Most of you guys haven't been here long enough to know about HC's gold age. When there was actual intellectual, thought provoking discussion, and a good HoMM game to go along with it.

This place is a shadow of its former self.

But then maybe I'm just a jaded old fool pining for the good old days.



to be honest Abe (Shinzo Abe) he is not wrong mate, bear in mind I have found a very intellectial and provoking discussion about taking the dump in the toilet lol

I have printed out this highbrow thread of poo and stuck it to the office suggestion board for the boss to read, I do not like shaking hands with him because he does not wash himself cheers lol

Jesus, my posts from the past read as if I was high 24/7.

Also speaking of which, I miss Truly_Cursed as well, though in my mind him and Insanity are essentially the same person. Also Thunder_Tits.

It's been a while since I've been really active here, but somehow I still have the third-highest post count. (And The_Hydra still has the highest total QPs.) Get your act together, people!

I don't know how long it took for The_Hydra to amass that much +QPs but in my opinion RoseKavalier is a solid candidate to beat him. I even think he's underqped a bit but ain't we all.

I've recently checked and found out that I've been here for 8 years. Hardly one of the relicts that predate the Reckoning of NWC with their on-line presence here but given that I was not planning to stay when I joined... yeah, quite some time.  
I was jumping between Ubisoft's official forum about Heroes V around the launch of the latter (where JJ was explaining to everyone in his typical calm manner that they are talking bull****, specifically about Inferno) and Celestial Heavens which, although having a better forum platform, felt largely abandoned - when I stumbled upon this Age of Heroes thing. It had a nice "reference book" for all Heroes games to date and frequent updates about the fifth installment, plus a much more populated forum than Celestial Heavens. So I jumped in. Can't remember what it was initially about but probably it had something to do with the terrible balance between the factions or that Ashan sucks (yes, it sucked from the very start, it was that obvious. "Griffin eternal", bloody hell!).
What made me stay after it became fairly certain that the franchise has no future in Ubisoft's hands is that the people here actually cared to discuss many other things beside HoMM and often the discussions were refreshingly varied and thought-provoking (and sometimes annoying of course - "You lie"®, coming from Elodin for example). Nowadays this has degraded into the occasional bickering between Sal and artu about who holds the keys to reality but frankly they are at least keeping the place from hibernating completely and the mods from forgetting that they have some other functions than talking trash in the VW like a bunch of unemployed war veterans . The place still has its charm though. Now, with no movement on the Heroes front (praise Baa for this), it's more like an archeological museum combined with a pub. Most people relax in the pub and go the museum every now and then to water the nostalgia. *Sigh*

Now now, Zenofex, do not confuse me or Sal with fred, who actually believes he got “reality” all figured out by all angles and is simply the photographer of it. (You even take the phrase holding the key to reality from a very recent objection of mine about that.) Me and Sal’s “mutual bickering” are not about that, we are both a little more mature than that, although we can both be quite “passionate” about our opinions. From my perspective, things are usually deadlocked when Sal is acting like he is not strongly opinionated or politically motivated, he is only (from his perspective) “just asking what any normal citizen would ask.” But he doesnt do that because he acts like he knows everything, neither do I object to him because I think that about myself. I think that’s the main reason we haven’t stopped communicating to begin with, despite we can sometimes get a little edgy towards each other. Social polarization is the new fact almost everywhere and we two witness very different poles when it comes to which pole is the socially dominant one, “the political correctness” he is fed up with and the authoritarian conservatism I am fed up with are both the result of tsunami-like change, in a pace seen like never before. HC in general is also affected by this “brave new world.” We ALL turn a little more like Elodin, and less like Baklava, unfortunately, to reminisce a few old-timers.
When I look back on relatively old times in here, say six or five years ago when I was a newcomer or mid 2000’s just as a reader, I don’t see some “golden age” with constant “thought-provoking” quality stuff. But there is certainly less trolling, less chest-pounding by name-calling and more chess-pounding. () And that is, to me, mostly about tempo of change making masses feel unsafe, to a point where deliberate ignorance starts to feel like “realism” to them. Anybody will get his share, even the ones who stand against this in theory.

Also, internet has too many alternatives these days, so, even a small drop in quality will push away qualified posters faster than non-qualified ones. Unless, you are a real creature of habit. That’s what’s mainly common in the ones who still stay here. They are the kind that likes to go to that bar in the corner for 20 years rather than discovering a new one every week. Has it’s ups and downs and not necessarily mutually exclusive but I guess, you know what I mean.

Now, now, artu. Don't get upset because i figured out reality before you did; because you're so subservient and blind to think reality comes from books written by biased people with an agenda and a paycheck in mind.

I found this place by chance, sometime before H5 came out. I'd missed a lot but even so, the H5 period was a good time to join. Plenty of activity, friendly people for conversation, feeling the game evolution patch by patch. And how crappy it was before tote! Fun times with Alci, Doom and so many others that have long since gone. I eventually ventured out of the temple in search of fun and adventure. And I found it, along with a lot of vw lameness heh. I remember hc by the generations of its posters and many of them left their mark. But as with everything, time passes by and people move on. I have lived though a good time here and I'm glad for that. Bonus points for learning the secrets of the modsquad

HC improvements? Ditch the vw and make the tavern a good place to be once more. I also wish there was more life in the glade. I miss misty.

Why remain? There are still good people here even if most are no longer in the habit of making fun threads But then neither am I, have been preoccupied with my share of things. Sometimes I wish I spent more time here but for now I take things as they come and as I feel. I try to keep in touch and there are people I wish I saw more often.

