The one you would overall consider the strongest, when playing this hero as your main hero.

I guess you are kidding, both are pretty terrible right? Okay Ignatius' skills are alright, but imp specialty is bad. Calh with Scouting and Archery and a mediocre shooter is not great either.

It's cause of the starting armies... I always thought Pyre and Marius would be the primary choices for MP but I guess.
My favorite inferno hero is Octavia but I almost never start with that town so she is my favorite as a supporting hero for other towns.

While playing in multi obviously there is no other choice, Heretics and Demoniacs are terrible heroes anyway, but Calh or Ignatius armies are super strong powerstacks in week1. You choose them, if they get decent skill then they are mains, if crap - swap them for something better but you keep the army anyway.

This video shows how Calh gogs can be used to effectively skyrocket your power by clearing creature banks that wouldnt be possible to clear without powerstack of magogs.

Okay you can take their starting armies, I get that, but would you really want them as main heroes? At least Calh has terrible skills and both pretty bad specialties.
But yes Inferno lack those superheroes, like Gunnar, Crag Hack, Tazar and Galthran.

In single player where games tend to be longer heroes specialty is very important, but in multiplayer you are more focused on getting tempo and reasonable speed in clearing the map.

For example - you get Crag Hack and lets say Calh. Crag Hack gets Expert Offense and Air, Calh gets Logistics and Earth. Now you are most likely to use Calh as main, because his Earth allows him to do so much faster map clearing. Of course if Crag gets Earth then he is the top choice.

So - in single it is okay to choose for example Marius as a main, but in multi it is not a viable choice because you get a much slower start. In single I like to play with Marius, because its so much fun to build that demon powerstack.

You seem to be very focussed on short multiplayer maps, I guess that's fair.
Thanks for the explanation.

Its not "short multiplayer maps" because all MP is played on random maps so that both player can have a fair game. Games are short even on XL maps because players maximize their movement effectiveness so that everything is over by week 3 or 4.
I"m not focused on it as I don't play anymore, but multi is where you can observe skillful heroes gameplay therefore I tend to watch pro play from time to time. It's quite engaging to be honest ^^

Single: driving your car back and forth through your garden.
Multi: same but on public road, in the middle of other cars.

You keep asking which car is better, faster and safer but forget to specify how large is your garden. Useless polls in my opinion.

I just ask which heroes people like best, I don't post exact specific conditions, just choose the hero you like best.
And I fail to understand why competitive multiplayer is seen as the golden standard, I'm betting a lot more people are playing singleplayer or allied multiplayer. There are many ways to play the game.

Did you know that Eagle Eye move to Scholar? Teamwork! The strongest hero attack to town without Eagle Eye or Scholar. But if over 30 level, etc, for example so all the skill is insignificant, and then must be 10 skills (in WoG). So you can use a Archmage (H4) in Eagle Eye and Scholar without problem by 10 skills. Inferno has a good skill. Ignatius is also good hero, when speed can use a demon farming, etc/or force field with gog/magog. You walk around without fear. You can't stand at town. He (Ignatius) has a tactics, for escape from battle. So you take a artifact, etc Inferno and Tower have the great secret. I don't know the best So you create another poll, and I look.

And then EDIT: Inferno needs water skill, why a Heretic. Wrong be unlikely to learning a water skill. I always got a water. So "bad skills", when Inferno wants Earth and Fire. It does a total three skills, and you think in five skills. Yes Inferno is a good skill, when the great secret, but a skill tuner, if you want to powerful skill. It's hard. In WoG you get a easy to play impossible and mythic map. The teleport, summon boat, bless, and forgetfulness are very important to Inferno. You must remember also Inferno's primary skills to replace the skill. But hard tuner in WoG

Heretics:
Ayden because of his Unlimited Mana
Zydar because he boots all damage spells (Efreets + Armageddon for hit run strategies).

I believe Calh is the most popular pick in competitive games.

It's for the starting army/early fights, mostly. Yeah, he's not the best long-term main, but you don't have to stick with him or anything - you can switch to a good hero if you find one. None of the Inferno heroes are spectacular mains so you will often see people switching to a hero from a different town eventually.

Fiona wasn't there, so I did 'other'.

Kiting neutrals around with cerberus works fairly well, especially if you get your hands on a bless spell and it gives her a fast early-game unit to cast slow on opponents.

She certainly isn't the best, but she looks like a lovely cruel mistress....lucky dogs

Depends on settings.

In general: Ignatius (other). Looks cool. Gives you something to work with. Special sucks in the end, so must win fast.
