Re: Taking lessons from Heroes 3

The debacle that is Heroes 7 has lots of people talking about playing Heroes 3. Naturally that draws derision from some quarters who feel the Heroes 3 crowd are too stuck in old ways and keep comparing everything to Heroes 3. I, too, have spent some time thinking about the strengths of Heroes 3, an...

Re: Is it just me? or the AI is way too strong in campaign?

Don't have the game yet (waiting a few months for bugs to be eliminated hopefully, since I have little faith in the launch product), but situations like that usually imply the mission is one in which you're supposed to act way sooner. You usually don't' see them that early in a Heroes campaign, but ...

Re: The Beta: Impressions

Two more bugs/performance issues actually I forgot. 1. Minotaur retaliation is totally bugged. When you attempt to attack a minotaur, it always shows as "retaliation: no" - even if it can retaliate. Needless to say, with its preemptive retaliation, thats a huge error. Also, some no retalia...

Re: The Beta: Impressions

Okay I'm done with the beta. I still am able to play it, but there's very little more I feel like learning at the cost of playing this game. My computer is probably below the minimum to play the game, but the memory usage is insane. When the game boots up, i'ts using 2 Gigabytes of Ram immediately; ...

Re: The Beta: Impressions

Beta still works for me. I still keep getting the same computer vision bug. i randomly get vision of opponents turns, even though I have no ability to see that area of the map during my own term. It's a major bug - I know exactly where the opponent is, what their units are, etc. Awful. In all honest...

Re: The Beta: Impressions

Two more glitches found tonight: 1. Faced an army of 30 Gargoyles split into 3 groups of 10 with 7 wolves and 20 crossbowmen with a might hero (8 ATK). Quick Combat had the gargoyles winning in a total rout - 3 gargoyles dead, my entire army dead. An actual battle resulted in a clean sweep (no casua...

Re: The Beta: Impressions

Possible bug? I started a match on the 3 player large match as Dungeon. A few turns in, I randomly got full view of player 3 (red)'s turn, despite having no skills I could find that would enable such. I had no view of Player two (green), but player red i could see fully his turn. However, once red's...

Ah, my starting hero started with it. Okay that solves that. It doesn't solve the metamagic bug.

Re: The Beta: Impressions

I've played 1-5, but skipped 6. So I am aware of Heroes 3, which is my favorite of the series (still have my CDs of H3 and AB, though i've lost my copy of SOD).

But yes you get my point pretty well (although I wouldn't say H3 was balanced between the factions - a blast to play tho!)

Re: The Beta: Impressions

The cost of Colossus vs Titan also features a large jump - from like 5K+1resource to 7500+2 of one resource and 1 of another. I guess the idea is making it worth getting unupgraded units? Meh. --Sidenote, can we also talk about how stupid the renaming of resources is? You go back to the classic 7 re...

Re: The Beta: Impressions

I dropped the settings myself cjlee as much as I thought I could. I'm pretty sure I'm below minimum requirements fwiw. The FPS sucks, but it's playable. Impressions: Again my only completed game (on bad neighbors) involves Academy and a bug I'm pretty sure made metamagic too powerful (again, master ...

I have linked this topic to the developers so they can stop by and take a look when they have time.

Where the hell do I report bugs? The link on the main site links straight back to the beta main page instead of a place to submit bugs. It's a circle..... Are these things that I'm seeing as intended? 1. Mana regenerates completely for an academy magic hero after battle. I always have full mana goin...

Heroes VII Announced

Very disappointed that only one of Inferno/Dungeon would make it - both are more significant than Stronghold (Logicly you'd do one of stronghold/fortress instead of sylvan/fortress)

Agree on there should be a punishment for re-training imo.

Of note, can someone fully document the changes to the skill wheel? There are a ton more options, and some paths were changed.

Of note.....ultimates now require one less skill tree, though im not sure i like certain changes....

Mission 2 is disappointing a bit...i rushed Purple wiping him out fast, then just spent time building up till i had a strong army before i even went for the seer's huts to take on Green.

Just a question, are the witch huts random in the scenarios? In my play through on heroic, ive gotten dark, expert dark, and attack from them. Which is quite nice (On pace for level 24 ultimate). Also, one hut gave me the same thing as it did in my normal run-through. Are these nonrandom?

Re: Heroic only with Freny, PM, or Phantom forces?

Seriously , if you've quit on HMM -V for those reasons, its just plain silly. Maybe you're starting off on heroic your first time through, which might be too much for you if you aren't used to how to play each faction yet. But if thats the case, play it on normal. I mean, c'mon people. Actually, my...
