So, here's a bit of digging I did this morning.

Bertram and Todd are ARTIFICERs. According to Cambridge English Dictionary: artificer a skilled craftsman (= someone who makes things), a skilled mechanic (= someone who repairs engines) in the army, navy, or air force.



The very first new building we see unveiled from  fog of war is called SERPENTARIUM. It's a place where snakes and sometimes other reptiles are kept for display or study.

As Witchking pointed on AcidCave's official forum - it might be a sign of Wind Serpent/Quetzalcoatl's presence in Factory's lineup. It makes more sens the more you read about these creatures and their ties with modern Mexico and old Wild West.


Wind Serpent? Quetzalcoatl?

All the gathered information allows me to make a wild guess. I suppose that we will be able to recruit Gnomes as a level 1 creature (good mechanics, a reference to Heroes 2 Halflings/Hobbits)
, Pyromancers (as an homage to the the concept of original FORGE) , Wind Serpents and Technomages (Its not backed by real evidence. I just want this unit to be something different from another gun-wielding human. We've already got in COVE and my wish number 2 - Dragon Golems. Aren't they awesome?



where did you find this news in the video?

All the screenshots included in my last post come from the original video teaser by HotA Team.

"The Lineup" is a pure speculation based on the video and backed with my excitement !

If you watch the teaser carefully enough you'll surely find all the portraits, graphics and names of heroes, classes and the adventure map building.

If it's actually going to be nearly a year or more until the release of content, then why even display it so soon? You might as well be a sexy girl flashing boobs at me, only to tell me i'm not getting any from you for a year. That's just cold-blooded, docent.

Again, i'm a hypocrite for stating that; but then again, i'm not a professional. So, i can't really be held accountable.

It may be again like the announcement of Forge.
Years passed by and there is no Forge released.

Just curious Fred... Are you collaborating with HotA team? I liked the terrain you envisioned for Forge, would be so nice to see it HotA...

'Artificer' it sounds familiar, isn't it?
Do you remember HoMM5. In Academy all heroes posses ability 'Artificer' which is dedicated only for this fraction.



What do you think it's only coincidence of names or maybe it's announcement of new dedicated fraction ability something like Necromancy for Necro ?

Artificer also sounds a bit similar to Alchemist. I don't think they will be connected to a new skill though. But I could see the faction have it's own war machine, like Cove.

I did 3 or more years ago, but not since then. I have my own work to do anyway; so there's no hard feelings. Same can be said with anyone i've worked with.

No, HotA Crew only provides estimated release dates through official news posts.  Trust me, if there was such information available, everyone would already know it by now.

As much as I like Westerns and Wild West aesthetics I'm hoping for it to be an adventure map tavern.


Saloon

After 3 days of posting, chating, hyping about the new fraction, unfortunately I need to say that come out of this new expansion isn't so crucial like modification in balance of the game.

So I decided to reminding about this as much as I can.

Below I added  in my opinion the crucial  stuffs to balance:
1. Secondary Skills like:
Eagle Eye, First Aid, Diplomacy, Learning, Mysticism, Sorcery - needs to be buffed.
2. Earth Magic needs to be nerfed,  especially slow. Some crucial spells should to be added to another schools of magic  e.g. Town Portal.

Developers has so many proposition on this forum to balance H3. I hope that they will do some modifications in the balance of the game sooner than the new expansion come out.

P.S.
It would be perfect gift for the 20th anniversary of H3.

3. Movement penalty why only 4 fractions out of 10 posses so unreasonable penalty for moving in start area? In my opinion each fraction should posses some kind of penalty for moving out of roads.

Who cares ? We need Factory !

The rebalancing of secondary skills and spells is still one of the highest priorities for the future versions of HotA.  The development of Factory will not affect these plans or the speed at which they are implemented.
