Yeah, i know factions were added gradually and Drakes weren't there since the *very* very beginning. But 1.0 seemed like beginning enough for the sake of the argument. And I personally remember them since 1.2 :geek:

Re: Khalifate Era

Also, it might be easier to wait until there actually is a Khalifate campaign and then rename it. I would like to point out that there is still no mainline drakes campaign. The faction that has been around since the very beginning. We can wait years or decades until somebody comes around to create ...

Re: Khalifate Era

Question: is Noy still around? It seems like we are in some kind of weird dead-mans-hand scenario, where everyone agrees (or is at least not opposed) to the name change, solid arguments are being made, unofficial rules being invoked, but no one can make anything because of a decision made 9 years a...

Re: Khalifate Era

Ow ow ow, i was away for only a week and everyone suddenly became so serious... but fine :cry: Why I would like keep those names that sound bad to several people? From my point of view, chance of me doing that is pretty low :eng: I guess it's a matter of a principle at this point, can't argue with p...

Re: Khalifate Era

make them elephants ;) I'm afraid elephants would not really fit in in the historic medieval arabic theme... And tbh. it wouldn't be very realistic either, cause elephants don't live in the desert :eng: BUT! I really like this idea, especially since there were many armies that actually used them! A...

Re: Khalifate Era

Come on Mabuse, i didn't write all this answers for nothing :P Nah, you see, in my opinion, moving away from fantasy and in the general direction of a historically realistic setting is the way to go. The whole high fantasy thing served us well for many years, but now it became kinda obvious that th...

Re: Khalifate Era

I respectfully disagree with you, Qu :) You see, wesnoth is a high-magic western fantasy setting, with dwarves, elfs, orcs, giant walking trees, fire breathing dragons and whatnot. Even the human faction (loys) have magical units, mages. And then... BAM! Another human faction... but without magic......

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: 4player Map Contest and Overhaul!

Haha your map counting script (inspired by you know who 8) ) is mighty indeed, I was considering doing the same manually for the period of the last 7 days, but these numbers ofc are much more representative. Also apparently it would make sense to create a separate category for Isar... just called "I...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: 4player Map Contest and Overhaul!

I think I will return from the nether realm to join the group of "naysayers" :P . What's the advantage of trimming the map list? It's not like there is an "optimal" number of maps, exceeding which would be detrimental to gaming experience. Don't turn this into a "2nd Isar" pls, when a superior map w...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 4th edition

Sure, but how many of the teams had at least one member who was a TGT veteran? Was there any team made all of newcomers? If TGT is not a closed elitist circle then there should be a significant fraction of teams which had no previous affiliation, and may have just seen the server ad and made a team...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 4th edition

I checked the dates : the registration phase began on July 29th (I believe Dunno sent out invitational messages to all the former participants in the beginning of July), the team list filled up on August 19th , while the last two teams who joined the reserve list on 19th and 20th got to play as well...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 4th edition (Grand Final

Huh, the RNG vs. Nerds game on Loris River replay is corrupt. Or is it just me? You'll have to wait for the statistics a bit longer, alpha :geek: Yeah it is corrupted :( @Daunt, Snowman, TBS, tekelili: did you by chance save the replay manually and could post it here? If no, then I guess you can us...
