First of all, thank you for this wiki, it is quite helpful. I love this game and I finished it with a human mix and an elf ranger. I am trying to build a dwarf gunner, but it seems I don't really get into it.
I would love to have a good multiplayer in this game. In my experience, although there are still some connection issues (30% of the games) and there are not many players online, the multiplayer seem to be playable now. And it is fun!
However, I would love for the developers to explore and expand the multiplayer possibilities, as it is quite limited right now.
1) The Coop is always the same level and I have never survived more that 7 minutes after the update (probably my fault). Endless is great, but why do not let us play the already existing waves in multiplayer?. I think it would be great 30 minutes on a row playing waves 30 to 35 in coop.
2) The PvP mode is also fun, but the differences in level makes it boring. When I use my endgame characters with great stuff, it is boring for me and unfair for them against new players (most of them, in my experience). Even when I use my "in development" level 14 character is unfair because I have all my preferred units maximized at level 5. I would prefer that there was a proportional penalization in damage for higher level players and that all units have the same level in PvP.
3) It would be amazing to have some kind of tournaments, either in Coop or in PvP. Developers could get some cash into the game and it would keep the game interesting a bit longer (would love to compete for some good legendary stuff).
I played multiplayer all the time in H&C1, singleplayer wasn't half as intresting to me. But surprisingly I haven't played any PvP in H&C2 yet and singleplayer got me quite hooked for almost a month now. I played only about 5 PvP matches and it lagged all the time anyway, so yeah...
But as far as I can tell, PvP will never be as much fun as it was in the first game. It was something completely unique there, because one played the evil side and had different skills, different units, completely different hero(es) etc. It provided asymmetric gameplay, which was really fun. It was also an easy way to balance the matches.
H&C2 has some PvP balance tricks as well, such as the weaker hero's castle will have stronger walls and the newly introduced War Bannermen that balance damage and so forth... But yeah, it's nowhere near as fun or balanced in my opinion. Granted, I haven't played much PvP yet because of connenction issues (even in the new version) and, as you said as well, my characters (all level 99) are way too powerful for the opponent to beat anyway.
What I would love to see is a re-make of PvP from the first game.
you know what they should dp make the game on android free so that threr would be more people playing and the developer would earn some big bucks cause its not fare theres a free version at apple store why couldnt there be one on android
Can we get some names in here and play some organised multiplayer? I never find anyone with the search feauture. Like gamecenter names etc. Add me Robertgosa and invite for some coop games :)
Feel free to leave your name down here as well.
I have only entered one mp and I think it lagged out. If someone wants to coop I can show you the end state. Endless endless build. Do not know how to make a video to put up but solution is there in a build. No hack or exploit. Plus 5 game endless is the max. Character 175 is the last level up.
Dwarves for the win. If you put three dwarves as heroes on the endless and you have their intense reload perk maxed the cumulative is more that 100% so the towers become continuous firehoses. To win on the map you take a Dwarf and research the Dwarf veteran and just survive until the perk completes and then spend all your money on plainsmen. That will win siege every time.
