Re: Interview with Paul Anthony Romero (Team Masters of Sighisoara)

• What do you think about the heavy Irish folk element in Heroes 4's adventure themes? Do they set the right tone/atmosphere for the game?

Re: Interview with Tim Lang

Alright, you convinced me. :) I really thought Heroes 1 had mentioned "Enroth" somewhere in the manual. --- Anyway -- let's modify my first question then: 1.) Can you tell us anything about the name "Enroth" and its origin? Was it a reference to something or completely made-up? A...

Re: Interview with Tim Lang

This name is a reference to Ronald Enroth, who wrote about cults and abusive churches. This is part of the reason why in HoMM2 they gave that name to the kingdom/continent that was planned to be plagued by a Kreegan worshipping cult in the next game. Wow, that's really an interesting theory. It wou...

Re: Interview with Tim Lang

For sure take JVC and make him work with some of the old NWC crew, whatever they do will be great. They even managed to make a great game in the mobile market lol, and honestly it feels much more Might and Magic than anything Ubi did. You're talking about Creature Quest, of course, which is actuall...

Re: Interview with Tim Lang

That's really something to look forward to: Even though M&M 7 is a fantastic game and has some of the best features, on the whole M&M 6 is still the best "second-era" M&M game (in my opinion). If only Tim could join forces with JVC to create a role-playing game again... Even if...

Re: Contents Wanted

Celestial Heavens is a great site, and I visit it regularly to find out about M&M news and join discussions about my favourite game franchise and its current state. And I have to wonder: Are an independent news platform and an independent forum not sufficient reasons to keep this site alive?

Re: Ubisoft Release 1.7 and Unity

That's true, but my point was that Ashan could just as easily have had similar creature design, world lore etc. as Enroth or Axeoth. Sure, as Ashan's fundamentals are Tolkienesque/D&D-style fantasy, too, it could have been made into a good M&M setting. In my opnion, this option was forfeite...

Re: Ubisoft Release 1.7 and Unity

It's funny, why Ashan is so different. I've heard many saying they don't care about Ashan and the Dragon Gods, but I'm uncertain why that world is fundamentally different from Enroth/Axeoth. It consist of heroes, creatures, wars for nations etc. Ofcourse the worship of dragon gods influencing most ...

The pages seem to load normally now, and logging in also works again. Good work! :tsup:

Do you have any more info on the cause of the problems? Was the site under some sort of attack?

Re: Ubisoft Release 1.7 and Unity

The ratings on both Steam (40%) and Metacritic (5.0 of 10) are still by far the lowest a *new* Heroes game has ever had. The same is true for the Metacritic professional critic rating of 67%. These bad numbers cannot be explained by a frustration over bugs and crashes alone -- and this is confirmed ...

Re: Ubisoft Release 1.7 and Unity

well wheter it's a desperate action or the reason is what they've stated, that they stumbled upon the old story scripts, why not just be pleased they decided to go back to Axeoth. I think, as a general rule, it's important to not only care about results but also about the way they were achieved. In...

Re: Ubisoft Release 1.7 and Unity

Hiring Terry -- the main writer of Heroes IV -- *would have* been a great decision ten years ago when Ubisoft took over and Heroes V was made. Instead, Ubi's arguments were either "the original lore is too thin" or "we are not familiar with the original lore and prefer to create our o...

Heroes VII: Resources presentation

From the perspective of map making, resources which are not tied into the specific lore of Ashan would be better suited. Not all scenarios and campaigns are meant be to set in the same world after all.

I'm like you my friends, i think they ask maybe too much for the community. It is quite imporant to listen what people have to say about the game, but concerning the core gameplay, let developers do their jobs and listen a little bit players, not only wait for people's vote... The creation of the g...

I agree that Ubisoft shouldn't be making these polls (for various reasons). It seems to me that finding out the fans' opinions isn't the main purpose of the polls anway -- first and foremost, they are clever marketing tools to give Heroes fans the impression (or illusion?) of actual creative influen...
