I am completely agree with Maretti. If 90% of the games are in Jebus - this must be for a reason.

And if both players want to play Jebus - why force them not to play it? If you want to play different template - just ask your opponent and if he is experienced probably he will not have problem to play at diff templ.

The general solution is clear - make as good templates as jebus and people will play it.

For me only Blockbuster is close to jebus.

2sm4d is ridiculous. Template that allow 1 week meeting should not be regard as a template at all. Thats just my oppinion.

Balance is like beta version of Heroes.

If you think, that Jebus is best template, then you are not right. Jebus is good (maybe best) for much Wcl/Lrh and other players (and i dont say that Jebus is bad too). But in the World is not 1-2 League's and not only these players For Example Jebus is Nothing in Heroes.by. Their bests templates are not Jebus, not Balance, not Panic. They have other templates. And noone can say, which template is the best

Make a Random Map tourney next season, which is seperated in several subtourneys (groups) where only ONE specific template can be played. Like:
Group 1 = Jebus
Group 2 = Balance
Group 3 = Panic
Group 4 = Extreme 2
Group 5 = 6LM10
Group 6 = Angelito's Fiesta ()
etc...

A player can only participate in ONE of these groups. The 2 highest ranked (most wins) player move on into next round (quarterfinal or similar). These following rounds are played on templates which haven't been used for group games.

We had such a tourney on WW 2 years ago. Was quite cool.

There are no limits
posted February 04, 2008 07:28 PM

I do not get what's so great about Jebus at all. Force the limits? Sure, but this aplies to every template. Jebus is easy and luck dependant. On this template everyone can win versus everyone. Even if you play to the best of your abilities, you still can lose due to the immense luck factor. However, 2sm4(d)x is not better, it is the same story, it all depends on what you get in topias, how big hives you can hit, is there nice artifacts lying around ......
So reality is that better players will win most of the times on any template, but skills do not matter much if your opponent is lucky enough. I really liked the LRH random addict system, so whenever two players decide to have a random map, may the generator decide which is the template. At least, there is some real random element, not the usual day 5 angel, day 3 behemoth etc. Jebus can be fun but it proves nothing regarding level of playing, it is just ridicuosly easy to play. Balance is almost the same, one nice dwell and you are miles ahead. Get easy access to the hive zone (if one), the game is won. So heroes is mostly about luck. The fact that some people have spent more time learning the game, thus developing better tactics/strategies is present. They will win more then the regular players and that is all. They are better players but still can lose due to bad luck. And there is no way to eliminate luck factor so at least, let us play different templates. More fun, basically the same chance to win. And no, template based tournaments is not quite a good solution, it will just encourage certain people to play the same template over and over, resulting in no actual progress at all.

Of course, i may be completely wrong about this........

i use Kaspersky 7.0 anti-virus. It has detected Trojan.generic / Invader in file C:\syslyob.exe. Free version (1-month trial) of latest Kaspersky 7.0 anti-virus you can download from official website HERE.
If you don't have file C:\syslyob.exe then i guess that you have little probability of infection. As far as i know, most sources do not recommend to use more than 1 anti-virus program at the moment, so maybe you should search internet for more information about using multiple anti-virus programs.
I don't think that there is some problem in code of my website, i think that server of provider was infected in some other way. All i can do is:
- to alarm players (will publish short notice on main page later today)
- move website to other (more safe) host location. This is not easy, will require money and time. I don't plan to do it at the moment, though if such situations will happen again and again then i will have to do it.

Personaly i will be glad to donate, to move the site to more reliably and stable server. Last year there were 2 times when the site was down for several days.

And if you change the server i suppose the URL name will be changed too? personaly i think that its possible to find better domain name for the site.

kuma back

>7 correct answers. You know few facts, however seems that you are new to HoMM3 community. Try to play with experienced players and see how they move, what do they build in towns. Try to visit Library on www.heroescommunity.com. Test results were recorded and will appear in your public profile. You may retake test in 1 week if you want.

I am either rusty, or this test is a toss
