When people criticise there's too many humanoids already I say there's too many dragon-like/reptiloid critters already.

Hi guys I wanna ask some few questions about hota lobby:
1) will be ever a way for leavers to get punished, like dota 2 you get low priority?
2)Will be ever the possibility to spectate a game of someone else?
3)Does anybody know how rating points work?
4)Can you play rank on a already existing map of the game (not random map) and if yes, can AI participate in this game?
5)Will ever be updates on game, i mean like rearrange some skills spells creatures etc?

Thanks, and get ready for new questions

Kirin would be very cool to have in Heroes. (Or Quetzalcoatl)


Yes and it's actually pretty accurate. We have Green/Gold Dragons which are heavily inspired by Chinese Dragons in H3 and 3DO originally planned something like a Kirin in their version of Heroes V.

so much as i know

1) very likely
2) not likely
3) formula is not published anywhere. however more point difference equals more points gained/lost. also, longer game duration is more points gained/lost
4) no
5) cosmetic changes, balance changes, and new content

Quetzalcoatl is reference to Aztec culture. Major cult center Temple of the Feathered Serpent.
Below I've added few graphics.

Image formatting is your friend.
And yes, I imagine we saw quetzalcoatl at least once...

5) when you say balance changes do you mean rearrange some skills and creatures(attack defence etc)? and what about the new content?
thank you for all the aswers

If this unknown creature was Quetzalcoatl it would be awesome.  But personally I'm not quite convinced that recruiting building as a “Serpentarium” is the best choice.  This creature is reference to Aztec culture and in my opinion pyramid would be better choice for such a great and rather powerful unit. This pyramid may look similar to the pictures above. Additionally may contain snake motifs e.g: pictures or snake statues at the entrance ...

P.S.
I can understand that this building need to be a part of Factory and must remind its character. So maybe “Serpentarium” can contains a bit more from pyramid than industrial design ...

The question is how much Factory is an 'Engineers' town, and how much a haven for "like-minded" creatures or alternatively what is the relation of Artificers to those creatures. Are the serpents natural creatures or some sort of artificially-boosted snakes (mecha-wings?).

I guess we need to wait for more materials from the HotA team. So far it looks like a peculiar mix of various themes (Steampunk, Wild West, wasteland etc) so it's hard to pinpoint the direction in which the other unannounced units might go design-wise.

The thread title is "announcements" or "speculations"? Go somwhere else and stop wasting people's time.

@blob2Yeah, this is a good question – because till now we didn't see to many engineering stuffs (despite flame thrower). I can't wait to see more stempunk technology.

@blob2 Quite interesting … I like this option. Now I figured out that creature at the last but one photo added by me  seems to be a bit mechanical.

@blob2 Yeah I can agree with you. But this waiting is tiring

I believe we should lower our expectations, balancing a new town ain't easy, specially if with multiplayer in mind. Do you remember  Grotto used to cost just 1000 gold? Yeah.

Lately this thread has become a bit poluted again with suggestions and such, so I would like to ask everyone again to keep in mind that this thread is intended for announcements and questions with regards to the HotA expansion, not for suggestions.

Please, everyone, try to keep that in mind. You can post your suggestions in this thread. Thanks - also in the name of the creators of the HotA expansion.

Virus?

I've been trying to update the Heroes 3 along with the Horn expansion via the launcher and both BitDefender and Windows are freaking out thinking they are viruses. Even when I went to the original website where I originally got them, they think the websites are compromised... Anyone else ran into this?

there should be a disclaimer at the very top of the op(and for the vcmi thread), big enough for the gods to read, that says,

"OUR MOD/ADDON ISN'T A VIRUS. STOP POSTING THAT YOUR ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE GAVE YOU A FALSE POSITIVE. JESUS H. CHRIST."

I'm not sure. Do you know what their .dll libraries do? Without seeing the source code? You better trust your antivirus, not people on the Internet.
