Transcript of new/important information from teh 21 May 2015 Twitch stream. Copy and/or use for wiki as desired. Google doc link: Click here

Time (approx.) Topic Detail
:10 Designers Xavier Penin (Game Designer) and Julien Pirou (Writer and Game Designer)
:34 Trailer Showed the beta announcement trailer
2:02 Beta Beta features 2 skirmish maps, Haven & Academy factions with all heroes, solo or multiplayer gameplay (hotseat for beta confirmed at 3:54)
2:40 Beta Beta menu contains a link that leads to a forum where testers can give feedback
3:10 Beta The beta build in the stream is a little behind the version testers will get Monday, so it is a rougher version with different bugs
3:50 Maps Map #1 - The Dried Lands: 4 players, Big size; visible description: Made possible by Titan workers, the great dam of Al-Sadd is one the great achievements of the Wizards House of Materia. Its construction--and the subsequent drying of the southern valleys--revealed mysterious ruins
3:50 Maps Map #2 - Bad neighbors: 2 players, Small broad size; visible description: Enough is enough! This time your neighbor has gone too far, and you going to teach him a lesson. Of course, he claims you are the one who is always provoking him and looking for a fight, but you know who is right and who is
4:00 Maps Options: Human/PC, Color flag, Position, Team, Faction, Hero, Bonus, Status
4:00 Game Settings Turn Type, Forced Quick Combat, Skill Type [open or random], Team can trade, Difficulty, Adventure Map TImer, Combat Map Timer
4:17 Haven Visible heroes: Amilcar, Edric, Ella, Krystoff, Mellisande, Orna, Serguei, Tyris, Wilhelm
4:30 Academy Visible heroes: Aali, Asad, Gloria, Johari, Masfar, Minalsi, Myrim
5:06 Week of Conscription [note: many others appeared, but I did not record them]
5:15 Haven Townscreen: Latest version has a 2D watercolor look with several animations, including flying birds, running water, drifting clouds, puffing smoke, and moving shadows from clouds offscreen
5:27 Hall of Heroes See the Hall of Heroes at this time in the stream
5:27 Haven Serguei (Vindicator) stats: Might 8, Defense 2, Damage 21-24 might, Magic 1, Spirit 1, Mana 10, Leadership 15, Destiny 5, Movement 22
5:30 Haven Wilhelm (Inquisitor) stats: Might 1, Defense 2, Damage 21-24 fire, Magic 3, Spirit 4, Mana 40, Leadership 15, Destiny 5, Movement 22
5:42 Governor Specific abilities benefit governors, but players get some benefit even for untrained governors
6:05 Heroes Series Julien: "Heroes IV had a lot of great ideas, actually." [in reference to Governor system]
6:48 Troops You now can have heroes without any troop stacks
7:35 Skills Random skills ON: At level up, players get a choice among 2 skills and 2 abilities available to that hero's class. In the stream, the text for the choices was missing from the UI
7:55 Skills Heroes can have up to 5 skills. Skills unlock abilities.
8:35 AI The AI in the stream is playing at the slowest pace possible, as slow as humans. They promise it will be faster later.
9:59 Haven Tyris (Paladin) level 2 stats (with some map buffs): Might 2, Defense 7 (4 was the starting value), Damage 22-27 might, Magic 1, Spirit 1, Mana 10, Leadership 20 (10 was base value), Destiny 10, Movement 22
9:59 Mana Regen Spirit * 2 to Spirit * 10
9:59 Movement Cost +50% on rough terrain, -50% on roads
9:59 Hero Screen 8 artefact slots, 20 inventory slots, 7 troop stack slots, 3 warfare slots
11:24 Skills See the skill wheel [it's a pie] at this time in the stream
11:35 Beta You are allowed to stream footage, upload videos, and share screenshots of beta
12:20 Governor As Governor, Tyris doubles base cavalier/curassier growth
13:13 Combat Hero melee attack animation is waving the hand like in VI instead of riding by on the mount like in V
13:20 Combat Leadership triggers an extra turn for dire wolves
13:30 Combat Destiny triggers critical damage for dire wolves
14:20 Flanking Dire wolves had damage * .49 vs. sentinel front, but another sentinel later had damage * 1.35 flanking from behind or damage * 1.13 flanking from the side or damage * .9 flanking from the front.
14:55 Flanking Flanking originally prevented retaliation, but the developers found this to be overpowered and removed it. [but the flanked stack did not retaliate in the stream]
15:38 Music Battle music; Some old, some new. Plays randomly, but it is possible beta will not feature all music
16:15 UI Xavier was unsure if grid can be hidden in combat. [Ubi-Moshi said in chat that is can be hidden]
17:30 Development Q: Are all elements final? A: Nothing is completely finished. Julien said he thought the lights were too bright on the map they were playing and needed to be adjusted.
17:55 Simturn The choice for simultaneous turns should be there for beta
18:30 Town Screen Q: Is it possible to click on buildings in the town screen to open them? A: Yes
19:10 Town Screen Town trees differ by faction. For instance the Academy Mage Guild is straightfoward while others have prerequisites to unlock Mage Guide. Haven has 2 Core unit structures at level 1 but others might have only 1 Core unit structure.
19:40 Town Screen Recruit All button allows to buy all available troops as in previous games
20:03 Combat Q: Funny idle actions? A: Yes
20:40 Troops See a neutral gryphon stack at this time in the stream
21:28 Factions Q: Will we get other factions in DLC/expansions? A: No current plans for DLC. Concentrating on base game for now
22:20 Mage Guild Each town's Mage Guild allows players to choose a specialty element. Get at least one spell from the specialty school at each Mage Guild Level. Faction also can give another guaranteed element.
23:00 Spells Confimation [again] that we can learn spells from shrines
23:25 Troops Q: Since Arcane bird is made of magic, is it magic resistant. A: Yes
23:49 Collector's Edition See the Ivan statue at this time in the stream
24:12 Collector's Edition See the CE box at this time in the stream
25:44 Academy Town screen animations: floating magic duct and flowing water
26:10 Academy Minasli is a Disciple of Water (+6 when casting water spells)
27:12 Skills Xavier had to spend a point on Expert Water Magic (skill) to unlock the abilities.
27:25 Troops Q: Will there be epic monsters such as the crystal dragon? A: No real answer except to say elementals and cool new ones. Xavier: "Champion neutrals tend to be pretty badass. [it also sounded like they mentioned a changeling that is deceptively powerful]
28:35 Multiplayer Q: Will we have to open certain ports for multiplayer. A: Multiplayer uses port forwarding.
29:15 MMX Julien said the gratitude for MMX really warms his heart
30:20 Skills Metagic - Novice: Increase spell duration by X; Expert: Increase spell duratin by X [presumably bigger than Novice]; Master: Ultimate ability of Clarity gives 50% chance to gain second action when casting spells
31:33 Town Screen Q: Why no 3D town screens? A: 3D town screens accounted for 50% of the art budget for Heroes V. The developers decided it wasn't worth the expense for something players look at a couple of times before using the menus to perform all functions
33:58 Development Q: Release date? A: Firm September 2015
34:09 Academy Gloria (Blademage) stats: Might 2, Defense 2, Damage 21-24 might, Magic 2, Spirit 3, Mana 30, Leadership 5, Destiny 10, Movement 22
34:14 Academy Johari (Battlemage) stats: Might 2, Defense 0, Damage 21-24 air, Magic 3, Spirit 6, Mana 60, Leadership 5, Destiny 10, Movement 22
35:10 Development MMHVII will have more text than MMX
35:25 Random Maps Q: Will MMHVII have RMG? A: Very complicated [which sounds like a no]
35:55 Map Editor Expect a couple more Twitch streams, with at least one dedicated to the map editor and tools in August
36:25 Development Q: Why only 30 hero levels? A: Classic and it seems like enough. Adventure map buildings will allow heroes to learn more skills and abilities than the 30 points you get leveling up
37:19 Town Portal Instant Recall [the spell for Town Portal] doesn't work like Heroes VI. Only takes you to the nearest town you own, like in Heroes V.
37:45 Troops Q: Number of creatures you can deploy on the battlefield? A: 7 stacks on hero, but during deployment you can split stacks to have up to 9. [Not clear if this is possible only with Outnumbering ability.]
38:30 Development Q: is it possible to view an ally's battles while you wait for your turn in 2v2 maps? A: Not right now. Xavier: Your opinion might be very interesting.
38:53 Music Q: Is Paul Romero involved in the music again? A: Yes. Rob King and Paul Romero with operatic pieces from Karin Mushegain [from previous titles]
41:50 Development Q: Why are system requirements so high? A: Still optimizing. Can't know the final requirements when you are sitll putting things in the game
42:30 Artefacts Sandals of the Blessed: Might +1, Defense + 1, Magic +1, Spirit +1
43:05 Troops Q: Why didn't the gargoyle fly in combat? A: Because it only moved a short distance. It will fly for longer distances.
43:08 Artefacts Sandals of the Blessed appear to be part of a set. DEPRECATED - Crest of Courage, Celestial Shield, White Shield, Regal Armor, Celestial Staff, Sandals of the Blessed, The Blade of Truth, Warden of Winter. Set Bonus: +250 gold/day
43:10 Academy Minasli (Wizard) level 5 stats wearing Sandals of the Blessed artefact: Might 1, Defense 1, Damage 28-36 prime, Magic 6, Spirit 9, Mana 80, Leadership 7, Destiny 8, Movement 23
43:25 Academy Asad (Blademage) stats: Might 2, Defense 2, Damage 21-24 might, Magic 2, Spirit 3, Mana 30, Leadership 15, Destiny 10, Movement 22. Specialty (rakshasas)
43:28 Academy Yasir (Wizard) stats: Might 0, Defense 0, Damage 21-24 prime, Magic 3, Spirit 6, Mana 60, Leadership 7, Destiny 8, Movement 22. Specialty: Delver of the Royal Purse (+250 gold/day)
43:29 Haven Edric (Vidicator) stats: Might 6, Defense 2, Damage 21-24 might, Magic 1, Spirit 1, Mana 10, Leadership 15, Destiny 5, Movement 22. Specialty: (dire wolves)
44:21 Game Settings Q: Can you choose to be a random faciton when you create/play a map? A: Not in beta but in retail
44:37 Inspiration Q: Favorite games? A: Xavier: Tactical RPGs "I wouldn't say Heroes is one of them, but it's the same kind of thing. Tactical battles and everything is story and character deveopment." Julien: Strategy games, RPGs, point and click adventures. He has been playing The Witcher 3.
45:30 Development Q: Is 60 mana too much for a wizard to start with? A: Still tweaking values
46:06 Development Q: How about replacing the die icon for Destiny with a rainbow? A: No real answer [sounds like a no]
46:54 Troops Apprenctice (Academy Elite troop) stats with Minasli as leader: Might 11, Defense 9, half damage at range
47:39 Combat Q: Morale and luck rolls? A: Yes, every time a creature acts. Good morale results in a second turn. Good luck results in critical damage.
49:10 Heroes Series Q: Favorite Heroes game: A: Xavier: V. Julien: II
49:38 Heroes Series Julien: "I think some people will hate me, but I never really liked Heroes III." [His reason was that he liked the colorful cartoon art of II and found III to be bland.]
51:35 Factions Q: Can we see Sylvan or Dungeon? A: Just starting to get the assets for those. Look for them in mid-June.
52:40 AI The AI does not cheat and get free troops. The AI starts with more resources on higher difficulty settings, but it won't get free troops or resources during the game. So no more of defeating a full army of AI only to see it has another one the next day.
53:50 Development Q: Are you able to interact with the environment? A: Mention of the destructible structures on the adventure map and forts
54:57 Troops Q: Are there male druids? A: Julien: "JeremiahEmo, is that you?" Druid troops are female. The heroes can be male or female.
55:38 Troops Q: What is the progress of the Necromancer revamps? A: Still in progress. The lich is very skeletal, not a "meth head. lich"
57:20 Resources Q: Are gold mines worth 1000 gold/day? A: Value is 1000 gold/day in game, but could [not can] be adjusted in the editor
57:32 Maps Q: How many maps at retail? A: Campaigns are huge. We will have Multiplayer and Scenario maps. And the Map Editor. Not 50 or 60, but more than VI outside of the campaign.
58:50 Factions Q: Who is the main antagonist? A: Each campaign is its own story like Heroes IV that can stand alone.
1:00:07 Beta Beta is in English only, but retail will include other languages
1:02:26 Collector's Edition After playing the beta trailer again, Julien showed the Ivan statue a second time and opend up the CE box to show the artwork printed on its inside

Announcement that popped up on Steam a few minutes ago

Quote:
Hello Heroes,

It is with a heartbreak we have to announce this very difficult news. Despite all our efforts, we wont be able to launch the Beta today, as originally planned.

We know this statement is probably as devastating for you as it is for us, so we would like to share with you some transparent information about this situation.

Last week, we identified several issues that were really dangerous for our release: our save/load system had a tendency to corrupt saves under certain conditions; multiplayer was still riddle with desyncs; and finally, we had a very nasty piece of memory leak which halved the performances after an hour or so of gameplay.

We pushed really hard to solve those issues, including this very weekend. We would like by the way to thanks both Limbic and our testers for the overtime they put into this release.

Unfortunately, and despite our best efforts, we could not completely solve those bugs, and today our testers had to let us know that in case of releasing, our players would have faced a much degraded experience.

You might wonder why we hold off until the very last moment to announce this decision. The reason is really simple: we already improved a lot on those issues but unfortunately we didnt reach the quality we were aiming at. In the meantime, we spent a lot of time agonizing over whenever or not we should release the current build despite its flaws.

Since we know you value (rightfully so!) quality, bug-free and kick ass releases over broken pieces of software, we followed our testers advice and decided to call it a day, despite a heavy heart and a broken promise to you.

As of now, we are already hard at work on our next version. We will make it as good as possible, as we want to present you with a release that makes the quality and the potential of Heroes 7 truly shine. And we hope you will enjoy this game as much we are enjoying ourselves developing it. Well... except for tonight

Now our immediate next steps are towards solving those three big issues and release our Beta as soon as possible. We will keep you posted once we have made some careful calculations before announcing anything.

We understand your frustration and will try to find a way to make it even for your patience. Heroes 7 is really a special title for us and we want it to be a true successor to your favorite series.

Yours truly,
The M&M Team.
