Poll Question:
Spell (Portal Gate)

The spell is used then you want to portal to home (to get some creatures) and then to portal to the same place(where you came from).

Great idea!

Great idea! Ive wanted such a spell for quite some time! The trouble is of course...that it would maybe be too effective, but on the other hand so is Town Portal at expert level so...

If you're not expert you portal only to nearest town.
(As original portal)

HOMM4

I recently talked to one of 3DO producers, and yeah, they are modifying Heroes to be like AOE (Age of Empires). I told to hold on to that thought. They said they'll wait for polls to come in anyways. SO "up or down." You guys decide. The game's gonna come in August. Make decisions fast. I'll talk to my uncle (one of the game programmers at 3DO) about this. Fill you guys in later.

Hey TC_Fear

Very good idea!!

Actually what do you think of following - Ability with EARTH magic or some other to put MAGIC GATES on the map - so you can transfer there. It's like your idea - you only put a GATE, and they you can go back there - of course TOWN GATE/PORTAL will dissapear or will be lower in quality than this one.

The bad thing can be that enemy hero can use this GATE for himself too... Heh... will be fun...

MAGIC GATES!!! for maaa skeletons!!

and TC_Fear: On a previous post - you were asking If I'm from Russia - no I'm from Bulgaria and we used to watch a lot of "NU ZAJATZ, POGODI" time ago - one of my favourite animation movies made from Russia (also "JA HOCHU VOZITSJA NA MARUSJA!") i tak i tak... hehehe... was GREAT fun watching all this movies... KinDzaDza... for example

Will 3DO/NWC show something on E3-Expo? Do you know? I mean i'm game developer and I have to go there - but I better go some place better this three days - if they'll not gonna display anything...

And please, don't hurt our souls with saying things that AUGUST the game will be released - what if not - they've said 15 Septemeber - don't make us crying for nothin'

But hope you are right about AUGUST!! I can't wait anymore...

Yes.. but to get back where you were.. after getting reinforcements from you castle.. You have to have another castle there as destination.. . Which would make this portal-spell useful...

This Spell You Speak Of

Great Idea, but to balance it out it should last 2 turns, it should take 1 turn to get through (end of hero's turn) and one more turn to get your new recruits and get into the portal (end of hero's turn)

Thanks,

Mojo

Sorry but I think this stinks

Come on, do you want it all? I mean town portal is nice enought to run home or go get army, to actually want to come back to where you were (to continue clearing area with fresh troops or attack opponent) with this magic portal is imho a load of crap.  you have to have some payment for having even  the power of town portal (i.e. marching back to where you went home from)

NO!!

snow I do not want homm IV to be like aoe that game is completely diffrent from homm III and I would really like it to stay that way. No affense to those of you that actually like to play aoe, but I don't. And I do not think I would play homm IV that much if it became so much similar to aoe !!!

Actually some types of Portal Spells would be really Nice:

One spell would be called "Far Portal" or something similar, it would first require the hero to cast the spell to "set the destination" and be very expensive (At least 100 mana), also each hero only has 1 portal destination (and you can't use other heroes destinations).

Other Spells that would be nice are:

Activate Gate: Any portal on the map which is sealed (turned off), can be turned on...  the chance for success is 10% per skill level + ((Power of spell caster-power of seal)x5%)

Seal Gate: Turns off a portal on the map, and seals it with a power level equal to the POWER of the spell caster x (1+(Level of magic proffiencyx.4))

Attune Gate: Same as seal, but your heroes can still use the gate (it is only off for enemy heroes).

Also in the map editor, you can set portal to be Active or sealed (and at what level is the seal cast).

I don`t like aoe and that`s why I`m playing HOMM so....

If HOMM4 becomes aoe I won`t play it!!!
I mean that there are lots of things that still have to be developed in that game.And I stand up for everybody who don`t want aoe to be a pattern for HOMM4

And about the portal spells.I like the suggestion or Mordred best.Otherwise they can add the Lloyd Beacon spell(for all who haven`t played Might & Magic it`s the spell which when you go to a place, you put a beacon on it and you can return to that place later by recalling the beacon - but the beacon stays for a period of time that depends on your Water magic points, which here in HOMM could be the Spell Power points.)
