Guys I got a problem =( My PC says the disc is empty and asks me to name it to later burn something in it... The backside of the disc seems to be of an unused kind too. Should I take a screenshot and email the store?

I think the main problem is that they need someone other than Erwan Smugface McButtons to deliver these statements.  I'm tired of his smirking shenanigans.  Run the project, fine; but get someone else to talk to the players.

Seriously, at this point every time he talks about something not being such a big issue, I want to tweak his nose.

Also true. I mean they have done a number of things to satisfy the fans even if they did not initially plan the game to be this way. Plus much the feedback we give them comes from the communities. If they didn't care they would not have bothered with.. plenty of things really, including some that have yet to be revealed. Let's just say that they took their time a bit


Only that there had to be an uproar for them to listen. If we didn't show our teeth, there would be no changes. This is not a proper relationship between the community and developers/producers. And their responses back to the community were a bit too late. You can't say that they took their time, to me it looked like as if they waited to see if our voice would die down so that they can ignore it. In certain cases, it didn't and it's only then that they were forced to change some things.

Yes. If you can go to the store with the cd or at least call to the store you should do it. Because they can ignore your email, but they can't do the same if you call them.

It's a complicated story but in the end some things have been established. Also.. who says they have been waiting to see if they could get away with it? There's a lot going behind the scenes and the bureocracy does nothing to speed up the process or communicate in public things we have known for months. Like someone said, the bigger the company, the dumber it becomes

Problem is it's an online store and I got the collectors edition. I don't think they will send me a new collectors edition =/ If I send it back and they send a new one the shipping gonna cost a lot too since it's heavy.

You can try to contact UbiSoft directly. A couple of years ago, I knew a lot of people who had a similar problem with a DVD Boxset that came out (that was music DVDs, but I don't really see that made any difference), and when the company became aware of the production fault, they asked people to sent in the faulty discs (it was only one disc out of a many-disc boxset) and they got a functional one in return. Of course, I can't guarantee how long that will take, or that UbiSoft will offer the same service.

PS: I would start by double-checking on another computer or disc drive to make sure it was not the drive that was faulty or couldn't read the disc.

Thanks for all of the suggestions ^^ I have sent a msg to the store and a msg to ubisoft customer support. I hope for the best and I will also try it on another PC. While I got the "game" early it seems I won't be able to play until later than other people

This image is curious. Why is there a "blue" hero in the list of creatures who will play?

I'm guessing he's a neutral you can't control but will have to save.

The objective of the battle in that image says to keep someone called Jorgen alive. Perhaps it could be him. That's why he is in the initiative bar. For you to keep him alive, the enemies must be able to harm him and therefore he has to be in the fight.

Well yes, maybe, but frankly the skill system they mention from the early draft sounds to me much better than the current pick-whatever-you-like system which I think is downright lame and one of the major letdowns of the game for me.


I think you would be surprised. The previous drafts had something like a grand total of 15-25 possible skills per hero, with up to half of those shared between other classes - i.e. choicelessness incarnate. It was a no-brainer to lambaste it as unsatisfactory.

Not really satisfied with the current system either, where no class has a truly unique skill or ability, but it has the elements to become excellent. I am hoping we can still twist it around substantially. Ideally I'd like more schools to be restricted and for every single class to have at least a few unique skills.

That's another strange thing because Jorgen is the name of the faceless, as revealed in one of the spanish videos.

So instead of unlocking at midnight tomorrow, the game unlocks at 1 pm on Steam.  Yeah, that makes sense.

Maybe the Faceless are shapeshifters?

@Ceph: How would they twist it now? It's supposed to be finished, right? Would they make any changes in future patches or expansions? I doubt that...

I guess you don't remember H5's skill wheel? That thing was tweaked and altered so much between patches that by TotE it was unrecognisable from vanilla. By no means at all would I rule out changes to the H6 skill system, if there's enough unanimity about its problems.

Yeah, I remember that changes were made. From HoF to ToE at least, there have been a lot of changes to accomodate the Orcs. So perhaps, the new factions will require changes on the new skill system too. But that doesn't mean that they're gonna make different skill systems for different factions.

They're changing the town screen, aren't they?

Don't rule anything out.  Complain long and loud enough, and eventually they'll give us what we want.

Because that's a good way to run a business...

Yeah, they're changing the town screens after a horde of angry fans threatened not to buy the game. I doubt we got the strength to go that far for a skill tree. I don't mind it myself. It's great that it's not random but it could be more unique.

My major grudge about it, is that you have to learn the spells there instead from a magic guild. But I'm not making a big fuss about that cause I always wanted a game where the magic heroes won't be overpowering the might heroes.
