I am a bit disappoint, not bacesue of the concepts but rather the quantity of the news (quality is ok)

As far as I remember, it was said that this week there will be plenty of news and Academy update (this I do not consider as such)

I am happy to see all those discussions, they are funny, some comments are really interesting... and what can we do more? There is nth to comment more in the game, some pictures that are only models and can change.

I want a forum! that would provide order

10 different sites and forum on an outdated site (main M&M site) is not a proper solution- what was pointed many times

especially when this is official site of the game and is much better shape than the rest Ubi sites


I do not want to switch to every site, log there and then try to find a topic and so on.

There are also other sites with forum (like Heroes community) so what, say that there is no purpouse to make any forum n any Ubi site cause we can use them?

This is far from professional, and i always got the feeling that this was going to be setting the tone in how things for this game were going to be handled.

So, now, because of the feminazis, Sar-Elam happens to be a woman. That is sexist. They have always told us that Sar-Elam is a man, so he should stay as a man. We have enough female gods, and we better won't talk about Asha (female) being good and Urgash (male) being evil. Do you want an explanation of the female djinns? They are related to Asha, as the male djinns are related to Sar-Elam. End of the discussion. But Sar-Elam stays as a man.

It depends on the writer. I don't think mmh7 writers are the type of people who would use "himself" right away. If you read their other writings, unknown gender has always been "himself/herself".

If i did not know the gender of the person i was writing about, i would have clarify that before giving that person a "gender". i no where in the lore does it say that they do not know. if they have sad in the beginning that they did not know his gender there would not be a problem but they did not. or if they had made some of the source talk about him as a she then there would not be a problem.

but that is not what they did, all the sources talk about him being a him.

Personally I found this gender ambiguity a good point from lore perspective. It seems that in-game/in-universe sources can't agree on certain subjects. Just like in real life, some documents will tell that X happened, but others will claim tha actually it was Y. It only shows that Ashan in-universe don't have cannon shared by all.

It's just amazing to me how important gender seems to be to some people. "I've heard some stuff about Sar-Elam being a man, but now Ubi is saying she might be a woman?! This is unacceptable!!! Even though no one knows if Sar-Elam is a man or a woman, I take it as a grave insult that Sar-Elam MIGHT have been a woman!!"

Now, I'll admit, Ubi is retconning a lot lately, but this is one of those cases where the reaction should be more "so what?" and less "OMG, I HATE THIS"

the problem this that all source has agreed on him being a male. if they from the start had made source not agreeing on this point, then that would be a great lore tixst. but that is NOT what happen.
a hundred years ago people claim that he was male and a hundred years from now that will still claim that he is male. so it makes not sens that they now starts claim that they do not know

Now, now, folks. I'm not gonna argue about the fact that Ubi kinda messed up by suddenly dropping this out of the blue instead of hinting at it from the start, like they should. That I get.

What I don't get, is why it's such a big deal. Sar-Elam could have been retconned as a intersex goat for all I care; it's just a video game character with little effect on the game. And it's Ubi's universe, so they can do what they want with it, really.

Do you know what by default means ?
If you don't know the genre of somebody, do you call this person it ?
In lots of languages, you just need to assume the sex of the person.
And I stand by what I say: there is no true representation of Sar Elam... (it was even admitted by devs some years ago), the hooded figure you can find (on the illustrations on wikia) doesn't show anything.
But if you believe that he was a male, good for you.

Also, I'm glad to have a classic lineup and no votes (I think Dungeon would have been better with both Manticores and Medusas in the lineup instead of Striders but you had to make three equal lineups to vote for so... )

Academy could go to be more Arabian without Mesopotamian and Egyptian brushes. The Sphinx by default is mostly female, but there are also male sphinxes. We could go without golems in core and add the anubians as constructs in elite. Having 2 mage units seems too much to me. We could add though either to the core or the elite the Mercenary, looking like arabian soldier with schimitars imbuned with magic from the wizards, or the Immortals of Xerxes as seen in 300 :P

I do not believe you get the point, so I will explain it to you.

You are alone. There is very few people that agrees with you here, if not it is nobody. And many here is tired of all you women hating bullshit! The fact that your comments only rarely gets upvotes support this.

@JeremaihEmo
Arguments like "Anyway, believe me, those people wants women in there just so women will be represented." as a justification to disapprove of including female units, while demanding representation for yourself is not only illogical, but also hypocritical.
"There are people there who'd be enraged if a faction is all-men." while crying about 2 feminine units per faction only proves my point
Using your opinions as facts doesn't make them any more convincing, only makes you look stupid

Exactly my point. Hypocritical. If you've been following my posts the entire time, you'd know that I'm doing this in reflection to the feminists back at hc.com. And who gets called hypocritical? Not them, me.
My theory is correct and you're one of the people proving me that. If it's pro-women, everyone claps hands. If it's pro-men, people call you a woman-hater.

