My 14 year old son and 6 year old daughter are huge fans of the Heroes series.
As such, we often visit this site together and my input tends to be a consensus view from the three of us plus my wife.
Please. Would you, could you do some moderating here?
The spamming vulgar commentary from ChaosAvatarX is embarrassing.
I don't understand, why fake-accounts cannot be deleted! Broui, you are not alone with your anger!!!
Not just CA...
I strongly advice you to keep your children away from here. This blog is under little to no moderation, and if every topic has run out, when the articles have dried up, then the madness materializes in our midst and the proverbial hell breaks loose.
Tread carefully, here there be monsters.
6 y.o. fan? Really?
no way it wiill be done- if so, a long time ago there would have been some actions and bans (well, it sems that defeding spiders is the biggest crime on that site, as case of poor Spider King shows- and he will remain in our memory forever)
Maybe in Paris we will convince Dev to change that and enforce some harsher treating ;)
lol Marble you sound like a cute damsel in distress :P
P.S. I agree that some moderation is needed here. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't have some moderation inside ur own family.
Just think that he is talking that in a boy like your son!And even worse this boy,lightavatarx hasn's his parents here he tries to give us enjoymet with his times!I admit that i was trolling him but only because there was a bad period that he was spamming and giving us links
Then don't waste your time, get up and save me!
well, I strongly recommend to show Your children this page :D
A good lesson of life and how to be hard, patient and how to rerspond in an appropriate3 manner while being dropped with s**** by another person :D
BTW Have Your son participated in all the votes on this site? o:O
But you're not a cute damsel.
Please, ban ChaosAvatarX account.
He's still lucky he can't read russian threads (I hope, he can't) xD
Details, details...just details xD.
upvote this... perhaps they see that and ban these morons!
Yes, my 6 year old daughter is a big fan. Recent, but big. She's played H5 and H6. She doesn't have a favorite faction just yet, but is currently playing a map on H6 with the dark elves.
I do show the kids the site, but avoid the comments for obvious reasons.
Because I won't let them sign up here themselves, my votes are really "our" votes. We talk about it.
I have talked about the silly discussion around women heroes.
Since she invented a game for she and her friends to play at school recess called, "Superhero Princess", it doesn't take much imagination to guess where she comes down on the subject.
None of my business but IMO 6yrs is too young for H5 and H6.
H2 or H3 does fine though.
Im calling friend to do a little "cleaning".
14 y sounds enough old to survive reading through this site, I think.
But this place is embarrassing, indeed.
I'm sorry but if they are truly reading our comments they would do something about long time ago, after "A message from the MMH7 Team" i thought they would do something about it but maybe this message was only written because of hatred against Erwan, c'mon do something with this trolls, they were even posting porn here, you should ban them at least for that !
"Since she invented a game for she and her friends to play at school recess called, 'Superhero Princess', it doesn't take much imagination to guess where she comes down on the subject."
Haha My friend, your daughter is the kind of woman this world needs more of. Please tell her I'm honored to share a fandom with her. =)
I'm sure it's much better there than in Erwan's entrance. :P
Looks clean. And without any spiders or other pests. Maybe you are right.
It would be funny if they had a picture of Erwan on their dartboard and forgot to remove it for this photo xD.
That would be quite funny.
)) RAID working
Or they would have altars everywhere with the head of Erwan stuck on a spider picture :P.
Thanks for the welcoming! :)
I am glad to get in touch with you.
Some may know me already from the Heroes Community.
I will try my very best to answer your questions, but I won't spoiler gameplay-mechanics or something like that, no matter how nice you ask. ;)
I'm sorry in advance, if I don't answer all questions from the comments-section,
But I am sure, that there will be a next Q&A. :)
hello i will ask very nice :D but why you dont write on blue color like other developers here ?
Hi, my name is Erwan !Dear Limbic-Jaelle , go do some work ))) working hours ))
@ Plodnice , someone jokes
I have some questions:
1 - Will the mapeditor be available to players on release?
3 - How will scripting work in the edior, if available?
4 - Will it be possible to import custom assets into the editor, such as models/sound/music etc?
5 - Any plans on publishing an indepth article about leveldesign for heroes 7? I find that stuff really interesting. =)
Hi and welcome Jaelle! I have some questions as well.
How long have you been at Limbic and what is your role in the team?
