Real warriors ON HORSES. Foot soldiers do not wear sabatons (metal feet coverings). For an obvious reason: they have to march. Which is the same reason why foot soldiers do not wear full plate. Oh and how about the Academy Mages? Matriarchs have a hard time marching because they wear platforms? How ...

Oh please. I picked Haven because everyone always raves about how it's the "standard." Being a foot soldier while wearing full plate on legs and feet is just as bad as wearing platform shoes. At least elves have the excuse of being elves. I'll give you horse armour. That still makes 2 impr...

I tried saving a multiplayer game with a buddy (so we can continue later), and the save seems to have disappeared.

Are HOMM5 multiplayer games not able to be saved???!?!?? 8|

Say it ain't so!

I do love it when people let you know where they stand from their 1st sentence.

Selective illiteracy FTW.

Aww, man... now I want Harpies in DE Dungeon too! Why didn't Nival finish the job right, and rip that off too?

But I guess all 7 tiers of Dungeon are good... nothing to replace... well, could have been a Neutral (recruitable in Dungeon campaigns).

I, for one, like Ivy. The Nagas should all look like her. And use her weapon instead of goddamn katanas. Then I'll be happy. These women have to walk 20-30 miles a day, every single day. And use magic! MAGIC! You want to start talking about impracticality instead of just design taste? You think hea...

Who's being biased because of nostalgia, now? H2 storyline was very cheesy. Not in a bad way. Archibald was your classic Saturday morning villain evil brother, intoning maliciously while twirling his mustache. The evil ending where he tosses his brother into a tower, with a " oh it's such an ee...

Haha, I think I know the fundamental disagreement now. I came from H2. I was expecting a basic storyline with cheesy delivery which are often (unintentionally) hilarious, with classic mythological and faery-tale creatures as bestiary. This is exactly what I got with H5. You came from H3-4, you were ...

Yup, our Nagas are different. They're Tau Samurai!

And this is the game all the H5 bashers are proclaiming as the next best HOMM storywise, before they even had a chance to play it.

That's your problem, certainly not of those people who provided their points for criticizing Ashan. I don't have a problem. I like the game that I bought, and I enjoyed the campaign immensely. But there are many good, objective reasons to diss Ashan in the form it was portrayed in Heroes V. Concept...

It's one unit in the entire faction, and people are trashing the entire Dungeon for it. Over. Reaction. I say one unit, because the Matriarch is a magic-user. As such, she can dress as impractically as she wishes. And this woman must really get your beef... http://www.evilcon.net/wordpress/wp-conten...

It's still better to take Enlightenment early, if you already know you want it. Because Enlightenment allows you to receive bonus exp for every battle and treasure chest.

Am I hyped for H6? When I first saw the pretty graphics, I was. But the more I learn about it, the less hyped I'm becoming. I re-bought H5 TotE because I couldn't wait for H6 (when I first heard about it), I was so hyped. Now I'm just glad I'm playing H5 again, and waiting for H6 no longer matter a...

That's just arguing semantics. Of course The Divine Comedy is just a novel/ epic poem, and not a part of the Bible. But it's so influential, it has become a part of the Christian mythological consciousness. Or are you going to deny that? Refuting Dante is like refuting Malory as having become the de...

I happen to keep a tab on WH videogames. Mark Of Chaos and Shadow Of The Horned Rat are the only WH videogames that exist (barring that other MMO), and neither feature any DE. The HOMM franchise's fundamental schtick is that it uses classic mythological and faery-tale creatures as its bestiary. As t...

That's my point.

My PC can handle full-3D town screen, UbiHole thinks it can't handle an 80%-screen 2D town window on a more modern (i.e. hopefully more efficient) game engine?

Have to agree with Dark Whisperer. Tiny town screens suck, and as long as you have a current PC, loading a H5 full-3D-flyby town takes approximate 1 second. Oh noes 1 second I feel my youth draining away. At least offer the option of different town window sizes, with the largest option covering 80% ...
