I think with the release date moved back from March, then to spring, then to 2011, they ran out of screenshots. I for one doubt the SOTW will contain any juicy details we didn't already know of. Also, fifth faction surprise will be half or late March. They have to delay all the stuff they publish, since the release date keeps getting postponed.

the sotds didnt speak volumes, true. but they were never unwelcome....at least they provided food for thought of some sort. i dont really think that running out of screenshots in a vast game like heroes is a possibility. it must make some sense in the weirdest of ways for ubi to do something like stopping screenshots at this stage. i'm just hopin that they let out some good stuff this week as xhane mentioned in fb.

Seriously though the later they announced it the more they will loose the momentum to generate hype. Just my 2 cents

The hype has been lost for monthes with such a crappy marketing strategy

Arena incr. might attack

I don't think so. Arena increase might attack or might defence. Look the banners (swords and shield)


Probably this building increase might attack

You can see it in Nelgirith's thread 'H6 Map Objects'

Yep, the arena used to give a choice between +Atk and +Def, but the screenshot of Feb, 9th was featuring the arena and it said :

Quote:
A small wooden bridge lead to the Arena. Will you challenge the champions of the coliseum to increase your abilities?

It might work like the H4 coliseums where you had to fight to gain a level, except that this gives you stats bonus or even skill points

Okay but then what does Armorsmith do if the Arena can increase attack or defense....

Also that building that you highlighted from 'H6 Map Objects' could be related to Warcries or abilities in the hero's skills (not the attributes).

We had a building giving +1 Def, another one giving +1 Atk and the arena was giving either +2 Atk or +2 Def.

We still don't know the value of the skills if the same like H3 (+1, +2 etc) but I think the model is the same - Weaponsmith (Attack), Armorsmith (Defence) and Arena gives choice between Att & Def evan though we must fight for them

what exactly will this look like or be like with what they're calling town windows? whats a town window lol?

The only Town window we have (and I know about) looks like this
http://www.heroworld.net/screenshot/h6/20100821-drachenwald-05.jpg


thank you, yes i could see why there is a lot of complaining about this since we're all used to a full screen layout of a town wether in 2 or 3d.  I would still prefer a full screen but this might not be too bad once its all said and done.  I just wonder how you will go about building your town and accessing the various buildings your town will contain?  

thanks war-overlord, had to rewrite cause i got kicked and had to log back in...ill check it out


I think the buttons with the locks, are the buildings in your town. It seems it'll be a very fast and smooth interface! And I love the fact that there won't be any loading time from and to the adventure map, as the town will just overlay as a window!

I just have to say... There are 9 buttons at the bottom. NINE! And you think that's smooth interface. If each leads to another screen that would lead to button/menu nightmare. Also that talk about loading time for town screens... OMG! What kind of computer you have that your screens take loading time? Think about the fact that you will have preloaded window in memory all the time, yes it would remove already non existent loading time but further hinder computer performance. So much for beautiful, easy to navigate, fast window.

Yes arenas are going to be awesome this time around ^^ There have been some nice tweaks to existing adventure locations or features we used to take for granted.

Does it mean that we can get some abilities in addition to Might Attack/Defence?

Windmills, watermills, fairy/leprechaun circles we don't see yet. Look Nelgirith's thread H6 Map Objects. He 'gathers' adventure map objects.
Particularly about knowledge doesn't represent in game. There are Mana, Magic Atack and Defence.

Thanks, Elvin about the comment below.

A few have changed in outward appearance, you may have even seen some of them. I have not seen all adventure locations myself so not sure whether all traditional ones will return.

I don't know. The description of the screenshot in facebook says: This sacred tree is a symbol of the glory of Elrath, the Dragon-God of Light, and of its Holy Empire. It seems like a object only for Haven.

Most likely it's a campaign-only object.

Yes sacred tree is a symbol of Elrath, so it must be a tree only for the haven campaign.....

Any thoughts on what the Monolith might do? I am thinking a level up like the Sylanna trees from H5....

Yesterday I gave suggestion:
Quote:
According the description of Budha's statue. Budha is guarded by 7 heads naga from the elementals. We have magic schools based on the elementals. Then I may suppose that the Monolith could be a building which gives Magic defence.
