Re: Fire and Flight (campaign)

Velensk,

Sounds good. I have already begun the process, starting with the opening storyline text.

The changes won't affect gameplay.

Re: Share undoable moves with allies

gabba,

Glad to see this project fleshed out more for Google Summer of Code. Your ideas are great and would significantly improve the team experience of the game.

Good luck!

Re: Fire and Flight (campaign)

I wasn't talking about the grammer though for all I know it could be quite poor too. I was talking about the writing: What is being said not the syntax for saying it. So do you need a writer for a better storyline, or someone to revise what you already have? Or both? I can revise if you want me to....

Re: Fire and Flight (campaign)

I feel that even by my standards the writing in this campaign is exceptionally poor. If somebody wants to give their hand at it I'll consider any amont/sort of revision to the writing as long as it does not affect the gameplay. If you send me all the text, I will be more than happy to edit it for g...

Re: should lev 2 Gryphs have Skirm ability?

I fail to see why, of all things, skirmisher is what you chose to buff them with. They already move a great deal and can fly to surprise attack units from the fog. That seems to be quite enough. Skirmisher would mean a wall of units would do even less to protect fragile units against fog attacks. It...

Re: World Conquest: Limiting Strat versus AI

Rya, I played through your scenario. It took me four times to beat it. I played both sides by myself (all sides random), winning against an Undead CPU with two Rebel races. It definitely provides a good challenge. I'm not too, too crazy about the map. I would like to see a bigger map that allows for...

Re: Share undoable moves with allies

I'm all for this, as long as it's feasible to code. This is much better polished than your last proposal.

Hope it can happen.

Re: World Conquest: Limiting Strat versus AI

Rya,

I appreciate your well thought out post. I'm very interested in playing some of your scenarios. I'd like to see how that plays out.

Do you have any that are completed?

Re: World Conquest: Limiting Strat versus AI

No, it's not. But I noticed it more when playing World Conquest because combat is on a much bigger scale in the later scenarios.

Re: World Conquest: Limiting Strat versus AI

Even so, my point is simply that the current AI limits play styles by anticipating poor attacks. Currently, and especially in World Conquest (i.e. larger scale games), hard rushes by the AI require a defensive position for the most part. There is a general consensus that mustering a successful attac...

Re: World Conquest: Limiting Strat versus AI

That's pretty much the general strategy against the AI, whether in multiplayer campaigns, single player campaigns, or normal multiplayer games. Really? Your strategy in normal multiplayer games is to bank on your opponent to play at a sub-par level by rushing into your defense, ignoring time of day...

Re: World Conquest: Limiting Strat versus AI

I understand that the current limited AI is aided by massive gold in order to make it more competitive. The problem with that fix is that it really doesn't matter how many troops the AI has--if they use them rashly, they will ultimately lose against the strategy I have presented (which nobody thus f...

Re: World Conquest: Limiting Strat versus AI

I played around with teleportation, and I agree that it is useful. I found it easier to hold my outlying villages, as you mentioned. However, I still consider this technique on a smaller scale than what my original question was asking. It fits the construct of the same strategy that I see as the onl...

Re: Footpad + ulf v undead, overpowered

That's the problem with strategies like these (take HODOR, for example). They might work for one game, but if you're doing a best of 3 series, it's not going to be win-win all the time. Even in the game, once your opponent is on to what you're doing (just like with HODOR), they can adapt accordingly...
