Poll Question:
Favorite Forum of HC

What is your favorite forum in Heroes Community?

Let's analyze it:
I guess that almost all of us are originaly HOMM players, otherwise, we wouldn't be in HOMM's forum.
But still, there are many old members that active only on discussion and community boards, like the Tavern. Were they at the beginning HOMM players? Do they read HOMM boards?

Usually, accoding to what I have seen untill now, people that mostly reply on HOMM5 boards are fans of the game, but don't play it much. They usually discuss about it and less play it.
HOMM5 players that acutally play a lot, you'll usually find on ToH forum, and less on HOMM5 boards. They are the main users of the Chatroom. They use the Chatroom to organize games, to talk about games, etc.

Discussion about HOMM5 is at the Temple of Ashan forum. It is used for questions about HOMM5, talking and asking about technical problems, discussing about the campaigns, polls about HOMM5, reviews and analyzes of creatures and towns, and opinions or diffrent members. You'll find there mostly HOMM5 fans. Questions about the game are asked mostly by players (which do play the game a lot), but they usually don't become readers of the Temple.

The Altar (for HOMM5, HOMM6) and WoG (HOMM3) are forums for the theoretical creations. The cretores there are people who try to invent new things, or to improve existing things, and describe there thier ideas.
Some creative people avoid of putting a lot of effort in places like that, becuase they know how small is the chance that their works will get into the game, which is almost 1 out of 1000.
Since Age of Heroes Coliseum became the arena of ICTCs, many creators from the Altar moved to post mostly there.
Even though Age of Heroes Coliseum forum was originaly destined for short stories, stories are posted there rarely, in the last year, and the main focus goes to the ICTCs.

The Modders Workshop and the MapHaven Guild are for different kind of HOMM5 creations-not theoretical, creations that you can see in the actuall game. Mabey it won't be advertised as the official version of HOMM5, but most of the people use it for their own use.
At the Modders Workshop, people usually edit the game as they want it to be. Mostly for editing things that in their opinion should be diffrent, like diffrent creatures' looks, colours, heroes, etc.
In the MapHaven Guild, the creators create new maps. Mostly, write interesting stories and facts. They create new adventures for themselves or for other players (or for QPs).

As I noticed, old members usually post at the Other Side of the Monitor forum, but basicly, people from all the boards visit there sometimes, mostly when they see a thread that related to them somehow.

H5 is a disappointment - in anticipation of its release, the addicted H3 {and yes some of us H4} players began to talk about things other than cash or experience, is solymr really the bomb, how would adelaide really look in the morning... all the important gaming stuff.

I came here for the ICTC1 - which was what the coliseum was ultimatly made for {after whining spammers complained about it overloading the place}. (now it is a place to hold any competition btw)

Anyway, I began to read the VW and tavern, and was lmao each and everyday at the posts... most of these people don't post much anymore...

When I do play HOMM - I think figuring it out is the whole point - so never really read the cheats and blah.  

*sigh*

GAH I am becoming one of those golden era people I used to complain about

At first when I came here, I first posted in the Wake of Gods forum, but then instantly liking this place, started posting in Library,l and then slowly developing into other places such as Tavern, Other Games etc etc.

I was new to the internet at home, so this was all pretty exciting and a new experiejnce for me, as I had no knowledge with forums or anything, because I had never been to one.

But out of my time here at HC, I have started really liking Other Games, and Bards Glade Pyre.

I also like visitng Tavern, Wake of Gods occasionaly, Library (although I am a noob at HOMM3), Other Side, and checking out what is in HOMM5 Temple and the Altar.

But I do wish to see more activity in both Other Games (although that is going pretty well at the moment, with posts going into "guess the game picture" thread), but it could do with some more activity, and also much more activity in Bards Glade Pyre, because at the moment, I could consider that place, a little bit dead, and I am trying my best to revive it, with such threads as metrograde and my newest The movie, but I do not know what else to do.

I just hope some people come to their senses and start posting in that wonderful place, because RP's can be alot of fun people, and once you start getting into them, you will have realized what you have been missing out on with posting, and it is an entirely new experience

o just try to post a little more in Other Games, and alot more in Bards Glade Pyre.

Thanks

There is a problem with this poll, and that being the Wastelands is not a polling option. Why is that the case.

For years, we all have a place to go to
Where reality was the place we weren't travelling towards, but rather away from
Where debate ocurred more often there than in other forums
Where even the nuttiest of individuals can share their warped views

The Wastelands, an institution since it's induction to HC.

I don't visit Heroes boards much. I've played heroes only once, and only for about 15 min. I came here because Card_Ximinez asked me to.

I asked him why I should join and he just said: "Cause it's fun" So we made a deal that if I join HC, he'll play The Bard's Tale

I mostly read and post in the wastelands and the tavern, but also in other games and other side of the monitor. I like reading what other people think and giving my opinions, contributing to conversations, reading stories etc. I've realised that I'm really ejoying being on HC!

And, again thanks to Ximinez, I just ordered HoMM V Silver edition from amazon, (Expecting it next week) and I'm really looking forward to playing it since I'm interested in fantasy and such. After that I can also start discussing on Heroes boards.

And William, I'm interested in RPG and I've read some of the stuff on Bard's Glade Pyre, but I never really know what to say or tell...
