      First, I would make it so that magogs can't harm demons, bc it's dumb as hell for them to have a ranged unit that hurts its own troops.

      Anonymous

      HotA tried and did an...okay job of it. First thing was reducing the cost of a lot of buildings so climbing the tech tree isn't awful. Second was actually implementing negative luck so Arch Devils aren't fucking worthless. They're still one of the least cost efficient units in terms of stats, but having -2 luck can massively swing combat since it halves damage.
      But even still it didn't make the faction actually good, just slightly less bad. It's still obnoxious to play as well because the optimal way of playing is to demon farm with pit lords which is fucking aids. Get rid of demon farming and give pit lords another ability or just give the entire faction more base stats across the board. Alternatively make fire spells not the worst in the game (inferno's mage guild is more likely to get fire spells).

        I think learning is negative, bc you don't need it on most maps. Unless you're playing a campaign or a really long custom map, it's better to pick an actual skill. Pathfinding is only useful when rough terrain is around. You can see here that it only helps sometimes: https://heroes.thelazy.net/index.php/Pathfinding

        It's not exactly negative, but you'd better get some actual buffs over maybe being a level higher. Also iirc learning was not retroactive in H3 so unless you got it really fast it was dead weight.

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        1. Opportunity cost
        2. Unlike in Might and Magic, its capped at very low bonus gain, and your level caps out at 20-30 anyhow so it doesn't fundamentally work.

        tl:dr a learning specialist won't be a additional 3-4 levels higher than a normal hero
        And the opportunity cost is MASSIVE

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        It takes up a skill slot and doesn't benefit the hero much at all. It's the same as Swift Learner in Fallout.

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Others touched on it but I'll explain more
        In Homm3, your experience growth is exponential, it's very easy to get to level 15-20, but you might only get to 25-30+ on XL maps unless you find a ton of trees of knowledge (which don't even get benefit from learning). Gaining 15% more experience means that you will only be one, MAYBE two levels ahead of any other hero given same amount of combat. See this chart:
        https://heroes.thelazy.net/index.php/Experience
        So you're giving up an entire skill slot, and anywhere from 0 to 3 points worth of levels to get that skill ranked up, to get MAYBE 2 points of primary stats. Knowledge gives +10 spell points per level, rarely is this an issue once you get to high level between normal growth and artifacts giving you enough. If you need more spell points (dimension door hopping for instance), then get Intelligence, which DOUBLES your total points. Spell power increases the strength of all your spells, but once again by the time you get to level 15 and get some artifacts, you'll likely be fine. The best spells don't need more than 4-5 spell power (mass haste, mass slow, etc), and if you're actually trying to play dedicated spell caster with nukes like armageddon or implosion, you want Sorcery which is 15% more damage. For might heroes, one point of ATK above the enemy's DEF is +5% damage, and 1 more DEF is -2% damage taken if your DEF exceeds the attacking unit's ATK. So even assuming you get 2 levels of attack (not guaranteed), it's only a measly +10% more damage dealt compared to offense which gives +30%.
        >why not both offense and learning?
        Because you only get so many spell slots and there are so many better choices for the oppportunity cost. See the tier lists posted for which are the best, basically everything has an incredibly strong niche use at least, but learning has none.

          A whole goddamn lot. It revamps a lot of old mechanics, adds new ones, improves the enemy AI significantly, rebalances a lot of stuff, combines all three campaigns into one and overall goes all out to improve the game. The issue is, vanilla campaign AI doesn't comprehend the new mechanics, so the AI just breaks, making campaigns hilariously easy at best and unplayable at worst, because something broke.

        NTA, but yeah, that's why I feel this game really comes onto its own only with all the expansions and 5.5. If 5.5 worked as intended with the campaigns, I would even say that HoMM V might take over HoMM III as my favourite in the series.

      From the Polish perspective:
      It was in Polish, with a really good translation and dub
      It was dirt cheap
      It was widely accesible
      It ran on a potato
      And it's a fun game.
      As for the Polish gf - memorize the entire Witcher saga, start listening to heavy metal, get into Warhammer and VtM, beat Baldur's Gate several times. This might land you some nerdy, cute metalhead Polish gf if you are lucky. Not necessarily a Stacy, but you take what you can get.

        You know why? Because the console prices weren't localized, so the consoles and console games (at least in Poland) were ridiculously expensive. It was cheaper to buy yourself a mid-range PC than a fucking PS1. Back in my day, every kid on the block who owned a console was considered a snob that loves to throw away money.

        I genuinely can't think of other game series has specialized in high polish high impact gameplay since 1986.
        Sure there might be a game that has 1-2 releases and falls of the face of the earth as the company behind it crashed and burned in one of the many economic cycles since the 80s, but as far as I am aware it alongside Mario is the only high quality game series with successive releases since 1980s.

