    Hero Academy league preparations

    Hello!

    1 hour into the game and I'm already in love. It was expected anyway, I have been trying to get people to jump into a game like this for more than a year.

    Anyway, same way there's a Frozen Synapse league we can create another one for this game :D

    Smaller well defined ruleset with asymmetrical yet (more or less) balanced factions. No econ, no leveling, no deckbuilding, no randomness other than "deck" draws. Map control, skill combos, deck control, "playing the player".

    I'm interested. I'm also a complete newbie, having played the game for the first time after purchase via Steam. My steam name is Lykurgos too, and I welcome any RPS opponents. Please challenge me or post here if you'd like me to challenge you.

    P.S. I'm almost certainly mostly harmless

    I'm interested in the game, but I've already been burned out by many other "but it's (insert uber cheap price here)€ only!"; Is there any way I can try this out without having to sell my soul to Apple?

    It's server-based multiplayer so no. It's a 5€ leap of faith. Imagine Clash of Heroes, Archon, HoMM combat or Summoner Wars. If you liked them all, this feels like the same.

    I'd be interested in this. Can there be a newbie league as I've only just picked up this game.

    Sign me up for this! I found all of the challenges to be pretty neat puzzles, and some regular matches would be welcome (especially since the game lacks bots...grrr).

    Kinda got interested in the video TB released yesterday but overall it seems a bit too expensive to me. Would love to play this but as long as they have this very odd pricing model I fear I have to resist.

    From what I've read on the Steam forums, you can buy the base game on Steam, then (ab)use an iEnabled friend to purchase the other teams much cheaper and they'll be usable in your Steam copy.

    Lykurgos, I shall take up the gauntlet just as soon as I get home from work in ~4 hours. Prepare to face...a random team decided by a die roll!

    I don't think you've posted here with your Hero Academy user name w..2

    That's a shame was about to buy it but was doing my due diligence. So the community is dead then?

    P.S: Apologies for he necro but it seemed the place for it.
