This game reminds me of old school tabletop wargaming, like 'Chainmail' or something similar. Does anyone know if this game is going to have Hero units? Just curious...

I know I cannot answer the question above, but I would like to make a request: Do not add heroes, please. Most games I've played with heroes, failed.

I agree with Lethal, no heroes would work just fine. Although alot of games with heroes do well - i'd prefer this game to not have any "heroes" but something like the general units in the Total War series would be acceptable.

This is, of course, my opinion, so anyone is free to disagree: Heroes are a great addition to a RTS game, they surely add several features and mechanics, and why not even give the game more "epicness". I prefer it since I'm a fan of RPGs.

In order to be fun though, heroes shouldn't unbalance the game. They should be an addition your troops, not basically a "substition" like in some RTS games I've played.

What I mean is: Heroes are a good feature to implement in the game, as long as they are not excessively overpowered!

That reminds me of the funny death-cutscene when one of the generals got shot or killed (mostly by fireballs}.

I can state that even with a VERY high level hero I still can't play rambo with him or he will die. Remember that swordsmen units have like 15-20 swordsmen in them and so it doesn't take many units to swarm a hero. So even if he starts one hit killing them he still has a lot of guys to fight singlehandely.

This is a very good thing to hear. Unfortunately, I don't know much about the game mechanics since I've not been able to try the game yet. How much can you customize your hero?

Hehe you need a blue name for that( dev) I'm just an old time player. I'm hoping for lots of customizing!

I'm hoping for some customization as well, to a degree though. I just don't want OP heroes.

It would be kind of cool if you had a Hero in the game, kind of a sub game in the game

I like heros in rts. This was the mayor think that made me love Warcraft 3.

Nothing wrong with heroes if they are implemented right.

Well maybe some elite units would work with some leadership bonus or something but not real real strong something like the generals in total war games .
