"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.

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.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
September 11, 2015 19:42:36

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.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous

This is just misleading and manipulative. Some average guys may think he is the one who created MMH VI or VII.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
September 11, 2015 19:52:44

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...

30
mErEnEfErEee The Furious
September 11, 2015 19:55:02

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.

30
mErEnEfErEee The Furious
September 11, 2015 19:55:45

And now this - they claim he is the creator of MHH in the official trailer on UBI channel, OMG.

Manipulative marketing. They should create a games like he did. If they have a different vision, they should disconnect from the past games.

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.

30
mErEnEfErEee The Furious
September 11, 2015 20:12:42

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.

30
mErEnEfErEee The Furious
September 11, 2015 20:13:51

Besides, he was the creator of HOMM, not MMH.

30
mErEnEfErEee The Furious

Does it look like JVC cares? No, and neither should you.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
September 11, 2015 20:15:57

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.

22
mr3LiON 
September 11, 2015 20:16:35

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.

22

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.

22
mr3LiON 
September 11, 2015 20:24:26

>> 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.

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.

30
mErEnEfErEee The Furious
September 11, 2015 20:32:38

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.

That really was an unexpected interview :). The last interview I saw with JVC in it was from 2011, at the E3 conference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxzGxkI6Qdc. It's awesome that you were able to contact him for this, and have him shed his light on the franchise and where it is now. I wish JVC the best of luck with his new company and the games he develops :).

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

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 00:38:42

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?

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 00:41:05

Because, as Jonny said, the Creators have zero relation with the Kreegans.

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:17:09

I just finished Episode 4, and Sandro appears fighting in the good side. Seriously, what the fuck?

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:23:12

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.

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:27:24

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.

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:32:44

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.

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:37:40

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).

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:42:58

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.

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:50:32

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.

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:51:42

Oh, and Gavin magnus would have been definitely destroyed by Sandro, who learned to use the powers of the Void.

22
Tito_Reni The Mad
September 15, 2015 16:58:00

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.
