I'd say it is more complex. Conflux starting armies are good and at days 1-4 they should be at least a fair match to any other town. Firebird is the cheapest (with behemoth) lvl7 unit with not the most valuable upgrade. Phoenix gains +33% health, +6 to already good speed, +3 attack and a special that requires them to die. IMO most other lvl7s have more valuable upgrades. Hence, the era of unupgraded lvl7 should be again time for conlux to press on. Only when the game is not decided before upgraded lvl7 start to accumulate it is conflux time to wait and hope for its superior weekly HP output.
