This announcment means that our feedback is worthless. We have wasted our valuable time here. Fire UBI!
Why is that worthless ?
You only have 2 already shown factions and there is still time and ways to improve things we want.
.. hopefully :)
We have 4 already shown faction.
@Wo0olfy: Go through the "best posts" of the past articles. I have no time to explain it to you now. It's a long story.
This sucks too much to be bought.
I.m not sure if the reply posted .. but i.ll summarize
- It.s not that hard to understand; I know there are 4 factions revealed , but I was reffering to BETA having only 2 from what we already discussed.
I.m sure skillwhell and warcires will be polished.
Ubi are you going to ignore the opinion of more than 200 die-hard fans?
We only want the best for this game and the franchise.
At least they are good at pretending to listen in contrast to Bioware that pissed on their hardcore PC fans with Dragon Age Inquisition and didn't even acknowledge our existence after they've created the thread PC community concerns.
Gamers, cheap whiney and conservative know it alls.
^^ New kid gamers. buys shit as long as it's in a shiny package, and doesn't require too much brain power of course.
This is disrespectful.
This is Ubi ;)
That happens, when companies like Ubi are interested just in money :/ when priority is money, you can't hope nothing spectacular.
a bad taste in mouth, a posioned dagger from backs of us.
Well, money was the demise of 3DO, which was linked to NWC. Nothing much that can be done about that.
this action from the devs turned my flesh to bones, and i ripped my eyes from my sockets with unbelieve in what i've seen. then the anger came and my eyesockets began to glow with the magic of old.
join the the fight, join the revolution, i am sandro!
JOIN THE SANDRO REVOLUTION!
WEAR HIS AVATAR AS A SIGN OF DISCOMFORT AND DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE CURRENT STATE OF THE GAME
HEROES OF MIGHT AND MAGIC NEEDS YOU!
ALL HAIL SANDRO!
With the current game mechanics and the broken "SkillWheel"? NO THANK YOU.
They don't heard us when we complaining about the skillwheel or the bad townscreen OR even if they heard they did nothing. After that how they can expect that we buy such a bad game, even if it has some nice stuff.
Aye, I agree.
I hate DLC, I hate modern game industry attitude of getting extra stuff with +x*money edition and I hate ubi is using it for Heroes. I know it's a trend now but lol. Ingame stuff for extra money is crap. Add some soundtrack or extra game (let it be H3HD) or whatever. But giving extra campaign only in 199.99 dollars edition is a bullshit.
(just my opinion)
Trust me, it's not just your opinion...
How about a day 1 dlc with some extra spider retextures and overpowered artifacts?
For only 499,99 you will get a CD of Erwan doing spider impressions! And if you pre-order now, not only you get a Spiderpolis snowglobe, but a plaquette signed by the members of the Spider Cult!
We want datadisc, but no dlcs, too short and expensive.
Fix the skill system
Make a real skillwheel
Add more spells per magic school / reduce number of schools
Give creatures diverse abilities and spellbooks
Give heroes useful and unique specializations
Get rid of level cap
Replace Hall of Heroes with Tavern (both name and mechanics)
Add ammo cart
I may even buy this :)
That means, you won't buy it.
Umm.. yeah that about sums it up.
Just pointing out everything that is wrong with game at this point :3 Quite a lot it seems
While I agree with you 100%, Chiasa, on what needs to be fixed, I still plan to purchase Heroes VII. For me, Heroes has always been a great series (with the exception of Heroes IV), and if nothing else I enjoy Heroes VI for the overall experience. In my mind, Heroes VII already represents a huge improvement over VI, just not near what I'd like it to be. The skill wheel, hero development, and skill book reforms are sorely needed, but our feedback in the Beta can help to force the issue.
Aye aye, getting rid of the level cap
And there are many other things that should be changed, like improving the existing game mechanics. But that may be too much to ask now.
So is this the only way to get access to beta? Will there be demo to try the game at some point?
I'm sorry, but there is no way in hell I would pre-order h7 without trying it first. I already pre-ordered h6 collectors edition and this is not a mistake I would do again after the last experience and for what I know about this h6 v2.0 game so far.
Same here, I pre-order H6 collectors edition... and well, played the game for about a week hoping it's not as bad as it seems :f
Well it probably is going to be available one way or the other. And Ubi wont be able to stop it. Or maybe there will be so little interest that they wont even do "that" (i think if i say it my post will be deleted, but i think you will know what i mean).
People are not that dumb, we learned our lesson with H6, it's not going to happen again Ubisoft.
They are not even trying to cover their greed with these actions.
It's obviously a closed beta. I bet that there will be an open beta as well.
Unlikely. There wasn't one for Heroes VI, which also had beta-access as a preorder bonus. This isn't meant as a beta to find bugs, it's an incentive to buy the game.
I don't think so. The german gaming-exhibition "GamesCom" is coming mid august. I would really wonder, if they won't give away some beta-codes by that occasion.
I won't imply just greed in every step, ubi does or does not.
