Re: another topic about drakes! (since we don't have enough!

LOL, at first I thought you were serious. I was thinking, attacking a dark adept with a burner at night? Nice thread guys. By the way, who in this post prefers drakes to any other faction? I'm torn between drakes and loyalists, or maybe rebels. I have been a drake player since day one. Still haven'...

Re: Blitzkrieg! (the value of speed in Wesnoth)

While there's much discussion of specific blitzkrieg battles in this thread, I don't see much discussion of the theory behind the strategy. The first post in the thread details some strategic advantages of blitzkrieg, but it's almost entirely about villages. That's all well and good, but I see tact...

Re: Quick Tournament Signup

I just want to say, it's hard to commit to something that keeps changing under you. Also, my teammate is definitely in, but it's going to take some prodding to get him to come post. Yes, some *extreme* prodding, if I may. Who is this mysterious teammate you speak of, Caphriel? ;) Caphriel/ Guderian...

Re: Drakes or Undead 1vs1?

Undead, the adepts are fantastic. All undead units are cheap than drakes. I don't know why 8-2 cold ranged costs 16 (and more hp!) and 7-3 fire ranged costs 20 (with poor hp and one melee hit) Umm...more powerful level up possibilities? And it's 10-2 and 7-2 for DAs, where did you get 8-2 from? You...

Re: Trash my Knalgan strategy

Hi. I was playing Knalgans(mine, picked) vs. Loyalists(randomed) on Freenlands. While i was able to defend, i suffered to much onslaught to be able to launch a proper attack. That caused the game to be very stalematish and pretty long (after about 30 turns we decided to call it a draw). Moreover, a...

Re: critique my drake strategies

I haven't watched the replay, but I do have one thing to say: Don't play Isar's cross. Seriously. There's not enough room for proper time-of-day flow. You're right not to commit a Drake army to a fight with the Undead at night; it's suicide. I play Isar's cross. It's fast and furious, with most of ...

Re: how to get *really* good at Wesnoth...

I saw this thread, saw who posted it, and knew it was going to be something good. I'd add an addendum to number one. Prefer watching games live to watching replays. Discuss them with the other observers. Ask questions if you don't understand why a player made or didn't make a move. The answers may ...

Re: Continuous attacks till a unit is dead?

Yes, factor that into a strategy, but keep in mind that only one unit in default has that attack. It's level 2 does too, but I'm counting that as one. And, also keep in mind that the factions are balanced. The above post mentions that the Knalgans faction has many advantages, but just keep in mind ...

how to get *really* good at Wesnoth...

It took me about a year to get what I would consider "good" at Wesnoth, and about 2 years to get what most people would consider to be "very good" at Wesnoth... playing on average 3-4 games a day. I'm almost ashamed to admit that number... :oops: But let's face it, Wesnoth *is* an awesome game! :D A...

Re: Continuous attacks till a unit is dead?

Thanks so much. Its a nasty little skill that I wont soon forget :twisted: Javadave... you will find, the more you play Wesnoth, that the Knalgans are pretty much the best "specialist" faction. In other words, their units are the best at their respective roles. I have played and beaten top-ranked L...

Re: another topic about drakes! (since we don't have enough!)

7) If fighting the Undead, make sure you attack Dark Adepts with your Burners. Adepts are a vital part of the Undead army and should be swarmed whenever possible. Yes! OMG, how could I have forgotten that? :oops: Gambit- you are quite right. Quick, question, though... how many of the tips did it ta...

another topic about drakes! (since we don't have enough!)

I just wanted to compile a list of strategies and tactics that I've accrued over my many games on Wesnoth that has made me one of the greatest drake players of ALL time . Without further ado, here they are: 1) Recruit ONLY drakes! You heard me. Saurians are for noobs. Doesn't matter which faction yo...

should lev 2 Gryphs have Skirm ability?

My brother and I were discussing gryphons recently, and he was saying that the level 2 gryph is probably his #1 candidate for crappiest level-up. They don't get that much more HP, don't do very much more damage, and don't get more strikes. So... I raise the question, should level 2 gryphs get skirmi...

Re: Cav + mage vs Undead, OP

I have discovered a new strategy that is very effective against undead when you are playing as loyalist. It involves only recruiting Cavelrymen and Mages. Overall the Mages are used to punch through villages or kill ghouls while cav are used for everything else. Strenghts of this strategy: Undead h...
