Here my name is Marblethrone. You may add 'Vàilan' to that, as is written in my biography.

Dear ElB,

As the creative director, this post is DIRECTLY MEANT FOR YOU as being in charge means being responsible. I will remain polite and civilized even though I think your creativity is leading the game in the wrong way.

It's said you try to stay true to HOMM's legacy. What a result! Look at this mess! Look at the comments! Every new post get the most of us pissed, sad, disappointed. It seems that you guys read the comments without understanding their meaning.

So please try harder :)

17
tiim2011 Strażnik
February 06, 2015 03:16:01

About the graphics: H3 adopted kind of a gothic style which I think most of us loved. H5 was a lil more colorfull and cartoonish but we could feel this legacy. What about H7?

Haven townscreen atmosphere is cartoonish. Just compare colors with H5 townscreen and you'll understand. This huge gold statue is a nonsense. The walls are protecting 20% of the city, and are located by the cliffs. In my opinion, the only good thing is the red roofs, as a legacy to H1.

17
tiim2011 Strażnik
February 06, 2015 03:26:24

Same for the academy, which has changed a lot since H3: no gothic anymore but more oriental-inspired, and really impressive in H5 (you see, some changes were successfull!). Same for necro, getting greener and greener from H5 to H7.

I have to say, link a faction with a bad idea because it's like at the beginning of the game, I can't choose my color, which is the first thing you choose... since H1.

Ps: And I didn't speak about the necro townscreen because yesterday was enough.

17
tiim2011 Strażnik

**** Link a faction with 1 color

tiim2011 Strażnik
February 06, 2015 03:34:23

I mean, this graphics "juvenilization" process is a nonsense. HOMM is 20 years old. A large proportion of fans are adults, those who discovered this awesome game with H5 (and they are numerous, which is great the game's future) are now late teenagers.

But there are, to my knowledge, to less-than-10-years-old gamers! So please. Stop it. Now.

17
tiim2011 Strażnik
February 06, 2015 03:41:44

You will not expand the fans community by making a more childlish or simplistic franchise. By this way you will only disappoint us and make us leave, runaway, disapear.

You will expand the fans community by remaining true to HOMM, unique and different, and by making the right decisions (which is obviously not the case if you look at the last days comments)

And please stop telling us this is a budget matter. Because it's not. There are plenty of midieval fantasy games with awesome graphics. And they don't the same financial power as Ubi has.

But if YOU NEED MORE TIME, SO BE IT. I can wait 1,2,3 more years if it helps the game being better. Because you won't satisfy us by releasing a poor, cartoonish game in 2015.

And don't accuse of frensh bashing... because i'm french !

Well even after saying that you acknowledge our problems and still doing things the way we dont like it at all is obviously going to make us really mad.
This councilwas a great chance to make the game a really great Heroes game if you would have truly listened to us
But you guys have too much pride to admit that things are going a really bad way

I guess maybe now you will just delete comment with high criticism so the comments will be more in your favour

25
Antalyan Pradawny
February 05, 2015 17:55:40

I think that it is caused only by money. I am worried that Ubisoft wants the game as soon as possible (to earn money) and as cheap as possible. So, some things like 3D towmscreens or different mounts or at least new units can´t be make.

16
Elisabeth.... Wierny
February 05, 2015 18:04:29

Antalyan, I agree on Ubisoft wants the game as soon as possible! Heroes VI is released in Oct. 2011, and then after a short time they announced that Heroes VII was on the way! I think they've realised Heroes VI is a failure..and they want to be effective and release Hereos VII to nullify those negative emotions amongst players...They probably think quantity is the solution but actually it's the quality that counts!

14
Zatrakus95 Rycerski
February 05, 2015 18:12:16

@Hierophant987: It's not actually the case of not accepting them but not giving us any evidence of it. If they gave us pictures of for example reworked Heaven town screen that would really calm people down.

@Zangetas: I like visuals and lore but maybe I am weird case.

15
Zangetas Szalony
February 05, 2015 18:16:38

@Zatrakus95

sure there are people who like it this way but those are only about 10%
and yes I get that that 10% is people too etc. but i don't think those people would hate things our way
And yes there are sure people who would hate things the true heroes way but thats even less people
And since Ubi wants to make money they should listen to the majority of us
And most Heroes players play since H2 or H3

14
Zatrakus95 Rycerski

February 05, 2015 18:59:49

@Hierophant987 Yes, I understand them that they want the game as soon as possible, and I really want this game as soon as possible too (actually in a best way I want it NOW:D).
Nevertheless, it is their mistake that the H6 development was soo long and then it was quite catastrophical after so long time. So, they should listen to our ideas (but they should do it before they had made these not so good townscreens). I also think that several more months to get better game would be better.

