@Tennmuerti said:That's okay, I just figured I'd ask because this kind of information isn't exactly readily available. I played the demo for the last game, I just had no idea what the multiplayer element is like in the series, and I figured I'd ask because of the public beta being available now and all.Erm have you played any of the HoMM series before? It's a turn based strategy. There is no coop per-se. There is multiplayer with upto 8 players (at least that's what in the beta so far) any of the players can be substituted for AI or disabled. You can create any number of teams, so yes in that way you can be in an alliance with another player. Spectator mode is not in the demo, but honestly this is not a kind of game that needs spectator slots. As far as modes go I'm not sure, there are 3 options atm plus custom settings, but I'm still going through the beta since it was only released yesterday.What this gentleman said. Maybe you're getting a misrepresentation of this game, but as far as I can tell Heroes VI is still probably a turn based strategy game. And it's way too slow for any sort of spectator mode. If you want to really take a look, the first 4 games of the series are on Good Old Games, and the 5th one is on steam.
As for spectating, I beg to differ my good gentle sirs! Forget ye not the legacy of chess -- my god... the intensity!