I'm not sure if these count as spoilers but will the AI have different personality types (builder, explorer, warrior) like in the older games? Also will the editor be a plugin for UDK or a separate program?
\ Oh I'm sorry! I think it's Troll \ ))
Yes, we still have potentially the most important one in order - the GameDev Q&A, IIRC.
Glad to have you here, L-Jaelle, and I hope this community will not mess with your head too much;) For, like, I haven't seen Ubi-Nox here for quite some time now, hope he's allright:)
Thank you for being here!!! I think the heroes-side is on a good way...
The spectral-dragon is real amazing... Your team did a very good job!! Can we hope to see some none-fraction related dragons like Crystal dragons, Fire dragons, Earth dragons, Fairy dragons, Rust dragons, Azure dragons or Ice dragons? And if we think about mighty neutral creatures... what did you think about fallen-angels, death-angels, ice-demons and wraiths?? Can we hope to see them all? Or must we wait till the expansion?
Ummm, about what B_WE said... PLEASE NO.... Sorry, mate, but I want the champion creatures to feel really special and powerful and with what you say we would have more of them than the factional core or elite creatures. Having champions around the map more common than core (I know, I exaggerate, but only a bit) would totally cheapen them...
And on a more personal note - I do believe we have quite enough dragons as it is.
I have a question. What's on the cantina on monday?
@ptrsc: When we speak about dragons... that cannot be enough of them... (Heroes III Armageddons Blade should be a model, how it could work...) A level-8 unit is expensive to get, but difficult to kill... Of course they should be very rarely on the adventure-map... But when you will fight against them, you should plan well... I think level-8 creatures gives more opportunities and more fun for the game!!! It would be wonderful to see them!!!
And would make Dragon Utopia like a lot of fun. :D
Its quite hard to spoiler game mechanics. I would say that you should use oportunity to discuss this with fans before all change options will be missed. But of course, choice is yours. This already happened once during H6 creation ... big changes in skillsystem was ongoing and it ended as big disaster. There is only one who really can loose by keeping it secret and that is ubi at game launch when people discover that game isnt what they expected.
Where is the news?)
you're a proctologist?)
ahhh - you're just too young to know what a proctologist)
Go back to school, my little friend)
I wish you all what you wish others) Good day sir.)
chaos/light avatar :
seriously you is embarassing :)
i will get the fuck on ur mouth
Only one thing that will be in your mouth tonight
no a dick will be,real or plastic
i want to fuck a new by now
Honorable Members of this House,
it's time to remember the days of Heroes III. Where we have seen the unique principle of level 8 creatures...
Wouldn't it be nice to see some of this outstanding creatures back (Azure dragon, Crystall dragon, Rust dragon, Fairy dragon...)??? The construction of Heroes VII opens up the possibility to pick up this idea again. Even more... It would be very nice, if we can find in Heroes VII a lot more of such creatures! (Fallen angels, Death angels, and so on...)
Let me explain... Why level 8 creatures?
Because it would be a real challenge, to compete with this creatures...
Creation of new possibilities in the game...
...more fun in the game...
What does the implantation of level 8 creatures not mean?
...to find them at every corner...
The principle of level 8 creatures should be clear: They are real rarely to find in the adventure-map...
And they are not comparable with the bosses we have seen in Heroes VI. Because also a level 8 creature should be recruitable. But that should be difficult, because they are real expensive...
Azure and rust dragons?They sound good!Hmmm maybe would be good to have death angels...
♥ WoG/ERA ♥
(smile) Azure dragons were the most powerful creatures in Heroes III. 1000 hit-points... Real grave...
Death angels could fit very well in the universe of Heroes VII... Acheronian creatures which are related to death and decay (with abilities like vampirism, harm-touch, reanimation of death creatures, moral reduction of living creatures...)...
Tier 8 creatures,COUNT ME IN!!!
Unfortunately,i think there is no room for non-elemental dragons in ashan :( the lore would just not let them happen as they are the representatives of the elemental dragons (or something like that) maybe asha and urgash could have some tier 8 dragons,on the angels,yes,they should come!
To see those dragons return would be awesome, but that requires a lot of extra programming and drawing and implementing etc. If they plan on releasing an expansion, adding Azure Dragons etc should definately be considered.
Apart from these Dragons, that are not really part of any faction and the essence of the word 'neutral', perhaps there should be Level 8 units that kind of belong to a faction, even though they are 'neutrals' (cast-outs, even...)
