+ Creature models resize;
+ Full game content offline;
+ Special creature animations;
+ Cool-cams frequency;
+ Night maps and weather effects;
+ Preserving the "Heroes" feel and having a powerful Map Editor;
+ No more neon color-coded factions;
+ Legacy Heroes ( like Sandro? :D );
+ Cooler cinematics;
+ PC title. " optimized for the holy Mouse & Keyboard ;) ";
+ Powerful modding tools ( hopefully! ).


I'm lost for words. All of this sounds amazing!

the actual “scale” of those creatures MIGHT change within those boundaries = means no =)

neon sadly doesnt mean not green necro =( (btw why cant they just simply say if green necro or not...)

funny animations is just money-wasting in my opinion

but at least it sounds like they consdered it

map , editor and modding sound good, in map editor make objects occupy squares so its much simpler (dunno how H6 editor worked i couldnt even find decent object placement in it

Keep up the good work !!:)

Hopefully that terrible shade of green will stay away from the undead faction his time around. And that terrible purple for dungeon. Too much of a color is bad, but the wrong color for the wrong faction can be equally as bad.

Pretty sure there is initiative, but it's in h6 style so it just arranges the order of the units Cleglaw. Essentially it's same as h3 system, but the initiative is just seperated from speed. They've already said they are using the h6 battle-system and seen it on the demo(s).

GalaadleHaut The Hero
January 19, 2015 23:44:31

What I really hated and consider as DRASTICALLY different from h3 battle in h6 ones is the speed of units, not as initiative, but as movement. Core units crossing entire battlefield in two turns, almost one with morale boost ? lol ... Hope we will avoid that.

yeah i know, but i thought should press on my opinion because of GURS(demand heard.). i dont want devs to believe everyone wanting initiative.

about 3d towns, we didnt make too much loud voice, and later on some people got suprised by the amount of 2d-ts supporters...

if the setting was Peter Pan, singing kumbaya telling how great being a Disney Princess is. While you're at it, might as well add Tinker Bell in the background.

This is Heroes, not the Disney Princesses game. She'd be the better choice if Dungeon has Rapunzel instead of Medusas, the Orcs' main hero was Fiona and Snow White calling her army of animals to reign down on her foes.

Hope they will make female druid, just for change, they could make her model really interesting.

With the same logic, an artist depicting a female Namtaru can make an equally kickass male Namtaru. Would you welcome male Namtarus just for the sake of change too?

Would you say the same thing about male Namtarus or male Pixies or male Shadow Witches or male Blood Furies, etc..?

Besides, what makes 'yours' stand out in comparison to the ones I posted? Yours isn't all too special either. And personally I think the red-haired druid catches the eye immediately with that glowing, fiery hair of hers. And another, the one with those exceptionally long ears, pointing to the sky and with an expression on her face as if she just realizes something interesting. Plus, there is the staff. Where's your dude's staff, eh?

22
JeremiahEmo The Destroyer
January 20, 2015 13:14:29

@Marblethrone
I don't think many players care about eye catching red hairs and glowing girly girl eyes. Besides, she looks too soft to be a war unit.
How badass a unit is? Now that's a determinant. Your models on the other hand look like Beauty Queen Pageant girls who has no place in the battlefield either. They'll just be comparing makeups and hope at the end of the day, they nails won't get broken.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
January 20, 2015 13:23:17

Well, you can't really blame an Elf for looking young, delecate, maybe a bit unsure. I mean, even at three thousand years of age they can still look like they're in their early twenties. Goes for the males too.

And as long as the Druid in question carries with her a staff, you better watch your words matey. I must relate, out of personal experience, that one wrong word or action will result in a cooked ass Lightning Style. Not to mention walking around all day thinking you're a bird.

January 20, 2015 13:42:32

Now we're talking. Yes, I am fully aware this is not your average Miss Universe election, but a fantasy RPG game which includes battles, campaigns etcetera. Still, I don't believe 'best' or 'badass' has to equal 'male'. The examples I've shown may not be the best of their kind in that respect, but why shouldn't the dev team be able to create an everlasting badassness using a female model? Maybe they'll have their faces covered like the Haven Magic heroes.

Which means their still-present beauty doesn't have to show (or perhaps, distract?) that much. It's below the surface of whatever it is they're wearing. A costume like the H6's Dungeon magic heroes would do, don't you think? A robe, green and emerald, golden embroidery, runic symbols, small rubies...I don't know, there's a vault of possibilities.

