I do wonder why people choose not to play Equilibris. I practically can see no downside to it, and in hindsight, I appreciate Equilibris even more considering some vast incosistencies of Heroes IV, such as the grossly overpowered necromancy skill.
1) Unless I use an official version, my results can't be considered "valid" for discussion about Heroes. It simply is a different game, plain and simple. It might be a better game, possibly, but it's not "it". I mean, if I use Equilibris, I could just as well use a modification "Heroes With Immportal Human Players"...
2) I strongly dislike the attitude of Equilibris creators: "XYZ is too strong, let's solve it by weakening it". In my opinion, the only correct way to fix these unballancing issues, is to make the weak tactics stronger, not make the strong tactics weaker. Which is, by the way, the chief reason I stopped playing Magic the Gathering after 4th Edition - the evolution of the game pretty much turned into "let's see what works so we can create counters for it".
3) Balance isn't really that much an issue for me. I find my challenges in different areas.