Your Death Angel idea would fit Necropolis, for instance. A Fallen Angel on the other hand would go well with Inferno, but we shouldn't add to much angels. I mean, people might start complaining about an Angel Quotum.
Academy - Spirit of the Circle
Dungeon - Shadow Avatar
Haven - Sun Gryphon
Stronghold - Storm Wyvern / Earth Shaker (depending on your preferences regarding Father Sky or Mother Earth)
Sylvan - Crystal Dragon (like the alternate H5-upgrade of Green Dragon)
Necropolis: Death Angel.
Inferno: Rage of Urgash (some sort of fire-monster avatar kind of thing)
Sanctuary: Mizuchi (a powerful, dangerous water dragon, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mizuchi)
Fortress: Berserk Thane
correction: stronghold - THE MIGHTY BEHEMOTH (since we probably won't get them in lineup)
Nice idea. Though there should be some limits to it, so that it won't be easy recruiting them, or even building a dwelling for them.
Energy,the idea is that you can't have these creatures from a town because they are faction-related neutrals,and should you be lucky enough to find a dwellwing for them on the advanture map,you still need to defeat the guards (damn hard to do) and then ou can spend enourmus ammount of resourses to buy them,so there you have the limit!
Thank you for your positive feedback!
I see our noble council have a variety of ideas... That's cool and that is why i am with pleasure part of it... How ever... When i suggest the principle of level 8 creatures, I meant not only the insertion of dragons... (much as I love them)...
@Marblethrone: Your ideas are real interesting!
Count me in, lvl 8 creatures were a nice addition to H3, those azure dragons were so hard to kill.
I like Marble's ideas but I'd change Crystal Dragon for Gargantuan
I like it. +1
Crystal Dragons should be related to Academy if were aligning one closer to each faction because Crystal Dragons are technically constructs.
We all love this idea. I remember back in the day it took at least 2 months worth of creatures to fight Azure Dragon's Crystal Cave. In the end, a weak hero may lost almost half of its army to successfully conquer it. However, owning a Azure Dragon gave me great pride in accomplishment and power. I was able to do the same to my enemies as what Azure Dragon did to me. Enemy hero ran from afar when they spotted the present of Azure Dragons in my army.
Hi :) I have created new faction "Téssera" it's me trying bring back Conflux from HIII to Ashan :)
I have created:
-CULTURE AND POLITICS
and of course a line-up with pictures, descriptions and abilities
It's my entry to 'International Create a Town Contest' Hope you like it :)
Please share your thoughts about it here or in HC ;)
Minastir, you greek by any chance?
I can see the heavy inspiration from Theros block of magic the gathering among other things ;)
Though i don't know how much the Conflux can coexist in greek culture
nope, I' from Poland :D I just love greek mythology
every faction has some kind of setting like necropolis - egyptian and sanctuary japanese, so i thought this faction could be ancient greek, Yes there is a lot of inspiration from Theros but Téssera is actually 4 in greek, cities names are places where greek temples of gods are similar to greek myth, like in Theseion there is Temple of Hephaestus etc.
I know :P I am Cypriot-Greek. Studying in Greece for the Last 9 years and i have visited most of the Towns-Landmarks you mention :P
Cool! This really inspires me to put some serious work into my heroes world!
and about the name, hmmm i don't know 'polis' might be better name but won't it loose the sens of four cities ? i mean polis would suggest it's in one place, or maybe i overthink this
thanks! ;) @mediczero
@Articun or maybe rename it to Polis and under write also known as Téssera
You could name the Faction "Polis" to imply its structure and have it been known as the Tesseris Polis as a sub name. Because in the end, Tessera is only a number. It's like you refer to the silver cities and calling them "seven"
Also Mike, i hope i am not coming off too strong with my suggestions. They are just that, suggestions. I hope in my trying to help, i am not coming off as a show off or a know-better
Now that i think about it, "Polis Πόλη" in singular is also "Polis Πόλις" in plural. That means, that the same word, sounds the same in singular (city) and plural (cities) in greek. ;)
Or name them Tetrapolis? Or search up what means element in greek and make something from that. BTW this is a pretty good one,i would vote it to be part of any new heroes game.
