Towns you feel... uncomfortable with.

there have probably been infinate topics like this one but what the heck? [if you do not approve, hang, shoot, kill, destroy, dehead, debody and cut me to pieces. oh! and dont forget to lock the topic ]

what towns do you feel pretty uncomfortable to have or start with. you can also post about towns you hate but anywho.
ill start:

Stronghold
Dunno why, feels really not me. im more a player of magic and tactics, and stronghold has everything EXCEPT magic and tactics [which explains why both their hero kinds dont really stand up in magic]. the creature i hate the most about em is... everything that includes goblins: Goblin, Wolf raider, Orc, Ogre. Roc's are really powerful but they miss some defense, cyclops have many benefits but they are very expensive [maybe only their building], and the behemoths have everything cept speed.

Tactics is a funny thing to complain about in a town that benefits most from it

I myself don't really like starting with castle. Humans. Humans everywhere. I play a fantasy game to see fantasy races gawd dammit, not humans! I've got enough of those in RL

hmmm, it depends what you mean by tactics, but the way I see it, Stronghold has alot of tactics. If you mean tactics in you head, the way you can play with your army and such, I find that all town are able to challenge you like this.

I agree with Solo for the inferno town. I don't like it either, but not for the same reason. I absolutely hate the magogs and I never upgrade them because of their fireball. I really hate familiars also. way to weak.
Last but not least, I despise fire magic. I would pick any other magic before it.

I feel uncomfortable with the Rampart. The male heroes don't go well with my mild homophobia.

i don't like tower and dungeon, cos they are too expensive(both money and resources).With tower mostly always i have to take a topia without titans just to have money for the upgrade and recruiting,same with naga banks early in the game.Genies are fragiles and if you play a battle Quick combat you'll lose a bunch of them cos the AI always puts them in front.Nagas are great but kinda slow for my taste.I don't like the heroes aswell,they all seem to get knoledge when advancing levels, Neela and Torosar are OK, but when i choose them as my main they don't seem to get earth magic(this sucks!!).
As for dungeon, I don't seem to be able to upgrade fast enough the lvl 7 dwelling, + i'm not very hapy with the damage distribution amongst units(harpies 1-4,minotaurs12-18,manticores18-22very weak!!!).I once played against a fellow that had dungeon and almost double the units, but i had armourer of the damned and the sphere of permanence.The stats were almost equal, but guess what??i won cos his cursed units were just lousy!!The heroes are not that great IMHO..Everybody's crazy about warlocks cos of met shower,ressurection or sorcery speciality.I think any good player will choose as main an overlord like gunnar,shakti or dace every day of the week.
Just my two cents...

Tower, great for early game - lots of Master G's and golems can clear your area sharpish, but genies die too easily and Titans are way too expensive. I'd rather have Archangels if I'm spending that kinda cash.

*Trivial:

I sometimes avoid playing as Rampart, Castle, and Stronghold simply because I play the RoE and SoD campaign maps too much. I stray away from Fortress at times because it just feels weird to me: wood and sulfur combo. Don't ask.


*General:

I avoid the Dungeon town because I often have plenty creatures available to buy and too little gold. Tower is more worthwhile for me since I spend on Nagas early on. But Titans are a lot less fun since everyone has more hit points than the previous game.

As said in some other posts I like Inferno the least, both because I never liked demonic creatures and because it's my least played town so I'm really not good with that town.

As for the damage distribution on the minotaur it's a bit wrong, it's 12-20 and highest in the level class so can't call it weak. Some others have 11-15 after all and the zealot even has 10-12. Curse hurts a bit yeah, but the damage will still be decent. The harpies do kinda cease to exist with a curse on them though but if that's the best my opponent can do I'm not too worried about it unless it's a mass curse. Armor of the Damned plus Sphere of Permanence would make me cringe too, but it's not exactly something that will happen every day.

My least favorite town is Fortress too...

but also, Stronghold. I always feel like my defence is too low. I like using 1-5th level units as much as i can, so I don't like relying only on 6 and 7th level... also why i don't like inferno.

we're discussing towns we're not good at because of our own personal style.

I love shooters too, which is why I'm also not a big fan of Stronghold.

Unless I'm getting the name wrong.

I mean the one with the hydras.

I finally got Complete today but my mom is keeping it from me till yule >.<

Pardon? how is that possible? unless its your own made map,a map you start with tons of resources and gold or you cheat its not possible [correct me if im wrong]. Someone mentioned [spell? im not very good at writing english] that the tower is one of the most expensive towns.

Why are you doing this acu?
you used to be funnier+ u had some great posts, but now all i see is you mocking othres.Let it go, man, there was enough controversion about this in the ToH forum.
BTW:for the ones that didn't realized just yet:
If you have gargoyles dwelling day 1 u still have to build:mage guild 1, golems,magi,naga,genies and only then giants(day 6, without counting the upgrade for the gremlins that most players do day 1).
P.S: it's nothing personal, i just didn't think you did that by mistake...and this isn't a good place to spam.

giants and castle is possible at basically every TOH map.

shadowguy, look around for strategy threads here in library. Such as take gold instead of experience, building order and nr of heroes.

And no, we are not interested about how much better your tactics are because just give it a shot online and youll learn how much time you spent talking crap.. like many others have here


i dont like dungeon town for building, trogs are a powerbank and goes great for fast attacking. But i dont like dungeon except that, just boring to play with hehe.

i didnt mean anything like that in tactics, i ment that they spend more on their melee attacks, their power etc [i should change that, sorry]. and about online gaming, i would try but gamespy dosent accept me.
