Pronunciation is just a matter of preference. I pronounce my own name differently depending on which language I speak.

Recommended Games: Suggestions?

I would recommend keeping track of Elemental: Fallen Enchantress, but since the release is still half a year away, it's not that relevant here.

Heroes VI Post-Poned Again

It is harder to make RMGs in HoMM than Civ. In Civ you can have pretty much any kind of terrain and it'll be ok, but in HoMM you need to be careful to balance the resources, monsters, terrain movement penalties, artifacts etc. for the game to be balanced for each player.

Heroes VI Post-Poned Again

I don't mind the lack of a random map generator, since there seems to be a map editor in the game (some screenshot showed it). That'll allow the community to make really good looking maps with great atmosphere.

Heroes VI Post-Poned Again

Wow. This is pretty impressive behavior. I'm starting to think maybe I should give HoMM VI a shot when it's finally released.

I was thinking about how the seven resource system would be best implemented, and I'm thinking that I would like the most if every faction had options to use any resource. Careful Linky, you are breaking all reasons you provide for defending the 4-resource system :rolleyes: Come on, it's not black ...

And there's the fact that taking them out instead of making them work better is something i'm against on a philosophical level in the first place. I simply don't understand this. Though I work so much with optimization and organisational tasks that having variables that serve no purpose is somethin...

Rock, Paper, Scissors has perfect balance, but i'd hardly say it has more strategic depth then a game with 300 choices, even if that game has only 2 OP strategies that will defeat anything else (thus less optimal choices then the 3 RPS has). But what's the point of having meaningless choices? It's ...

You can discuss the topic without having to make a big effort to shoot down everything I write point by point. As I'm sure you realize, me remembering Necromancer town resource requirements correctly is hardly relevant. It's not too enjoyable discussing when the tone is that aggressive. Anyway, the ...

The fights in Heroes games are always pretty straightforward. The game is won / lost on the adventure map. Having just four resources is probably a good thing. Simply slapping on extra resource types doesn't bring any added value. Additional resources bring with them a load of problems and complicat...

The reason why Haven / Castle was OK in the earlier Heroes was that they were the only faction that had such homogeneous units. It was Castle's thing. Everyone else had quite a lot of diversity. Other factions had good themes but the units themselves were very varied. The Demon faction is by far the...

Well, I kind of gave hope for Heroes after thinking of the quality or lack thereof of HoMMV. I doubt there's going to be a sixth addition to the franchise when this outing got such a poor reception, and even though HoMMV has improved with the Expansion, it's never going to be great. With this, I say...

Mod Section

To CH Staff: Could you please make the Mod section of the HV area a bit more comprehensible? The bullet point list there is really unintuitive if you want to check out what kinds of mods are available. Just to make sure we're on the same page (clever, isn't it? I made that one up myself ;) ), here's...

Gaidal, the problem is that once the map editor is released, all these modding topics get lost in the umpteenth pages. It would be a lot easier to have a separate modding forum, even if it wouldn't be *that* active.
