I remember when they said requirements would be much lower.
I remember when they said h7 would have the best features of the series.
I remember when they said ai turns would be faster.
I remember when they said ai has been improved.
I remember when they said townscreens would be improved.
I remember when they said there wouldn't be so much bugs.
I remember when they said they needn't delay the game.
I remember it is Heroes's 20th anniversay and many lies have been said.
haha and don't forget they've promised that it will be "BACK TO THE ROOTS", fella... xD
Yeah, another lie in the 20th anniversary :(
I can precisely tell, you aren't sick with a sclerosis:-)
"Total Recall " =D
1. H7 does have the best features of the series and it is an extremely subjective topic as to which features are included.
2. The AI is both faster and smarter since CB2.
"1. H7 does have the best features of the series and it is an extremely subjective topic as to which features are included. "
1.- Yes... and not. In this case: specs would be much better, 7 magic schools which no diversity has no sense, creatures are not ver different among them having same abilities, and so on. In other cases, yes, it is more subjective, but in this case it is clear that it could be better.
"2. The AI is both faster and smarter since CB2."
2.- Eh... no. I have seen people with a pc gaming and the ai is slow and stupid, and the most of the user reviews say that. I know other cases that it is faster, but it seems it is not normal among the players.
Unable to play a game because of bugs can be annoying I admit but to be fair:
- I don't recall them raising the requirements.
- AI turns got faster, have you played the Beta?
- Some people do not have any bugs (I haven't had a single crash or recognizable bug in around 12h playing). In the beta I had lots of crashs (like every 30min)!
- Townscreens (the built menu) has been improved.
- Yes they did say about lower requirements for vanilla.
- The betalpha 2 had actually extremely slow AI ON PURPOSE (they said it themselves).
- Some people don't identify bugs, hence people claiming h6 is now bug free LMAO
- Townscreens still look like crap, IMHO
I don´t care about townscreens much, I think they are OK. There are 100+ problems I am interested more (excluding bugs). Of course, no townscreens would make me angry...
I don´t want you to understand me wrong, these townscreens could be better, but I think there are many graphics, gameplay and technical problems and missing features that townscreens are not so important.
Townscreen are the less important problem right now. But they said they would improve it and... it didn't happen. They have changed the haven one a bit but only that.
"Basically, our goal is to take the best out of the previous Heroes titles and build Heroes VII from there. Of course we're also bringing in new features or new ideas without compromising the spirit of Heroes, such as more interactions on the Adventure Map allowing more strategies. For now we won't delve too much into the details but we have brought in hundreds of small improvements which will help to perfect the formula." - MMH7 Team, August 2014.
Then: "... hundreds of small improvements..."
Now: "... should provide over 120+ fixes ..."
There you go. ^^
Remember remember, the fifth of November...
But phoenix is not in the game as far as I know :)
I would be satissfied with hundreds of small improvements similar to previous games: starting bonuses, better scaling...
Get the basics right first before you try to "perfect the formula".
"We've taken all the best of a series of " heroes " - said Ubisoft and cunningly deceived ((
How to report? Seriously?
First you release unfinished and completely untested game (there are still the same bugs that we pointed at during Beta1 and 2). And now you teach us how to report bugs in order to make your work easier?
How about digging through forums and boards in search of a mentioned bugs by yourself, Ubi? How about you hire some more testers who will play this game and report bugs for you? Please.. Don't teach us how to do your job. Otherwise I will ask to be paid.
Galaad, the most efficient way to share your feedback for the game is a customer support.
By the looks of it, even the Customer Support will need a Support.
Probably most of the budget was intended for Support.
I know, I was just supporting your post by linking ongoing stickied thread of issues from HC.
I know, Galadd. I meant that we already doing this work for them. Gathering all bugs in one thread. The team of damned beta-testers...
@Sussugamon - Pandaaa you are back ^_^
Yup, even if for a short time. ^^
Don't you dare to tell us how to "share constructive feedback" when we've been doing that for years but "you know better".
"you know better". XD LoL
People should know that if they are dismissive of others because of such statements, like (your comment is subjective), then I don't see why would the devs' opinion be any more objective.
Here is "constructive feedback" haha
Any programmers, and venture capitalists need to "construct" a crowdfunding venture to petitions other developers, programmers and the like to rebrand the entire series into a stable and pleasurable series it once was.
"Heroes of Find and Grab It"
Right, starting crowdfunding.
Once upon a time, Heroes of Might and Magic was a glorious franchise.
Its incredible formula and magical universe made it the greatest TBS ever, and now we have to suffer from these pale copies UbiSoft is delivering us.
After the disastrous MMH6 for its numerous heresies, we get MMH7, which I consider to be the greatest fraud in the series’s history.
In my eyes, MMH7 fails in numerous aspects, the first one being a downgrade compared to any other homm title. Uninspiring immersion straightly copied pasted from the previous entry along horrible townscreens and UI in general, Ashan lore at its most absurdity, and not least gameplay aspects.
