>Why are the campaiigns good?
Some of the are narratively interesting/well executed, include choices, some objectives that change up the gameplay, etc.

For Heroes 6 I seem to recall that the Haven and Inferno campaigns were good, as well as all the DLC ones like the pirate one with Crag Hack, Danse Macabre with Sandro and the Dungeon one.

The music is also quite nice

Whichever hero has ballistics in a given castle. And Sandro looks dope.

Absolutely Stronghold.
>town you like to play
Unironically all of them in Heroes 3, Conflux and Inferno are my least favorite.

Castle, Stronghold, Dungeon.

Damn, i wish for new Heroes game.
Also III Heroes is beatiful, but i like HoMM V aesthetics more, yeah it just generic fantasy, but i always loved modern fantasy look. Heroes I II III IV kinda fairy tale to me.

1 is just badly drawn
2 looks great in its fairy tale style. It might be my favourite of the old ones
3 always felt drab to me, though it does manage to make all units feel like they belong in this world
4 looks plain bad
5 looked great to me back in the day but the style doesn't do much for me these days. It's very competent for the most part though, so I can't complain
6 makes me feel conflicted. I hate the look of Haven and Inferno, love spider necros and nagas.

Let's just say they went a bit too far into high fantasy category. I just can't buy a rank and file spearman wearing full plate or paladins riding horses of solid light. I would probably be more or less fine with both if they were of higher tier, though.

>>278758
They're all fairly easy to learn, but if you're new I'd go with 3 or 5, they're the ones that don't have much hidden information and aren't unfinished. In case of 3, don't buy HD edition, it's shit, go for HD mod.

>>279020
They don't really wear this kind of form while knowingly interacting with mortals. The only narratives that feature them in these forms are Ezekiel and John's Revelations, both cases of humans receiving visions of heaven, not angels coming down. When interacting with humans on Earth they took human forms (no wings or anything, look at Abraham's or Lot's visitors) or were invisible like the death of the firstborn or the one that killed the Assyrian army during the siege of Jerusalem

I've lately had an idea for HoMM8 or HoMM successor. One thing that they don't need to add, but could is day and night cycle and each town screen reflects that. Haven by day is your usual Haven, but by night it turns into this comfy, sleeping town, possibly with thieves and such. The good ol' Sylvan/Preserve/Sorceress town is usually elf's grove by day and almost H3 Swamp by night. Each town also has two themes with the same length and most of the melodies, but depending on the time of the day they would swap and continue from the same place the other version was paused at.

How it would go mechanically would of course depend on playtesting and balancing. It could be just one day = one turn and then night is next turn and unit recruitment would be closer to HoMM4 OR you'd get fresh units every Monday AND Thursday.

You could also have special Units or Hero classes which are straight up better at either day and night (vampires still being glory of Necropolis if not better, but only by night) or they have something that makes them work differently (maybe werewolf units or some kind of Sun Dragon unit that always makes the battle take place and work as if it was during the day)

Again, the only issue with this is that it would need to be taken care of by professional studio that has time and give a damn, so certainly not Ubisoft.

Is this cutscene supposed to have dialog in it? Because mine is blank and there's no voice over too, so idk what the fuck is going on. I guess the animation looks fancy?
>>
>>283535
Which ones got axed?
>>
>>284942
I feel like the other anon is mixing something up, because first time I have even heard about the 3 cut towns.
I know that during the development of H7 the devs gave fans two polls where they could vote which factions will be in the base game. One was forest elves vs dwarves and the other was demons vs dark elves. Forest and dark elves in the end won, but later on the devs added dwarves as well in dlc. It possible that demons could come out in another dlc. The second cut faction could be nagas, which were playable in H6 and supposedly were planed as 9th faction in H5. I have no idea tho what could the third cut town.
>>
>>284942
Only inferno.
I guess sanctuary too from H6 if you want to count it.
That said H6 was missing academy, Sylvan and Fortress.

No. It wasn't elves vs more elves. It was dwarves vs elves and demons vs more elves. And it wasn't the devs or the publisher who chose.
