>If the unit & town design was a problem, they could redesign it.
Sure. But they ended up going for 4 already existing units, making a town with only 3 new units. Slapped on default grass terrain.
I am just saying Forge was extremely poorly designed, and it would have been cool if it was more than just shitty random units from other factions with a +1 robot box tech advantage"

And the main problem was not the design but the sci-fi element. For some HoMM players, they didn't know anything about M&M universe. So they didn't know the Ancients, robots, blaster, etc exist in M&M universe. They were shocked because they think HoMM is a fantasy games with angels and demons. Little did they know that the creatures they thought to be demons were aliens. Also that in Greg Fulton's interview, he said angels were robots."

To expand on this read the pastebin.

8 is considered a massive step down from 6 and 7 as the dungeon design is a step down, the hirelings are massively OP, and the game has several items that don't belong (like Hammerhands for a druid class). The schedule was rushed as the game wasn't even supposed to be MM8, it was an expansion that 3DO demanded that they turn into something to sell at full retail.

Objectively 8 isn't a bad game but the flaws are obvious. Going back to 6 the lack of GM will stick out, but it is a superior game, as is 7."

Western RPG usually are open world games. So you can go almost anywhere you want. But some area have tougher enemies so you must wait till you're ready to face them."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4881306 && dateTime=="07/04/18(Wed)18:44:14")

You can always hit and run. Try not to get surrounded. If you can't beat something alone then you are probably either in the wrong area or doing it wrong. The enemies tend to swarm in this series, so you may need to burn them down before they get to you. Finally do you have enough Endurance? If it's less than 15 that character won't have much hp. Elves particularly can be annoying this way and you need to try and get this stat up.

If you are still on Emerald Island then make sure and get the Day of the Gods pedestal at the top of the hill. If you are on the mainland then focus on killing what you can until you get some experience. For casters, Poison Spray and Sparks are really efficient in melee once you get to expert, plus dagger experts people to use 2 daggers. Older games are designed to be way less linear than you may be used to."

Make sure you buff your mage first, especially with horseshoes. Invest into two elemental magics and learn expert. I suggest water and air as they give you the most mobillity around the world (water walk, town portal, enchant item - for extra money, jump, fly and very importantly - invisibility). Invisibility and good air magic score are crucial when you do the trial to side with mages/necromancers, because these dungeons are a nightmare to get done at lower levels.

Give everyone expert bow, it helps you venture into higher level places and snatch stronger gear (might wanna have a good disarm trap skill as well). Also bows allow you to kill dragons if you have the patience. You can even kill the dragon on emerald isles and get a nice piece of gear to start with."

Expert bow is bad and you will always be able to use those skill points better elsewhere, usually master sword or magic skills, although sometimes miscellaneous skills like merchant, identify item, or repair. For killing the Emerald Island dragon, since you have the Day of the Gods pedestal it isn't hard to strafe kill, although casting fire aura can speed up the process.

Disarm trap is a waste of time because the traps themselves can be healed through. As a rule always have the regeneration spell on all characters. The only time Disarm Trap becomes useful is in the Haunted Mansion and that is simply because they put more than a dozen chests really close to each other. Even then with enough blue potions you can still heal through them. Eventually you will usually find a disarm skill ring anyway."

Great atmosphere for once
Great puzzle-ish gameplay that tests your wit and doesn't limit you that much. Find the path, find the secret spot, do the right pickpocket or use the right spell. It's one of the few RPGs that reward creativity, and in relation to it your abillity to document your playthrough, and pay attention to detail. Sure it's not 100% heaven, and you'll genuinely get lost at times but the main feeling this game creates is unique.
Combat is simple as hell, spellcasting is complicated as hell, but this isn't the selling point of the game. It's the mature gameplay and the expectation that you have to survive without game crutches that makes it great."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4886804 && dateTime=="07/07/18(Sat)06:19:17")

The idea of the game is that you have RTS sequences, and RPG sequences. During RPG sequences, you buy building and units blueprints, items, and so on.
During RTS sequences, well, you build peasants, gatther ressources, build stuff, and train units.

Except that the way it's dealt makes it extremely restrictive, since you can only summon party members or peasants when you own a monument, who are placed by the developper. So the game is actually pretty linear.

So the game has 2 phases? Nobunaga's Ambition 14 has 2 phases too. The council phase where you can build cities, hires generals, do diplomacy, etc. And active phase where you move the the troops and do battles."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4886815 && dateTime=="07/07/18(Sat)06:27:55")

Rather than phases, it's alternative gameplay. You arrive on a new map, get an unskippable cutscene where your character says "PHEW I BETTER FIND WHAT'S HIS FACE AND GIVE HIM THAT STUFF", and then you walk around for a bit until you find a monument. If it's a hero monument, you know it's a RPG map. If it's a peasant monument, start building and gathering.
I tried Nobunaga's Ambition on Steam, didn't understood much to the tutorial, except that you can grow towns and then add new districts.
Also battles are in real time.

