I ask for your pardon, if you can read the mind of Buffalo, I'm not able to do this and I do not usually take count of this odd. No, I cannot read his mind. I can, however, read his first two sentances: The swarm could show different colors in the creation bar depending on which glob is creating . ...

The enhancement of Strategic Elements in Globulation

It is perhaps unfortunate that globulation, as of now, lacks deep and compelling strategic elements.
