Sylvan Wallpaper

It could be that the dragon is a walker and a flyer (when upgraded).

Vote for the Sylvan Lineup!

I think you misunderstand what democracy is. Democracy is to go the way of the majority. Why is it overrated? No matter if they make choices that end up to be good or bad, going the way of the majority is better than going the way of a minority. Not to mention that the latter is more dangerous becau...

People! People! I have good news! We now have democracy! You always have the right to... not vote. That's right, it's true! You don't have to vote if you don't want to! Isn't it spectacular?

Let's first see what the outcome of the last vote was, because apparently some people misinterpreted what the developers wrote in the first vote:

"Use whatever means you deem necessary to rally the other members of this – informal – meeting to your choice".

Heroes VII: Resources presentation

There's a quest in MMXL where you have to find the metal from a fallen meteorite so you can have a sword forged for you. This fits the starsilver concept, except that, IIRC, the meteorite in question appeared to be red, not blue.

@Kalah:

Just when I was about to say that the changes in voting seemed quite unnatural from a statistical perspective.

The dryad+treant is a bad idea. Either it will be overpowered or the treant will be weak without the dryad. That is, if the treant is on par with other champion creatures, taking out the dryads will make it weak.

The Gold Mine

I want progress, I just don't think these are things worth worrying or complaining about. I can't imagine anyone really being annoyed by the fact that the cart in H1 and H2 looked huge in relation to the mine itself. Sure, I remember myself making jokes about the disproportionality of adventure map ...

It's the same concept, not drawn from the same concept art. They also have the same feel.

The Gold Mine

It's funny how you think the cart is disproportionate when in H1 and H2 the cart was twice the height of the mine entrance itself. Not to mention the cauldron of the alchemist lab which was a third of the building's height. I guess you didn't mind back then. As for hiding the objects, the design had...

The emerald knight, about which so many fans have been complaining, is actually reminiscent of the MM7 elven warriors.

Note that the lyrics are in Greek. It's not easy to discern them, though and I think Karin's R is less rhotic than it should, unless I am mistaken about the words she sings.

As far as I can tell from the gameplay video, adventure objects do look different in different terrains, as they always did in previous games.

Since when are the proportions of anything on the adventure map realistic?

The deer is a literal reference to the Heroes 6 week of the "Sun Deer: not a good week to be a moon doe", hence the two creatures.

Haven Warrior

A lot of these "Slavic" names are actually slavicized Greek names. Dimitri for example is Greek Dimitrios. Irina, Kirill, Anastasya are all Greek names, too. As for why they were being used, I think it has something to do both with the fact that Nival (which is based in Moscow) created a lot of the ...

@Karmakeld:

Seriously? Treants and dryads imply a Warhammer influence? Didn't they exist for like thousands of years? Weren't then used by numerous fantasy novels, games and dungeons and dragons RPGs?

Well, we survived 5 games without them. Not to mention that they weren't part of any vanilla game of the series.