25
Antalyan Pradawny
February 05, 2015 19:03:27

Cause Heroes saga is my most favourite PC game ever, I am really interested in this development cause I want a great game made with high effort. I don´t want to have a game with a lot of lacks and mistakes. Nevertheless I believe that they learned a lot from h6 and they are doing their best to give us that game, even when they have not so much time.

Marzhin93: "@darioro: Did you have a specific question for me?."

Well I do. My question or rather questions are: Are you satisfied with the quality of the game so far (especially the recyling-programm, Academy artworks, Necropolis creatures, townscreen-artworks) and what is the plan to raise the quality?

PS: Wrote some statement (check best comments). Me and the people who upvoted it, deserve a fair answer!
Thank you

Marzhin93 Pradawny
February 05, 2015 22:43:57

I believe the game will be great. Now, there is still a lot of work to do. We're still far from release, and many assets we share with you on this website are unfinished. Even the screenshots are filled with placeholders.
I think the townscreen look much better in-game, with atmospheric effects and animations, and the buildings appearing as you build them. The "still life" treatment does not do them justice.
(to be continued...)

Why wont you answer my question about this post ???

20
Marzhin93 Pradawny
February 05, 2015 22:47:30

I believe reusing so many assets for Necropolis was a mistake, but we've heard the community's outcry and we'll do our best to find a solution to make things better. But it's important to remember that creature art is super expensive so there will definitely be a trade-off. We'll probably have to sacrifice something, so we'll have to be careful.

20
Marzhin93 Pradawny
February 05, 2015 22:49:01

Last but not least, it's also worth noting that art production is a pipeline. Artists are not available all the time, so when we decide to redo an asset, it's at the end of the pipeline, which is why the change is not seen before all the other assets that precede it in the pipeline are done.

21

Marzhin93, isn't it possbile to ask the community for donations and such? You'd also be able to tighten the bond between the community and the devs when you ask for donations, since you will also have to keep in close contact with the community as what is being done with the donation money.

I believe that we should make this a great game together. Just ask some help from the community. But the donation is entirely optional of course!

17
shop4D26AC5FB 
February 05, 2015 22:52:56

Thanks you for the answer.

"I believe the game will be great."

Of course you believe that. You want to sell your product so it's the only legimate answer ;)

Still I'd rather see some self critisicm, then repeating over and over the same verbiages.

My points of critics are:

townscreens: too many different styles (Animee, Fantasy) + unfitting buildings, logic mistakes.
recyling (especially H6): H6 was a desaster. Why not erase it and start freshly over.

About the art design. Your marketing strategy is working with the community. So why not?

I have seen here a lot of talented artists. You basically would have gotten work for plus the legitimation working with the community.

E.g. Elv: You decide 3/5/10/bazillion artworks made by fans, community could vote which will be it. I know its not that easy but still, I believe there are better ways to proceed marketing strategy.

Last but not least thanks...

It can have two sides, this donation thing.

If things start going towards what some of the donators don't like, they'll surely start thinking that they have more rights than others, start flaming and arguing hither and thither. It can help with budget, yes, but I do think that it can also create a branch of dangerous relation there as well.

@sussugamon

While I do have to agree with you on that, it's been the same with kickstarters.
Many people back a game up and thus - have simply donated money for a game they seem to like.

They do know they can "control" development to a certain degree and do realise completely they cannot have everything they want.

Yet, kickstarters work and have worked perfectly in the past.

Well the resound they are trying to copy past as many assents as possible is probably because of UBI. I think UBI is forcing them to make the game as cheap as they can will still making a okay game.

Must game developers, defenly when it is some what smaller teams like this one, then they really do want to make the game has good as they can because it is there honor and there pride. so i believe marzhin then i say stuff like that.

and then i to will say good night.

I can verify the thing about not in it for the money. While not video game designers, I personally know several game designers, not giving any names, and oftentimes they need extra income from another source. So most have two jobs, one for money, and one they do because they love it.

@Marzhin93: Seriously, thank you for the responses here. While I am not entirely reassured by your comments about the town screens, it is so nice to at least hear back from you about them. I would be more assured by your comments if I hadn't already experienced Heroes 6. Those towns had noticeably different textures from the adventure map, were disorganized, and seemed much more suited to freemium browser games. The in-game experience with them was bad, and these screens seem very similar.