Nice, we get heroes 6 with the pre-order, sadly they forgot to add heroes 7.
Lol, you got my laugh. Sadly that is not joke, but true...
...I don't trust Erwan's smile.
He prepared for it. I'm sure.
@agar6, i've placed it into Lord Erwan's thread on HC :D
@agar6 - That was awesome. YOUR MEME IS MINE.
JVC did much more... in his garage.
All our complaining is worth nothing if most of people will preorder this game anyway. It would only prove that people here on this council are not representative set of all heroes fans.
Let's see how popular it will be ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Additionally it would encourage this kind of games in the future ... can they really do whatever they want and ignore all the feedback? We will soon find out. If in few weeks there will be anouncement that skillwheel will be completely redesigned we can pretty much say that their sales didnt go as they expected.
Yep, the true majority will now buy it and happily test it. And won't give a sh*t about the noobwheel or other issues.
If people don't enjoy what they get, they will be more disappointed than we are. This will be the end of UBI.
Erwan's spiders have taken control of minds of some people, they control the nervous influxes with their tiny spiky spidery legs
Black Hole Entertainment failure is the effect of their policy. Are they trying to do the same now? After H5 success, people were more willing to buy H6. Now the situation is different.
That would suck. Heroes is one of my last refuges of good games and is almost gone. I don't need my few remaining ones to disappear due to this becoming an effective technique.
@ merenefere1282 : they might enjoy it. They are kids. They are adaptible. Games are for kids. I am not kid any more and I value my time too much to spend it with some game I dont like. Whole problem of old fans is maybe that .. you know ... they are too old. My expectations might be simply too much. Kids dont really care ... If they wont like it they will just start playing other game, it is not their money that is spent as most likely parents would pay for those.
The fact they are making a game for kids does not mean that games are meant for kids.
Most kids will crack a game, so...
Well it certaily seems to be easier to make game for kids than to please wider audience. But sure .. there are games for 18+ containing some corny stuff which in fact are also played mostly by teenagers :). I am just speculating ... trying to understand ubi point of view which is quite a mystery for me.
I'm probably what one would consider a kid since I'm not in college yet and I expect more from a heroes game than this.
Heck, I'd be happy to let the graphics slide. I play Master of Magic and Ultima for crying out loud since they have good gameplay. Not to mention Master of Orion 1 + 2.
@ Niwroc : you are already too old :) by kids I ment something LightAvatar age 10-15.
People raised on games, the so called gamers will be gamers forever.
By the way, were there any kids invited to the fan day?
I don't think so. I only saw adults in the pictures from it. Meaning, arguably, that's who they are trying to target.
LET ME JOIN YOU. i had enough shitty attitudes. no pre-order!
i alway's been calm, and even defending UBI, saying everything would turn out okay, that they will listen to us... but now i must take back those words... its gone to far...
i'm joining the resistance!
Seriously? We asked for a community page mounths ago,If i recall it correctly,you said "soon".
And now that everyone complains about the skillmess you've made and all who cares are f**ked up you open the shop page... -.-
I don't even know what to say for this...seriously,this whole situation is it's own caricature! I couldn't even come up with a better one...
(sorry for the rough feedback but THIS IS what we think)
Ubisoft only cares about money.
They are butchering this game.
30 years of respect is being ruined like this.
DO NOT PRE-ORDER
Stop pro ordering games, the chance of the game working on lunch it close to zero.
So do not pre order and wait until you have seen some reviews.
I love heroes series.Do u know what it means?That I willbuy it even it is the worst failure gme of the 21 century!
Game is a close copy to heroes 6. But it has to be a lot a exact copy for mew not to play it in the end
Go ahead, support the ones ruining the Might and Magic name.
It's pretty easy to see who the true fans of the series are...
I'm not saying that you should not bay it, i'm saying you should not Pre order it. there is a difference
yes but if I told u beta was rubbish u cant make a judgemnt to get it on that cos u may love the game. its like some people love heroes 6 and a lot hate it
LightAvatarX > It's your money to waste, if you want to reward them for making a bad game, go ahead ...
Do you know what youtube is, it is this great-ish service where you can see people play the game, and make you decision on what you see.
I mhad not thought that about you tube...it is a good idea...
I can't think of any games that do work on lunch. In fact I remember a few that tasted rather awful.
Let people do what they like with it. How will there be any youtube videos of the game unless someone out there plays it before you? People have a right to enjoy the game.
Well more often then not game company will give free copies to reviews who then will put op videos on YouTube. And yes people are allowed to do as they please, but i also have the right to tell them not to do this.
Nothing to add to this. Your simply shitting on your community and still try to squeeze as much money as possible out of everyone.
Im done with it ... why should i even spend one dollar if i know that the heroes games i have at home are thousand times better (i simply have to conclude this by the few information you´ve made). Have fun with some kids in the beta (this will rly carry the game on a new level)
Yeah, a level where you can just press "Auto" and have the AI win the whole game for you.
