The WORST Hero

Recommended Posts

All in all this contest turns into a hobbit/dwarf bash ;) But at least for me this is not a really big surprise because dwarfs without Dains buff are not that good of a single hero class and hobbits decks are dominated by Lore-Pippin/Tactics-Merry and the all mighty Sam. Each other hobbit simply does not fit the playstyle of hobbits and are really really bad as single heroes.

Sam/LoPippin/TaMerry is definitely the best all-hobbit solo combo, but I don't agree that all the others are "really really bad" as single heroes.  Bilbo's overcosted, but his ability is great.  Frodo has been used widely as a single hero.  And I like SpMerry a lot as a single hero, low threat and repeatable threat reduction.

Spirit Merry is really good I forgot about him! He's really good for any secrecy deck or decks that ramp up thread quickly (Yeah I see what you did there Boromir! ;) )

Frodo was good in "the old days" because you could handle high attack strength guys but now you go Beregond or Chumpblock so hmmm dunno.... I haven't used him in a veeery long time. Bilbo's ability is great no doubt but he is waaaaaaaay overcosted and his stats are "really really bad" ;) Even for solo play 9 starting thread and literally no contribution to your group (only stat above 1 is defense and with 2 defense and 2 HP he simply can't defend regular enemies nowadays) I would not use him. But sure that's my opinion about him ;)

A: Spirit Pippin - If for no other reason than it prevents you from playing Lore Pippin

B: Oin - Dunhere can at least be really good in the right deck.

C: Dwalin - Balin can be a life saver

D: Dori - Come on now...

E: Bombur - Mirlonde enables a lot of good secrecy decks

F: Ori - Ori isn't bad, but how is Bifur on this list?  He's the best splash lore hero in the game.

G: Galdor - I actually think he's underrated, but I like Erk a lot

H: Fatty - They are both pretty bad.

I do have a suggestion.The "Best Hero Championchip" has this 1on1 pyramid sceme until the end. But probably you should switch in round 4 or 5 to each-against-everyone. So we would get some sort of ranking, not only just the single most worst hero.

This would make things a bit too complicated.

A:Thalin-Spirit Pippin

B:Dúnhere-Óin

C:Balin-Dwalin

D:Elrohir-Dori

E:Mirlonde-Bombur

F:Bifur-Ori

G:Erkenbrand-Galdor of the Havens

H:Fatty Bolger-Bilbo Baggins

 

Interesting bracket.  Lots of heroes that are highly situational or specialised (eg. Dunhere, Dwalin, Thalin to a lesser extent), or that don't function particularly well outside of dedicated decks (eg. Mirlonde, all the dwarven throng heroes - hell, even poor old Pippin can be built around).  The glaring exceptions, for me, are Balin and Bifur - two of the most splashable and useful heroes in their respective spheres should never have made it this far.

One mans trash.....

Elrohir is one of the best heroes in the game in my opinion.

Very shocked he is still included in this...

 

My vote was for Elrohir instead Dori ^^

 

 

I also made this vote.

A.  Spirit Pippin.  Most useless hero in the game.

B.  Dwalin.  Only lowers threat in the quests that have orcs and only has 2 attack to kill them with.

C.  Bombur.  Thematic power, but just not that useful -- and outside his power he's not useful.

D.  Fatty.  Second most useless hero in the game.

A. Spirit Pippin - Should be the favorite to win the tournament now

B. Dori - Do people actually like Dori now?  Dwalin is at least decent against Orc quests.

C. Bombur - Bifur does not belong here.

D. Fatty - He's the 3rd best spirit Hobbit, but if you need 3 spirit Hobbits you might actually be better off with Pippin.

A: Spirit Pippin - Oin works well in the right dwarf fellowship deck. SpPippin doesn't work in any deck.
B: Dori - Both bad, but Dori is worse because the card had so much more potential...
C: Bombur - Why is Bifur even still in the running?!
D: Fatty Bolger - I actually like Fatty, I think he's an interesting hero and has a place in multiplayer hobbit support decks. That said, Galdor has a far wider range of uses, despite the superiority of his ally version. (Speaking of which, an ally Fatty would have been nice!).

A:Spirit Pippin

B:Dori

C:Bombur

D:Galdor of the Havens - I voted for Goldor because Fatty and Marry (both spirit) could get a go together.

Dori and Galdor are quite new heroes. It is so sad that they made it this far in the list.
