Since it was going to be an RTS originally, I doubt it would have come anywhere near a M&M RPG. The genres are simply too far apart to translate well.

Generating your own dynasty, dynasty heroes, etc., will you be able to play your regular maps (or even the campaign) using your dynasty features?

It depends on the artifact. Some are additive (30% + 10% = 40%) and others are multiplicative (30% "+" 10% = 33%). I believe the necromancy artifacts are all additive, with a 100% cap (you can't raise more HP/creatures then there originally are)

Most 7th level creatures should be built ASAP, to start stockpiling them, even if you don't use them immediately. Also, you can afford not to upgrade something, since the level 2 magic guild will almost certainly have some direct damage to use, and a mana vortex is also useful for Dungeon. The upgra...

If online is *REQUIRED* then I won't even consider buying it. Even if I agreed with all their reasons, and supported it (which I don't), there is still the fact that if my ISP goes down (which it has an annoying habit of doing), then I will be unable to play, and if it goes down while playing, I'll ...

why build wyverns if gorgons can do everything wyverns can do but better? If possible, I build wyverns on day 3 or 4. 6 wyverns at the start of week 2 is usually enough all by themselves to clear everything without losses (particularly if you have haste or slow, and take a dragonfly for first actio...

AI will surely not appreciate the work around!


The only problem with this is if you want to play a random map (although creating the random in the editor, rather than on the fly can fix this as well)

Re: [H3] Is there a way to change difficulty mid-game ?

Hello, Does anyone know a way to do this, such as editing the savegame file ? I usually play on Hard, or Normal when I'm lazy, but I now feel that Normal is too easy and I almost never lose on that difficulty. I think I would like to play against Expert or Impossible AI but starting with the same r...

OK, I dug out myu H3 quick reference card, so I can get the correct numbers: Pit Lords have 45 HP each. Demons have 35.

Huh, do you always keep the demons? Somehow I thought that they disappear after the battle. I guess that would mean that it would pay to have a suicidal squad of imps equal to the amount of pit lords you have and you can upgrade them to demons easily. But then, as you said, you need Town Portal to ...

Anyway what Salamandre said. Evil Eyes over Medusae mainly because (iirc) they're easier to get to and they suffice, although I'll say as well that Dungeon isn't a race I have much experience with either. Actually medusa are much better, but they also have a very low growth rate (I think a base of ...

They didn't do it, but this was an excellent (and thus a wasted) chance to hint at the next M&M project. They could have put a small image on the horizon of their "fly-by" titled "Might and Magic X" or whatever is next in the works.

Nice video, though.

A black dragon would have been great though... even if it's not in the game yet. How about a blue phoenix? Sulphur not included. It seems there are 500 of these made. Quite optimistic for a figure of unknown and not recognizable character. Especially for the price they are aiming for. 500? O_o OK, ...
