Really? Seriously?
These are the ones from the CE?
Started to wonder why i didn't receive anything yet!
So NO new maps for me :disagree: ...

I love this game soooo much... but after the editor issue, the new patch and finally, this small final cherry on the cake, my patience is stretched to a very limit!

For those (like myself) who have the regular edition, so we just drop that file in the Heroes 5 directory and unzip, or is there something else to do?

You don't even need to unzip … just put the file in your H5 data folder.

So I downloaded from Elrath.com and unzipped it to my heroesv/data folder.

As far as I can see there is one new map, "refugee". I already have the other one from patch 1.2 so that doesn't make much sense to include it as part of two new maps.

Well my patience is wearing thin, I'm waiting for the map editor now.

This is such a joke! Why did those of us who bought the Limited Edition even bother to do so if Ubi was going to give away these maps for free 2 months later? In essense, we spent an extra $10 for nothing now. :disagree:

I kind of agree, but well, the three extra maps is not what I'm most pleased about with my CE anyway. H2 and the extra reference material is stuff I'm more likely to have some use of in the future ;)

So, when will they will try to offer two more "new" maps for the end of August in which one of them will be the other one everyone already has from Patch 1.2 (War of the Worlds).

Well, this isn't good, is it... It seems a variety of forums all have disappointed members dissing Ubi over this.

I think they definitely need to rebuild their confidence by doing something very good. Like releasing several new maps - perhaps test maps they have built to test the editor? That'd be nice.

or putting all their efforts into finishing and releasing the map editor, then everyone can make their own maps... it almost feels like they are stalling releasing the map editor...as if.... as if we had the editor, we wouldnt be jumping up and down at Ubivals feet like puppy dogs waiting for new maps....thats what it feels like to me...
