Is the Necropolis campaign even POSSIBLE?
I played all the Heroes of Might & Magic games. Finished a few of them. Enjoyed most of it.
But right now, I feel like I've bought the most frustrating game in the history. Just after the tutorial campaign, I went to play with what has always been my favorite faction in the saga: The Necropolis.
Well, I tried the first mission of the Necropolis campaign. Four or five times. I spent litteraly 5 or 6 hours on it. Well, it's hard to confess, but boy, I CAN'T EVEN FINISH THE FIRST BLOODY MISSION. It's simply too hard. The inquisition begins the map with three cities and three forts, and they're just more numerous, more powerful, with higher rank units. Each time you take a fort, they send an army to take back another one, in a manner that you can't intercept the army, and they ALWAYS suceed to capture it at the seventh day of the week, using it to build units the next turn. You can't produce enough units to hold two fronts, And if you try to wait several weeks in one of your city to build a strong army, weel, they build a stronger one, with higher ranks units, in their capitol. When I tried to attack the city in the south east, there were 200 griffins in it, no way to win the damn battle. So yes, Time is of the essence, but I don't see any flaws in the bloody defense. And I'm just playing in "normal" mode. Man, are ALL the missions THAT hard??? 'cause it reminds me of the worst missions in Heroes III, and that's not a praise.
