Honestly they should remove the Magic University requirement and stay to how it was. Sprites are only level 1 creatures with 3 hp and are killed very easily by spells. As it is now Sprites are usually one of the last creatures to get upgraded at Conflux, because of that expensive Magic University.
Pit Lords in Inferno should go back to require Mage Guild level 2 however.


Ever thought about "No Retaliation"? Super powerful for an unit able to fly and being available on lvl1 in big numbers. The academy is one of the most powerful buildings in the whole game. Maybe just for midgame lvl~8 but still...

Harpy Hags, Cerberi and Vampires also have no retaliation and Sprites are very weak, 3 hp and 2 defense, arrow towers, shooters and fast units can also take them down easily.

Dude, sprites are not to use in pvp combat, vs towers or vs shooters. They are formidable level up boosters during first week and that's their unique and final goal. Stop thinking in human vs AI box, you have to realize such changes are done to balance pvp.

Yeah perhaps you are right, it just feels weird to me that upgrading a level 1 unit is one of the final things you do when building up a conflux or maybe I just don't remember how they were OP before.
It was more the 4 birds per week and the cheap 6 and 7 level units that concerned me, but HotA balanced that perfectly.

You have to realize that multiplayer matches almost don't count with troops from towns in the final battle.
The thing is, with sprites you hire a good hero and level it up during the first week, to a point you couldn't achieve with any other town (except maybe Necropolis) and heroes, not armies, win major battles.

So just because you can level up a random good hero( and you're not even guaranteed to get one in tavern) with the help of sprites means you should do anything you can to put restriction on using them? Nonsense. How about the crappy units that can only be used for armageddon strategy? Overall, my opinion is they did an ok job on balancing firebird thing and increasing the price of some units but making it almost impossible to have sprites is just too much. If you don't agree, first go find a decent player who is willing to choose conflux in HotA in PvP, then get back to me. I bet even Grindan wouldn't help your case ..

these irrelevant discussions are due to the lack of the news from the hota team why don't we talk about aow3? with a better AI that could be a really interesting game...HOTA doesn't challenge good players against AI. We need a new real `heroes' game, not ubi garbage...

The Sprite nerf always seemed out of place to me. It's not like Conflux needs more pointless and expensive creatures.

Hey fellas,

eagerly waiting for the next patch, although got few questions with my friend...

1) Are you going to add more neutrals except of the revealed Leprechaunt in the next patch ?

2) Do you plan to add new spells ?

3) Are you going to add more decorative objects instead of the revealed ones ?

4) Is it just me or you added decorative objects on the battlefields ? Is there a list with what you added (with pics pref.)

5) This one was actually asked before, if the answer was done, can you please redirect me - you see, my friend loves your datadisc, what bothers him is his lack of his English, is there a way I can translate HotA to him ? He would really love to play the campaign but he loses insterests without understanding the backround story.

6) Did you think about merging with HD mod ? I know you work on the game side-by-side but still.

7) What program language are you using to mod the game ? Or rather do you use C# anywhere in your work ?

8) Is your team still together and active - I mean the one from the start. I read somewhere that the guy who made most of the old graphics left for army, is he still active or was it a rumor ? (I think he was Ivan something, not sure tho)

Thanks for your time and answers in advance and sorry for the wall of text.

Have a nice day

Yeah, the sprites upgrade requirement is good to prevent sprites rush. Still, 375 for an Ice El is way too much (as much as some 4th grades, which are far superior); 400 for an Energy El is way too much (as much as a vampire which is almost twice better). 1200 for Magic El is way too much (as much as a Champion which is way better); 9000 for 3 phoenixes is way too much (as much as for 2 archdevils which will kick their asses for good). These make the race almost unplayable on larger maps, because the enemy will evolve much faster and will kick you out of the game long before you can make the phoenixes and recruit some of them.

Please, take this into account for the next balance patch!

Is possible to add plugin/mod which changes starting resources? I want to play at 200% but like HW_Rules adds 2500 gold. I want to add +2 all resources or something like that.

I think they should release smaller patches to repair things like RMG. Its literally unplayable. All the time enemy can bypass strong guards to reach my zone or all the time strong guards stand next to my town that I can't get out. Sometimes I must create map about 10 times... But i am playing with friend it's about 20 times. I hope this will be big patch for recompense.

I'll repeat this solution until it's implemented. The only way to prevent blocks is to clear the roads from monsters( except for zone guards). That won't solve the entire "fair for all sides" problem but at least number of tiring restarts will surely decrease.
