yes, i have played them and i keep playing them. They are very good TBS games, very different from Heroes, so i think we cannot compare the two of them. Disciples has some things heroes doesn't, and the other way arround.

At the core, it is a cool TBS with lots of options regarding upgrade posibilities.

Well, I didnīt know that. Disciples is a good game, and I am very fond of the training system. D2 has only one big map, Power to Corrupt, and thatīs annoying. I donīt like making my own maps. Boring.

Disciples 1 is Better!

I have both Disciples 1&2.  It's weird but I like 1 better.  I find that 2 has just too many upgrade choices and not all of them are even worth it.  Also some of the choices are just stupid to even think of choosing.

  D2 has a bunch of expansions that are stand alones like SoD was.  I have Dark Prophecy.

Ok after reading about the Rise of The Elves expansion I went and did some searching.  I found ad demo of it at fileplanet and downloaded it...lol took me over 4 hours even with a DSL line.

 Anyway tried it and it was ok but, like I said before, a lot of upgrade choices were just annoying and WRONG!  I mean the healer of the elves upgraded one way gets you to this guy that can cast Earth, Water, Fire, and Air wards on you all at the same time.  But if you continue to the next level your character is limited to either Fire or Air I believe.  Does that make sense to anyone?  More exp and higher levels restrict you more?  Now I am really glad I didn't go a spend my hard earned money on it.

The game is nowhere near as good as the Heroes series, but it was fun. I didn't delve into any expanded editions or anything, though.

Disciples 2 balance

Disciples 2 is one of my favorite games ever but i've always felt the game balance was not quite there. I have some experience with .dbf editing but due to the lack of a dedicated forum on the game balance i could never really make something good ,tested and criticised . I have recently stumble upon a russian mod for the game called equilibrium . I was wondering if anyone wants to test it and submit opinions on my mail. If you do contact me for the game files in english (i hope).

True, balance was a bit problematic, same as casting spells on the adventure map and not in combat(that was the biggest problem, Mages were in huge advantage, they could even kill your hero with Tier 5 units in few spells), and because of bad maps, most of the time it was more fun playing singleplayer against AI than vs. a friend.

I really like D2, and really hate that they destroyed the series with D3, even with not that good balance in D2, it was still amazing compared to that pile of crap called D3.

D3 Reincarnation is a pretty good game, at least better than H6 ... but this does not mean much. I rate it 7 of 10 and 8 of 10 with my mod .

Well i was at least thinking of balancing the units within their own tier in the same faction ( eg. wolf lord vs hermit , hierophant vs prophetess) then go for inter - faction balance. I never undestood why dwarf fighters are better than others at low levels and then loosing on both hp and damage. I know things are more complex when you take spells into consideration but i'm thinking of balancing the units first then go from there.

I have a balance mod completed in case anyone cares. It consists of .dbf editing only. I anyone want it let me know and we will figure something out.

Hello Disciples fans!


If you are still interested in these games, I might rejuvenate your inspiration with the map I finished lately.

Being a fan of Disciples 2 as well, I decided to play a bit custom scenarios in the last month. Having in mind the fact that I am old-dog map-maker and modder of other games, I waned to play a really interesting map. But in the end it turned out that I had to make myself a damn good map, that can catch me up. The fact that drove me to this was simple - none of the maps included in the game(except the sagas) were interesting to me. The worst was the fact that after searching on the internet for custom maps I've found again only disappointment. Yes, my character is picky when it comes to maps, and not even single one I tried managed too inspire me to play. It was decided then, I had to make my own map. Some time later it is done, tested as much as I could and ready for sharing to other strategy nuts.

The scenario is 96x96, for the exansion Rise of the Elves, it is suitable for single-player and balanced for multi-player.

Here is a little spoiler of a regular Leader after the final battle:

Download the map from Here and paste into your Disciples 2 Elves folder named Exports
