a novel idea for reviving HoMM8

I have fond memories of playing Heroes of Might & Magic: a Strategic Quest back in 1995. One of the first and most fun things about it was that when you approached an enemy stack there was a fair chance that instead of fighting you, yearning for greater glory, they would try and join you, becoming part of your army. This was a really fun aspect of the game that went missing in most later iterations.

Now, what if this was brought back to life? Like the Diplomacy skill in HoMM2&3, but more practical.

What if an updated HoMM8 contained Heroes capable of receiving and storing such beneficial reinforcements. What if instead of just having 7 slots for the same army, fighting battle after battle, additional stack slots could be created. Call it backup, a troop reserve, in the rear of the hero's army. It could be as simple as adding a few additional, extra slots for heroes' potential armies, whether fighting, or not. It would bring more strategy, variety, and a new dimension to gameplay. A simple addition to the formula of the past 25 years.

Thank you. Your opinions and critiques are welcome.

You can play using 2 heroes! The second can lead reserves ;0)))
I agree that 7 slots for units and 4 slots for machines is too much. 5 slots + machine in HI,II make these games more playable.
5 slots for units 2 for machines is enough. I think that like in HIV we can have more units in town to choice. Eg. 7 from 14. I this case gamplay style would be more different.

This has been discussed before and there is merit to the idea. Classic diplomacy could use some polish and it's easy to run out of slots, esp if there are also alt upgrades.

One of the many great parts of 1,2, and 4 is that not every faction can buy all their units with their town income alone. The game forces you out cause you rely on capturing other towns or gold mines.

Indeed. I recently played 4 and noticed that aspect immediately. I cannot say if I prefer that, but it's certainly challenging.

I do prefer that. In any case it is evident to me Ubisosft will not ever produce a good, fully featured, modddable and debugged heroes game again. (since V)

So, I propose fans join in in making a crowd-funded, fan created heroes-like TBS-RPG hybrid.

Gameplay merchanics can't be copyrighted so as long as it isn't set in the official worlds (Ashan, Axeoth, etc.) it will be fine.
