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.

Actualy the alt's have brought the kick to it,now its totally OP, competing with sylvan about the crown of OP.

Indeed. Necro is not overpowered, it's not even strong.
Playing necro you have a chance to win only attacking very early or very late gathering army from several towns - and this is possible ONLY when your opponent lets you. Creatures are weak and slow and raising dead cannot compensate huge loses. While casting spells you have always dilemma dark magic or raising dead. Casting several dark magic spells demands time or can be cleansed easly so the biggest problem is that often you are dead before you weaken him enough. We all know that.

Necro is not too underpowered also, just difficult. One can win playing them but this don't make them overp.

I agree with that but disagree on the "easily" part. I still have a hard time cleansing Frenzy.

Yeah, frenzy can be a seriuos pain in the @$$ but, most cases, it will not win a battle for necro. Necro has a hard time against offensive magic heroes and heaven armies so he is not a good choice for every game. Unless sb is in a sporty mood

But thanks to that playing Necro is not boring, I enjoy this faction sometimes but generally prefer Sylvan - swift, offensive army is awesome fun too

So do I. Still when you have Expert Attack and Expert Luck and LOTS of War Dancers (thanks to Mentoring and Battle Commander) it hurts quite a bit when they get Frenzied and attack some other stack.

Frenzy can't be cleansed, but it's not a wunderwaffe. When the armies mix together, the frenzied stack may end up attacking your units anyway. Of course it's better for it to attack a random stack instead of the one the player would go after, but it won't win you a game.

Of course situation looks different when enemy has one extremely strong stack which he relies on.. or Untamed Cyclopes.

Man I just love to cast frenzy on them.

My most played factions are
Necropolis(what a suprise)
Sylvan (killing enemy before they even acts is fun)
Dungeon (hero turn = 1 dead stack)
Inferno (ridiously powerful in late game with light magic)

Sylvan and academy seems to be most played factions by now

Academy for me...very easy to master after I have played a lot with them and I love the fact that they can have a good start, a better mid game and a shining late game. Academy won my heart

Done. Sorry Ive bad english. For aside those factions which I allready mentored, Academy is fun to play to. Haven and fortress are only factions which I really dont like to play.

Havent used they ultimate much, but since its very easy to get high morale(+5 or more) I dont think that necros ultimate is SO strong. Army with +8 morale still have positive morale after howl of terror(+banshee howl). Necros have good heroes but not OP. There should be hero specialised on skeletons. +1 atk and def every second lvl and 1+ hp every five level(if ingvar hasHP boost also why necros cant?).

That would actually make sense!
If a necromancer becomes more experienced, he should be able to raise more powerful undead.

Personally I play dungeon most, as I've always valued magic more than might. I also enjoy playing Inferno and Necropolis alot.
Now frankly if speaking about newb factions I'd say it's Heaven, because it requires the least creeping skill/strategy (crossbowmen + squires and voila). Necro on the other hand brings more variey as the mage guild evolves and gives access to diffrent kinds of dark and summoning magic which are fun to play. Being good at necro is real hard btw, because many factions have a good might and sometimes magic advantage over you.
