I forget one thing .. the fortification bonus to unit production must be in % again. In H6, each fortification level gave a bonus of +1core +1elite +1champion/per week. Champion must have strong stats but low growth. But as you write in the article, "1 titan will kill a dozen of sentinels", the % growth bonus will probably return, but you know, just to be sure..

GalaadleHaut Der Held

Yes please.

- Fort
Building a fort adds walls to a town.

- Citadel
This upgrade to the fort adds a moat and the primary arrow tower to a town. Presence of a citadel increases the production of creature dwellings by 50%.

- Castle
When a castle is built, it adds two arrow towers at half strength of the primary tower, and the standard walls are strengthened to fortified walls. Further, production of creature dwellings is increased by 100%.

One more thing - I wrote it many times before, but I think I should write it especially in this article ..

I love the idea of choosing between 2 champions. But it would be even cooler if there is more core/elite creatures. 4 possible core creatures, from which we have to choose 3. The same thing with elite units. It would add a lot more strategies and replayability. Maybe you could make this in an expansion ? ;)

Make it Mummy/ Forgotten King
And make it elite. It doesn't fit right having a mummy as core. Mummies are powerful people that have been given very strong enchantments and protection spells to be revived at a later point. When their tomb is violated other enchantments also activate that give them the power and the strength to avenge their disturb slumber

Ифрита, бегемота и рыцаря смерти думаю и так вернут, в пятёрке как раз вместо старухи с косой рыцари должны были быть но боссы из Юбисофта распорядились сделать нового персонажа для нежити и вот Нивалы придумали умертвий.

Again, very very good news!

I'm happy about the power range. Really good decision.

Also, I'm glad we have to use different tactics against different factions. The more tactical the game is, the better!

I really hope there will be a lot of neutral creatures, it would bring so much life to the game.

Of and of course: GOLD DRAGONS!!! Oh yeah!!

- Glad power range is more considered, even though I still think the old 7 levels system is better, am looking forward to see how this turns out.
- Military doctrines gets a nice inspiration, hope devs look deep into it.
- Alternative champions is a great idea. Next step, one alternative per tier !! :P It is very important to feel the epic strong of Champions though, nice.
- Dwellings, still skeptic about area controls but still am curious about it.
- Neutral creatures : Exactly.

The military doctrine initially had me worrried because factions being weak or strong against other certain factions might potentially make the life tough on you if you're fighting your nemesis.
HOWEVER, if there are options to even out the imbalance, which the article seems to imply, then the solution for that problem is already implemented.

11
PayZzzz 
November 19, 2014 18:09:53

I understood it that way: If you are playing with the standart stratedgy a faction offers, you might be off bad against certain other factions doing the same.

To quote the text: "Standard Haven has advantages over standard Necropolis"

So I also guess that Necropolis is still able to defeat Haven, if it uses the right tactics.

If this is done right, it might add incentives to try variable gamestyles for each faction. Let´s hope they do it right..

14
Aseved Der Beschützer
November 19, 2014 20:54:52

I read it as e.g. playing Haven vs Dungeon you will be more constrained wrt viable strategies (as, for example, you might have a very difficult time if you choose one of the champions), but there will still be strategies evening the field or giving you a little edge.
On the other hand, playing Haven vs Necro, most strategies will work (altough some might be not so good).
If that is the case, I welcome the initiative.

For those saying the gargoyles look like harpies. Weren't the wizards the ones that made the harpies in Ashan? So wouldn't it make sense that the designs for their gargoyles might mimic the beasts they have created?

denisa016 Der Wahnsinnige
November 20, 2014 18:24:50

I agree with ur "wizards had harpie, hey maybe they made statues of harpies and used them for war."
But we should have some diversity, not the same unit in both factions. The H6 gargoyle was fantastic, it would have been easy for them to recycle it the same way they recycled the rest of the units.

Nobody asked for a harpie in academy!

16
Sorrow1980 
November 20, 2014 19:27:18

Doesnt matter. They look like Harpies with a Sphinx head. The only reason they look as they do is cuz they want to fit a female unit in academy. The design is so bad it makes kappa look awesome.

I dont say your point is wrong though - about the story thing i mean. But story is story and it pieces like that can easily be rehased/rewritten no problem. Make gargoyles look like gargoyles and if they need to include a female unit everywhere than mage the wizards female.

23
denisa016 Der Wahnsinnige
November 20, 2014 19:53:17

They have a djin, why make a ugly unit just to put a female unit in?

Nobody asked for a lot of female units in every faction, plus female units dont need human breasts or human features, the cabir could be a female for all we know!

The problem is the human breasts on every female unit. Dont they know any better way of making a female unit without adding human breasts to show its female?
If they make a female BEHEMOTH, theill give it human breasts to show its female, why? Its retarded!

23
denisa016 Der Wahnsinnige
November 20, 2014 19:56:52

If its an animal, than make a female version of that animal, dont give it human female features!
If u didnt guess by now, my problem is that the units that arent human, have human female features, as if were retarded and if we dont see a pair of breasts, we might confuse it with a guy!

They can make the cabir female and keep the same art. It would look great, and we can imagine a male cabir having a bit more color like a male lizzard would as opposed to the lizzard fair sex!

16
Sorrow1980 
November 20, 2014 20:04:29

Agree :)
Also all the units in Acadmey line up fit better to be female than the Gargoyle.
Djinn, Wizard, Cabir, bird, rakshasa...

15
Kornbeef Der Finstere
November 20, 2014 20:07:46

Maybe the Cabir is female? Nothing says it's male?

I don't disagree with your points. I feel that gargoyles should be an asexual object with non-human, scary features. These are more constructs or statues. I am also for more variety as there are way too many humanoid units since Ubisoft took control. There is a whole world of mythologies to choose from, no need for duplicates.

23
denisa016 Der Wahnsinnige
November 20, 2014 20:13:36

Then we agree fully! Like a just married couple before they hate each other and get divorced :D

Jokes aside, i would love the gargoyle to not have a sex. But since Ubisoft insists on making it female, i simply looked for things that might improve the concept and make it less weird.
Also if the units was called: STONE HARPIE than the concept they made would be great!

Thats my problem with Ubisoft as well, everything "has to have human features"! I hate this stupid policy of theirs!
