Hi. I've no idea if we do have any impact on the design process but I think it's worth a try.
Let us write in this topic things that made Heroes 3 and Heroes 4 great in your eyes, things that if were abondend would be in your opinion a step in wrong direction.
Here are my views:
From Heroes 4:
- simultaneous damage distribution. Finaly battle result did not depend on whose stack attacked first.
- Uniquity of creatures. Every creature has unique special abilities, wheres in heroes 3 many creature where strongly alike, difrences were only in texture and slightly in statistics. It becames boring after a while :/
From heroes 3:
- uniquity of heroes. Specialities and diffrent starting skill packages should return.
Well, that's about it. While posting remebre that heroes 5 should not be a remake of heroes 3 or 4 but a new game based on those games. Leave place for changes
