Article is up (very) early today :)
Good guys! :)
When will be 2nd beta?
Earlier than usual .
Nice, if a bit leafy, seems kinda uncomfortable walking around with all this leaves on you but beautiful artwork nontheless.
and now to more pressing concerns....
please please pleaessssssse show us the final lich and vampire artwork and the warfare units in stronghold and sylvan! please don't let it be forgotten and only show us when the game releases.
Hm, guess you took some initiative this time. Good.
Cause yall are getting a head start on dungeon right ;)
"The Fourth Eclipse gave him the opportunity,"
"killed the Demon general during the Second Eclipse,"
Sooo the second or fourth eclipse ??! You guys should decide :P
Oops, my mistake. Thanks for spotting it :)
That's ok :-) And the strange weapon they found is the Blade of Binding ? ;)
Indeed. The blade controls (binds) demons and you can guess, why they flew when demonic general was killed.
And I think that "unidenfied" Wizard was Ahz Rafir - otherwise why to cover his name? ;)
Couldn't that also be Delara, her husband?
Yes, it could.
Between Fourth eclipse and M&M:CoH 80 years Ahz Rafir cannot be so old.
He's a Wizard. ;)
As I understand that was (grand)mother/father of Delara. Not Ahz Rafir.
he can be a necro now...
How do you know about these wizards (z Rafir and Delara)??? Where did you hear or read about them?
"With a battle cry of 'Ashan',...". Is that how Erwan wakes up every morning? ^^
You don't want to know :P
And before sleep Erwan reads the story about mighty and wise Spiderlords who rule the universe.
And "Ruch now. Think later" when he play soccer :P
Look it's Legolas!
I don't know, at least Legolas looked like a man. This one... not so much.
Hopefully it's just the artwork that makes him look like that. He's probably got a better looking 3d model, like the blade dancers etc.
"With a battle cry of “Ashan!” ..."
Stevie dude. Come on. You are getting tiresome. If you are heartbroken about your game being spoiled give it up and let the rest of the people enjoy a new article without that heroes-always-negative-community attitude. Keep that foe the other forum.Gee you guys are literally trying to find stuff to mock and b*tch about. Take a break!!
Surely something more imaginative could've been written. Like: "They charged in, shouting: "For the glory of our homelands!" and stroke the demons down.
Besides, realistically speaking, would someone start yelling Ashan in battle? I wouldn't.
What you wanted to hear, Stevie? "For Great Justice!"?
Anything less facepalm-inducing. Like "For the glory of our homelands!" as EnergyW suggested. Or "For the future of our kin!", "For our world's safety!", "For Marzhin's terrible puns!, "For le Bretonia". You get it.
For the Alliance!
Faction Vote where you can actually rank factions. I'm sick of only choosing one.
I'll post results once their has been enough feedback.
Hey, great idea!
Brilliant idea! I'll look foward to it!
Be sure and publish results from time to time.
28 Responses and so far here are the results:
Once there's even more info I'll attache a link to a screenshot of the result graph.
As of now Dungeon and sylvan are the first 2 of the 4 we had to choose from beta so :)
I'm surprised Haven has scored the lowest so far. Not one of my favorites but I always thought they were one of the more preferred factions.
Well Haven has been there since H1 so people kinda got bored with it.
I have a feeling most ppl voted with only how the factions are in H6 and H7 instead of looking at them from the whole franchise. My top 4 was 1# Academy, 2# Necro, #3, Inferno and 4# Haven. For me Academy was the best in H5. Necro the best in H3 (altho the death spells in H4 was the best), Inferno the best in H5 and Haven the best in H4.
I agree. I do think most will base it on the last two games but for me I've played H1 through H6 so I based it on a combination of them all including H7. Really I'm just curious where each faction will lie in the end. After 50 results I'll give the screenshot. It's at 36 right now and the survey doesn't have a time limit.
@Lucifael7: I think it's partially that as well. I can say that I rarely choose Haven myself but I have friends that will only play Haven and just love them. I just find all of the other factions more interesting.
Dungeon uber alles!
