If you choose the last answer please send a private Message answering that Question (maybe Ubisoft will insert new Races)

I answered Heaven...I always loved to play for humans, monks, angels and all that stuff...

12-16-2007, 11:04 AM
Heaven... i' ve benn playing them since HOMM 3

12-16-2007, 11:22 AM
Necromancers....nothing better than the might of the death

12-16-2007, 01:12 PM
dark elves? u mean dungeon?
dungeon is one of my favourite races so i guess i'll go with them.

12-16-2007, 02:50 PM
Hmm what is Fortress and Rampart? Those are my favourite raceshttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I blieve Orcs are Rampart and fortress was taken out after Homm3

My mistake i got rampart and stronghold mixed up. So i think rampart is now Elf in Homm5 and Fotress taken out, by taken out i mean the race does not exist anymore, the name Fortress is now used by dawrven i believe.

12-17-2007, 11:29 AM
There isnt any rampart. Theres stronghold which is the orcs though.

12-17-2007, 02:27 PM
Mages or Necros. I like them. Mages` wisdom, mystery... or Death, rot and eternal rage of necros.

One could say that Rampart are the elves..

12-18-2007, 05:13 PM
Tower, or Academy, whatever they end up calling it. That is usually may favorite city. Although I am still a tad hesitant about how this will all work.

12-19-2007, 10:58 AM
Haven FTW!!!

12-20-2007, 04:51 PM
I love any race with strong magic stuff (for ex. Dungeon and Tower in H3 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

12-20-2007, 07:12 PM
I'd love to play necro, even though i kinda dislike them in HoMM3.

12-21-2007, 07:12 AM
Hmm, it all depends on how big the game/scenario is, middle or if you want to rule earlie to middle then choose Necropolis if you want to be stong at the end choose Dungedon, black dragons really are hmm godlike.

12-22-2007, 03:35 AM
Academy for the win.

12-27-2007, 10:29 PM
Demons. It was a tough choice between Necromancers and Demons, but I chose Demons for their superior destructive magic and tricky units.

12-29-2007, 08:26 PM
Dwarves rules!! I am really happy now that the dwarves have their own faction!! Now I will forever play as these small beer-belly guys!!! =DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Just imagining the way runes will apear in this game ^^
ps.: I am braSilian, so... sorry for my english

01-01-2008, 06:04 PM
Elves are the most sylvanic of them all, so I vote Elves http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Magicians would be nice to try out too.

01-08-2008, 07:19 AM
Academy all the friggin way. The mysticism around them is just so cool.

Titans, Golems, Djinns, Gremlins, Archmages, lots and lots of annoying magics.
Gotta love long distance harrassment. <3

01-08-2008, 03:33 PM
what about that dungeon race from homm3?

01-28-2008, 11:53 PM
INFERNO!Nothing like swarms of demons and legions od infernals!!!

01-29-2008, 08:32 PM
Haven. got a thing for lotsa shiny metal. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Other than that, id go for the most money making race because troop hiring is a constant in the game. If there's a race that is uber at range with a good solid, blocker, unit then that might be also a good choice because it minimizes your losses which translates to money saved to be used for further legions.

01-31-2008, 03:53 AM
i like the elves, but i think i'll go with the orcs since they're new and i'm the least tired of them yet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

01-31-2008, 11:40 AM
Haven for the victory. I've played them on all HOMM versions as my primairy race. I love their archangels http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

02-02-2008, 12:45 PM
I guess i go for Dwarves or orcs..hmm I love the barbaric, freedom seeking, savage orcs but also love the norse inpired dwarves with a taste for snow, ale, roasted meat and berserkers, Im norwegian after all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I go for the dwarves, the orcs if I change my mind http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

02-04-2008, 12:03 PM
I am going to be academic I think. that's what they are called tho? the race with the gremlins.

03-09-2008, 02:41 PM
Hmm...Haven, Necropolis, Haven, Necropolis...HAVEN http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif After all they are always the ones who saves the day. And i couldn't handle the stench of undead after all ^^

03-10-2008, 11:33 AM
I like Necromancers,death and rally is genius.

(I am Poland so have got error)

03-12-2008, 01:40 PM
Necromancers- i hope there wount be any bug with necromancy skill.

And umuk just dont..

03-14-2008, 11:18 AM
i'll got with academy, or if haven is mostly played, than haven. Conquering others and not having same units sucks imo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

03-16-2008, 09:00 AM
I'll try the necromancers. I like their overwhelming magic powers in H5 although their creature characteristics are weak but they make up with quantity. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Will see how it's gonna be in HOMM Kingdoms.

03-16-2008, 09:12 AM
Dungeon is best!

03-16-2008, 09:20 AM
i'll play necros. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
or mages. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

dunno, i played order and death in IV
didn't play III a lot http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

03-19-2008, 01:08 AM
I'd definitely go for either Elves or Magicians, they've always been my best throughout the HOMM games. The trouble will be deciding which...

