Fortress and Tazar, cheap town and armies(u said minimal chests) the mighties would kick ass as usual. Why would you put those 3 towns as options with minimal chests? they are the most expensive towns, Tower and rampart suck anyway

Rampart...

..a decent army and, if there are two Ramparts in the map, great economy...

...as for heroes, Ryland will do the trick...

...Centaur Captains can clear the area pretty quickly...

u said "good" towns, so I assumed you made a misprint and meant to say

1. Stronghold
2. Tower
3. Fortress

Right? or you really think rampart and tower are better than those

Ummm...rych, I think he got it at least 1/3 right.  Look where he put the Castle.  I'd take the Castle(what I'm most comfortable with).  I'm not worried about the Tower(too expensive) and the Rampart's extra troops don't mean a thing in a real battle.

Okay, you got me there.  I meant "Good" in terms of alignment, not in usefulness.

Happy, everybody?

Hey hey hey! Who's dissing the Rampart here, eh? Even if its not the strongest town (although it comes close) its still the offspring of mother nature, and its the forest! Come on, what can be better than a town with elves in it? ...along with other cheap but effective creatures in it?

If I play against AI, I pick tower coz I will win with any town anyway so I just pick my favorite town.

If I play against human players for fun only and not care about win/loss. I pick tower.

Then if I play against human player and I do want to win, I will choose castle this time.

Tower is too expensive and its heroes need time to develop (build up the mage guilds as well). So not good for this map.

Rampart and castle are actually quite close in this map but castle has some advantages:-
1). balanced resource requirements. If you ignore champion and focus on angel. It is possible to get and maybe even easier than rampart to get green dragon coz rampart rely on crystal too heavily. (one mine of all resources are flagged)

2). Since it is a medium open map, so you may be busy with defending your towns as well as attacking others and thus maybe no money to left at end of week for your treasury to work with.

3). Stable to boost movement will definitely give castle an edge in this type of map. If there is sea, castle will have no problem with it due to its shipyard and lighthouse.

4). Lv4 mage guilds is a disadvantage for L or XL map but may not be the case for this map. Actually, the game may well be ended before you can build lv5 guild.

Therefor I would definitely pick castle in this map. If Sir Mullich is not banned, I would be even happier.......

Posting in all caps is considered rude.

Given only these towns I will pick up Tower.

when I am rushed, it's usually with 3 angels on week 2.  Therefore on an open map, I'd probably be best off with castle ... then again I always pick random, so wish me luck!