First of all, the game is lacking many many things which are I think considered to be crucial to the series such as
Impact of randomness, mainly for the hero leveling up with its fallacious random option, this can’t be a “bonus”, this is a crucial core of what made these games incredibly fun, and it lacks also in the adventure map with no neutral spawns, almost non-existent creatures banks, oh but we get a full week where shooters can’t shoot, awesome isn’t it.
Town development is a complete disaster, everything feels forced and you lack early game variety. In the past none of these were fixed on dumb rails one has to follow, you had to pick for yourself, and it was definitely richer.
how lovely your avatar, Gala ))
Creatures abilities and hero specializations, as said countless times, are uninspiring and boring, everything seems to be tied with that obscure governor feature from h4, and its deep spell system was being put aside because 7 schools of Ashan, interfering with the skill system.
In fact the list is so long I know I’m missing a lot, but as a whole, I clearly do not recognize this game as a worthy sequel, which definitely not received the praise it deserves for the MM brand’s 20th anniversary, and I know previous games can deliver me a better, closer to its spirit experience than this failure.
Thank you Mirash )
galaad and mirash? u 2 start new game or what?
johnvanmichael , We are like the phoenix , dies and is reborn from the ashes ,,,,
I consider H6 worse than H7. H7 has many flaw points, but H6 had even more.
You know Stormhelico, I'm not even sure which is better between h6 or h7, h6 for its heresy, or h7 for its heresy. What I truly think is any game daring to call themselves Heroes but with the label "MMH" instead of "HMM" are extremely offensive to what this series are all about and why the classic games are still being played after over a decade.
Well, there is no doubt about that.
In any case, we were promised to take the "best" , and we were deceived.
Oh very far from that dear Mirash, very far from that.
Когда 5 вышли кричали что все потеря потерь, вышли 6, боже 5 были просто сказка, теперь вышли 7 и снова не умолкнет слово справедливости и правосудия...Интересно какой вы хотели ли бы видеть игру? а ля 3 герои с новой графикой))
luckily i met jack sparrow , was far from deceived
Это нормально, даже когда сами третьи вышли, орали, что уже не торт. Посмотрим как все выдержит проверку временем)
пока что игра сделана на 50 % посмотрим может что то будут добавлять или исправлять
is that the game is made of 50% , can see that the will add or correct
у меня было немножко ощущение что она обрезанная как -то так ,,,
Чего-нибудь сделают, конешь, потом Юбисофт их банкротнет и пойдет искать следующую мелкую фирмочку для разработки восьмерки)
судя по коротеньким компашкам тут и обрезанному серверу доисторическому , Юби из героев сделают одноразовую бытовую технику ( , ну посмотрим . Миссии в компашке такие короткие и линейные , я за 1 день пробежала 3 карты орков \ даж до 20 уровня не докачала \ (
I like how you star this story of yours Galaad. "Once upon a time" :)
в 5 и 6 я помню зависала месяцы ,,,,\ в 5 из-за интереса , в 6 из-за династии достижений интересных , там сложные условия короч интересно было , тем более кровь \ сопли разные концовки и герои были
And if I were a millionaire..
I would buy the rights of this game and hire for example Galaad, Mirash and Mediczero
and others who have respectful ideas to design the game!
No offence... But these developers seems to be never have played previous games...
Or they had played like Heroes 4 once...
The experience that this Might and Magic Heroes 7 has to offer is nothing compared to Heroes 5!
Basically the marvelous randomness has been teared apart from the game!
That is what makes me very, very VERY mad...
Which one is better disastrous Heroes 6 or this H7..
Well they both are DISASTERS!
Maybe this is a bit better but really far from Heroes 5!
<< Galaad, Mirash and Mediczero >>
interesting would be the negotiating table )))
"interesting would be the negotiating table )))"
True. Those names were first ones that popped up into my mind. :)
Don't take it personally.
I liked the idea, in any case, there is no money, we - not the oligarchs Russian))
I consider H7 worst. Mainly because they had proper chance and feedback enough not to make the mess they did, and yet, here we are.
Congratulations you really deserve a good pat on the back! You actually managed to beat h6 in terms of who gets the WORST reviews & scores! I guess at this point I can only hope that you will do like Final Fantasy 14 did after such catastrophic launch; go back to drawing board, fix and improve the game and launch it in a few years in actually decent condition.
5,5/10 user score
62% negative reviews on steam
PS When you said h7 has "expert AI" you could've just said it's about as awesome as in "Aliens: Colonial Marines"! or smart as a box of rocks!^^
Well to be fair, neither metacritic scores for either game are bad.
And many of Heroes VII reviews are based on the bug problems, not the core game itself.
To be fair, h6 was also suffering from bug problems in reviews, not the core game itself(and it still scored higher). Most of the reviews say that h7 the core game itself is fairly average.
And stuff like bugs, performance problems, horrid AI, etc should've been for most part finished by the time of release. Game was knowingly launched in such bad state, so many problems just wouldn't go unnoticed.
I never trust STEAM reviews anymore. Often you read a negative review from a person that has 300+ hours of playing said "aweful" game on his counter. Likewise there are persons with a playtime of 0.1-0.5 hours that rate a game. Unfortunately there are no rules for reviews on steam.