03-27-2008, 11:33 AM
Necro's. People seem to be forgetting the way combat will go in Kingdoms. There won't be any 'blocking' for your ranged units through placement of troups. Combat is calculated by your strategy of which creatures to field period. Ranged Units are 50% more powerful than Infantry, Calvary are 50% more powerful than Ranged, and Infantry are 50% more powerful than Calvary. It's a rock-paper-scissors thing which is great.

03-27-2008, 01:08 PM
i donĀ“t know, what is better - dwarves or dark elves?

04-04-2008, 09:02 AM
I will definitely play every race. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif
but my favorite ever since I first played has been the Necropolis and they will be my first to play, then tower.

04-04-2008, 08:39 PM
Of course Dungeon, have the best spells and the first units can be good attackers

04-05-2008, 03:01 AM
Probably I will play "Magicians" (Academy) ... with all your dragons of Necropolis etc. ... my thunder titans will destroy you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

04-05-2008, 02:05 PM
i'll go with necropolis.
nothing better than having a nice horde of undead warriors http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

also i want to see how they've integrated the necromancy-stuff in the game^^

04-18-2008, 12:37 PM

Come on!

How about Ents, Cerberus, Pegasus, Dragons?

Undoubtedly it is clear to everyone that Heroes 3 is the best turn based strategy game in the Universe as far as we are aware of it, so I'd go either with Necropolis or Castle or Random http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

04-19-2008, 06:21 PM
why are dwarves and orcs in the poll????
They couldn't be played.

04-28-2008, 10:05 AM


04-30-2008, 07:21 PM
I really liked the Fortress races (especially the lizard men) so I was disappointed when almost all of them disappeared.

06-04-2008, 08:24 PM
I love being a mage,because they have powerful spells and their archmage http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

06-17-2008, 04:23 AM
Uhm, most likely Orcs or Dark Elves.

06-17-2008, 05:15 AM
Hmm, that's a difficult decision. I'm thinking on Dark Elves or Magicians. The eternal fight between Black Dragons and Titans. From HoMM II I've allways been using those races as my favourites. However, Necros could be a good election, but it depends on Necromancy hability power...

06-19-2008, 03:27 PM
elves ftw

06-20-2008, 11:17 AM
Necros are the best.Let's be serious guys what is better than a nice sworm of scheleton archers and warriors and a beautiful tent that kils 2 black dragons in a round.Isn't that great?

07-06-2008, 05:32 AM
Necromancers win. Let the death plagues infect the world!

07-10-2008, 01:08 AM
Necro. But there is a lot of dark mages and skellys already soo... maybe i'd change my mind for the sake of Balance... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

08-07-2008, 01:13 PM
No one has mentioned Elementals!

I think their potential for combining multi-layered resistances could be an interesting twist to the HOMMK combat model. They are also a natural for focusing on summoning magics, putting a lot of responsibility on the hero (because they are generally weak at melee), and for commanding the mighty phoenix!

08-07-2008, 05:36 PM
It depends on how the game plays out... if it resets itself completely periodically, I'd go for Haven the first time. If it doesn't, or at least your hero carries over, then I'd definitely go magician.

08-08-2008, 04:17 AM
I would go with demons my other choice would have been necros but most people would play necros so it was an easier decision.
But it's not 100% as I have to see what each race offers in order to decide.

@ Finnien

If your hero carries over wouldn't that be very unfair for those who has just started ?

10-09-2008, 08:21 AM
i love Dungedon

11-14-2008, 06:08 PM
Demons (Inferno) - just to have a swarm of Succubus Mistresses at my will ... *giggles*


12-01-2008, 10:59 PM
Ill say Necro. Army of Death!!! All the perks and a large army make for a good combo. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I'm a veteran in HOMMV and other parts...i didnt play any multiplayer game in HOMMV with any other race then Haven!!!i like haven beacuse of traning grounds(i can turn 100 pesants in 100 archers in a minute)and i love just crossbowman with their attacks(no range penalty yay!!!)


01-29-2009, 07:30 AM
Dungeon,my favorite race from both Heroes 3 and Heroes 5.I am REALLY good with this race...Best tier 2 from all Heroes games------->Blood Sisters.

01-29-2009, 08:17 AM
Well,now that I've read all the posts,I think I'll
give some advices.First,don't be fooled by the choices in the poll,if you want strong spells you should go for Dungeon(Dark Elves),they are masters of destructive magic.Second,H5 and HK's gameplay are quite similar so I don't believe you should worry about what race to begin with. Whatever your choice is you can be sure that you will play as ALL the other races as well.Third,my hints are totally based on my experience with the previous Heroes games...Hope I was helpful.

01-29-2009, 08:51 AM
Dark Elves (Dungeon)or Warlocks from the first 2 heroes is probably my favorite race because of the epic clash of titan vs Black Dragon from the HOMM 2...

BTW Rampart are basically the elves...while fortress was those lizard guys...turn dwarfs now lol...I forget the races in HoMM 4

The HOMM4 Races were:
Life (Haven), Order (Mages), Nature (Rampart) Chaos (Dungeon), Death (Necromancers) & Might (Stronghold)

i'd go for necros - i love revieving the corpses of my slain enemys and have them serve me ^^

07-22-2009, 12:32 PM
I like Dwarves, they are so funny and strong, like Gimli in Lotr movies.
