Faction Poll

Just curious to see who everyone thinks the best faction is and why? Or the faction they prefer to play? I'm new to the game so I'm curious on everyone's opinion.

Right now dwarves are my favorite. Their support destruction is incredible right now and they are one of the beat suited to deal with 2 othe strong races, orcs and chaos.

My favorite…and most winningest deck…is Orcs. I have a self damaging Orc deck that throws 'Beardburna' out at the opponant extremely fast for 2nd turn burns.With the new cards that came out for self damaging Orcs (get outta my way and the other one that prevents actions against damaged units) they are able to stick around long enough to really put the hurt on. 2nd turn burn: any Orc support, preferably a couple of 'mob o hutz' played on the first turn into the kingdom zone and maybe a baby squig. 2nd turn…     2nd 'baby squig', sac baby squig to 'yous bigga', 'we'z bigga', 'Beardburna' comes into play for 2 resources and one damage, 'spida huntin', 'war paint'. He's swinging for 11 damage on second turn. Very hard to stop. Especially if you have the new tactic that prevents him from being targeted.

The faction with the most direct approach of securing victory stands to be the strongest.

While I do not own the entire collection, just core, assault and eternal war,  I think Orc is the strongest faction, with a combination of cheap units and hard hitting yet cost efficient power house (Borgut facebeater, Gobbo Big Boss), they can easily overpower the more fragile races with sheer damage output.

They are also good at destroying units, supports and developments (lobber crew, troll vomit, rip dere'Ead off, pillage, foot of gork), giving opponent a hard time to muster any defence against their rush. 

I understand that each faction have their own method for defending agianst such rush, but i find it less direct than to, say, outright puncin'em in 'dere face.

Definitely Orcs. They got everything from support destruction to mass unit removal. No other race can pressure with two one cost units like orcs do with  spider riders and goblin raider and the fact that with unending horde they keep coming back, makes them ridiculous.

Orcs would've been the best race easily really if it wasn't for dark elves imbalanced  pleasure cults. That on first turn just turns off any deck…cafe
