I stopped trusting reviews a few years ago when several sites and magazine gave crappy scores to some great games while they were giving out 95+% or A+ to poor Ubisoft or EA games just because of the brand.

It reminds me of a March '11 preview of MMH6 where the reviewer just said how crappy the sieges were in H6 because all he could do was passing his turn while waiting for the catapult to open a breach in the wall ... Obvisouly the press tends to send total idiots or people who have no clue about the games to test them ...

Best way to make yourself an idea of a game is to test the demo or join the beta. "That guy" who will review the game will always have a subjective opinion and also often some pressure from the big game companies.

Now that many of you can play, which order of faction in the campaign will you play and why? Are there any recommended order? I think Inferno will be the hardest due to it being a might hero, so I will play them last. I think it will help having the many dynasty weapons at my disposal from other campaigns when I start the Inferno campaign.

When can we expect the first community created maps and what's the best place to look out for them?

Someone had suggested that I try sanctuary or stronghold first, then haven or inferno and finally necro if I wanted to make the best out of the story. I guess the necro has more story elements

Meanwhile I'm patching, 66%!

playin' game, I'm surprised game was much more noticeable in shop than previous H5, patch was 500MB...

How did everyone find the user interface on first use? [didn't try beta]  sucked a bit initially for me & lot less intuitive than H3/H5, had great difficulty trying to find what each creature specialty meant because they are icons & right-click is not so normal.

& I see no random faction can be chosen for computer player in skirmish & having to click & select each AI difficulty individually to hard...

no "paper doll"...  town screens are not that bad but again user interface not that great either

hope AI is not too bad

btw what is map difficulty settings (eg. multipliers for each different setting) and what does AI difficulty do for their resource/creature bonuses?

Alas there is a key problem and I cannot connect to the conflux. I do not want to start the campaigns since it would be a shame to miss the dynasty weapons. Other than that it's looking good.

Oh, thank the Gods I'm not the only one with a key-promblem. It would appear the ruddy thing does not recognise the key that came with my download email.

EDIT:

After patching, it woiks.

I think there's more than one bug People have been reporting units squeaking like mice in combat when they kill an opponent (rather than shouting)

As game is out, I guess it's time we start a new discussion thread. I'll open a new one and put this one to rest. I will kindly ask you to take the effort to report the bugs in the newly started Patch 1.1 - Bug thread - that will be of great help.

~ Rest in peace ~