I don't know if the term Tetrapolis keeps the sense of four cities. I have never heard of it being used as a term. Although, the faction having Four main cities does not need to be named as the number of the cities. Imho ofc
@Articun oh no, I naprawdę wdzięczni za pomoc, wiem nic o języku greckim i Google nie jest pomocne, jak w innych językach ! thank you !! :)) now, I'm going to change it for sure
oh wait, i wrote it inpolish hahaha "I really appreciate your help, I know nothing about greek language and google is not that helpful as with other languages"
If you want to choose the name Polis, keep in mind that it can refer to one city or many cities. That which actualy changes in grreek is one letter. Pol-i-s. The i can be either η which goes for one city Πόλης or it can be ι which means many cities Πόλις
If i remember my grammar correctly :P Always was my weak spot in school
@Articun but isn't it a good thing ? because it's one faction but multiple cities
Well, Haven is a safe place but has many cities that act as a safe place. Sanctuary means a place of solitude or isolation but also the factions has many cities. The name of the Faction resembles the main theme of the society it represents.
The Stronghold is not just a very good fort, or the Fortress is not an impenetrable building. In that sense, Polis, could refer to the main structure of your Faction civilization and the story can explain that there are 4 major cities under the name Polis
@Articun one more thing, if I'm not bothering you too much :) I'm changing the text right now and how properly say the people of polis, i mean like there is Athens and the people are 'Athenians' and how to say this about polis ?
People of polis would be Polites (πολίτες) meaning citizens.
do you know maybe how to also change the name of the thread it didn't changed with the first post change
Only one little deficiency, phalanx keader - the name. Crew made of leaders? Same as when we have like 80 Minotaur Kings with 160 Medusa queens. Now i have 2 most favorite factions Polis and Wanderers.
The Archon is so damn cool. Nice idea mixing ancient Greece with Conflux also great idea having the worship of multiple dragon gods to tie it in with Ashan :)
Yeah and theese pictures. Sight orgasm :D
Awww, thank you Matoob :)
Very nice words, and really inspires me to keep going. My next project for the ICTC will be a Hive Faction based on Insects. You can find the draft of the lore setting a few posts down. ;)
@Articun did you wrote it for @Matooob ? because we have the same avatar, and maybe you have made mistake, if not I'm sorry for cousing drama :D
yes i was mistaken (not all messeges have loaded for me) and i do also like Wanderers very much !! :))
great work, greeat pictures, great work, great concept
One of the best (if not the best) ideas and factions created by a fan (and even challenging some original factions), great work!
Can you show us pitcure of guy who first mentioned spiders in Necropolis?
Probably they thought of the idea watching the latest Spiderman movie.
Heroes II, the emblem of the necro was a Spider (Dragon wars, Suflegst and the part of the necro campaign). It's not smh 100% new
Come on guys!Spider's ideas is good for necro!
It would if the entire spider cult idea wasn't overused... and if the spider looks like a part of the undead.
*undead faction, must be undead (no edit button yet)
The spiders fit with dead!For me spider's cult is a very good idea!
in many cultures spider is symbol of death and dark aspect of life and creation
also symbolise creation. Just as spider weaves its web Asha weaves the universe
Yes! and the picture when you chose purple colour, was a spider.
Get red of spiders!
*get rid of spiders
The spiders are the only new thing in heroes VII necropolis!
If we get rid of spiders we will have the same heroes VII!
Not exactly. Skeletons aren't shooters and namtaru aren't present.
Even more funny is the fact the devs stated they wanted to keep the Necropolis faction as intact as possible.
Yeap,this is the best part indeed!(kidding)
Hey there, Jaelle. I'd like to know more about your approach to the game development, why did you agree to develop H7 game and what is your (developers) opinion about previous heroes games.
Yeah, we'd like to hear why they accepted this task.
Stay tuned for part 2!
The word 'patience' must have left most people's dictionary these days.
We can get ourselves satisfied if we don´t get a corporative answer :(
Now that Limbic-Jaelle has joined the website to give us updates too and talk to us, I think she earns her own unique avatar, like Ubi-Nox and Marzhin. So if YOU, Ubi and Marzhin, read this comment, please consider giving her an awesome avatar!
Give Limbic-Jaelle Her Own Avatar :D
Please give me Jeremiah unique avatar "Nomination -The fight with feminism"
Can't she do that on her own? Besides, if she cared, wouldn't she have done it on her own?
She said that Ubi/Marzhin are the ones that can give her an avatar, so....