Which Nobunaga game were you playing? The Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence (NA:SOI) or Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence - Ascension (NA: SOI Ascension)? I played the SOI, haven't played the Ascension. In SOI, you play a lord and give commands each turn. Each turn has 2 phases, council then active. In Ascension you play as any character, a lord or officer. If you play as a lord, it's similar to SOI, but if you play as officer, you take orders from your lord (like Romance of the Three Kingdoms 10 and 13, same developer)."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4886824 && dateTime=="07/07/18(Sat)06:36:54")

If you play SOI and having troubles, I recommend playing the first scenario (where Nobunaga had just been born). Play as Nobuhide (Nobunaga's father) and do the quests. You only have 1 castle and 3 fortresses. You also only have like 10 generals. Learn how to play real (tutorials are not real play). If you play later scenarios where you control huge domains and hundreds of officers, it could confuse you."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4886836 && dateTime=="07/07/18(Sat)06:46:55")

That is the SOI one. Ascension is like another game using modified game engine of SOI.

There are 2 kinds of quest. One is story quest. It depends on which ruler you choose. Only a handful rulers had story quests. Like Oda, Takeda, Uesugi, Mouri, Shimazu, Date, etc. The quests are based on historical events (this game is based from real history). The other quest type is generic quest. Most of the lords can obtain the quests (there are few exceptions), and they do not relate to any story. It's more like achivement quest. Like becoming a Shogun.

Of course if you don't like doing quest, there's an option to turn it off. Completing a quest gives you bonus."

Shogun uses different names from the real history. Toranaga is Tokugawa Ieyasu. Ishido (Toranaga's enemy) is Ishida Mitsunari. The Shogun story happened after Toyotomi Hideyoshi died. The land was divided into 2 faction, one who support Hideyoshi's young child, lead by Mitsunari (the West faction). And one who oppose them, lead by Ieyasu (the East faction). Then the 2 factions clashed at the Battle of Sekigahara where the East emerged victorious and started the Tokugawa shogunate."

The anime called The Ambition of Oda Nobuna (Oda Nobuna no Yabou) is a parody of Nobunaga's Ambition (Nobunaga no Yabou). In that anime, some of the characters (most of them) are gender bender of the historical figures. Nobuna is female Nobunaga. MC was thrown into another world (isekai) which looks like Sengoku period in Japan. MC likes to play Taiko Risshiden which is a spin-off from Nobunaga's game.In that game you play as Hideyoshi and do quests from Nobunaga's. There're battles too. Game is like Strategy+RPG (SRPG).

Taiko Risshiden (5 so far)
Samurai Warriors (spin-off Dynasty Warriors, latest is Spirits of Sanada last year)

Sometimes I get to fight against good people who play the Cove faction. On small maps you get really kicked out by these fuckers. But I dont really play that faction that often. These Cove players really tear my shit up. On week 3 full out battle already and against stronghold you lose then.

I came to the conclusion that stronghold isn't really good in 1vs1 on Hota on L or M maps. The units just don't hit enough because of the hero skill build-up. Maybe it will do better with different tactic that I'm used to.

Your stats are basically pointless after 21 as scaling is terrible. Get everyone up to that and let bless/heroism carry you if you want to use melee. An item of +5 spell points will often be the equivalent of +70 int or personality. The only thing to watch out for are some of the master trainers that may take 30 in a specific stat.

If you mean at character creation then you do want endurance and int/per at 18 or 21. Luck is your stat to take from as there is a fountain in the first town that will give you +2 permanent up to 15 and it has 8 charges and the well refreshes almost every day."

Yes you probably want a new set of characters. This is mentioned in the pastebin with suggested party comps. As a rule you want to try to get around 16-18 in Accuracy, Endurance, and Int/Per (whichever is relevant if any), and at least decent Speed and Might. You can ignore luck for everyone but your Robber/Ninja. For MM3 the very start of the game can be brutal. You will wipe, a lot, until you know what you are doing. As a starter hint, I would suggest walking outside and burning the goblin hut (forward a couple spaces, turn left, and walk forward a couple spaces) and then train. Once you get to level 3 you should be able to walk around a lot easier and can continue exploring outside, although the sewers may still be a problem until you get more levels, spells, and better equipment."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4895897 && dateTime=="07/10/18(Tue)20:18:48")

