Heroes VII Announced

@GreatEmerald: I share the sentiment. Nothing will make me care about this unless somehow the devs manage to honor the series' roots and develop a SOLID, EXPANDABLE GAME SYSTEM, including prior and foremost a working, non-cheating AI and an engine capable of creating and handling hundreds and hundre...

H6 Patching Policy

@CloudRiderX: "Are you aware that every AI cheats to a certain degree in every game ever made in the history of gaming?" I'd say every single person pointing out how the HOMMVI AI underperforms horribly even when indulging in the most obscene degree of cheating in the series (to the point that it de...

Finally a GameSpot Review: 8/10

No mention of the hundreds of bugs, skirmish maps or the state of the AI... in a strategy game! Moreover, the review sounds as amateur and inept as those from those unknown sites which gave the game an instant thumbs up on the basis that there's combat and it's pretty.

The World Again

FWIW, I noticed the resemblance at first sight.

@hellegennes: what do you mean that official confirmation means nothing? It means precisely that the likeness people are picking up was deliberate.

Wait, what? He never played it before, so he did his research, fair enough. From his research he got the impression that HoMM 6 is a RTS.....what the holy hell was he smoking? He seems to associate certain things like adventure maps and fog of war to the RTS genre: Exploration and resource collecti...

After playing it for some time now it's getting more and more clear to me that the Heroes game we used to know is totally gone now And this, in a nutshell, is what explains M&M Heroes 6 (not HOMM6, mind you, and at least I appreciate the sincerity in the name change). Basically the series has m...

Erwan Q&A at

Well you'll never get a dev on record admitting the dumbing down. It's sad, but that's the way it is. So now, Erwan's excuse (and I'm not blaming him, mind you) is that more resources=management, and that this hurts strategy. Which is complete rubbish of course. Even the examples are bad: Starcraft ...

The Current State of Things

I can't believe there hasn't been a single comment regarding the state of the AI - or maybe I've missed it? From my perspective this is the shadow that weighs heaviest on the game by far if we consider its two less-than-illustrious (in this regard) predecessors. So c'mon beta users, how did you find...

Wait, M&M "mouse pointers" as a prize? Doesn't sound too generous, Ubi. I guess the only step down from there is offering M&M pixels.

Dev Q&A - Town Screen Released

Sheesh, I foolishly thought simultaneous turns were in for sure at this point. Age of Wonders 2, Disciples 2, those games are almost a decade old and supported simultaneous play out of the box. A HUGE bummer, this. :-(

Relatedly, is there any way to revert back to seeing what the computer does in its turn, instead of getting the silly black screen? Is there a toggle somewhere that I've missed?

An engine that's minimally optimized, and oh yes an AI would be nice thank you. All other considerations are surely welcome but not essential.

Banedon: that's a toughie. I don't think you'll find yourself playing much of any expansion if the original HOMMV didn't do it for you. The core game, expectedly, remains basically the same, for better or for worse; the factions only add more pizzazz. What's worse, most of the more glaring problems ...
