What race is the best? and why?

 
Flag Post

no race is better than the other. It all depends your playing and battle style to which race best suits you.

UNDEAD FTW!

Elves buddy, all the way. Light Infantry is among the best (because of the chance to completely avoid damage special). Archers ARE the best. Even after a nerf in the caps and starting level. Cavalry are good if you know how to use them. Finally, the HI’s are wicked when you begin equipping them with top notch armour and weapons.

Yeah, so is every HI when you equip them with good items :) . In general, all the races have their own strengths. The elves have good archers, the human units are all decent overall (especially their artillery), and the dwarves have relatively fast HI (13 for movement vs. 10). As for the dark side, the Dark Legion has very strong HI (some might even argue that their the strongest HI), the Undead units never flee unless they are commanded to, and while I don’t know much about the orcs, they appear to have good cavalry and their HI can do a lot of damage with their rage ability. Like templar said, it depends on your style. For example, if you enjoy the thought of putting arrows in your enemy’s skull, play the elves. If you like using HI like tanks, join the dark legion. If instead you want to play your HI more like LI, use the dwarves with their speedy HI. Hate seeing your units flee in terror? Then join the undead. If you want HI that can dish out a lot of punishment, join the orcs. And finally, if you like artillery, or if you are not sure yet of how you want to play, you can always try the versatile humans.

Sincerely,

A member of the Dark Legion

“Some might argue” yeah but they would be wrong. Dark Legion has THE BEST HI without any equipment on. The devs said they are glass cannons. Couple good wacks can destroy them but if you aren’t fast you are dead. Also Dark Artillery can shoot over cover.

this is fairly random but I personnaly think that the dolphoons of the dark legion are worse than the lesser demons, mainly because they are even more glass cannony than the HI and usally are 3/4 dead by the time you have all your units in the right place and thier rage ability and lack of armor doesn’t help

No, Elf is because their longbows have the most range and missile… We all know this can go on forever. As the1templar said, it depends on how you use them. Races are built that way. You face an Elf infantry against a DL infantry and they’ll lose. Elves should use their arrows to weaken the enemy before they approach, possible reducing morale low enough that they retreat in contact with their HI, and use superior speed to outflank and chase down the enemy. Dwarves have quick HI and the best infantry; therefore they are able to position their HI in the best fighting positions and hold down an optimal area, but their cav are too slow to catch up to artillery.

They all have strengths and weaknesses; it’s how you use these and exploit those of your opponent that determines who will win the fight, not which one is best. If one race were better than another, the devs would rebalance it.

who is they? who will lose? dark or elf?

He probably means the Elves will lose even though its not a guarantee at all, and depends on the levels of the squads. Its also a bad example since DL LI are one of the few with a specific racial counter.

The Dark Legion is probably the best,but I would say that undead is bad

Undead may be weak, bad, but how about your race? Undead never flee except when commanded and come with more numbers than the others.
