I believe it's you expecting another LTA-type game and playing something entirely different. If you are a person that believes AoEs are what makes heroes interesting than well... I don't really know what to say. All spells of demon heroes have their utility, if you don't see it okay, if you believe that they could be made more interesting sure, you can propose the changes and if they will be indeed more interesting and will not follow AoE-wacky scheme then sure. From what you're saying the greatest problem seems to be durability of units which causes teh battles to be dull, 'cause they are too long. I really have to play the game to see it for myself, it could be that the greatest problem of the game is actually the increased HP of all units. It seems like for people the game is interesting when they just throw OP stuff at each other and a massacre happens, 'cause the lack of AoEs and crazy spells that give you +100% damage or sth is the reasons for complaints. I could always be wrong, but if it seems that lack of AoEs on heroes is making the game boring and dull, then I kinda don't know what could be the correct answer. What Mesis has stated. There's a both text warning and a 'warning' sound similar to when KJ summoning is started in LTA. The spell is indeed intended, and was created to spice things up. What I agree about is the fact that it might be too easy to pull it off and I might make it harder to obtain for faction that is able to do so. 1 minute is really not that long, and you can easily prevent from a disaster if you are aware of that. If you aren't and don't pay attention then well, you know the answer. But do tell me, if you see that you are unallied with your ally, do you like 'ugh, what the hell happened' and keep fighting your previous ally? You don't. Everyone that has somekind of mind will pull back units to cease the fighting with his previous ally. Because for me it seems that the guy that left the game did just the opposite and proceeded to slay his former ally only to later complain about his own mistake. Gods are always with those who use catapults. Or trebuchets. I believe so, I've changed the triggers and it should be alright, but I couldn't recreate the situation we had ingame so I'm not 100% sure.
