Do you consider logistics heroes better than Offense/armorer specialists?

They are banned for a reason, but I would personally say that it depends on the map and faction. The bigger the map, the more powerful they are.

Logistics heroes are banned?, but Offense, Armorer and Intelligence specialists are allowed?

I did not say I liked that system myself, for I believe Offense/Armorer specialists to be too powerful. Nevertheless it is what it is.

I just asked since I pretty much find all 4 specials overpowered.
Probably the 4 best specials in the game imo.

Logistic specialists are more convenient. What I hate the most is a hero that barely moves. Every turn screams wasted potential.

to be honest, Tazar is best with his own town - Fortress and can be faster to clear the map. but Hack assimilates better with any other town than Stronghold from day 1

In the classic HoMM 3 however Mr. Hack outshines Tazar in multiplayer games since he will drain the map much quicker and with less losses. That is the plain and simple reason for why he is better. That is not to say that Tazar is bad or can't clear a map efficiently, it's just that Crag does that far better, and that is usually a strong reason for scoring a victory.


Sorry but I can't agree.
Tazar has a better chance for mass slow. And i mean much much better chance. Also multiplayer gameplay tempo is all about clearing banks and in most of them, especially the bigger ones, it is impossible to avoid being hit, if you want to clear them fast anyway. Especially conservatories where you are usually able to take retaliation from maximum 2 griffin stacks. Tazar tempo isnt any slower than Hacks.

You are mixing SP and MP in this... Intelligence is only overpowered in custom maps and specially campaigns, where imbalanced may require some exploits. In MP the battle will be over much sooner then that and humans probably won't fall in your traps.

Okay once again I was confirmed in Gunnar being the best hero. (at least for singleplayer)
I normally win my XL +underground map in 101-171 days. (bear in mind that I play with different rules, like no Shackles of War, DD only once per day, TP only to nearest town and no Wizard's Well, so it's not because I'm extremely slow.) Last time I won was with Gunnar and I was honestly baffled as I did it in just 95 days, fastest win ever. I even nerfed skill specialists from 5 -> 3% per level.
So once again I can conclude Gunnar is probably the best hero and quite overpowered. (for singleplayer)

Yes Tazar (and Crag Hack) are better figthers, but Gunnar get things done!...
I'm not saying Gunnar is the definitive answer, but I personally consider him the most powerful hero.
Tazar and Crag Hack are great in battles, but do they actually clear the map faster?, that's what it's all about...

Depends, Gunnar usually has the advantage of speed, however if Crag/Tazar get Logistics fast it's a whole different thing.

Overlords however have what I consider best chance for good skills at leveling up, and starting with two fantastic skills makes thing even easier. Can't remember a game where my Gunnar didn't end "perfect" (Log, Tac, Off, Arm, Intel, Wis, Earth, Air). Can't say the same about Tazar or Crag.
