Well, first off...Ubisoft has already confirmed that one of the final 2 factions will be a completely new one. So all we really have to consider is that last faction. I voted for Stronghold. Not because I prefer them, but rather because it makes the most sence in terms of game balance.

I fully expect the new town to be a mostly magic based town and a theoretically "good" faction. Stronghold will be a might based town. I'm sure some will call them "evil" but I think they lean more towards "neutral" IMO.

I guess we'll see in a few weeks. :O)

you are missing some major factions... Dungeon? + what Chuckles said.

4th faction will be Academy or Sylvan... i would be really surprised if there will be other.

I'm guessing Dark Elves = Dungeon and Orcs = Stronghold.

I really wanted to vote for the DarkElves, but what would DarkElves be with out Normal Elves to conflict with? I think for the sake of the story, DarkElves and Normal Elves should be introduce in the Expansion this time (T_T)

If there is one new faction, then the 4th faction I believe will be Academy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

This is an impossible vote.

I want all core factions in the vanilla game goddammit, aka sylcan academy and dungeon in addition to the 3 already. 5 factions + 1 new faction...wtf were they thinking...

I'm sure it will be great, game looks sexy and all that....I just *sigh*

........................

EDIT:

I voted academy in the end but my vote didn't register ( 0% for academy still )

There are plenty of games where you can fight dragons etc but for me Titans ARE HOMM...needz moar Tower/Academy.

Swamp faction!

HIII's Fortress is the only town from the classic Heroes games that has yet to be represented in the new series. It was quite a popular town, yet all its fans have been completely shafted so far. Bring it back! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I bet tribal Wood Elves will be one of them. I hope so. Werewolves, Elves, Dendroids, kind Dragons and Unicorns. "Thats the way I like it, tatataaa"

For the never before seen? C'mon.
They said the same for the supposedly new Dungeon town in H5. Riiiiight.. We got ALOT of seen before stuff, like: Minotaurs, Warlocks, Dragons, Hydras, underground etc.

We might have never seen Dark Elves before in the HOMM series, but WHO havent heard/seen of dark elves (to have them kinda original they should be called shadow elves) before?? Nothing noteworthy new there. I call bogus this time around too, hope Im wrong.

So. My guess for the mysterious new town for H6 would be a swamp based town if in "never before seen in UBIsofts HOMM franchise" or my orignality based guess is some kind of Dark Forest town with werewolves, witchdoctors and wisps etc, not evil, just looming dark woods/forest environments with renegade dwarves, orcs or maybe even werewolf witchdoctor leaders http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

We've been told that Necromancy is having it's rise to the foreground during Heroes VI so the 4th faction will probably be Academy to fit with the story.

But the new faction? Hopefully some kind of swamp, altough they could, hypothetically, make Academy swamp/jungle-based and then have some kind of disaster which transforms it to a desert or something.

This!
Fortress in H3 is the most epic faction in the series so far!
I voted Academy, but I prefer the feel of Tower in H3 over H5 Academy.

They already mentioned that Crag Hack will appear in the game, so I really really want a Stronghold Faction WITH BEHEMOTHS OH MY GOD PLEASE BRING BEHEMOTHS BACK!!!!

They said tha a Crag Hack may return, not that the Crag Hack will return. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif The second is somewhat impossible if they don't reconcile the old world with the new one.

well yeah, but he's still going to be a barbarian, which would suggest the resurgence of the orcs. =)

1. there are at least 2 boss fights per level, he might be one of the boss fights
2. since orcs were created by blah blah blah, going back 400 yrs might mean a. u'll encounter a new faction to which crag might belong (before the change), b. crag might be a part of chaos before orcs were created, c. crag might be whatever they choose him to be (ornella changed sides, agreal changed sides... they might change his race, appearance or pretty much do as they please), d. he isnt confirmed to make a return

As much as I love Crag Hack, I hope he doesn't return. Crag Hack was part of the old universe, he was great and all but that's where he belongs.

Bringing him back now would probably hurt his image. And the new world's image too, since he doesn't belong there. Instead they should focus on making new legendary characters that can be comperable to Crag Hack.

I really, really, really want them to reconcile the two universes. It'd be the simplest thing; just say that Ashan is a planet in the old M&M galaxy and problem solved. It makes no sense for them to neglect sch a great resource for story.

So, if any of you played Dark Messiah, there's a part where Leanna tells Sareth (you) that Wizards created Orcs as shock troops during the War of the Blood Moon. I wouldn't be surprised to see Orcs as a core unit for the Wizard faction.

Anyway, I'm guessing Elves or Naga will be one of the other factions.

Except that the Orcs got out over 60 years ago (http://www.heroesofmightandmagic.com/heroes5/timeline.shtml).
