Funny that the weakest town (inferno) currently leads the polls for most enjoyable to play... why is this?

I don't find Inferno having any compelling mechanics. Demon farming is quite frustrating, even if interesting. But the rest is just dull.
Characters have bad specialties, spell power (focus skill) becomes useless in late game... fire magic (theme) is the weakest element.

Castle Gate is very powerful IF one gets it to work (and gets around even town portal being banned), but how often do you have multiple Infernos in the very late game?
They do have a very nice aesthetic, I will give them that.

I can guess why is Inferno leading in the poll.

1) It is one of the fastest town. It is often more enjoyable to play with faster creatures.

2) Inferno is seen generally weak and underdog they might feel more pleasured winning with Inferno.

3) Demoniac is good hero class.

4) It is a lot harder to be master with Inferno it means high replayability and variety.

5) Demon farming is enjoyable even more than necromancy because it requires planning and skill unlike necromancy.

Also I don't think Inferno is worse than Conflux or Dungeon in HotA.

I guess Inferno gets a lot of "Sympathy Points", as a lot of people consider it the weakest faction. Perhaps it is, but at least it's better in HotA. Buffing Fire spells like Fire Wall, Land Mine, Fireball, Inferno and Slayer would also help.

What do you mean by this? Faster to walk or faster to acquire?

Demons are pretty slow... imps are relatively slow... and there is the worst archery after Fortress (only Magogs lvl2, but at least they have area damage unlike Lizardmen)

Lvl6 and 7 are fast creatures, but all towns except Stronghold have fast lvl6 creatures (theirs is archer, tho), and all except Tower and Fortress have fast level 7.

I do think that the "no retaliation" from Devils is an interesting ability to face other level 7 creatures, in this way ArchDevils are underestimated; but dragon's breath is still better in this regard. It's not that Arch Devils are weak, but that all other max levels except Bone Dragons have better specials.

The teleport does look rad and they only occupy one tile, I will give them that.

In terms of average speed of all tier units, Inferno is second fastest town after Conflux.

I still think Inferno might needs some buffs but I never considered it as the worst town in HotA. Inferno has plenty of advantages that other towns lack.

Inferno has the most potential to drain maps faster than any other towns because of easy access to lvl6 and relatively easy acess to lvl7 dwellings both oh them are fast flyer thus Inferno will be able to split their expeditionary forces into 3 category (Devils-Efreets-Others) and starts draining maps with minimal casualties due to demon farming and devil's abilities. Another factor is they don't need to immiadetaly upgrade their creatures like other towns in initial stages with exception Pit Lord.

I like Stronghold. It's a fast, straightforward town to play (you rush monkeys, recruit 1 and go butcher everyone )

As for Castle... you know my opinion

Fortress is tough town to play, but they are very durable. Plus swamp as home terrain help them. They lack damage output, but they are not very slow. Even vs Tower, Dragon Fly gives initiative in battles. Making Tazar as main is best option. I consider witch class as one of best mages in game(better then wizards), as the have balance in sp and knowledge, plus Andra is best witch to get(her inteligence is very good in longer games).

I don't think Andra can help Fortress pull wins in late games because in late game Fortress needs heroes that can buff their native creatures' stats, and Andra can't do it. Fortress' creatures have the worst stats (att / def / damage) of all towns, and unless you get lucky with finding the best artifacts before your opponent so you can get at least 5-10 more ATT / DEF before the battle Fortress' creatures will have no advantage in battles. Their creatures are slow, they have low damage, and their stats in general are the worst. That's why a hero like Tazar is so good for this town... or even Alkin, which buffs Fortress' best creature.

Even though they are literally the same, I would say that Ayden is better for Inferno than Andra is for Fortress simply because Inferno's creatures have better stats, so they can afford to play a mage hero, especially since Inferno has access to magic, too

I know you didn't ask me monere, but here I give my opinion: No, Stronghold is not better than Fortress.



Among many reasons: Because they have a hero like Drakon. Stronghold does not.

that's what I feel, too, I just don't say it because I get hate from the biased stronghold fanboys. With the exception of the behemoths (which are truly outstanding, sturdy nukers and which I absolutely love) no other Stronghold creature can match Fortress' creatures in my opinion.
