Your favourite faction?

Postby Kalah » Mar 12 2011, 17:35

So, since we now know all the 5 factions in Heroes VI, which one do you like the most? Which one are you looking forward to playing with?

Obviously, we don't know everything yet, so your votes wil be based on what we know so far.
In War: Resolution, In Defeat: Defiance, In Victory: Magnanimity, In Peace: Goodwill.

Voted Inferno.

Brilliant artwork and the Pit Lord is finally top tier.

However, Stronghold looks better than ever, and the new Sanctuary is quite interesting as well.

Voted sanctuary, mainly because it's the closest thing from my 2nd favorite town in H3 (fortress).
Infiltrator out.

Sanctuary, the others are just so clichéd it's not funny.

I don't know... Sanctuary is new, so it'll be interesting of course; but all in all I find the factions rather disappointing.

I think it's premature to have this poll. We haven't really played as the factions.

The poll is 'which are you most excited about', not 'which do you prefer', so how they actually play doesn't come into it.

Well, not really surprise - new faction wins for me, so Sanctury. Next are Necropolis and Inferno.
Haven and Stronghold do not excite me at all. They easy could not be in game and I won't miss them.

I think we need an option named "how would I know until I play the game?" ;)
I'm a hypocrite because I suggested that all life is sacred and should not be wasted without good reason.

Why would you need such an option, when the question is which "which are you the most excited about?". It basically comes down to which of the five towns you think look most interesting.

Of course, you may be disappointed when the game is realeased ;)

For now i really feel like Sanctuary is my favorite. Mostly because it stands out from the "regular" factions like inferno and haven and we all like new things, don't we? =)

Title of the thread is "your favourite faction" ...

The answer to that's the same, however. I don't know which faction I'd like the most until I actually play the game; nor do I know which faction I'm most looking forward to play with because right now to me they're just that: factions. I don't know their strengths and weaknesses, I don't know how powerful each unit will be, I don't even know enough of game mechanics. So yeah until then, I can't make a choice.

So you are unable to make a decision about the artwork of each town, and you have no preferences regarding the races? You do not have any town/race/faction you traditionally like or feel somehow connected to based on previous or other games?

Thats pretty weird :P

This game is not all about gameplay.

Yeow...buch of fans curious 'bout the new faction.
Yup I my self put them as number two in my list. The atmosphere, balance defense and attack, water magic, etc.
But, my first choise goes to Stronghold. They've good lines up, attack skill, and creatures ability sounds interesting, especeially cyclops and Elite tiers.
We'll see...

A bit surprising maybe, but imo the best looking faction so far is Haven. Yes, Haven. I'm really digging the roman/greek influence. After that it's Sanctuary obviously. The others look boring to me... Still no Behemoths, some stupid spider creature for Necropolis and Pit Fiends as top tier unit? No thanks.
You'd think Darkmoor was a ghost town, but instead there's plenty of life among the dead.

Sanctuary, since they're new, and we all know how to play Stronghold, Haven and Necro (and we know to avoid Inferno).
