If people want to continue to show their support for Ubisoft, by all means go nuts. But don't try to lecture other fans about why they should be happy and thankful. It's becoming quite clear that you do not understand the angst felt by fans one bit.
So many messages coming from disappointed fan are being deleted anyway.
there is nothing to say other than there is nothing to say.
"Best Comment" nomination ))
Ah, but there is something to say.
Give us more articles!
Merci pour ces informations ! Est-il envisagé de fournir des articles de gameplay cette semaine (articles sur les magies manquantes et la métamagie par exemple) en attendant que les devs fassent leur travail ?
Thank you for this information! Are there plans to provide gameplay articles this week (on missing items and magic Metamagic for example) until the devs do their job?
It was told below there may be at least one skill article this week.
Thanks for your answer Ubi-Nox :-)
@UBI NOX: We need all the skills and magic schools revealed before beta starts. That is what you promised us :) (except those related to Sylvan and Dungon)
I must admit I don't remember promising the full Skill listing before the beta launch :( (but to "accelerate publication"). However my brain is overheating a bit for a few weeks so I apologize if I forgot it. I will provide more of them for sure and you will have complete list of all content of the beta next week :)
@UBI NOX: Last weekend you told us (you were quite active here from your home place) that you will publish all the rest skills and magic schools on Monday before beta starts :) And today is already Wednesday :)
And you couldn't publish them because you were at home :) Now remember? :)
Publishing the list will be easy, full details might be really time consuming. Will do my best thus! I would hate to break a promise :(
OK, thanks. Just to remind you, you said
"On Monday all information will be available directly on the game so I am sure you will able to discover them. Finally, there is no link between people in charge of this website and the game development."
and something like this ;) although I feel sorry that you have to do this all by yourself, maybe Moshi will be so nice and will help you :)
>"Hello Bongowombat, we will publish on Monday a full listing of the content of the beta :) (all names: spells, skills, heroes etc.)."
Ok now I see :p So yes it was a listing I promised not full details :p It was suppossed to go along with the release of the beta :( But I will share full details for some of them until next week then :) (the more I am humanly able to provide with all other tasks I have to handle right now!)
Ну-ка все вместе , уши развесьте !
Лучше по-хорошему , хлопайте в ла-до-ши наааааам ! )))
I put this comment into google translate so I could read it since it was getting some likes, but it comes back as:
Come together, ears hang!
Top-good, clap la-shek to naaaaaam!
You was very close. It's something like:
Come together, hang your ears (listen open-mouthed)!
Better clap in hands for us!

SYLVAN : heroes :)
- Magic male hero : http://i.imgur.com/Scry7NH.jpg
- Magic female hero: http://i.imgur.com/DClyPE9.jpg
- Might male hero: http://raptorvee.c0.pl/Vindictus/Kai.png
If the model of female hero will look like the one you posted I will be totally in love with project.
The magic heroes would be amazing if they looked like that. The might one reminds me of MMH6 Tears Might Stronghold hero tho
Some other Sylvan related arts ;)
Amazon subfaction would be definetly welcome :) elves/swamp/amazon all 3 forest based, swamp evil, elves good and amazon neutral aligment. That would also resolve the problem of male/female druid.
looks very fake. male druid is nearly exactly same wth h5 one, female hero looks like she jumped from a night club or something, which was another h5 art thing, in total i didnt even liked those first ones.
the picture that from wizards of the coast is what i liked most. for me a druid, a true nature related unit-hero should look like that in art style.
other ones are ripp of from unnecesarry sexy low quality warcrafty styles.
what i like from h7 is, it has good taste in art, just like h3.
that donkey ear elf model, cute looking wolf etc etc.. those have %0 possibility to be in h7. and thats a god thing. raise your expectations, h5 art was terrible and you will meet better sylvan now.
keep in mind that i m not only voicing my own personal taste, i exactly know what h6 and h7 do with art style, and i m trying to tell you what can be real and what can be not, my personal taste about them are, just, on the same track with it.
