No, tier 1-5 units too squishy.

Sometimes I end up with Nix and Snakes only. I thought Nix were OP, but in one of the recent HotA patches they were nerfed.

Maybe on unrestrained maps/templates. Otherwise an expensive town which makes it hard to get a meaningful army early on.

I never understood why some people think Cove is expensive, what about Tower, Conflux, Dungeon and Castle, they are all more expensive.

Maybe the line-up is not that strong, but some heroes with artillery + cannon make a huge difference.

Why do you think Cove is below average? Also seems like you forgot to place a vote.

Mighty Gordon ability on a shooter, that is also only 3rd upgrade unit in the game.

Bad Native terrain and having fragile low level troops are their initial big disadvantages. Their unupgraded units are also not good and this feature forces cove players to upgrage their low level units instead of building high level creature dwellings. their high level troops are also almost useless in siege.

For example I used to think that Inferno is the worst town in Hota but I have changed my mind. Their unupgraded magogs and hell hounds are great. Picking Fiona as main hero and purchasing gogs are enought at clearing maps in the first week. Thus Inferno will be able to get 4 efreets in the first week which are also great at clearing map. Cove is simply lack of this kind of opinions.

I didn't forget to vote, just I did vote accitentally "above average"

Cove isn't overpowered you say? Buahahahahaha! Watch this, guys:
My hero stats(left) and enemy stats(right):
https://postimg.cc/image/3s730zr4j/
See what's happening, when I am trying to kill some Haspids with my 73 titans with blessing and bloodlust:

https://postimg.cc/image/ymebyqc6r/
8.9k damage, 30 killed.
and now let's see, what will happen, when I am trying to attack crocodiles:

https://postimg.cc/image/et285m6eb/
WTF?! Guys, I mean WTF???!!! 3.3k damage, 36 killed. Let's say that we've got normal growth: 100 haspids and 200 nix. We will have to strike Haspids with titans 3.33 times to kill all of them. And 5,55 times to kill all Nixes I am not a master of balancing on tournament level, but on big maps it's really frustrating. HoTA crew, please, don't you see that Nixes need a big nerf?

Okay, guess I'll post my personal opinion of Cove now.
I would say that Cove is if not the best, then at least top 3 town. And that is mainly because of their creatures, level 1-2 is nothing special (though Seamen has very high growth) but level 3-7 units are all overpowered in their own way, especially Sea Dogs, Nix Warriors and Haspids.
Cove's heroes are also very good and they all somehow avoided terrible skills like Learning, Eagle Eye, First Aid and Mysticism. Jeremy comes with a free cannon, Leena is for making money, Elmore is an excellent sailor, Corkes is for hurting the opposition and Eovacius is for Clone-madness. The heroes also start with more creatures than other towns. Last but not least they have the cannon.
I really wish HotA would nerf the town just a little bit.
Btw I have'nt voted in the poll and I won't, but I hope all of you will.

Average, since you get rushed to death early game without a meaningful chance to defend yourself. The only hope is swamp terrain
