Heroes of Might and Magic

Can the fans of the Heroes of Might and Magic series save the game from Ubisoft?

It's one of the oddest things I've ever seen, really. Here's an excerpt from the item I saw over at Blue's News (
Worldwide, Jan. 26, 2006. A group of Heroes of Might and Magic community Websites today launched a collaborative effort to persuade Ubisoft executives to delay the launch of their highly anticipated title Heroes of Might and Magic 5. SaveHeroes.Org is a concerted community effort to further that cause.

This effort, and the reasons behind it, started largely because of the open beta test, which started on GameSpy on Monday, January 23rd...

Wow. The open beta started about, oh, five minutes ago. Talk about a resounding lack of confidence.

This is very unusual, but if my fan base was telling me not to release my game yet because it appeared to suck, I think I'd listen to them. Carefully.

The link to the site is, but it's down right now because they've exceeded the allocated bandwidth by what I'm sure is a mind-boggling amount.