@JeremiahEmo: The fact that makes people complain about your comments is that it is soooooo super clear of wht your oppinion is, if you would decide there would not be any female units in any game that inolves fighting. I don't like feminism but what you're doing is not against feminists, it's just pure hating against women.

This is indeed an awsome line-up, although i would put female creatures for the Sphinx and Djinn. Not that i want to be more balanced (i dont think it the gender has anything to do with the balance) just that it would fit them better that way in my opinion. But it is very good this way too.

@JeremiahEmo, people get annoyed when arguing with you because you act like you opinion and throwing around a few insults gives you a bullet-proof argument. And what is so horrible about having a female unit or two in every line-up? This is also why so few people support you, you automatically assume that if anyone against you garners any support that it must be fake accounts. I have tried to stay out of these conversations but I am now just sick of things like this flooding the comments page.

What are you thinking though - carve artefacts from scratch? Or like, taking other artefacts and altering them to suit needs? Personally I'd like to see the latter, gives it like boundaries to work with, but I wouldn't be opposed to the other one either. Certainly wouldn't like it to be overpowered though. What I think could be really cool would be like if the artefacts were like...a golem arm or something! Using construct powers to alter and enhance the wizard's weaker body!,!

RobvD84 The Mad
November 21, 2014 22:01:08

The H5 version is different because there you could make artifacts for your units, would also be cool if that made it's return, but that was not what i was thinking of. I was more thinking of it to be able to make artifacts that fits within the theme of the faction. But it won't be as good as the most legendary artifacts. And ofcourse i would wan't the artifacts back that could merge together and transform into a complete new and better artifact. And i would call it a Transformer...

You can add abilities on the artifacts, but this would massively increase the costs to craft it.
One of the things i liked about the AoW series crafting was that you could add things like a cannon fuction to a artifact, wich could destroy walls or buildings. Ofcourse the mechanics in that game is different so most abbilities from the AoW series won't work in H7. But maybe things like 10% bonus on sabotage, or 10 % iniative bonus. Or you could even add a spell on it, like prayer (from H3).

I remember making artifacts in Heroes V for units, I once got a 50% initiative boost creature artifact, that was sweet :D I would like to see both this and the ability to make or alter artifacts for heroes in the game. With this we could continue to improve beyond just creature count throughout the entirety of the game.

Can people please stop being so terrified of having female units and characters in might and magic??? It's really quite a backwards mindset. The genies have been repeatedly female in the past, a la 3, 4...and even 5 could have been if their heads weren't just hats. :P for the Druids? Why the fracks NOT? Some of. The oldest and best Druids in might and magic history have been women - say that Druids can't be men without looking at the awesome Gem I dare ya. :D

And as for sar Elam, I loved having that uncertainty thrown in! A neat little twist, seriously! In heroes 6 irina was my favourite hero, she had stacks of character and made an awesome contribution to the story, and if sar Elam ever shows up in by game for whatever reason and turns out to be a woman that'd be fantastic. Heroes 6 was awesome for having so many female units jumping in - I really hope that tradition continues and keeps the field relatively balanced throughout the factions!!! :D

not female units, but female heroes, that's big difference
secondarily - problem with female units seems funny on the one hand, however i would accept those concerns as real issue if there are going to be to many female units
another problem is people want good looking units (mark GOOD, not nice, nor 'the more undressed the better')
for now it's fine
lies, there is that gargoyle 'female' omg...

Yeah but that's the thing, I'm looking at both heroes and units! :) but I agree with you, I don't think there should be too many female units, I just want to see a fair balance. But some people saying 2 units per faction is more than enough is hardly balanced. :P I want to see cool looking units too, but I just don't see why that automatically removes female units from the equation in the case of the Druids? :(

Rakshasa Lore in Heroes 5

Vengeful spirits from a forgotten age, the Rakshasas have lingered on the fringes of Ashan for millennia. Thirsty for revenge, these creatures have been rediscovered by Wizard travellers who - after many unsuccessful attempts - managed to summon and control them efficiently. The Rakshasa Rani are an imposing force on the battlefield, intimidating the enemy with their multi-armed, lion-headed bodies and wickedly sharpened blades. ...

According to wiki: "Rakshasa-Rakshasas are half-human, half-feline Beastmen, created by the Wizards in the year 344 YSD, along with other similar species. While the Minotaurs were the shock troops and the Centaurs the cavalry, the Rakshasas were originally conceived as hunters and bodyguards."

I really hope that the order of the images does not indicate that Rakshasas will be weaker than Apprentices/Disciples. A huge, four armed beastmen that were said to be ,,most dangerous hand-to-hand fighting unit on the surface of Ashan." should be stronger than some young, unexperienced mages.
