Hota devs are excluded from the draft due to Heroes 3 being a national heritage in Russia.


I always found it curious that the Russians have taken over H3, it's a very popular game there and has the biggest fandom, but it wasn't born there in Russia.


In my head, I always explained the popularity of this title in the eastern block by the simple fact of quite weak PCs during the '90s and '00s. This meant that newer, more demanding games were unavailable for those machines and therefore old games, that ran smoothly, were much more preferred and hence played more often. And now it basically runs on nostalgia.

But whether this is the true explanation or not is debatable. I just find it the most plausible.

Competitive Heroes 3 allows an almost infinite broad range of strategies, which the modding tools expanded even more. Russians are known to be best at chess, maybe it simply has to do with specific brain facilities and culture. What learn most of Russian kids? Classical music and chess.

I don't think is about weak or cheap computers, because then you would have China being much more involved. Heroes 3 is very popular in China yet didn't produce the same amount of tournaments, mods and overall enthusiasm.

I believe its cultural. Chess was always important in Russia and Eastern europe.
Homm is a turn based strategic game so its logical like they feel at home with homm.

Here in Argentina most of people bought consoles to play Fifa or others futbol games.

a little bit disappointing :/
at least someone from the team decided to share this information before everybody got his hopes up.

Quote from Lazy person translated with Chrome:
"the Factory does not come out for the new year, moreover, there is no “New Year’s post” in the plans."...

"... Also, do not expect a rebalance of skills, magic, and any other stats in the update. As I already noted, the Factory itself will greatly affect the balance of power in the game, even if we assume that we would have the strength to simultaneously develop the city and process, for example, magic, it would be even more difficult to balance all this at the same time."

The rest of the information from the post dont mention a release date, but it seems a lot is already done.

Hi Guys, a comment from a new one in the Forum:

I'm happy that "Lazy person" has updated the status of the development and shared some new Information with us, although we would have wished for other news. The status of the project is like it is, and we can't change that. Let's stay positive and support the developers on the last few steps to the new Version of the game.

They are now even considering the separation of the campaign and the town, which I think is a big step in the right direction for an earlier release. So stay calm and stay tuned for more news.

That really would be the best decision.
Not everyone cares about the campaigns anyway.

I will be objective and realistic with this situation this time, the project is not dead, but its very silent development makes me think that the project is semi-frozen, and if its released, it will be hopefully by the middle of next year, or else many years later.

I know there are many fans, with sons even who imposed their fanaticism on HotA, but I just hope that another future outstanding project like Day of Reckoning makes their recognition and people take it as an alternative to teach them to enjoy Heroes 3, instead of wanting to disappoint them in a project that may never be released as such.

I for one am happy to have confirmation so we can enjoy the new year without unrealistic expectations. As someone knee deep in project hell myself I hope that the team is doing fine and not letting impatient people get to them. I'm looking forward to it but it will be ready when it's ready.

Good luck on the remaining work team

Is Day of Reckoning released yet? I can't find much info in what state it currently is. I am really interested in giving it a try.

There you can get news. The latest update from the DoR Team was that there will be able to promise a release on new year's eve. But they would be working hard on the project in background.
I hope that it means we could get kind of a new trailer or a beta version in a few weeks of months. But maybe it's a wish