        So its not merely popular in USA, its one of the most popular franchises with the most impact everywhere Nintendo consoles are distributed for economic gain.

        H3 is very different because it do not stand on a series of exceptional product quality. Instead it stands on the longterm CRPG craze of the 80s, with random game quality depending on what the finances & visions of New World Computing dictated.
        In the end the franchise stopped dead in its tracks because they got bankrupted by 3DO, instead of building further ahead.
        So as a result their Magnus Opus is Heroes 3 and Might and Magic 6, who are good despite the fact 3DO ended up bankrupting NWC.

The former gives a new, well made and ballanced town(and sometimes in the future another one) and a shitton of map buildings and ballance changes. H3SW changes the game so it looks and feels more like homm2 but in heroes 3 engine. It changes all the towns, adds 2 additional ones, and makes the graphics look just like in heroes 2.

              I play HotA and once in a while WoG.
              One thing that bothers me with HotA is that it's basically objectively an improvement over vanilla for the most part, but then for some fucking reason they decided to change the sprites for pikemen and orcs, and they simply look worse.

              Nice, have fun anon.

              I tried it, it's alright. I kind of like some of the decisions they made, like giving you more freedom in what you want to build, allowing you to stack specific units if you want. It works well with the magic system too, since you can focus on units that give you specific mana as well. The magic in general is pretty interesting, but I feel like the spells themselves are shit, boring effects and not particularily powerful. Also having only 4 factions is a bit of an issue. By the way the way they implemented custom made maps and having them available so easily from the main menu is awesome, great implementation.
              But ultimately I just find myself going back to HoMM 3, 4 or 5 anyway. Somehow didn't pull me in too much.

      I played a lot of the first one, and started armored princess.
      Armored Princess I dropped because it was essentially the same game with a couple new mechanics but no improvements over what turned me off from the original.
      The main gripe I have with this game is that it eventually devolves into a min-max experience where you want to explore the overworld but enemy stacks escalate to a point where as you have to be at full power at all times which implies a fuckton of backtracking or awkwardly avoiding enemy encounters which can get pretty tedious. Even more than HOMM, since the lack of turn base movement on the overworld really opens the floodgates to a "just backtrack to the closest town bro" mindsent when designing maps and challenges.

      I had a lot of fun the one savefile I spent a fuckton of hours in, but I probably won't go back. The battle theme is fucking glorious though and the soundtrack overall is good. I wish they improved upon this formula instead of dropping the entire thing altogether and doing something completely different on the sequel.

      loved kings bounty the legend series. I played legends until near the end, then i started rushing it since I 100%ed everything until you get to the final zone. I played warrior and I think mages were far stronger at the end though. Still, the endgame rage box spells were hilariously busted.
      Armored princess was pretty fun too, I think I played mage there? Even though it was nerfed a lot. Still, the dragonling you use for rage is a lot less cool (even though i think he was stronger than the rage box). I kinda disliked the island stuff though. The great open map was a lot more fun to explore.
      Dark princess was pretty fun too corrupting the waifus. Although it felt even less open than armored princess. The nordic expansion also felt a bit soulless.

      I havent played KB2 though.

      It's good. The vanilla is a bit rough, but it gets better and better with every expansion. If you don't care about the story (I mean, who does?) just dive straight into Tribes of the East. It's the best HoMM V has to offer.

      It's solid. Really good mechanically, alternate unit upgrade paths in the expansion, unit abilities, faction specific abilities, decently balanced skills with a subskill system.
      But it has one GIGANTIC issue - AI turns take forever, and there is no real way to fix it. If you want to play with more than 2 or 3 AI, get ready to wait forever. If you want to play XL maps or larger, get ready to wait forever, since their turns only grow longer. Want to alt-tab while waiting? No luck, alt-tabbing stops the loading, because fuck you. I've tried two mods that were supposed to shorten the turns, and maybe they do, but only by a tiny bit, it's still the worst thing about the game. Honestly I don't know how did they do it, every previous HoMM game basically skips ai turns near instantly, and even 6 and 7 are faster.
      Also it's the worst looking HoMM game, so that sucks.

      Go with yes. Fighting them gives you more XP, but at the risk of losing some units, letting them go deletes them from the map, you take no losses, but you get MUCH less XP. Skipping the fight is only good when you REALLY can't be bothered to fight them.

            I tried it a while back and I felt pretty disappointed. The spritework is real nice in combat but looks awful on the overworld map. There's barely any factions and the basebuilding system just feels awkward to me.
            A certain ugandan man made a review that praised it a ton, so I guess there is good stuff in it, but it didn't click well with me.

