Oddball I 100% agree with you.
There IS an option to get the classic Resistance skill though. In the HotA launcher it's called "Activate test updates".
Oh! Well that is good to know. Is that option also on the HD Launcher? I suppose it doesn't really matter.

I guess resistance is just too much of a showstopper. Either it turns the tide completely, or does nothing. Not the greatest thing if battles are decided by a 20% dice roll. Easy example would be if you blind the opponent's snowball stack but resist getting yours blinded. That's pretty much a victory right there. Same if you try to counter the opponent's haste with a slow and it gets resisted by his snowball stack, extreme disadvantage.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, if one spell dictates the outcome of your battle, you aren't playing the game right (this is ignoring spells like Resurrect and Sacrifice, I am talking about the spells mentioned above, like Slow or Haste). Oh well my opponent resisted the Slow, time to adjust my strategy. Will it make the battle a bit more difficult and dealing with his units a tad more problematic? Most definitely. Doesn't mean I automatically lose.  

Also why would anyone counter a Blind with another Blind. If the opponent had half a brain they'd probably respond with a Cure/Dispel.  

Also Battle Dwarves have a better chance of resisting a spell than a creature who's Hero has Expert Resistance.

Then stop saying this because it's wrong. A single spell in the correct moment may win you the game.

You may not have the opportunity to recover from a first strike if it's done properly. Casting mass haste/slow and countering it properly is probably among the few things you absolutely need to learn if you want to have a chance against good players online.

Used to playing AI? against a thinking human, the 1st turn advantage is usually impossible to recover from. Whomever wins 1st round will likely win the combat altogether.

disabling the opponent's snowball stack may be of higher importance than healing your own - if his is better than yours. That's what a full brained opponent would do. I guess the "half a brain" one would indeed attempt to cure his stack and get chewed up in return.

And how many Battle Dwarves snowballs have you seen when fighting other people?

I've seen it utilized by hipster players a couple times but in general blinding a unit with like 40 damage per population, slow speed, melee, walking, and without a "conservatory" type of building to stack them isn't high on the priority list. Hence, they may as well have more magic resistance and it will not be that much of a problem. Unlike a stack of wyverns or angels resisting blind once you cast it after opponent's slow, for example. That very well may cost you a game because you cannot recover from a slow and will get counterslowed/counterhasted every turn you attempt it. It's basically giving the opponent a free slow/haste.

Your can bypass the Resistance entirely by just casting spells on their OWN creatures. So if they don't want the battle to be decided by "random" (H3 has many randoms...), they can bypass it completely by using other strategies.

Plus, Dwarves and Unicorns still use the old Magic Resistance so what is the point of using it for some things and not others?
