Re: Stuck on Necromancer - Thoughts and intentions

Oh damn, the broken script must have happened after the 1.8 patch. I played the Necro campaign at or before 1.8.

Can't remember what level I got Adar Malik to previously, but he was definitely a strong hero by the time of this map. Also I never got hit by chain lightning.

Re: Your favorite magic school(s) H4

Good summary. Thats why it always make me laugh when solo players present their brilliant technique like "I summon x devils and cast at them dragon strength" or something like that. Imagine if AI could be like very average online human player - he wouldn't wait for you on his side of map ...

Re: Your favorite magic school(s) H4

I like 2 have 4-7 heroes in my army. My favorite combo would have 2 B death & nature.I find the summoning demons and nature creatures can be overpowering and has saved my bacon in many a battles Have you tried online game? It makes 180 degrees change in thinking about gameplay. I think most of ...

Re: Stuck on Necromancer - Thoughts and intentions

I played on the hardest difficulty, and in my own walkthrough http://www.celestialheavens.com/forum/22/16039 I thought it was nearly as difficult as the average Heroes 2 campaign map. I didn't play this campaign on the final patch 2.21 so it is possible they made some changes. Firstly, make a beelin...

Re: World Championship 2016 Heroes 4 online

Re: H3 Some Mapmaking Questions

Visiting hero means whether the hero is in the garrison or standing at the castle doorstep. (Heroes outside, are physically placed by the icon.) IIRC validate map means they check for obvious mistakes. It is not just allowed to ask for play testers; it is encouraged. Lots of people in the community ...

Re: [H3] Any tips for South of Hell at 200%

I played it so long ago, please excuse me for any mistaken memories: 1) you should take control of the AI ally. If you don't, these guys are just useless. 2) Wizard is great because of their spells. On this map Expert Earth Magic and Town Portal is a must. 3) Letting them attack you is absolutely no...

Re: Trial By Fire - The Dwarf expansion

by now haven't you realized that Ubisoft cannot be trusted to produce anything usable?

I've always said, I really welcome people who disagree with me and love Heroes VII.

These people are the one who will mod the game until we all love it.

Re: Trial By Fire - The Dwarf expansion

I have been reading many good comments about the Russian balance mod for H7. Thanks to these messianic Russians (and not these evil Ubisoft Frenchmen), the world is saved. I was seriously thinking about getting Trial By Fire. Then I found that I could not get it cheap anymore. A few months ago, Tria...

Re: HOMM3 Stronghold: Tips on Using Cyclops?

For some things, you need to do in practice before you read the theory. Only when you have played and seen enough maps of all kinds and sizes, do you have a feel for the possibilities of any map. Sure, by all means collect all the tips and strategies you want. There’s nothing stopping you from spend...

Re: Some ideas on 3D in Heroes that I hope modders will take up on.

I know I’d posted my ‘last post’ earlier, but I got some new inspirations so I’ll contribute them here. I very seriously hope my ideas will be taken up. Firstly, to fix the ridiculous Initiative system. I’m tired of the nonsense where mass haste, leadership and divine guidance (or some other equival...

I am writing to articulate my wish for a smarter Heroes game. I have played more Heroes, than some toddlers have lived.

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5 (unofficial)

I've always been a fan of intelligent play, not artificially raising difficulty via vast numbers. I could make my own mod where every mine is guarded by 1000 titans, but that doesn't make it a good mod just because it is difficult. In fact, I was only just discussing ways to make Heroes games more c...

just to follow up by observing hero classes that worked: Sylvan Druid The Avenger ability was not that crucial to Sylvan Survival to begin with. You don't get to Avenge until after you have killed 2 populations of the enemy, and you can only list a max of 3 enemies, and you need to have an Avenger's...
