I don't understand why you guys hate it so much. It's perfectly consistent with the story, it's intriguing, and it looks aesthetically appealing. I feel like there was no winning the hearts of some...

Celestial Heavens Under New Management

I'm deeply sad to see Angelspit taking a leave, and I wish the best of luck to him. I'm a long time member/lurker and it's thanks to Angelspit that Celestial Heavens is my home and reference wrt all things might and magic. Again, thank you Angelspit for your efforts, your time and your love that you...

Heroes VI Combat Video

I definitely love that now we can see the movement trail on battlefield! This is such a critical improvement! On the other hand, I really don't like the fact that the first hero to act will be decided by the first creature to act. They really should randomize who gets to move first, still taking int...

Waterfalls Observatory

@michiganjf: Look right above the circle on the rock splitting the waterfall. In this 2D view, the observatory is just on the right of the bridge. By the way, the little wooden orcish tower on the very lefthand side would make a better observatory as it has a higher ground... I really like the depth...

I don't like it either but with the new lore they created in this new world of Ashan, it makes sense. Orcs: Demon experiment went awry. It's hard to swallow, I know...

Heroes VI Haven Town

It is a fort alright. I think it's where the control areas are centered... Btw, is this control area thingy similar to Disciples III?

Heroes VI Jaguar Warrior

One of the best incarnations of being void of ideas, which I've seen too many times in this game so far. Plus, what's with associating Orcs with Middle/South American natives???

Mods do not change original game files, you just put them in the UserMods folder and voila! If you don't like one, quit the game and delete the mod file(s) and restart the game! I don't know what you mean by "affected all my maps"???

I finished playing the original campaigns with TotE. It was much more fun! Caravans make it easier to play but not to win :) I didn't see alternative upgrades saving my 455 either... My only complaint was that the AI was sometimes stupider and made the win easier. I had a couple of irreproducible bu...

Necro win is a longer stretch as they don't have high initiative. Champions and Seraphs will crush your army before you even move. Sheer numbers might help Necro out but Sylvan has much better a chance imo. Even Haven vs. Haven has better chances imo, which also has Dark magic at disposal.

Yeah, I agree that Sylvan+Wyngaal is your key to victory. I also suppose you can win with Necro+Deirdre (or Vladimir) but Sylvan victory would be easier. 1) Attack: Archery+Battle Frenzy or Flaming Arrows (Flaming Arrows is very neat with Triple Ballista. However, if you go for Leadership, you reall...

Well, considering that there are more spells and an area spell that freezes all targets I select master of ice much more often. It's definitely not fair to master of storms. I think they could make chain lightning to stun all targets at decreasing levels, and/or make it skip friendly units. This way...

The choice is very much situational, and really though... I went with cleansing as it's always useful... My other favorites are wasp swarm, regeneration and decay...

Btw, is lightning's stun better than ice bolt's freeze?
