it would be funny if they retconned Naga to live in the snow like the H3 Naga

oh wait... on a second note, I would hate that XXDDD

either way, it is now clear that there are more terrain types than we originally knew about


edit: if Naga are based around the far east, then what says that we wont see any Himalya-type enviroment?
either way, we know that we will "apparently be going to china in h6" (lol)

my actual point is if u've missed it - the marketing of the game is horrible, whether the release is in 2.5/3/ months or delayed, the marketing is horrible, no buzz, no news, no actual answers to questions... way to kill the game before its even out
I'm far from impressed with their advertising approach too - as well as many other people - so don't worry about it. This however won't hurt their sales as much as the revelation of something unambiguously controversial - like, say, that there will be an on-line DRM. Or that there will be no hot-seat in the initial release. Or whatever - you get the picture.

yaeh but an on-line DRM and no hot seats.. thats like kamikaze, i doubt they're that stupid, nobody aint buying it without the hot seats or with a DRM... leaving out tha factions and creatures loved by all along with the 10 maps in the release is pretty much the end of the line.. doubt they will top that one...

Just because something is evidently stupid does not make it less applicable. In the hands of certain people that is. The on-line DRM in particular is not out of the question at all. One of the recently released screenshots has a suspicious symbol on it - which could be anything at this stage, but could also be something unpleasantly specific. There could be something too "bold" in the yet unannounced gameplay mechanics too. They can't delay the release of this information forever, so by all means we should know much more by the end of January - be it about the game itself or about its problems.

well i dont know anyone who will buy the game with the DRM (it does mean only 5 people but still, thats a 100% of the people)... i doubt they would go for something as "bold" as being the only ones to acquire the game... but as i said, no info... fishing expeditions.. im waiting to hear some homm6 reptile or illuminaty connection, coz thats pretty much the only direction ppl have yet to go on

I'm slightly tempted to replay Heroes 5 to get hyped up about Heroes 6.

Then I think of the campaign heroes and play Dawn of War 2 instead.

Well, well, well. Ceph said that we shouldn't rule out any possibility...
PARANOIAAAAAA!!
Now, seriously, if they added the snowy terrain, they could also add the desert terrain, and 6 factions instead of 5,and a new spell school etc.
Now that I mentioned the spells, does anyone know what does Primordial spells mean? Elvin, a little hint, pretty plase?

Maybe this snowy terrain will be added in an expansion (if there are any) and we'll have old Academy back or Dwarfs? Or the previous information was wrong?

Well take that for running around telling everyone that their can't be a dwarf-, academy-faction just because of the "lack of terrain".

Of course the developers has cards up their sleeves, THEY ARE MAKING THE CARDS!

Primordial is tied to the primordial dragons of Chaos and Order, Urgash and Asha. As such you could expect inferno and necropolis having close ties to it.

Elvin, do you know anything about the snow terrain that popped up in that video? That was HVI footage, but I thought they told us all the tilesets already?

@ Cepheus
Sorry for misquoting you, but what you're saying is a welcome relief. And perhaps you can answer the questions Elvin could not.

Why is the shaman's left arm so gnarled and mutated?
Why is the Centaurs elite now? There is no judgement here, but there is a discrepancy in power I'd like explained.

If answering this would make you violate the NDA, please say so.


It would indeed. And besides I'm not even sure of the answers. Personally I always felt the Centaur has always been ridiculously underpowered for a creature of its stature (even in H3 and H5 it looks like it should be a level 3 unit at least), so I wouldn't contest that particular shift.

Nor do I know for certain whether the "shaman" is an Orc or an Ogre. Still, for all intents and purposes it is considered to be the classic Ogre Mage, back for revenge.

One more tidbit. In case you're wondering, all factions have both a Might and a Magic hero class. No exceptions

is Dawn of War 2 similar to homm ?


No.  It isn't similar at all to Heroes of Might & Magic.  It's a real-time tactical game.  

Personally I think it's much better than the original Dawn of War because it gets rid of the stupid base building that bogs down action in real-time strategy games.

@Mmh6James

I don't think raping an established lore to impose a new, dragon-centric lore is very interesting.  To each their own though.

I could be completely wrong about this, I probably am, but given the magical emergence of this new snow terrian and sincre stronghold was something NO ONE and I mean pretty much NO ONE expected, I think there is a possibility that there might be a surprise 6th faction. Personally I was CONVINCED that the 4th faction would be academy, and since the 5th faction is everything but confirmed to be naga, there is a discrepancy. WHY are Academy monsters mentioned MULTIPLE TIMES in the faction descriptions? hmmmmm. food for thought. while snow IS generally seen as dwarf terrian it was h3 tower so i think that there is at least a 50% possibility of academy being a 6th faction.
