Patch 1.0.2 is Out

maybe they'll have the game "patched" by the time it's worth $4.99?

HoMM V was a game by a new company. Sure, they didn't hit the spot with the first installment, but everyone has said they did a much better job on the second installment.

A wonderful game is continued and that's the bottom line...

As for the CE extras, I can get HoMM III and HoMM IV to install, but not HoMM IV: Winds of War. Plus, I tried to download some HoMM III maps and the game won't recognize them, so I had to play under my old HoMM III, in which they work just fine. So, I'm not sure why I paid the extra either. Now, the...

The Mage → The Defiant Mage

Heroic - You can visit the Skeleton dwelling, spell place, and +2 Att/Def and take the Necro town on the eighth day (before it can hire creatures). It took me 7/8 times to get Summon Phoenix. Hopefully others will be more lucky. G (-: Havez is a good secondary hero for this map and any Necro hero fo...

The Ranger - The Vampire Lord

I've played this map on 1.2 and I would suggest rushing the middle necro town as soon as possible (when possible). Once I knocked that town out, I wasn't bothered underground. In addition, I was able to avoid Vlad while I cleared the spectral dragons (I had instant travel too, which helped getting t...

I agree. This is good news. It is nice to see the signs that this series might survive for a few more years. G (-:

yeah, I've beaten it on Heroic twice (once on 1.1 and once on 1.2). it's a tough battle for sure but beatable. you just have to figure out the AI's strategy/tendancies. first time i beat them i ran the whole time (knocking off and losing castles) until i found the town next to the dragon utopia and ...

I went up to the second garrison and he scared them. I don't know what triggered it, but more troops sounds good. I never went underground (I don't think). The stand-alone map...while ok, left me wanting. I've only played it once.

I mostly only played XL maps, but there were 5-10 good maps for HoMM III and HoMM IV that were playermade...but of course there are about 500-1000 playermade maps...it's still worth it though to find those 5-10.

The Ranger - The Defense

I think they've changed some things Maltz...I've played this map a couple of times throughout the patches and I don't remember having to leave Findan in for the first two Purple heroes either. But now they whittle enough of your forces down that you can't survive the later heroes. Yeah, when you get...

Lethos is the key. If you can keep him off your butt long enough. I've been able to beat this map twice, but with certain bit of luck. First time I ran like a little school girl to the castle nearest the dragon utopia (in a round about manner and Lethos didn't come for me. I was left alone in this c...

Ok, I'm on this mission in 1.2 also on Heroic difficulty. First, you wait a turn and grab the money chest. Then, verify that the purple hero bought a dragon (meaning you don't have to purchase a dragon dwelling). If not, restart. You can't hold back your Dragons because the Necro army destroyed me w...
