I haven't seen a poll for this in a while and I haven't see a poll that included Timber Peak.
Who do you think is the BEST hero?
(Definition of BEST: Most enjoyable to play and beneficial to the overall success of the heroes)
I know this may be different per mission, but try to think overall effect. I decided to make the 3 survivor heroes the same as the original heroes since they are similar and probably not played together.

Vote for your top 3!

Wait, do we know anything about Blood in the Forest yet? How does that have votes?

Well my group is in for a shock when I show them these results. Two of our favourite must pick characters barely register.
The current leader is also affectionately called 'Captian Idiotpants' due to a spectacular tendancy to limp around with rolls of 1 and generally throw games. (the luck has been appaling in this one case I will admit).

Johnny. Finally, a sexy guy in a game instead of a sexy girl.

Do you think the expansion heroes are not getting as many votes because they are not as good? Or, because people don't have the expansions?

Both. Some of the expansion characters aren't that great, some are tricky to play well, and even the good/great ones not as many people own as own the base game.

I still wonder why people are voting for characters we know nothing about (Blood in the Forest).

In my case, it's a matter of not having the expansions (yet). They're on the list, but not extremely high up on it. Blood in the Forest will probably be the first one I actually buy - it's the only one so far that's got me really excited about it.

I am surprised Becky isn't higher - I would've thought her healing abilities would've been a no-brainer, but I guess that's not as important to other groups as it is to us.

And I'd have to agree that Sheriff Anderson tends to have some appalling luck, but he does make up for it by making it so easy to get guns.

We always like Jenny a lot, too, because she's practically a lucky charm in almost every game we play. She very rarely loses a fight, and tends to have a strong zombie killing record...

Wow, I certainly picked a few minority Characters!
I had to say (In no particular order... other than alphabetic...)

Jade:
Rebellious has saved her ass multiple times, by avoiding wounds on doubles and being able to roll and extra fight dice on a Strange Hero's square can turn her and Victor into a killing team, unless they start to Bicker... or Victor says screw it and figures since he's on his way to jail what difference does a jailbait chick make now!

Jake Cartwright:
Resourceful comes in handy no matter WHAT scenario you play.

Mr Goddard:
Fire is incredibley handy how many times have I wanted to ignite something and had no Lighter!!!
Quick Thinking has it's moments as well, many times playing I've thought I'd trade these two Items for ANYTHING else right now, IE your holding a Fire Axe and Ammo and you'd give anything for the chance at drawing a Gun or First Aid card. Plus you can use it to feed the discard pile Guns or Gas or whatever you may want to Pick Up: with another Character.

Victor:
Convict is easily fixed, if you even NEED to...
Lock Pick is nothing to sneeze at...
Rage is where he shines. Even if you are playing a scenario where you want to be searching like crazy, he's good to cover the team while they search, with 2 weapons he's up to 4 dice, add in weapons bonus and maybe even an event card and you're soon rolling a handful of dice!
Try this on, Victor with Heroic Resolve, Chainsaw, and Baseball Bat... You're now rolling 7 dice and win on Ties, and you haven't even USED the Baseball Bat yet,.. with luck the Baseball Bat is infinite!

Rachelle's my favorite, so I'm partial to her (being able to avoid a damage on the roll of 6 is pretty good, along with her starting gear).

I'm surprised not many people picked Nikki. She's a popular hero in our groups as she seems to always manage to become a zombie slayer.