25
Antalyan Pradawny

I really respect your work and believe you do your best, but you should also try to change the other ubisoft services to work so well. For example, I have some technical problems with H6 and NOBODY FROM YOU GREAT UBI SUPPORT ANSWERED me, even I made several issues and asked again and again. Still no answer (I started to ask in the half of January!)
If they cannot help me, it is okay, but they should at least try it.

If the whole team is reading the comments as you say, it wouldn't take many extra minutes if you actually replied once in a while regarding some topics and give vision you have. All we got is your word on that you read the posts, but we can't see that in action. We get no replies and it doesn't show in your actions. You gave us like half a year ago peek at academy and haven towns, yet nothing has changed really. In fact you still have same problems in necro town... This reflects poorly on you.

28
ramborusina 
February 05, 2015 21:01:54

You have also had lots of contructive criticism and ideas on HC forums, did you listen? No, you still went ahead knowing the problems. Town-screens have kept the same problems, none of the fixes got applied in already presented screens nor the new necro screen. You knew great deal of people hated the h6 necro, especially lich, vampire and lamasu. Your solution was to copy-paste them, really? You read and listen to us? I'm sorry, but I have hard time seeing and believing that...

28

February 05, 2015 21:08:50

The best thing you could do would be to actually interact with us! Have a live streaming session(s) where you talk about your ideas, how to implement them and what problems they might have. Collect feedback from us, give us voting options in these streams so you see how people react/like your ideas and solutions. When you say you want community involved, what would be better way? Currently it sounds and feels to me that you have a vision of more grand h6 because you keep bombarding us with h6!

Seriously, if they want to do whatever they want, then that is their prerogative. But saying we matter while showing through their actions that we don't is insulting. Don't fool yourself, this site is here to serve Ubi by drumming up hype. It is a money-making tool, nothing more.

As I said, no need to be 3D if 2D is well designed. I wonder if they did more simple things, if they could have added another faction upon launching, conserving mechanics and cutting half of these animations, glowing things or whatever.

It is matter of artist. The cheapest game can have the most awesome minimalistic design, and expensive large project also can have the poorest one. Limbic was not lucky, when they were picking artist for their towns.

Also it shows that developers dont consider townscreens as important feature. This person who was hired, was certainly presenting his previous art creations, while applying for job. So, maybe his previous work was good and he did lazy one this time. But I dont belive this because towns shows fatal design errors = lack of knowledge, skills. It is not just lazy, but also amateurish. Or he shoved his poor artworks and get hired, because nobody cared that much. Or maybe he was friend of somebody :P

I believe devs are doing their best at this game but the results are not satisfying at all. There must be smth terribly wrong in managment. Someone who has invented the lore after H5 (which was good, not perfect but submitted pretty well) is doing big decisions that most of the community dont like and he/she still continue pushing them in game. Cmon Spidermania 20 years after war of the broken staff? Design of townscreen what doesnt match the design of whole game. Recycling the worst from H6?

I am quite dissapointed about this game. I suspect Ubi to give us Heroes 6 2.0.
Get inspiration from what most of the cummunity wants and this game can be your gold mine. More time and cash you invest in, bigger income you gain from it, pretty simple. It would be better to have release date at 2016 than exuses like, we havent enough time or money. I know it isnt the devs mistake. But producers cant have exuses about half-made product.

You know Matooob, I remember few article back Ubi-Nox wrote that they are working very hard! Simply I can't see it!
It's not even that I might like it or not, it's just looking at illogical townscreems I'm asking where's this hard-work? Or even better, copy/paste units from H6 that must be very very hard to do, and very time consuming!

25
RobvD84 Szalony
February 06, 2015 16:35:30

Well it is quite simple really. Even H6 did not just copy paste, so that says enough about what they are doing now.

23
Matooob 
February 06, 2015 16:36:28

Well i think the Townscreens improved by fans were much more than acceptable. They spent several hours at photoshop and results were great. So why they cant add this in game, the guys who made it would be very glad. I believe they would also do it for free, maybe a cd as reward for their work would be symphatetic gift. Or if they want in game only stuff made by themselves, lets spend several hours at photoshop or another program and IMPROVE IT.

