Why is everyone posting their favourite town in the 'town you least like to play' thread? :|

Anyway, it has to be dungeon. Dark elves? lame. Taking out stacks with deep hydras? lame. Raping 1000000000000 neutral zombies with 10 blood furies? lame.

Agreed. The Dungeon isn't that interesting to play as. Only the Blood Furies and Grim Raiders are any fun to use.
And the chickens. Those damn chickens.

I actually like the inferno faction but for me they are the least fun to play as because gating is so tedious.

Sylvan. The hero and units are a worthless combination. Defense with attacking creatures?? Atleast knowledge are useful with massbuffs....

I haven't played WoF so I can't speak about the Dwarves (Think I would like them though).

I can't stand the Sylvan faction. I had to put the difficulty level to easy in the campaign just so I could get through it fast so I didn't need to play as them for too long. I tried Fury of the Elements, but I just couldn't take it because I can't stand the Sylvan units or Heroes. I don't have a problem with other towns; in fact I like to play as them all occasionally, but I just can't take Sylvan.

I'll have to agree with the people who dislike the dungeon. While I've enjoyed that faction in other Heroes versions, I just haven't been able to develop a liking to them in H5. And so I play them the least. Which means I haven't taken the time to "get to know them". Which means I like them least...

Especially Dungeon!!!!!!! Ruinous Dungeon...

Take it back to the REAL dungeon

Dragons, Minotaurs, Hydras, Griffens, Gargoyles and Centaurs that shoot!

Well I'm not a great fan of the academy, but the town I like to play least is Haven, just not into the human faction at all

gimme the fire loving inferno anyday!

I may have to reconsider. Playing as humans is always quite dull for me in most games...

i must say necropolis. they are weaker that all the other factions and their 7th level unit has little hp. i played with a vampire lord in one scenario and was like 15 level or so and the vampires which u know gain bonus from the level of the hero were as strong as my spectral dragons, plus all the units are kind of slow it takes for example forever for zombie to go all the way across the map, and in homm5 there is no dark knight wtf is that

Oh, I love necropolis. one of my favourite towns.
yes, Their dragons are a bit on the weak side but I love all of their other units.
and zombies are not suppose to cross the battlefield, they suppose to stay back and defend the shooters

What?! Weaker than all the other factions?! :?? I am not sure how you are using them, but they are by far not weaker. They are one of the stronger factions, even with the weak level 7 unit. You must not be using them and their strengths correctly if you think so... :wall:

ok give me a situation with two equaly balanced armies and heroes and tell me how will the necropolis emerge as the victor, if that's not too much trouble

Oh dear, I can already see the predictable answer of: "Puppet master them to death, then frenzy their X unit and use raise dead so to not lose your troops"
but i'll leave it to the experts here for the full answer ;)

If you use Necropolis and you come out in a situation with two equaly balanced armies and heroes of which your Necropolis is one of them,

then like Starbatron said, You must not be using them and their strengths correctly if you think so.

Don't have to be expert to suggest that :-D :D B-)

First, as BoardGuest8088888 said, you should never be in that situation in the first place. The strength of Necropolis, as any one knows, is numbers, massive, massive numbers. Between the growth rate, creeping, and with some luck, creatures structures that can be used with your undead transformer, your army should have the advantage of superior numbers. Second, if you built your hero correctly, you should be able to make use of all the necro's casting strengths, such as the mass curses, puppet master, frenzy, raise dead, as well as the summoning spells, especially conjure Phoenix, and in addition, have his attack and defense buffed (there is some debate about the usefulness of defense with a necro army), and if you were patient enough to acquire luck, you should emerge victorious. This isn't to say you will never lose. Any town can be beat by virtually any town on any given day, but the odds should be in your favor. :D
