I'm pretty sure this game is gonna be snow.

First, there's the long track record of Ubisoft.

Second red flag is the price. Ubisoft always tries to sell their snow at the highest possible cost. A normal game is 50 $ Can where I live. If that game is sold for 28 $ Can, then we're talking about a lesser game made by a really small company that reuses all models.

Third red flag is how they promote is as a game of pure strategy. Most Heroes players kind of suck at said strategy to be honest. It's going to be one of these "strategy" games with little depth. They just write "strategy game" on the box so plebs think they're so smart cuz they play a "strategy" game. No mention of campaigns? Lost two third of the HOMM community right there.

You might be happy, but Might & Magic should've always stayed under 3DO and after their bankruptcy this series (or just name "Might & Magic") should stay dead ... it would be for better in MY opinion...


Quote:
Eh 3do kind of messed up with New World Computing had but yeah it would be better than this


Quote:
If only the people who were making Heroes in the past could be making it now ( The game now just cant keep up with the fun of Hommam II,III,IV. Ubisoft ******* with Heroes fans all the time. Instead of making just an evelolution of whats good they are trygin to make somethink totally diferrent thinking that they will make it work.


Quote:
So bad what Ubisoft made of M&M. Legacy was an absolute joke... please forget this series, it was already a masterpiece without you, Ubisoft.


Quote:
I'd rather stick to my nostalgic ****ty feel and start M&M6 all over again


Quote:
Might and Magiv for blood and honour was for me the crowning achievement. And heroes 3 naturally. They did a great job with 5. But then 6 got away from them. Let's not mention 7 and Legacy was a big F@#$&* to the fans.


Quote:
The problem with the "newer" games is, that Ubisoft is trying to hard to make this franchise thier own, but they keep failing. And the fact that they made us think we got to "help" with H7 was even worse.
They should have tried to really work together with us instead. It's like they never tried to understand what made us like these games.


Quote:
While I don't think M&M X was total catastrophe, in some ways, it certainly was. Gameplay was fun, it was challenging but there were great amount of bugs, graphics were really ugly, like really really ugly. The only thing that looked medicore were models of npcs and creatures, and they were just ported from Heroes VI. Textures, models of other things were a joke.


Quote:
They should try to give development of the game to people who used to do old Heroes games and stop trying to put Might and Magic franchise bull**** into it.


Quote:
For one brief, beautiful second I thought this was the Might & Magic XI announcement I've been waiting for. I seem to be one of the few who actually like the Ashan setting, but this is ridiculous. Take a lesson from the Pathfinder Online debacle: if you have a niche franchise with a small, dedicated fanbase, don't make a game that has no relation to what those people love about the franchise. The name's not big enough to win you players in the genre you're trying for, and the folks who *would* be interested in the name aren't going to be interested in this gameplay.


Quote:
Wow you even have to pay for this **** that could easely have been a mobile game... And it's 20,- no less

Look at Heroes of the Storm, that is free too and i believe it does well. And if am correct it is still not p2w. Should have done the same.

And the art looks horrible, is this really all you can come up with? A rather want Might and Magic: Heroes Kingdom then (don't know if that is the correct name) this **** lol.


Quote:
what the actuall flying **** is this? i was so hyped that a might and magic game comming out, this...thing, since i dont know how should i call this product is a shame to the might and magic tilte.
not to even mention that it cost 20euro


Quote:
Ahhh the death of might and magic. Who would've thought... ALL thanks to ubisoft and whom ever the hell they hire. I miss M&M that had the hype of our mordern games today and stood toe to toe against bioware games per say. And yet these stuborn dimwits keep ignoring their only niche market, the fans of a former giant.


Quote:
Sees Might & Magic O_O

Sees 'Tactical Arena Combat Game' -_-

RIP M&M RPGs, I still remember you fondly


Quote:
Ubisoft give us (fans) game like "Heroes 3" but in fresh graphic! Something like old Buldur's Gate and new Pillars of Eternity! Please!


Quote:
It could be just enough for us (for fans) od Ubisoft, will do some facelift for Heroes M&M V.....This season was for me one of best after HOM&M III.


Quote:
So, your bread and butter fans of strategy are supposed to be hyped over a he who clicks fastest wins game? What in the actual ****?


Quote:
Do a Might and Magic 6 remastered!!!


Quote:
Just remaster all Heroes and Might and Magic series. You will have way better success (including financial) than producing such AWFUL titles.


Quote:
This is one of the worst ideas I've seen from Ubisoft yet. They have completely wrecked the Might & magic brand


Quote:
Ubisoft apparently has never played any of the classic M&M games, or just don't care about what fans of the series liked about the franchise.


Quote:
How about making another actual might and magic game.


Quote:
Don't ever buy a noobisoft game guys. They have very little talent in taking what works into the next game. See homm3 fx at the time it was up there. THEY just want your quick buck and before you even start the game they shut it down and on to the next game. You can use 100's of kroners on fx mmdoc and then they can't even keep the servers running, and you have to live with month worth of buggs.


