The Coral Priestess *is* a Medusa which is half-woman half-snake creature (in mythology she was originally an extremely beautiful woman that inspired the lusts of a god). So no *justification* needed, the creatures have breasts when it makes sense that they would. Except that it doesn't have a dead...

Do you not know what a Moor is?! Yes, but Moors are from around Morocco, they've got Berber and Arabic Blood in, as well as Black-African. Yeah, that's why cosmetic surgery is doing so badly, because all our females have very round chests. Look at female body builders, once there isn't enough fat t...

Only if it has moorish ancestry. Brown skin and black hair, could be Indian I suppose, or half-African. Regardless, the Archer still looks more 'elfy' than the actual elf. That's just because they're not as self conscious about any droopiness... they still technically have them. And because you cou...

Yeah, it's not like Humans have blonde hair, or the elf is actually in another town (and is actually not very nordic): http://www.celestialheavens.com/homm2/images/creatures/h2_sorc_elf.jpg Oh look, a Spanish elf.

Yeah, sure... but if you have any male friends that wear that type of shirt... well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IH0lFGBYRtU Sound card's broken at the moment, so I can't do much with that, but, looking at the heroes, you maybe right, all of the 'female' genies do have an obvious 'pigtail', whil...

Yeah, it's not like they had bras or anything: http://hommworld.net/Homm3/Tower/bGenie.gif Always seemed more like a short vest to me. Yeah, i love the argument that it's ok for females to be in a certain role as long as there's only very few of them... jeez. I'm not against females in fantasy (pro...

Firstly, the original poster is quite wrong, there were quite a few female units in HOMMIII too. Medusae, Harpies, Nagas, Genies, Pegasus Riders, (arguably) Wraiths, Water/Ice Elementals... Not to mention many female heroes as well. You know, I never got the impression that Genies were female, and ...

Re: No Blackies = please no Dungeon

For me, the Dungeon died with Heroes V. All that catering to the masses with the (thanks to Salvatore) popular dark elves, replacing all but 3 units of the faction... Dungeon was and should be about warlocks leading armies of monsters created/enslaved by them, with the Black Dragons at the forefron...

Yeah, just like not having orcs in H5 vanilla irritated fans.

If you have to make everything glowy to get it noticed, then the terrain is too big. Or your items are poorly designed. The thing a lot of us like about 3 (and the previous versions) is that the interface was simple and clean, allowing you to focus on strategy. I was talking about stuff on the map,...

These, especially, are the things I do like. Random skills make luck a big factor, as do several resources. Black Hole wanted to make the game more competitive, and this is exactly the way to do so. Except that they haven't apparently touched variable creature damage, which is one of the most rando...

Unlikely, orcs had been in every game up to H5 as well, and then got slated for the second expansion.

It'd be better if they'd kept the 'paper doll' artefact placement screen IMO.

I don't think anyone's ever going to count infernopolis, because for one thing, you could only get 5 creatures from any one town, and for another it was an absolute abomination.

No need to go that extreme, but 3-4 different creatures would have been nice (I don't think many people would have complained about the Ghoul and the Fate Spinner replacing the Zombie and the Bone Dragon in H5).

The Necro creatures in H2 were Skeleton, Zombie, Mummy, Vampire, Lich, Bone Dragon, in H5 they were Skeleton, Zombie, Ghost, vampire, Lich, Wight and Bone Dragon. 2 creatures different, and one of them is because a tier was gained in H3, so, yes, not a huge load of development.

Same for Necropolis, only a little better for Haven (Angel and Gryphon were new to H3) and Sylvan, etc.

Great, this guy gets a couple of extra arms, but the Cerberus has to hand one of its heads to the Hellhound to make up the difference. Not that I have any complaints about a 4 armed Naga you understand, if fact it makes perfect sense biologically, with the tail as a motive system the legs can become...

The poll is 'which are you most excited about', not 'which do you prefer', so how they actually play doesn't come into it.
