I've been playing an HotA map where you need to accumulate 500 cyclops by visiting Wolfraider Pickets and in my opinion the battles are too easy for the size of the reward, it should be 25% to 50% less.


post it in 'Suggestions' forum. i already did a while ago

my reasoning was to raise amount of Wolf Raiders rather than diminish the reward

Is there any news about the incomming magic rework? Ive been excited about this feature for years. One of the reasons I reduced my homm activity to 10% of what it used to be is I really dislike how the best spells in the game are level 1 (Mass slow, mass haste mostly)
And mass slow makes the whole game for me (i'm also annoyed that the community decided Fly, diplomacy and necro are too much but mass slow is ok)

So what im saying is that ive been waiting for this for years and it never seems to be close to done.

Is htere any news about if this year is the year?

I wouldn't say Slow and Haste are the best spells in the game. Just the two with the most utility. There are much better spells at higher tiers. Like Lightning Bolt, Blind, Weakness, Mirth, Misfortune, Meteor Shower.

I never really used Diplomacy so I am unsure about what it is like right now, but I totally agree with Necromancy. It needs a little tlc maybe.

All of those spells are worse than mass Haste and Slow, except maybe Blind and Meteor Shower in certain situations.
The fact that they are +5/-50% is insane, I have them at +3/-30% in my game, which is much more reasonable.

True they are a little ridiculous.

But I find myself recently using both of them in early game. Late game I trade them out for others. Mostly because most of the time by late game opponents have access to Dispel/Cure.

And you will probably wait a couple more or then the outcome will not be as you expect. Take the matter in your own hand and start modding!

Is it possible to delete the top entry of the high score?

I made a test map, beat AI hero, forgot to close game and now the 1 day testmap is sitting at Nr. 1 in Highscore

It's funny because I actually did mod heroes 3 a lot, i have my own WOG version with a lot of scripts of my own, like anti chaining, wayts to instantly know the worth of gold of an army you can see (or the estimaate if its enemy), and..yes MY OWN MAGIC SYSTEM, including the ability to pay extra resources to get the spells you want in the tower (similar to HOTA reresearch system). all good and running in WOG. (though I don't have the magic system finished for the reasons later mentioned)

The probelm is.....I have no one to play with. Whatever you mod, it's worthless if people are not willing to play with you.

However if HOTA developers push it...well people will play it.
I love the ability to play online with other players in hota, that's actually the most important feature of hota.
So, no, even if i mod it myself Its not enough, i need to create a whole community of people that want to play my mod too to be worthwhile, I don't know how to do it or lack the skills needed to do it.

Okay you have a fair point here. If multiplayer is what you want than HotA is certainly your best way to go. No WoG Mod can accomplish what the HotA + HD mod crew did in terms of multiplayer.
I'm also interested in what they will bring on the table in terms of "magic rework", well I keep my expectations low to say at least ^^ but I will gladly let me surprise in a positive way.

Question for HotA Crew:
Why does Cove's heroes start with so many Crew Mates and Pirates? They start with much more level 2 & 3 units than any other town.

I also often find myself asking if it's fair that Cove has a hero that starts with a cannon, one that has both Estates and +350 gold specialty, one that has Logistics and Scouting specialty and one that starts with advanced Navigation and has Navigation specialty.

Edit:
Just wanted to add that I really don't like how you ruined ballista specialists. Why stick to a ballista, when you could have a much superior cannon?
I see two solutions for this problem: 1) Have ballista and cannon specialists specialise in both ballista and cannon. 2) Make ballista as strong (and expensive) as cannon.

Finally I wish ballista, cannon and arrow towers would stop shooting at blinded targets.

add to that all main might heroes start with Offense except Nav specialist, 2 scouts and 1 with Armorer, which makes them half-way decent barbarian clones

they are definitely not ruined. Cannon has 8 shots while Ballista 24

Heard of an Ammo Cart or winning the battle before using 8 shots?

heard of wiping your a** with Armageddon ?

two can play this game as you can see, haha


one thing you're right though. given 4k amount of gold to spare, no sane player will pass this opportunity to bring a Cannon to PvP

other than that, for PvE there is not much difference and Ballista is actually more efficient with 24 shots. but must have Artillery skill for 4x more damage. without Artillery skill Cannon is a lot better with double stats obviously

if you are worrying about the specialty aspect, do not, because it's barely noticeable. 20lvl Ballista specialist will muster out 10% extra damage

I'm not sure if you understood what I was actually trying to say.
Ballista specialists are supposed to use ballista, but the cannon is better, therefore they should choose cannon instead of ballista. That will however make their specialty useless!

it's already useless. only 10 % extra damage on lvl 20. Crag Hack, Tazar, Orrin gets a double skill on lvl 20

It says on the documentation of the RNG in hota that choosing water creates unplayable maps, however I tried again and again and all maps  with water seem playable to me. Whats going on?

Heroes Orchestra is a group from Poland, I've been at their concert. They are very good! Although I didn't know they were also playing music from Hota :-)

So, apparently there will be a demo of the Factory town and the wasteland terrain that will be presented in a festival held in Moscow.

Hopefully they will release it globally at some point.
