Re: Poll: Imbalanced matchups

please change your link to the ladder to be http://wesnoth.gamingladder.info/ as we still do not support https (if anyone that knows how to convert it wants to volunteer their time, it is about 4 hours of work) Knalgans > Undead (high) Drakes > Knalgans (medium) Loyalists > Knalgans (medium) Knalgan...

Re: Imbalanced matchups

Thanks for the reply, radarsu. Undead's strength in the matchup vs Northerners is Walking Corpses which assist in countering trolls pretty well. Undead do well defending in that matchup and are better than Northerners during the day. Have you played competitively on the ladder at all? There was actu...

Re: Ladder Era - Competitive 1v1 play on the Ladder of Wesnoth

I agree with all the changes except for adding hardy trait. Maybe it gives dwarves some advantage in orc matchup, but it gives undead even harder kick in a butt in dwarves vs undead matchup, which is already unfavorable. I find it unnecessary complication. Just remove healthy trait instead - simple...

Re: Ladder Era - Competitive 1v1 play on the Ladder of Wesnoth

The second change I find unnecessary is poacher with dexterous trait. I find him decent even without it and I think it's against the lore for other units than elves to have dexterous trait. If he needs a buff - just give him 1 hp more. Same thing goes for a shaman. I don't think there's lore about ...

Im not sure I've ever heard anyone claming Orcs > Undead. I know for a while there people thought Undead was far superior in the Orc matchup. Is there a reason you think this matchup is imbalanced?

Re: Imbalanced matchups

A decent amount of perceived 'imbalanced matchups' are map dependent. There are some that exist regardless of maps though: high imbalance: Dwarves > Undead - Footpads, Ulfs, and Fighters are incredibly difficult to deal with as Undead medium imbalance: Dwarves < Loyalist - Loyalist out-maneuver Dwar...

Re: Main Factions Balance

Of the two of us who do you think is more qualified? While this isn't directed at me, I'll add my two cents nonetheless - statements like that make you come off as rather arrogant. Arrogance that is justified in regards to these two. Really its ridiculous. I'm done responding to this thread.

Re: Main Factions Balance

... I know you think you're a masterful genius because you've watched a few replays, but I often disagree with your analysis and let's just say I have a bit more experience with you when it comes to analytical thinking of competitive Wesnoth. I dont owe you anything. I could go over a long list of ...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I think you have trouble with understanding. All of that are opinions not facts and I want to see facts. Opinions might be important but only if you have something to back it up. Funny: These are not even good convincing opinions but some random one liners without context. One replay means nothing ...

What is this claim based on? Years and years of playing the game at a high level as well as speaking to others that played at a high level as well. This is not a statement that requires such in-depth analysis and proof. It is common knowledge among the best players in the game. I'm speechless. Firs...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I had a talk with one of the top players of wesnothlife and he said that the main reason why undead have lower win ratio is because they are harder to play, not because they are imbalanced. I think the main reason UD have a lower win ratio is because of how unbalanced the matchup is vs Knalgans in ...
