HoMM polls (especially HoMM3)

So, I started on reddit a series of polls about HoMM3 (for now, since future ones will include other HoMM games as well), and I decided to share them here as well. I'm gonna include a link to both the reddit posts and the voting section:

* Which is your favorite HoMM3 town? Vote here.

* What is your favorite HoMM3 waifu unit? Vote here.

* Poll: Which HoMM3 creature is your favorite and why? Vote here.

* Poll: Which is your favorite/best HoMM3 hero class and why? Vote here.

* Poll: Which is your favorite H3 husbando and why? Vote here.

1 poll/day, btw. 2/week, 'cus people seem to not be able to visit reddit for 5 minutes daily. A big questionnaire/week.

More than for Stronghold, though. Pretty surprised Stronghold has so few votes, with Craggy and all. I kinda like both Conflux and Stronghold the same, but Tower is my fav.

Edit:I'm working on the next poll right now, btw. It will also have images for all options

I definitely like snow wizards better than desert wizards but that's because I hate the hot and dry aesthetic. Don't like stronghold for the same reason. Conflux I think would have been much more popular if they had been able to release it for the 2nd expansion after Forge like they wanted to. Polish up the heroes a bit and make the lineup more interesting. I just love elementals as a concept and I'm really bummed out that conflux never returned in later games.

I like elementals too. They didn't return as a town because they fulfilled their orders from the Ancients to eradicate the Kreegans.

I too don't really like the desert aesthetics, but on Stronghold it seems pretty ok.

Edit: Sorry, I couldn't include images, for it is too big.

We would've had it in SoD, and somewhat better polished (but I doubt it would have been very different, with other creatures). BUt yeah, it's pretty wonderful, but lacks polishing especially in the original game. In HotA they balanced it and also fixed adventure map sprites (images) for town.

Oh, my new poll was released. Lemme add it to the list.

Edit: Here: Poll: Which HoMM3 creature is your favorite and why?

Wasn't surprised to see Rampart being loved by many, but kinda strange to see Inferno so clearly at the bottom (currently only voted by 2% of all people). Recently I've come a cross with many who claim Inferno being their favorite, and personally loved that town when I was kid.

Same goes for Stronghold... Honestly, I expected Tower (it had 3rd place when I posted the new poll) to be under Stronghold and Castle, but I was quite wrong.

Yeah, Inferno is relatively okay in terms of gameplay and town build, but I don't like demons. The music is top notch, though.

Edit: Lol, what we're talking about, Forge has 1 vote and 0.something%.

Edit 2: Btw, ideas for future polls would be cool. Next one is husbando one (probably the only near from now funny poll), because I promised someone on reddit I was gonna make it later, to respect the women of reddit.

How about these:

Most hated town

Favorite Secondary skill

Favorite Spell/most useless spell

Most disliked feature in Hota

Most wanted relic artifact

Most liked neutral non-dragon creature (everyone would just vote Azure otherwise )

Best hero class (might be a hard one)

Best townscreen

Best town music


Shorties:

Crag Hack or Tazar

Gold or Experience (from chests)

I prefer to say "favorite", because if I use "best" then everyone goes for the actual best thing (which we all know already what that is, like Azures as dragons, etc.). But your ideas are cool.

Best hero class sounds good... (is everyone gonna say Necromancer ?)

I'm also gonna make polls like "favorite creature in all HoMM games" and stuff, but only later on.

Btw, Neela and Tazar are relatively the same, with small differences. Tbh, Neela is insanely though (as is Tazar) on long maps, + Mass Shield.

Edit: Thank you for the suggestions, though. I will probably use all of them.

I think Barbarians and Captains (if there are many Hota users in Reddit) will score highly in that hero class poll. Probably neither of them will get my vote, but I know there are lot of people who simply like to forget the magic-part completely and go full smorc.

In late game, Neela, Mephala and Tazar are basically the same, I personally think the Neela is slightly different in the beginning  than the other two with very different starting stat setup and she even got that spellbook.
Nevertheless, the Crag + Tazar duo has always been very iconic, and many heroes memes are centered around those two characters. IIRC there's even a topic about their "rivalry" in ToH forum section.

Yeah, I know about their rivalry very well It works better between them than with Crag beating up Neela lol.

But thing is, many people say Tower has almost no good hero, when Neela is basically an excellent one, that compensates for lack of hp for magi and genies. She's pretty different in the beginning and usually easier to play with, due to magic.

Anyway, back to the subject. Most people on reddit do play HotA, that's even why I started including HotA content in polls (there were some complaints before about not having Sea Bi- Witches in the poll, sorry, these were his words).

Probably they're gonna choose Barbarian and/or Captain (but Stronghold was so low last time...), but I doubt Necromancer will occupy a place lower than 4 at the end

Oh, also favorite (best, maybe) hero specialty could be included in one poll.

Btw, which is your favorite creature? Mine is Titan.

@FirePaladin

I stalk on Homm reddit channel every now and then and have realised that while Hota is indeed popular among them, there are still a lot of people who really like this game and play it on regular basis, but have only very recently heard about Hota(or any mod whatsoever). I find it kinda strange tbh, but I guess it's just me being inside some kind Homm3 bubble.

(Omg, I don't know!) [opens the heroes.thelazy's List of Creatures section]

Well, this wasn't always the case, but in Hota Magog and Liches are among my favorites, as there's something oddly satisfying to shoot multiple stacks with one hit.

But I think I still go with Dread Knight being the top one. I love to death their double damage animation. (well, not when I'm on the receiving end.)

Enchanters >>>>

Aside from how broken they are they're also IMO the most unique and fun to use units in the game.

This is going to be for just HoMM in general right? Here's some ideas.

Favorite Game
Least Favorite Game
Favorite Character(NWC)
Favorite Character(Ashan)
Favorite Faction(All factions in any game, including Forge, Cove, Sanctuary, and with Dark Elf Dungeon and Nighon Dungeon being separate)
Might or Magic
Favorite Artifact
Favorite Hero(gameplay-wise, not favorite character)
Best Unit Tier System
Favorite Mod

I'll let ya know if I think of any more.

Not to mention Cyra, who makes one of the best spells in the game even better AND starts with diplomacy. If she wasn't a wizard she'd be extremely broken IMO. Solmyr is also good on small maps/in the early game.

Thanks dude for the ideas. They're pretty good.

For now, it's only HoMM3 (to get the people to like my polls first ), but future ones, after I use up most H3 ideas, are mostly gonna feature all HoMM games.

Yeah, can't imagine we all overlook Cyra (even I did). If she casts Mass Haste on Naga Queens, that means a 6 bonus to speed, which is 13 speed for them. Also Iron Golems would get 7 speed bonus (resulting in 12 speed, enough to get to the other side of the arena), which is pretty amazing, especially in PvP (since people might not expect that, and her initial strike could be devastating )

Favorite map size (Hota)
What amount of water you prefer in your games (none, normal, or islands?)

Intrestingly, in multiplayer Tower games many players tend to pick Thane as their starting hero. He is not meant to be main hero, but to provide maxium support with Scholar to your early game heroes. Tower is somewhat a weard town when it comes to the starting hero in MP, as there isn't a hero that would give remarkable early game tempo boost to your army. (Gremlin specialists would be picked in 95% of cases.)

Cyra, Neela and Solmyr are probably the best heroes of Tower roster for the late game.

Or mid-game. But Solmyr is still kinda used on short maps too, for that CL boost.

Yeah, Thane thing is kinda neat, especially when you get a cool hero in the tavern after that.

At least for now, you were right about Necromancers, but very interresting to see that the second most liked magic class is actually Clerics.
