Hello patient followers of H3SW!

Two weeks ago we announced the reveal trailer for the next version of H3SW to be released this year. If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check it out:

The next update will include a lot of new features such as H2-styled siege battlefields, additional H2 spell animations, improved town screens, more than 10 new maps from HoMM I, II and III, bug and balance fixes as well as new music packs which allow you to easily customize the in-game soundtrack to your liking whether you prefer the original H2SW themes, the expansion Price of Loyalty music, the retro MIDI soundtrack or maybe even orchestral version as provided by the wonderful Heroes Orchestra! You can mix and max however you like.

Here is the first of a new line of promo screenshots. This one shows the improvements made to the Sorceress town screen. We hope you enjoy and thanks for supporting H3SW!!

Is there a list of ballance changes?
For me the wonderfull ballance (or lack therof) was one of the magic things about homm2 formula, that just added layer of additional challange.
We would anyways not play competitevely, but usually go for maps where it was not possible to select Walrock or Wizard to play as e.g. Knight against Impossible Wizard AI oponents. There was one XL map there that was really good - you could chose either Knight, Barbarian, Sorceress or Necroman and Wizard / Warlock was AI only. Excellent homm2 challange.

Anyways: Can I turn off the ballance changes and go with nicelly unballanced original version?

While we strive to make all classes/factions viable, we also didn't forget about the relative strengths and weaknesses they each posses. The middle way is to make sure all classes can perform well, but some may be better suited for certain maps/games/opponents than others.
