AuthorTranscript of Interview with Maxim (adm) - 27/9/2017 (part 1)
Hi. Some times i write transcript of Interview.

A lot of time ago i played here with my second character. Right now i have some time and write half transcript in russinan. And half of russian transcript into very short english so it's like 1/4 of full Interview.

A lot of player knew english better then me, but maybe this will be intersting for you. And maybe i add all another part of Interview.

***
Interviewer: Hi. We have a lot of questions. Some of them repeated, so read please last interview. We think, soon we will have regular fast and short interview. Glad to see you Maxim.
Maxim (adm): Hi all, hi Miriy and rad-ant.

Interviewer: 1st question about future flash. As we knew adobe close supporting this technology. What shall you do?
Maxim (adm):We think to go HTML5, maybe at november will be ready version with hits, some creatures. At this version will be no magic or special abilities.

Interviewer: Soon will be full avoiding from flesh?
Maxim (adm): That's the plan. We study this question with performance.

Interviewer: About mobile game version, what's the news?
Maxim (adm): It works with question about html5

Interviewer: Will be some like mobile web browser with heroes and with no flash?
Maxim (adm): Yes

Interviewer: Will you work at HTML5 yourself or you will find who will work with it?
Maxim (adm): At first we need to create main structure, and next who knows.

Interviewer: Reform GTief, what it will be?
Maxim (adm): Is in our plan. Less time and cooldowns, and some balance. Dwarf will be have harder to play in this guild. All will be averaging.

Interviewer: Dwarfs have a lot of problems in guilds like hunters and mercenaries' guild and it is fair to have the advantage in Thieves' guild.
Maxim (adm): It was not what we wanted.

Interviewer: And what they have to do?
Maxim (adm): They can play in this guild, just don't have so much wins in a row.

Interviewer: Cost battle in this guild will change?
Maxim (adm): We will try to save old cost.

Interviewer: Guild Rangers, any reforms?
Maxim (adm): Any problem in this guild?

Interviewer: Will this guild have reform too?
Maxim (adm): Need to see statistics. Maybe the same rules, times. Change difficulty from time to time.

Interviewer: Next question about storyline ( campaigns), right now i don't have enough time, maybe another user can help me? Have you something to say?
Maxim (adm): If someone want to help with it, he can write to rad-ant. Need some knowledge about XML, dialogs, logic.

Interviewer: What is reform GThieves date?
Maxim (adm): Soon. Maybe event and reform, or two events and next reform.

Interviewer: Players ask you to watch feedback, and make fast changes with problems. Looks statistics
Maxim (adm): Will work with it.

Interviewer: What's the news about "weeks" events?
Maxim (adm): Right now we need to create all list "weeks" events. And we think about "day" events.

Interviewer: Can you give better gifts, than player add friends in game, registration by ad links? Any newbie gifts, bonus in GLaborers or Ghunters?
Maxim (adm): Reward from friend registration is not low.

Interviewer: Any bonus for GLaborers or Ghunters for newble players?
Maxim (adm): Maybe.

Interviewer: Maybe you can add in newbie rewards some artifacts?
Maxim (adm): Maybe.

Interviewer: Players initiative group, what's the news?
Maxim (adm): Productivity, but last time we have a lot of works with event. Good ideas, some will be done soon.

Interviewer: Question about magic nature. Some magic fractions don't play with magic, like elf, or necromancer.
Maxim (adm): Right now don't work with it. We have plan to add new spells, like minefield and magic shield.

Interviewer: At what level you plan add it?
Maxim (adm): Minefield at low levels, maybe 3 magic school.

Interviewer: What about add opportunity summon more elementals, or bigger fire wall?
Maxim (adm): If play with elementals - will be defender's game. Want more tactics.

Interviewer: Fire wall is
Interviewer: Fire wall is defence?
Maxim (adm): We did not cut it, as i knew.

Interviewer: Do you have plan give opportunity to rotate fire wall spell?
Maxim (adm): Maybe, will think about it.

Interviewer: As you knew, right now we have a lot of defenders plyers. At small Minor Tournament and Commanders' guild.
Maxim (adm): After MT we will look statistics.

Interviewer: How do you think you will balance it?
Maxim (adm): Some changes with balance, chsnge blood shaman, ogre hitpoints. Changes with pit flame, change damage from magic damage to physic. Maybe some changes in another fractions, and changes with army, of course.

Interviewer: Question about chaos magic.
Maxim (adm): Will look. Maybe we add hero Initiative by artifacts.

Interviewer: Gifts artifacts?
Maxim (adm): Shop artifacts.

Interviewer: Do you have plan to add sale magic aftifacts?
Maxim (adm): Why we need add magic sale artifacts, magic must work with current sale aftifacts.

Interviewer: Well, at my level people play with cold ring. it is the problem!
Maxim (adm): We will fix it.

Interviewer: How?
Maxim (adm): Will add some alternative.

Interviewer: And it will have less stats?
Maxim (adm): No, just don't have the same pierce through magic resistances

Interviewer: Question about classic necromancer. At high level no good perks in tree.
Maxim (adm): Yes, question about they don't have alt build to play. And if we create too good nature build, playes will play only this build.

Interviewer: The problem is about high level, few necromancers at top.
Maxim (adm): Problem is not at perks, it is in fractions balance. If we add atacker tree, we will take off some army, because it is need for balance.

Interviewer: You can use quiz in user profile. Some like "are you ready if you fractions will change?
Maxim (adm): Yes we can, but user can set "yes" and after that " we don't like changes you did, it's not what we ween, change it back!"

