Voted for Strength of the Forest, but it may not be a permanent vote. I'm upset because I wanted the Faerie Dragons in, and the idea of an Emerald Knight isn't good for me. Too many horses : all the heroes, Knights from Haven, maybe Death Knights. I would prefer the Pegasus from Heroes 3 or the Unicorns to be present in this line-up . Anyway, I'm glad that my favourite faction won the competition and will be again in HoMM

Two fliers as Champions seems strange. Or maybe they'll make Dragon a walker unit?

An average speed unit does sound like a walker unless we go back to H2 times

Wow, that's tough.

I have not decided yet. The poll runs for two weeks, so I will wait for now.

All I can say is, they all sound really cool.

You can always change your vote! (while the voting is goin on, ofc)

I don't think all factions must have flyer+walker.

Well yeah, but is it not about strategic choice? Slower but sturdier vs faster but less resistant to dmg... I guess it's only one possible option though.

Hmm...

They all have Hunters for core, Druids for elite, and Green Dragons for champion. Furthermore, they all have a Treant in some respect, be it either the second champ, or an elite if a Phoenix is added from "Earth's Balance".

The other core units seem to be a selection of 2 from 3 different choices. Dryad, Pixie, and "Root snake". From H5, a dryad was an alt-grade of the Sprite, and although I know they can change things, I'd rather not have two "forest spirits", as I really disliked Spring spirit/Snow Maiden in the same tier and look, which I fear would occur. Similarly, the Root Snake seems to be a "weakened" version of the Treant, but faster, which means they can work together to keep your enemies on lock-down. So, for me, I'd have the root snake (it's also a new unit, and beyond Nagas (and maybe Hydras) there aren't many "snake" units...)  and one of the two spirits, so "Sylanna's fury"  is out, for me.

Among elites, you get a choice between (what I believe to be) some variation of melee elf, be it a Blade Dancer or "Emerald Warrior". In addition, each has their own specific elite, unicorn, treant, or "moon doe/sun deer". I really dislike Treant being reduced to a elite (even if that means a Phoenix is in). Also, both the druid AND the treant would have entanglement abilities, even though they are in the same tier. I feel this might produce TOO much entanglement, as you are basically REQUIRED to have 3 entangalment units while in "earth's perfect balance".

And of course, the champs are either Treant or Pheonix, with always having a Dragon. This is actually a hard choice, since you are REQUIRED to have a Green Dragon in all line-ups, that means (according to them) you will have a tanky flying unit. So, the question is, do you want a super land tank, or a weaker flyer. It seems that the dragon is a mid way between the two.

Overall, I myself am choosing "Strength of the forest". I loved Dendroids from H3, I loved Treants in H5, and "Forest" would make them have such cooperative tactics. Also, I would definitely prefer a Unicorn over a Sun/Moon deer. I am mixed between Phoenix and Treant in champ spot, but, H5 and H6 have "lore-ified" that Phoenix is basically a super Prime aspect/"elemental" of life. I can't see it being absorbed into Sylvan, only to get booted out again later on, while it retains it's "almighty" power as befits it an avatar of life. But that's really a nit-picky reason.

Personally, I'd choose "Forest", because personal taste, just barely over "Balance", which seems to better stand alone, but WAY above "Sylanna's Fury", which has one unit I feel should only exist in "week of" form ("Week of the Sun Deer: Not a good week to be a Moon Doe" or whatever it says) and too many core level spirits.

Green dragons could be slow not fast and big damage dealer (specially AoE). Phoenix on the other hand could be very fast and survive longer thanks to self-ressurection (and it's supporting abilities).

I think they make a good choice.

The main reason I find Sylanna's Fury unappealing is having both Pixies and Dryads as cores. They feel too similar.

I edited masterpost to have appropriate link.

I'm a bit torn on the vote. I'm not keen on the Python as a core creature, so that makes me lean towards the "Fury" line-up that has the Pixie and the Dryad. However, while the Deer sounds pretty cool, I'm not sure I like it replacing the Unicorn which just seems like such an essential creature for Sylvan. And Blade Dancer ... do we really need that one back?

I'm definitely not voting for the "Balance" line-up because this one both has the Python and misses the Unicorn and the Phoenix seems redundant anyway with the Magic Bird (lols) in Academy. Maybe if we don't get Phoenix here they'll agree to change that stupid name. XD

So on the bottomline I'm probably leaning towards the "Strength" line-up because it has the Unicorn and the Treant/Dragon combo as champions. That does leave me with the Python, but at least as a new creature, I guess it is the lesser problem of the three line-ups.

Voted Sylanna's Fury because I love the idea of them having such high damage and frail units and lets just face it, as soon as I saw Moon Doe/Sun Deer I fell in love <3

This is what I wrote on the page:

Voted EARTH’S PERFECT BALANCE, why?:

- The strategy is great, 3 units can entangle the enemy and you get 2 great shooters, a unit that attacks and returns and another that negates counter strikes. Awesome.

- The other 2 lineups are focused on specifc synergies between 2 units, one of them optional, which "makes you" focus on that synergy and one of the units loses efficency if you don't pick the champion that sinergizes.

- Emerald knights could always ride unicorns to keep them...


Also, you get a unit that is a champion on the other 2 as Elite, giving you the opportunity to play Trents AND Dragons or Phoenixes.

I seriously hoping that the Emerald Knights are those Lynxriding Elves, of the Artwork that has been roaming around the Internet for a long time.

Voted for The Strength of the Forest.
Because I don't want Phoenix in Sylvan. I don't want Dryad and Pixie together and I want Unicorn. Although I would be happier if we had Moon Doe instead of Emerald Knight.

Btw, the Balance line-up seems to lead. I don't think getting rid of a much-loved unit like Unicorns will be good for the game. People seem to get attracted to the word "Balance" there and to the Phoenix.

Phoenix will be in the game as neutral if not in this line-up. But I doubt that Unicorns will show up in the game if they don't get into the Sylvan line-up.

To me the unicorn lineup seems more interesting to me gameplay wise. So I will vote that one.
