    Posting this poll so people can let me know how they would like me to spend my time improving COTH. Each person gets two votes.

    I chose better terrain and focus on balance. Terrain, because it really sucks for today's standards, especially now when map limit is gone. And you can never go wrong with better balance. If I could choose 1 more, I would go with hero reworks. While I really like your new heroes, you should focus more on old ones. Some of them are desperate for reworks, or their spell kit is just outdated when compared with your newest masterpieces!

    Would you mind linking me to some maps that have better terrain?

    Many maps simply use a different scale so I have trouble recreating the great terrain done in those maps in COTH, especially since they have very limited collision on their models. We need space to maneuver armies.

    I chose more hero remakes and more items. I really like the new minor changes to heroes like blackhand and antonidas, and I'd love to see more like it. I'd also love to see strength/agility items that have on-use abilities like most intelligence items do.

    I pretty much completely disagree with adilmaru in terrain, I think it looks serviceable and I'm not really a fan of maps that have extremely detailed terrain. A lot of maps look beautiful but it's distracting and CoTH is a strategy game.

    I voted for new heroes and items. I feel that these parts are already in many ways the main strength of CotH, there is an enormous variation of builds and hero combinations to play around with. Especially items are an area in which many players play differently and it allows everyone to develop their own playstyle.

    I also disagree with Adilmaru when it comes to terrain (and other aesthetic changes). I wouln't say that making things more detailed is distracting, but it's not something I really care about either.

    I thought COTH had enough items, but if people want more we can put more in.

    One thing I dislike about League of Legends is that I think there are too many items (we aren't there yet though). Balancing so many item choices is an impossible task, and thus we see the same items over and over in games while other items sit in the dustbin. I'd like to think there is a role for every item currently in COTH, and I don't want that to go away.

    That said, feel free to create a thread on new item ideas or item remakes!

    One final note regarding agility/strength items have an active is that I purposely gave each intelligence item an active because intelligence itself isn't a great stat, but extra spells for spell casters make them worthwhile to purchase.

    Agility and strength items could definitely have an active, but they'd have to give a lot less strength and agility than current items.

    i voted for guides and remade heroes-these days i see more and more newbies playing coth and i think guides will help them a lot; also some heroes need rework, like teron for example-we see him so rarely and there is reason behind it- he is useless in mid to late game and his kit just dont seems that great. i think horde need couple support heroes like griselda. she is great for buffing orc heroes!

    I think this has been mentioned but would it be possible to insta-consume potions if we have 6 items?

    Can't they just be changed to single potions?

    What are your toughts on teleport to be a spell instead of item and be in place of the "patrol" button?

    I think it is a great idea. I don't believe I can replace the patrol button, and some heroes don't have any space on their command card, but I think I will eventually get around to creating a system to do this. It is going to be a lot of work though.

    Insta-potion consumption is another thing I am planning for heroes with a full inventory.

    You could change the patrol icon and detect the command through a trigger, but I don't think there's a way to change the description and then regular units would have it.

    Honestly, I love patrol and because I use it I don't want to remove it. I will make space on the command card eventually for this.

    Towers around the Dark Portal is doable.

    Are you talking about Horde towers outside of Stormwind used to siege? Or are you talking about the Alliance blocking off part of the path inside with Towers?

    With how I positioned the Horde shipyards, I'd have to redo the entire system if ships were to be available prior to Blue falling. It would also reduce the incentive to take Blue first, which is something I like. I'd like to hear more thoughts on this.
