Dear tankers.

I wonder if there are any more players of the legendary game series, made by 3DO?

If you don't know, Heroes of Might and Magic is a turn based strategy game series made by 3DO. You move your heroes w/ army on a map, fight monsters, siege castles, find artifacts and defeat other players.  (The BS began when Ubisoft bought the rights..)

Let this be a topic for the awesome series. You can challenge others, discuss the games.. Basicly anything goes that has something to do with HoMM-series (PRE-UBISOFT) :)



I would be a very happy man if someone played HoMM IV with me :)

I got Heroes of Might and Magic III in early 2000 when I was just a kid and I still play it to this day. The only game I have never removed from my PC. HoMM is an amazing series, but for me HoMM I and III are iconic :)

The first 3 HoMM was great, something terrible started to begin with HoMM IV but the V. game totally devastated everything what the Ubisoft slowly built up. Despite everything, I liked all series what I've already played, but favourite is/was the HoMM II then the HoMM III.

One of the best game series ever.
All you need is a case of beer (8l) per player and a "hot seat".
And when the beer is gone you go get some more. :Smile_great:
I have spend hundreds or thousands of hours playing 1-3,5.
3,5 is an unofficial paths called WoG or In the wage of gods. I highly recommended if you never try it before.


First 1 was HoMM-II then I, III, IV, 3,5 and few tryouts in V.
Never liked IV that much and V was horrible.

I have tried the WoG, and it made the game unstable (crashed more than the basic III on Windows 7). Why you didn't like the best HoMM? (IV) :)

WoG is a 'script hell' and some versions are more unstable than others.  
Only tried on XP.

Maybe I am more of an old school. IV was not (is not) a bad at all. I just did not like it so much.
I am slow learner and every time it was too late to remember that thunder birds are not the same as they were in III.  :Smile_veryhappy:

I like HoM&M2 and HoM&M3.
Still play sometimes HoM&M2 because I liked Phoenix Rush strategy (to build Phoenixes on the first week) on Impossible.

och my old good times i spend playing the game. i still have it and play it.
Best fantasy game.
My favorite race is Elementals castle - air and water distance shooters, phisic elemental is cool too. :Smile_smile:
I hate hell castle- only one distance shooter - gogs. :Smile_sceptic:
In my opinion game is great up to heros 4. heros 5 and up is not good.

I like Elemental castle only because of Phoenixes... Because they were the fastest units. Battles usually started with Armageddon spell.

On the HoMM 3, I personally never played with the Conflux, mainly because I like brawling! :Smile-izmena:
That is the main reason I love Stronghold and Fortress.
On the larger maps, I prefer the Inferno. It has decent, but high speed fliers, which are great during a siege. No one messes around with 200 efreeti sultans :)

On the HoMM 4, I LOVE Might, even tough their first tier troops are awfull :( Damn those berzerks...

I loved the way of heroes development in HoMM 4 that Chaos Mage/ archer combo <3.

I had some issues with WoG stability but things it introduced into the game were more than worth it imo, with new creatures, experience system, remade skill etc. Whole new game :D
