Nice teaser. What about spending resources into the game instead?
Ubisoft and "spending resources" are two things that don't go together :P
I believe it is too late for... mm... spending. The development process is finished.
I tried pointing out that earlier (it was another teaser video), but got shooed away by Ubilovers for "unprecedented amount of pesimism and negativity".
You know what they say, the one to laugh is the one that laughs last. And I guess Ubi will be laughing when they announce MMH8 development in 2016.
I still think 1 week is not enough for a proper beta. Please let it go on untill the release date and update it regurarely (you can even add the 2 remaining factions). Also you can change it to open beta/ demo at the end so that everyone can try it out.
Demo/Open beta? Now that would be a risky move to make! ;D
I wish they did, though.
dunno, i`ll still play it like 40/50 hours if i like it. That`s more compared to some full price games i`ve paid for.
You don't even know how much i played the Heroes 2 demo back then. I didn't have my own money so i couldn't buy it (but boy did i love buying games magazines because of the demos), i was too young for that. I think i was 10 back then. I did get pocket money, but that was not much.
Hah, I did the same thing waiting for the H3 release! Playing the same single small map with the only faction provided in the demo over and over again! And man, I definitely wasn't dissapointed:]
Well when i was a kid we got our first pc when i was about 13. I did have enough money back then. As i did have a nice job. Only a couple of hours per week but it payed for all my needs.
I still remember i played about any game i could get my hands on. Heroes 2 and 3 were awesome together with civilization 2 those days. + might and magic
I would like the beta to last 2 weeks. But then the release is just 4 weeks away when it ends. Plenty of time to start a witcher and xcom long war campaign.
Now it seems ALL our EFFORT was totally worthless. The only success of shadow council was vampire and lich redesign, all the other ideas and appeals were CANCELED, or, what is much worse, IGNORED.
Ugly butterfly black dragons, pointless heroes specializations (making heroes no longer unique), the lack of units abilities, strange planned skills (many heroes having access to offense and defense GM x only one destiny and no water magic GM) - only examples of the key problems with no Ubi answer
"lack of units abilities" - got more in H1-H5?
@MattiasMikli At least in HV you had an actual spellcasters, with a spellbook
Exactly. Units used to have enough abilities to differ from each other, in H5 at least (not speaking about H6).
It's not the number of unit abilities that's important, but rather the quality of those they possess. 2 quality unit abilities is enough.
It seems you have changed nothing from the last beta.
Even from this trailer, you can see:
- all icons are as small as before, hardly even to be seen
- the colours on the initiative bar are the same for all units (how can I differ my units easily?)
- the graphic quality is still quite low overall
- the icons of heroes specialization are the same so I guess the specializations are the same stupid ones
If you want cavil you will find a reason to cavil
About the icons :I tought there is a way to change the screen settiing ! I read this somewhere
I don´t want cavil. I want to see the game I have been looking forward to very much to be worth of it.
Thanks for response, but I am not sure if screen settings can really help. The icons are small with all the settings /or at least were in the first beta.
Сори за однотипные вопросы,но никак не пойму.Многие уже качают игру через юплей или стим,я активировал ключ беты,но ничего на почту не приходит и на юплее игры нету.Все нормально и стоит подождать еще или где то уже можно скачать?
Та же фигня. Ввёл вчера код тут на сайте. Написали мол молодец. В юплее никакой игры не появилось.
PO - TA - TO
Website_ tequila _ lol
In spite of the perceived flaws of the game, let's at least try having some fun playing this Beta 2, shall we? :)
If the AI works at all. Tha last time it was mentally disable. Felt like playing against yourself.
I just hope it won't be like that :
Monday - Closed beta is coming!
Tuesday - Closed beta is tomorrow!
Wednesday - Closed beta starts today!
Thursday - Did you played it ? Closed beta started yesterday !
I guess more probably:
Monday - Closed beta is coming!
Tuesday - Closed beta is tomorrow!
Wednesday - Closed beta is today!
Thursday - Second beta delayed due to technical issues, stay tuned for more info!
Next monday - Closed beta on september 29th
guys what u think if ghost would be not a dead women banshee but ghost of dead warrior like in lotr or warrior's ghost in flying armor. some pictures:
Those would require new models and that's goes against Ubilimbic recycling policies
well i mean in h8, don't expect more changes in h7 necropolis.
the question is: would u like this kind of ghost in place of banshee in h8 ?
Actually it would be so awesome, but with this look, Ghost would deserve at least elite rank :D
Lol, it must be really bad with Heroes VII, if we start to discuss H8 before H7 premiere xD
I like the idea, as an elite named Haunted Armor/Haunted Warrior.
The concept of the current ghost fits the idea of a tormented enslaved soul, which I feel is a lot more suited for the ghost creature than, in the worst case, a LotR ripoff.
However, the idea of taking the soul of a dead warrior and binding it to a physical shell, like an armor, is a pretty badass idea for an elite...
Yes, I like them. The second pic is my favorite
8 hours trying to load comments. Good job on this web site. Omg....
And... where is my beta mail ? : (
Beta is coming...
I side with the Targaryens.
Fire and Blood!
lol just no lol
Please not :D

O.o Dungoen mount looks like a blind and wingless Ubi-Black Dragon xD
What an ugly rat... :f
You don't need eyes when you live is the dark underground
Awwwww, how can you say that - it looks so cute! ;DD
But i like iiiiit !
Hehehe, rats can be quite cute indeed xD Not sure about this one though, or if I like it as a mount :D
I must say I like it - it's pretty well animated, as ugly as an underground creature featuring as mount for a somewhat evil faction should be;DD, is not a horse-wannabe looking thing... Only issue I have with it is way too lively colours - that's not how a _blind_ underground creature should be.
Urgh, so Dungeon hero mount is also recycled? Not that ugly looking thing again!
Many bigger problems are here I think
Also, it is better than horse :)
Sure, I never said that there weren't other problems on the game. Actually there are a lot of problems, recycling units being just one ...
Btw, I would prefer a a horse. But what they could have done was give a raptor or another kind of lizzard, to resemble grim rider from H5.
While we're waiting for beta (or we're not =P ), Marzhin kindly agreed to answer some lore questions (regarding Ashan).
Those questions were gathered from SC and forums (on different languages) over a period of several months and mainly deal about recent retcons and the "legacy" of H5's creatures
*The last question very much holds no meaning unless you're from Poland or Russian community.
Form that poll I can deduce that 83% of the fanbase have a functioning brain, the other 17% have been completely erwannized :P
Jejeje is so funny!! Yes i like!!
~250 votes that sort of means something, nevertheless its gona be ignored as rest of the feedback, I wonder what they are planing to do with all the feedback they get from beta2, I guess they are short of toilet paper ...
Site seems to be working again.
It's another miracle performed by the great Spider Messiah Erwan!
Blessed by the spiders!
