Again? I thought you had got over it. Have you noticed how little support your quest gets?

Leave town portal alone, too many maps depend on it.

HotA Crew loves the super OP Town Portal, I seem to remember they would'nt change it.
So apparently spamming this spell 10 times a day to 10 different towns is perfectly fine.
Now compare Town Portal with and without Earth Magic...
I'll never understand this design philosophy.


I'm not sure about the love, as the scroll of town portal already is worth 3x more than it's in SoD.

Imo changing Town portal mechanics at this point makes no sense to me, especially as Hota has an option for way bigger maps than the original game. Maybe some small tweaks would be fine like bigger mana cost or higher movement penalty.

How many times can you cast level 5 Dimension Door a day?, 1-4 times, level 4 Town Portal costs only 200 movement points, so you can easily cast it 10+ times a day, all for a very miniscule mana cost.
Town Portal is THE most broken spell in Heroes 3, next would be Dimension Door 4 times a day and Haste/Slow and Blind.

Not always minuscule mana cost. In the first months, it would be impossible to cast it too many times because it's gonna deplete your mana fast (and you also want to move that turn, but you have to wait in town for mana).

And since DD and TP are almost always banned in your PvP... Maybe only DD could be nerfed to less casts (3/day at exp.) since no map seems to depend on casting it 4 times/day.

Not if you have a Dungeon, then you can just Town Portal and instantly double your mana through Mana Vortex! There is also still Wizard's Well, which equals unlimited mana!

Wizard's Well is end-game (or mid-game for large maps), and well, Dungeon is just an exception. But mana vortex is just only once/week, so... (you might even replenish mana of secondary hero accidentally or because of hero-chain).

Wizard' Well is extremely easy to assemble.
It's also easy to ensure Mana Vortex always benefits your best hero. You almost don't need secondary heroes, when your main hero has Advanced/Expert Town Portal.

Man, I would send you a bottle of Don Pérignon, if I knew your address.

Beat my Power Castle Forever map keeping that perspective, post the pic of your High Scores here and I will send you a box.
And that is a fairly easy map...

TP isn't super OP. You've experience with computers. I will explain a little strategy. Opponents siege your territory, and expect you to use a TP, and attack you. No game has carried 10 months. Hasn't seen MP has played for many hours. Super OP is Fly, DD and Admiral's Hat. Why? Opponent will have time to take your town before you use a TP. You’re right, if you just go get an army and leave the town open. Therefore, many towns and heroes are important. If you can do it.

Following Phoenix footsteps

I would like to see the Pirates Cavern return to the all terrains page. Why? Nowadays, if you want you can ban it from appear in certain regions of the template, so no risk of having half a dozen just in front of a Necropolis (the reason I believe they were removed and we never got dragon banks) but I can't make them appear near Cove's starting areas using the amazing template editor (thx, Gruk).

this is far from the truth m8, having control spells and wanting maximizing the efficiency of them make secondary heroes even more essential, i dont see why you give your opinion on everything even though it seems like you dont have the expertise on the subject managing balance is hard and hota team has done a great job so far imo!!

It's called an opinion, it's my opinion and my experience, yours might be different or you just play different than me.
As far as I know stating your opinion is not illegal and since this is my favorite game I am extremely passionate about it. Modding, map making, playing and yes posting ideas on HC.

It is called annoyance. You keep repropagating your "opinions" every 10 pages in various threads. There's probably no single user around here who aren't aware of your disapprobation of Town Portal.
