Poll Question:
The ideal HoMM Rampart level 7 line-up with alternate creatures

So basically, I got hit by this question: which do you think should be the ideal Rampart level 7 line-up, if someone was to do it with alternate units? Anyway, you can vote bellow.

Also, yeah, trees, even tho I don't see them as level 7, maybe someone actually thinks they are a good idea (I know someone who really thought they were).

Responses:
Green/Gold Dragon and Phoenix
Green/Gold Dragon and Faerie Dragon
Phoenix and Faerie Dragon
Green/Gold Dragon and Trees
Trees and Phoenix
Tress and Faerie Dragon

Having asked in real-life and on Discord, there seem to be more people for the Phoenix/Faerie Dragon one, at least for now. Also, note that by Rampart I mean Sorceress in H1 and H2, Preserve in H4 and Sylvan in later games.

Green and Gold Dragons were mostly extinct after H3, btw, according to Jennifer Bullard. But this shouldn't influence your vote anyway.

voted dragons / phoenix (option #1) because...

1) rampart has always had gold dragons, so why change the town instead of improving it (ie add alternate creatures)? Besides, I do like the gold dragons, so I wouldn't want them removed from my 2nd favorite all-time HoMM town

2) added phoenix because - besides trees which are too slow and can't make for a good level 7 creature - they are the least "magical" creature of the ones in your poll, and fits into Rampart's theme (lumberjacks) the best.

Note: I don't know whether or not Rampart is a town of lumberjacks but it's how I've considered them (because of the green, wood-ish landscape of their town) since when I first played HoMM 3 in 1999, so I stuck with the "lumberjack" label. If this label offends someone well, tough luck but I'm not changing it

It had Phoenix in H2, same in H4. Also, trees were in H7, and the part with trees in the poll was 90% joke.

I also updated the post above yours with some more info.

yeah, I saw the update. Also, I didn't know that rampart exists in previous versions of HoMM, but that's because I never played HoMM 1 and 2.

Voted for Phoenix and Faerie Dragon. Gold Dragons were cool in H3 but I think the Faerie Dragon fits more with the town's theme.

And the Trees should be called Dendroids or Treants. Though I personally prefer Ents

???

You do know that Rapart is a town of lumberjacks, while Faerie Dragons are a magical creature, thus not having anything in common with wood cutters, right?

Well, between H3 and more towards H4, Rampart's armies had Phoenixes and Faerie Dragons, for reasons. Plus, they aren't really a lumberjack faction, with all those naturist druids and such.

Here's the fragment: "Things are stabilizing in AvLee.  After the Conflux town left, not all of it's citizens left with it.  The Sprites and the Phoenix stayed behind, not wanting to return to the elemental planes.  They have found a home in AvLee and we are all grateful.  I must say the most puzzling addition has been the Faerie Dragon.  The purple pain in the rear has been tamed by the druids and is now working very nicely with them.  I am astonished, but happily so."

I was used to having only spammers here. Nice to see things are more diverse.

yeah, diversity is good

Also, see? Even galaad agrees with me? When an authority takes your side you know you are right xD

Also, I think Green Dragons belong with the Warlocks for the most awesome upgrade path: Green - Red - Black Dragon.

Such an idea could solve my problem with having no alternate creature for level 7 of H7 Dungeon.

Edit: Wait a second someone actually agrees with Erwin that tress should be level 7.

@monere

He just expressed his opinion.

Edit 2: Cool, but to be frankly honest, I think I'd have trees as level 6 alternative or something.

Sprites and Phoenixes were common in Elves nation. These 2 would be great to as alternatives of Centaurs(Sprites) and Dragons(Phoenixes)

Other alternative would be Elder Druid/Master Druid as alternative level 5 units. Dendriods are strong but slow, while Druids could be 2nd shooter

I liked the Druids in H1-H2 alright. Maybe if I were to bring them back, I'd put them somewhere at level 4, like where the Pegasi are in H3.

I think Treants/Dendroids shouldn't be level 7, maybe level 6 at most, switch places with Unicorns.

I like this poll and discussion. I think it would be nice to discuss more questions about other towns and creature levels too. Good thread idea, FirePaladin!

That's my aim. I might extend these to reddit as well, if the guys there aren't offended by these kind of discussions.