            Dungeon and tower are my favourites, but honestly I play everyone.
            I play HotA and once in a while WoG.
            One thing that bothers me with HotA is that it's basically objectively an improvement over vanilla for the most part, but then for some fucking reason they decided to change the sprites for pikemen and orcs, and they simply look worse.

            Nice, have fun anon.
            [...]
            I tried it, it's alright. I kind of like some of the decisions they made, like giving you more freedom in what you want to build, allowing you to stack specific units if you want. It works well with the magic system too, since you can focus on units that give you specific mana as well. The magic in general is pretty interesting, but I feel like the spells themselves are shit, boring effects and not particularily powerful. Also having only 4 factions is a bit of an issue. By the way the way they implemented custom made maps and having them available so easily from the main menu is awesome, great implementation.
            But ultimately I just find myself going back to HoMM 3, 4 or 5 anyway. Somehow didn't pull me in too much.

            also to add to this, one thing that pissed me off immensily about SoC is that every single time you start a battle you have randomized available hexes for you units and have to manually set them up
            it seems like such a minor thing, but good God - what a frustrating timewaster. Just let me permanently set my units how I want.

            i played a few good hours in it and had pretty good time, but like the other said the world map is not very good and i found the combat really annoying
            if your army is larger then you get a bonus and steamroll the enemy, and if the enemy is stronger then they get the bonus and its really hard to turn around
            also the magic feels a bit bland and human faction in the campaign cant even use most of the good stuff unless you choose very specific talents to unlock magic
            overall its an alright homm spiritual successor, but still needs more work done with magic and more factions/units

            It was one of the flagship games from the initiative that this one relatively unknown company known as CDProjekt started in 2000's in Poland. They fully translated the game, together with some top-tier dub including AAA actors, and then sold it dirt cheap for like 5 bucks or less, because the idea was - there is no point in pirating the game, when the game is so cheap, every kid can but it for their pocket money. And games that were included were HoMM 3, Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Gothic, The Longest Journey, Original War, Settlers and mamy others - that's why all of those games are massive cult classics in Poland.

              Slavs have been playing with machine-translated pirated HoMM3 long before anyone got around to translating them officially. Machine translation has led to some hilarious mistakes which later went on to become local memes.

        Yeah, the new town in AB was supposed to be the Forge, not Conflux. But because the fans got so buttblasted about the Forge (up to and including sending death threats to the devs), this was scrapped and replaced with very blatantly cobbled together Conflux literally at the last minute.

          I meant more for their rank. Actually stormies with bless might even be better than grand elves. Better base stats, faster, way more hp (15 vs 25) and comparable damage.
          Elf = 3-5 x2, stormies = 2-8. Zealots obviously beat them, but their growth is shit since they are a T5 unit compared to storm ele at T2.

            Personification of "slow and steady wins the race". Some of the toughest units out there, excellent defensive stats, low costs. Throw Expert Air Magic into the mix and you're set against pretty much anyone.
            Also, this castle hasn't been replicated in any of the subsequent games, which is a shame.

              None of your fancy shooty magic shit helps when you have Hydras, Gorgons and Basilisks steamrolling across your army, with Dragonflies and Wyverns knocking out your archers.
              Fortress is simultaneously a polar opposite of Solmyr taking out half of your stacks with magic within 2 rounds AND Crag Hack arriving on day 1 of week 2 to rape your ass, which was a genius design by the dev team.

    Apparently this is 'inspired' by it. Has a demo on itch.io I think. Can see the inspiration, but the demo was not good. Some things (very unresponsive controls being the main one) I would assume are fixed in the actual game, but some of them seemed like they're very intentional design choices the dev likely doesn't see needing to be fixed, like taking 1 week for units to restock despite seemingly only having very little access to buildings that produce units, leading to a lot of waiting around.

      I find this one pretty meh even after playing the full version pirated.

Three artifact combo that makes all your summons stay after the battlle is superbroken Not to mention, at high difficulties AI is given absolutely ridiculous cheats.

      Because that would require Ubisoft to start giving a fuck. Like Squeenix with Tomb Raider, they are just sitting on this IP, not knowing what to do with it. There are plenty of talented devs in Slavlands that would happily took on a new Heroes game, but Ubisoft is going to Ubisoft. They either give the devs too little money because fuck HoMM, or they fuck them over when the game is not selling in AAA capacity.
      The only hope now is Ubisoft either selling the franchise, or some talented devs doing a spiritual successor, like with King's Bounty or even Songs of Conquest.
      From anegdotal evidence, I know for a fact that there are plenty of devs in Poland itself that would gladly make another Heroes game.

          Would you prefer if everything blended into background, had low contrast and no outlines, made sounds every five seconds and violated basic color theory? Because that's what you're going to get with modern game artists. Unless it's a miracle and your name is Age of Empires.
