I just can't help but wonder if those games didn't had another purpose to their name. Like, were they just made to push some sort of agenda? So Erwan could bring them up as 'proof' that he's been doing something to then request more budget and whatnot?

You forget Heroes Online. Guess who was at the helm...


I actually found Heroes Online quite good, considering it was both free and also a great excuse to have heroes combat gameplay fun in a sort of more RPG type setup. Shame it was left in eternal beta.
Look, the problm with FTP games is that if no one spends money on the game it doesn't work - no one is paying for all the work and servers and whatnot. So the aim with making a FTP game isn't making a good game - it's making a game people will spend money on, even though it's ftp. Which makes it difficult: you must have a game good enough ao that a lot want to play it - and you want it to become a lot better when you invest money, without feeling screwed over.
Also the game must go on. They started with 2 factions. You could basically play the same campaign from 2 different point of views - and you'd expect them to add factions...
Apart of that - I found the game boring like hell.


Heh, thats one of the reasons why I liked that deal. I felt no incentive to pay anything, especially when they had a free seal deal on a promotional website giving you enough seals to unlock both campaigns. And why would I spend money to make a game easier? Just kills the challenge.
So in other words I like FTP when they fail at being FTP, but yeah, if they can't make money then its hard to continue to build up a good game. I am a bad gamer


While I am here, can you only access the Heroes 7 Axeoth stuff in multiplayer, or is it single player only? Tried looking in the editor earlier to find the new heroes, etc, but Nada.

I think Ubisoft greenlit them well in advance, trusting Erwin's promises that Heroes 6 would be a big Blizzard-type flagship success (they certainly delayed it long enough to be lol),
then when it fell on its ass they withdrew their patience and killed off the side games, giving the apparently delusional Erwin one last chance on a very tight leash with Heroes 7 and its expansion, which are also bombing lol

So the campaign adds a couple of creatures (White Tigers and Efreet). Are they part of normal H7 too or just for this campaigns?

Does anyone have weird looking main menu? I can see throne room above and below menu panel so it looks weird and unfinished.

Apparently users with 4:3 aspect ratio monitors are being discriminated for having old tech. Is that your case?

My guess is the effreet is a normal unit and the tiger is just for the campaigns. I say this because the effreet shows up in the heropedia while the tiger does not. And I'm sure white tigers just cannot exist in Ashan.

But I wonder if we will be able to recruit any effreet in the maps prior to this patch, or if we will have to either make our own or wait for them to make more. So far the maps seem to have fixed neutrals that can be recruited so unless they went back to make room for the fire genies (which I doubt) then I'm out of luck.

Hmmm... games these days don't nessarily seem to be getting better, just bigger. Consoles need to have more memory just to part instil these bigger games (remembering the days of those small PS2 memory cards). I wonder why they need all the extra GB? Is it just more complicated graphics and effects? Or is it fundamental to the game play? You have games that are similar to their ancestors but are just that much bigger. I am no dev so I have nay idea.

What do these, completely original and not a re-skin of another unit, tigers look like may I ask?

It's like with hero specializations, that'd require to implement brand new stuff. Perish the thought!



Personally I hope someday some kind soul recreates them in Heroes IV with its everlasting campaign editor so they can be enjoyed as they were meant to be

My download was 2.1 GByte. No clue why other people have different sizes. Maybe your game was corrupt to begin with and it downloaded extra files to fix that?

Efreet can appear on maps as it is in the editor.
