I've been following this website pretty much since launch and I'll be completely honest, I didn't expect a lot of updates or a lot of attention. I've been so far put to shame and blown away.
Keep doing awesome work, and please take care of HoMM7 for us. I'm now convinced it's in capable hands.
Provided they add Fortress !
I recall living with 6 other guys one summer back in college. There was little to do but classes and partying. One of my roommates had MM1 and MM2 on his system. I skipped many a class working through those. When Heroes 1 came out I didn't make the immediate connection (from the box - hazy days) that MM and Heroes were connected.
Been hooked on both (for better and for worse) ever since.
I (and now my wife and kids) very much look forward to Heroes 7.
I hope that the 20 years anniversary will be awesome. :)
В героев играю с самой первой части. Эх... как же давно это было... Самые любимые части - 2,3 и 6.
I have played heroes 2,3,4 and 6 and I loved them all. I really enjoy how the games incorporate both strategic and tactical gameplay, and allows you to specialize your armies.
Necropolis faction and town in Heroes V was so much Gothic an authentic! Its shapes were like death church was amazingly perfect! Please throw away that dead idea about pyramids architecture and egypt etc. It has not a half of charm from Heroes V necropolis with its tall and sharp towers! And yeah, made all cities in 3D! =)
been with HoMM since H2, though I owned it only a LONG time later. Best experiences were:
-Hotseat in H3. That was simply awesome. When young, we used to spend hours,even on some birthdays, on hotseating heroes 3. (With all expansions, though we hardly ever played with conflux)Actually no later part of the saga so far has offered a better Hotseat experience to me.
-Campaign...H3 was awesome. Loved the non-linear storytelling! Edpecially loved the SoDh Campaign!!!
Heroes 2: The Succession Wars, demo map: Broken Alliance in a PC magazine CD, 1996. The colors won me, the resource management system made me stuck. I was 14 then, now I am a math teacher, still managing my castles, searching for fan-made maps..
Heroes 3 was my first video game, I can remember watching as my dad played them)) It was 1999 and I was only 4 then.. Now I've almost done with video gaming but it seems like I will never get bothered by Heroes. Guys, I know you won't spoil VII. Please, try your best))
Ahhh, sweet memories coming back ;)
I started countless years ago with MM I on a 386er PC, after that, i was hooked with the roleplay series, best part of the series in my eyes 3-5.
Heroes 3 was the first strategic part óf the MM world and i've had not so much sleep in this time :D
Моей первой игрой была Меч и Магия 8. Играла в 3, 5, 6 части героев. Пятые очень понравились. Люблю мир Асхана.
Окунулась в историю Героев, спасибо, интересно =)
I've played all the Heroes games from Heroes 2 onwards. My dad was the one who introduced my sister and I to it when we were very young, and we haven't stopped playing Heroes games since then, both together in hotseat mode and by ourselves in campaign mode. You know, my dad still has the original Heroes 2 disk. I've always been kind of (irrationally) proud of that since it shows how long my family has been playing the series (since before I was born!).
The timeline did not include Heroes Chronicles.
It's nice to read all these anecdotes :)
I was first introduced to the franchise with Heroes IV by my much younger cousin (thank you, Thomas). We're both excited by all this and share new votes with each other in case the other missed it.
I started off with countless hours of Heroes III, mainly playing with friends throught hotseat.
