Stream is unfortunately now over but you can catch-up anytime with the replay available here: http://www.twitch.tv/ubisoft/v/15062040 ! :)
It was a pleasure for us to see many of you there, we hope you had a great time with us and appreciated our 20th Anniversary’s surprises :)
I sure did had great time :) Map editor looks really good and the surprise which adds more content to the game will help to keep the game alive, thanks Ubi-Nox for the stream and Marzhin for finding the workbook and for the interview with the JVC! ( lucky U ;) )
When in try join stream it's just loaded Ubisoft channel endlessly.
@Marzhin Hmmm maybe you are still here :D Me and Articun,we would love to get to know your opinion about the faction we have created for ICTC ( even if it would be brief and short ;) ) It's reinvention of swamp city (Fortress) from HIII into the Ashan world. Now it's a Bastion, I think we did our best to fit the Ashan and also to keep it different and unique than other factions. Thanks in advance ;)
There actually is faction voting opened which consists mostly of your ideas right here : http://strawpoll.me/5197669 would be great if more people participated.
I didn;t know this poll existed, let alone that it had Bastion as a reference for a future Heroes Faction O.O
Wow, thnx guys!!!
It looks sick! I like that you created creatures that fit the swamp without killing units from other factions. Yeah you have Hydras that already exist in the Dungeon faction, but you described them as smaller, and they have also legs, which is a nice idea. The Cipactli looks a bit weird though ^^
Would be great if ubi took this as a basis to actually add this faction in a later patch.
It looks really swampy :)
I like the job you have done but I think it really does NOT fit to Ashan.
Nevertheless, I would like to see aligator as neutral in H7 a lot !!!
By the way I forgot to mention it during the stream but we also have a Q&A with Terry Ray (the writer of H4) coming up in a few days here on the Shadow Council :)
@Marzhin93 : look here http://strawpoll.me/5197379 infernopolis placed last from all possible lineups. Why recreating it? Just because you have script ready? Please make some research before jumping on such big project. Please push more of such votes to discover what fans trully want. This site is dedicated for it after all.
nice stream Julien. So hyped for the game
That will be interesting, I look forward to it =) I loved Elwin and Shaera campaign! :3
I didn't like the the "Death" faction at all. But then I didn't like much about H4.
I DID like the Venom Spawns.
H4 had the best story writing of any Heroes game by FAR. Especially the Death campaign. It was so immersive. It's too bad we lose that with this obsession with cut-scenes.
Lost for words. Great stream. Anxiously waiting for those H4 Campains in H7.
,,Yo Dawg i herd you like Inferno so we put Inferno in yo Necropolis so you can play Inferno while u play Necro"
Idea from H4 and I believe that it was made as such only due to the fact that there were no money for 2 normal factions. Almost nobody likes H4 lore and yet this is what we will be getting ...
Well, while I was never a fan of Infernopolis mix, I have to admit that I'd like to see it again, in Ashan version. ;)
Some of you would like to "fire Ubi", but to be honest, I know no one better for it ... (and no, I dont say Ubi is perfect or good, I just say I know no better studio).
Free DLCs ... great job, Ubi!
...don't give them ideas D: ...
No ^^ but that is a great thing indeed. A big reason to not - not buy this game.
Thanks for the stream! It was great. Map Editor looks very promising.
Thanks for the Lost stories of Axeoth! And special thanks for JVC! It was awesome!
You're welcome :)
One of the last sentences of stream: "Thank you for creating Might and Magic: Heroes" :D
Actually I said Might & Magic and Heroes ;)
Although I did say Might & Magic Heroes 3 at some point ^^'
your eyes were sparkling when you spoke to him,
you seem so happy it was great to see,
were you anxious before?
where was the interview?
We filmed in a ballroom somewhere in Los Angeles.
Fortunately I had met JVC once before, back in 2013, when he came to our booth at Gamescom to try Might & Magic X, so I didn't squee too much this time :) It also helped that I had dinner with him (as well as "Sir" David Mullich and Neal "Foerdhal the Mad" Hallford) the day before the interview, which was great to break the ice.
