Yeah, that is why it will be great if we could play in something like battle net together, this is the only way that the game could survive in my opinion. There will be hell of a lot of players that will not bother to buy the if they will have to play AI, come on, everyone knows that the multiplayer games are making a lot more profits than the single games (actually every game that is made now aim exactly to become widely plaid in internet).


Doubt there will anything like battle net. I play hotseat with friends if I want to play multiplayer.

Multiplayer games are very big right now, but most of them have matches which last 30 minutes at most. Heroes multiplayer is fun, but a lot less casual.

Unless its a duel. But yes, a full scalled Heroes game does take a lot more time.

I like multiplayer a lot, but too few of my friends play Heroes for me to get an MP game regularly.  Typically, when I load up the game it's to play by myself - but I prefer playing on maps that are designed for multiplayer, versus maps that are designed for one person.  More resources, more players to mutilate, and generally more towns to steal.

I think multiplayer is important, although I rarely get an opportunity to play.

Was the same for me so I started playing on Toh. And let me tell you it was impossible to go back to single player, I lost any interest in playing the AI. In H5 you could feel that a huge percentage of smart tactics were being wasted on the AI and whenever I tried to play again the game felt hollow..

This is exactly what I mean, the real joy of the game comes when you overplay a person using some smart moves and tactics and not when you beat an AI.

mmm... It seems like I'm only using a small part of the game
Now that I have a good internet connection I'll make sure I will try multiplayer in H6 (but only after I finnish the campaigns. I'm curious about the story. And also because I believe that in the first weeks everyone will play only with Sanctuary to try the new faction  )

Quote:
Elvin, can you say theme of next heroes 6 week?  

Probably "more stuff already shown in previews". And the next week (15 March) maybe we will see one creature of the 5th faction. At this point, we will have to wait 2-3 weeks untill we saw the complete faction. After that they will show some random news like the release date...

Good question,  i really hope so !

I remember when playing toh there were offten problems with players. I remember some Russian player that got banned for cheating,  but could play again affter, and offten people said he was cheating. This problem would probably not have been that big if he was not also on top of the ranking of toh (his nickname was "Antal" for anyone that cares)

noted... encounter antal and run away
if they cant stop people from cheating its gonna be useless... playing three hours, getting ready for the big showdown to discover your enemy outnumbers u by 7000 dragons kind of kills the fun... also kills you

I would suggest Tournament of Honour, despite a few individuals that incite drama it's a friendly place where shady characters are uncovered fast enough. In case of foul play you can contact the toh administrator.

Edit: And as for next week patience (I don't know yet )

yeah it would be funny if it wasnt happening to me
that toh u guys are talkin about sounds good but... how can u really know ur getting cheated ? and lets say a rookie plays a pro and gets his ass whooped, he might think he got cheated, report the pro... theres no way of prooving those things right ? I'll stay optimistic and hope they figure out a way to disable the cheaters and in the mean time i'll play only "friendly foes" i trust

Well.. There are a lot of people there, all you have to do is ask a good player whether it is possible to defeat x powerful stack/have x army strength with specific faction on the map you want and you get the idea For instance I wouldn't think possible taking down lots of titans week 2 with dungeon when I first joined yet it pretty much was. Given a little luck with mana/power/spells of course and that's not possible on just any map.

Elvin do you know if ToH will do something special to recruit noobs when Heroes 6 arrives?
Or would it be better if I ask in the ToH-forum directly?

That's a funny thing to ask. Everyone will be a noob when H6 gets released

For the record it's an open tournament, you challenge whoever you want and just report the results. It should be a couple of years before 8 people manage to get the emperor status at which point the finals will begin. At the end another season begins and the scores will be reset. But if you want my opinion start as soon as possible and don't make the mistake of playing noobs all the time, it's from the good players that you'll learn. The rating system makes it so that losing to a good player won't cost you many points just like defeating low ranked players won't give you too much either.

Another bonus in ToH is that it is already 12 years old, and has steady leadership (Vesuvius), which proves it isn't gonna dissapear over night like some smaller tournaments did.

Anyhow, since i didn't see a direct link yet:
Tournament of Honor
