Trust me, with 1 min turns demon farming would be a nightmare. But 1 min turns are for noobs, so no need to spend more time on that.

Did you all like to play with time limits? I think its difficult to play, moreover if you try playing 'demon' strategy. So how to play that in 60s each turn?

I'm not too fond of Conflux, I just don't like the whole elemental thing they got going for them.

I am also terrible with Inferno, their units don't mesh well for me.

Is Solmyr is that bad? I love to play Tower and Solmyr against my friend in hot seat game. He use Deemer.
Yes, Solmyr is bad. Don't get missleaded by his soooo usefull chainlightning. You cast it once, and then you need to refill mana. And he won't get all the good and helpfull secondary skills like Logistics, Offense, Armorer, Tactics that easy, because magic heroes like him (and Deemer of course) tend to get offered magic related skills (or those more or less non usefull 2ndary skills) like Sorcery, Mysticism, Learning, Eagle Eye, Scholar, Intelligence and so on.

...


maybe change to "solmyr is bad as a main hero?"

he's quite good as a scout hero... shove some gargoyles on him.
Enemy scouts won't be a problem (you have your chain).

He also occasionally becomes one of my "throw one armageddon and die" heroes. Already starts with advanced wisdom, so one less lvl up needed.

Granted, he's quite useless as a main, but still, I would take him over someone like... Sanya.


Back on topic

Dungeon. I hate playing dungeon... the harpy hag flying animation takes soo long! Scorpicores are fragile. The redeeming factor is probably the minotaurs   I just don't have an affinity for using dungeon =.=

This probably goes without saying, but I can't stand playing Conflux. The whole design of the town is kind of wierd and the mid-level creatures feel unbalanced. Also, Inferno is one of my least used towns. I love the design and art of the town itself, but I'm not so keen on playing strategies with the weaker creatures that require them.

Yeah, just turn up the battle animation speed. Besides, the wait is worth being able to fly back to your space.

Marreti, dont wage your wars on TE everywhere.

You said you played TE only once. How can you pretend to have a valid oppinion in such case?

As i said in other threads - TE must be played WITHOUT the options for moral, upgrade stack and creature experience. So, regarding those elements - its the same as SOD.

The only difference is there is always build 2 level army in castle, and always 3 stacks in starting heroes.

But you dont have ANY army in 3-rd hero, so its even harder.

And on top of that - Slow is 2 level magic, you cant get it from scrol/shrine and it doesnt appear in scouts (changed for every scout). Haste cost 7 sp. Cure is level 2 magic and cost 10 sp.

So - lets not argue which one is harder, because in some cases SOD can be even easier!!!

"Marreti, dont wage your wars on TE everywhere."

Lionpy, that is truely a ridiculous statement considering the fact that you and Sag are promoting TE in every freaking thread you see and thereby are waging a war on SOD.

"You said you played TE only once. How can you pretend to have a valid oppinion in such case?"

I never even tried it but ofcourse I can still have an opinion as long as i can read and think. I dont have to try playing with 20% armor to know what it does. I did try playing with DD and fly and I know what it does. I have tried to play with slow as lvl 2 and bying 4 guilds 2 without getting it. I have tried to start with 3 stacks of elves and know what it does. And watching the suggestions to further changes I can only say it really dosent look promising. The only great improvement I see in TE is the exchange all button.

Its truely a shame that the community have been devided like this. There wernt that many players in the first place, now we are playing two diffrent games.

I like all factions in Heroes 3. That's perhaps what makes it the most fun of the series, the well designed units and factions. But I don't like all equally. So I say disslike here when I compare to how much I like the others. There is no faction that I truly don't like in this game.

Ok my cents:
Tower
Just because they are so popular. Everyone has them as their favorite faction.

Castle
Seems too be so popular too. Everyone is so in love with arch angles. I don't like them. And I often prefer to play less human (or elf or such every similar) factions in fantasy games as possible.

Conflux...
I have little skill in this game so I can't tell about overpowerness. But I don't like the idea. It seems so just put together with an all elemental faction. Like a cheap idea they got. And the look on the units doesn't indicate well if one is more powerful than another. There is no doubt that a goblin is weaker than an ogre that's common sense but why a water elemetal would be weaker than any other has no real sense.


Just my notes on inferno:
I see people disslike them. I think they are great design wise. If there are demonic creautes in a game I want them to be typical red old school christinanity ripp-offs. Few demons in games look good I think an very few times do we get to play as them ourselves. They are always just the enemy. I loved that they are playable in heroes 3 and the design on them. However I always felt like the demons and pit fiends are weak and boring. No or non-interresting specials. I like eftreets alot. Bugs me a little that devils uses schytes. Save typical schytes for ghosts not demons please. The faction might be weak overall too, which bothers a little.

Unlike many others it seems I do like stronghold and fortress as well. They have some problems with prices and some weak units though.

Why is solmyr so bad? Me and my friend always have had him as a favorite.

Chain lightning is one of the 3 actually useful damage spells (others being meteor shower and implosion). He specializes in it, that's super cool. And he looks awesome too.

Why is he worse than any other magic hero?

Do you even know what the effect of his specialization is?

And how often do you cast it in the first weeks when you fight vs the map?

And how do you use it in buildings like dwarven treasury, imp cache, medusa store etc...?

novice players normally don't think about any money banks, they like combo Solmyr + Capitol. Nevermind that it will take ages to develop hero and town, but it's pretty simple.

The effect of the specialization is that chain lightning becomes stronger?

About the other things, are you saying CL isn't a good spell?

Yes, but completely insignificant. or do you think it is a game breaker if y CL deals 1130 instead of 1100 damage?

Quote:

Rather useless, yes. But it is not the spell which is bad, it is the hero and its class.

Read the library (Table of contest) and search for "Best heroes" threads, or "Might vs Magic"

Those may help you understand...
