I didn't say Necropolis was weak.Yes,and they do have counters for ALMOST everything,but just think about it, before your hero even gets a chance to do anything,half of your creatures on the battlefield will be dead.
What about Runamages,I hate fightning against them,too strong with all the runes...

Hehe, that's a fortunate truth. Runes are the greatest weapon against any faction. That's why I play the Fortress so much. Its amazingly easy to beat people with the Fortress due to those wonderful little insignias. woot woot.

Thanatos change your avatar again!

Let's see, who do I play (wait is this a poll?)

I suck with Haven so they're out.  I'm ok at Sylvan, Orcs, Necro.  I like Inferno concept but find the actual play boring.  Dungeon is fun, Academy is ok, Fortress is pretty fun.

So if I get to pick it comes down to Dungeon and Fortress.  Dungeon was my first h5 love so I'll pick that.

I love fortress!!
Imo it's the funniest faction there is. There aren't that many who play them right? Cause it's fun to be a little different

My toplist of played factions

1. Fortress
2. Haven
3. Sylvan
4. Academy
5. Dungeon
6. Necropolis
7. Inferno
8. Stronghold

Hmm... Might factions in top, although the pure might faction is never used. But then again, I tend to use both magic and might when using Fortress, Haven and Sylvan.

Conclusion: I like factions who have strong might heroes but still good access to magic, and factions who rely heavily on their creatures. (Fortress-runes, Haven has units who help each other, like Squires)

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...


No....look at this

Factions as i think of them:

Haven(Played the most)
Inferno(best in my opinion)
Academy(favorite)
Necropolis(easiest to play A.k.a. noob faction)

see? The one you play the most dosen't neccesarily need to be your favorite and the one you think is best, i know around 10 people who play HoM&M and they usally don't play their favorite, nor do they think their favorite is the best.

I play random maps a lot and I don't choose my faction.
Interesting to see that I got assigned one town *very* often so far.
It is:  Academy

So my vote goes to Academy

Necropolis(easiest to play A.k.a. noob faction)

when i play i use every faction. right now i use haven the most (killing ballista). but it starts to get boring so i'm gonna try necro (raise a horde or two of skellies). but the best faction is dungeon. killing overpowered spells and good creatures. only bad thing is low growth. inferno is the fauvorite it is the most challenging one and i like challenges. and some facts just for fun. the first faction i ever played with is dungeon in heroes 3. it would have been inferno if my brother hadn't picked it before me.

I really don't see why everyone seems to think that Necropolis is the "easy" faction to play. It's a rushing faction, and we all know that most newbies like to turtle. Also dark magic isn't as straightforward to use as destructive magic or light magic, it requires careful timing and thinking when to cast which spell on which unit. The generally low mana reserves of necros and the fact that they rely heavily on said dark magic because they don't have the might skills and stats to compensate for it makes this even more important. Before dark energy was introduced a bad necro player might have gotten away from defeat simply by raising such absurd amounts of skellie archers that an opponent simply collapsed under the sheer numbers of them but that trick doesn't work anymore.

No, the newbie faction in my opinion is definitely Haven. It's quite straightforward to play, just defend and let the opponent kill him or herself on your wall of absurd defense stats and powerful retaliations or just charge ahead aided by righteous might, divine strength and retribution. Also, they can shrug off any curse cast on them either through pallies, zealots or the hero casting (mass) cleansing and they are a good turtle faction because they really shine in late game.

necro is the newbie faction cause the only thing you have to do is to level up your hero some levels (gain expert dark). then you kill those hardworking peasent neutrals get a decent army and go kill with your cursed dark magic. this means necro=easy win.

Nah, Necropolis is hard to master. The faction's monsters are generally weaker than the others and careful use of Dark magic is needed. Necro players have to be skilled

Necro is the newbie faction because only noobs would think it's so easy But if they play a map where mines are guarded by lots/horde of tier 3 I'm curious to see how fast they will be.

At first I thought Necropolis was easy and kinda fun too, but I never used them, I went for Haven straight away

Then I moved on to Sylvan for a while, when I realized that I sucked with them and HoF cam out, I switched to Fortress.

When I bought TotE I was kinda disapointed on how many unique dwarf skills had been given to other factions, like Snatch, and especially Ignite, they're fire worshippers! Leave their fire skills alone!
But still, Fortress remains my favourite and most palyed faction

elvin my point is it is easy to train with necro. especially if you are a newbie. they got good dark powwer and can raise some hordes of armies. it is easy to train with them. but you might think how you like. i'm just saying my point.

I think it was the noob faction before TotE, when each hero began with the "resurrect true" spell.
I don't know how strong it is in TotE, but probably less than before.

I make Necro the noob faction by playing it with Markal on regular maps!

To tell the truth no faction is easy to play if you are playing competitively.

Back in 2.1 where you could abuse motn it used to be. I could attack almost everything and keep my mana full in the end of the combat, one horde of marksmen after the other. Especially with Naadir that could stall with his ghosts.

But now the lack of mana is evident and you must be very careful how you spend it. That 'free' raise dead you could cast at least once in each battle made all the difference.
