I’ve found I like the 128x128 maps better thus far; 64x64 just feels like a rush which will be won by dire dreaths. Maybe rats could counter dire dreaths, especially with the rat focus Wielder, I might try that at some point.
I’m enjoying the community maps at the moment, haven’t even made it through most of the official maps. I never really enjoyed random maps in HoMM, I guess I prefer a more curated experience, so the community maps are where my hopes are placed as I doubt there will be enough official maps to keep me happy. So far I’ve liked 2 of the 4 I’ve tried, with another being alright, so that’s a pretty solid start.
