Re: Improve In-Game statistics (Gold value)

Sounds good. We could also add a "villages captured" and "villages lost" (where they must transfer ownership, not simply be unclaimed at first, or lost from losing a leader). It might not mean much if villages are constantly being swapped, and the time of capture is more importan...

Re: About the format of attacks ( damage-strikes )

When I see hyphens or minus symbols in games, I'm too lazy to tell them apart. Also, I generally read "4-4" as doing a minimum of 4 damage and a maximum of 4 damage. I might be a bit confused at "7-3", but my first thought would be they listed the maximum first for some reason. I...

Re: Undead Unit Promotion Guide

One thing I find insufficient about that list is that it only lists the obvious traits. Often, when leveling, certain units get increased defence that is amazing. I think a lvl 3 poacher gets 40% dodge in water without any elemental weaknesses. But it's a great list overall. Also, that's a link that...

Re: What are you reading right now?

After watching the History Channel until 2 am, I read the second half of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Just had an urge to read through it again. Although I was late to class again >_> I love satire, Mark Twain does nothing if not satire. I want to hunt up Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's C...

Re: A Few Minor Questions/Ideas

Your avatars are random as hell :D Anyways, I'm going to put these ideas into storage for a while, and possibly try to make an era out of it. I am actually still getting some new ideas. Anyone is still free to use any ideas in this thread. Also, I've noticed in 1.5.9 that the "feeding" abi...

Re: Extend list of players on the server

I initially didn't notice the Friends list until someone told me about it. I just never bothered looking through the preferences which I hadn't used in 1.3. But yes, you can make a friends list. I would like the ability to leave descriptions for myself to read, tho. Either that, or also make an igno...

Re: A Few Minor Questions/Ideas

It's my style to not actually code, and instead lavish praise on anyone willing to take my ideas. It hasn't really worked so far, but that won't stop me! I still think the damage of the merman hoplite should be increased. And my comments on giving level 3's of the poacher/trapper branch 60% dodge in...

Re: MP idea - color

I generally find that it's only trolls (the ones who don't try to win) or newbies who choose the same color as another person (when they're host). It's annoying, but most people can deal with it.

Re: XP for leadership?

The only way I see for this to work is if leaders take the xp from the unit that killed, which is undesirable anyways. Yes, leadership is overpowered, especially if it's not your king, and can stay at the frontlines at all times.

Re: A Few Minor Questions/Ideas

Heh. I guess my last idea has been added to 1.5.6. I'm assuming that with the dread bat, all default factions now have a unit with 10 default movement points? Every faction except Klangans has a unit with 60% dodge in swamp. Seeing as Klangans already are one of the weakest factions in swamp, can th...

Re: Faction/leader choices - random?

Really? 4 MP leaders get quick now? Well, I won't laugh so much when the enemy chooses a Elder Wose or Shock Trooper, then. Yes, you want a leader to have at least 5 MP, preferrably 6 MP. Depending on the map, this can vary. For example, if the map has multiple keeps, a 6 MP leader can quickly chang...

Re: A Few Minor Questions/Ideas

These are more balancing issues. Heavy infantrymen and their advancements generally don't benefit much from traits, except intelligent and quick, but all units benefit (somewhat) from this. Can fearless be added to the trait pool for them?

Re: Another observation

Yes, that's pretty much the idea. Attacks are supposed to hurt the enemy more than the enemy hurts you. But remember, playing defensively means that the enemy gets to choose when to engage you, which is not good if they have leadership or are lawful or chaotic. Don't forget to take villages for gold...

Re: Unit Leveling comparison guide

Drakes-The unit with high mobility and attack, but low defence. As always, use drakes to roll depending on the time of day usually, and have saurians help stab the enemy if they chase you too far at night. Drake Burner-Drake Flare, Fire Drake Drake Flares are nice leadership units, considering they ...

Re: Unit Leveling comparison guide

Undead- Except for dark mages (not including liches), all undead resist poison. They generally have very lopsided resistances. Skeleton-Deathblade, Revenant Deathblades focus on getting to the enemy do deal great damage. 8-5 is a very high attack for lvl 2, and 6 MP is nice, but with only 39 hp, abu...