@Minastir @Black_Weaver Nice! i hope the Heroes VII models will be like these arts :)
I WANT SYLVAN NOW! xD
Cleglaw, of course it is fake. He just showed his favourite ideas :-)
@blueraven9, did you like that green dragon? Personally I can't imagine what could look better.
@Cleglaw Well you don't know as much as you think you do, this female druid is from Ashan compendium, this book came after H6 and the art of it correct with the 'lore' and i did covered her boobs in photoshop, the male druid is from M&MX and not from HV, the game was made by Limbic, I'm just gonna let you add 2 + 2
I have one question to UBI: Is there any chance that management and game leads will be changed? From organisational point of view H6 was total management failure and I dont want to be bad, but what happened on monday was another fiasco. Not to mention that there is absolutely no vision about future of this game (as future expansions are not even confirmed) and game direction is also way too off. Whole budget planing seems out of place. I think this game deserves better "head of the party".
This I can support at least to some extent. There is still the chance to change the pre-selected skills which will be the doom of this game and especially it's longevity. If they do that I don't have too many complaints for the time being.
Well I promised myself to not get into arguing about game content itself as that is lost case, but from ocasions like this it can be seen the very low profesionality of game leaders and whole management that sort of also indeed descends to game content. Look on projects like WoG or H5.5, sure fan made - but why despite obsolete graphics I like them more than what is going on over here? Vision of H7 creators doesnt go beyond first day of game release. HOMM franchise deserves better.
Haven't checked the wog or tried the H5.5 but the H5.5 and the hota for H3 are much better on idea level. Installed the hota and have played it a bit, really good. Purely on that basis I anticipate being playing the H5.5 some time in the future instead of H7.
What is WoG?
WoG (wake of gods) is fan made mod for H3 whose enhancement list is endless. Since it is in H3 engine it is sort of obsolete graphically. I dont know if hota already contains wog enhancements (in wog there is stuff like stack experience and battle commanders (hero in battlefiend)) - havent played H3 recently. But overall direction is certainly better as in H7.
I haven't noticed stack experience or hero on battlefield. It's on the traditional Heroes basis. Really good in it from the few stints I've had with it. The classic skill system and magics and all have their advantages. The game remains so simple to create and to learn and you can have a good game with basically any people in no time. Straight forward and fun.
Though I prefer the H5 style skill system, the abilities inside skills and the factionalized abilities inside the skills. More point to the fact of having different classes of heroes inside the game.
One of many enhancements in wog is actuall skill "rebalance" making usefull even most unwanted skills. You can check :
Whether it is a wheel or a random one (with weighed probabilities having different options for different hero classes on level ups) I don't really mind. The wheel is logical now that I finally got it few weeks ago (just keeps on turning), the random one is a bit more difficult to create unorthodox heroes. The latter would support this current lore perfectly.
Personally I don't have a real preference but I'm slightly biased over the latter.
The rebalance is a good one since there are/were few weaker ones. Offence > Armorer for example. And I wouldn't go for evil eye or mysticism if they wouldn't come from a hut.
...I think the rebalance means something else in this case...
anyway, nice to know one more, thanks logic. I have to pour myself on these someday as I know I can do plenty for these on the code side, I'm just a bit reluctant to go programming anymore without a salary.
I don't think they will discuss this type of thing publicly with you.
@ bitmaid : well probably not, but the bug is planted. Gives them something to think about (if they even read this blog). Anyway unless someone from their leads doesnt resign on their function I guess not much will change.which is rather sad - there should be some controll mechanism even on management level. I wonder what would be required for ubi to actually make personal changes in theirs management. If H7 will not be success they will just drop whole fanchise instead of responsible people...
WoG/ERA is not a mod. Basically is SoD/Complete with scripting support. Allows you to shape the game how you want. Currently there are +100 of mods ERA compatible.
this is kind of info nobody wouldwant to see (bugs, delays) but it says us a lot about Limbic's attitude- they are not willing to give up on quality and not shy about how it's uncomofortable both for us and them.
