I can't believe I'm saying this, but we need heroes 8.

It's basically as I found it all those years ago, minus some members like Adrius, Elodin, Cepheus, and Blizz. We periodically have a newbie, some controversy or other, I'm leaving threads, HC is dying threads...

Yes, it's dying, but it has been dying for a decade, so just enjoy the ride.

Dibs on moderating the board.

TBH the h3 section is relatively active though. And CQ community is very active too, albeit on discord...

All of us in this thread has been here for less than a decade though.

There have been many interesting members over the years and I am surprised by the people, long forgotten, I am reminded of when I occasionally look through old threads.

Other people I never really noticed, but I realized had been steadily here for several years as well. Like I must admit many of our current mods where very unknown to me when they stepped into fame.

There are members who so to say have missed each others, members which I think could be interesting if they met each other, because they seem to share interests, but be of different view points.
On the other hand, it could also turn us back to the time where people complained a lot about few people clouding many threads with there almost off-topic discussions.

Still it could have been cool if E.g. Artu and TheDeath had met or Baronus and Elodin.

Some of the older posters from the 'good ol days' (that at least means before I joined, as far as I can tell) have been here lately in 2017, Kookastar, MightyMage and others have been not completely inactive and friendly and nice to write with.

Nice post, gonna nitpick: You can't know how much time each member has spent lurking before finally joining. Now, granted, I don't remember my lurking time total exactly either, but it felt long.

LOL! Discord huh? Wasn't that bad for business here at HC? Where's the purist mentality you imposed on me back in the day? Hilarious standards there, mate.

On a different note, HC is not dying, HC is already dead. Latest 10 replies had 3 days old comments at times. Activity is at its lowest and meaningful activity nonexistent altogether (save for some modding threads, whoever finds that meaningful, not me in particular). Our newest members are oldies who came back after taking their goodbyes, one in particular stepping on his "principle" to not make a return, but here we are, lol. Some others fading into obscurity just to pop up every now and then. The news section has articles from 2015 still rolling and nothing from 2017. Not like there's anything to write about, the Heroes series is dead as it can be, so the forum just reflects that.

Good luck with that RP thread by the way. Last time Panda tried something it died in a week. Sad times, but moving forward.

Hc isn't going anywhere anytime soon. People come and go, but hc sticks around. And if Val passes on the torch eventually, it'll still be here. Regardless if the series is ongoing or not; there will always be modders modding.

YES AND NO

You can say it's falling into a coma (or it already did), but this is not enough to kill it. Jeez, I enter here after some... months? weeks? ...and I find you all in full depression mode.

By the way, it's the same thing back in the spanish forum, the Ivory Tower, we have very few activity, but recently (some months ago), this new goy guy called Ruzer entered into our forum kicking down the door and waking us from our deep sleep and then proceded to smash us with a ton of reviews of extremely obscure and old games. So, I suppose we are fine now, lol. Even if we are very few, our dedication keeps the forum alive like a breathing machine. We just hope one day something will come up to us and be useful for new activity.

I warned them, you know, I told all of them during the development of Heroes 7, when we were having a lot of activity, that we should start to focus on other games, so the people that come looking for H7 won't go away if H7 was snow and instead stayed because of these other games they would discover by looking into our forum for info about H7. I suppose it's a bit too late for that or to start talking about Age of Wonders 3 or XCOM 2. We should have do that a long time ago, but everyone was too damn focused on HoMM.

Right now, the only place from which salvation might come in a short term, it's King's Bounty 2. I hope they do that, instead of releasing more pointless sequels. And I hope they change the setting from Medieval Fantasy to anything else, since in King's Bounty (and in the expansions) they already milked everything that could be milked about Medieval Fantasy.

Seriously, I can't be the only one who is sick about Medieval Fantasy. There are a lot of cultures and ages to be inspired by, everyone should stop going for the safe move and start making something original.

