I just realized that the cyclop on this picture looks like a behemoth from Clive Barker's Jericho... Not sure if I like that

lol

for what ive seen i dont like stronghold, i wont re-write all the rants i read before but its about the same thing these  fellows are saying.

It could help A LOT to have one unit over an animal though.

Just browsed through this thread a bit... holy **** why so much hate towards my most beloved orcs? They're big, mean, nasty, smell bad, thirst for blood, low IQ, had a "They've killed Kenni - You snows" reference in their campaign, have epic sideboobs, no regards for tier 1 labour unions (read Bixies epic epic story of the Goblin Agitator´), use their tier 1 units as ammo, have a Cyclops that can seriously f*** s*** up and SHOOTS LAZORSSS OMG!!! and and and they haven't invented the bra yet Oo! COME ON GUYS!! What's not to love? Oh yes baby orcs are in and going to kick some serious a$$! Eat it all you sissy, wannabe treehugging, poetry loving, metrosexual greenpeace activists!


I regret to inform all that Badrant, the goblin agitator, was killed off in an unfortunate accident involving an equal pay march and a drunken cyclops. he will be sorely missed.

luckily, his twin bother nicked his name, clothing and possibly his teeth and will be continuing to campaign for the equal rights of the downtrodden goblin class until the nearest cheiftan wanders over.

because they want more e-sport in HoMM I guess (SC-style) but it kinda fails since it is a turn-based game without a huge player base plus the strategy in heroes has never really been that expansive

for instance, in lets say Starcraft 2 you probably build different combinations of units every time and build X unit to counter Y unit and when the enemy builds Z unit, you counter with Å unit et cetera.
In the Heroes game, you always have the same line-up of 7 creatures. This could be fixed a bit though if alternate upgrades were included and you could alternate upgrade outside of towns or that there was more of a H4 system when it comes to creature line-ups.

Definetly looks like an orc.

Now whine please

How can someone seriously want that, that "thing" instead of a Wyvern?!
Just hope he isn't a copy of the brawler...

Can I just say that I've always thought it hilarious that the Cyclops has turned into a shooter. It makes no sense - it's got ONE eye, and hence zero depth perception.

This is the LAST guy I'd want throwing things.

I like how the stronghold looks. Just 2 questions:
1. Is the cyclops champion or elite?
2. we have goblin, harpie, mauler, centaur, shaman, cyclops and...what?

I agree bassically 100% with what Nightterror says.  Also, I think that with H6 graphics that culd make a pretty awsome Behemoth, No armor or weapons, Just strait out BEAST.

If Barbarians are the speedykillers, worshiping Father Sky makes sense to me as Air magic would include Lighning Bolt and Haste.

I think Mother Earth and Father Sky are gonna be the big bad bosses.
This means no Behemoth. Unless Mother Earth looks like one.
Would Father Sky be a Thunderbird or a Dragon?

And I hardly think shes a leader(no not because shes a woman), just because you have a human hero in a faction does not mean they are the faction leader...


Apart from the Haven dude, I doubt any of them will be the "faction leader" but they are still some kind of leaders since armies of particular races will likely follow them into the succession wars, I'm sure all 5 will be more than "just heroes".

Oh yes please That would solve the Roc/Thunderbirdproblem

I was a teeny bit dissapointed cause I was 100% expecting Academy, but then I saw the harpy and the shaman and I thought "what the heck, they're cool enough".
But well, Academy and Sylvan not being on H6 vanilla sure shows us that they're going to be a cool expansion pack.
And I hope that Naga are elaborated and have tons of cool magic to compensate for the lack of Academy.

Yeah ofc I just meant that because they are in the different factions does not make them automatically kings or queens or whatever.
But it's only logical of course that they are some kind of leader, otherwise they wouldn't really matter as much. I imagine that their power(and leadership) will only grow during the campaign.

1. in the greek mythology cyclop was always into some stone throwing even when he was just a little kid growing up...
2. sniper, when he aims to kill, closes one eye so he can make a more precise shot... one eye more precise, think about it

No, that's because the gun sight is only made for one eye.

And that only makes sense when your projectile will fly exactly straight in the direction it was shot, like a bullet out of a gun. That allows a 2D projection onto a single eye to work fine.

Any normal projectile will be difficult to aim. Just try throwing around a football or baseball (heck, a rock) with one eye.

core:

Goblin - it's ok , i guess Orc faction Must have Goblins in their line-up..

Harpy - Awesome!!! Everyone loves them

Mauler - 1st Orc.. will cope with that..


elite:

Centaur - definetely Should be elite! Not core! It's a freggin-Horse!!! can't be core!! Otherwise i don't know why it's female, just in sake of haveing female units in each faction???

Shaman - 2d Orc.. I like em! Way much better then mauler!!!

Jaguar/Cyclops/Behemoth/Big Orc whoever it is -
IF it is 3d orc... then will be disappointed.. 2 Orc are ENOUGH!!!!!
IF it is Ogre or maybe Troll.. then that's much better!!! Makes more sence
IF it is Cyclops.. then it is weird to see Cyclops look like that!! But i will rather want them to be Cylops then Behemoth..

Champion:

- Cyclops/Behemoth/New name????
I think when we get the artwork we gonna all agree that is the best unit for Stronghold, even on adventure map it looks Awesome!!!!! real badasss!!!!!

It's from the insider at the Russian forum, he said that's the name of the creature unless Ubi changed it since then.

Valen-Teen, can you clarify what has been said about "possibly no flyers", that seems to be quite the hint.