"Maybe I will get some, if they're generous. :D".
oh limbic-jaelle you is my new favourite moderator here now :) and who else thinks same ?
i dobrze ze rozumiesz trochę polski :))
dziękuję bardzo :) Masz Upvote dlatego. :D
I am a generous god.
I agree :)
@L-Jaelle (->L-Jae->L-J-> Eljay?;DD)
And a very modest one, as well;DDD
You have a hard job.Many people of different nationalities are very fond of the game heroes.
A lot of criticism. But everyone likes heroes. Good luck to you!
\my bad english sorry \
A very difficult job you have is so true I for 1 wish good luck because I have loved these games for so long they have always been my favorite of all the games I have played.
"Most feminists don't actually hate men, its usually just minority of crazies who say they're feminist to excuse their hatred"
What's your proof for this? If man-hating feminists is indeed a minority, why are these minority causing so much havoc and succeeding in demonizing men?
- Google Erin Pizzey. She got death threats from feminists for creating a shelter for men abused by their wives.
- Australia and NZ bans, men for sitting near children. Not strangers, men.
those r just 2 e.g.
ugh, another website bug...
Jeremiah, you post legitimate concerns about feminism and I agree with you. Feminism is a real problem in the west. However, I urge you, if you really care about these issues, please post it somewhere else. People come to this website for the game, not feminism.
I agree that feminism is toxic but if you shove it down people's throats, you'll just push them away.
@Arch_Gabriel42 - he does post legitimate issues about feminism but he posts it in a gaming website. That is why he is a troll.
Thank you for summarizing this so well.
There are certainly issues but, to paraphrase movie theaters.
"There's a time and place for sociopolitical commentary, a gaming website is neither the time nor the place."
People, Jeremiah doesn't post "legitimate issues." He doesn't understand feminism at all. He just spams MRA propaganda.
Really, he's just a troll and he needs to stop flooding this blog with his crazy vendetta.
Please understand that feminism is complex, which is why it's studied in top universities. If you haven't earnestly researched it, then you don't truly know what you're reacting to, and unfortunately you're more likely to be reacting to caricatures and preconceived notions (such as the "man-hater feminist" which is a complete hoax and myth).
However, while feminism is a complex humanist ideology, the basic premise is simple: both men and women (as well as trans people and intersex people) have the same value and should have the same rights and opportunities. There's no reason for anyone to feel so threatened by it.
Please also understand that Jeremiah has been trolling for a long time. He's been banned from sites. He's obsessed. And he's bitter. He's spreading MRA ideals. Some of them may seem like valid arguments at first glance, but most of them are either 1) lies or 2) not actually in disagreement with feminism.
MRAs are a hate group. They're not above lying and their "arguments" are full of anger, not rationality. Jeremiah doesn't even realize that some of his beliefs, such as supporting men who have been abused, or getting rid of gender biases in child custody cases, ARE a part of feminism. He completely refuses to challenge his beliefs. He wants desperately to believe in all the angry MRA rants; the angry rants of a hate group.
I'm an MRA. Although, MRA and anti-feminism is not directly proportional, we tried to be nice but feminists always tries to block any event that helps men. Jeremiah's Erin Pizzey fiasco is one example. Feminists protesting in Toronto, Canada because MRAs held a conference talking about men's issues is another example.
I don't think there's any anti-feminist that became an anti-feminist and didn't do research. Feminism is the mainstream. People are likely to default on believing it.
All dragons require equality ! ))
I remember times when Sorceress/Elven town had only female Heroes. And no one had any problem with it. No whining trolls, everybody enjoyed the game.
Well I believe that all human beings have worth and should be entitled to the same opportunities. My views happen to fall under the label 'feminist'. Do I hate men? No, not at all, I don't 'hate' anyone. It's terrible that Pizzey got death threats, there needs to be less of a stigma around men who are victims of domestic abuse.
Proof which I doubt you will read or think about:
I would prefer to stop this mistaken conversations and start talking about the game. Man or female Asha uses all...
TROLL SPOTED! BACK TO YOUR HOMES EVERYONE!
let the witcher do the job...
Feminism, in and of itself, is a philosophy which advocates for a social, legal, political, and economic equivalency between men and women.
Emphasize the word PHILOSOPHY.
Anything else is simply not feminism.
Paranoid delusions to the contrary, there is no conspiracy on the part of feminists or women in general to emasculate men to the point of irrelevancy.
I would ask simply, why are some of you so threatened/frightened of a strong, smart woman? Seriously, this is a fantasy game.
