Щупал я бету - а пропадаю на работе xD
Да и движухи особо не вижу, вот и не пишу.
Nice interview of a very diplomatic (Grandmaster Diplomacy I guess) John van Caneghem.
Great to hear and see Jon! Congrats on your race wins!
Seeking blessing from JVC? You guys are too much LMFAO
Hey, MARZHIN, are you there? Important question, answer please: since Jonny confirmed the identity of the Creators as the Ancients, are you going to change what you have planned for Episode 3 of the Legends of the Ancients? Specially that awful part when Kreegans happened to be good since the begining (seriously, in what were you thinking?). I have been reading today this (I just finished Episode 3 and I need to ask you): http://www.celestialheavens.com/homm5/art_of_lota_complete.pdf
Please, MARZHIN, change that. "Good Kreegans" is definitely not a good idea. I still have to read Episode 4, maybe there it happens to be a demonic lie and I am being stupid right now, but everything was going perfect until that moment.
Still, are you going to change what you wrote about the Creators?
Because, as Jonny said, the Creators have zero relation with the Kreegans.
I just finished Episode 4, and Sandro appears fighting in the good side. Seriously, what the fuck?
I am going to propose a different ending: Alamar is not Archibald (Archibald would be dead after the events of the cancelled M&M X where he would have resurrected Sheltem from his helmet, delivered to him by some space travelers), Alamar is Sandro. While everyone is fighting, Sandro takes the Staff of blue Light to do accomplish the plan of Gavin Magnus. He also has a box which contains Sheltem (just like Corak in the ending of M&M V), who would have been resurrected again by Sandro.
Sheltem fights the Guardian of Axeoth, who kills him in a similar way as Corak defeated him. She teleports both of them to space where she activetes her autodestruction, so they both die.
Then, Solmyr confronts Sandro, but he is defeated. What follows is a few years of tyranical rule of Sandro over the whole world of Axeoth, leading an army of creatures similar to the creatures of the cancelled Heavenly Forge.
Then, after a few years, another Kreegan invasion happens, which leads to a world war. Both Sandro (who manages to escape and hide) and the Kreegans are defeated. Nicolai Ironfist (forget his romance with Alita), who would have traveled to Palaedra after Episode 3, leads a crusade through the portals opened by the Kreegans, going to a devastated Enroth where the legions of the demons are gathering.
He kills the leader of the demons, but he can't return to Axeoth because the portals are closed. So he finds the portal which Lord Morglin Ironfist crossed to arrive to Enroth and his wizards are able to reverse the magic, so they use the portal to escape to his grandfather's native world, where he would rebuild the Ironfist kingdom (it would have been destroyed by barbarians).
That would be just the first part. Note this: the novels about Jassad happened in Axeoth before the Reckoning. It was Jassad the one who opened the portals to save the people of Enroth. But this has increased the tensions between the Arc and the Bright Star, because they are in a Cold War and the intervention in another worlds is seen as a way to obtain more resources.
The Kreegans are trying to force the intervention of Jassad to cause a war between the Arc and the Bright Star, and it works.
Jassad goes to Axeoth to fight the Kreegans because they are a major threat, but then he causes an open war with the Bright Star.
I leave it here, because I like cliffhangers. But I would tell you one thing: this ends with Jassad and Sandro (who would have become more powerful than ever) killing each other, the Arc and the Bright Star unified after they forge an alliance against the Kreegans, and the Kreegans forced to retreat from this stellar sector.
Oh, and Gavin magnus would have been definitely destroyed by Sandro, who learned to use the powers of the Void.
No good Kreegans, no good Sandro, and yes to true evil characters.
This new unified stellar nation would conquer every world in the sector: Axeoth, Enroth, Xeen, Ardon, the native world of Lord Morglin Ironfist,...
The Arc and the Bright Star are worlds which, in spite of the Silence, they managed to preserve technology.
And with that I think I explain everything.
*The Arc and the Bright Star are CONFEDERATIONS OF worlds which...
Legends of the Ancients is only fan fiction my friend, and I wrote it a decade ago :) Don't take it too seriously ^^
I really enjoy the games, great design. However, I refuse to purchase another game that has the Uplay launcher. It causes so much headache and problems. If you remove the launcher and/or Uplay stuff (or at least make it optional) then you'll have me and my friends sending you our $$$$.
GZ, Marzhin, for completing your childhood dream. Don't complete JVC's bad dream, collapsing his child into a poorely designed low-fi game.
мурк - эхидна )
Эхинацея ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Жулик - только для старших. Для всех остальных - Жульен! ;)

^⨀ᴥ⨀^ Hi , Sempai_Mur , че там по теме есть у вас ? ))
Ну а по теме: я рад, что в штаб-квартиру ubisoft завезли немного картошки, чтобы SC наконец-то заработал.
Джон ван Канегем - мой кумир! Придумал такие великие серии игр как Might and Magic, Kings Bounty и Heroes of Might and Magic! Уважаю его! Кстати в следующем году 30-летие серии Might and Magic! Надеюсь выйдет Might and Magic 11! И она вберёт в себя лучшее от Might and Magic 6-8! Ибо это шикарные игры благодаря Джону!
Cool to see Jon van Caneghem !! Very nice !