Part 2, Anecdotes

Anyone remembers thanatos and his incessable spamming? I used to silence him as soon as he made a new account to flame us some more. The moment I became aware of his presence I would pre-emptively silence all his known accounts. Do you know how much fun it is to watch a troll write a flame topic for over 10 mins and knowing he'll hit a brick wall when he presses submit? I do There was also a time when I'd pre-emptively silenced him without his ip finding a match. I knew it was him but there was no foolproof way to verify my suspicions. And he did contact me, complained, said he'd report me and stuff. When he saw I wouldn't budge, he admitted he was messing with me. And holy crap, the time the whole forum made him stop without mod intervention? I still remember dagoth derailing him with talk of impressionist art, I was so proud!

Killa bee, who returned to HC because he supposedly saw his name signed under a basterd's tourney that he'd joined some 15 years back lol. He started flaming, my diplomacy failed and he started snowposting all over HC with more and more accounts as he was getting silenced. Eventually I decided to taunt him with a vw thread so he stopped making new threads and I could delete his posts en masse without much fuss. Who'd have guessed that would actually work?

There was a time genielord contacted me on msn. A (not so sirius)friend was there and he naturally replied in my place. He was being so wacky that genielord asked me if I was drunk. My friend said just 2 bottles and kept it up. I'm not sure if he believed me after I told him about my friend ^^

Azzie, so many fun times with him. In one of them we were fighting a duel to a standstill with a golem stack on my side and a regenerating unicorn stack on his. I had 1 luck and getting a luck on that turn was the only way for me to turn the game around. So I tell him, you know it. Lo and behond, the golems get a kick@ss lucky attack and a good chunk of his unicorns go down. The messages that followed were along the lines of O_0, 0_o, !!!!, HOW, WHAT Oh the humanity!

Becoming a mod wasn't actually in my plans, some of you probably know it was Alci that roped me into it. Even so, Val only read my application a few days - no, possibly in the last day before it expired even! I am unsure if I was ever gonna resend it.

Acu's flame wars and sex posts? TA's k? Vangelis' drama threads? Oh right, Vangelis was a fellow Greek I randomly bumped on in ubi forums. He had a tendency to be blunt and distrust other players so when he made a toh thread, you knew things were gonna get messy. Vesuvius started renaming his threads another Vangelis drama.

The Pan-Geny-Elvin threeway. Oh how satisfying it was to get the timing right! Or the peanut planter's academy, followed by the *ahem* sour ram testicles copycat Peanuts were good fun up until Geny went and ate them all.

Alci, we've had some good times playing good cop and bad cop. There was a random moment in the vw when I edited someone's post for teh lulz. He edited saying I feel so violated And Alci added another edit, get used to it! That was so good.

Mysty has had many good threads but M.E.G.A and Gladerion were some of my favourites. I used to know her from CH, before she migrated here. Same with omega, panda, winterfate and asandir, alas the fellowship was broken :/ Glad panda is still here.

Anyone remembers Xhane's H5 contests? They'd contacted me to arrange some forum games and hand out homm figurines to the winners. I knew it was gonna cost me more but I made more contests as an appreciation to all the posters and their interests: Map editor, modding, writing, perk/faction design.. Adrius even got the archangel he wanted! I did not even open the packages, he was that lucky.

Ad's fun times, I always thought him to be the heart and soul of HC. Like baklava and Azzie amongst others. I remember xerox's troll beginnings when he threatened to pee on HC haha. Lexxan, Asheera, overlord, darksy, phoenixreborn, orfinn, joonas, cepheus, Avirosb, Aosaw, Vlaad, edn, emilsn, Jiriki, wolfsburg, mike, will, daystar, homer, tnt, beta, markkur, stormy, gnomes, it's hard to believe these guys disappeared. Then there were Luc's crazy ramblings and KD settelment infestation across the internets XD

Or that time carcity wanted to have an emo haircut and I messaged everyone I could think of to put an emo carcity pic(sadly I cannot remember who made it) in their signatures. The next day half the forum had that signature and no doubt many heads were scratched in confusion.

My April Fool's homm threads that pissed off a number of people ^^ Ceph even helped me in one, about some supposed leaked info. I remember someone telling me that he was so angry that he told his mother about it. Still makes me smile.

You know the VAL WILL HEAR NOTHING. But you should have seen when I asked MM what happens if we try to silence Val. He silenced and made a screenshot with many HAHA around it

Shyranis youtube uploads were damn good. Evinin's stories. Lizzie's hc comics. Ad's epic xerox memes. The Death's quote wars ^^ Genielord's fictional thread! I hope he's doing well out there. The Gootch's I dislike everyone, what makes you so special ^^ Or that time Joonas returned to pick a fight with me haha. Fred's reaction was totally worth the ruse.

The temple of Ashan quiz with Alci, TDL and matrix was a great time too. The forum activity was high and people would happily play along, participate and create new things.

The Duels that got the shy casuals(and a few tohers) out of their shells Bliz, veco, azzie, pera, final boss, pei, skprimus, lepastur, towerlord, radar, albolabris, samiekl, Arcax, jaba, watcher, fiur, Matt and eugen amongst others. It was well worth the qp showers that followed! There was also an H6 team: Nikolas, simpelicity, Dave Jame, Poly, Gameslayer, locksley, pancakes(), zenithale, redemperor and more.

HC soap opera, the superhero creation thread, meroe, kookie and mysty's heartwarming tavern threads. There is much that I miss. Good thing that kip still manages the picture thread, kudos for that.

I almost forgot the HC awards! Fantastic thread that gave many insights to everyone, including me. Thanks to azzie and noobie for that one.

If your name is not here I'm probably more disappointed than you are. This is but a drop of HC history and there is way too much to cover to do it justice. That or you are not a fossil just yet!