But that's obvious. You cannot expect people who are not enjoying the game to play it for long, right? I wouldn't play 30 hours of something so shoddy. People will play until their consensus say otherwise, and judge based on that. They are not paid to make impartial reviews based on hopes and what ifs. They PAID for something that's not delivering their expectations. Meanwhile, those who enjoy the game are indeed BOUND to have more time playing than those who are not.
>>The game was highly tested and this for several months by dedicated teams
If you think your fanbase is completely retarded to believe such fulishness........ u might be right apparently lol. Considering the amount of ppl which purchased this product. xD
I wonder which game do they mean? Surely not MMH7.
i believe the AI proves your point there :D
May be the testers have the same intelligence as the AI
Little beautiful spider Tutankhamun agree. ))
The same old story... A routine, really..
Next time.. deliver a game like this, with a label -> ubisoft testing version<- for 50% price. lol.
Actually, Im just kidding don't deliver anything, sell the freaking rights of this poor treated game.
And nobody is eager to do the bug hunting for you. Feedback on the 'game release' topic was written x times before. And yet, this situation is repeating itself..
U back too, violet! :D ヽ(´ー｀)ﾉ
We need some fer more fellas as Kaanzakin and Matoob, I think to gather all old gang xD
very sad, actually ,,,(( \ hi , violetcoffee ! \
Lelz. It is delightful to hear the voices of the old sandro movement, these days. :))
yea...like "we told ya..." :D
Funny how that happened? It took a really bad thing to gather us all again. What are us, then? Saviors?
Hi Violet, what's up :)
lol knew from about half a year, that this game would suck. :D
Wait for 30€ sale, then buy it, hopefully till this time there are some patches out so i dont get bored of it in one single map...
Sometimes i think, that it would be awesome if Heroes V gets some Mods like Skyrim for some fancy grafics, because that part was just great...
I would like a sequel to "Heroes 5" (
Mirash - mosr of us would like a game that is a Heroes V successor.
Yes , Pawek
Mirash, there's the mod Heroes 5.5, it might work as a replacement for now.
I'm sure everyone is thrilled having to go through all that crap after buying a full priced game at release.
Not full priced for me! :D muahahahaha!
UBI STOP BUTCHERING THIS FRANCHISE
SELL IT IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE IT
We need more titles.
THE ITOLDYOUSO PERSON
THE ONE WHO LOST HOPE BUT, HELL, WHY NOT?
THE BROUGHT BACK DUE A DISASTER
THE SCREAMING ONE ON A CHAIR FOR 5 HOURS
More shall come as bugs and crashes are sorted out / created for any bizarre reason.
Ah, and the new trend:
Squeeze that into... #ITYSBYKB. Jesus it sounds like a disease even then.
The titles have a lot of doubles It needs to change it to appropriate the situation.
I think Ubisoft has finally made a game that makes Heroes 6 look not all that bad. Way to go guys :P :/
Qualities of h6 and h7: now h4 doesn't look that bad.
Lebrettonia has succeeded with his evil plan.
He needs to slow down on the namtaru lines he takes every morning.
"Qualities of h6 and h7: now h4 doesn't look that bad."
Yeah, it doesn't.. In fact it is too awful..
They managed to divide something by zero.
H4 is awesome. Boo the haters!
H4 certainly was telling some great stories - I was replaying H$ while waiting for H7. Acceptable feature: the mix of Necropolis/Inferno in one town and the choice between Units.
lol someone actually liked Infernopolis? O_o
Anyway compared to h6 and h7, h4 is a masterpiece, end of story.
This game's finally been released,
most of players are not pleased.
No wonder, it seems to be
rather than game - beta 3.
Limbic guys doing their best
need some experienced guest,
they don't know what they should do,
except that, they are too few.
Ubi may choose: to save this game
or deserve eternal shame.
+1 because it's a poem :P.
I have written some poem before some time too but I don't remember in which article it was. If I find it, I will give the link there :P
Limbic guys doing their best:
It's Ubi's fault
LMAO those comments remind me good old times xD
true, true :D
I'm feeling like a bug/crash myself, conjured from thin air due all this mess after all these months of silence.
Now they looks like you :D
seems like it is a pretty good idea to wait some more months till i risk a look into this "game" .... Hope ubi sells he rights soon... maybe to EA, so we can buy for every faktion :D
EA, which messed so greatly with Sim City. I remember reading everywhere people asking for bigger maps and offline gameplay. Before they simply HAD to start spamming and raging like the devil.
Most encountered creatures in MMH7: Bugs.
Gotta catch 'em all!
Some people are getting paid for catching bugs, here people are literally paying themselves for doing the job. Go slavery.
>> Gotta catch 'em all!
My pokeballs are ready or should I call them erwanballs lol

Labeling it until people record by heart. \o/
The AI has been tested? Come on... it's broken... unfinished... rushed... whatever...
At least we don't have to worry about Ubisoft making an intelligent A.I. :D