That my dear councillors is honesty and respect to community.
Have a nice day!
Imagine it if you buy another anything. You paid for it. But this thing they don't give you... They tell you... "we now return you'll update a bit." time time time...
And than more expensive for you this thing, the more you will be angry!
But then again, it was your choice to pay the full price in advance.
Well said Zat, people forget we are not set to release until September. BEAT = TESTING
@codedawg: Keeping up in mind that these people also don't get what work schedule is so it's not a supprise.
Things we all hope for:
Information about Sylvan
lich and vampire progress (the female vampire dream still live!)
Stronghold and necropolis war machines
and the remaining magic schools
But I fear we may rather see things like "Limbic Studios, part II: Toilet Chronicles".
or maybe the void consumed the article ;(
More news, please. We haven't seen any interesting content last time. What about The Next Tales?
The Next Tales about Nagas. Nagas won up-votes. :)
I wouldn't make too many assumptions. That being said, it may not mean that we will read about nagas.
But it is a nice idea, since we have not heard of them much.
They won, it means, won. Give us tales :)
Give Us Nagas!
But is it an official victory? I don't remember them talking that the one with most upvotes is the winner. There are other things to consider here, for nagas are isolationist faction, while demons and dwarves have some history about them.
It is more than official. You can look up-votes here: https://mmh7.ubi.com/en/blog/post/view/the-next-tales
No, not nagas! So many tales can be told, much more interesting than that. Raelag's story, Zakera, Eruina, Tuidhana, Kiril...
Хорошо что не тратил на это 2000 р. Чувствую им придется дату выхода перенести что бы все было нормально.
радуйся если игра вообще будет хоть как то работать -опыт с 6Н говорит что тут все возможно..
Биллютень о Бэтси ....) выздоравливай , подруга !
знакомое слово " рассинхронизация " , увы частенько видела в Г 6 этот диагноз ....
Особенно если с диной на карте:))
Надеюсь это излечимо?!! Эта " рассинхронизация ")
в 6 хроника .....
I've seen a lot of misguided complaints thrown towards Ubi so little reminder- if you have something to say about Ubi post it on their forum. This article has nothing to do with them- Limbic found heavy bugs and has to fix them. Thus we have a delay.
Posting these here makes finding important questions harder and slows development down.
Also have a nice day!
So you are saying the publisher of the game and owner of the franchise is not the one in charge of media relation, selling and publicity? As far as I understand, it is not Limbic who decide if there is a "beta", the release date of the "beta" or final game, or managing the pre-orders
I highly doubt Limbic decides alone what and when things are disclosed on this web site. And of course posting here doesn't slow the development, why would it? Dev are coding/debugging, not moderatinis siteg th
I will blame them because they are Limbic's "boss" company. In other words, they are the ones that made the limit of two weeks, two factions etc. for the beta in the first place.
@GrayMatters: If didn't know that Limbic decides when beta starts and 2 weekend
where declared as time of first phase of beta. Also devs does not receive important questions and suggestions when they are hard to found by mods. Moreover try to think like Ubi- how much time and money do you give for sequel of failed product with unpredictable fan base? Not too much just enough for it to be well done but not too much so there is no pressure or space for risky moves.
@Tanatos.Rise : Sad, poor hater not seen difference between reason and fanatism.
@Energy: There are only 2 factions really done by now: Necro reworked partially, Stronghold needs some basic tweeks as it's the most fresh one, Dungeon and Sylvan are currently at work. Thus so little content which impacts time of first beta phase. There is no need for more than 2 weeks of testing. No matter what you think about pre-orders issue it's still beta testing not demo- game is still rather far from completion. Major bugs are killed now lesser are for "civilians".
Well, you forget that some have pre-ordered just to play beta. Delays may happen, but it is just a short beta, it is not even the final product, yet they are still struggling to fix these bugs.
