    What I find a bit bothersome is that when you traverse down a hybrid affinity, not only do you get new units, but you also get the "pure" affinity units.

    What would be cool is if when you get a hybrid affinity unit you no longer get the "pure" affinity unit (or they convert over to the hybrid).

    For example once I can get an "Aquillion" I can no longer get a SABR unit, or I get a different unit in place of SABR.

    This would require dynamic adjustment of Tech Tree and may be beyond scope of scripting.

    Honestly, I would prefer removing the hybrid affinities and making the core affinities more unique and more interesting.

    I think the answer is you can't build the comparable opposing unit once you've accepted a tier upgrade. You can keep anything you already have; any that are in build queues update to the new unit.

    This would not only allow hybrids to be more of "their own thing", but also prevent someone from building all the various affinity units later in the game.

    You make a commitment and at tier upgrade would be a perfect time to make it meaningful. I really like this idea.
