason I am asking is I love the variety, I just would hate it if some character never got picked because there was a similar, but better, character. I.e. never draft Colchis Bull because the Calydonian Boar is basically the same unit but faster (and that would be sad - I'd have to paint the boar ugly to make people want to avoid him to even things out).
