What faction do you like to play most?

I have clear priority of how enjoyable and effective different castle types are for solos play against the AI. I am wondering if others feel similarly or not.
Ranking 10 high, here are my preferences:

10 Dungeon
8 Castle
8 Conflux
7 Tower
5.5 Necropolis
4 Stronghold
4 Inferno
3 Rampart
1 Fortress

If I play a map with a bunch of zones, connections, etc.(ie. not Jebus):
Rampart for easy week 1, easy terrain
Flux, see above, plus easy magic
Necro, for easy week 2

With dungeon I always feel bad when I start with shakti, inferior main to Gunnar, but when I start with Gunnar start army tends to suck

Tower and fortress start zones suck, too much terrain penalty for anything not in their town.

Castle needs wood and if no archers pre-built start army tends to suck.

Stronghold is nice, but not as easy a start as flux or rampart.

Inferno sucks imo, weak start army, usually weak week 2, if you get demon farming going you can get decent army, but I don't like that much micro

I enjoy Fortress the most because I like their beasts, sure it's a weaker town generally but still.

Then we have Cove (from HOTA) which is kinda overpowered and Rampart (I'm charmed by the looks of gold dragons and the town looks charming).

Dungeon is my least favorite, dark town (duh), boring music (everyone their own taste) Bunch of creatures that wouldn't be able to work together in my opinion

The other towns are in between, although with problem castle and stronghold topping

1. Rampart. Easy start, good heroes, beautiful landscape
2. Inferno. Demon farming is too much fun. Very ugly landscape unfortunately.
3. Dungeon. Dragons, mana vortex and best music (contrary to what someone said earlier )
4. Fortress. Hydras and other creatures are very cool. Sucky terrain though. Good music.
5. Tower. Lots of ranged units and combos with genies. A nice challenge to play with crappy wizard main hero.
6. Castle. Super boring but very strong. Terrain is beautiful.
7. Stronghold. Good creatures but I find the dry terrain depressing + lots of creatures are uninspiring + behemoths are somewhat slow and have a chance of dying (as opposed to e.g. archangels)
8. Necro. Too easy, very ugly terrain, super slow armies.
9. Conflux. Too strange. Vanilla towns ftw. Never play these guys except when trying stuff like "only sprites the entire game".

I like most to start with two different factions.

If I have to rank the factions, I have to say first, that I like them all.

There is only one faction, I like more than the others and that is

Dungeon: I have highest fun when there is a mighty hero attacking me in the castle: Harpye Hags and two strong shooters in combination with tactics are very powerful. Most I like playing Arlach here.

Fortress is my favorite one. I also like Dungeon and Inferno. I find the fractions to be rather boring.