Dommage qu'on n'ait pas de sous-titrage, à la vitesse et vu l'accent avec lequel il parle, difficile de comprendre quelque chose quand on est francophone.
Tnx Jon for making the best game of my life! Heroes 3 and 6. Tnx :)
3 and 6 don't really go together lol
Heroes VI, one of the best games of your life ? Did you play other games apart these two ones ?
6 and 3, lol.
I agree - 3 is still the best version and I still go back to that game and play it now and then. 6 is my next favorite. Unfortunately, the platform crashes A LOT and there is the whole black screen problem. Nevertheless, it still is most like 3, has the best stories, great graphics and maps.
JVC please come back!
Save this franchise from the incompetent hands of Erwan!
I could have answered all of these questions with such ease that, I would have added that the reason why the game was designed then made in that way was all about adding mythology inside the "raison d'etre" of the ancient ways of life of our race: The humans. Moreover... medieval age and mythology has always been a true success story when it comes to the general interest in the made-up world of dreams and fantasy of Earth's Humans' history(women and their Prince Charming...get it?). ;)
No, they should add HOMM.
This is the creator of MMH? Really? Lol!
Breaking news! Why did you hide this info. for all these years, lol.?
And who is the creator of HOMM!?
one answer - lol ))
"an interview with the creator of the M&M franchise". It all started with Might and Magic before Heroes was made. And Julien clearly says: "...and I'm with special guest Jon van Caneghem, the creator of Might & Magic AND Heroes."
Pointless comment of yours, really.
He is a creator of M&M! no MMH/
But UBI know better :P
They just forgot to add "and" between M&M and Heroes ^^....
Better than you :P
Ubi knows everything, I'm not surprised :3.
UBI wants to connect H7 with his past games that have nothing to do with His vision of the game. To promote H7. It is a nasty practice.
At least they asked for his vision instead of pretending he never existed. That Ubi's work and his work may not match as much as everyone hopes and wants, is one thing. But I think it's a point in their favor for at least interviewing the Man who made their work possible. The same goes for bringing in Terry Ray for a Q&A and using his script for a DLC in H7. Why not promote H7, at the 20th anniversary, with an interview with the creator of it all? I think it only makes sense.
It would have been odd if they hadn't done it this way.
This is just misleading and manipulative. Some average guys may think he is the one who created MMH VI or VII.
All it takes is a little search on Google to find out what JVC has done, and what Ubisoft has done. Even average people should be able to do that, imo...
It's not only about him, but also about the games they try to connect to. They are not the same. It's misleading to show the old titles with H7 logo attached to it. We know how different they are.
And now this - they claim he is the creator of MHH in the official trailer on UBI channel, OMG.
Stop this drama already. People who know WHO IS John Van Caneghem are know which games he is responsible for and which he is not. And people who don't know him basically don't even care.
It's not about who know what, but about UBI nasty practices.
Manipulative marketing. They should create a games like he did. If they have a different vision, they should disconnect from the past games.
You are UBI puppets left with HOPE.
Manipulated marketing needs someone to manipulate on. How could you manipulate on people who don't even know who is JVC. This is nonsense.
And BTW where did you find this "creator of MMH" stuff? I can only see "creator of the M&M franchise" which is true.
You don't get it? He and his games is one, which had nothing to do with H7. Why the hell they attach H7 logo to his games? It's a different game. Different vision with different gameplay.
Besides, he was the creator of HOMM, not MMH.
This is not how he called his games.
Does it look like JVC cares? No, and neither should you.
I'm under the impression that he's only happy that his game, his franchise has survived for so long and is continued to be explored. Bringing him in for the 20th anniversary celebration is only one way of acknowledging what he has done.
Oh don't bother. I found it. Still I don't see any crime here. Since they doesn't point at any specific game, just MMH franchise which is the same as HOMM franchise, whether you like it or not. Cuz JVC is a creator of this franchise, no matter how it calls nowadays.
>> he was the creator of HOMM, not MMH.
He IS the creator.
All I care is how UBI tries to trick people by connecting to the past game that have nothing to do with H6 and H7. That's all I care. They could create a game like H5, H3 etc. but they didn't want to. Now they use it to promote H7 Damn.
>> This is not how he called his games.
And THIS is the most funny thing. You know what? The name "Heroes of Might and Magic" appeared just because of some marketing shit you hating so much. At first this game was called just Heroes. But because of the fame of M&M games they decided to parasite on theirs own name, and add popular brand to theirs new game. That how Heroes of Might and Magic appeared. Marketing.
>>All I care is how UBI tries to trick people by connecting to the past game that have nothing to do with H6 and H7
Nothing? Oh really? I must be played a different games then...
UBI is that funny to copy exactly the same tactic? I wasn't aware of it, lol :D But there a difference - HOMM was a success, MMH is not.
And I wouldn't even mind marketing if the game was as good as HOMM. Good quality should be marketed.
I don't like the fact that they try to mix good quality with bad quality. But whatever.
mr3LiON: Yeah, you played different games. That's true.
So be it
It was quite a surprise. JVC talking about games instead of a super cars:)
I can only imagine how happy Marzhin was to make this interview.
Ubi, you understand that such a site is a frequent falls very severe blow to the company's reputation? What would happen to the game?
Уби,вы понимаете что такие частые падения сайта -это очень сильный удар по репутации компании?Что тогда будет с игрой?
