"The Fourth Eclipse gave him the opportunity,"
"killed the Demon general during the Second Eclipse,"

Sooo the second or fourth eclipse ??! You guys should decide :P

Indeed. The blade controls (binds) demons and you can guess, why they flew when demonic general was killed.
And I think that "unidenfied" Wizard was Ahz Rafir - otherwise why to cover his name? ;)

Anything less facepalm-inducing. Like "For the glory of our homelands!" as EnergyW suggested. Or "For the future of our kin!", "For our world's safety!", "For Marzhin's terrible puns!, "For le Bretonia". You get it.

I'm surprised Haven has scored the lowest so far. Not one of my favorites but I always thought they were one of the more preferred factions.

Well Haven has been there since H1 so people kinda got bored with it.

25
RobvD84 The Mad
July 17, 2015 21:57:22

I have a feeling most ppl voted with only how the factions are in H6 and H7 instead of looking at them from the whole franchise. My top 4 was 1# Academy, 2# Necro, #3, Inferno and 4# Haven. For me Academy was the best in H5. Necro the best in H3 (altho the death spells in H4 was the best), Inferno the best in H5 and Haven the best in H4.

17
v.o.r.t.3.x. The Destroyer
July 17, 2015 22:21:37

I agree. I do think most will base it on the last two games but for me I've played H1 through H6 so I based it on a combination of them all including H7. Really I'm just curious where each faction will lie in the end. After 50 results I'll give the screenshot. It's at 36 right now and the survey doesn't have a time limit.

@Lucifael7: I think it's partially that as well. I can say that I rarely choose Haven myself but I have friends that will only play Haven and just love them. I just find all of the other factions more interesting.

@Rob I voted based on HV - HVII. HV is still my favourite game from the series, and Dungeon my favourite faction for that game, followed by Sylvan, Academy, Necropolis and Haven, in that order.

Playing only the preferred faction is a bit too much:)..I liked the wood elves factions since h3 (with a bit of disappointment for h4 one) but i always play all the factions enjoying them almost equally. Even now i go and play with H3 Fortress might hero + water magic. Bless+Prayer(need a diff castle for it :D since they have mag 3 guild only) on Lizardmen Warriors kick every1's asses!

Now I have just thought, that vote for lich and vampire redesign, many were not pleased that the undead priest choice won by just 1% ahead of the anicent mummy. After seeing the art with the lich for the Necropolis, people were pleased with the initial look.

Now, this should be proof enough the devs can do well if they try enough.

Z tymi 1 dodatkiem zgodzę się w 100%, natomiast co do 2 to powrót Inferna jak najbardziej popieram, tylko wątpię czy w Ashanie jest miejsce na zamek z żywiołami.

Do you think we really need elemental faction? 4 more factions is good but the fourth one could be more interesting, for example Free Cities or Bastion...

Would prefer Cove (pirates) over conflux (elemental)!

21
Pawek1308 The Ancient

Why not add some new, Void-related faction instead of Conflux? Besides, we should now think primarly about fixing the vanilla and not expanding it. ;)

matrix123mko The Councilor
July 19, 2015 10:02:13

Forteca - krasnoludy są niezbędne w fantasy (jak elfy)
Świątynia - tak
Inferno - to oni są złem Ashanu, powinni zaatakować Ivana i jego osłabione Imperium
Wrota żywiołów - problem w tym, że mamy układ 3 tierów i musielibyśmy wybrać silniejsze żywioły i słabsze

To be honest i'm also prefer pirate fraction and my favourite fraction would be lizardmans swamp fraction, but i thinh that there is no chances that devs would add some of swamp/pirate/elemental fraction. If they could the most chances will have elementals. Thats the readon of my post :D
