The surprising Stronghold

It was announced that the fourth faction of the Heroes VI game is the Stronghold. This came as a big surprised for most people. Many “bets” were on Sylvan; others thought the Academy was to be the fifth race and a few hoped the Dungeon would be there.

Stronghold was not predicted by many (I think only the dwarves were less likely in the community opinion).

I like surprises; who knows what we should expect from the fifth race? :)

I am finally playing Kingdoms!

Might and Magic: Heroes Kingdoms was finally launched in my country. I am playing it for one hour and it is fun :) .

I am playing in the world called The Dragon Legacy – East. I even found an alliance: Alliance of Romania. I wonder if anyone will join… :)

If you want to play near me, you may register by following this link.

Will I ever play Clash of Heroes?

This game sound interesting, but was only launched for Nintendo DS. I waited for a PC or for a Wii version, but all the game was only announced for Xbox and PlayStation :( .

Now, I see that Amazon UK already offers a 60% discount for the DS version. For me, this looks like the end of life for this game.

Therefore, I doubt I will ever play it :( Too bad… I wanted to follow the story (even if it is as poor as the one in Heroes V).

Some name changes

It was announced some of the names of the Heroes VI creatures were changed:

  • the priestess has become a sister (a name I loved was replaced by a name I do not like);
  • the temptress has become a lilim (a name I did not like was replaced by a name I do not like either);
  • the excruciator has become a lacerator (a name I hated was replaced by a name I do not like);
  • the juggernaut ravager has become a ravager (a name I did not like was replaced by a name I like);
  • the bone guard has become a skeletal spearman (a name I did not like was replaced by a name I hate);
  • the grave ghoul has become a ravenous ghoul (a name I did not like was replaced by a name I do not like either);
  • the putrid lamasu has become a lamasu (a name I hated was replaced by a name I do not like);
  • the festering lamasu has become a putrid lamasu (a name I hated was replaced by a name I hate too).

Therefore, this batch of name changes was a disappointment for me. I hope for better name changes in the future (if there will be any).

  • praetorian – I do not like the name
  • crossbowman – I like the name
  • marksman – I like the name
  • priestess – I love the name

  • sun rider – I like the name
  • sun crusader – I like the name

Tyre 3:

  • seraph – I hate the name
  • celestial – I do not like the name

Therefore, I would first get rid of the vestal and the seraph.

Necropolis full line-up

The currently proposed names of all creatures in the Necropolis faction have been announced and their artworks were shown.

We know there are three tyres (currently called core, elite and champion). The first two tyres have three creatures; the last one only has one.

Tyre 1:

  • skeleton – I like the name
  • bone guard – I do not like the name
  • ghoul – I like the name
  • grave ghoul – I do not like the name
  • ghost – I like the name
  • spectre – I like the name

Tyre 2:

  • vampire – I like the name
  • vampire lord – I like the name
  • lich – I like the name
  • arch lich – I like the name
  • putrid lamasu – I hate the name
  • festering lamasu – I hate the name

Tyre 3:

  • fate spinner – I do not like the name
  • fate weaver – I do not like the name

In conclusion, I think some of the names should be changed. The lamasu should be the first to go… By the way, isn’t lamassu the correct spelling?

I am tired of MM-HK invitations

Ubisoft keeps sending me mails inviting me to join the players in the Might and Magic: Heroes Kingdoms game. Unfortunately, the game has not been launched in my country yet.

Every time I see one of those mail, my hopes go up and I am disappointed a few seconds later when I realize I cannot actually play. This has become frustrating.

How hard can it be to send those e-mails only to people in countries where the game was actually launched? I checked my Ubisoft profile; the correct country is in there…
