As someone who has been active in modding communities of multiple games, I'm very much aware of this. Going by knowledge from that same position though, I can't recall anyone ever getting reprimanded in any way for such an action. The point is, maps are just that: maps. Any half-decent modder will b...

I voted 'not unhappy', because though the change has downsides, the good far outweighs the bad for me. In H3 Skirmish you could often spent the entire game before obtaining income for every single existing resource, which makes competitive play a bit of a gamble. In H6, regardless of what happens, y...

Technically, maybe, though I'd doubt even that. Regardless, I don't think Ubisoft is ever going to care about it (as long as people don't use their files to create an entirely new game and sell it for money, which no one ever does anyway). By extracting just the maps you're still miles away from a p...

I hereby call dibs on the nickname 'Fifty Shades of Purple'.

It is indeed quite over the top if you ask me.

More like insufficient budget, poor prioritiy plans and unexpected or overlooked issues comes at the cost of less factios/content. They definitely had their reasons and the expansions do add actual content in terms of story and such, but the realization I had still made me kind of sad. The biggest ...

Do You Still Play?

Not really, I guess. Still want to finish up the campaigns (played 4 of them through up to map 3, 4 or 5) but never seem to get around to it.

Sudden realization: Ubisoft is releasing sequels to a game with less races than its predecessors and then asks money for expansion packs that add those races back in.

CH Heroes VI Review

Not sure if this has been said yet, but your argument regarding not playing the campaign is flawed. It's entirely possible and even quite realistic that you didn't play through the rest of the campaigns because the GAME wasn't as enticing. You may have loved the story but disliked the gameplay compl...

This is a windowed mode error that also used to show up when you alt-tab. Play full screen and don't tab out and it should work normally.

Ubi to Develop More Free-To-Play Games

"I've never read about a company that is so obsessed with piracy. They would rather fight with pirates instead of making a good game. I wish they would understand few people want to download their crappy games. " This. Ubi officials really don't understand the concept of piracy. I'll repeat myself a...

Wait, they actually announced something new? I avoided the Ubisoft stand all together because it seemed like there was zero interesting stuff going on there. Tbf, lookin at those screenshots, I was right - it seems like another money-milking rehash of that Heroes online game that already exists. I r...

Re: Lore timeline

1. World from HV and HVI - Ashan - is in new universe - it has new story, new timeline, new factions histoty, new mythology, etc. This is same pattern like in remakes - to take known title and tell new story, without any connection to old title (besaide tilte itself). Ahhhhh! That suddenly clears u...

Lore timeline

Hey folks! I'm not sure if this is the right board, but nothing I saw on the main page would really fit the subject. What I'm looking for is some cut & clear information on the (up to date) lore of the Heroes of Might & Magic universe. My problem is that the whole world seems kind of confusi...

I think you can disable the cloud synchronisation, but afaik you lose all your current savegames and playing offline stops your account from gaining any experience and use the dynasty perks and weapons properly along with that. As hilarious as this might sound, the most effective way to play the gam...

It's amazing how quickly Ubisoft can get your mind changed about them for the worse. Yesterday I was all happy about getting back into the game and not being bothered by the savegame bug and ended up playing 3 hours into a new campaign. Today they happily announced they fixed the pre-1.5 bug, which ...

Maybe once I hear more. Little story explaining my choice: After pretty much quitting the game for a month or two, I reinstalled my PC. This means my installed copy of Heroes 6 was borked and I also had to reinstall the game, something a pall reminded me off when he bought it himself two days ago. A...

I mostly tend to like the final battles in maps. Those very last end clashes with the last enemy hero/town. These battles don't need to be huge per se, but the point is that because you're finally 'allowed' to lose troops (since losing troops isn't going to make a difference for further battles), su...

Alt-Tabbing

That's new. A couple of months back alt-tabbing simply caused my mouse to dislocate from its cursor, meaning that I had to place the cursor such as to appear above a button in order to actually click said button.