Interviewer: Next question about https://www.lordswm.com/art_info.php?id=skill_drink about 13 skill level. User guilds think, that no reason to play with 13 skill level, better play for 10-11 skill level all fraction, then play one at 13. Maybe if one have 13 level, and another have this potion, max 11 level skill level add?
Maxim (adm):I think, if player have 13 skill level, he have a lot of skills another fractions. So it is not a problem.

Interviewer: Questiuon from players, who have 13 main, and 5 belt skills another fraction, and they play agains 10-11 belts + 12 skill by skill drink.
Maxim (adm): I realy don't knew how much players play with mono fraction.

Thank you very much for you time! ^^
A few interesting points:

* Incomplete HTML 5 version will be out by November, and in some time, the entire game will be moved to it.

* A change will be made to TG, within 1-2 months at most it seems. After this change, dwarf will be a bit weaker in TG as expected, and cooldown after loss will be shortened. In my opinion this doesn't seem like a very large change to factions other than dwarves.

* Something about "weeks" events and "days" events.

My questions:

What does a change to HTML 5 really mean? Would the graphics, looks, etc. of this site change? Can someone show me an example picture or something comparing flash and HTML 5?

Any idea what this "weeks" and "days" events thing?
Weeks and days events is about one o several tasks. Like kill all 27 undead from any type of battle. Or kill all women shaman type creature at one day.
Interviewer: You can use quiz in user profile. Some like "are you ready if you fractions will change?
Maxim (adm): Yes we can, but user can set "yes" and after that " we don't like changes you did, it's not what we ween, change it back!"

^this maxim guy knows his stuff :p
thx alot ^^
quite surprised - and a bit disappointed by these statements:

Interviewer: Guild Rangers, any reforms?
Maxim (adm): Any problem in this guild?

Interviewer: Will this guild have reform too?
Maxim (adm): Need to see statistics. Maybe the same rules, times. Change difficulty from time to time.


Either it's a translation issue, or it seems devs forgot the "truth to be told, it's due for rebalancing" said over one year ago.

And also, the "if it ain't broken, it needs no fixing" doesn't work here: in the end, for the same guild level, TG gets more ini than RG. That *is* a problem.
Yeah its not clear what maxim means by any problem in this guild?

Its really seems like he sees it to be ok...

And i don't think though that there is any ranger in LWM because of them low stats they provide,
its seriously needs to be amended D:
What? RG is perfectly fine. Choosing between RG and TG is not like choosing a faction, as in they are not meant to be equal... obviously TG is better. Maxim is right, RG doesn't need any fixing.

However what he can do, is when someone makes a change from RG to TG, instead of starting at 0 TG points, they should have an option of starting with 50% or something like that of the total RG points they already have.
Good to see they want to balance tribal shamans and dark barb's ogres.
I find it funny that the interviewer says that tamer is OPed but then asks to buff the trolls and eyes.

Thanks for the transcript btw Pixi!
interviewer whine about cold ring,funny
go buy it from market,if you can't, your problem
What? RG is perfectly fine. Choosing between RG and TG is not like choosing a faction, as in they are not meant to be equal... obviously TG is better. Maxim is right, RG doesn't need any fixing.



Bro rangers guild and thieve's guild are meant to be same...

The only thing is that they should just give more level to RG
Bro rangers guild and thieve's guild are meant to be same...

Are you joking? One requires and investment of 500k or 80 diamonds, the other is free... and you think they are meant to be the same?

for Fallen Atheros:
Well... admins have mentioned earlier that the didn't intend the ring to end up being so expensive. Increasing cpb again and again doesn't do any good. Maxim btw said that new shop rings will be introduced, with stats as good as RoC, but without magic pierce.
for randomr1:
High market price was to be expected. They keep decreasing repair price from donation arts and every time those new arts get higher market value because it can be used hundreds of times before not being worth repairing. That and the overpoweredness of ROC compared to other shop rings or even some event rings.
Thanks for the translation Pixi, really appreciate it. :)

Interesting to see the game is getting closer and closer to HTML5, and I agree with Randomr, TG and RG are two different guilds and should not be equalised.
Am I the only one who has seen in this Interview how Maxim implied an actual Buff/Rework to Unholy Necros... Btw (In Post 2#)? Omg, awesome... XD
Since Interviewer mentions them being non-existant at MT and CG at all, which I agree with.
Sorry if I always talk about this topic in Forum :P But there is "Proof" this time :))

I was about to Quote it... But it would be too long:
They do mention Nature Magic not being used at all, and who do, fail blatantly.
Interviewer mentions being a very low amount of magic items, compared to offence items, which Maxim does not acknowledge.
Then Interviewer says Magic wielders do go with RoC because its better for them, then Maxis says "Yes, we'll see about that", regarding adding more items with Magic Penetration or Defence, or stuff like that.
And he talks about Mine Field (Spell from HoMM V), and an "Horizontal Firewall", OMG! XD

They also talk about Necros losing "Power" at higher Lvls because of Talents, where many Factions can get Expert Luck, Morale, and Offence, almost.

Also a Nerf to Dwarves regarding TG, which also (Somehow) implies a Buff to Factions that are bad in TG (Knights, Necros) towards TG, because it would be "Silly/Weird" to change effectiviness of Dwarves only in TG.

Im surprised by the amount of stuff getting changed this year (And the intention of Admins to change more stuff), Tbh.
Too much hate for dwarves from admins , They are already lagging compared to alt classes in pvp which excells at all aspects of pvp and their main class excells at pve.

Dwarves on the other hand sucks conpletely at pve , the only pve guide manageable was TG , and they are nerfing dwarves is this area aswell to make the faction unplayable. I used to doubt but now i dont have any doubt why I lost all of my interest into this game.