@Rob I voted based on HV - HVII. HV is still my favourite game from the series, and Dungeon my favourite faction for that game, followed by Sylvan, Academy, Necropolis and Haven, in that order.
Playing only the preferred faction is a bit too much:)..I liked the wood elves factions since h3 (with a bit of disappointment for h4 one) but i always play all the factions enjoying them almost equally. Even now i go and play with H3 Fortress might hero + water magic. Bless+Prayer(need a diff castle for it :D since they have mag 3 guild only) on Lizardmen Warriors kick every1's asses!
54 Votes and now for the update with screenshots of the results!
The second image shows how many people chose each rank for the factions and the calculated average.
@Lucifael7: I agree with you there I usually choose random and just play with what I get. I like not knowing what to expect and just making it work for me.
Lasir from CoH
Now I have just thought, that vote for lich and vampire redesign, many were not pleased that the undead priest choice won by just 1% ahead of the anicent mummy. After seeing the art with the lich for the Necropolis, people were pleased with the initial look.
Now, this should be proof enough the devs can do well if they try enough.
They said loud and clear on twitch that skill system is "very similar" to the one in h5 lmfao
Probably because it is their pride, I don't know.
Or maybe they just don't get Heroes, kinda sad.
All of them understand, they just want "their own heroes" .
I am firmly convinced they don't, and I am not sure they want to, they prefer to consider the formula which made these series awesome in the first place is flawed. SHAME SHAME SHAME.
why does he look like a woman? It would be great if they would stop with the girly girl Elf cliches.
Ohh he is back!
But Lasir or any of the other male elves does not look girly...
He's always been around, he just doesn't comment much on threat of banhammer.
The one on your avatar doesn't look masculine either.
We want 2 expantions: 1st deffencive with fortress and sancruary and 2nd offencive with inferno and elementals! #GiveUs4MoreFractions ;)
Chcemy 2 dodatki: 1wszy defensywny z fortecą oraz sanktuarium i 2gi ofensywy z inferno i żywiołakami!
No. 'You' want.
Z tymi 1 dodatkiem zgodzę się w 100%, natomiast co do 2 to powrót Inferna jak najbardziej popieram, tylko wątpię czy w Ashanie jest miejsce na zamek z żywiołami.
Do you think we really need elemental faction? 4 more factions is good but the fourth one could be more interesting, for example Free Cities or Bastion...
Would prefer Cove (pirates) over conflux (elemental)!
Why not add some new, Void-related faction instead of Conflux? Besides, we should now think primarly about fixing the vanilla and not expanding it. ;)
Forteca - krasnoludy są niezbędne w fantasy (jak elfy)
Świątynia - tak
Inferno - to oni są złem Ashanu, powinni zaatakować Ivana i jego osłabione Imperium
Wrota żywiołów - problem w tym, że mamy układ 3 tierów i musielibyśmy wybrać silniejsze żywioły i słabsze
Yep, me too! Loved Nixes, Sea Serpents and cannon as warfare unit in HotA!
Because even Conflux is deeper than a void faction, not to speak about a ton of better idea...
But still inferno has to be in too.
if first expansion would be fortress and sanctuary then second expansion should be inferno and 'swamp faction'
To be honest i'm also prefer pirate fraction and my favourite fraction would be lizardmans swamp fraction, but i thinh that there is no chances that devs would add some of swamp/pirate/elemental fraction. If they could the most chances will have elementals. Thats the readon of my post :D
хз, но кто это "мы"? Ляхи что ли?
Yeah it would be cool to see free cities and "swamp" faction too.
this would be great, i hope they can add 2 factions in an expansion that shouldve happened with homm 6
when we will see new vampire and lich designs?
I'm starter to believe that they really forger about lich and vampier remake..
Give Us Vanpire and Lich New Looks!
Nah, i think they want to save the best for last.
Need more pre-orders , that's what they want . So did "Intrigue" .
The general design of the game is quite bad, imho.
Agreed, Ubi is using the Heroes name to make their own game and nothing else. There is too much evidence.
when we will see dungeon creatures?
