"Celebrate with us the upcoming release of the title!"
Yes... with this unfinished website? Can you please first complete this website and then do any celebrations?
Things to do:
-Necropolis, Stronghold, Sylvan and Dungeon Warfare units
-All factions tech-trees
Yeah, I wonder what's the excuse to keep this website unfinished...
give us proper creature specialists.
So much clamoring for "proper" specializations with ZERO definition of what that would look like.
that would look like in the other homm games, like how it worked and how we like it lol
@broui: It was expalined on every hall of heroes article and more. Currently it is more problem of willingnes, because they must know what we want
I got my "First Step" achievement on November 3rd, 2014. Holy moly, it's been almost a year since I first entered these Council Halls...young, unspoiled and unknowing. For some of you, that full year of SC has passed already. I must say, I'm glad to have been around here with you, talking, exchanging ideas, getting all worked up over one thing or another, trying to extinguish the fires when the heat became unbearable. We had good times, bad times, fun times, sad times. It's almost at an end...
...unless this blog and the comment section remains active, of course, which I hope it does. It should be expanded with options to upload custom made levels, mods and all, so that everyone can still benefit from being around here. A proper forum would come in handy, in that case. And an edit button too :P. The game's turning out to be just what I like it to be, and I know this opinion isn't shared by many. What many wanted has not come to pass as much as they'd hoped, but why not accept it now?
I like it as it is, but there are things that would make me like it even more. We've all shown our passion, our dedication, and on more than one occasion also our frustration, and some of it has been heard. People say that voices have not been heard enough, and I agree that the first idea of a community-supported game development may not have worked out in the end. But still, Marzhin and Nox were and are always around to answer questions and do streams. There is interaction, and everyone KNOWS.
...which, I think, will definately benefit the development of the future installments and patches for the current one.
We'll meet in the game, Marble , Amen !
Yea... Maybe I can hope to see my beloved (fairy-, rust-, azure-, crystal) dragons back in the game... It would be so nice...
Agree with every word.
I beg for option to upload maps to this site. With ratings, comments and all..
I hope this Council will continue. For the future of this game, for its datadiscs ... maybe we will get some new votes about them?
Looking forward to these streams and how they will showcase the game. Even if some features leave much to be desired and even if the devs stubbornly don't want to listen as far as those are concerned, I do hope that on the team's priority list lie fixing bugs, AI, optimization and connectivity issues to at least ensure a working and stable game. You said you learned from Heroes 6's mistakes, here's another opportunity to prove it.

@BeYo_OnD: Question is what do they consider H6 mistakes...
I was enjoying the calm before the storm actually.
Little calm to be had, I think. There's still nothing about the War Machines from the other factions on this blog, and likely some lost tale yet to be told. I hope they'll reveal those in the coming week, and end with Limbic Entertainment Part 2 :P.
War Machines = Warfare units.
And a quick peek at the state of development just before release might reveal some surprises :).
Yeah, they need to show us the shooting liches :D
They announced the preload at 2PM CEST. They didn't deliver.
Grab your pitchforks people.

Just read Marblethrone comment and decided to leave one of my own (you know the other side of the coin =P )
I have to say it has been quite an experience, I wish I could say that the game is going to be awesome but I just don't believe it, at least not quite yet.
It's obvious that it will be better than H6 but that's not really an accomplishment, isn't it? Maybe after a few DLCs and expansions it will turn out a great game because there is a lot of room for improvements, but only time will tell.
For the time being I won't buy the game yet (I learned my lesson with the H6 release fiasco) I'll wait some months or even a year till it's actually playable (don't want to deal with the initial bug fest and unbalanced game).
PS: Long live the Sandro revolution, all hail Sandro! #GROS, #VN, #FixTheSkillwheel, #FixTheSpecializations, #JVC, #FU, #FELB and all our other beloved hashtags.
I feel sad every time I see somebody leaving. It is like to give up the fight.
I'm not leaving yet (unless I get banned again), I'm simply stating my beliefs about how this game looks at the moment.
But yes, I will eventually leave this blog considering that I won't buy the game in the near future. Once the game is out everyone will be discussing aspects of the game (like strategies, heroes builds, town builds, etc) and I'll have no knowledge to take part in any of those discussions.
I think many people (including me) will we waiting.
I think it might be very live here, some players and not-yet players, discussing to each other.
very beautiful and sad words ....
I do not throw hashtags
If you have enjoyed H6, you will probably enjoy H7 too because H7 seems to be a better game.
If you have not enjoyed H6, you can enjoy H7 instead because H7 seems to be a better game.
So unless you are a genvunner you can enjoy the game...
Who is genvunner? :)
It's a person who likes first generation of Pokémon only (maybe also the second one, but nothing more.)
Why isn't the rest of the warfare units released yet..?
HI mediczero!__МОЛОТ ВЕДЬМ
I missed you!
You've done your pre-order (HoMM 7) ?
Nope, not yet...
I don't suppose you're going to surprise us with H5-like specializations and a remodeled black dragon are you? *sigh*
The former one is much more possible to happen. Anyway, both are very unlikely to happen.
IF the former occurs, it would be with expansions or patches.
