Re: Ladder Council

@Aldarisvet: Your doubts are reasonables, but you are skiping most important factor: Players Skill Difference No matter how many games are played, even with 1.000.000 games you could have totally biased data.

Re: Spearmen Balance

That being said, I absolutely think that balance changes for multiplayer should come first beyond all else - because that is where this video game has to be utmost designed as a video game made to be played competitively. you're preaching to the choir :) unfortunately certain devs thought the exact...

Re: Battle for Wesnoth on Steam