Thanks to answer :)
Actually I was wondering the video is really great
but I didnt understand well if we would have some sort of tutorial to use the map editor as well?
Like some sort of maintenance pdf manual?
Dear Marzin thanks to polish fanbase i read the script of 7 part of heroes. First of all i was little dissapointed. Please tell me thats ddaloges are good written. And thanks for Jon Van Kanenghem. It was bestbest present for 20th anniversary.
@princessk2013: there's a built-in help file, but we also plan to do tutorial videos explaining how some things work. We only need to find the time to work on them :)
@sasholish: I'm not sure what you've read, I doubt it's the full script of the game. In any case, you'll have to play the game to experience the stories as they were meant to be experienced.
I am counting the days !
@Marzhin93 Nooo, it's not full script at all ;) I have seen it also on some forum, it's basically 2 sentence description of campaigns ;)
Of course it's was not full game script. Only some important detailes. But I was happy to hear about Axeoth. Kreegans and Undead in one town excellent idea. If you create new world of course. I read much about series through this months. And for me Heroes 4 become excellent game. With strange visual design, but excellent game.
@Marzhin: did you guys also talk about H3 HD? I'm curious to know what JVC's opinion on that would be :).
[sitebug] clicking on "best" doesn't work anymore.
It worked before I logged in
hey you still around man lol
did you try the beta btw?
You mean that best comments doesn't look like 'best' to you anymore? Oh, it's just a matter of your attitude lol
No I mean when I hit on best it doesn't shows the comments.
Okay.. Clearly I need more practice in trolling and sarcasm
yes, and also on the use of the lol, lol
Ugh... (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
For instance you could have said "Aww too bad the best comments doesn't work anymore, for once the feedback seems positive lol"
Haha! Now I see how it works! Thx for quick lesson :D
lol you're welcome, don't let the door hit you on the way out lol
I'm not on here often. Lost my interest completely really. Though talk of H4 campaigns sparked my interest.
yeah you already bought the game for 15 bucks anyway no? lol
Haha yep! Win for me. I'll probably play it down the track when patches are released.
Hi GalaadleHaut, is it working OK for you now?
Looks forward to seeing it..! Can't wait for those surprises..!
Yes! At last I can write something!
You have to be more confident with your "first"s. That way, if you get it, you'll look like a spammer who everyone loves to hate. On the other hand if you don't end up being first, then everyone can make fun of you because of your fail
I give you applauses for the Heroes 7 map editor!
Statues and other decorations! They make maps look gorgeous! Enormous positivity!
However it will take time to get used to handle properly the editor. But it has been so always. :)
The editor has really good variation of tools!
That is a great thing! I am really happy for the map editor!! :D
Heroes 5 map editor was good also. But somehow it was incomplete..
In H5 you had to write scripts to make awesome maps.
But the tools in Heroes 5 editor were also good.
And it was really nice to put buildings (objects) such as Dragon Pinnacle to decorate map.
Actually right now I have H5 map editor open and I am working on a map. :D
Heroes VII is going to be another good gama after part V which I loved. I love those similarities with part V. I hated part VI, which was unplayable for me because of constant crashes (shades of darkness edition). I love the idea of choosing some buildings and main creature. The game lacks one thing thogh: active abilities for creatures. I wish to see more actives on upgraded creatures. I hop in future for dwarves too.
I have one question for you...
Will the graphics of the game be different and better than in first and second Beta?
It would be great if the graphics in actual game would look as good as in the trailers! :)
With kind regards
HoMM fan from Finland
Will there be Might and Magic 11 for the 30th anniversary of the ancestor of all Might and Magic games?!?!
Please confirm! :)
I wish! But sadly, no MM11 planned for the moment.
Well Might and Magic X was released over year ago..
Games won't just "pup up" it takes time to make them fellow councillor. :)
