You're kidding, there were more than a few good ways of playing orcs in H5! They had their share of smart combos too.

About the build- I think there is only one main build in H5:
1/ Racial of course
2/ Attack
3/War Machines- Ballista, Triple Ballista, First Aid (most effective)
4/Leadership
5/Luck
6/ Depend on the map Logistic if it's a XXL map or enlightment (because this skill is broken) may be defense but the sixth skill as no importance in fact.

Might over magic no more, shatter is always a bad idea if the opponent don't chosse it it's a wasted skill.
or perhaps i killed my opponent before he has mage guild 4 lol
seriously i prefer focusing on my strengh instead of make a build to counter my opponent who is imprevisible.

I'd really like to see Academy/Tower back in the game, in H3 style ! Even though I'm not sure I'd ever be able to play this game thanks to all the issues, I've experienced black screens, white water, heroes half there in graphics, not counting considerable amount of bugs =) Maybe in about 5 years, when everything would have been corrected by the fans ? =)
I don't think Sylvan will be back, Sanctuary seems to be the new nature faction here ? Missing unicorns though =)

Alright, now I know I'm in the minority here, but I would like to see Dwarves as a faction again.

It's hard to choose, because the three options were always my favourites in H3 and H5.

Correct me if I'm wrong though, but it seems to me that the Dwarves can have a clean slate in H6, in terms of lore. I'd like to see a purely neutral faction having to witness and deal with the wars between all other factions.

Plus, everyone wants to see the bear cavalry again!

As much as I would like to see again the elves and maybe a hero which I played a lot in H3, Ivor, I must admit that H6 has already a nature town, Sanctuary, and their dark brothers reached the finish line first; let's wait for a nice air-based magic Academy town and a genie called Solmyr, of course if all-mighty Ubisoft hears our thoughts...i guess this would bring back some lost Heroes players

I think the game is dead now, surely because of UBI.
If speaking about faction, yes, i would like to see Academy, but....NOT in a broken unfinished game!

Recommandation: ubi should donate/sell franchise, they already showed us enough!

They killed the hype with SoD release date shift.

In my case, I will play SoD, but at the moment I completely lost interest in the game...

Again.

And, although I would like to see some more factions, I'm beginning to doubt there is even a slightest chance for a second expansion. The development process for Heroes VI add-ons/patches takes to long imo. Then again Kings Bounty remake is active with their expansions even today, years after the vanilla games release...

I think restarting with H7 and having atleast 7 races from the start, and having more UNIQUE units then is currently out there.

Personally I want to see more interesting units like Lamasu, Lacerator, Light Elemental.

Not things like Maniac, Darkness Elemental, or other generic units as much. Or atleast over UNIQUE not "you want attack or defense?"
or "Speed or attack/defense?"

Instead they should be entirely different creatures such as things like Harpy/Centaur option, Behemoth/Cyclops, Goblin/Bandit.

@Slayer

This is an interesting choice of words you have. Whitout any bad intentions, how do you decide which unit is generic and which is not. From your example, why is Lacerator Unique and Maniac generic?

Is it connected to their look, or to the idea behind them. Does Darkness elemetal look generic, or is the idea such a creature itself generic.

Look at a Griffin. Is it a generic and overused mythical creature, or is it unique in the way it is approched.

Also What about units that from the idea look similar (Sphinx, Lamasu, Manricora)...

Generic in appearance. It looks like something out of Diablo or Silent Hill yet manages to have even less "personality".
Generic name.
Lacerator is not much better in both of those categories though.

I like them...although I'm not a good example as I love tge game in general. Creatures like Maniacs have these abilities lowering enemy's attack, etc. Now these are not very exciting to watch nor easy to understand for new players, but they do add the depth heroes 3 for example lacked with its truly generic no abilities creatures..

Creatures don't need to have tons of abilities to be unique IMO. You can play with different stats and have some uniqueness.

Don't get me wrong, though. I'm not saying that all H3 creatures were unique or not, but even with few abilities they were damn fun.

Since the story seems to become increasingly weird and space oriented (the void) and there's (too) much focus on the Necromancers I say there's a need for more Magic and Wizards to make things right.

However:

What I really wished for was that Sylvan and not only Dungeon had been included in this expansion.

The new Dwarf faction concept here is also very interesting.

Sylvan, dungeon, fortress and haven have many common political plotlines that would have been interesting to explore, instead of going on magical mysteries tour.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't this be evidence that all three are planned for a future release?
I haven't seen this link before.

Those artwork are made to establish the nine factions that exist in Ashan. They aren't directly linked to HVI as you seems to think.

It would be cool if it was the evidence but I think this is just world building, i.e. the story basis they will usr for other games (1 person, internet based, clash of heroes, cards, H7 etc).

I hope they add more of the factions in H6 though.
