Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Tearing the Veil

Suggestions, Emodemon (I know this was three months ago, but I'm just playing it now myself): 1) Make sure you have obscene amounts of gold and other resources when you end the first half of the map. This lets you build the town in the second half really quickly. 2) You start with a zillion dwelling...

GameSpot Gives Tribes a 5.5

>>> The review is like giving 5.5 to Star Wars digitally Mastered and scenes added version I would have. The added scenes were crap. But in my limited experience with the expansion, there's no way they could possibly give it a lower grade than 7 unless they are total morons. >>> Quote from review: "...

Time to taste the Tribes

Anyone else find the site on the map (Father Sky's Fury) where you can pay to "unlearn" a skill and get offered a new one? That could be really handy so that, say, Witch's Huts that offer "bad" skills are still useful, and if you get offered a bunch of useless skills at once you can get a do-over on...

Time to taste the Tribes

Just started playing last night. So far, so good. The Orcs are definitely interesting. Not sure they'll be my favorites, but there's no question they play a little differently due to the lack of magic.

Tribes of the East in October?

What I'd been hearing is the 28th ... just over 3 weeks from now. So there might be as much as a week for them to get it gold and still meet the September target. But Omega's got it right - release it when it's ready, so that we don't have to wait for v3.2 to make it playable. If that means a delay,...

A Diary and Some Maps

"Actually one would think that if you build any renegade structure then all of the structures should be renegade. It would not make sense to be able to mix them. In fact it should probably be establish when the city is placed on the map." Makes sense as an option for campaigns and story maps (one th...

A Diary and Some Maps

That appears to confirm that the Renegades are the alternates for Haven. No real surprise there - it would have been strange to make a third set of upgrades and have only two available in town.

I hope not. I've always hated RTS click-fests.

Academy Alternate Upgrades

FYI, ability list is up in English at the portal (mightandmagic.us.ubi.com). Combat Mage is listed as a caster (Magic Fist - presumably that means Fist of Wrath - and Dispel), but the stats posted in the forum give no spell points. Storm Lord is listed as a shooter, but the stats give him no shots. ...

"Combat mage" needs to be changed to "battle mage". That's just silly. But it looks great.

ToE: Interview & New Screens

For the alternate upgrades, I think it'd be best to have them as separate buildings, but both can be built at once (with a combined pool of troops per week, i.e. you can buy any combination of Imps, Familiars, and Quasits that add to 26, and the Imps can be upgraded later to either). Being able to c...

The Ranger - The Vampire Lord

maltz: I think the AI does use Summon Creature. In a game I played through, Nicolai was holed up in one of the towns with a sizable army (25 shadow dragons, 2500 skeleton archers, and everything in between), and then all of a sudden he had nothing (but not suddenly enough for me to be able to get th...

Sir_Toejam: I think Blueman's referring to on the combat screen, where a huge stack (say, skeleton archers) shows up as "1k" for anything between 1000 and 1999 rather than displaying the full number. Nothing to do with scouting.

I'm having trouble with the auto-update as well ... might have the wrong checksum listed, because I tried twice and both times it came up with the same checksum but not the one it said it was supposed to.

Looking Back at the Reviews

The small supply of multiplayer maps and lack of a map editor are the only things that really bother me about the game. I'd give the game about a 7.5 for now, and once there is a map editor and more custom maps there's a good chance it will move up to a 9 or 9.5. (For comparison purposes, H2 was abo...

> There is nothing wrong in giving heroes starting abilities that prevent them from reaching the ultimate. Ultimates are meant to be very hard to get, and only in ideal conditions. I agree with this, with just one caveat - the heroes who can't get the ultimate ability should in general be somewhat s...

Got it today at GameStop.

No luck just yet ... the local Best Buy stores are saying they won't have it until Friday, but GameStop had the regular edition in (and sold out well before I could get there). They told me they'd have the limited edition in tomorrow, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
