Poll Question:
Heroes 7 - Factions

Poll: What faction would you prefer to NOT see in Heroes 7?


So, there are 9 possible factions for Heroes 7. I doubt the vanilla game will release with more then 5. Some factions could be added with expansions, others - fully omitted like in Heroes 6.

So, what do you think the factions will be in vanilla game and in expansions?




Responses:
Haven
Necropolis
Stronghold
Sanctuary
Inferno
Sylvan
Dungeon
Academy
Free Cities

Definitely don't want Inferno, let's for once have a storyline that doesn't involve demons in any way shall we?

Agreed, no Inferno. Academy and Sylvan returning is essential. And I'm not giving up on a Swamp Sanctuary faction.

You forgot to add Fortress to the list. I'd like to see all factions from Tribes of the East. I'd also like to see Sanctuary, but in swamp variant (something like Heroes 3 fortress). So, I voted for Free Cities.

Haven is the perfect introductory faction so I think having it in every Heroes game is essential. Also I'm a big fan of the undead in any game, so if there won't be a Necro faction in H7 then I won't even bother playing it. Sylvan and Academy prefered over the rest, since they weren't in H6 which left the community with a bitter taste in its mouth. I don't care for the other factions so much, but many of you do, so I'm being thoughtful when making this top:

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

I didn't see Fortress in your top, but there are "Free Cities" which I honestly have no clue what they are. Can someone explain?

What about having Inferno with a storyline not involving them ?

I'd rather not see the Free Cities ... OR have them but no Haven instead.

I'm more sick of the storyline evolving around the Haven "superheroes" than about the bad ebil Inferno invading everything once again

Oops, I knew I forgot someone sorry dwarves! Not that I want them in Heroes 7, but I promise it is not a reason for this omission!

Cannot change the poll anymore, so just reply in the thread if Fortress is in your blacklist

Free Cities is this human faction under the dragon god of Air Ylath. To b honest I would prefer them instead of Haven to add some variety.

I  would like to see:

Base game

1. Haven/Free cities
2. Necropolis
3. Academy
4. Dungeon
5. Sylvan

Expansions:

1. Inferno
2. Stonghold or Fortress

Don't want to see Sanctuary.

Free Cities are humans who refused to follow Elrath and still follow Sylath.

Haven first, but i'm not a fan of the babarians and the dwarves too....
But i suppose if the factions are well done in a future heroes 7 i think they were pretty cool to play with an original gameplay....

It has been stated several times before by Ubi officials that there will not be such a thing as a Free-Cities faction.
For several reasons: 1. They supposedly do not have enough population or territory to be a player of matter in Ashan-politics.
2. They are too fractured. The Cities spend as much time warring on eachother as they spend making war on the greater factions.
3. They are too attached to their independance, so much so that they supposedly rather fall than band together for survival.

But as far as the factions I want to see in a possible Heroes 7 are as follows:

Vanilla: The original 6.
Haven; Sylvan; Academy; Stronghold; Dungeon; Necropolis.

The other factions Sanctuary, Fortress and Inferno should be introduced in one or more expansions. With precedence for Fortress and Sactuary over Inferno.

1: What I want to see.
Dungeon, Sylvan, Fortress, Sanctuary, Stronghold
(Some of these factions have something like a unique feel to them)


2: What I do not want to see.
Haven, Inferno, Necropolis (all overused)

Some other things to say about factions:

1. Haven.

See, I like the idea of medieval knights in shining armour with the affinity to light. But can we have this faction a bit more... Subtle? Do we really need to emphathise the "light" point so much so we need a light horses and light elementals? We can do better then that. Add some flavour to it, some..insecurity and little bit of conflict(like dark knights in Heroes 5). Maybe a mix of Haven and some Free Cities mercs?

2. Necro. I like it as it is in Heroes 6. Really like the Fate Weavers, maybe have some optional Bone Dragons?

3. Academy. Please more like in DoC's then Heroes 5. Djinns with some drawbacks, constructs, mages that are stylish and martial as well. Blademages? I got so much to say about them but it would take the whole day.

4. Dungeon. Heroes 6 ones are almost perfect. Justlsa purple and no faceless please. These better suit as some bosses, or even heroes but not just some troops. This demistifies them greatly.

5. Inferno. Well we can do without it I think. Maybe some demon creatures for hire, as neutrals or as a spell effect, but the whole faction... I don't know. There are better candidates.

6. Stronghold. In my opinion, they suffer from the same disease as Fortress from H5. Too many orcs, not enough variety. Where are paokai, beasts, etc.
7. Fortress - not so many dwarves please. Valkyries, something else? Machines?

8. Sylvan. H5 is almost perfect. Don't know what to add.

9. Sanctuary - not sure where we need it if we get Sylvan. The flavour/ is bit too strong for me, and too many spirits.

The problems you mention, Hermes (so much light in Haven faction, purple in Dungeon, necropolis being a fest of green lights, etc...) is a problem 100% of Ubisoft. I wish they'd stop making every damn faction so color focused

In this regard, NWC towns were miles ahead of Ubisoft.

Would like to see Academy, Dungeon, Fortress, Sanctuary, Stronghold and Sylvan in vanilla. Nevertheless, it's obvious that Haven and Necropolis will appear in the first release. Just some kind of tradition.

I agree. You don't have to throw a rave party in people's faces to make a faction look distinct.
