If people want to continue to show their support for Ubisoft, by all means go nuts. But don't try to lecture other fans about why they should be happy and thankful. It's becoming quite clear that you do not understand the angst felt by fans one bit.

Much appreciated!

looks very fake. male druid is nearly exactly same wth h5 one, female hero looks like she jumped from a night club or something, which was another h5 art thing, in total i didnt even liked those first ones.

the picture that from wizards of the coast is what i liked most. for me a druid, a true nature related unit-hero should look like that in art style.

other ones are ripp of from unnecesarry sexy low quality warcrafty styles.
what i like from h7 is, it has good taste in art, just like h3.

29

logical.dust 
May 27, 2015 22:08:27

I have one question to UBI: Is there any chance that management and game leads will be changed? From organisational point of view H6 was total management failure and I dont want to be bad, but what happened on monday was another fiasco. Not to mention that there is absolutely no vision about future of this game (as future expansions are not even confirmed) and game direction is also way too off. Whole budget planing seems out of place. I think this game deserves better "head of the party".

9
storm_sword 
May 28, 2015 01:47:07

This I can support at least to some extent. There is still the chance to change the pre-selected skills which will be the doom of this game and especially it's longevity. If they do that I don't have too many complaints for the time being.

25
logical.dust 
May 28, 2015 02:10:26

Well I promised myself to not get into arguing about game content itself as that is lost case, but from ocasions like this it can be seen the very low profesionality of game leaders and whole management that sort of also indeed descends to game content. Look on projects like WoG or H5.5, sure fan made - but why despite obsolete graphics I like them more than what is going on over here? Vision of H7 creators doesnt go beyond first day of game release. HOMM franchise deserves better.

9
storm_sword 
May 28, 2015 02:15:04

Haven't checked the wog or tried the H5.5 but the H5.5 and the hota for H3 are much better on idea level. Installed the hota and have played it a bit, really good. Purely on that basis I anticipate being playing the H5.5 some time in the future instead of H7.

What is WoG?

25
logical.dust 
May 28, 2015 02:27:40

WoG (wake of gods) is fan made mod for H3 whose enhancement list is endless. Since it is in H3 engine it is sort of obsolete graphically. I dont know if hota already contains wog enhancements (in wog there is stuff like stack experience and battle commanders (hero in battlefiend)) - havent played H3 recently. But overall direction is certainly better as in H7.

9
storm_sword 
May 28, 2015 02:31:47

I haven't noticed stack experience or hero on battlefield. It's on the traditional Heroes basis. Really good in it from the few stints I've had with it. The classic skill system and magics and all have their advantages. The game remains so simple to create and to learn and you can have a good game with basically any people in no time. Straight forward and fun.

9
storm_sword 
May 28, 2015 02:33:41

Though I prefer the H5 style skill system, the abilities inside skills and the factionalized abilities inside the skills. More point to the fact of having different classes of heroes inside the game.

25
logical.dust 
May 28, 2015 02:38:56

One of many enhancements in wog is actuall skill "rebalance" making usefull even most unwanted skills. You can check :
- http://www.celestialheavens.com/h3maparchives/wog/wogfeatures.html

9
storm_sword 
May 28, 2015 02:40:33

Whether it is a wheel or a random one (with weighed probabilities having different options for different hero classes on level ups) I don't really mind. The wheel is logical now that I finally got it few weeks ago (just keeps on turning), the random one is a bit more difficult to create unorthodox heroes. The latter would support this current lore perfectly.

Personally I don't have a real preference but I'm slightly biased over the latter.

9
storm_sword 
May 28, 2015 02:43:11

The rebalance is a good one since there are/were few weaker ones. Offence > Armorer for example. And I wouldn't go for evil eye or mysticism if they wouldn't come from a hut.

9
storm_sword 
May 28, 2015 03:01:31

...I think the rebalance means something else in this case...

anyway, nice to know one more, thanks logic. I have to pour myself on these someday as I know I can do plenty for these on the code side, I'm just a bit reluctant to go programming anymore without a salary.

@ bitmaid : well probably not, but the bug is planted. Gives them something to think about (if they even read this blog). Anyway unless someone from their leads doesnt resign on their function I guess not much will change.which is rather sad - there should be some controll mechanism even on management level. I wonder what would be required for ubi to actually make personal changes in theirs management. If H7 will not be success they will just drop whole fanchise instead of responsible people...

I've seen a lot of misguided complaints thrown towards Ubi so little reminder- if you have something to say about Ubi post it on their forum. This article has nothing to do with them- Limbic found heavy bugs and has to fix them. Thus we have a delay.
Posting these here makes finding important questions harder and slows development down.
Also have a nice day!

17
GrayMatters Der Prächtige
May 28, 2015 16:16:07

So you are saying the publisher of the game and owner of the franchise is not the one in charge of media relation, selling and publicity? As far as I understand, it is not Limbic who decide if there is a "beta", the release date of the "beta" or final game, or managing the pre-orders

I highly doubt Limbic decides alone what and when things are disclosed on this web site. And of course posting here doesn't slow the development, why would it? Dev are coding/debugging, not moderatinis siteg th

30
EnergyW Der Hacker
May 28, 2015 18:09:32

I will blame them because they are Limbic's "boss" company. In other words, they are the ones that made the limit of two weeks, two factions etc. for the beta in the first place.

14
Zatrakus95 Der Ritterliche
May 28, 2015 18:29:42

@GrayMatters: If didn't know that Limbic decides when beta starts and 2 weekend
where declared as time of first phase of beta. Also devs does not receive important questions and suggestions when they are hard to found by mods. Moreover try to think like Ubi- how much time and money do you give for sequel of failed product with unpredictable fan base? Not too much just enough for it to be well done but not too much so there is no pressure or space for risky moves.

@Energy: There are only 2 factions really done by now: Necro reworked partially, Stronghold needs some basic tweeks as it's the most fresh one, Dungeon and Sylvan are currently at work. Thus so little content which impacts time of first beta phase. There is no need for more than 2 weeks of testing. No matter what you think about pre-orders issue it's still beta testing not demo- game is still rather far from completion. Major bugs are killed now lesser are for "civilians".

30
EnergyW Der Hacker
May 28, 2015 19:00:40

Well, you forget that some have pre-ordered just to play beta. Delays may happen, but it is just a short beta, it is not even the final product, yet they are still struggling to fix these bugs.
And beta also gives the player what he can expect in the final game. Even if he/she already pre-ordered..
Besides, I don't see how can't there be any more factions, since in the Haven video (which was made, but was discarded) you can see Stronghold hero, so I doubt they can't add the two factions as well.

В 5 было то, чего не было до этого ни в одной части игры (и это безусловно выделяет ее на общем фоне): 3D графика (даже в замках), переработанные фракции, новый игровой мир, сосем иное впечатление от игры в целом. Помню когда первый раз игру включила - была в неописуемом восторге! А с 7 точно такого уже не будет, ибо ничего принципиально нового мы тут не увидим(( поэтому и требования к игре строже.
