    Thanks, but based on that one preview video of them I would pass since it was just some artwork pictures etc. If they truly had a nice video preview I would give it a go but it seems they lack providing anything good to look at before install and test.

    I will stick to my Shining Force series ROMS for now hahahaha. They should do a Shining Force MMORPG!!

    I was also unable to find any real gameplay videos, just the artwork. I was hoping the game was a mmo type of game but then i noticed it was turned based strategy game... I also think the website is a little strange too. 91.com?

    This game looks like such a waste of time.

    I completed all parts from 1 - 4 + all addons, and I was shocked to see so little amount of monsters and classes to choose from : / Never the less I still gonna try it.

    I clicked the link, and went to the website and I think my computer got infected with a viruses/spyware.  My protection is going nuts and now every time I open internet explorer (yeah I use IE), it tells me that whatever website I type in my harm my computer and it always leads me to a virus protection page.

    So...I guess I am saying, watch out with this link, I am not sure if this virus/spyware is from the webpage, but it all began just now (I am using a different computer to type this), so be careful.

    I am entitled to my opinions, misspellings, and grammatical errors.

    Do you mean the mmorpg beta giveaway link?  If so that means mmorpg.com would be infected which would suck.  If you mean the homm  website link.   I have seen no problems with it.

    Having downloaded the client, I clicked "install". I expected a window to pop up, but nothing happens. I clicked again, still nothing, clicked again. Suddenly I notice my computer slowing down. I check the task manager and it tells me that HoMM Online is currently extracting lots of files. Where it extracts them to? I'm not sure. The stupid program didn't ask me. Since I clicked it several times, it extracts them several times. And since it extracts them to the wrong place (not the harddisk for games) that partition is running out of disk space, causing the installer to abort, without removing the files it half-extracted to a directory I didn't find yet.

    Yeah, nicely programmed, really. /sarcasm

    Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

    Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

    I didn't have any problems installing the game at all, went quite smooth. I'm certainly not expecting great things out of the game, but being a fan of the series, will be fun to give it a try

  • sakersaker harrisburg, PAMember UncommonPosts: 1,129

    No idea what this game might be like, definitely loved the series so will give it a chance.

  • ET3DET3D Member UncommonPosts: 263

    This is one of these "if I had more time I'd love to test it" kind of thing. I can spend ages on HOMM. And what's with the busty elven babe in the video, that you can gift items to? I find that really out of place in this game (yet stragely appealing).

  • OlliebolOlliebol EindhovenMember UncommonPosts: 11

    Definetly gonna try it, I have played 3 or 4 of the games in the series, loved em. Still play homm 4and5 with my friends every now and than.

    im still a big fan from the homm series and quite curios how the whole persitend world and mmo stuff plays out in that game. will give it a try for sure.

    hope there is quite a bit char developmend to it and not to much asian manga style grafics.

  • OrthelianOrthelian Barrington, RIMember UncommonPosts: 1,008

    It's not Asian manga style, but HoMM5 WoW style.

    It does, in fact, ask you where to install, so I'm not sure what happened with you. It sounds like you just launched the installer so many times that the basic extraction of the temporary installation files (which every installer on Earth does) was multiplied many times.

    Though I honestly can't see how:


    1. You didn't hear your hard drive working when you clicked the first time.

    2. A 1 GB installer can fill up anything.

    doesnt look great at all but as a fan of the series and huge fan of homm 3 (still play it with friends from time to time) i gotta give it a try

    I love me some Heroes of Might  and Magic, I don't know about this one though.... it looks just like HOMM5, but is online multiplayer? Maybe I'm missing something but I really don't  get why they'd try to take the basic formula and shoehorn it into a MMO, just doesn't make much sense.

    My fave part of the games was always the single-player campaign, I mean, yeah taking my fully decked out army into battle against some friends or others might be fun for a bit, but I think it'd get stale. Especially if all the "Massively Multiplayer" aspect of the game turns out to be is just a glorified lobby. 

    I will give it a try, and it'd be nice if it turns out to be a good game. I'm not holding my breath though.

    i must be missing a translator program or something, takes me to non-english pages after each step

  • TyrokiTyroki Wellington, FLMember UncommonPosts: 183

    It only takes me to a weird jibberish page for the sign up step. Meaning, I can't sign up >.> Even does it when I click sign up from the actual site.

    Figure that one out XD

    MMO's played: Ragnarok Online (For years), WoW (for a few weeks only), Guild Wars, Lineage 2, Eve, Allods, Shattered Galaxy, 9 Dragons, City of Heroes, City of Villains, Star Trek Online (Got someone ELSE to pay for it), Champions Online (Someone else paid), Dofus, Dragonica, LOTRO, DDO and more... A LOT more. I've played good AND bad. The bad didn't last long. :P

    Such a huge dispointment, I have been waiting for years for a M&M MMO, I was expecting graphics and gameplay like HoM&M: DM, instead we get this shit.

    Blizzard has zero worries.
