megusta3, what do you think about striders?
I think they are very cool and creepy, but your concept much better :)
Смешно, конечно, даже заслужил +1. Просто надеюсь, что все понимают: такая поза у них для того, чтобы подчеркнуть "кукольный", марионеточный облик.
Sandro400, конечно. Но не воспользоваться этой позой грех)
Как-то пошло прозвучало ._.
That's the point. This creature represent another aspect of Malassa: a madness. It looks like a broken puppet. A puppet that doesn't know how to use its own body. Even the simplest moves are performed in a strange way. Oh, it is so clever! Brilliant idea!
I glad and happy seeing Straider 'n Soulless in that model as he is^^
But of course I love my concept to. So if be a option for H8 Dungeon Elite I'll try to convince Devs to think about my concept^^
Where is megusta3's concept? I haven't seen it! Link pls?
Perfect! Absolutely hilarious! Fitting too!
Great pics illustrating just how stupid this creature is! It doesn't fit neither the faction, nor the entire game!!!
i laughed like tousand thunders strong :D epic pictures!
Lol that's freaking Hysterical xD
best comment ever made on this site XD
Medusa - looks a lot better then I thought, consider that it's use H6 Coral Priestess model. Good colours, not too much ornaments and a H6's Nameless Staff in the hand. Red snake eyes are nice.
Strider - I don't remember in which anime, but I have seen you alredy. :P Nevertheless it looks very good, including colours and twisted arms, legs and pose, It's something fitting mysterious Faceless.
Minotaur - H6 model, very good but had only one drawback - purple colour and now it's gone.
My thougths exactly.
Are you saying you liked the purple on the Minotaur?
@Carhinath, (re)read carefully.
@Sandro OH!!! thank you for clarifying. Yeah, I see now; talking about heroes 6. Yeah, I now completely agree with this post. Well said, Avonu_de_Odihs.
And what is good about strider exactly? It looks like a character from a bad Japanese horror movie, so wtf is it doing here i wonder? And it is standing on a Manticore or Beholder place, my God, what were developers thinking?!
Anyone missing Manticore?
красотища !!! perfectly !
This is wondeful, absolutely amazing!
Nice nice nice.. Would love to see them as a neutral creature.. who knows maybe in a Dungeon campaign.
>Anyone missing Manticore?
This picture looks great btw perfect for the upgrade <3
A good repainting, I totally agree...
Luckily, we can bring back Manticores by modding. ;)
The most badass Manticore design I've ever seen... Wouldn't it be so cool to change H6 model in this way and bring it back to H7 instead of sci-fi strider? ;)
When I saw Strider, I lost the human form. Now I am angry and dangerous hyena.
rrrr RRR I want manticore !!!! RR Woof woof woof rr
The community chose strider, lol.
Some part, maybe the bigger part of the community chose Strider. But we are going to bring the Manticore back and kick Strider (or find some other use for it) by modding.
...and deer lol
Wrong, the community's chosen the line-up with medusa which happened to contain strider too.
I'm not against the strider.. yet, need to see the model to make decision, but saying that we've chosen it isn't true, we didn't even know what it is..
Correct, but I am suprisingly suprised to be pleased with the outcome. Dungon came out very well.
Probably by now section has been cleaned up but I recall the votings, basically people voted for Medusa vs Manticore (isn't it a dick move to put these two in separate lineups? At least Minotaur was everywhere...) vs Faceless or/and Nightmare (which was in fact a teleporting(!) "Shadow Unicorn" lol)
Meren , all is well, except for strider. (
If they give us manticores as neutrals, it will be easy to replace them - everyone should be happy.
But it happens that I kind of like these freaky, thin guys :D
@Qriqn , Voting was idiotic, we put before a choice of favorite creatures in different lines.
The thing is they want to make people believe that we chose it. Some of us did want different line-ups, not to mention units within those line-ups. On the other hand, it's good we have had that little influence of choice because it could be much worse, otherwise.
Meren , If we put before the fact, it would be better. It would be better if I did not see the other line. ((
>>>Anyone missing Manticore?
