I'm sure if Ubi made an exact copy of Heroes 3 just in nice 3D, you'd be the first to cry about their lack of inspiration ;|

As for the caravan situation, is there any real news as to why it won't be needed? I only ask because Nival didn't think caravans were needed either, but because they were morons that couldn't see the big picture they had to be convinced as to why it was. I just hope this isn't another case of not ...

What's the definition of strategy game ?

Definately not KB. KB is about as strategic as a Doom-like ;|

Cast huge AE spell, use superdwagon-skill, send in the dragons, get to next fight.

It's not Black Hole that decides about the style. It's Ubisoft, and their main artist that sets the style for all other designs is Oliver Ledroit. You might notice that the new Necropolis designs are far closer to his work that the ones Nival did, so if there is a Naga faction in, I suppose the sty...

Aye, all the naga concepts were drawn by Olivier Ledroit and Adrian Smith for Nival for H5 (Remember the Naga Pavillion thingie in TotE ?). Tbh I don't see Ubisoft putting a Naga Geisha in a PEGI 12 game (without saying that it looks absolutely ugly). The arts by Adrian Smith were much better : http...

I find it amazing how people say it makes the game easier, less strategic when we've not seen how the game works. Who says there's any "crystallized blood dragon" mine ? (with such a name, a mine would be unlogical). This ressource could be obtained only by killing packs of mobs or looted ...

Ha! That's true! Which makes Vampire looks even more gay. Town converting is LAME. Done by the easiest way with no development at all. BANG! And Haven town is now Necropolis. Ha-ha, very funny. 1.

Blue Phoenixes? what are they smoking down there I wonder why are phoenixes connected to Moon now? Unless it is a dark magic spell it makes little sense for a summoned creature. If it is in a town, what town is it and if it is neutral why is its connection with the Moon so important? What is so bad...

3 tiers but still 7 kind of creatures per castle. Creatures of the same tier/category have similar stats but different abilities/roles. Each tier/category will have a shared "growth" pool. Say if you can buy 100 "core" creatures this wek, a Haven player could choose any mix of 10...

I agree. While I always loved the M&M games, I never liked their endings I think it just killed the whole plot

Elvin, so it`s highly possible that one of these siblings is demon Sovereign? :D I doubt it since the Archangel is trying to reunite all the brothers/sisters to fight against the Inferno.

I'm wondering if it's that much optionnal. 1. Option 1 : Only a mapmaker can decide whether it's on or off. If the mapmaker activates them, you'll have to play with them and iIf he doesn't you won't play with them. It would be stupid if 2 players playing one against the other and 1 decides to opt-ou...

I like the graphic direction the game has taken so far. Darker graphics and buildings/units/heroes looks less huge and less cartoonish. So far, it looks a bit more "realistic" (I hate this word for a game) but without losing its touch of magic.