Well, I've never played HoMM 1, as I started with 2, but there are a number of things that take getting used to in the strategy game. The biggest is how you concentrate and use your forces. When I started playing, I made the intuitive mistake of making sure my multiple heroes have more or less equal stacks. DOn't do that. Pour almost everything you have into one main hero and give him control of 95% if not more of your army. Smash things with overwhelming force, get XP, and build that way, instead of horizontally. The armies themselves are your main bottleneck resource; and it's better to lose a town than it is to lose your main force."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4895936 && dateTime=="07/10/18(Tue)20:35:01")

Would you say that having more heroes is better than having just one, even if it's a bit expensive? I think my problem (not just in Heroes 1 but in HoMM 3 too) is that I'm reluctant to pay the extra money to buy more heroes in fear of losing them too soon. When I do buy an extra hero, I just keep one at the town that I own as a "back-up" or to defend my town. Some times I try to use both away from the town to cover more ground, and as you said they have roughly the same about of stacks. Usually though, I don't buy heroes, as I opt to spend the money on buildings. Being a miser is hell."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4895996 && dateTime=="07/10/18(Tue)21:03:34")

>Would you say that having more heroes is better than having just one, even if it's a bit expensive?
It is, but to a point of diminishing returns. Don't get heroes just to have more heroes, only get more if they have a job to do. I'm much more familiar with Homm 3, and in that, most heroes come with more than 2,500 gold worth of soldiers, so often I like to hire heroes (especailly early in the game) to merge the stacks and go on an initial attacking spree against the neutral stacks.

But even those secondaries have useful points. Movement, especially with your main attack stack, is always going to be less than what you need. So the heroes who only have 1 level 1 creature are often my scouts, the guys who pick up resources after the main hero has killed the monsters guarding them, and the guys running back to town to pick up and deliver reinforcements.

But if I've got a guy who only has a single creature, and he gets whacked by the AI? It's not a big deal. I'm more concerned about losing troops and manpower.

And another thing, don't stay back and guard the town. Expand expand expand. More expansion equals more resources claimed equals more troops and buildings, which drives another round of expansion, until you hold the entire map and win. Sitting back in your town means someone else does the expanding and eventually comes knocking with an army you can't beat."

>nature is by far the weakest school of magic desu.
Yeah, but I wanted it for "RP" reasons, since Gauldoth starts with it already. Also the demonologist class would come in handy, because I kept using demon summoning spells fairly often for tactical reasons.
Also I meant this more as a general complaint towards how the class and skill system works. 80% of the classes suck donkey dicks and in many cases, at least for me, the only way I could get into a different class would be by spending points into useless subskills (like navigation on maps with little to no water content, summoning in general, but especially on stealth hero, etc.) before the game decided to throw something useful in that skill at me.

>maxing death magic is also pretty stupid, i suggest you max combat first
It's not stupid when you get GM necromancy. Too bad these campaigns always set you up against undead enemies for half the maps in it, so you can't even feel like god all the time.
Combat also isn't all that useful if you can actually get a decent army."

There were plans to add 3 new cities by the Hota team (Cathedral, Kronverk and Forge) and there are some models floating around the internets, but in the end none were completed. Right now, Hota focuses on multiplayer, balancing issues, adding some funky neutral units and reducing the RNG factors in the game (like the recent Resistance Skill revamp).

Do you have VCMI? There's a mod for it by a Polish team (Mod Design Team) that adds Forge with shield stormtroopers, flying leeches and crab-mutants instead of cyber-zombies, nagatanks and dragon-constructs (link here: ).
If you want more traditional line-up but with less polish, try 'Classic Forge' (link here: ).

>Well, now I'm really interested! Could you give me more detail on how does your campaign work?
What I did was basically create a very basic universe for use for my private campaign settings. In particular, I was really interested by the way your Tower Concept works - it gave me vibes of seclusion (the Tower town is secluded by great masses of trees and mountains and gated behind a Garrison), wonder (magical creatures who dwell in their own area free of snow), and it also internally made sense (there's a shipyard nearby and places where the mages can gather their wood and other resources).
I looked at it for a while and decided to steal this design for my own version of Gnomes, who in this universe dwell in the snow (are almost all pale and white-haired), are expert mages (particularly illusionists) and are very secluded from other races due to, well, being small and frail compared to potential predators, so they learned to circumvent it with magic.
So, in my D&D campaign, if the players ever stumble upon this magical snow land, it'll be described as directly having been inspired by your Tower concept art.
I just really wanted a cool, varied locale, and your attention to detail gave me some fun ideas to use. It was really inspiring, even if it was not a 1:1 calque."

