It reminds me of Blizzard and Diablo franchise.

The community isn't a hivemind, true, but it's pretty much unanimous that H3 and H5 are the favorite games, and its a no-brainer to base development on that. Yeah H6 was a financial success too but as Galaad said that's because H5 indicated they knew what they were doing.

Yes, there are some people that prefer H6 but you know how I know they're a minority? Because H3 and H5 still have very active player bases and many modding projects whereas H6 is dead. Ubisoft that knows too, and I know that because they kept pretending they were basing everything off H3 and H5. They didn't market it as a direct sequel to H6, which is what it was, because they knew people wouldn't want that. If I recall correctly they also shut down the MP servers for H6 although I could be misremembering that.

Honestly, the whole thing is baffling to me because it doesn't make any sense from either a perspective of wanting to make a good game OR from a perspective of good business. I genuinely don't understand what the motivation behind their handling of H7 was. Perhaps it was just incompetence but I find it hard to believe a company that big would put clueless people in charge of ANY projects. Maybe I'm wrong.

Honestly I think H7 would have been a decent game if they had finished it. Based on that interview from Marzhin what they had planned for the Sanctuary and Inferno expansions sounded like they were headed towards more H5-like gameplay and tying up the loose ends, story-wise. But alas, they were needlessly antagonistic to the fans, released a buggy, unfinished game that they marketed as AAA and sold for 60 USD, and for that reason, it was doomed to fail regardless of anything else.

So... today they were supposed to "open" the game for predownload and tomorrow open the servers... but guess what!

No game on the store and they locked their Twitter account... how Ubisoftic Da Tweety

I wanted to download the game for science purposes (extract H6 animations and some more units) but I guess I will have to wait

PS: did anyone mentioned the renamed MaM: Elemental Guardians to MaM - Battle RPG 2020? How creative

Well, because the real name it deserves might be inappropiated.

Well, not only its Android-only (so apples are out) build but they also rejected some regions (mine included).

Not sure why its so hard to let us know which regions are open and which are not but hey... its Ubi

You can try using Bluestacks on PC to emulate it.

Legal and viruses free, I've been using it for years, and you can ask the same question and people will say it's safe.

I think they dropped the franchise because they didn't have clear direction for it. There were skirmishes with the fanbase and probably small profit opportunities in terms of whole Ubisoft, so they shelved it. Making mobile games is profitable, and what's not a better way to attract at least some attention with a famous title in the headline. I mean everyone is doing it now.

I think Ubisoft "dropped" the franchise too early, if they kept supporting it for a few years more they would enter the era when remakes/remasters sell like hotcakes. But with their flagship titles earning millions, it's something they can easily mitigate.

It is really a shame that the franchise looses with hard rules of business, and yet again (like with 3DO before it) it's downfall came because of ill-timed decisions.

You might even call it a curse somewhat

PS: I think Heroes 6 is not popular with modders because of its half-assed code. At least I remember some discussions on the subject.

Also, HoMM6 is almost impossible to mod, even harder than H3 as far as I remember. And being less popular than H3 or H5, you can imagine that nobody really cares about modding H6 at this point.

Thanks, Fire Pal, Ill try it once I get home and will let you know if it works.

Hopefully I can change my home-region to be able to download the game from Google Play... but we dont have the list of OK regions so will have to go through trial and error

I also used it, to spare my phone's battery. It worked rather ok. Just had an issue with an update that made 'clicking' take like 1 second to answer. It was annoying, but it was fixed the next update.

And if the thing does not work in your region for now, you can assume it's divine providence trying to spare you from another disgraceful way to lose your time.
