old heroes feel, when is it coming back?

Just want to start by saying that I liked h2-h4, h5 was meh and h6 was too glitchy to play at all. i noticed black hole sunk into a black hole recently, and ubi has announced an expansion for h6. basically; what happened to NWC devs and are they ever going to return to the heroes franchise? the game...

Japan is Asia dude, haven't you heard already? :D being iranian, this always pisses me off. Although I do sense that you are utilizing, what some people call, sarcasm. I had hoped that a French developer, being European, would be more "cosmopolitan" and more in touch with how wonderful th...

It's sad really, the town has a nice theme, nice looking units and seems like their gameplay will be interesting.

Hopefully they will come to their senses, they probably won't though.

And I am not even going to comment on "jaguar warrior".

Let's see how the beta turns out in june..

naming of sanctuary units

Why do they get japanese names when upgraded? I will argue against this: 1. they have "normal" names when unupgraded. normal meaning that their names are in english and you can see in their name exactly what they are. "shark guard" is more along the lines of "halberdier"...

I'm afraid it's gunna be Haven, Inferno, Necropolis, Sylvan and Dungeon since the underground tileset has already been announced and no desert tileset has been announced (unless the mages decided to move to the jungle) I know they announced 6 tilesets (2 kinds of plains) but I'm guessing there will...

Everything sounded good except for going back to the round based format, I quite liked the initiative system, and the short campaigns. But maybe they will have more storytelling than just a short cutscene and text between the maps in the campaign, so it might work out fine. I just hope it has more p...

4 resources strikes me as a bit too low. The system from before was a bit too strange though. Of course, I would like to see a new system that would make me go "omgwtfCHANGE!". Maybe 4 resources and a magic pool that is replenished in an alternate fashion, not related to mines? One can arg...

1. I hope you do not mean all mines in the area. All non-neutral mines. A non-flagged mine would still require to be captured. My peeve was not about the actual ownership (although I addressed this in my other point) but rather about the vision. Well, why would you flag a mine in an area you're not...

I'm surprised nobody said Inferno. To me, this has always been a boring faction. They always had different units of a reddish tone, and when upgraded, they caught even more fire. Is everything red in hell? And I don't understand the Haven/Castle hate. This is a town which supposedly is medieval huma...

I totally agree. This has been one of my main arguments for a long time. In fact, I often find the use of mythological creatures a bit exaggerated. Maybe that is why the Haven/Castle towns are usually my favorite towns.. But yeah back on topic: less dragons. And please, no bone dragons for necro!

1. I hope you do not mean all mines in the area. I imagine the area of control is bigger than the vision revealed by capturing a new town. Gaining control of mines you have not seen just because you have captured a town nearby strikes me as weird. And I am not trying to use a realism argument, since...

UbiSoft Online Controversy

I hate this internet arrogance. I live in Stockholm, Sweden and not having an internet connection here is almost unheard of. Everyone I know has a broadband connection. BUT people on the countryside, in other countries or playing on computers other than their primary computer may not have an active ...

thanks for all the input and I'm sorry for the late answer! my late answer does not mean I did not enjoy the answers, they helped me a lot. here is how I beat the map: by default you are south and you ally is north. enemies are west and east. so I changed myself to west, ally to east, and enemies to...

my first attempt (or rather, 4-5 attempts) at heroic (TOE)

I was playing that map where you have a computer ally. it's a large map where you are red, (bot) allied to green (top) and fighting blue and yellow (left and right respectively). everyone had their own island, the ally islands were connected with two way teleporters and the map was very much symmetr...

No but it turns black when you end your turn and a message "It is Player X's turn" appears. Otherwise there is no way any of you could avoid taking a peek, even unintentional. it was like this way back when as well, right? I understand them trying to make some good but IMO it just backfir...

Hmm are you playing in Hot Seat? Because in that mode other player's turns (including AI) are blacked out so that you can't spy on the other player that way. is it just me or does this seem stupid? hot seat is played in the same room, so either I peek or I don't. It can't be black for him when he i...

heroes V not showing me computer moves

the screen is entirely black when I'm waiting for the cpu turns. this would not have been a problem if it weren't for my leisurely attitude. Yesterday I played a game only to realize that my town had been taken the day after. which to me, seems entirely stupid. no popup, and no sign of the computer ...

My point is that having never even played most of the factions how can you possibly discuss balance and alternate choices? For example, what's so obvious about the executioner/chief choice? I thought I was careful enough when I used words like "seem" and "think". But yes you are...

Probably because garrisons are rarely used. And besides, there are some maps with predefined garrisons which are there just to slow down the enemy and certainly not to get you more troops. So that feature would break them. doesn't that just seem like a case of bad design? I mean, they should be abl...
