Poll Question:
Which HoM&M5 Faction/Town do YOU PLAY the most?

So I wonder, which HoM&M5 faction is played by most of the memebers of HC? So i made this poll to find out, the question is simple: Which Heroes of Might and Magic Faction/Town do YOU play the most? This is not "Which Faction/Town is better" or "What's your favorite Faction/Town".

Mine is....Haven, because I'm naturaly good with them, therefore i play them.

Responses:
Academy
Dungeon
Fortress
Haven
Inferno
Necropolis
Stronghold
Sylvan

I think thread like this already exists but whatever, ill post anyway.My answer is inferno, they are challenging to play with and have that difference from necropolis.Offtopic:necropolis is booring cause they are heavily imbalanced with endless armies, dark energy flowing like fountain of fortune, no change to beat dark magic oh and they can reraise their units like no tommorow.

I agree with DS 'bout the overpowered Necropolis, especially in TotE. I voted Sylvan, it's not the town that fists me most (that's Haven), nor is it my favourite town (that's Academy), but the town I play the most, and in which I eventually specialised. Sylvan really fits me: Lethal low levels, strong Shooter/casters in midlevel and real tanks in highlevel. Only downsides: average lvl 7 (Green dragon), low SpP and attack, low growth and the insane wood cost. Sylvan also has one of the cheapest lvl 7 dwellings, which I really like.

SYLVAN !! Long life the flower-sniffers!!

It's funny, I agree with none of the above. Necro is decent, it's sylvan that is overpowered against necro if the game takes more than 4-5 weeks. While it is rather crappy in earlygame, try to beat a magic or warmachine rush then. That average tier 7 can decide the battle with tactics and a lucky strike in the beginning and as for the spellpower it's more than you could hope for with high druids.

Where dark magic is considered it's not hard to counter.

I think it's the sylve (in duel mode) the reason being it's easy to build an overpowered hero (I still haven't found how to build something really scary with some factions like stronghold, inferno or academy, but I begin to have some clues)

Sorry.This is first thing I am thinking when fighting against necropolis:



And to be honest, Sylvan is only that can efficently beat necropolis,necro gets medicore tank AT TIER 1!they get field medic and the incroporeal is out of hand.Warlock will be crushed by dark magic,Academy will be crushed regardless of strategy (unless its bad necropolis player),Runemage will be rushed to death, Inferno puts a little fight but still wont stand the magic.Now i got to say:Necropolis would be more balanced with weaker dark magic and less growth.

Only sylvan? Warlock actually has the advantage unless they get all elemental resistance arties, necro can't bring back as many units as they lose and dungeon is sure to rush them even if both are fast factions. WIth academy it's a balanced battle, runemages can kick their butt if the game is allowed to drag on, it's only inferno that I am sceptic about. And even the dark vulnerable orcs can destroy them if the game takes long.

Where this info comes from? Toh, both from personal experience and seeing replays from others. I'm not saying that necro are weak, just that unless they attack in midgame they are just a normal race.

That is exactly what they do.This comes from personal online experiences (Was not playing against bad players either).I CAN'T be that good,I went several battles against runemages,wizards and warlocks,only once lost to runemage who had been lucky with outpost.Sylvan is one of factions I can hardly win.Inferno does have hard time beating them but with good initiative and Attack they will.

Hehe, DS, Necro isn't strong they are so so so easy... they are weak! You have only 2 really strong creatures as necro player you have to keep them well Liches and Vampires. Any hero with decent rush power will take you down pretty easy. This mean damaging heroes like ranger, warlock, etc. Also Haven can beat you pretty easy, since they can clean all your dark effect (paladins, light magic, zealots, etc...), same for other light casters - wizzards and runemages.

Voted Sylvan. Hunters may be fragile nevertheless Sylvan units are awesome. They hit fast and they hit hard.

Necropolis is not that scary unless you convert enough creatures to get a really HUGE army, otherwise the undead end up just plain dead. Raise Dead will never be enough to compensate for the losses and Dark Magic won't annihilate an entire army (although Frenzy can be a real pain).

A year ago I was saying those things and you insisted that I simply don't know how to play with Necro. Anyway, I play the most with Academy. I don't know if they are the best faction of all, but I enjoy having a magical game. I even tired recently some of the tactics given in the Academy stretegy threads, and really enjoyed it. Elvin's idea of Vampiric Phoenix is the best one so far. Anyway, since I play for fun (and sometimes for winning), this what comes out...

BTW: Aren't there are already topics for this?

It's a shame you can't recruit Phoenixes or Death knigths (think them with vampirism ).

I really don't know, I like something in all of them... I do like some factions better than others but theres no faction that stands out as an absolute favorite, so I've decided to just play random from now on

No there ain't, and if it is, they are really good hidden(i checked the 10 first pages in Temple of Ashan).

Guys, this thread is not "Which faction/town is better" thread and it's not "What is your favorite town/faction" thread. This is is "which faction/town do you play the most" in other words what faction/town is the one you have played the most.

But your favorite faction is the one you play the most with, and the one you think is the best. I see no point in creating another thread like this, except of checking again what people like the best, after TotE...

I had it earlier than he did so he should change But anyway, I guess I should change it anyway as Academy isn't really my favorite town anymore

edit: changed to Slayer. Happy?

Oh really? Well, Necropolis has counters for almost anything. Vampires are great strike teams, and zombies are nothing but fodder. I love Necropolis. However, the faction i play the most is the Fortress. Yes! Now that's a great faction. Just think of the fire burning your little orcs to a nice crisp.
