Re: Brief Review of Heroes 7.5 mod

Thanks Pol, I should add some clarifications to help people understand this mod better. -The Hades mod was originally intended to add Inferno, and this is definitely an interesting faction that is well developed. Inferno's racial ability is gating, which requires only 1 mana to cast to summon an Arc...

Re: WARNING - The dreaded moment is here: Heroes 6 servers shutting down

So... 7 weeks after shutting down, how was it? Anybody wants to update on the experience?

I am not an owner of H6. After it came out I played on my cousin's H6 when he was at work, and hated it, so I never bought H6. But I'm asking, because what happens to H6 will happen to H7 in a few years.

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VII - Necropolis - The Wages of Secrecy

I would definitely advise adhering to the Walkthrough. Yes, take that whirlpool to the Northwest and grab that remotely placed town. You'll still have a few tough fights once the Irollanders/ Elves mobilize and come after you, but it's doable on Heroic without requiring you to be a particularly good...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VII - Necropolis - Thoughts and Intentions

This is a very irritating mission. You are attacked dozens (no exaggeration) of times. Maybe 50 times. I also have posts from around 2016 about the poor structuring and design of this mission. All the enemy is ultra aggressive, but completely incapable of processing relative strengths. The first thr...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VII - Dungeon - A World Which Now Trembles

I should warn against attacking the enemy heroes before you are prompted to do so by the system. The enemy level 30s are well buffed up with artifacts and abilities. You can't win without taking serious casualties. And the problem with that, is that your victory doesn't count. That's right. If you k...

Top level new spells not working

When I played Trial By Fire, I noticed that some newly introduced spells didn't seem to be working. I remember mentioning this years ago. Since the Trial By Fire campaign is basically Dwarves with Fire Magic and Humans with Light Magic, I wasn't sure of this. And it wasn't important to me anyway. No...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VII - Dungeon - The Essence of Purest Poison

OK, should update. I did finish the map after all. And then I remembered the last times I played it. It might not be the Banshee altar that's the problem. It's the prison break sub-mission. Don't conquer the castle Moraleth or its nearest fort. These are designated in the script for the Soulscar. Yo...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VII - Dungeon - The Essence of Purest Poison

It's not that hard a battle, but Ubisoft's programming is the problem. If you trigger the Banshee's altar, the Banshee will pop up and then you are asked to fight her. When this happens, you have to fight her. If you chose not to fight, and move away to do other things, sometimes the computer loses...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VII - Dungeon - The Essence of Purest Poison

Playing this again several years later on Heroic. I've played on Normal and Hard before. Spoiler Alert: Banshee of Despair is just a few hundred ghosts, three stacks each in the 100-250 category if you move fast and attack early. SAVE the game when you think you are near to finding the Banshee. It's...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VII - Ivan - The Stuff of Future Memory

I read that the end scenarios played differently depending on how many "Tales" you had completed. I tried this after finishing only the Academy and Sylvan Tales, just to see. I only got two pieces of the sword, couldn't access parts of the map and the only other hero I controlled was Nolw...

Re: picture of the day submission

No worries, it's just to show their ongoing problems.
I am currently playing H7 without any mods or add ons, but already it cannot save to cloud. They give me error messages without explaining why. So everything I am playing on now is a local savegame.

Re: picture of the day submission

The disconnection is from their platform software, Ubisoft Connect. So I think it was a platform or server issue. I was not able to connect for half a day or so. My internet was working perfectly fine. I only have one Ubisoft game, Homm7 (which they insisted on rebranding as Might and Magic Heroes 7...

Heroes 3 HOTA 1.7 Factory faction review and comments

This is by no means a definitive review, as I am just starting to explore the new Factory faction. I personally don't like this faction in the slightest. But I'll try to give an objective basic rundown for other players. Factory faction has what I consider to be serious balance issues. If you don't ...

Punished For Playing Well

Oh Great. Years after the debacle that Heroes VII came out, I am still finding bugs in it. I recently started missing this game after not playing it for a long time. So I logged back into Ubisoft Connect and downloaded it again. I was just playing the official campaigns. Haven faction, Tomas the Wol...

Horn of the Abyss third campaign (Frontier) issue

Hi Everyone I seem to have run into a problem. I played HOTA campaign long ago, and don't remember it clearly now. I just replayed the third campaign, map 1. It's called Frontier, where Jeremy is supposed to find the Guiding Star by visiting all the obelisks. There are a bunch of seers (and barriers...
