Sounds like the Lancer should be removed or rebalanced.

If you should always upgrade to the Knight, the Lancer shouldn't be in the game.

Retirement

So I've sometimes found myself in the following position in a scenario: (1) I've leveled up some units (2) I don't really want to put them into battle any more in this scenario (3) Oh well. This has happened to me in some cases where the gold balance was very tight. I would have liked to just walk m...

The engine is not too hard: it's very flexible. Some of the campaigns and scenarios.... that's another matter. More "not-too-hard" campaigns would definitely be nice. Tale of Two Brothers on 'easy' is genuinely pretty easy; South Guard on 'easy' is a pretty comfortable difficulty for me. HTTT unfort...

So far they've all been pretty interesting well-balanced.... until Crossroads, which is totally busted in 1.1.7. In the finest tradition of only complaining when something i...

WAY too difficult!

(1) Medium recently (Easy long ago) (2) 10 (most difficult) (3) clear objectives (4) confused and boring storyline and dialogue (5) money shortage, making it difficult to collect cannon fodder; any unit can get slaughtered in one turn if three enemies surround it, and this is impossible to avoid, ma...