And beta also gives the player what he can expect in the final game. Even if he/she already pre-ordered..
Besides, I don't see how can't there be any more factions, since in the Haven video (which was made, but was discarded) you can see Stronghold hero, so I doubt they can't add the two factions as well.
Я так понимаю, стоит призадуматься и о релизе в сентябре. Лучше морально готовиться к октябрю-ноябрю, а то и вовсе к новому году. Как говориться готовиться нужно к худшему, но надеяться на сентябрь... ^_^
Вот мне интересно эти их баги с сейвами и все остальное.. Они с самого начала были? Может там вообще какие нибудь с движком проблемы. И тогда им придется все заново делать. Мы же все знаем что баги и зависания + проблемы с диной в шестерке они вообще так никогда и не исправили.
Движок-то фирменный анреальный. Если уж его испортить успели, ну..)
Хотела я предзаказ на игру делать, а теперь сижу и думаю "а ну-ка нафиг", лучше дождусь, когда игра выйдет, подешевеет и куплю на Озоне)) как 6 за 300 рублей купила, да еще с книгой артов из коллекционки 5 в придачу)) просто у Юби отношения с фанатами построены на вытягивании денег из последних, и потому как-то не хочется им эти деньги отдавать. Вот 5 все части купила и не пожалела ни разу, потому что игра того стоит, а здесь я сомневаюсь, что будет тот же восторг.
прям в точку все сказала. 5 ку купил в 1 й день продаж и играл не отрываясь год и сейчас играю время от времени. 6-ку купил тоже в первый день, но забыл о ней на следующий день. 3 ку играю уже 15 лет. Загружена на всех моих компах. И сам диск HoMM III SoD покупал уже 3 раза(приходят в негодность из за постоянного использования и таскания с собой на работу).
CrimsonFire7777, вот-вот, с 3 знакомая ситуация, до сих пор играю с увлечением в нее! И в 5 так же играла - не надоедало, только сейчас компа нормального нет, и заветные диски с 5 лежат, дожидаясь своего часа - в первую очередь 5 установлю, когда комп будет! ^^ а 6 и 4 у меня скорее для коллекции куплены, потому что с таким увлечением в них не поиграешь..
Кто как, а я жду торрент-эдишн :)
Лучшее соотношения цена-качество
К слову о 5-х: у них ещё пол года после релиза случались рассинхроны в мультиплеере, а сейв, при большом желании, я и в 3.1 раскрошить могу, однако это не помешало им стать "триумфальным возрождением серии" а тут с таким боятся даже бетку выпустить:)
К слову о 6 - прям неполный список ее проблем до сих пор )
В 5 было то, чего не было до этого ни в одной части игры (и это безусловно выделяет ее на общем фоне): 3D графика (даже в замках), переработанные фракции, новый игровой мир, сосем иное впечатление от игры в целом. Помню когда первый раз игру включила - была в неописуемом восторге! А с 7 точно такого уже не будет, ибо ничего принципиально нового мы тут не увидим(( поэтому и требования к игре строже.
Бете такая близкая и далекая
Прекрасна словно роза
И страдает склерозом!!
- Да _Динамо_ эта Бэтси - самое настояшее ))) Бабки истрачены -и все :)
Все будут во френдзоне до сентября xD
You will hate me for that but I'd rather see Sylvan now than play beta :D
Eleves got stupid ears! Nobody likes Treehuggers ;)
indeed, just replace it by Inferno :P
Inferno or Dwarves :P
INFERNO! Now we are talking!
No, replace it with Dwarves! :-) \o
@ PureFun - I could live with dwarfs also- but the spikey ears -no thx!
oh hell to the NO !
Oh come on! We can't let all our efforts for creating lineups go to waste! Eventually we can coax them into anting Bastion to the game ;)
@Articun yeah for the expansions but don't replace my sylvan with anything else, shoo, Fortress or Bastion for first expansion ! :)
Did Marzhin read your HCM about Bastion ? ;)
