I would like to propose renaming the Heroes of Might and Magic series tags as following:

Since 6th game official title has been changed to Might & Magic Heroes, we could also rename (I've checked there are a lot of and usage in place of & in tags, for example ):

However, this renaming is impossible for , but it was used only once and I don't know if we need separate tag for this expansion at all.

For some of these tags synonyms with roman digits exist ( https://gaming.stackexchange.com/tags/heroes-might-magic-3/synonyms ), they should be updated as well.

Phew! What a mess.

The tags have all been renamed to arghtype & Steve's suggestions, with one difference - Might and Magic X: Legacy continues to use 'X' instead of '10' as that's the official title.

Regarding synonyms however, some of the old shorter tags weren't that relevant as synonyms ("might-and-magic-2" is still within "might-and-magic-2-another-world" etc), so I have replaced them with the below synonyms that either utilise the full game's subtitle or add common series & community abbreviations:

Might & Magic

Heroes of Might and Magic

Might and Magic: Heroes

Hopefully this helps sort out this confusing mess of a series!

  • Thank you for retagging this confusingly named series. I’m sure this will clear up some of the confusion. – Stevoisiak Jan 19 '18 at 15:55
  • I had suggested using 10 for Might and Magic X for consistency with the other series tags. Most games in the series use numerals, all of the tags had used numbers. – Stevoisiak Jan 19 '18 at 15:57

    @Steve - I would have preferred to change them all to Roman numerals given that the series uses them, but instead I decided to follow the conventions that were set on the preexisting tags as that's how the community had been using them previously: the old tags all used Arabic numerals except for Might & Magic X. There could be a time to discuss whether to alter them to be Roman or Arabic but for the purposes of getting the lengthening done I had to make a call - that seemed like the fairest compromise for now. – Robotnik Jan 21 '18 at 4:26
  • A fair decision. I seem to be in the minority for preferring numbers over numerals, so it makes sense to stick with the numeral – Stevoisiak Jan 21 '18 at 4:54

The Might & Magic: Heroes series naming is a bit complicated. The series is technically a combination of both the Heroes of Might and Magic series and the Might and Magic series.

I agree with the suggested renames, but would like to propose a few additions. (I've classified the games as best I can by series)

Might & Magic (1986-2002; 2012-present)

Heroes of Might and Magic (1995-2008)

Might and Magic: Heroes (2011-present)


There are a few tags which already use the full title or would exceed the character limit. These can probably be left unchanged.