Quote:
Just configure HOMM3 for smartphone/tablet. I'd buy that. I think more people would buy that than your current projects anyways. .


Quote:
Sorry but M&M has gone to **** under Ubisoft. T_T


Quote:
Might & Magic universe deserves much more than this simplistic crap.


Quote:
Somebody needs to take the Might & Magic franchise out of Ubisoft's hand and give it to a company that cares about and understand their audience


Quote:
When you 'll create something similar perfect like MM3 and World of Xeen then start to broadcast. All this is nonsense.!!


Quote:
"fans have been asking for a new Might & Magic game, so we present Might & Magic MOBA!"

Fire whoever thought this was a good idea, ffs


Quote:
Ubisoft please stop ruined heroes of might and magic series.....


Quote:
How about you build a proper M&M game?

Last two releases were just... horrible.


Quote:
Oh goody, another game from you guys I won't touch.


Quote:
When are you guys going to stop making this crap and make a REAL Might and Magic 11?


Quote:
can they just do a remaster edition of III, ahkk, those old days...


Quote:
Sorry to see these announcements. People want original games not experiments..


Quote:
Gonna be equally ****** and bugged as the last part?


Quote:
This makes me want to cry, and not in the good way ... What are you doing with the franchise Ubisoft ??? Seriously ??


Quote:
Might & Magic Heroes 3 > ALL


Quote:
How many times will Might & Magic Heroes 6 models be reused? -.-


Quote:
ohh... please stop it already.. stop spiting in our souls UBI.


Quote:
This series was such a great game, until M&M 4 now they are trying to milk it, its not going to bring them profit or fame


Quote:
Ah, the degeneration of franchise...


Quote:
Missing a great HOMM3 for 2017 ^^


Quote:
Only ubisoft can **** up a good game... Congrats again


Quote:
I'm a model maker and this video is offensive.


Quote:
WTF. Thats not M&M!


Quote:
Might and Magic Heroes V remastered pls


Quote:
So Dota on a smaller scale. Would never play that


Quote:
Guys, is this IP ever profitable for you anymore?


Quote:
No! Just, no.


Quote:
I'll just stick with my memories of m&m 3...


Quote:
H6 + H7 = the most bull**** ever...

Damn, haven't seen a game this bad in a long time xD

I got a free code yesterday.

Aren't you on some sort of NDA, Vitirr?

Yes but the embargo was lifted today if I'm not mistaken. Anyway there is nothing I wrote that cannot be seen already in public videos or was already published by Ubi.

verriker said:
they were very evasive when asked to rule out microtransactions and gave canned PR answers, I would expect to deal with microtransactions sooner or later if you're gullible enough to buy this game lol

Frankly, I don't know why the hell anyone would ever include an ingame shop if you aren't seriously planning on monetize the game through microtransactions. Funny business plan: first sell the game to unwary fans in order to fund the petty budget of the game under the promise of no microtransactions ("at this moment"), later turn the game into a free to play (of pay to win) type of game and charge new unwary players (and those fans who did pay in the first place too, if they are stupid enough). Does it sound like Ubi?

By the way, Galaad, you certainly took your time with that last post. Respect

It's actually a pretty awesome game.. Played it this morning for about two hours. Glad to see media reacts well to it so far, esp IGN and RPS.

Edit: I think the in game shop is more to emulate the feeling of actually buying a figurine and painting it, etc. Although literally every recent game has micro transactions despite premium price..so sadly it wouldn't surprise me

I kinda like it. But the question is what is ubi really aiming for? To promote and sell figurines? To test waters for a might&magic rts? Or to make games that only require existing models and minimum amount of work?

And honestly, how many of you wouldn't be interested in a decent might&magic rpg? If ubi can make showdown, why not bother making a proper rpg? Last time ubi spent money on models and animations dates back to H6 and since then they have been recycling. How exactly do they hope to draw people's attention and keep them playing? They need a goddamn serious game for a change.

And that is the problem, not whether showdown is passable or not.

Well to be honest they did do some new models and animations for heroes 7 (Sylvan, Fortress, etc). But I have to agree with you here Elvin. To the person like me, who played every single Might and Magic product Ubi produced, the amount of reuse and recycle starts to annoy.. Music, animations.....abilities.. They really need to start investing money into the franchise.

Although I Kind of happy that the work that was originally put into these models can finally be appreciated (and not just colourful dots on zoomed out battlfield).

Don't be so tacky panda



Just remembered that this game is using uplay which makes my pc lag like hell whenever I exit their games. Enduring even a few minutes of lag just to play showdown? Nope, not likely.

I think that IGNs review is more on point. PC gamers reviewer is obviously talking out of his ...., I played the game and what he says in the review about passively watching the screen and 'there might had been a black bar across as it would change anything' is a complete BS. (After the very first tutorials) I'm not sure whether some people are just not strategically minded and low IQ or if they like to make a judgement without actually playing.

I received a free code for early access around a week ago but I'm not going to inflict myself more harm, h7 "beta" testing was plenty enough.^^

I don't really know what to say, there's not much to say, there is no game in fact.
