Try to fix some level of useless ;)

Straker has no escuse to win the useless price hero!
Piquedram at least can give u some usefull troops! ..... But I think we thinking in start phase of game, cause with 1.000.000 experience pts in every hero and with throng of level 7 creatures.... the disscusion may be slightly different and i think all of us would want to have a power hero, and the "Crack Hag" dissapointing I read up may change to love comments to "Crack Hag".


So my comments to choose a useless hero is that depends of map time develop playability (End at week 03, 10, 50, ...) but Straker sucks me in some games so still have some issues to resolve with him .. and still hate him...


P.D.: I think, not, I'm sure, Crack is a powerfull hero specilly if u are Tower and can learn archery. Even with out arch

Thx for reads.

Yuup. It's the difference between single player and multi-player again. In multi, we ALMOST NEVER see week 10 and for sure never see week 50. We are looking for 3 week games on most maps (or less).

Even Piquedram could be good at level 30 I suppose but he gives you a really bad start for a 3 week game. I would take Straker any time over Pique

As for Crag Hack... he can play well for any length of game if he can find a cloak!

If he can find a cloak? Sure this does make him powerful as ole hell...

But why?

Eagle Eye is the most useless skill in Heroes 3, even worse than Scouting or Navigation, which at least have some usefulness at certain times. I would pick Crag Hack over any Eagle Eye hero at any time, but I will, however, pick any town over Stronghold any day!

Stronghold is the worst town. Even worse than Necropolis.

By the time I have my Stronghold fully upgraded and killing you, you will still be wondering how the hell you are going to get titans.

Don't need Titans to kick Stronghold's @$$.

Just get Arch Magi, Master Genies, Master Gremlins, and Slow, Blind. Blind/Slow your birds, Blind/Slow your already-slow Behemoths, pick of your Orc Chieftans, and cut your Goblins and Wolf Raiders to bits.

The only troop I actually like from Stronghold is Ogre Magi; they're tough, failrly inexpensive, and they cast Bloodlust. Not bad, even for Stronghold.

I'll take Fortress over Stronghold any day though.

I'll admit, I'm a little biased. I prefer magic, and I was being a bit of a smart-aleck in my battle-description above.

I still like Tower the best. And might will probably win on a smaller map, with easy access; but I think on a larger map, with more difficult access (and thus more time for hero development), magic will be dominant.

poor advice... it actually works the other way around, the longer the game, the more troops, hence the stronger might is. magic is based on stats, and once u get arties in area they stop going up (with any significance). I know almost noone at the top level of play who would use a magic hero as #1. This doesnt include battle mages, cuz level like a might hero.

A properly-developed magic hero can render might troops useless. Blind, Berserk, mass Slow, friendly mass Haste, Expert Implosion or Meteor Shower . . . the list goes on.

Might is good, but the trick is to neutralize their strength (which is superior numbers of troops, usually) and then systematically eliminate them.

ok listen, I'm only going to say this once...

Theres a battle, you have soly and full tower army, I have hack and full stronghold army. Lets say I go first because I attacked, being the aggressor. My thunderbirds go first and I cast mass haste, therefore my birds, ancients, wolfraiders, cyclops and hobgoblins go first, before your titans ore genies. My stats would be...20 20 10 10 with exp offense and armour, yours would be 10 10 20 20 with exp earth air intel maybe sorcery. How do you actually win this fight when I have decimated your army before you even move?

Magic heroes would be very happy if those spells did not exist.
