Academy Alternate Upgrades

The only one I don't like more than the original is the Storm Lord, and yes Battle Mage would have sounded better.

Dungeon Abilities Explained

Well here is hoping that you wouldn't just charge in with the Stalkers alone, using your invis units to strategically pick off THEIR advancing army, charging with all of your forces so it isn't isolate, or sneaking up on shooters would be more effective.

ToE: Interview & New Screens

I think being able to adapt is far more strategic for gameplay. Realy sure needing to make a decision can be called that, but it would often be a shot in the dark as to who you are going to be facing. This way you don't blindly hope you pick the right one, because you can adapt to meet the situation.

Heroes V, Deconstructed

@Campaigner I would disagree on the Wii being the system that most targets casual gamers. The 360 seems to be the one the is throwing the most "pick up and play" games, most FPS, sports games, and Gears. Although at this point there are a larger amount of party games on the Wii, but there are a good...

Raelag seems to be one of the most important characters in the story, why hasn't he been confirmed?

Preview of the Sylvan Upgrades

Yeah, but to be fair these look different from the original unit as well. Just not that different from the original upgrade.

I personally love the new look and am more excited than before when I thought they were just going to add abilities and barely touch the model.

Tribes of the East Announced

With their native terrain being the steppe, I would see them more as Mongolians than Native Americans.

Doing away with creature specials is a bad idea, not balancing wise, but just for the lack of variety. Keeping each faction and their creatures unique, while maintaining a balance is indeed possible, it just requires a lot of effort.

Really being able to pretty much cross the field with every creature you have is really overpowered especially for only one wood. I would either limit its effect (50 percent increase) or increase its cost and rune level. Now what I think would be a good idea is to tie the effect of runes to a stat l...

Yeah, it may be a small hit, but its not like the Rune of Berserking isn't a great rune either.

Just Finished the HoF Campaign and...Wow

~Probable Spoilers~ I played through the original campaign awhile ago, and although it wasn't bad, I felt like it had a poorly done story and I didn't connect with any of the characters. About a week ago I finally decided to buy HoF, and I've just beaten the Campaign. I thought it was really well do...

Orson can be very very brutal and effective I agree, but he only has two advantages, and those advantages don't come into play for very long, or very often. For example starting with Vitality gives his Skeleton Archers more power, but this is only really useful at the beginning against ranged creatu...

I think that the resource cost of an Artifact should be determined by Knowledge. So Wizards with little Knowledge would have to pay a lot less for their weaker Artifacts, but the higher level Artifacts would cost a lot more. I think this balances out better than cost increase being determined by the...

The chances of Nival fixing everything are as close to zero as they can be. Still...its better to see what people would like to balance than to just to accept that it will never be fixed.

I can't stand the Sylvan faction. I had to put the difficulty level to easy in the campaign just so I could get through it fast so I didn't need to play as them for too long. I tried Fury of the Elements, but I just couldn't take it because I can't stand the Sylvan units or Heroes. I don't have a pr...

Most towns can counter any strategy, but the question is how hard is it to counter. I don't know of any strategy that works 100 percent of the time, but this seems to give the Academy its best shot.

I find there to be two heroes in the Academy: Havez, and everyone else. Havez should deffinitely go for a war machines route with more army based skills, but I believe every other hero benefits more from extra spells.

I agree it would be hard, but I think if they put a great deal of effort into it they could achieve it. For example (these aren't meticulously balanced they are just my ideas) whith the Necropolis. Vladimir, Kaspar, and Lucretia are all great heroes. Assuming we were to buff other heroes rather than...