Full badassery is male in my humble opinion. That's just how it is. Male favors the badass side while female favors the kind and caring side. While yes, there can be men that are kind and caring or women that are badass, the most badass are just male and most kind and caring are just female.
It's actually why I never had any bad opinion about Sisters. They fit their role. If it weren't for the badass Priests, I'd welcome them in the Haven lineup.

1. Pixie
2. Dryad
3. Succubus
4. Sister
5. Namtaru - though I admit, I love to gender-bend her but only because you gender-bend Druids. Though she may not get a spot because Necropolis has a lot of better choices for champion.
6. Banshee
7. Harpy
8. Shadow Witches - though they can be male. What do you think mediczero? ;)

Jeremiah, Traditionally witches was female, but in some places of the world (like Finland and Iceland) they didn't understand this and declared many males as witches. But for a good order we should have them female, fits better with the theme of the dark elves. Also, I'm starting to question if we need badass druids over wise and intelligent druids. But I wouldn't mind them being male if we had some actual humanoid female pixies. And please add the glories to the list of the females...

@mediczero
Druids were also traditionally male. If you think witches should be female and druids should be female and use tradition as an excuse then you're being a hypocrite.
Though, I do agree, I prefer a female Pixie. Make them look H5-esque. The Dryads should look something like a wood-like female. Then, all the others: Druids, Hunters and Blade Dancers are male.

And correction, the male druids look more intelligent than the female druids. Female druids has the advantage on the kind and caring department.

@GalaadleHaut
the male gender voting of the druids is winning so are you sure it's just for me?
Plus, since when is female druids becoming the norm all of a sudden? The male druids are the traditional druids. Just curious, do you think witches are not allowed to be male too?

* why or why not

22
JeremiahEmo The Destroyer
January 21, 2015 02:19:43

ok, ok..
I didn't read your rebuttal right.
Say this is what happened:
The Dark Elf men started revolting because no men was allowed to become Shadow Witches. They have this movement called masculinism. The movement was successful and it turns out that more men are better at doing the Shadow Witches' job than women. More men became Shadow Witches and now, about 80% of Shadow Witches are male.

That should justify why the Shadow Witch model is male. Do you approve of this? Why or why not.

22
Niwroc The Ancient
January 21, 2015 02:30:01

I'm against that particular story, better would be a single clan, maybe a handful that have societal positions inverted. So you have some matriarchal and some patriarchal clans.

The reason I don't like that is because it seems weak. This is because there is no apparent reason that males new to the profession would be generally superior to the women who probably trained from birth nor why would so many of them stop suddenly.

22
Niwroc The Ancient
January 21, 2015 02:32:14

On druids, I think the ratio is actually close to 50/50 in game so the model could really go either way. Based upon past heroes games, it would be female. Based upon H5 it would be male. But being serious here, there is really no reason for one to be overwhelmingly more common than the other based upon hero distribution which is roughly split evenly between male and female. I don't anticipate the actual numbers being more than 60/40 regardless of the in-game model.

22
JeremiahEmo The Destroyer
January 21, 2015 02:54:08

@Niwroc
So, you're ok with male Shadow Witches as long as there's a good lore. That's good. I have to admit, I was about to group you in the same league as mediczero, but then I realize, this is a different guy. I apologize.

Anyway, the 50-50 distribution of gender was in a different world. We are now in Ashan, where no female druid has been seen before. Plus if you'll base it on hero distribution then knights, wizards, rangers, necromancers, etc are dominantly male (see H5).

22
Niwroc The Ancient
January 21, 2015 03:42:35

Actually, in 1-4, druids were predominately female or androgynous. In 5 we have at least a handful of verified female druid heroes. Such as the one that specializes in sprites and a few others. And on the others you listed, yeah, their factions armies are predominately male or totally gender less in the case of academy and necropolis which is the case with a number of their units.

22
JeremiahEmo The Destroyer
January 21, 2015 05:07:32

I don't think you're understanding me correctly here. Heroes 1 - 4 was a different world. Enroth and Axeoth is different from Ashan. Almost every (if not every) druid in Ashan is male. And if I remember correctly, Dirael's job description was ranger, not druid.

22

God, some of you just whine and cry at the littlest things and it makes me just draw back from this community. I appreciate that we are taken into accounts, not that some people always whine about anything, anyway. Go on and hate, I don't mind, some of you guys are worse than spoiled brats ^_~

There is minimum criticism on this article.

Even so, it does not matter, for devs should consider listening to us. We *are* fans and we expect a quality game. If the majority does not agree with something, well then, I guess the devs must be blind and deaf not to acknowledge that.

