My thoughts after trying the beta...

AI
AI is just terrible. It has very bad prioritizing. It seems priority is dependent on tier making for example golem and cabir combo invincible. Sometimes I feel like AI doesn't even understand what to do. For example I cast water spell to prevent priests from shooting;
A runs up and down behind top obstacle, B&C advance, D runs like A just at bottom. The AI also has no tactics as enemy often just gathers at middle to be hit and decimated with AoE-spells.

Creature abilities
This as expected is one of the worst points of the game. The units don't really feel different from each, especially when fighting neutrals. Haven in general feels the same as h6. Academy is pretty much like academy from h5. The active abilities should have limited use and/or cooldowns. You can use the abilities even on morale turns. More diversity is also needed. Ohh and with academy it's pretty much no brainer which champion you go for depending if you're magic or might.

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:36:18

Adventure map
The mobility of heroes needs to be bumped up. It feels like you are barely moving, especially if you pick resources. This pretty much forces you to buy secondary hero to collect the resources/buildings main hero clears out. Another option is get logistics which gives single movement point per level... and snatch ability(but just getting the governor movement boost to 2nd hero is better...) Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:36:35

The enemy stacks are shown unfortunately. You know how many stacks there are so battles don't really give you a challenge. You will also know if they want to join you and you can go grab them even with empty hero. I preferred the old system of showing few, horde, legions and such. Getting specific info should be something you get with scouting IMO. There aren't mixed enemy stacks either to keep battles interesting.

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:36:53

Town chart:
The buildings are way too cheap in general. In h7 you also get way more resources than past games(faction rare + random rare in town +1 wood&ore from spell, + 1 wood&ore from ability, + 1 random rare from ability and up to +750 gold from skill). Not to mention all the resources you get from piles on map. The town building requires really no planning and it doesn't even feel rewarding to get anything because it was made so easy. Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:37:15

Another problem is the optional "choice" buildings. They are mainly choice between common useful bonus or defensive building for those who want to turtle. Really they should be choice between defense/defense or growth/growth for example IMO. For good player they just don't give any realistic choice. The requirements for buildings are also too strict some requiring couple buildings... which require couple buildings... which require more... + buildings level requirement.

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:37:35

Creature tiers & Battles
The tiers need bigger differences between each other. It's pretty much like h6 system in terms of stats, they simply added the "power" version to core and elite. Champions are like h6... so not much of champions really. And elites are not much of elites really. They just don't feel powerful units in any way. the fights feel very prolonged and are all about the hero really(be that boosts or spells). Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:38:00

I had a fight with my army of about 130 units(including elites) vs 150 gargoyles. It took somewhere between 15 and 20 turns to finish on magic hero. Champions are like h6, able to kill couple core units only(some champions they are!). IMO the core units need lower health and more variety to dmg between factions to make them feel distinctive. The battles also feel very mechanical like in h6 IMO.

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:38:18

Skill-system&specializations
The worst part of the game I believe. Because there are only couple decent hero specializations you are left with very little choice in which will be your main hero. This is narrowed even more by getting decent class, leaving most heroes as secondary heroes or governors. Between factions it also seems the same kinds of specializations just get tossed around(growth, spell-boost, spell-school -boost, extra ability at start)continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:38:37

The specializations are basically the same exact crap as in h6, but heroes are lacking more with dynasty gone to supplement the system. What cuts your secondary magic-hero choices is in your MG. You will want good spells? You need same magic as your main hero, there goes variety and you play pretty much clone of your main hero. continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:38:56

One of the biggest problems is that you can get same boosts from many different sources(for example morale you can get from spells, haven racial, governor or the skill itself so it doesn't feel special at all). Another problem is that skills are tailored for specific heroes so there isn't a choice as to what to get. Do I want magic or might boost as might hero? Or maybe I should go governor with my main hero?? So much for choices... Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:39:09

Great deal of the abilities are also not balanced. For example prime magic has +40 restored after each battle(novice) which is better than GM that doubles mana restoration(these two should get swapped IMO for example). The same applies for some spells also for that matter(like storm arrows being novice spell). There is a lot of balancing required for the system. Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:39:26

Another notice I made was that racials feel rather useless and boring. For academy for example to get use of racial you basically need at least 2 magic schools learned... At which point you could just go for luck to boost your spells instead of hoping for 2nd turn. For haven it's not really any better since you can boost morale other places too, both only have single useful ability(extra hero turn/full morale turn). Rest are just stuff you pick to advance. Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:41:11

Random skills are clearly an after thought that was not in mind when the system was being designed. It just doesn't work with this game because all the abilities are tailored to suit specific class/need. One major difference is also compared to past games that before you could go for example basic/advanced/expert and then pick abilities, now you have to pick ability every "level" before getting advanced/expert/GM. Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:41:26

Hopefully devs will alter this system so you can pick the advanced/expert-skills without taking abilities(not GM though). Also I hope they will allow player to only pick 3 abilities per skill(currently no limits). The current system just makes random-system seem completely useless. I would not suggest playing the game on random, unlike before now you can't really effect what you get and are likely to get screwed. continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:41:45

Classes should also have access to all skills at master level of their type(magic or might) and access to all skills. Just looking at the current classes and their restrictions eliminates most heroes as potential main heroes for me. The class should just decide how the stats grow for the hero IMO, allowing player to choose main skills also. the current execution is just plain bad IMO killing all variety from the game.

