My most hated factions list:

1) Fortress: Guard Post. The sole reason why I almost never make enemies random.
2) Academy: For some reason, I find Academy to be boring and annoying to play with...
3) Necropolis: Too strong in my opinion, and too... complicated build tree.
4) Sylvan: After getting ToE, I have actually started to enjoy playing with Sylvan (Yay! Long live the Wind Dancers!).
5) Dungeon: I somehow feel unsafe with their small numbers, and they just somehow dont fit my style of play..
6) Haven: Great units overall, best musics in the game, and fantastic hero (Mmmm... Laszlo...).
7) Inferno: My first love, I never restart a map if I take random towns and get Inferno (especially if I get Grok as a starting hero)
8) Stronghold: My favourite faction since I got ToE, I just find  Stronghold so much fun to play with, and it perfectly matches my style of play.

Sylvan because they're ^&$. I also get a lot of satisfaction from utterly crushing/annihilating dungeon players.

Voted Academy.

Throughout my years of playing Heroes V, I have NEVER won with this faction even on normal difficulty (their units aren't great and they are VERY expensive). Even the Titan's aren't that great when you come to think of it.

The only time I ever won with this faction was on an easy game against a fellow academy town.

Avoid this town at all costs.

This. Loath might come closer to the feelings I have for that faction. Not a particular fan of the Academy in H5 either (though I do like the Rakshasas), but the dwarves just...eeeeaaaggghhhh...

Voted Fortress, becouse they were BORING. Really boring. I havent played even 1 full game as Fortress in singleplayer, only multi and only when i have randomed them. Nuff said.

Haven on the other hand was my favourite faction since the 1st time i played Heroes Game. It was like 10 years ago when i played Heroes 3 for the first time, i just scrolled all the possible Factions and said "Castle, thats my faction". So ever since the Humans are my favourite.
If u think they are boring is Homm 5 try creeping Utopia week 3 with Guardian Angel only and some peasent fodder

Necro - always liked them, classik evil faction.

Orcs - me likes, great and unique faction, and the strange part is that they came after Fortress.

Dungeon - Not a bad faction imo and i enjoyed playing them every once and then, BUT i also felt like a snow when using those blood furies, so i was mainly playing them for the UBER nukes.

Academy - imo the best faction overall, maybe sometimes luck dependent(with spells etc). However i never liked how acas units look like, and i also felt playing academy as cheeting. Motw + divine vengeance .

Inferno - not for me, thanks. For some reasons i never enjoyed playing them. I think its becouse of their hard creeping time.

Sylvan - I liked Sylvan and its nature oriented theme, also they had a great town animation + music. What i disliked about them however was that they were a bit cheesy + the big Horns of the Sylvan heroes.
Those Horns were PWNING me everytime i saw them. Should i call my girlfriend ? Or should i stop playing PC games ? Ye, if you are 19-20 years old and you are playing PC games instead of beeing with your girlfriend YOU JUST ASK YOURSELF those questions everytime u see Horns.

Fortress by a landslide. I hate slow factions, both gameplay as battle-wise... and on top of that, their line-up is so uniform it simply bores me playing with them. Thanes and Magma Dragons, the only creatures I like from this town are practically mutually exclusive due to the ridiculous costs in crystals.

Inferno is a close second though, with their incredibly fragile army, expensive dwellings and the longevity dropping significantly after round two.

Academy hate is ridiculous though. I LOVE playing with them, they are probably my second favorite faction in the game, second behind Sylvan only.

I guess I voted back in 2007 or something, but Fortress. Ironically in Heroes 3, Fortress was my favorite.

I hate Runes, they are just too overpowered. Ressurection? Sure! Charge the whole length of the battlefield in one move? Sure! Magic Immunity? Sure! No retaliation? Sure!

Dwarves are just so boring to play with. I think it's the worst faction since Conflux in H3.

I don't like sylvan. They were so annoying in inferno campaign. I restarted third mission at least four times. On the end, I used cheats.

I like all the races and i think i wouldn't delete any of them, apart from that i've gotta say that barbarians are great and dwarves runes are weird to use but i chose the stronghold becouse i cannot see why those orcs who are made from bad human criminals with demon blood can be the most noble minded race i all Ashan.

Third Demon campaign mission is 2nd or possibly 3rd most beastly of any standard campaign mission of H5, HoF, and TotE.
3rd most beastly is Raelag's 3rd (0 castles vs. 7, anyone?)
1st most beastly goes to Kujin's 1st (I don't even...)
This is my experience, anyway. I've beaten every mission on Heroic except that stupid Kujin one. It's evil. EVIL!

EDIT: 4 most beastly is probably Wulfstan's 3rd. Craziest castle seige ever. I was down to a single stack of defenders, and I had to keep using Rune of Resurrection while hitting stuff with Wulfstan and using random runes to try to tap enough mana for a fireball.
Good times.

Third mission of the inferno campaign is really tough. You(Agrael) start with small pack of units against well prepared sylvan towns and units.Also the neutrals numbers are increasing in extraordinary way as the weeks goes on. Gilraen is coming to get ya when you least expect with increased number of units which is big amount at this early stages of game. The best way of defeating this misson is to start early game rush to conquer the towns, with bit of luck in killing neutrals with minimal casualties its possible to gather enough powerful army to face Gilraen. Even then its slim changes really. You definately need to be at the top of your own gameplay to defeat this mission.

When third mission of the inferno campaign is tough the far hardest mission is sylvan campaign mission five where you start two sylvan towns against full pack of necro towns 6 or 7 if i remember correctly. While you are busy killing neutrals and getting through the garrisons Nicolai is creeping out in his own island growing stronger and stronger as the weeks go by with numerous stack of skellie archers and if you are too late attacking him incredible amount of spectral dragons which makes this mission a real headache compared to other ones. One way of defeating him easily is to stat up your main hero Findan in the previous missions of the sylvan campaign that means collecting every stat up thats possible.

I do!

I defeated Nicolai even in 1.0 version (Normal difficulty) when he had 7,000 Skeleton Archers!

My strategy on Heroic was to take the first town when I was ready to kill the druids so there was only one elven week

And I think 3rd misson of Raelag's campaign is the hardest. Especially on heroic. We have got 2 heroes on 18th level, no towns, enemy - 7 or 8 heroes on 22th level with the same number of towns... I haven't passed this mission on Heroic yet

What fraction do I hate?

It's Fortress, I think. Too fat, to similar, to hard, and too easy to play
