I just noticed something. In the pic that Elvin posted of the Larger Stronghold. Is that the Hero standing in front of the Gate?
Is that an Orc on a Horse? Or is it this Sandor fellow?
If it is an Orc, it looks kind of scrawny. And why is it riding a horse?

Probably Sandor. What's wrong with horses?

Oh horses are fine enough. For Humans and Elves, that is. Orcs should ride something that bigger and tougher and less noble. Something that'll kill ya for looking at it wrong. Something that Orcs have to beat into submission before it lets the Orc ride it.

Sharks are a strong possibility. Anthropomorphic sharks, specifically. They could be the new shock troops or something.

EDIT: Ow now I forgot the post I was meant to make!

I love that cyclops picture! I want such a discription-picture for all the creatures! I'm sure I will use that for my own proposals! COOL!

And that cyclops looks mutated and cooler than all other cyclopses I ever seen in games, this cyclops actually fits the champion spot, it makes the homm5 cyclopses look like sissies.


Are you being ironic? Now I have REALY mixed signals

Really like the new cyclops! IMO Black Hole screwed up a lot of units, but they completely nailed this one! You can really see the demon influence, which really hasn't been all to clear in both the old orc units from H5 and some of the new ones. Generally a fan of demons in heroes, the only problem they might have now is how to make the upgrade look even better(Assuming the eranged cyclop isn't the upgraded form, although it prpably is.). It almost fits better with the demons in looks, but am glad that the orc faction has at least one kick-ass unit.

Really wish the standard orc hero would ride on one of those cyclops, would be totally awesome. Would also fit the wish some posted earlier, about the mount of the orcs being a monster, that would have be beaten up in order to be riden.

If they could just add this kind of awesomeness to the other races(Except necropolis) like thay did with the cyclops, then this would be one of the best heroes games of all time!

Bah...
I still can't understand how will HOMM game go on without either the Elves or the Mages, since 5th race is the one that wasn't ever introduced to HOMM series...
Still I love that they gave us the orcs

so the dark elves were kicked out for being bad right, lets say they bring the elves back in the expension, what should they look like at all ? being regular ones and dark ones together... before ones went nature and others underground... what would the elves look like ?

Orcs Have been in since H1, there is NO way you're scrapping them, especially not if Inferno remains in existence, I'd be quite happy to see those shot at dawn, although I hold that opinion about most of the towns these days, none were very inspired.

i don't really mind inferno soso much but i really would like yo see haven disappear in H7. I'm just not a fan. they are just generally contrived and dull. Why should theyb there when an interesting faction couldvery easily replace them? seriously a free cities faction with machines and muskets and even halflings could be cool.

I asked this over on the official forums, but never received a response. Not sure if it's because it's "hush-hush", but I figured I'd try once more here.

Does anyone know if the Beta test has started for this game yet? I only ask because with March being a mere 3 months away it seems like they would be cutting the release date close if they haven't even begun testing it. I'd hate to find out that March was only a placeholder date and we don't see this game until late 2011.

I am not a big fan of elves... (however Sylvan castle looked amazing/only exception), to justify bringing them back in an exppantion (they are not a new race, so go figure), Ubihole would have to bring some new, inventive, cool a** looking graphic design of them (celts, seriously) If they cannot do something new and excited with this worn off by many (games, books, movies etc.) race, I believe it's pointless for them to exist in future HoMM.

We don't know honestly. The insiders either don't know or they're not allowed to tell us because of their NDA. Personally I betting on the first. And because they do not know, neither do we.

We do not know what testing phase they're in now, all we know is that the screens they showed at the announcement were pre-alpha.

I think everyone is praying for march, but I also think that everyone rather wait for a good game than get a rushed and buggy game soon.

Yea honestly , i'd rather play Amazing HoMM6 in August, then Crappy, full of Bugs in March 11th.. I agree to wait more as long as they make it Awesome game...

I agree that Barbarians Have been there since H1, But NOT Orcs
H1 - 1 Orc
H2 - 1 Orc
H3 - 1 Orc
H4 - 1 Orc (who wasn't even in Might faction)
H5 - 2 Orcs + Shaman (the only true Orc faction in series)

While Nature alligned faction Have been there since H1 as well,
I INSIST on Nature faction, Not Elf faction

+ IMHO it was always more interesting to play Nature(who use fast rushing attacks, strong on ranged attacks, various magic spells, more focused on summoning though), rather than Barbarians(who didn't really have proper magic, just focus on a brute force and ranged Cyclops)

People are all upset elves aren't in but what about trolls?  They haven't been in since Heroes 3 and they used to be a core unit.

Actually, forget that.  I want mummies back, damnit!  I want a fun necropolis of loosely connected units instead of a bunch of spider-aspect-of-the-dragon-of-order worshiping goth kids.

No kidding.  That game was a travesty.  Absolutely murdered the Disciples series.
