The "OR" part should be a simple "or" for a simple name, like "fight or die"; "Die OR Fight", "Death OR Freedom", "Dirt OR Fire". If it has to be an acronym it should be dwarfy stuff like "Dirt, Oil, Riches, Fire" or "Dirt, ORe, and Fire"

Personally, I'd just have each faction have or embody 1 of the letters at this point, either by being the first letter of their faction name or being what they stand for. Like dominion, order, raiders, freedom.

Who do I contact for a refund on this game?
I bought it on launch and enjoyed it enough at the time, but about half a year ago now an update broke it and made it so that the game crashes reliably every time I play. I haven't been able to do anything with it for like 7 months and I've sent a half dozen support tickets reporting the issue but the crash still hasn't been fixed.

I don't know why I'm letting this game sit in my steam inventory unplayed month after month because the devs broke it.

Yea murloc sages are strong boss mobs. You will also find plenty of mobs that will just wipe out your team in one hit. This is partly why flying sword and mages anti army specs are so strong they one shot AOE are ranged and can tackle most of everything. They also have plenty of manuals to main spec 3 then pad the rest of the 12 with op passives like duckweed and others. Keep in mind 12 manuals which once learned you keep all passive bonuses when they are switched out. Speaking on manuals further if you decide to run something not optimal or fleshed out see what stats you need for that weapon group. Add the right legendary mount to boost with 3 or 4 passives plus stats and any manuals regardless of what it says for passives that pump your DPS etc.

New patch dropped today 1.6.8 from 1.6.7. They sorta fixed full inventory eating items like gear and bloodline materials. It pops an error message. That was done in 1.6.7.

I almost want to start a new game for this alone but it looks like there's a big DLC (for free) and I would think a patch would come with it on the 28th so I'll hold off until then. I only just jumped to a second island so restarting shouldnt be a huge issue.
The DLC stuff looks pretty fucking sweet tho and looks like they are slowly working on workshop support

You basically just need to start getting criminals into prison and keeping them there until their criminality is 0%. You prevent escapes by ensuring prisons have enough supplies and enough wardens for the amount of prisoners there. Low productivity means you need more wardens than prisoners.

Then you need to make sure that your courts and police stations are not overloaded, and consider building extra monuments to keep loyalty from getting too low and causing more crime.

Why do players join trams together? Seems like it would be better to have stations visited more frequently than to have a mini train on the roads.

Looks like the last thread finally died. New expansion got revealed. Looks like goat and wolf people, primal culture and a tier 2 and tier 4 tome. Primal Culture looks neat. You get 1 base nature point and then pick a spirit animal that gives you a different point based on the animal. Also changes the visuals of your units. For example the shield has a skin of whatever your spirit animal is. In the pick he has the crocodile selected so it's a crocodile skin shield.

Also they sent out a survey recently asking what people liked, what they didn't, what more they'd want put into the game. So they might be making content for it beyond the 4 announced expansions.

That's really odd to me since I love to play the campaign maps, though admittedly they are one and done and then you move on to random maps. Is that how they weighted it, % of people playing? Because if so that's really foolish, I of course am going to play way more random maps over my course of time in the game, but that doesn't mean the campaign isn't something I highly value.

This chart on the wiki seems to support your theory. Everything past small gets less unhappiness, more expensive tech base costs, and reduced tech/policy costs for settling cities. It seems like they realized that their game balance starts to fall apart on higher map sizes by how much it punishes wide play, so they arbitrarily changed the numbers to accommodate the fact that players will be settling more cities and that more civs in the game means faster tech.

I generally dislike how many city states there are in all map sizes compared to players, but less city states means less free workers so I just leave it on the default.
>>
>>1684934
I get desert starts with desert civs more reliably on small than on standard. I find small plays more smoothly than standard. I think the map scaling is kinda flawed. Firaxis didn't take into consideration too much that civs and city-states expand.

Also, you'd think having a smaller map would hurt liberty/honor play, but not really. Need to first throw away the idea that liberty is only made for wide settling and think of it as designed for wide expanding, whether via settling or conquering, and smaller maps totally benefit conquering. Really easy to do an immortal/deity liberty compbow rush on small.

liberty is a must have for early game conquering, the only important bonus that doesn't apply conquered cities is the -5% unhappiness which is honestly a very minor benefit and that benefit doesn't even matter until you have at least 20 unhappiness in non-occupied cities. but the worker speed and production are so good for domination, better than most policies on honor actually. i do agree that the map does feel cramped at times but given that the game itself is heavily biased in favor of tall gameplay i don't think its too big of an issue, it also makes expands more contested and leads to war rather than everyone just being isolated and non-confrontational

>>1685952
how are you in the information era with barely any of the map explored? you miss out on so much gold from city states, happiness from natural wonders, and a minor tech cost reduction for each known civ that has that tech. all it takes is one early scout and you can just slowly uncover the map for the rest of the game to get the benefits

That's where you are wrong, you NEED roaming parties because they provide free gold and experience, if you don't take them you're making future fights literally strictly harder for yourself so you should strive to take every roaming party and camps that you can.

I haven't played this since launch.

Is defence skill really worse than attack?
At 20 points of defence difference your troop takes half the damage while at 20 points of offence difference your troop deals twice the damage. A hero with good defence values might be able to take a few of the AI stacks with no casualties that an offense hero would lose stacks to. If you could choose 1 point of offence and 1 point of defence early on the defence might make more difference as you retain more troops. Later in the game offence certainly is useful because defence doesn't help kill the enemy main.
>>1684555
Play the campaigns starting with restoration of erathia.
>How do I get better at judging whether I can beat an enemy or not BEFORE engaging them in combat?
Check the size of a stack/creature bank before fighting it, decide whether the objective is minimal casualties, no casualties or you don't care about casualties (The reward could be considerably more valuable than what you lose like angels) and try to get reinforcements to your main before fighting large stacks.
Most level 1 spells are not great, haste and slow are preferred for their expert effects, you want level 2 mage guild only for lightning bolt which scales well with the power stat. Resurrection is also extremely powerful on a magic hero with advanced earth magic and can help clear utopias. Necropolis gets animate dead instead at level 3 and it works fine even at basic level.
There are other spells with niche cases like berserk and clone.
You want to be clearing creature banks if you can do it without too much sacrifice, the gold is good but also some offer artifacts.
Shooters are useful to have in your army for clearing.
Also make note of wells, you can use all your spell points if you are going to reach a well soon
>>
>>1685003
>Is defence skill really worse than attack?
Unless you're one of the armorer specialists yes. To put it simply your average game of heroes 3 revolves around a single power stack and that power stack heavily relies on one shotting the enemy stack and attack skill helps with that. The armies are just small enough that this usually works and if it's not a straight up one shot, the damage dealt is so high that whatever counter is coming at you is negligible.
That said if you're playing a challenge map where enemy troops are counted in thousands and the map gives them free stats some way then armorer specialty + defense skill is the way to go. There are way more spells that can increase your offense potential compared to defense ones. Like what you're going to do cast shield or air shield and stoneskin/prayer and that's about as far as defense goes. Offense there's bless and most importantly disrupting ray or frenzy. Best case scenario these spells can increase your damage output by more than 10x, there is no 10xing your defense.
There is argument for both attack skill and defense skill but unless you're playing some sort of crazy challenge map with armorer specialty the attack skill is the way to go like 90%+ of the time. And the devs knew that attack skill is OP this is why it takes more than twice as many points to reach the cap, you need 60 ADD(attack defense difference) to cap attack but only 28 ADD to cap defense.
