There's something wierd going on lately with all this femaling units. It's 7th part of Heroes saga, and there's never been a problem with it, and all the sudden we get druid females(!), djinn and now Gargoyle. So what's next? Titan? Ogre? Lich?
I've never looked up onto unit, what sex is it, but I gotta say it's strange to go from one into another. I can understand dijin as they used to be female upgraded unit, but Gargoyle? Noo, but to make druid a femal that's jst silly!

Guys, druid don't need to be a female. It was just an art from the old M&M titles. I suppose, it was from Heroes V, they printed it on one guidance about creatures. Druid's sex is still unknown. But I'd rather see male too. Because he would look awesome! ;D

1. Druids are a class of educated Iron Age Celts. Can be male or female. Druid females have been done before, nothing new.
2. Djinn can be depicted as literally anything.
3. Gargoyles are statues. Statues can be anything.
4. Titans are a mythical race, can be male or female.
5. Who honestly cares about ogres gender?
6. Lich is a decaying copse/skeleton. The one in 5 was wearing a metal hoop dress implying its female, pretty much all other liches look neutral.

Why the hell would you care what gender they are, so long as they look good. Having the Djinn male in H5 didn't do it any favours, it looked like garbage. Reasonably minded people don't even look at what gender it is. It is only sexists and feminists that look at gender. I couldn't give a flying firetruck about what gender they are so long as they look good.

The Djinn art work on the Academy page looks better than the DoC version. It looks more like a titan or blue human than it does a djinn. And the H5 version? What the hell was that? I wouldn't say it's the best artwork of all creatures, but it's the best djinn artwork. It's the only one that actually looks like what it's suppose to be.

Besides, they might do what they did with H3 genies and master genies.

"druids has always been male in the lore and djinns has always been male. "

Actually in the first Heroes game they had a 'wise woman of the woods' look. In the second game they were too ambiguous to say one way or the other. Third and fourth games they were a class of hero (both male and female), I'm fairly sure druid was a Sylvan hero type in V too but I honestly can't remember. It has NEVER been male only and thus it really doesn't matter what gender it will be.

I agree with Jeremiah with the djinns. I think h5 djinns were better than h7 seen so far. To me h5 djinns were the best so far(I liked that they didn't go just for classic look, but gave their own take on it) followed by h3&h4 fairly even, both better than h7 djinn. I believe they'll work on the djinn though, but the current one is pretty bad. I do like the DoC picture of djinn better, but neither seem anything special to me.

PS Nice druid picture RRick btw (I'm ok with female druid though).

I was never fascinated by this unit, but here it is nice and it fits well with the other two. So for now I`m very pleased by what I see =) Keep it up!

Also, i think golems should be stronger than avarage core units, this can be balanced by making them more expansive and/or decreasing their weekly growth. Let me explain why: golems are constructs made of stone we all agree on that now think golem vs sentinal, poking a stone construct with a spear is a very unefficent way to destroy it try tearing down a wall with a pointy stick and you'll understand what i'm talking about. Therefore golems need to be stronger and more expansive to balance it.

I doubt golem will be much different from sentinel for example. Sure it can have lower growth and higher stat, but in weekly power it will most likely be same level just like units were in h6.(I really hate the crappy 3-tier system)

@hierophant you will pick 1 champion. To build them both you need 2 towns or destroy/rebuild part of your town to choose another champion.

Well of course being made out of stone is not very protective if you are against a dragon or a cyclops but it is or at least it should be protective if your are against regular humans with spears.Btw, my argument about enchanted spears was just a little joke, no need to take it very seriously but i still think haven-not a faction known for its enchanting abilities is able to produce so many enchanted spears, still we are talking about a fictional game so everything can happen :)

Personal point of view, one champion unit for rush and two for a long game on huge maps ^^;.. I'm actually questioning if there's enough room for all the units to be on the battlefield!! Those units take at most 10 unit areas for each row..But a huge battlefield means small creatures as the camera will be too far!!

Niwroc The Ancient
November 17, 2014 22:31:49

I agree, based on the picture of the golem, it looks like they should be either a large one square unit or a 4 square one and should be midway between core and elite in power and growth. They should also be very slow like in 5 but also pack a punch and be able to take a good number of blows. In my mind, their job should be to block an area and make sure the ranged units never get seriously threatened.

Academy is similar in lineup to HoMM 3 and HoMM 5, not since cause in MoMM 4 it was different and in M&M: Heroes 6 there was no Academy at all so return of this faction in her old shape is well welcomed

And as discussions have proven, many people hate any changes and some want them. It is impossible to satisfy everyone

Why do you people even care what gender the units are (or resemble) - it doesn't change anything but their appearance. If suddenly medusa or dryad or any other traditionally female creature was to become male I wouldn't care, as long as it would look good. Nobody's arguing about gender of dragons, hydras or the undead, and yet they could be all male, or all female or whatever and it doesn't change a damn thing.
I can't possibly comprehend what kind of paranoia makes people so obsessed about it.