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:42:02

Magic schools
The schools feel too similar. All schools have a little bit of everything and they don't truly feel like they focus on anything. The schools do have differences, but not enough to make them feel unique(it's really pretty much 1 or 2 spells that feel different from rest). Spells are pretty much all taken from h6 though h7 lacks in AoE spells(it doesn't matter if you hit enemy with 1, 2 or 4 squares as damage is always same in h7). Continues...

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:42:22

I think each magic school should get an extra 4th level spell for variety and give player some excitement as to what they are gonna get. All factions should also get 2nd slot for MG so you get spell-school of your choosing(for academy it would mean 3 slots). Some spells should also get swapped around, all adventure maps spells shouldn't be in novice IMO(and ban vessel of shalassa in non-water maps).

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 19:42:35

Overall
The game gives illusion of freedom and choices, but the reality is the exact opposite of that. There is also very little randomness in the game making it so far very predictable and quite boring. With a lot of the systems and models taken from h6 it gives quite familiar feel to it. Graphics are very grey and plain, a lot of times it's hard to see what you are exactly looking at, especially if using lower graphics. The game is currently WAY over-simplified, MMH for dummies if you will.

The game just doesn't offer much of a challenge nor require players to use their heads. If h6 was about optimization, h7 takes this ways further. It's in many areas upgraded h6, but it's also downgrade in some areas. It's hard to call this game a strategy game considering how simplified it is. I think even h6 might have required more skill(or more like knowledge actually) compared to h7. Hopefully devs are able to create some depth to the game, currently it feels extremely shallow to me.

Let's just say that H7 needs quite some work, especially on the animation front. Yet, no matter how it turns out, there will always be people who think it's bad, or who think it's actually quite good.

No, there is nothing of that. I believe what he meant is compatibility with spells and abilities of other creatures.

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 20:14:10

I forgot the much hyped war-machines... I don't really see much difference there to past titles. When you get your skill to GM it's just like having couple extra champions(the damage is around 6 champions worth when maxed to triple shot and GM) on your side with 5k hp. They seem good for the first month or so, magic hero can do better though. I still don't see how they would ever become viable choice in longer games unfortunately. Maybe they were meant for secondary heroes with less troops..? :S

28
ramborusina 
June 12, 2015 20:19:25

@Antikouras I meant the compatibility between might and magic hero with the titan/simurgh. Magic hero will get the 25% boost to spell-power which considering how very powerful spells are is a must have IMO. For might titan on the other hand is no brainer since offense gives no ranged penalty to cabir, mage and titan already at novice level. I don't see why you would ever get simurgh as might hero or realisitically titan for magic hero when the alternative is so much better.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
June 12, 2015 20:30:15

There's a lot to respond to here anyway...so let's filter out some things. Champions: you consider them weak? Well, that might just be the situation, but I had 2 Colossi who were well able to take out some enemy elites. To me they appeared quite powerful, and as such they are meant to be (rare resources, little growth, choosing between two etc, as the devs had in mind). It's probably going to require further building, but right now they show potential.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
June 12, 2015 20:32:48

"I preferred the old system of showing few, horde, legions and such."

Which was present in H6, although, admittedly, upon meeting a stack you'd get to see their exact numbers. There are pros and cons to that. One way you don't know how much you're up against and rather choose to prepare, the other way you know how much there is and you may take the risk. We'll have to await the final decision on this from Dev Avenue.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
June 12, 2015 20:34:40

Balancing issues, well...it's still a Beta, so we couldn't really expect a highly polished version from the start. I think I haven't played the Beta enough to actually discover many spells and skills (simply because the slowness makes playing rather...not fun to do). You might want to consider posting this also on their official forum, so you can be sure it's read by more than just the people here.

The beta was actually running very smoothly for me and crashed quite rarely until they put up the updated/patched version. Now it's sluggish and crashing more often even on low graphs -.- (though I suppose I should've gotten used to that with h6 patches fixing something minor and breaking something major on some of the updates)^^

@rambo: Funny, because for me it's the other way around. Okay, it's not brilliant yet, but I noticed a positive change in game/combat speed. Yet crashes do occur, and also the AI has a thing for getting stuck in its turn. I couldn't play H6 at first either, only with patch 2.1 it became playable (much to my relief, for I have loved it ever since) :3. I know it's bumpy history, even though I rolled into said story at a later stage.

