Online tournaments are player vs player not player vs map So if you beat your opponent game is over. Even on an XL-map the distance between 2 ennemy starting towns can be covered in +- 1 week max, so the rest of the time is vs the map, boost the skills, stats of main hero, etc. When final fight happens, the loser of that fight normally concedes the game. You have to play differently as you maybe play normally to be able to stand a chance vs those A-players

Thanks pacifist, that makes it a little clearer, I suppose that if you set up the rules ahead of time then the games will vary in styles depending on what was agreed upon.

Personally I would conquer the map before my opponent, as my style of play is magic. Without exp. and other stat boosters from the map higher lvl mage guilds are fairly insignificant. But I guess that after i play a few times with I will learn what works/doesn't and maybe have to rethink my strategy.

Generally it is very rare to have a game that ends after week 4. Most games are finished week 2 or week 3, partially due to the fact that most people play few somewhat quick templates.

However, if not something like extreme/marathon , practically every game can be finished in one month.

A HINT - All magic heroes are useless as main.

TYPE A players - those who do not use DD/Fly and can finish a XL map in 2-4 weeks.

TYPE B players - those who do not fall under TYPE A players.

Btw, DD and Fly are commonly banned in online games.

Fank,

Your comment on Type B players is hilarious!!
LMAO

I guess if you are trying to get the scenario done quick its pointless to build magic heroes. I personally don't see the fun in blitzkreig combat, why even have a map, set heroes up on an island with a bunch of creature dwellings and have em go at it.

Guess I'm type B

What's funny is that if we play against each other by the time final battle occurs it is very likely that my might hero is gonna be a better spellcaster than your magic hero.

Hey, i have played hotseats too. And back then i believed i am a very good player, almost undefeatable and with supreme strategic and tactics skills.

Then i decided to show the world how great i am and took part in some Heroe3 Leagues in my country. Very quickly i realised that i actually stand no chance against half the players and trust me, it wasn't a pleasant feeling.

Afterwards I began playing online and with as much as 400-500 games behind my back i think i know what i am talking about.

Hotseat with friends and online games versus good players are fundamentally different things. Play some online games (challenge me if you want) and you will see that most of your knowledge of the game is actually wrong.

After several games at Spider i can give my feedback.

The problem is that there are very high probability to meet as early as 1.1.3. And it actually happen in my last game. Day 1.1.3 i attacked and killed 3 of the enemy scouts.

For me thats a game ruiner.

Thats because the guards between main zones are so easy. You can beat them with week 1 army even with scout and no casualties whatsoever. That way you expand really fast.

In addition the zones are pretty rich, so no problems with gold/resourses. Thus - no problem with building order.

My suggestion is to make the guards between zone at least twice harder and to make the zones poorer regarding the money.

Otherwise the idea of the template is good - big map with lots of zones and lots of options where you can meet.
