> I think Flamers of Hate would be more relevant to message boards. ;)

How 'bout "Spammers of Hate"? :P

Doh; stupid extra comment.

Anyways, I'm glad they're bringing caravans back... and dare we hope for a complete return of alternate upgrade routes...?

@CloudRiderX
Once again, I see on the top of the box, it says "Might and Magic" and then "Heroes V"............people new to the series might get confused about what is Might and Magic versus Heroes of Might and Magic.

Oh how true, I never noticed that before, stupid me! But you are right CRX, that can make one think it is from the M&M series and not from HOMM... Wonder why UBI hasn't taken notice of this.. Who is in control of making the box covers anyway?

After reading few interviews with people from Ubisoft, I think it's just their marketing strategy. They want for some reason to highlight "Might and Magic", maybe to support their other games that have it in the title, like Dark Messiah... They think that this will cause more people buying games from that "series".

I'm surprised nobody mentioned the parachute pants yet... I thought the kids out there would all go WTF-ing.

I just checked out http://int.games.1c.ru/battlelord/ - looks like a poor mans attempt at an H5 rip off. Still it might be fun......

I actually think that battlelord looks more like H5 than anything thus far....



check out this as well, from the same page: http://konung.1c.ru/eng/ and http://int.games.1c.ru/mythic_wars/.

The abbreviation HoF will forever remind me of 'Hand of Fate', one of the old Kyrandia games.
