This bias is disgusting! All towns are equally fun to play! End town elitism!

In all honesty though, I know you are limited by the number of options, so I'm not gonna vote cause I like all towns.

I voted (Conflux) because I'm a poll junkie. When I see a poll I gotta take it, even if sometimes I have no clue what I'm voting on

But I do agree with the odd ball. All towns are enjoyable to some degree, except for Castle. That castle should not exist just because I don't like the overpowered Archanagels, and because I said it, so don't argue with my hate towards the Castle castle.

Also, I should have probably picked Inferno because they are fast, underrated and somehow interesting, but I voted Conflux because I am too dizzy to process things correctly

Last but not least, had Fortress' creatures had 1 more speed each (just 1, not more) I would have voted for Fortress because this is the most versatile town in H3 in my opinion, and when you ask which town is the most enjoyable to play I immediately associate the "most enjoyable" with "most versatile". And Fortress IMO is the most versatile of them all due to the diverse range of cool abilities (poison, petrify, death stare, AOE attack, weakness). Anyway, I dare make a prediction that by the end of this poll (whenever that end is) Castle, Tower and Cove will share the first 2 spots (I just can't predict the order in which they will rank, but I think these 3 will win the spot as the most enjoyable towns, even if I don't like them too much personally)

I honestly can't vote in this poll, because I like all towns.
But I agree Castle is bit plain and boring. I sometimes also enjoy Rampart and Dungeon a bit less, because it can take a long time to get dragons and those dragons can't be resurrected. Conflux has too similar heroes and not very good specialties, elementals take DOUBLE damage from certain elements and 5/7 units can't be resurrected, units are also really expensive. (in HotA) The good things in Conflux is speed of Phoenix, Magic University and Armageddon potential.
I like some of the underrated towns like Inferno, Fortress and Stronghold a lot though.

I put "see result" and now I can't vote :V

I do think all H3 towns are enjoyable...

...except castle...
With five humans, a griffin and one humanoid creature (Angel, though they are actually robots/artificial lifeforms)

But I get that in this game it has to exist.
And monks are cool, I will give you that.

Fortress has the most interesting creatures (with the patch): Serpent Flies, Gorgons, Basilisk, Hydra etc. (Wyverns should use poison every time), too bad it doesn't have interesting specials and the underpowere Mage Guild.

Wow I was honestly expecting everyone to have a favourite and I was gonna be in the minority.

I'm glad to see that several people also find all the towns enjoyable.

In H3, at least for me, it is difficult to pin point THE favorite.

I'll call it a tie between Necropolis, Castle, Fortress and Dungeon.

Castle and Dungeon due to their easy early game. I am a friend of early level shooters. (Especially those who don't hurt allies..)

Necropolis due to the scaling. Yes, they lack shooters. But what they lack, they compensate with Necromancy and mid- and high tier units.

Fortress, because I am biased due to a thing called childhood.

It's gotta be Inferno mostly because I love playing with Arch Devils. Since I almost always play XL custom maps they are the most useful unit you can wish for.

they're cool, too. One of my favorite creatures in the entire HoMM series. Oftentimes I pick Inferno just for them and the sultans. I absolutely love these 2 creatures, more from a visual design pov than a gameplay-related one

Devils and Sultans are great. You can easy split army to 3 heroes. Main Hero with Devils, Second Hero with Sultans to deal with enemy scout heroes, 3rd one if utilize horned demon farming.

Town is not cheap, but it's useful for many tactics. Archdevils, they are great against slow walkers(wait, jump and attack, return)

Efreets(fire shield) + armageddon immunity + ability to resurecction(unlike black or gold dragons, unless you have black orb)

Demons are cheap, but if 3rd hero have diplomancy + lots of pit lords, you can farm a lot from joiners.

In terms of pure joy, it's Necropolis for me.

@Drakon-Deus... you're losing me as a friend, man (even if it's only a virtual friend). Why 9ayopolis of all those cool towns (tower, fortress, inferno, even dungeon)? WHY???

@zmudziak22.... speaking of demon farming I'd be curious to see a fight between necro and inferno where both opponents get their farming right. I have never checked this but I think Inferno would win, which makes it a great counter to 9ayopolis in medium to late games

Lol, sorry but it's my opinion.

Let's see... producing skeletons after every fight, having Vampire Lords who can regenerate, Animate Dead that is permanent anyway unlike Resurrection, Dread Knights, skeleton transformer and cover of darkness too... all this and not counting the possibility of assembling Cloak of the Undead King.

That's why.

none of the things you mentioned here takes skill to pull victories. I thought you were a real pro at this game and I was looking up to you as a God of the game, but now... my reality is shattered

Me, a pro? I am flattered but I only play for fun and relaxation and not for the "challenge" or what they call it. So I never even thought of myself like that.

@DD

Maybe I understand why your favourite map:



Those mythical artifacts like Cloak of the Undead King. Opponents start to fear you

Remember 1000 Liches vs 100 Titans in math. If you can win in other team against Necropolis, so your map and Cloak of the Undead King. And You live in the map as Hexis.

Bloodsuck also loves Monster Island.

That is true and good. Also that the map has the heroes Traian, Burebista, Decebal, Deceneu, Dracula, etc. all heroes of my people.

@monere

Oh, no problem. And I agree about the brain. I rely on my passion for my strength.

Good, monere, good.

I think we are going too much off-topic for this section of HC though.
