What is the best team on BFME2? Is it the Men, the Elves, the Dwarves? Or Goblins, Isengard, or Mordor? Rate them if you'd like to explain how you got your answer. If you do here are the catagories:

  1. Quality, are they using strong troops?

  2. Stratagy, can they pull off excellent plans like ambushes, etc.

  3. Defense, can they hold off a big army for a long time with the same units?

  4. Sieges, can they perform devastating atks with their siege equipment.

  5. Overall, then tally up the overall score based on the 4 qualities above.

Lets put all the factions to the test and find wo the best is. (don't forget to include units special atks like Gaurdian's Charge, etc.)

We all have a choice, so make yours wisely. If its wrong then make the best out of it.

I assume this is for vanilla BFME2 since you didn't mention Angmar.

there is no BEST faction in BFME2 and your 4 categories are a little debatable if that is your base for a good faction. The factions are suppose to be different to cater to different play styles (spam vs quality).

goblins seemed to do best competetively in BFME2
dwarves and mordor are probably the top in RotWK 2.01
elves are a little too powerful in RotWK 2.02D

Join me and many others on RotWK patch 2.02 and enjoy the game in its most balanced form ever.

Imo best faction on bfme2 1.06 is men. They are so OP...
since thye have boromir with his horn of gayness and aragorn with his BM on fort . SoG spam is very strong and very very easy to execute...

I hate them.

Dwarves are also one of the better factions in 1.06, i personally am very bad with them however.

And don't say that there isn't a best faction.
1.06 is imba as ****.

And so far i heard...

ROTWK is 10x more imba.

There aren't really strong armies, but an army vs. an another army can be strong (Mordor vs. Elves, elves hardly have a counter for Mūmakills, trolls, nazgūl and corsairs )

In addition, some factions depend on the early game rush, while others wait to use 25 point pp's and super strong units... there is no best faction, only a best strategan

@Masterbadeend. Mordor is indeed a hard MU for elves because of corsairs (1 hit Mallorn Trees )and naz. However trolls and mumakils are weak vs archers and even more vs.magic (silverthorn). So those 2 should not be of a problem tbh...
