    @sigil: You’re not making a lot of sense here. Heroes 6 does a lot of things right and a lot of things wrong, the end result being a pretty disappointing game imo. Either way, there’s no logic in trying to copy it. AoW3 will need its own unique selling points and the first gameplay video is very promising in this regard. The animations look fine to me, especially for a pre-alpha video.

    Heroes 6 mostly messed up in the AI department and the number of bugs (some of which are still around long after release). The computer controlled heroes mess up in the most basic tactics, they forget about a lot of spells and abilities, their movement and army logistics are poor and so on. That killed a lot of the fun for me in H6. Hopefully, AoW3 will nail the AI because it’s one of the main contributing factors to rewarding singleplayer gameplay. I’m also hoping for a story that makes some sense, as H6’s story was boring and told in the weirdest possible order that made me lose all interest.

    Heroes 6 chose a very colourful visual style which I think looks good mostly, and some of the gameplay mechanics are strong, but I’m hoping AoW3 chooses its own path. Both in terms of graphics as well as gameplay. Can’t wait to see more gameplay footage.