14
CarnelianUK Wspaniały
February 06, 2015 16:39:53

@darioio The copy/pasting of units from H6 for the Necropolis (which they pretty much admit was a mistake) is a fair accusation, but to accuse them of not working hard just because you don't like the art-work for the town screens strikes me as being terribly rude. Clearly someone has put time and effort into them, even if the results do not appeal to you personally.

They ARE NOT. Constructive critisicm happened. +20 000 posts over 177 topics were covered at HC since the very beginning of the MMH7 announcement. + they were the NUMEROUS complaints of MMh6 Necropolis at that time. They COULD have done something. They DIDN'T. And know they play the victims because we rage.

@GalaadleHaut: They have listened and changed things after our feedback. Just because they don't change everything every single person complain about does not mean that they don't take our worries with ease. We have a serious and talented team building this game, and they have out of sharing the love for this game given us a chance to vote and give opinions. Your opinions might be a minority and thus never win, but frankly that should neither be mine or the developers problem.

the team knows our opinions, but we need support them too, to create a better game, saying what is bad , and what is good. All post shows work in progress and its no final content, they can still change things, but they need a time to change those errors.

The phrase "work in progress" loses all meaning after it has been slapped on every town screen and, rather than seeing progress, we see the same bad formula used over and over. Or even showing the exact same screen again a month later, as is the case with Haven.

And why are people losing their calm? Because this site was created with the idea that our comments would matter. So far, they haven't. They say we matter to placate us. That isn't listening. That makes people mad.

If you have the chance to loudly say how you want the game to look, use this chance, but not become a fanatic. After all, don't forget that is just a game, for God sake!

Think of it like this way. We yell to inform the devs we don't like this feature. If they decide to keep it, as well as other things, people will lose interest, meaning lesser profits, which in turn means possibility of no DLC-s and less budget to make next game.

Remember H5 starting small disaster and the way H5 ToE improved the game. I don't say is perfect, but give them a chance. Honestly, I don't really care if the spider is green, yellow or red, as long Ubi will not lose other 3 months just to keep everybody happy :).

@Nekro I dunno how much of academy was actually done as in programmed, but they could've given their own vision of academy rather than copy from BlackHole. So much here is taken from h6 it's rather sad to me. Devs should give their own vision or take on things, not copy it from elsewhere. So far I see huge lack of creativity for h7, but instead I see lots of recycling!

Seriously guys I see 4 paths for you:

1) Find yourself lives and hobbies other than trolling

2) Accept the game as it is and try to help by leaving civil critique

@Denisa I partially agree about haven. I always see it as the safe boring faction that has the foot-soldier, archer, 2nd soldier, beast(generally griffin),priest, cavalry and angel. It's not like it's truly limited to knighthood though. They COULD make them dark faction of thieves, brigands, slavers, murderers, mercenaries etc. It doesn't have to be story of the glorious empire, it's just something they choose to do.

@ramborusina Id rly love the assassin/mercenary units as part of haven. Just to give it some distinct feel. They could throw in some mages, like Desciples did and it worked out well. Or make the priests more powerful mages than support casters. Or make the female defender unit be a offensive caster!

I fail to see how Ramboursina was trolling. All I saw was him saying that. Yes that's a good thing about Disciples and past Heroes, but not 7, there is too much recycling in 7.

I'd say that that is constructive criticism. It's saying look, you can be great, you did it once and can do it again. But don't just recycle. Especially nor from one as recent as 6 that also was generally disliked.

28
ramborusina 
February 08, 2015 18:58:05

@Zatra I was speaking on general level. I didn't say a word about disciples as I haven't even played the series. And maybe it's you who should quit the shadow council when you can't accept anything bad being said about/regarding h7 even if it's the truth. I've read a lot of your comments to different people and you use very passive-aggressive messages saying to people to quit this council because you don't like what they say.

@ramborusina, denisa016: My comments follow simple logic- you express lack of interest in MMH7 as it is and this site exists to give people who are interested in it ability to shape it and help devs in thier work. Thus I don't see any purpose in you leaving commnets here.

And I am trolling? You picked topic of different franchise for no other reason but to point out that devs work is in your opinion bad. It doesn't help espacially when townscreens are marked "work in progress".

28

February 08, 2015 19:24:45

@Zatra You do realize that you're at the very gist of the problem. We have given the constructive comments and expressed what we expect from the series. We have told them what we don't want from the series for years on forums and I've been here on this site since the start. Almost nothing gets through, only times we can say we've been truly heard is when we had #GURS-campaign which was pretty much spamming lot of time and when the outrage with necro reveals came.