What is worse is calling us spoiled brats. A low point on your account. As if you want us to stop raging to have H6 drama again.

@EnnergyW Of course I enjoy us wanting the feedback and I love that they do it with us and yes espacially after H6. But in all honnestly, most comments I read are "not happy about this or that". People seem to NEVER be happy, and pick at the littlest. So yup, spoiled brat, I stand by it. Let them do their job, give your opinion but stop crying at anything. I stand by that, sorry.

^ Define "majority", since it often seems like the same three or four people bringing up the same inane arguments over and over again. Also, contradictary complaints; one moment accusing the devs of not giving them what they want because of budget, and the next demanding features that would really exceed said budget. 3D town screens comes to mind...

I'd say that it's a phsycologic problem in some way. Becouse people will always find something to "whine" at. If there is small ammount of things that are bad, people will whine at every detail. And on this site we get posts quite frequently but they are small and contain not much info. So when there is not much to talk about and people have sometimes even few days without anything else to talk about, they'll talk about everything that is bad/wrong (in their opinion) in that post.

Btw, comment section is here for us to show what we think of the info we're given and give constractive critisism. Many people "whine" and "cry" about every detail becouse they love this game series. They love Heroes of Might and Magic. And they want H7 to be as good as it can be. So they want everything that is bad to be removed.

@Captainofminion I don't know, I've been playing for a while too and I see more complaints in comments than praise, to be honnest. A lot of people, reading comments, seem hyper picky to me. Anyway, I'll end it here because this might be a never stop subject, but yup, I find a lot of people rather harsh and never happy, always picking at the smallest things. I don't think it's "cheering" for the dev team, a lil less critism, a lil more happy about the good things would be nice. Anyway, I shut up,

Hey, Kimarious, a fine example of majority are fans who actually spammed the article with that #GURS. And it worked.

Maybe there is a genuine reason why People complain like bad decision, did you consider that? If we just stay quiet regardless what crap gets thrown at us, we can only blame ourselves. For example townscreens, Probably 90-95% comments were negative about them. I think the reason was pretty clear since they were pretty bad. Fans made way better versions of same screen which should be Devs job! It feels like they are just gonna put some lousy ts and hero model together hoping fans Will fix 'em! :(

Still:

1. Add forum (hell yeah!)

3. Change Haven town (especially those walls, townportal placement and magc guild)

4. Still waiting for Academy & our levels and achievemens

Ared, if town screens are really a "work in progress" then it would have been nice to see some actual progress between the awful Academy screen and the still-awful Haven screen. But instead we got more of the same problems - as if they had completely ignored all the comments/criticisms/suggestions. I cannot continue to be reassured by the claim "work in progress" when that happens.

Otherwise full agreement. Seems like the animations issue is getting way over-blown.

23
JotunLogi 
January 16, 2015 22:16:39

I really do not see any reason about townscreen- animations and all mechanics connected can be with progress. But not art and concept of the town itself- it is not as hard and it does not require IT knowledge, just proper talent and fantasy.

Many games have great arts and graphic conceptions (often they are their only strong point). I do not buy this "in progress"- art of the town can be done correctly immediately, without errors and things not done.

That's great, it really is, but no online-activation at all would be even better : I don't like having to hassle through Uplay before I can finally press INSTALL and relax.
Moreover, is a mistrust towards true fan who will purchase original product, on top of being completely useless as pirates will always bypass security -is what they do.

Why are they spending money to keep the worst thing about H6? "Funny" animations where the gravestone of that game. It may be good for 7year olds but but in owerall,it is worse than any other faults in the whole heroes franchise.

28

@wasd because some of them have to defend their honor having worked on h6 so they consider it the best game ever and try to take elements from it! Or so it feels to me at times, (sighs...)

22

@ramborusina
They indeed do so but this has nothing to do with honor. It's business: they cannot scrap everything from H6 coz it would be like officially admitting that they made a bad game. And if shareholders would see any hint of something like that the stock price would drop and company could loose quite some money.

30

Yeah, one would think that Sanctuary is an obvious choice...
Right now they mostly take H6 graphics style (or am I forgetting something?), and I'm glad about that. Sometimes they borrow a bit too literally and that is not the best.
The most controversial design decisions of that game were dropped. That is very good.

If they try to communicate in English, it sometimes makes even less sense than their native language.

It does create a schism, two seperate 'clans' of fans here, and we never know what they are talking about xD.
