Empire Earth - Calamities


In Empire Earth, Calamities can be invoked by any player with the Prophet unit. Once a Prophet has enough power to unleash a Calamity, all the Prophet has to do is to select a target within range. Calamities affect both friendly and enemy units, except Hurricanes which do not harm allied ships. Calamities are devastating in early Epochs, but become less destructive in later Epochs as units become better armored and have more Hit Points. Temples provide protection against Calamities and all units within their range are unaffected by Calamities. Cybers are unaffected by all Calamities except Volcano.
