    In this week's Might & Magic X Legacy dungeon vote, after having narrowed down the options in last week's vote, voters get to choose what sort of enemies will populate the player-designed dungeon. Here's the full description:

    UNDEAD, ORCS OR BRIGANDS?

    The majority of you is obviously more into Non-Elementals than into the Elements (vote results here). You want a dungeon that is populated with Humans, Orcs or Undead, huh? You shall have it. Next step is to pick which type of monsters will dwell in your dungeon.

    SO WHICH MONSTER TYPE DO YOU PREFER?

    Option A: Undead.

    Spectres and Skeletons, Ghouls and Zombies. How can you kill that which has no life? Vote for this option if you think your dungeon should be the place to find out.

    Option B: Orcs.

    Maulers and Dreamwalkers, Goblins and Cyclops. They’re infamous for being rather undiplomatic, so if you vote for this option, make sure your party keeps their swords sharp and arrows notched.

    Option C: Brigands.

    Rogues and Brigands, Mercenaries and, of course, Renegade Mages. They’re human, but that doesn't mean they’re humanitarian. Not at all. So be aware if you pick this option.

    AND THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY DECIDED FOR YOUR DUNGEON:
    • The dungeon is being created from scratch
    • It will have a ruins tileset
    • It will have a balanced gameplay (balanced between combat and riddles)
    • The general theme is Non-Elemental
    Reminder: this vote is only related to one special dungeon of the game, not the game as a whole. There are more than twenty other dungeons waiting for you in Might & Magic X – Legacy

    So which monster type do you choose for your dungeon? Please vote here.​

    These votes are gradually becoming less and less obvious. Which enemy type are you voting for?

    I hate undead, orcs and thieves. So no matter the option, I'll enjoy smashing some heads together. Unless it's incorperal undead.

    And the answer to our misguided youths writing up these queries, you don't kill the undead, you destroy them!

    If there's anything more boring that undead/bandits/orcs is elementals. Which they even separated into two categories. It's not like there was much choice to begin with.

    But I was envisioning undead brigand orcs. My disappointment runs so deep that I think I will have to skip exploration of this dungeon for fear of reopening the wounds.

    But it's not elemental as in fire/water/earth/air/heart elementals but creatures related to the element. This could be an underwater temple filled with nagas, merfolk or whatever they have but now it's the most common dungeon enviroment with the most common monster types.

    A light or air dungeon could have been interesting. But unsurprising that braindead Might and Magic fans would be terminally dull and lap up that generica.

    Water sounded the coolest to me. C'est la vie.

    Well, the elementals together actually won the majority of the vote.

    Since people are voting for the most sucky things, it seems Undead will win this vote :M

    This whole community input notion is getting out of hand. Players got used to being betatesters, time to use their free time in development as well. And they will LOVE it, the feeling that their insignificant opinions finally MATTER!

    And since the point is sales numbers, the best content is the toothless generic crap that comes out of voting. You can go totally wrong with original ideas.


    I've been getting this feeling from lots of "kickstarter/indie" stuff lately, but this one isn't even disguised...