It's not like my text-wall was mean as hate-text, simply to point out some things and possibly offer some solutions to things I found troubling. They are my personal views as pretty much everything I wrote is subjective. I doubt they will do many changes at this point considering they only got 3 months time left. Just fixing the bugs will probably take longer in reality, but some fixes I suggested are quite easy to implement.

Also realise that people who buy all heroes from their faction who increases the growth of creatures then get much more units, even if they don´t use the heroes...

This isn't an official explaination but it comes from a VIP (Acid Dragon). Basic source of variety among Heroes in HoMM III and V comes from specializations. In MM:H VII this source of variety are (theoretically) hero classes, as there are 6 per faction and at most 2 heroes have the same class. Devs believe that the classes are so distinctive that they differentiate to such a level that specializations like ones in Heroes III and V aren't required. It seems reasonable but I disagree with it.

@Marblethrone
1. Learn to read comments because some of the "leavers" never promised not to come back;
2. Learn to analyse and conclude if posting once in a month can be considered as "returning";
3. Earlier I've considered you as a mindful person with different taste, now you behave like a retarded kid. So be it.
4. Why do you care at all? Ignore "leavers'" posts as we ignore your walls for 1 year almost.

You know, having different opinions is not a crime. Heck, even defending what one could consider garbage is not also a crime (even if it is displeasing).

But it is unwise to be blind and think some things are great, when, in fact, can be improved to a whole different level.

If not for that, in a way, that person that made the article about "Heroes fans being too conservative" must be laughing his ass off at insults like these.

Though try to blame Ubi, they split the fans in half.

"You're not a white knight, a white knight wouldn't defend h6, is not ethical to do so."

In the service of Ubi it's a virtue. To the Enrothian Conservative Party I'm a heretic that should be burned at the stake. It's a matter of perspective, and you got to grant me this one; I am not afraid to defend H6 in the eyes of danger that comes from those who hate it with such a passion that many would fall by the wayside.

Marblethrone The Chivalrous

NOTICE ME, Sempai. "Crappy" too depends on one's preferences, ideas, hopes, tastes and what not. If you want me to, I can point out flaws in H6, things I consider changeworthy. It's not like I praise H6 and am blind to it's lesser sides. I just see the positive side of things, why is that a bad thing? ;3

Didn't you, Marble, really get my point for ~8-9 months of my presence here? I have an opinion: H6 was bad. Disastrous. Ugly. Catastrophically boring game. But if someone was ok about it - that's his/her business. I never bashed personally someone for having different opinion. But I spammed sometimes, yep. For supporting my opinion. So? You love H6 - ok, feel free to. You love H7 beforehand - ok, feel free to. I don't care. But stay away from bashing good fellas here.

@Sempai:

At least I never ragespammed my preferences/opinions. The thing is, I did not bash someone's posts because of its contents. I think the old games, 3 is the one I know best, are just as admirable. The new era added more in a much more beautiful environment, each which its innovations and differences. Those in favor of the Old Days have every right to do so (as are the ones following the new ways), but it's also the manner of expressing one's thoughts. Hate/ragespam: not ok.

It's not like being at a super-high level makes one 'the person who's always right'. It shows that one has posted much and apparently received a lot of followers for that. Clearly the ideas being promoted take root...and I would be glad to go against that :). Keeps discussions alive, you know.

One can find the same shade of fanaticism in the fans of the older games, who have shown a lot of rage and hatespam against Dev's decisions. In fact, I never went that far and I never will. I do not justify everything, even I came to realize that remodelling of some Necro units would not hurt. I am with those who want better hero specializations. Yet there are also things I just happen to like, things that are or are not reminiscient of H6.

Because they were objectively crappy. Not because we wanted "just heroes 3 with better visuals" but because h6 was the wrong step. There's no need to develop it. H5 were a perfect example how to learn from H4 fail. And now they fall into the pit and decided to dig even deeper instead of coming out.

And you are supporting him in this things trying to justify everything he does. Like "wow man hamburgers are even good for ya, no one tried this before working in gym".

@Sempai: Well, if you want to compare it to that. I was a kid, young and unspoiled when I met H3. I think most of my 'formative years' in the franchise are with H5, although I do play H3 still from time to time. Re-read what I wrote in the past, you'll find that not all of it is blind praise of H7. I too offer ideas, but just not as much as others. Call me biased for I liked H6, which definately helps liking H7. We're all different, we gotta live with that.

