Does the expansion change enough to be worth the $20?
Just wondering. I am considering buying it, but still on the fence.

I think Stardock should offer the users already owning FE a special discount. Its just fair, cause they do not offer a simple addon for some changes..

$20 is the special discount...but it still seems too much. The game itself seems more like a small DLC add-on for those with FE already. Now for those who don't have FE, the normal price tag seems fine as LH is a standalone.

It's like the difference between buying a GOTY edition or buying the original with each add-on. It's more expensive that way.

yeah 15€ is still too much. i feel even more cheated as i also bought some DLC for the FE for another 5€.. noone wont give me that back.

IF you bought the DLC for FE, would it transfer over to FELH?

I'm voting no.

To me, all it really looks like is access to a bigger map, some game tweaks and some new additional beasts.

Is that worth $20? Not to me. If it goes on sale for $10, maybe, but not $20.

since i love most games stardock has to offer, my gut says yes and my love of FE says yes. but thats just my opinion.

Nah, if it was a fiver I would probably buy it, this price is just a joke. I am ashamed for stardock charging Infinity Ward DLC prices

i bought the game for 30€ and a DLC for 5€.. Now they want another 15€ for me to get a new game where my previous 35€ are gone. I feel like paying for playing a beta version.. I think i will buy it anyway as FE is an awesome game. Still its not worth to pay as much for release as for Skyrim. If they announce future DLCs for the new FE will be free or reduced to people owning the "old" FE would be cool as well.

if we buy it - does it auto upgrades?

Up to now and what I have played of LH, I would have to say not worth it even at $20.
$5 or $10 maybe. There is very little here that could not have been, and should have been, easily added to FE in a patch.

I'm back playing FE. I don't like how heroes are forced on you and are pretty useless in LH.

OMFG no way, dude LH is soo awesum!!!!!!!

Just kidding, I totally agree.

The graphics are much more stable, and there is slightly better tactical variation, and a few extra baddies, but on the whole it is a step backwards

What do you mean by useless?
SouthLane Apr 22, 2013 @ 4:27am 
I mean that in most cases a unit of spearmen are more powerful. But that could change.

I don't know you know. I have been switching between the two games and the graphics are a hell of a lot nicer in LH. It's like they have given it a whole new graphics engine.

They redid heroes totally.

You now have skill trees and are forced to take a lot of those "Common" useless skills that you would almost never take in FE. They also turned a lot of the generic skills to specialization skills. Only Governors can learn improved group initiative and improved group XP now, and not until at least level 7.

Levelling is much slower and having multiple heroes is a serious drain on XP. I might be wrong, but it appears that heroes are no longer straight division, but each one reduces XP by a factor of 2.

so in FE, you got 100/50/33/25/20 in LH, you get 100/50/25/12.5/6.3

Item drops are more often low-tech, you now need special skills to wear metal armour.

Level scaling has been almost totally removed from magic, and more mana and longer cooldowns are the norm.

You are no longer able to pick heroes or kill them to deny the enemy. They pop up at threshold levels of Fame. You can not say no.

They also removed weight. Now almost all metal armour gives initiative penalties.

I have changed my mind. On extensive play you can see that a lot more has changed than at first meets the eye.
Yes I would say that it was well worth $20
