Poll Question:
Favourite faction

I have not seen such topic for MMH 6, so I would like to ask - which faction do you like the most? It does not have to be the "best" faction, it should be the one, you like the most... and in the comments, you can specify why

Responses:
Haven
Inferno
Necropolis
Stronghold
Sanctuary
Dungeon

Necropolis -- I liked it in HOMM V, and still do.  I prefer ranged fighters and magic.  Necropolis has three shooters.  It has decent resurrection powers, and home town can resurrect fallen troops and heroes.

Inferno because i like to cast destructive spells and fire spells are good enough to do lot of damages.

Sanctuary for its amazing creatures and numerous abilities to control enemies' tactical movement.
I enjoy the early common style of each faction. And those awful town screens just made everything worse... Haven, for example. The town (especially the Village Hall) is very beautiful on the adventure map. And its image on the town screen is... as repulsive as possible. Sure "Black Hole" could have created amazing town screens.

Ehh.. You mean old town screens or new 2d ones?? Havens 2d one is awesome I think!! I could stare at it for hours

As for the favourite faction, from the ones present in Heroes 6 its probably Dungeon. Well maybe a tie between Dungeon and Haven. I prefer to play Magic offensively, and like tactical combats, that why Dungeon suits me best with its racial. I also prefer glass canons creatures to tanks. I like Haven lorewise but dont like healing mechanic much overall :-(, so thats why my vote goes to cunning and mysterious Dungeon

Stronghold. I always loved Stronghold, I still do. My preferred tactics always has been WAAAGH!!-tactics, which Stronghold is suited for just fine, maybes even best. But if I want to be strategical, Stronghold is suited for that as well. Also I greatly prefer to play with might and Stronghold is maybes the best faction to do that with.

The new ones, of course. I will never be satisfied by the work of such low quality.

And these ones are my favourite.

When counting only Heroes 6: Sanctuary. Why? Because it's something new in the franchise (even if it's not too original). I like Far East cultures, and the faction takes many fine elements from them (Kirins, architecture, Hindu Nagas as Japanese Samurai etc.). And the devs brought some nice ideas like Shark Warriors or those Water walking mounts (I like their design).

If counting the whole franchise: Warlocks town/Dungeon as it has always brought together the most bad-ass mythological creatures like Minotaurs, Hydras, Manticores and of course Dragons.

I also have a weak spot for Rampant/Sylvan because it was a refuge for many of my all-time favorite Heroes creatures like Unicorns, Treants, Elven Archers, and of course Dragons.

I agree, they could have been pretty OK, if they were fullscreen. Anyway, to me, the best were the full 3D town screens from H5. I spent so much time just staring at them

I like Sanctuary. I like everything about it, even non gameplay thing like their philosophy. And their town, seems like the most tranquil and serene town since the Rampart of H3 and Sylvan of H5 to lesser extent.

And their gameplay fits their lore accurately.

It's been ages since i last played H6, but i love every faction except Inferno (and Dungeon I guess? I don't have the expansion yet).

My answer would be Haven, I think. So versatile, so fun and so much synergy <3

My favourites were Inferno(warlock), Stronghold(barbarian) and Sanctuary(either) for different reasons each. Inferno for sweet nukes and tricky tactics, stronghold for initiative and damage overkill and sanctuary for its synergy and creative tactics. If I really had to pick one, it would probably be sanctuary.

Necropolis, as it has always been, excluding the H4 disaster. Haven is giving it heavy competition in H6 though. Necro is favourite overall but I think strictly gameplay-wise I prefer Haven, by a small margin.

Favourite Faction?

Dungeon, beause it's the most wellmade faction overall, it has good design, interesting and varied heroes, creatures and strategic choices, and a good campaign. There's an air of mystery around them.

I could've voted Sanctuary too for the same reasons, but the campaign is slightly predictable and the two kinds of might heroes are too similar. It's a great faction.

In the middle comes Inferno with its gating, luck, darkness, fires and cool creatures, and Haven which is always nice to play as it fits very well (graphically and strategically) both with might and magic.

Necropolis and Stronghold are too oriented towards ranged attacks, which makes it too easy to sit in the corner, which is boring even if it's effective. Necro's endless healing and Strongholds lack of magical counters are other minuses. But I like the factions' overall styles and stories, and charging as a death knight and finding new ways of doing magic as a shaman are good games.

Haven't gotten shades of darkness yet, but getting it today...But so far of what I've played, my favorite faction would be inferno or necropolis.

I am on the same boat as this guy. Necro and Inferno all the way. In H5 I would also say Stronghold, but I don't like them that much in H6.

I always liked to play different builds and strategies, not really bound to certain style of play but having a lot of options, reacting to what opponent is doing and countering it accordingly to information.

Necro with endless reanimation, they have strength in numbers(even though they aren't as weak in H6 as they are in H5...), cursing enemy army and winning the battle in the long run, the true attrition race.

Inferno because it is very aggressive faction, strong units, and I like how you can have a choice with Inferno, burning everything down with destructive magic or controlling the enemy army with dark magic while your units wreak havoc. Also, I think that Demons look great in H6 and Pit Lord is my favorite unit.

Demons and Undeads were always my choice, in every game. I just like playing with them a lot more than with any other faction.

Ive always been a Necromancer kind of guy. Allthough this necropolis was very nice, I never liked the fate weavers.. I find it very lame, even though they are really good creatures.


But I really fell in love with Sanctuary. They were so balanced and with water/ice magic they were close to impossible to defeat

For me Stronghold. Their new theme and gameplay was most fun for me

Sanctuary and Dungeon are cloase behind.

Notable to say that Haven is not as bad as in older games :-D
