Well, since you still didn't decide on heroes in skirmish mode. I'm hoping they can be taking out. Trust me nobody wants heroes in a army of thousands.

Actually, I beg to differ. I find heroes useful in most RTS games. They can lead armies and often have special and useful abilities. I'm not really sure why you wouldn't want heroes, actually. If you don't like 'em, don't use 'em.

Heroes will not be "that" powerful. Don`t forget that you`ll see armies from 100 units early game to 2000 unit strong late game assaulting the castle. Hero if used properly should be able to take out 25 (lvl 1), 75 (mid level), 200 (maxed out). And don`t discount the fact that your regular units also gain experience and improve over time.

I know we can probably mod our own heroes, but are there any default heroes that are strong against structures?

Don't get me wrong. I love heroes in warcraft3. But think about it, let's say blizzard adds heroes in starcraft2, that will make the game worse off. Since, starcraft2 is about massive armies. My point was in small battles they are ok. But in an army of thousands, they are just a headache. I love the way this game is heading(an army of thousands), but heroes will just set this game back. Now, in single and mmorts, that's no problem. But in skirimsh mode, that's a different story.

Although I could be wrong, I believe DoF's structures can only be attacked by siege weapons or (if they're made of wood) by fire. Unless the hero is on fire or some sort of massive troll, I don't think they'd even be able to attack buildings.

I actually like that idea. It requires you to actually make siege weapons and not just spamming giant mobs of orcs and such.

It's not a question of them being useful or not. And you can't "not use them" in multiplayer if your opponent is without leaving yourself in a great disadvantage.

I'd rather have no heroes at all than have them be titans that can crush a hundred units by themselves. It just doesn't fit this kind of game imo. Although making them spell-casters could work.

Definitely in favor of an army-centric game rather than a hero-centric one.
Totally agree with this point-heroes should be like Kings and Generals who lead armies into battles as skilled fighters that can stand their ground in combat and provide leadership to those around. Having heroes that can take out hundreads in one spell is annoying, makes getting units pointless except as a distraction.

I'm not very sure about heroes in mmorts mode. Hmn if they will be available then perhaps give everyone chance to create their own avatar in game too.
