    Derp, I messed up a word there. I meant start conquering them by turn 2, instead of turn 3-4. And yes, if I play my cards right, I can conquer one province per turn. (I'm not playing at a particularly high difficulty, which might explain it). I usually will have them clear by turn 10, at the minimum, unless there's something particularly nasty I didn't want to face.

    Just had a run with the Lizardmen, and boy I can't wait for the rework. They are simply not that strong.

    I was planning on using them only, but then I found a Seraphim relic, and couldn't refuse.

    He totally wrecked my economy, so I had to ditch most of the army

    I just got into this game. It's objectively an unbalanced mess, but with so much heart and a good concept behind it that it shouldn't be a surprise if fans fixed it up right. I'll try out that New Horizons mod.

    Ok, took a look at New Horizons and concluded that this is the kind of hardcore strategy game that will fuck you so hard up the ass you enjoy it. If you want to be manhandled by HOMMXXX on steroids and crystal meth, this is the game for you. Casual fags need not apply.

    Man, these portraits clash with the rest of the artstyle. So do behemoths, Eador is much closer to HoMM 2 than 3. :prosper:

    Still, always good to have an update.

    Probably. It's been there for a while though. It's a shame because most of the new sprites are pretty much indistinguishable in style from the original ones, whoever makes them does a really good job.

    I've heard in New Horizons you can bring heros/units/items from shard to shard? I'm near the beginning of the campaign and so far haven't had that option. Is it an advantage you unlock? I'm really excited for that because most of the selectable advantages seem like trash but this could dramatically alter the opening sequence: if you had a high level swordsman or something along those lines.

    Does anyone know how to do this/when it will become available? I think I've conquered 4 shards so far.

    You can start with a unit (as selectable advantage) but i think it's a fresh one. Still if the unit is solid it might enable you a more aggressive/faster early play. Haven't played very far with the mod tough.

    You get more points in the astral and much better rewards for taking shards (good items and tier 1 units) than in the base game. No transfers between shards as far as I know, don't know if that's even possible in the engine.

    Hey DS, it seems like Jazz is about to release a new version of NH. Do you feel like helping out like you did last time? An English release around Xmas would be a nice present :)

    It is actually very balanced game. Take.it from someone who played it for years.

    The only "unbalanced" part is that at highest difficulties there are only viable two opening strategies. Sword plus healer,or barb plus healers.

    I just won two shards and finally beat that fucker Doh Gor and he just started a war on my shard. I'm really nervous about the whole "you lose the campaign if you lose this shard" clause.

    Well, you know if you would be reduced to one province, you can restart the shard. And I think step backs works too.

    (But I kinda dislike these battles, so when I'm attacked I tend to say fuck that. And use cheat engine to give myself proper gold to speed things up a bit.)

    The guy translating it advised that he only had 8 hours left to go back in November 2017. He stated he planned to have it out around Christmas. However, it has not been posted yet.

    Jesus fucking christ, how am I supposed to be able to take provinces at the same rate as Doh-Gor while I'm defending my shard from him? I can see him with 6 extra provinces by the time I have 3. I can't fucking capture one every turn when 2 of the ones near me have 9 barbarians, 1 has slugs with lizardmen, one has dwarves and ballista, one has the prince's men, and one has 9 undead including ghouls. It is not numerically possible to amass an army with the strength to be taking these fights and winning them every turn to keep up the same rate of expansion as Doh-Gor, much less even winning one of them. This is total bullshit.

    Slugs with lizardmen are T2 provinces. If you can beat up dwarves one ballista is typically non issue. And that undead province, one ghoul or two?

    Valky it's not that hard, if you play game long enough you will understand.