22
JeremiahEmo The Destroyer
November 18, 2014 13:34:45

well, the thing is, Chiasa, there are certain look-and-feel benefits you get from having a male or female creature. For instance Titans. They're suppose to display power, dominance and massive. A female titan could never deliver that. That is why Titans should always be male. Medusas, well, it would be awkward to have a male Medusa. It would be like having a female Thor. Oh wait, the feminists destroyed that already. Anyway, if the creature should display elegance or beauty, it should be female.

28
Chiasa The Mad
November 18, 2014 13:37:19

Just to be clear, I'm not expressing my desire to turn aforementioned creatures male, just indifference about this particular aspect of their design.

Says who? They can make Orc women look intimidating, they can make dwarf women be intimidating, and they can do the exact same for a female titan, if they chose. Just because your petty mind can not accept it doesn't mean it can't happen.

Besides, pretty sure titans don't have genders.

"I wouldn't care, as long as it would look good" and that´s the problem. Most of the female units in Heroes games are displayed as beautiful and innocent. And some units should look more "evil". I dont care about units like sword(wo)man, priestess, archer etc. But if they make the Druids female, it won´t be a Druid anymore, but just another beauty woman. The only cool female units in Heroes game was the Shadow Matriarch :P

You seem to be interpreting the word 'good' to mean beautiful. Which is wrong. To look good, it needs to be 'good' in the way it is meant to be. If it's a badass unit and it looks badass whether it's a male or female, then it would look good.

So to say, Im all okay with female units to be the part of the army AS LONG AS ALL OF THEM DOESN´T LOOK THE SAME. The female units shown so far are there just to join the beauty contest ( except the Justicar which is wearing a helm ! (Y). And that´s the only reason I´m against more female units. If they will make them differ from each other, and make some of them look more agressave ( for ex. the Sucubbus which was just another pretty woman in H6 ), I have no problem with female units.

Yup, I when i said "look good" I didn't mean beautiful, I meant fitting to their role and faction. Like H6 centaurs, I wouldn't call them pretty, but they were awesome, same for H5 minotaurs, or druids. I don't expect units to be beautiful, regardless of their gender, just their looks to match their faction, stats etc

@KhanOfSlaughter
If they wanted to? Man, that's where you are wrong. Ubi or Limbic can make a female Orc that displays power but the problem is that will it stir the imagination of their audience? Will it be well-received by their audience?
The thing is, our "petty little minds" have standards. The powerful Orc female thing is a risk w low % of success.

And also, we're not arguing whether Titans are biologically male or female here. We all know that. It's the look and feel we're talking about.

Yeah it will because the vast majority of people aren't narrow-minded sexists.

female Druids could never serve the role of Druids. We need to have male Druids, period. We already have 3 female units in Sylvan: Pixies, Dryads and Moon Does. Yes, it's one of the reasons why I voted for Sylvan's Fury. I figured that since there are too many naturally female units, they won't feminize the three best creatures of Sylvan: Blade Dancers, Hunters and Druids.

Well I don't care whether they're female or male. The devs will make it fill the role it's suppose to no matter what gender. Get over it.

I wouldn't call these people sexist just because they differ from your opinion. The idea is based on the look and feel which isn't offensive at all. The only people offended by it are the ultra sensitive-type, and that's not the opinion-maker's problem.

listen to KhanOfSlaughter devs! There are always two sides to the equation. One side wants male Druids, the other doesn't care if they're male or female. Apparently, you can make both sides happy by making Druids male.
So, I guess easy decision for you guys. ^_^

@JeremiahEmo: "female Druids could never serve the role of Druids" And I'm sure you have a good argument for this, right? Because for now you reasoning is blatantly sexist withou any logic in it.
"I wouldn't call these people sexist just because they differ from your opinion" they are completely free to have a different opinion, but this don't make them less sexist.

@arcanus
I do have an argument. It's that Druids has always been male in the lore. And no, not Heroes history. I'm talking about the world lore.

Also, I've always thought of sexism as negative stereotype or prejudice. My opinion of females not being good druids, well, already been explained but still. There are creatures that are good as male (druids, titans, etc) and there are creatures good as female (dryads, pixies, etc). If you're offended by that then you're just ultra sensitive.

"I do have an argument. It's that Druids has always been male in the lore"

Lets look at the description for druids in 5...

"The druids are the priests of Sylanna, Elemental Dragon of Earth and living embodiment of Nature. As such they are granted control over the magic of the elements, which they call upon in times of peril."
It says priests, priests doesn't necessarily mean 'only male' as it can be used to refer to priests and priestesses as a collective. Can you reference where this is said?

@JeremiahEmo: We already have female knights, and in H5 there was one female hero(Dirael) who was specifically stated to be a druid, Ashan factions can be based on Historical societies, but at the same time they are different since they belong to a different world. "world lore" doesn't matter here , this is Ashan and in its lore we already have female druids, your argument is invalid. And I'm not "ultra sensitive" this arguments is just too idiotic, maybe I had too much faith in humanity.

Cabirs are nice, but on gameplay they looked too big. Will they stay this way?

I admit they look size of a human and larger, I admit maybe he "could" be smaller.
