No random skills, only one special resource, and other changes are things i don't like. These, especially, are the things I do like. Random skills make luck a big factor, as do several resources. Black Hole wanted to make the game more competitive, and this is exactly the way to do so. I, for one, ...

I don't want to play the same game either, but my vision is of improvement and addition over the existing material (since the existing material is excellent), rather than radical change and erasure of foundations. Also my thoughts. With simple games, developers need to change everything because the...

Those bastards are working on delivering you a good game. no, they're working on delivering a game that sells good. it is clear in many aspects and i won't go into details. kind of like starwars episode I-III. If I like the game, I buy it. If I dislike, I don't buy it. But there is no point in pira...

Interesting point....but the problem evolves that Hero will easily become a main target of enemy. In the begining, that'll be very annoying if our heroes easily be killed. Of course, there are some issues that need to be fixed. But that's what designers are supposed to be paid for. I don't pay for ...

I'm not sure what you mean. You're asking whether it will run any better, since it looks similar to H5? For once thing, H5 spent lots of resources on enabling players to pan the camera, turn the view and render all objects from several angles. I'm convinced that if they cut that, as well as make th...

Town portal... only makes sense as an expensive, late game structure. Otherwise, it is strategy-killing. Now (it seems that) you will be able to defend all your cities with just one hero. Less strategy. It sounds funny how all the preview is spent telling us that this thing and this other thing work...

Re: What this game really needs

To be successful, it needs: 1) Lightweight engine This is not Crysis. Heroes V had a fat, unjustified horribly heavy engine. I have an Intel I7, a 9800GT and 4gb of ram and the game sometimes still suffers from hiccups when certain spells are cast Heroes6 should be much lighter. 2) Good AI Scriptin...

My point is they changed so much they should drop heroes from the name entirely and let the new game stand on its own merits and not use the heroes franchise to cling to survival. I recall the same thing being said of HoMM IV back in the day. Did/Would you agree with them? I sure as heck didn't, an...

As usual, it would have to be balanced. I think this thread is not a place to balance the potential skill (we can do in a new thread ;) ) but as always it would be a choice. For wizards, it would be more powerful spells or bigger army. For warriors, it would be more powerful soldiers or a bigger army.

3-They are reinventing the wheel instead of expanding Heroes V in an evolutionary way. How do you know if they are reinventing the wheel? I don't know, because I have not seen the game yet. But that's the impression I am getting from what we are seeing, and I hope I am wrong. There are a number of ...

It will be interesting to see the top 3 and worst 3 lists after people play the demo. Right now, for me: Best: 1-There is a HoMM6 2-Old world heroes appear in the story 3-Paul Romero is back Worst: 1-Is called MM:H6 2-It (seems to be) less strategic, less varied, and dumbed down 3-They are reinventi...

There's a reason why SC2 only has 3 races... and why they took out ha;f the stuff they wanted to do during development... Balance = blandness...

HoMM3 is a very good game. I still play it from time to time after 12 years. But IMHO it lacks a few things that would make it an even better Fantasy TBS game: - Research - Upkeep (both in army and town buildings) - Storage room (so you can't just acumulate infinite resources. You need to have place...

I don't mind a few Amazons, but their approach is blatantly deliberate. Why did they need to turn the Centaurs into females? Well, to fill the female quota for Stronghold, that's why. There are similar cases in all factions and frankly only Inferno looks OK at the moment in this regard. And even if...

They have, however dumped several long-standing elements in favour of some new RP elements (cutting 3 rare resources, only 4 speciality buildings per faction, and only two per town, creatures no longer affect movements speed at all, etc.) But did they do it to make the game worse, or because a grou...
