Welcome Kael! I had the opportunity of playing FFH and I loved it! Owning both, Elemental and CiV, I have to say that for me it's a win-win situation, concerning Kael. I mean, FFH3 would have rocked, but he working on Elemental should be just as good!
BTW, I'm pretty sure we won't see anything like that Moiiska, at least not until he's officially working on the game in november and after 1.1, like it was announced. But, "at this point" (), I think this game is a matter of waiting and having patience. That's my thought at least.