Avonu, you are not alone. ^^
If it wasn't for that pictures, I honestly wouldn't have been because I haven't really liked the designs in the past, but this.... This is WOW. That's amazing, I am missing them in the line-up now...
Dungeon without Manticore it's just not the same, like I said in another post, hopefully the devs will include the manticore as a neutral, then modders can do their magic and put it in the lineup :)
Manticore instead of strider.
I am willingly to trade Minotaur to Manticore :D
I have never used Minotaur at all since Homm3 XD, I preferred flying/ ranged units, and Manticore is awesome XD
We are already missing Unicorn from Sylvan and now you want to scrap Minotaur from Dungeon? Are you insane?
well... I like Pegasus -> Centaur (homm3)-> Naga Queen -> Unicorn -> Manticore, creatures like Goblin/ Troglodyte/ Zombie/ Minotaur were never mine favorite... So if there is any creature that Ubi should bring back, I will definitely vote for Pegasus first. :P
Which is besides the point. Just like Unicorn to the Elven Town, Minotaur is a staple to Dungeon.
"As if they weren’t creepy enough. " lol
Who made this?
He made this.
That is hilarious!
Don't stop!!! You made my day )))
i cant hold my laughter, this is the best article section ever existed in mmh7, so much lol, very much lizard_warrior <3
Minotaur and Medusa, very good. But, wtf Strider lol
welcome back sir
Congratulations on the release ) , Strider - extra large lol
oh u out of the prison dude haha
This honestly confounds me. People have repeatedly blasted H7 for its use of repeat models... then Dungeon Elite rolls around and they praise the reskins while booing the completely new thing. Wat. :|
Kimarous, is good to have new models, but is not good if new models looks retarded lol
Thank you, Kimarous for speaking exactly what I was thinking in my head. I found that quite odd as well. Like the first elite line-up of creatures that are very original, and people still finds ways to complain.
And @GalaadleHaut, I know what you mean! LOL, I felt the same way when I saw the Strider, but I was surprisingly pleased with it after getting past the creepiness and "wtf" moment.
"people still finds ways to complain."
Well, it's not like I WANT to complain, actually, all I ask for is a game I could praise lol
What should the new all like? What kind of nonsense?
Doesn't look retarded to me. Then again, I grew up playing more Soul Calibur than Heroes...
Not to be off-topic but Soul Calibur is awesome, I played a lot the first one on Dreamcast, tons of fun there!
But yeah, kind of have nothing to do with Heroes as you rightly say lol
@GalaadleHaut, I honestly wasn't putting you into that category of people. I honestly find most of your "critical analyses" I'll call them, agreeable. I most of the time have agreed with you on most of the things you have noted, pointed out, and have tried to tell the community here to help. I sometimes can't though, because you have gone a little overboard sometimes with you passion. But I'm honestly thinking of a couple others that bring nothing to the game except trash. Won't name em, lol.
Thanks for your support man, really appreciate it. I'm just so used of people complaining about complainers, adding nothing themselves than fuel to the fire around this place lol
fresh models are necessary ofc but i dont mind reusing old models when the creature is looking good like minotaur for example(plus he has much better color noe, purple is not for minos lol), but yes i would be annoyed if they used the old lich again.
Disappointing for one of the few 'new' units in the game.
RARE monkey species xD/редкие виды обезьян xD
The first pic is so hilarious lmao.
This is what first came to my mind when I saw the Striders ;P
I would like to Medusa changed into stone as in Heroes 3.
We all do...
Everyone, I guess.
One might argue it takes away the specialization of the basilisk, but the counterpoint is "HOW many units have Vigilance?" :P
@Kimarous: In H3, the Medusa also shared the petrification ability with the (Greater) Basilisk. So if both units receive the ability, it's not like they haven't done it before :).
well, I don't care about Medusas so it's not everyone.
Everyone who cares :P
Strider looks like the hiddious offspring of a Faceless, Slenderman, the Sculpture and FNaF's Marionette...
I'm not even mad, it looks awesome!!
I agree. It's look like a devil noface form Chihiro.
Especially the Marionette, I love this creature.
