Last week, we've updated the section once again. But the update included just about 20 works, as nearly half of the maps we've received were turned down for not meeting our minimal requirements. Dear mapmakers! If you wish to have your works added to our collection, please try to make them worthy of it!
During the following two weeks, we will be "cleaning" the section. Problematic or outdated versions of some maps will be deleted, as well as the maps with serious bugs. All mapmakers who wish to delete their less successful maps may send a notice to email@example.com.

The prize money was 5700@, of which 1200@ were paid by the participants, 2000@ - donated by a charitable fund, and 2500@ were the Magistracy's support for this tourney.

A cast of players' property lists will be made on April 27, as we start a new Common Tourney in Heroes Lands 3». Remember, if you wish to have the artifacts having an SMS-price on the market included in your starting save, you must pay the specified sums through the SMS payment system. If you are not a resident of Russia, you can pay via following systems:ÑONTACT.
You may also pay for other players, or pay in advance for the next tourneys. On receiving the money, we will open an account for your profile, which you can manage by sending letters to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Saves of the Common Tourney in Heroes Lands 4 have been sent to their owners a week ago, and do not include any pre-paid artifacts.
We're eager to share some good news with you! As you could have already noticed, the advertisement banners on our Portal's pages are almost static. ;-) And that means we have a new advertiser. So please show some respect (and maybe pay a little visit ;-) ) to their site.
Another good news for all mapmakers: maps from our portal will be published on the CD for a polish magazine «Komputer Swiat GRY Extra». The whole issue will be dedicated to Heroes of Might and Magic V, which will be put on sales on May 19 this year.
Today we've improved the system of SMS-payment for artifact usage in our offline tourneys. The managers of the tourneys have fully reconsidered the list and changed prices for some artifacts, as well as added some new artifacts. Now, if you wish to have the artifacts with an SMS-price included in your starting save, you can also pay via this method if you are a subscriber of RTS or Tele2. We can also receive your payments through Western Union,WebMoney and ÑONTACT. Starting with the next round of main tourneys, it will be OBLIGATORY to pay for the artifacts which have an SMS-price. The list of these artifacts won't be reconsidered anymore, so be sure to pay in time if you want to see all of your artifacts in the starting save. We await for your transfers! A special account will be opened for your nickname, and you'll be able to manage it by sending letters to Gorbik@heroesportal.net .
The SMS payment system has been tested succesfully, and we've already started to receive your payments. Here you can see a file containing the list of your payments (we will NOT publish such reports later).
Today we have a new member in our team! Lady Lion Star has joined us. She’ll be the manager of the tourneys «Wild Lands 2» and «Citadel of Heroes2».
Today the clan “Sixth Element” has been disbanded, and a new clan «Arisen Past» has been registered. Now we have 18 clans. Also, Lady Pups has became a leader of the clan «Blades of Balance».
You can see the rules of these tourneys at their corresponding pages:
Wild Lands 2, Wild Lands 3, Wild Lands 4. The main feature of this tourney is that it is being held on a unified map, consisting of XL-sized maps. Such map exists only for Wild Lands 3 yet, and is still under construction, but you can see the completed part here. Wait until the map is downloaded completely. Right now, the Knights of the Round Table are voting to decide whether we should include this tourney into the list of the tourneys which take part in the annual rating of Heroes Portal players.
Also, here (Russian tavern) you may take part in the discussion of extra features which may be added to this tourney in the future, or offer your aid in developing the tourney maps.
Today new artifacts have been added to the market of HeroesLands 2, 3, 4, also some prices decreased, but you need to pay $ additionally. The sum of additional payment isn’t bigger than $5. See the details at the bottom of the market page. You can post your comments here (Russian tavern).
The official date of Heroes of Might and Magic V release is known. The game will be released on 05.19.2006. Meanwhile Ubisoft offers you to play Heroes Mini online. Let’s join! :)
As you can see, we have a lot of prize-winners this year, and it'll cost us dearly to manufacture the prizes, not even mentioning the delivery costs. We would be very grateful to all players who choose to transfer their real USD into virtual arrobas (currency of our Portal) during this period. We'll also compensate costs of the transfer with @. Transfers via Western Union would be especially appreciated, as we'll need real money to manufacture real prizes. :) To transfer money via this system, please contact us at email@example.com . If your sum is lower than 20 USD, we'll also accept it via WebMoney (this money will be used to pay for our website's hosting and traffic), and it's not even necessary for you to have your own purse - just purchase a card in your town and send it's ID number and the activation code to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here you may learn where to purchase a card. The exchange rate is 100@ for 1 USD. We thank you in advance for your help.

Another prize-winner has been added - Sir MelVik, who is entiled as Master of the tourney "Heroes Lands 3" in 2005 (Second place) and rewarded by a Heroes Portal T-shirt, an orc statuette with a memorable engraving, and a diploma of Heroes Portal. He is also given a special status with this title in his Heroes Portal profile. The mistake has been made due to the fact that his former nickname was Bruk Bond. That's why we strongly advise you not to change your nicknames.
