Adaptability is one of the few things humans have got going for them, and more than one minotaur hero, maybe even a troglodyte, in the faction would be quite welcome.

Have no doubts, there is always worse If only you knew the things that could have passed throughout H5 to H7.

It's a wrong perspective. You have 8 Overlord Heroes in H3, 3 Humans, 3 Trogs and 2 Minotaurs, and while it's not that relevant, of the 3 Human heroes Ajit, Synca and Lorelei, you'd immediately dismiss 2 as an unlikely main hero pick, while the 2 Minotaurs are elite picks, with the Trogs being ideal 2nd-in-command.

Of course, ironically, in H7 it would seem that Darkstorm the Minotaur hero, is by far the best, coming without Assassins, but with Trogs, Stalkers and a Mino plus offense, the Mino soaking up damage.

God no!!!! Poor dungeon is super messed up as it is!! The least coherent faction ever!! An assassi- troglodyte?? Or a trickster?
Come on... This is ashan now. That minotaur should have never ever made the cut. And this is Marzhin's fault. The dude loves the franchise, and has done a lot,and yay for all of us, but putting the minotaur as a staple creature in the line ups was a serious fault.
It shat all over the lore just because. The strider as much as it is hated, makes a zillion times more sense in any way.
I live for the day the minotaur gets replaced by the faceless by a mod. Even at the cost of a support unit.
The line up as it is now is a joke. But to be fair, gameplay wise,along with the awesome racial is not halfbad fun to play.

Personal preference. I seriously disliked the Faceless as a unit in H6 and I'm glad he has taken a backseat as War Machine in this version.

@Galaad: Where did you find that?

PS. Because I prefer Sylvan it means that I'm a female mainstream player...? Each new day seems to tell me something about myself.

Waste of a potentially interesting unit, just like the strider. They could have given it a unique gameplay and they instead gave it strike and return. Some imagination pls

Comments like that show that they haven't just dropped the ball, they don' even know where the ball is. I'm not even sure if I should bother elaborating.

This whole thing would've probably have worked better if every factions was aimed at the "female mainstream" audience. I mean, how many of the "20% hardcore" audience actually prefers this Dungeon?

As potentially part of both focus groups, Sylvan definitely worked better on me.

No its not, the question is specifically about them lol, not if dungeon had several races lol. The rest of the post about them being used as secondary heroes is irrelevant

Such a pointless statement. Yes they are adaptable but whats the point of doing an asspull to change them pointy eared humans (aka the elves) with just normal humans who have to act more or less the same? Because doing it for the sake of changing is just an awful idea.

I agree about more mino/medusa/faceless heroes. Trogs can go eat dirt

Im not feeling this one either... All in all i feel that the shadow council as been a failure as a two-way communication channel. The "discussion" has been very one sided. It has just been a place where the devs reveal their work and then disappear again. Leaving the "council members" screaming their concerns to deaf ears

I know where it is... rolling downhill with unreal velocity

SOME RANTING:
In general im just really unhappy with how H7 turned out... I had my hopes up when i heard they were going back to the roots and all that. But no... Still the same stupid ideas/visions/mechanics are present. I am amazed how they could get it so wrong. This really isnt too hard in my opinion. All the working "pieces of the game" already exist.

Im just not at all interested in H7 anymore. My enthusiasm has been declining with the reveals of the mechanics and faction line-ups. And now the huge bug fest and other problems...

Glad i didnt buy it thou. That would make this even more difficult to deal with. (And before someone says that "you cant judge H7 if you havent even played it", i just say that yes i can I have seen, read and heard plenty. I dont need to buy juice to see if im thirsty)

The worst thing is that with H7 being (in my opinion) i dont have many things to comment on this forum anymore so it will be just some off-topic nonsense for the most of the time...

Wtf are you talking about. "Dungeon Overlords" in my post doesn't in any way mean "humans", whatever the hell you are desperately trying to prove disprove or put into my mouth.
So would you really like a 2nd human faction, all of them black? Or Ylath worshippers?
