Hey All,

I'm a new memeber to the community and look forward to contributing.  I'm a seasoned vet to heroes starting with h2 in 97 and then h3 came around I got sucked in for good.  I own h5 but am not particularly fond of it.

H3 - Favorite town, hands down necropolis and a toss up for second between rampart and dungeon.
I almost always prefer bigger maps and magic heroes.  I'm lucky to have a few buds that still play and we do multiplayer hotseat once in a while.  I have recently been doing research and trying to learn more about online gaming and would like to begin doin that as well.

H5 - In my opinion, the makers sacrificed overall gameplay for graphics, and in my book thats just plane awful.  I  speak as a gamer who prefers his super nintendo zelda and nes crystalis to the halos and call of duties out there now.  A bigger issue I has with h5 was the amount of unbalance between the towns compared to h3.  In h5 if you have comprable armies and better initiative, 9 x out of 10 initiative will win the day (sucks to be necro in that case.)

Anyway just sayin hey and I look forward to posting my opinions, viewing urs and playing with some of you online.

Hey there VrabelMix and welcome to HC Have you tried the expansions of H5? They're awesome! The regular game isn't so good compared to the expansions in my opinion.

That's like saying that in heroes 2 the sorceress will always win because her phoenixes go first in battle.

Anyway welcome Vrabel.  Hope you stick around.

Phoenix,

speed and initiative in mu opinion, are way different.
Angels typically go first in battle in h3 but I can mop the floor with the angels using legions of skellies.

In h5 the way I understand initiative is that better intaive troops go more often than troops with lower intiative.... ie: I was playin a game against a friend as necro and had two towns fully built up and producing troops. He used the sylvan faction and had only one towm. when we met in battle i had nearly 2X the amount in every stack plus the exponential difference in skeleton archers.  for every 1 attack I had per creature stack, my friend had 2-3 attacks per stack and he almost won the battle. at the end I was mind boggled b/c our heroes were extremely similar in levels and primary stats and had the troops been equal, he would have anihalted me.
and hence my dissaproval of the whole initiaive thing, in my opinion it was as if the makers of the game had chosen which factions were better and deserved more initiative

There a few things I want to say:


1) Perhaps you had the numerical advantage, but Necro troops are weaker, chepear and a lot more numerous than other faction's troops. So expect a hard life even if you outnumber the enemy.

2) Magic may make up for initiative. Your hero should have a better initative than the enemy Ranger, and way better spells.

3) Initiative can be easily manipulated.


But, since you play the original game, it's no wonder balance suck. Get the latest add-on (Tribes of the East) and patch it, the game is a lot more balanced :Haven is allowed to train a limited ammount of troops per week per town, Necromancy can raise all Necro creatures, not only skellies (ok, the raising system suffered massive modifications; you raise ghost dragons out of blackies, wights out of matriarchs etc.). Some things are broken however (Arcane Archer's IMBAness is legendary).

Oh, and welcome on HC. (Btw, Heroes 3 is also BY FAR my favourite; H5 is very good).

hey thanks for the info zamfir, I'm definetely going to look into the expansions.  I think my biggest beef with the game was actually the lack of L & XL maps that were available in the original package and after playin them a few times I grew to know them too well and they bored me.  With all the advice I've been getting about the different places to get maps and the advantages of the expansions I think I definetly have to give the game another try..........

Another thing I wasn't particularly fond of was the development of the secondary abilities. In H3 when I neared the end of hot seat multiplayer games, heroes were usually around Lvl 20 & fully leveled up at expert with all secondaries, whereas in H5 at the end of games (by end of I mean when main heroes typically met in battle) they were similarly at Lvl 20 but the secondaries were by no means maxed. This I felt made it very difficult to choose which abilities I should be taking when offered and which ones were the really important and "better" ones.......

Also check the ToH Maps, some of them are awesome. Unfortunately they were made for multiplayer so I don't know if the AI provides a fun experience on them, but it's worth a try (or you could play multi or Hot-Seat with a friend on them )

And welcome to HC
