Orc is shorter word than Trpll or Oqre, thus lower probability for spelling mistakes. Spelling mistakes annoy the fans, you know.

JJ You realize that I am not arguing against the good/evil point, right? I absolutely agree that the good/evil is decided by which hero player/mapmaker *choses* and how he plays. My point is, as you put it: society vs alliance. In alliance the player/mapmaker can again *chose* the leading nation. In...

This is true BOTH ways, Zam. Something that is ALWAYS and per definition evil is just as boring as something that's per definition good. So the best is GREY, because grey can either become black or white, and in the world of Homm (and probably in reality as well) it depends on the so-called leaders...

That sounds more like a TELEPORT function for me. I mean, they sure can't crack walls with Goblins and I don't see how they will be able to hit something like a Dragon with Goblins and doing damage. Moreover,, how many Goblins will you fire this way. Let's say you have a dozen Cyclopses , level 7 c...

A town full of the same creatures? Like what? Inferno? Or Necropolis? Haven? Sure, but in H 2 there was one more human creature and the town is like the one in H 3. I would argue that it is not the dry nummerical count of one species creatures or the percent of them. It is more that the theme of th...

Why continue a senseless debate about what caused this company or that company to act this way or release a game this way? Isn't the knowledge about the cause necessary for finding a cure? Can we now move on to discussing how they are remedying the situation and if that is adequate to make the game...

I understand why you are saying this, but it is not as dangerous as it may seem. Did you actually try it? Not really. I usually avoid ghosts in my army since they tend to make the game boring :) Question: Armageddons blade is not a combination artifact that can be made by gathering the pieces. Acco...

What about using a "Miror Image" on yr stack(s) to be consumated by not so large stack of enemy ghosts in your later favour - so being devoured gratefully by your ghosts ? Having haunt mine and mirror image would be a nice combo. But haunt mine isn't that common spell in guilds and in first fights ...

What does Nival have to do with the fact that communist Russia dominated parts of Eastern Europe until 1989? Should they make stickers on their products with an apology for being part of a country that may have failed in the past? Perhaps they could start with NOT including WW2 tanks and planes int...

Um, yes, current. And you are absolutely prohibited to post your all-time favourites. Or did the thread starter mean it vice versa? Feel free to puzzle about this important problem all day along :)

What about Best Album or Best Song categories? Not to mention Currently Listening or Best Band of the last decade?

There are many names and not sure in which order and how many should be named in order to be politically correct, but if you need just 5 then perhaps:

Sirenia
Epica
Therion
Nightwish
Stratovarius

Well, I see that HP policy has been to accept everything that can be played by any Homm game. And it does not really matter is it the author who is submitting or someone else.I cannot say that I am a big fan of such system, but I admit it has its good sides. Yet I think that when downloading a map f...

Starbatron, and what about readmes that consist only advertisment to the site? On all other sites, readmes list the map info, *not only the author* but also credits to playtesters and possible spoilers to those who may get stuck. Even more, some maps (WoG) use external files, like custom protrairs f...

From their shop it looks like they even sell CDs with the maps.

Even if they have a link to CH (I could not find any links to other Homm sites) , i would recommend removing their name from the CH Homm sites/links list.

Edit: and certainly ban all IPs from Kiev :devil:
