Heroes 7 - state of the game and it's multiplayer

Yeah Happpy New Year everybody. Hope Santa brought you whatever you wished for

So I had a desire to play some fantasy TBS, and I can tell you with confidence now that nothing quite compares with Heroes. So I fired up Heroes 7 again and was surprised to see how complete the game feels now.

It has seven factions, caravans, random skills, sim turns, two champion creatures. And the experience is so pleasant now and so smooth. I never completed the Dwarven campaign so decided to start with that.

So, I'm finishing mission 4 of that campaign and the moment, and having so much fun with it. Literally went to bed way too late due to the familiar 'one more turn' feeling.

Campaign works perfectly, no game breaking bugs so far, voice acting is excellent and I love those text boxes, similar to Axeoth dlc ones. I also like how you get few heroes in a mission, start underground and make your way up... To discover the origin of Hamsters lol So yeah if you find the expansion on sale or just feel generous, pick it up, it's great. Hero traits are great, and new spells are fun too. Yeah there are still bugs, but mostly minor and nothing game breaking so far.

The AI though is.. Well it's pretty dumb . So I find the challenge in campaign lies more in scripted battles than the AI. Combat AI is a bit better, but still not on par with multiplayer experience.

Coming to multiplayer, and to the purpose of this wall of text.. It's actually quite active. I could not find anyone to play the duel with, but normal adventure game is easy to find. I finished few 1v1 maps with compulsory quick combats and sim turns, doesn't take too long this way but opponents often complain about the quick combat killing their armies lol. I can agre with that actually. Today I plan to try a game without quick combat but with toughest time limits instead. So if anyone is looking to play, add me on uplay or send a message here.

I find that in multiplayer l, especially on smaller maps, there is just so much variety in this game. You can rush for elites, you can build your economy and fortify your town instead, you can just amass an army of cores!! lots of hero skilling choices too. No one expects a GM in Light Magic when facing the Academy!

Just give the game a chance again, you won't regret it (well may be you will,  but try and find something better to play in the genre..)

Hope to see you on the battlefield.

Tbh the symbol for your post should be a thumbs down regarding multiplayer and the state of the game in general.. If you have not encountered any gamebreaking bugs in the campaigns you are truly blessed and I am not being sarcastic here. It is great that you like it but the truth is that ubi pulled the plug from the project and ended support exactly one month after the addon was released. They left plenty of unresolved bugs too which is why I found your enthusiasm surprising. The multiplayer is not looking very well so I expected that most people would have abandoned the game.

I'm not surprised. It's called fanboyism.

Doubtlessly a good way to waste time - if H7 was the only computer game in the world, that is.

Well, soon enough, even playing 1 vs 1 will make you other one hate the game.

If I were to play Heroes 7 at gunpoint, I'd be contemplating the decision and probably take my chances.

We're speaking about Ubi, so they do things like this one with many their games.

Although it's quite surprising for me, I found out that the majority of bugs are like spell or creature ability not working correctly. I wonder why they're in because for people working in game business, it should not be difficult at all to fix that Lizardman's attacks to 50% additional damage instead of -50% for example, and so on.

Also neutrals are not bad at all. And you can never know if enemy waits or not, even when its decision might finally seem quite strange.

I'll be glad to play a duel with you Especially with New Heroes for Duels mod by Libertad, I find H7 duels to be very enjoyable.

Why can't you guys leave OP alone? I don't like mm7 either but stop trampling people that want to talk about it, it becomes annoying. Yes the game is poor point taken, you want a cake now?

What a breath of fresh air to read a positive comment about H7 for once . Makes me wonder if you've been playing the same game as everyone else.

My experience with H7 is the same as it was after the first "Beta". Nothing has changed ever since , and right now I'd spend my money on a new phone rather than a pc. I've got some awesome games on Steam that I haven't tried yet, so I'm occupied for the time being.

The lack of exposure to any Heroes games, H6 in particular, over the past 5 months or so has even lead to me forgetting what the map names are in H6 and whether or not they're standard or pre-order/CE only.

Continue having fun with H7, I just don't know what else to say. Everyone is having at each other again comparing the older games with the newer ones and what's good about the former and the latter and where both hit the mark or miss it by miles. It's business as usual, so better to enjoy the game(s) instead of ranting about it/them .

I commend your dedication to the franchise, not many people would invest 100 to pre-order a game they can't even play.

I know for sure that this exact type of conversation has happened more than once in the past .

"Falcon's Last Flight?" More like: "Falcon Doesn't Bloody Fly At All". I think I should regret choosing a falcon-headed deity as my avatar, as that makes the whole thing all the more ironic. Beak's a bit off, but He's Horus alright. Knowing my luck, the game's probably going to be a bugfest when I finally get to play it. Fate is going to have a laugh, mark my words.

Agreed with this statement. I'd like to point everyone to the CoC, which states that aggravating another player is not tolerated. Everyone is entitled their opinion, just as long as it isn't aimed at bringing down another poster.

Thank you for your attention!