For example, if they don't want to make any big move, they could stay in Medieval Fantasy but going a bit to the South and to the East... you know, to the other side of the Mediterranean (but without the muslim stuff, please, let's promote positive/pagan things). It would be cool to see egiptian necromancers, persian wizards, turquic/mongolic barbarians, and carthaginesian/berber mercenaries.

And if you want to go crazy, you can do things like my "Red Sun" thingy. Which, by the way, I didn't update because no one pay attention to it. Anyway, you have the link to the spanish version if you want to know more, and (ATTENTION EVERYONE) I plan to release a PDF in both spanish and english (it would take some months... or maybe just weeks). When it's ready I will upload it to the archives of the Ivory Tower and then put in a new post (on this forum) the link to download it. I plan to do it with InDesing and using lot of pictures, so no one gets bored.

Endless Legend is also a good example of how to do different things (and the main thing that inspired me to do Red Sun).

Anyway, my advice for you all is that you stop being so obsessed with HoMM and start paying more attention to other turn-based games like Age of Wonders, Disciples, XCOM, Endless Legend,... etcetera.

And let's pray for a King's Bounty 2.

My thoughts exactly. Back in the day I'd have linked to one of the numerous HC is dying threads but it really has for some time now.

Quite ironic considering we had half a dozen or so HC is dying threads, but once HC actually dies there will be no thread dedicated to its actual passing.

Personally, I grew up with HC, first time I posted was SJW induced dutch courage, I met Darksy in that glorious thread and rightly burned that hillbilly thread to the ground. Good times.

But honestly I miss Jenny the most, for the past year he has been totally absent but I still feel his presence, so I haven't truly started missing him yet. Then Darksy, Meroe, Gnomesy, DD is finally released on probation so that's good, and some older people like Insanity's broken English, or Nighty (of whom I still have fond memories, such an eccentric).

Then where's Dag and Azzie.


Idk back in the day it was really easy, so many personalities to get to know, now I feel like the some English viceroy overseeing a bunch of eastern Europeans, superior aye, but a bit of an outsider in my own domain, from crazy arabs to papal dogs all the way to neo-nazis, and worst the slavs. Where's the civilization?! (I kid you not, as soon as I thought where's the civilization I thought of Will and the rest of our Ozzie cuzzes).

There are a few here n there, like the 'Muricans who just barely make the list of English speaking countries (with a little spirit), and naturally the Scott while uncouth is still better than most. The Norwegians also a respectable lot, with the Fins deserving special consideration.

Well, suggesting that Heroes Community might be dying could be a symptom of depression. I mean, don't let the situation depress you, get your snow together and make new content out of nowhere.

Newcomers like fakefrosty really added to the decline of the site.

That, and the fact that HC is the residence of the NWC Master Race, despite some erwinists running willy nilly here and there.

Nicely done, singling out something irrelevant and talking about respect, you of all people. Full marks for that corny generalization, patronizing me with cliche lines as if taken straight out of soap opera. What respect you showed me was throwing a hissy fit over Discord, threatening me with a kick and making me the anathema of HC's well being. That doesn't even compare to how you ****ed me over irl back in Paris and everything else in between, so don't kid yourself that I meant "mate" for real. If anything, I was parroting your style of speech back at you. Damn, irony's so on point today.

When you look at threads from 2003, 2007, 2012 and 2017, it's easy to see there is a constant population shift and just like in real life, rather than instant take-overs, it happens gradually. Again like in real life, you have a few senior citizens who are "90 years" old, compared to a lot of middle-aged members. The significant difference is, there are less newcomers, no youth. That is understandable considering the franchise isnt half as popluar as it used to be, there are so many alternatives with advanced infrastructure. (I just learned there is a HoMM 3 sub on reddit for instance and once you register to reddit, you register to all its sub-forums.) However, such sites never have the same subtleties of closed communities with fewer members which kind of resembles clubs with limited accsess where you actually get to know people in time. So I think, as long as it is not shut down literally, the place will keep giving a pulse no matter how weak, but its heydays are certainly over.

I did get angry at you when you created a CQ discord channel behind my back, for the rest I have no idea what you are talking about and I suggest you stop your flaming right there.