Glad to hear you like Tower concept the most. What's interesting is that was the first 'full screen' concept I've made and I'd say still my favorite of the lot.

Funnily enough, I got inspired by something I had made in Age of Wonder III (pic related) and I wanted to emulate it after the HotA 1.5.0 version introduced the Highlands terrain.

>and it also internally made sense (there's a shipyard nearby and places where the mages can gather their wood and other resources)
That's what I paid the most attention to so I'm really happy you appreciate the effort!

I like them - they're distinct (different appearance and habitat) while still adhering to the tropes of D&D's Gnomes (small, curious and good illusionists).

>it'll be described as directly having been inspired by your Tower concept art
Well now you're making me blush anon!

Why are translations retarded?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4912624 && dateTime=="07/18/18(Wed)06:39:41")

My guess is that the localization team attempted to substitute the term "Wieża" (which is the direct translation of Tower) because, in the guy's mind, the "Tower" town isn't actually a tower, and you still build it up like a castle. They wanted to stick to the theme of nearly all HoMM3 towns being various, almost synonymous terms for large, defensive structures.
It makes *some* sense because, even due to the collocation "wieża magów" (mage tower), it doesn't really take away that much from the gameplay to call it something else.
However, it's still weird that they decided to use a term with a completely different root for Fortress and Tower. If they really wanted to make it a point that Tower was also a sort of castle, then they should have just called it Cytadela instead of changing up Fortress.
So I can *kinda* see where they were going with this but nonetheless it's pretty weird."

>Does Tower outscale Castle in the lategame if just left uncontested?
Yes. Better stats across the board, Library gives you a higher chance to get a game-winning spell, Archangel resurrect doesn't scale as well with huge armies, Nagas are the absolute best unit of their tier.
But Tower has a much harder time getting to that late game (trying to claim Dragon Utopias for yourself is a mess) and Castle is much easier to snowball with and win."

I heard they want to avoid random stuff. The old resistance gives a chance to resist a spell. The new resistance gives penalty to opponent's spell power."

Well, the penalty to opponent's spell power also nerfs a broader variety of spells, as it nerfs the amount of turns a buff or debuff will last on units, for instance."

How do I stop being bad at HoMM3?
I'm new and just play the standard 3 or 4 player free for all as necropolis, and despite my best efforts to build fast I just constantly get overwhelmed.

Is there something I'm doing wrong?"

>Is there something I'm doing wrong?
Probably. What are you doing? How quickly are you losing these games? What are you building and recruiting? How are you dividing up your armies between your heroes? How many heroes are you getting?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==4914030 && dateTime=="07/18/18(Wed)22:38:31")

I typically do fine mid and early game, but late game it just seems like the AI have infinite resources and can shit out a ton of units super fast that I didn't even know what possible

In the 4 way free for all, I'm typically second, even when I have the game set to 80% I think it is so it should be easier to win these matches but I just can't compete with the fucking tsunami of units they have."

If you're doing a 4 man map (presumably medium sized) and you're waiting around to the near end of month two, you're dawdling. Build faster, creep faster, strike faster. Make sure you're building dwellings, but above all, make sure you're building troops early and often. Especially if you're playing on Easy, don't prioritize those gold generating buildings, get your dwellings out first, and get at least the 1-6 ones before starting to get upgrades. Your creatures accumulate even if you don't build them. Don't have your main hero do much beyond kill neutral stacks and strike at enemy cities. Have a contingent of lower level guys with 1 fast creature picking up the loot and ferrying reinforcements. Concentrate your XP and your forces; you should have one clear primary guy who has the bulk of your army and pretty much all of your battle artifacts.

And of course, don't let someone get to the grail before you do."

And just to elaborate, (I'm the guy who wrote>>4913749 upthread). I'm currently lackadaisically playing Myth and Legend. That's an XL map with an underground. I'm playing on 160 because I'm feeling a bit lazy, and it's currently month 2 week 2. I have completely eliminated 4 of my 7 opponents, and crippled two more. You can and should be moving fast. Most games are effectively over by the end of the first 3 weeks. If you don't have a clearly winning position by then, you're probably losing."

Thanks for the run down, does the resource thing at the start not determine difficulty? It determines the game's resources?"

Protips how into Homm3

first days build creature dwellings and hire as many creatures as possible
then conquer all small creatures nearby and their mines. Conquest is much more profitable in first week than building town halls

divide archer units into two units

do not move slantwise, this takes more move points than moving straight

in later weeks(when you conquer mines nearby your castle) do not take slow units(like dwarves, ents) with you they are only for castle defense"

You put units to guard a mine when you end your turn near one, so that you're left with only your fastest ones when you end your turn, which gives you more movement points on your next turn."
