Aquatic ruins (krait / jellyfish)

Swampland (wisps)
Underground facility (dredge)
Urban battlegrounds (you're a charr)

My favorite is Uncategorized

Most hated is swampland (2nd place: dredge).

My favorite is Swampland, because it is so fast and easy. (Also Solid Ocean, because of the daily :))

Most hated is Volcanic or Drdge, because they are so long and a bit hard.

Level 18.

Don't have a favourite. Least favoured though are dredge (bad groups can take forever to kill the end boss) and uncategorized (trolltastic).

Least: swampland (whips, argh! people in pugs always need a break when we get this one).

Not keen on any underwater content (although the jellyfish is very easy) and for sentimental GW reasons, I really dislike being a charr and killing Ascalon people.  It could be your GW2 ancestors!

Best: I kind of like the rest them.

Just level 5 ^_^ (couldn't complete quite a number because of D/Cs)

I hate the Swamp, it might be easy if you have an adept team but for the few times I've played Fractals (Lv3) it's still the worst.
I love the siege of Ascalon.

MY opinions.

Like: Solid ocean (jade monster) - Not too hard, not too easy. Nice fighting mechanism/idea.
Dislike: Aquatic ruins (krait / jellyfish) - Easy but not many ppl are bothered/don't know to take it to electric cages.
Hate: Underground facility (dredge) - So long and usually at least 1 wipe. End boss can be hard if ppl included who don't know you can dodge trough foes.

Would like to know WHY ppl do (Dis)likes. No QQs. Just own point of view for my own amusement.

haven't done some of them cause I am still at level 1 since I gave up on them due to the amount of DC issues and crashes my parties/I have encountered, but from what I've done:

liked: snowblind, cliffside
indifferent: underground facility
hated: swamp, urban battleground, volcanic
haven't done the rest

snowblind is my personal favorite overall.

Cliffiside is a buggy piece of crap that at best has bad dropping enemies and takes longer to complete than most any other fractal.  Par for course is having team members drop to deaths at spots they can't be rezzed requiring team sucicides or extremely long run backs and having glitches on the last seal.

Swamp is fast, which I like during a run that is going to include three or 4 of them and aquatic can be done with zero brain activity, which can be nice in pugs.

Harpy/Asura map is the funnest frcatal in my opinion, though.  The map has a bunch of substance and variety.  Dredge map also feels like it had more thought put behind it.  I like it because of the droprate on bags along with items on the easy to kill mobs-even though it takes longer to complete than most.

Favorite: Cliffside. I love that big guy.

Least favorite: Aquatic Ruins. No substance to it, just 3 boring easy fights followed by a boring evasive swim and topped off with a boring boss. Boring to the power of three!

Hate swamp, but I'm only level 6 and have only had to do it twice.  I still don't know an effective way to do it.
Favourite cliffside, because of the ending.

I suppose at higher levels my likes and dislikes might change.

Cliffside is annoying for me but my least favorite has to be the Underground fractal due to the sheer amount of time it takes.

My favorite fractal may actually be Volcanic, since at least in the lower difficulties its difficulty is very well-done and it remains challenging without being overwhelming.

Favorite:
Snowblind or Cliffside
Aquatic (On mesmer)

Least favorite:
Battleground -- Sorry, but all my pugs are just a wipe-a-thon at the siegemaster. It gets better after getting in, but there are still wipes along the way.
Dredge might be a close second.

Favourite: Aquatic/Jade Maw/Swamp

All very quick and easy.

Worst: Grawl/Colossal.

End boss for grawl, and the arm seals for colossal, suck.

Level 21.

Favorite: Aquatic, Swamp and Ascalon.

Worst: Cliffside. I don't know what's wrong with this fractal but there are so many bugs. The last two times I have been there we had to cancel because the adds at the final seal didn't spawn the first time and didn't stop spawning the second time.

Love: Swampland, since it is so fast and easy and it provides me with onyx cores, which I need for my legendary. I rarely do pugs so I have a group with voice chat at least 90% of the time.

Hate: Hard to pick, since it depends on the party. With no guardians I hate the Volcanic fractal/Cliffiside fractal the most. Overall the Snowblind fractal is the most boring/tedious, though so when a guardian is in the party, I hate it the most.

A perfect fractal run for me would perhaps be Swampland, Aquatic ruins and Uncategorized. I'm currently on level 14.
