Redexoskeleton. That's my name in game. Challenge me if you like (I am slightly above average) be sure to mention if it is a friendly or league game
A wise man is superior to any insults which can be put upon him, and the best reply to unseemly behavior is patience and moderation.
I know this topic hasn't been active for a while but I'll leave my two cents here.
I own Hero Academy pretty much since it came out, back in the day when it only had the Council and Dark Elves teams. Well, this is definitely THE most played game on my iPhone. I really, really enjoy it. In fact, I enjoy it so much I even got it on steam in order to have the complete teams set.
I was always a Nokia guy until they lost themselves on the smartphone market. Since the iPhone 4 came out I got one and hold dear to it 'til today. Well, for the first time in my life I'm considering moving to an android-based phone (Galaxy S4). One of the main reasons I didn't move earlier (Galaxy Note 2, for example) is because Hero Academy isn't there.
Yeah, this game is currently really important to me. So important I might choose a smartphone brand simply by its omission beyond ios limits.
I read the android version was being made for more than a year now and I know there might not be resources and/or enough Robot Entertainment members allocated in this project. But I'd really like this port to be made, from a consumer point of view, as I might actually make a phone upgrade and HA will not follow me.
I believe a lot of people might be facing the same thing I am right now, 'cause apple phones are kind of having a hard time to keep up with samsung and other manufacturers (without fanboyisms! I really like apple).
So please, RE, PLEASE, port it to android. I'm sure a whole LOT of people will buy it, even though a bunch might just get it illegally and overload your servers, things will eventually settle down and your fan base will be doubled or even tripled guaranteed!
LeWZ. Your sentiment is shared by many but we can only hope... With lack of news/updates in regards to the android port I don't know if it will happen any time soon. Could still use your iphone as an itouch over wi-fi. =P
Android users, take heart -- check out this recent RE tweet:
I need to get my new player guide ready
Mew? =^^= Tweet me at @TabbyNat!

Pshaw, you non-lawyers dont get it. "Working on that" could mean anything, including the slow burn thinking about working with an outside partner that they already disclosed. Robot has used lawyer-speak before, so I'm going to hold my enthusiasm.
I play mostly on iOS
Hero Academy : Yourtime
If you add/challenge me, please tell me. How you found me.
True, but we all have learned our lesson about getting our hopes up...right?
I am truly sorry to quash your enthusiasm, but here is what SixOkay said 10 months ago. Tell me, how is this different? Hint: its not
It may be that the work is actually at a vastly different stage. Certainly the last concrete statement about soliciting an external partner to handle the android conversion, was the most specific, ever, and provided reason for optimism. But the current statement is not specific, and amounts to nothing without further clarification.
I'm sure what SixOkay would say is that its hard to make public statements that dont get misinterpreted, and with the benefit of hindsight the original statement I quoted should not have been made, but that it was made it good faith at the time. I 100% believe all that. Not saying they are bad guys at Robot, or that they dont try to communicate accurately. Just saying that we need a *specific* statement before we get our hopes up.
Now thats specific! Cool!
So Robot changed gears and tackled Android in house, or your testing a build crafted by a partner?
To be launched with a new robot themed team?!?!
First of all, Thanks for giving us it more clearly now, cant wait to spam friends, to tell them it comes onto android! :D
any hopes to get it on blackberry IOS ?
By the way for the Iphone users is it worth to have it on the iphone? I usually play it on the ipad so not sure about how good it is on the reduced screen size.
I thought 3g was a decent speed still thanks for the input I'll give it a try.
more players is usually better
Update: Very, very close.
You'll know well before November. And no, that's not weird at all :)
Will there be balance changes with or before Android, or no?
Just asking because it would be nice to have updated guides packaged for the flood o' noobs.