There will be buttons to press anything?! Pls no, Not that much freedom for the players XD
*RIP edit button btw
not even a one singel dev answering to us.
you dont deserve this community, you dont deserve to develope this game. why i have to get along and pay money to you? please drop the rights for heroes to anpther company. i really, and i mean it, i really dont like you.
you have no respect!
yes im sure another company would listen to there fans at least. They listen game is great they change it (even the slightest thing) they muck it all up
Skill system for example
Don't you think, that they deserve to be at home by now?
Or do you really expect the to answer to the community at this hour?
If yes something is wrong with you?
I think it may be time zone differences. Like it's still Mid-afternoon here.
They listen more to the community than most other devs.
They even had us vote for the games content.
Not many devs do that (if any at all)!
And they are even changing the design of some units after we demanded it!
Be more grateful!
i asked my laptop question 12 hours ago. they didnt give a single fuck.
Then wait a few days longer + do you really think that they can answer everyone?
And they have to work on this game as well of course ;)
I'd like to point out that the changes were only after massive fan uprisings and most votes were insignificant like TS backgrounds and collectors edition votes while ending up putting everything in anyway. Only the Faction votes can be said to have really mattered.
Also, out of the 3 forums I'm on this is the one where the devs respond to things the least and the fan base is the most in the dark about, well, everything.
they didnt answered anything.
we are asking questions, giving advise on fixing things, theorycrafting on gameplay, telling what we dont like... i can make this longer. and its been MONTHS. they treat us like SHIT.
i understand you are new here, but dont defend them to me. i did that part a while ago, they dont deserve it.
and laptop issue is from h6 times, im talking about YEARS. not only my problem!
i have every right to go insane.
I agree ubi need 1-2 devs that are replying at all opening time to the fans I mean how do we know if our system will run the game we arnt all PC people that know the stuff but they should
Well I'm not new at all, I'm here since Gamescom last year ;)
But of course I respect your opinion.
But mine is still optimistic and I'm still looking forward to this game, I hope you can respect my opinion as well.
While I agree that it would be nice if there were a moderator/representative here to answer questions (laptop, Steam, etc) the vitriol in here over what amounts to partial information is a bit much. More than a bit actually.
thing is tho the skill system should of been changed a long time ago. I mean as soon as we heard about it was negativity about it and its only got worse
@Cleglaw , they have a holiday, a lot of orders ,"the subscriber is unavailable" ))
You know Blizzard does listen to thier fans on thier forums. The only problem is they can't listen to everyone, so there is always a group of players that can't and wont be satisfied. The same with the Heroes franchise that they can't and wont be able to satisfy everyone. But this attitude they have now is almost the same as when they had all these problems with H6 and gave up the support for it.
We need a hero, a true hero, not a false figure that mumbles about spiders all day. We need the one that raised this game from nothing to the heights of glory. We need the only person capable of following the true heroic spirit. Now it's time for his heroic return! Jon Van Caneghem, the true succesor, please take the wheel on more time, the creator shall return to his creation. And Ubi, please show that you care about us and bring this hero back on the battlefield!
JVC refused. He works in Electronic Arts for now.
Not certain if he would even work with these people. May remind him of unfair deals with 3DO...
JVC said he would like to work on another heroes games.
But I feel he may want to hire his own team rather than Ubisoft's...
Of course, but we can make the second blog-campaign after and if he returns
Well we could always star something like a donation and buy the Heroes franchise from Ubi and give it to someone who truly knows what it is doing.
These people are just a bunch of impostors lol, even the game itself is a fraud, it has no legacy and is not Heroes 7,
Ubi, get rid of Erewhon Le Brettonia, ask the actual creator of the Might and Magic series to come back and turn this ****show around, and if he refuses, just stop this endless carnival of stupid before you embarrass us all even further (yes, anything's possible) lol
you have my full support on this matter! Jon Van Caneghem!
Jon made this game a classic, he is the right guy to save it.
Personally, I feel like JVC should get involved with gameplay.
Unlike most, I have no qualms about the lore.
All who are disappointed with the skill system, Beta content, and way to access the beta, please show your support by changing avatar to Sandro, change title to 'the furious' and up voting this post and any similar posts!
@Chiasa, #ShowUsRespect. Scroll down a bit. And join us.
@Chiasa Show Us Respect
Ah, thanks :D
Yes, just think how fake they are!!!
SlumbrousShip5 it is necessary to make an avatar Sandro?
propose to change the avatar on Aguirre!!!
oh I missed those goochy goochy spideys
@Necromancer1981: Please stop that bullshit. Please we want the best for you and the game.
This is gonna be big guys :D
All hail Sandro!
I've changed back, now this post look ridiculous!!
You kill the game and most of the fans with it. I think our last task in this community to warned everybody about this H6 copy.
Spiders at Arms!
It's sad, but it looks like that, especially that silence about all problems which game had...
Write on the CD boxes: WITHOUT THE RECOMEND OF THE SHADOW COUNCIL!
Yeah, you should warn people, haha.
