Necropolis : The most imbalanced race ever ? - HOMM 2-6

While Heroes has always been a game based alot on luck and randomness, there is nothing that come close to Necropolis.

While the race itself is appealing, its main mechanics totally depends on the map and the stack available.

The more stack of small creature there are, the strongest Necropolis are.

The problem is that on large - xxl map on heroes 2-5, necro is way too overpowered.

The ability to farm neutral with Vampire so easily, the fact that in Heroes 3 you get Heroes with Skeleton boost (Thant Galthran and so on etc..) and the Vampire -again !- conversion in Heroes 4 is way over the top.

In Heroes 6 at the moment, Necro is not OP, but beyond OP - broken.

Let's tell in order of Balance:

Heroes 2 - Necro very strong - but Map dependant
Heroes 3 - Necro banned - but Map dependant
Heroes 4 - Necro banned - any map
Heroes 5 - Necro strong - balanced game though
Heroes 6 - Necro banned - any map

I can say clearly, that Necro has never been balanced. It's a random faction that can be very bad on small map and very few neutrals though.
Necro, simply put, is the epitome of i-m-b-a-l-a-n-c-e.

not rain down on your parade but all 3 factions with Retribution aura will murder necro. that and proper corpse blocking and necro is slaughtered.

Also on homm V base version granted necro was powerfull but in ToE they got nerfed into oblivion with the necro points

I know this is a few months old but dont forget in heroes 3 theres the combination artifact for necros. 3 artifacts (Amulet of the Undertaker (neck), Vampire's Cowl (shoulders), Dead Man's Boots (feet).) that on their own give a 30% bonus to the necro skill but combine those and get 30% of battlefield dead are resurrected as Skeletons. If hero already has the Necromancy skill, then the percentages are added and skill level determines what will be resurrected: Basic - Zombies, Advanced - Wights, Expert - Liches.

Ive played one map where I ended up with a few thousand liches, I think it was "Vikings!"

With Thant, any map is good. Because your skeletons NEVER die.

So on a side note, why do you all hate necros? I personally love killing a lvl7 stack in 1 hit with my hundreds of skeletons.

In H5, Necro is only average. Other than that, probably true.

In h5 necro is fastest creeper, but thats the only thing about them. Lategame situation:
Dungeon owns Necro.
Haven owns Necro.
Sylvan owns Necro.
Dwarfs RAPE Necro.
Adademy owns Necro.
Only Inferno and Orcs will have problems ( becouse of dark) but they will still beat necro.

Necros alternative skeleton upgrade is overpowered tho, as compensation for nerfed numbers.
