    They see some popular game on mobile and try to replicate that success with a brand name.

    There is no pain you are receding
    A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
    You are only coming through in waves
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
    When I was a child
    I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye
    I turned to look but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown
    The dream is gone
    I have become comfortably numb

    Who the fuck buy those games? Who are the people that are making Ubisoft destroy this series over and over again? I want all of them dead. Fuck them. :argh::killitwithfire::imperialscum::timetoburn::flamesaw::killit:<- this hand sign is wrong, btw.

    There has been an M&M themed shovelware title every year since 2017. At this point you just have to admire their dedication.:hero:

    You have to admire Ubitards, they're almost as incompetent as EA when it comes to holding franchises that are literally gold mines and free money generators, while still managing to bring out crap no one cares about and that alienates the remaining fanbase very effectively.
    Soon Ubisoft will just sit on the franchise and effectively cock block anybody competent to use it, the same way EA sits on Dungeon Keeper.

    Is the Might & Magic really a gold mine? I mean the games were pretty niche, the latest Heroes game weren't that well received and it's not as if any of the recent spin-off had any particular success.

    I think Ubisoft is just chain building those mobile games and slap on some of the M&M label just to raise their profile a little.

    The latest games weren't well received because the last good Heroes game was 5. Since then Ubisoft has just managed to create utter crap, I'm still mad at myself for falling for their Heroes 3 HD scam.

    War for the Overworld was a respectable successor to Dungeon Keeper. My understanding is they even got the same voice actor to play the main guy. It wasn't a perfect game but it was enjoyable.

    I'm not sure if thinking Heroes 5 was a good game shows your lack of taste, or demonstrates the level of utter flaming dogshit the games after it were to make even 5 look good.

    I'm not to fond of Heroes 5 myself if I want to be perfectly honest, mostly because the creature design and the switch to 3D wasn't too much to my taste. But the thing that can be said about 5 is that it tried to be somewhat like 3, which the majority saw as the peak of the series. The whole point is that 5 is a masterpiece compared to anything after it, not to talk about how 2 & 3 look when you compare them with the newer ubicrap titles.

    Autochess AND Battleroyale? So they just mashed together 2 the most declined genres of the last decade and slapped a M&M logo on it?

    I mean what is the TA for that? 10-12 yo zoomers would be scared away by old IP and no self-respecting fan of the original M&M or HoMM series would touch that with a 10 feet pole
