Just joined this forum upon seeing the heroes V "create a town" contest.
Looks cool. Reminds me of the mechanics of heroes 3.
Any players here who participates in the beta testing for heroes V?
Hoping to get more information about heroes V.
I am very excited about it that I can hardly contain myself.


Hi and welcome... surely in this place are some beta testers, But I guess they are not allowed to say that they are in the Beta test, also they are not allowed to talk freely about that

The Legend Begins... (Again) ^__^

Hi there !

It's me. Oh, I almost forgot ! Noone here has the slightest idea who that "me" is yet... Except Tigris. Hey Tigris ! See ? I made it ! I joined HC ! hehehe

Well, it's a small victory in itself, I must say. It's pretty difficult to register at this place, IMHO ! (As soon as I figure out which thread is appropriate for suggestions, I will explain why there). (EDIT : Done ! Angelito guided me to the Turban Tribunal and I posted my suggestions here : http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=16919 )

Anyway, "me" is Gamespy's LegendMaker.

I've discovered Homm2 in early 1999 and loved it so much I decided to find Homm1 and play the whole series in chronological order. I played Homm1 till I knew it by heart and only then did I allow myself to switch to Homm2. I then played this wonderful game (still my favorite of the series to this day ) for several years until the urge to be able to play it online made me force myself to switch again, this time to Homm3 complete edition.

When I first discovered Homm3, 2 contradictory feelings came up at once :

1) Lovely ! So lovely !!! They kept exactly all the cool aspects of the gameplay, interface and overall concept and pushed it to the next level... So cool !

2) WTF ?! What's up with the town types ?! Where is my beloved Sorceress town ?! Why the bleeding **** are all the creatures that used to be in the same "team" separated and mixed like that ?! Couldn't they just add new cool town types and let the proven ones intact, like they did for Homm2 ?!

It took me several years to get used to that aspect of Homm3 and become a supporter of this superb game. I've been a total addict for online Homm3 games eversince.

No offense meant to the Homm4 fans, but to me no matter how good it can be in its own right, it's a completely different concept of gameplay and it simply shouldn't be a part of the Homm series. It actually has much more in common with RTS games like Warcraft and such, IMHO. So, being a big fan of the core concept of Homm, I simply decided to pass up Homm4.

I love Wog (aka Homm3,5) but unfortuantely I don't think it's very likely to ever be able to play it online. Its greatest strenght (almost everything is customizable) is also its greatest weakness (how the **** could several players agree on the same settings for any particular game ? It's difficult enough to agree on rules and settings for regular Homm3 games... ) So I only play it by myself from time to time for the fun of it.

I'm just about to get my copy of Homm5, and looking forward to see if it's truely a "back to the proven roots" kind of thing (like most reviews since its european release suggest). I have very high expectations for this one.

Well, it might take some time till I'm comfortable enough with the way things are done at HC to start making actual posts (I'm not just a HC noob, I'm also a forum noob period ! )

But I will be around from now on, and hope to discuss strategies and tactics with you all soon !

Thx for welcoming me onboard !

Hi LegendMaker and welcome to this Community.
Itīs good to see, new members not just only read but also write.
For the matter of fact, Zone will close the Homm3 room, and all the players from there will have to change to gamespy in february, itīs good to see more and more GS-players join the Heroescommunity.
Check out the library here, to see if u can learn or add some stuff.
Even if u think it is not easy to register here, it seems pretty easy to get used to the BB Code...

Have fun.

Hi Angelito and thank you for your welcoming message !

Tigris told me about you when I recently met him at Spy ("most helpful guy ever" I think were his exact words lol )

1) I was fairly afraid of the BB code, I must admit. Until I made the effort and tried it ! I think it's actually so simple to use once you understand how it works, even my 6 years old niece could handle it ! Mention must be made here of MightyMage's "All Noobs come here first" which proved very helpful for me ! Thx, MightyMage !

2) The so-called "Zone invasion" phenomenon already started a few weeks ago at GameSpy, to tell the truth. Like everything new, it takes some time to get used to, I guess.

To be honest, most of the "zoners" I met at spy so far were Heroes noobs and / or pretty arrogant people.
I wasted my time trying to be nice and helpfull with many of them. All I got in return was, more often than not, four letter words contests and / or people quitting in middle game...

Until Tigris came up. Ask him how I welcomed him when we first met ! Lmfao ! I was so darn cautious I asked him like dozens of questions before I gave him a chance.

We at Spy had almost gone to the point where a "Zoner" had merely become another word for a "noob" and / or a "quitter" (the latter Tigris explained to me you at Zone call "dropper", but I think you see what I mean here). It's definitely not something I'm very proud of, now that I do know better.

"Only idiots never change their minds" is one of my mottos, luckily. And darn did Tigris prove me wrong on that matter ! (Most notably by kicking my **** very, very bad 2 times in a row !)

Arrogant people from anywhere eventually all end up on our so-called "**** list", anyway.
Meaning once a guy behaves badly with one of us, the others will get more cautious to start a game with that guy, and so on.

My point here is definitely not to discourage anyone from the Zone to move to GameSpy ! Perish the thought !

