Got a beta key yesterday, might have a look later. I literally have no idea what they changed this time, oh well. I spent a lot of time with HOMM3, 4 was terrible, 5 was better but I didn't play it much. We'll see.

Looking forward to this. Please tell me they have made the ai turn much much much quicker. That is what killed 5 for me

I can't bring myself to feel excited about this, I enjoyed the first two HOMM, then got pretty much bored by the third which was essentially no different, and didn't bother with 4 or 5... is there really going to be anything better about this one than booting up good old HOMM 2?

What the fuck are you on? HOMM3 was really good and polished and I'd say significantly better than II, IV was shit, but V was again really good. Sure, the graphics could have been a more pretty (where HOMM3 excelled) but I can't remember a single thing that bothered me in HOMMV. It was just a really really good and enjoyable game. HOMM series and King's Bounty are among the rare games that can hold my attention for weeks without interruption.

My exact experience. Although now i'm going to have to install HOMM 2 again! :D

the beta version I played wouldn't stop crashing and corrupting my saves ugh!

the game overall is an improvement imo over H5 with hero development no longer having randomly available skills and random spells from mages guilds but instead being picked from a more typical rpg like level up interface and I liked the general feel of the game.

the balance was all out of whack though with, for example, sanctuary's champion tier water dragon creature having an ability that any friendly creature moving through a trail it left would immediately get to move again and you could theoretically make a near unlimited number of attacks per turn with any stack by continuously moving through this trail.

EDIT:

Looks really... simple and unpolished, even for beta.

Well as long as it isn't a bloaty piece of shit like 5 was (seriously at the time I bought it I'd just built myself the UBERMACHINE PC and it STILL took a ridiculous amount of time for turns to be processed) its all good.

Been playing HOMM3 a lil bit theses last couple of evenings... Good times :D

Think i'd gotten my timeline mixed up earlier. HOMM3 seems pretty much the same as 2? unless my memory is failing me :S

Oooh well... regardless hope 6 turns out well!

With the long awaited jesus-patch 1.5 out now that was promised to fix balancing and reintroduce town screens- anyone here who still plays this? Is the game worth it now with the new patch?
I really want to love it, I really do....

Not sure..ubisoft seems to be pretty good at hiding their patchnotes.
I am just asking because the feedback (http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=37803 )is just a little too postive for me to believable. And since FHC is reliable in hating everything, I just thought I'd ask around here for a second opinion before I reinstall the game...