Translation for Mirash:
Mirash: - Even though Marblethrone is in the opposition, he's talking things about H6 which are not thue up to me. H6 had some positive sides, but let's face that negative sides were much more. So I can't see the promised "to gather the best from all previous parts". In my opinion H6 is a totally different game and it's incorrect to compare it. Plus unpretentiousnes of the customers provokes impudence of the sellers.I liked h6 but let's admit that the majority dislike it.

I agree with Sempai in his/hers opinions about Heroes games and their development: H4 wasn't that bad, it was just crap after H3, which is still the ultimate Heroes game. H5 was perfect step up from the grave and perfect innovations to push Heroes forward again. H6 was the ultimate crap of them all and now they are just digging a catacomb into their grave with this H7 instead of getting out and building on the very fucking good H5, which competes for the title of 'best Heroes game ever' with H3

Like H3 was much better: + attack and defense for all creature specializations.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
June 11, 2015 20:48:57

@mediczero: I am with Galaad here. That kind of specialization is indeed better than just extra production. Also, in H5 we saw those too, but not all the time. Eruina, for instance, specializes in Shadow Witches/Matriarchs. With every hero level, the chance of them getting a free shot at the Hero's target increases.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
June 11, 2015 20:50:44

And Sorgal, who specializes in Raiders, can increase the damage of their special attack depending on his level. As EnergyW pointed out below, H3 started them, H5 improved them.

30
EnergyW The Hack
June 11, 2015 20:51:11

Well, mediczero, it is not always creatures. It was also skills, spells and other things. But remember specializations made their debut in H3, then H5 improved them. These are just too static, offering a permanent bonus, which does not improve by level.

mediczero never played heroes 3 yet she never misses an opportunity to criticize it, is amazing.

And yes, h5 improved some things from heroes 3, and everybody was wanting for further titles to continue this path.

30
mediczero The Hammer Of Fate
June 11, 2015 20:53:47

Well alright, + attack and defense is better, but diversity in stats increased (+ speed, health, so on) beats it all...

June 11, 2015 20:55:36

Well, sometimes, depending on the unit's stats. Still, better than these things.

30
EnergyW The Hack
June 11, 2015 20:58:40

The only somewhat disappointing specializations of H3 were sometimes spells (like ones boosting Haste) or certain skills. Mutare and Xeron, whose abilities improved devils and dragons (only if they were in they army) gave them some additions, which did not improve by level. Then again, we are talking about some of most powerful units here, so it is justified a bit.

Lori-Ke The Dark
June 11, 2015 21:33:45

Don't forget about those with the eagle eye specialization. They were my personal favourites:)

mammothhunter3 
June 11, 2015 21:34:01

In the leaks of Dungeon heroes there was Lethos and he had a specialization similar to what it was in H5. Guess it is not difficult to code, same agony/poison spray/curse of the netherworld stuff.
Still, not all specializations are the same. Maybe the team listened to the outrage and added a few more in the following factions, or maybe Ubi-Nox choses the most boring ones for people to have something to discuss here. Or maybe these are just the ones that are ready

no it doesnt make any sense. orc are an ugly race by default, demons are not exactly "race". all kinds of urgash creation is considered "demon", so in a way demon means "a mixture of different races for urgashian creation"
"succubus" are seductive demons, so they are "beutiful" because of their creation purpose.
breeder if you consider as female is an entire diffrent creature still counts as "female demon" and see how it looks.

orcs are ugly, and female should be ugly like an orc.

Medic, if you mean succubus, they aren't demons ab initio. In Ashan lore that is

U CRAZY?

Devs how u want balance that:

Cyclops Befriender (Increases the production of Cyclopes and Enraged Cyclopes by X/week in the Area of Control.)

&&

Gnoll Chieftain (Increases the production of Gnolls and Gnoll Hunters by X/week in the Area of Control.)

I really doubt that the game will turn out good.

Why U can't make standard specialization like +1 to atck/def eaqch 2/4 level + some bonuses to select creatures? Is that so difficult?

U RIP Ashan Universe yoreslf.

What I mean a 'standard spec' (Heroes 5):

Cavalry Commander
Cavaliers and Paladins in hero's army get additional jousting bonus as hero gains new levels. Hero's "Retaliation Strike" ability is more powerful.

Griffin Trainer
All Griffins and Imperial Griffins in hero's army gain +1 to their attack and defense for every two levels of the hero, starting on first level. Griffins get Battle Dive Ability.

Centaur Commander
Centaurs, Centaur Nomads and Centaur Marauders in hero's army gain +1 to their Attack and Defense for every two levels of the hero, starting on first level. Moreover they get +1% to their starting initiative for every level of the hero.

Devs offer the creative solutions lower than the average browser-based game does, facepalm/((
