About Player Made Rules
We receive many emails from players complaining about how their opponent broke a rule that had been agreed upon before their game began.
ToH's longstanding policy regarding player-made rules is clearly outlined in the
Players who feel the need to include certain rules (eg. no Dip, Fly, D Door, Hit/Run, etc.) in their games are entirely free to do so, but please be forewarned that the Honor Council will not make any rulings in disputes which involve the breaking of such rules. We will not reverse losses, restore rankings points, or adjust player records for games that were lost because such rules were broken.
However, it should be noted that we will severely penalize those individuals who insist upon playing under such rules and then intentionally break them in order to obtain an unfair advantage over their opponents.
To put it simply, players are free to use whatever rules they wish in their games but shouldn't expect intervention from the Honor Council in the event those rules are broken.
Finals Tournament Round 2 [12/01/04]
Every player who has won at least
one game is rewarded with advance to round 2, but the
more wins, the easier it will be to move to round 3.
Gustn has the strongest
position, by winning all 3 of his games, and moving
automatically to round 3. Gagatek,
and Middle_warrior all won
2 games, and play a standard match of best 2 out of 3
vs. a single opponent.
For those who one just one game in round 1, have a more
'endurance' match set up, where they do two sets of best
2 out of 3 games, and only one of three of them from
each side can make it to the 3rd round. Deadline
for Round 2 is January 30th.
Finals Tournament [9/18/04]
A new season will probably start
in early 2005, also with the hope that we will have some
news of a forthcoming HeroesV. The Caesars
Finals will each have one victor for H3 & H4.
The Tournament will begin on October
Heroes 3 competitors: All Emperor & Lord
Ranked players may participate in the finals; expect to
be able to play until December.
For Heroes 4 competitors:
All Legionnaire & Baron Ranked players over 1400pts
may participate in the finals; expect to be able to play
It will be an elimination tournament, with the first
round allowing multiple matches with different players
involved. Visit last years' Caesars'
Finals to see how the setup worked.
So now Frank,
both longtime veterans of ToH dominate the Emperor Rank,
both whom have been there before. Both are Heroes
III ranked players, with the top Heroes IV player still
ranked as Legionnaire (Camoes).
is it that while the main rankings
are dominated by Heroes III
addicts, the ToH Clans are
almost entirely now populated with Heroes
IV players? Maybe because Heroes IV players
have had more experience with the clans system from last
season, or the fact that there is a lot more patience
and cohesion required to keep a clan war going as
opposed to random, free challenge games.
Whatever the case, we hope that Heroes
V will reunite the players together again :)
Three Heroes III
players have made it to the Lord rank, surpassing the
1700 point mark. Question now is, who will
be the first Emperor?
a Bulgarian player relatively new to ToH, has the lead,
and seems to enjoy that ultrapopular map Desert War,
where most of his games are played.
a longtime veteran of Heroes II and Heroes III, also
with a record number of Azure dragons to his name (5
Azures means he has been Lord/Emperor for 5 seasons!!),
is possibly the most advanced Heroes III
veteran/tactician in ToH. He is mostly a Random
Map player, with his favorite fixed map being Hourglass
a total random map addict, playing 95% of his games on
randomly generated maps. He seems to play anyone
Getting too much
into the Game?? [5/11/04]
Heroes 4 addict Insatiable has lost his way onto the
battlefield. That big smile on his face might
change when he realizes how small his sword really
is. For more fun pics of players, visit here.
3 Map Issues [6/3/04]
It has come to
our attention that some have been playing and reporting
illegal maps for game play. NOTICE: Small
maps of any make and Tactician
Maps are NOT eligible for Tournament play. To try
to prevent this, neither _SELECT MAP or Unlisted Map are
available on the report page selections. If your
opponent has already reported a game with one of these
selections send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the exact map name to receive credit for the game.
You will also notice that many maps have been added to
the available selections from other tournaments. If you
have a favorite map that still is not listed, you are
welcome to send a copy of the map
to me for consideration and addition to the available
selections. ONLY maps
listed on the report page are eligible for credit for
tournament play. Thank you for your understanding and
patience and I hope you realize this is done to maintain
the integrity of the tournament. ~~Raven
Tactical Map Updated [5/6/04]
wars are now complete, and the lands of Axeoth are being
conquered. Heroes III and IV teams are pretty even
on conquest, but the Magic
currently have the most lands, and The
are the first to receive a clan
longtime Heroes Addict Madman award is an ugly medal,
but prestigious in its own right. The player who
has had the most games played is awarded this; in this
currently standing at 280
is in second place at 265
games, and Zud
a close third at 263
Mad Fight to the Top of the Ranks
are now seen moving up into the Baron ranks, though nobody has
achieved Legionnaire rank just yet. What is interesting is
how the Heroes III players are dominating the top ranks over
Heroes IV players. Mostly due to the fact that H3 still
has twice more activity.
So right now
are in the top positions, around 1350 points in Baron
Rank. The top Heroes IV players are somewhat behind, in
leading the way.
Warlords & a Reminder [3/22/04]
Heroes III and Heroes IV sides have opened up their first Clans,
Philosophy for H3, and a Rogue
for H4. Ark_troll1 and The_Teacher being the first
pioneers. Overall, it looks like the Heroes 3 players are
more active from what is seen on the rankings page.
The lower ranked Warlords shields have all been taken, and its a
smaller simpler subtournament for players who wish to boost
their prestige rankings just a little.
goes to players regarding reporting
wins & losses;
remember that there is a separate H4 and H3 reporting page on
the player control panel. You'll usually know you made
that mistake when you get errors reporting or finding the map
you played not on the list.
Tournament of Honor United
ToH is now
reopened with a new look, and a new season begins together with
Heroes III and Heroes IV players on the same rankings
page. Players can participate in both sides if they wish,
having an account in both Heroes III and Heroes IV. Make
sure you are registered in both! Take note of several

where you will be spending a lot of your visits, reporting
wins, losses, and checking up on unreported games
Grand Masters of Heroes
all serious, 3 of the best heroes players sit
together to contemplate their next moves in the
