The best team

I think Academy is the best team because of Titans but it is upp to you and vote I don't want to vote it is kind of unfair

Havn't really gotten a chance to test all of them.  So far, however, I am really liking Stronghold and Necros.

I got my ToE last week, and after taking a quick look through all teams, I have found Haven to be best all-around. Of course, Stronghold is a wonderful faction too, with neat units, insane growth and great specials (I couldnt stop laughing when I first used Blood-eyed Cyclops goblin thrower...). But right now, Haven is da best!

Necropolis because of their new lich which has raise dead giving your hero time to cast more important spells and the new vampire is just terrific (except vs undead).

Academy is also a lot better than HoF days.

Theses two are the pro towns.

They have lifedrain and can put people to sleep. You know how useful it is to stop 100 of paladins ? . Very

I must say they all seem balanced(or almost). So they are all good in their way.. So ill just vote on my favourit faction: FORTRESS!! Forge and Fire

Is the sleep guaranteed? I didn't think it was. Note that for the chance to put a target to sleep, they've given up their no-retaliation ability. So if they fail to put those 100 Paladins to sleep, they become ex-Vampires right away.

mercedes_j_h you should vote if you have an opinion.

I am undecided.  I simply haven't played enough to know.

I had the best time with fortress when playing with alternates so far.

I find necro to be really weak compared to others. And the Torpor triggers way too rarely to count on it.
The main necro's problem is speed and no defence, so after the first turn vs any fast fraction (Sylvan, Haven) there is hardly anyone alive most of the time.

Torpor needs soldier's luck to be able to trigger often enough to count on the skill. and we all know luck is 2% chance for necros. but if you get luck and soldier's luck, the skill definetly is reliable.(well it doesn't work 100% of the time of course but much more often anyway )

oh and i voted for Haven, even tho any faction can be good if the player is.

Torpor dont trigger that often, but unlimited relitation is good yes, but still Princes are really really fast! And they are really nice! I like them, more then Lords...

Well there are some votes for every faction.  I conclude the game is equally imbalanced

Who is the best on an impossible size map?

Who is the best on a tiny map?

What is the best faction on a map of random size?  In other words you are going in blind, what's going to give you the best chance to win?

Which question are we answering?

No you don't need soldiers luck. Consider it a bonus if it triggers you really don't need it. The new vampire are much hardier and their high speed lets you leap across the battlefield to smash the enemies entire stack of smug looking archers. Since they have more hitpoints when a stacks attacks them, a lesser number of vampires are lost and therefore more vampires are raised when they retaliate, add that to the chance of a torpor. This has been my experience playing them in Heroic. They work in practice. While the combat mage looks like it should be a great ranged unit, blasting through ranged units with ease, they're mediocre in practice. I'll try and remember to save a nice replay of Vampire princes (without soldiers luck) dominating a fair battlefield.



Oh and I'd like to add that dungeon totally owns haven late game to the point where it ceases to be funny while academy have less to worry about spells. Some factions have a rock/paper/scissors relation.

They will not dominate in a good battle. They don't act fast enough so the less opponents they manage to put to sleep the easier it will be to wipe them out with a little focus. I've used them and it does not trigger as much as I'd like while their damage output is erratic. Maybe if they survive with numbers intact after a key unit has diminished a bit with frenzy or puppet.

Do Vampire Lords dominate in a good battle?