My message is rather : please all good players from the Zone and, more importantly, all nice people from the Zone, DO join Spy ! You will be welcome !

http://www.gamespyarcade.com/

If you need help registering at Spy (pretty difficult task as well, as I recall ) don't hesitate to ask !

I sure hope I didn't break the code of conduct in any way by exposing this situation here. If so, please forgive me, I didn't know what I was doing !
My intentions were pure !

3) I have actually several fairly motivated suggestions to make about the process of registering at HC. But I'm not sure which thread I should post them to. Any suggestion ? (EDIT : For those interested, you can now find my "Legendary" suggestions here : http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=16919 Lol)

Tia, Legend.

Hi, I am the spawn of satan, and im an......well, lets just leave it at "Heroes fanatic", personal stories will come after general introductions. For about the past 5 or so years, i've been playing Heroes III at my best friends' house, loving the game more each time i had played. But the only problem is, now that i have the game (and P.C.) to myself, it is more difficult for me to play! maybe it is just because i don't have an ally with a single cognitive thought to help me out.. but i think that i just don't know quite enough about the game... although i am a fanatic and play religiouisly. But, i have joined this forum to meet people with that same interest, and to learn, explore, and grow in the world of HOMM games in general. I hope to become more knowledgeable about heroes in general, and i hope to learn much about the people associated,  with the time I spend here.

Hi Satanspawn,
itīs very interesting to see, how many new members we get, although the game is 10 years old...lol.
If u want to become more knowledgeable about the game, check out the library here. Tavern or Other Side is the place where u can learn more about the members in private.

Have a good time here.

Well, I was off only for several days and meanwhile people became Legend here.

I had similar Heroes development as you, LegendMaker,  except that I involved deep into Heroes 2 (beginning on March 1999) and therefore the original Heroes had no positive impact on me. And I also agree with your statements, no wonder you're a writer.

Welcome and keep up the good writing you do here!

(Btw, Tiger was right about Angelito.)

Sure you can find the follow online tournaments... and the last link is to go into msn gamingzone to play this tournaments, or just to search players for a fun game, just go to that page click on cdrom games, then on classic games you will find heroes of might and magic 3, you can find the patches that you will need to play online here http://www.toheroes.com/patches.html  ... I suggest you inscribe on those tournaments to have more chances to find a game...  good luck and welcome to Heroes community

Hi again, folks !

Since I'm already introduced now, maybe I should stop posting in this particular thread (supposedly reserved for newcomers). But I assume it's still ok to reply to people who replied to my original post here... Correct me if I'm wrong !

1) To GabyStan

Nice to meet you and thanks a lot for the compliment ! (Legendary blush : till I find a more appropriate smiley, it'll have to do lol).

English isn't my native language (btw, is that the correct expression to say that in english ? noone could tell me for sure this far) but I'll keep doing my best to make believe I speak it fluently ! Rofl

I see what you mean about discovering Homm1 once you already knew Homm2 very well. Since the sequel is basically the same game, only better, it didn't make much sense to switch back to the original.

That's why I only allowed myself to start playing Homm2 once I already knew the original by heart. But not everybody has to be a self-tyrant !

(However, it's been years now since I switched to Homm3, and my memory of the 2 first games is a bit hazy, as you can guess by the laughable mistakes I did in this thread : http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=16911 Lmfao !)

Anyway, I'm flattered someone actually seems to like my writing (I wish french editors shared your feelings ! Lol). Not making promises, but I'll do my best to keep it interesting !

2) To Naphta

Hi !

(Would be a bit bold to say "welcome" since I'm still mostly a noob at this place myself ! )

Not saying the links lord_crusader gave you aren't useful (matter of fact they are excellent indeed ! )... BUT...
As Angelito stated previously :
Quote:

So, for people who haven't joined the Zone yet, I wouldn't recommend doing so. Your membership would only be useful for 2 weeks, now !

Instead, I highly recommend joining this place : http://www.gamespyarcade.com/ Contrary to the Zone, Spy has no plans of shutting down the Homm3 room (perish the thought ! ) so, for newcomers searching for online games, it's definitely the place to go from now on !

3) To onomastikon

While your warning unfortunately won't help me (I wish you had posted it before I had already made the same mistake ! Lol )... I sure hope it will prove helpful for future / new members !

Regards, Legend.

First of all, your English is very good, LegendMaker, no worry about that (even English natives have some slip-ups now and there ).

Secondly I like your posts are well-organized and so you should be an example to the rest of us to make our stuff easier (and likeable) to read.

Actually, I had no early contact whatsoever with Heroes, that's why I escaped being a self-tyrant (in your way). But I always played as best as I could even if that meant spending 2 or 3 times as much time, so am accusable of self-cruelty.

Hehe, I didn't see your mistakes till now, but you're still a Legend to me! Especially I make those kind of silly mistakes myself.

My notes about Heroes 2 Sorceress will come in the proper thread.

And the last thing regarding notifications of replies to our posts: they're not spam, as could prove some interesting stuff you should respond to, or some advices to keep in mind.