As to the latter, why would they spend money for remodeling a dragon when they could spend it elsewhere improving and expanding the game? Seriously people, let the blackie be.
Why is everyone complaining about the Black Dragon? There are more "strange" looking units like the Strider that would need adjustment first.
Also regarding specialization: It's not like H5 had just better ones... there were lots of Heroes that were spell "Experts" which we have in H7 again. I personally also think the Spezialitions are fine as they are. They don't matter that much so I always pick the Hero picture/Class combination that looks the best.
This is the exact problem. ATM classes are a primary factor that differentiates heroes between themselves, hence classes are the way they are. Is this right? I don't think so. Class system is flawed because of not so great variety between them and limited number of skills per class, so they don't fulfill their primary role - differentiating heroes. Because of that, a comeback of powerful heroes' spetialties would be more than welcome.
I disagree about the strider, I think its creepy and weird fits the dark elves just fine. The black dragon on the other hand not only looks like a butterfly with a spiky overdesigned head, but it's glowing in purple/yellow and that doesn't fit the stealth theme of Ashan dungeon at all. The final nail in the coffin is that it's re-used from H6, which is something that they shouldn't have done at all for anything.
And as for specializations, yes there were heroes that specialized in spells, but they still improved with hero level and gave you a sense of progression, and also some of them were more than just "this spell gets slightly more powerful" for example Faiz could deal damage with vulnerability and Lethos could poison enemies before the battle even began, whereas in H7 it's just "you get x bonus power in y school for all eternity and it never improves" or "x spell is cast as if your skill level...
is one higher, which later on either becomes useless or blocks you from getting a nice perk. And then there were heroes with cool unique things like Vinrael's experience gain increasing. And specializations might not matter much in H6 or H7, but they certainly did in H5. Some heroes were even considered overpowered and banned because of their specializations (like deleb for example). The bottom line is that in H5 they made heroes feel unique and rewarding to use, but in H7 they're 1 time bonuses
for SLOW AI BLALBLABLABALA naysayers:
-they ALLREADY showed a much faster ai then beta2 ai, within their latest stream. total 50 seconds to end turn of 8 player map. thats not all, they also said it will be even faster then that.
for skillwheel fetishboys:
-not everyone loves h5, and this is a new title in series. you requested a change, you get your answer. its been MONTHS and you still bring this topic up knowing its allready rejected. why the heck are you still pushing this? DENIAL. if its such a big, very important problem from your perspective then simply dont play. stop making people go away, newcomers should not see and give up on buying this product based upon your hardcore fetishes.
for bug fixing issues:
-i am one the concerned ones in this topic ut whole point of this article to invite us to see bug fixes. in other word, to calm us down by showing the progress they made. thats a wondewrful thing because "actions speak louder then words." i know many of us have concerns about this, so instead of doomsaying, lets just wait for stream to see with our own eyes.
The gameplay and battle feel extremely slow in contrat to H5. Strategy, tactics, or slow animations. Fast animations does not work as supposed to. No settings like in H5. H5 is a dream for me.
*contrast * animations don't *battles
:D i am ahead of you this time.
CHARGE THE SHIELDS, HATERS ARE COMING! they will curse, mock and upvote each other to harm the series.
-SHIELDS ARE FULL CHARGED CAPTAIN.
-PREPARE FOR ENGAGEMENT!
Cleg: The thing is I am not hater. And you know that.
Bugs, the AI, and crashed are a fact.
Why do we have to take all of it? Why do we have to accept it?
Actually, I am a lover of HOMM series, but not MMH :) I even never hated HOMM V, which was UBI release etc. But MMH? It is too diffrent. That is why the name was changed, too.
Actually, I love TotE. But I was also OK with H5 vanilla. I loved the first dwarves expansion, so it was a progress to love the game. Why didn't they continue to develop and expand its core features?
It's not that much of new skill-system to be exact. It's about 80% h6 skill-system and 20% h5 while missing all the good stuff. And the reason h5 system gets brought up so much is because it was Great. What we experienced with h7 beta and h6 with the expansion is no replayability and boring system with cookie-cutter builds.
AI: you are right it is faster, but it wasn't smarter. Both sides are needed so Let's hope they managed to make good AI in the couple weeks.
I trust most bugs are fixed too
I meant fast, dynamic battles, including mulitplayers, not exactly the AI :)
Even thought, the AI was pretty not funcional in H7. And H7 should show some bigger improvements, not the AI from 1999. Don't you think so?
1. Your point about the AI is spot on.
2. I wouldn't call people "skill wheel fetishists". The skill system needs work. It can be improved and keep to their vision.
3. There will be bugs in any game. But, it is reasonable to assume there will be many fewer bugs in the release (and post) than Beta 2. Not worried.
PS - I might agree that there is some H5 fetishism... Very over rated. Hated the graphics then and now. Wasn't good until ToE.
"they ALLREADY showed a much faster ai then beta2 ai, within their latest stream. total 50 seconds to end turn of 8 player map"
- Was that the first turn of that map? If it's anything like Rome2TW, that time will increase with each passing turn.
- Considering I spend less time taking my own turn, more than half the time playing the game would be spent waiting.
- Safe to say that most fans don't have computers that match the speed of people in the business of making games