Overall Dungeon line-up seems solid - Stalker, Troggy, Minotaur, Hydra and Medusa look very good, not sure about Strider. The only thing that could ruin it would be rainbow-butterfly-Dragon copied from H6.
Anyway, looks-wise that's the best Dungeon since H3 imo
I hope creature abilities won't disappoint
Definitely! What I was thinking is that if you think of literally every other faction before this, all the champion creatures have been redone, reworked, and remodeled. So it "should" be the case with the black dragon. Let's hope. ;)
remove strider/souless and bring bk manticore!
Don't be kidding XD
Strider to core, Assassin out
Manticore to it's rightful place in elite
Are you really want her back?
I hope that the devs at least include the manticore as a neutral, then modders can do their magic and replace the strider with it.
!! STRIDER'S SPECIAL LEAKED !!
- Bowling of Malassa
Once a battle, the Strider can throw its head into target's opponent, dealing severe damage.
Haha! You have got to be kidding me! :D
hehehe, I wish they were so creative xD
Even more creepier!
hahaha that's hilarious!
I was worried about a construct in dungeon--it seems like their monstrosities should be biological--but seeing the soulless, I am very happy. Absolutely great design--it doesn't look like a golem or robot--just like the mocking darkness given form (the upgrade looks much better than the base in this regard). Actually, its pose is reminiscent of a puppet, which is almost certainly on purpose. A puppet--that's the sort of construct the faceless would use.
It's an extremely cool design and i love how they leave whether its actually a construct or a puppet made of blood by the faceless.
Something new, fresh and cool.
Honestly all this rage and complaining about minor things such as character design, Druids being femal, Necropolis townscreen having spider legs etc, should be put into ralling for better game mechanics, such as an impoved skill wheel, improved hero spesializations, improved creature aabilities etc. Who cares if your druids are male, if the game is boring and horrible to play!!
We try to stay on topic lol
I guess staying on topic doesn't really matter, since the devs don't listen to anything we say :P
I guess we all know these things won't be changed.... There was a time when we tried to bring their attention to crappy mechanics but all we got in response was a "you're wrong, we're right so fuck you" kind of article :f
Pretty much. Then you see them play on twitch like a 5 year old.
Even I'll freely admit that their gameplay demonstrations are as amateur as their dialogue pronunciations. "Duck of Wolf", anyone? :P
And if you point any of these things out your just a "hater".
Totally, because asking for decent mechanics, the kind that's not copied from H6 is sabotaging the game and killing the franchise.
I'd rather be a helpful ''hater'' then an ebola infected Supporter that says good job when its not the case.
GalaadleHaut, I think it would have been interesting)
Malassa polo team loooooool
джо в баллисту заходь , кидаю инфу !
haha, fantastic idea! xD
Lol. ,,As if they weren't hilarious enough" ( ͡ᵔ ͜ʖ ͡ᵔ )
Кажется, я разгадал смысл Страйдера!
Стоишь ты, значит, такой в рядах армии, вышедшей против Тёмных Эльфов, и тут на поле боя, скрипя в суставах и пошатываясь в конечностях, выползает... ЭТО. Как на это реагировать?! Что делать?! Обосраться от страха и убежать? Или лопнуть от смеха? Как его убить? Что он делает? Кто это вообще?! И всё... боевой дух сломлен, когнитивный диссонанс, пена изо рта, судороги, поражение без боя.
Думаю именно с такой целью и создавали их безликие)
Логично)) Как оружие психического давления они должны быть хороши.
Since this comment was upvoted, I will translate it:
I guess I solved the idea behind the Strider.
Imagine yourself standing on a frontline against Dungeon army, when with the sound of creaking joints and staggered extremities on a battlefield appears... THIS. What to do?! How to react?! Shit into your pants and flee? Or die laughing? How to defeat it? What he do? Who is he after all?! And.. that it... Morale broken, cognitive dissonance, frothing at the mouth, convulsions, loss without a fight.
Strider , my God, how terrible , the consequences of abuse of amphetamines ,,,,,
That is exactly how this creature should look like. Like an abuse of drugs and madness.
