Re: New Player

Progressing slowly still but enjoying it. Crossroads was fun, held back and broke the enemy lines then rushed to take the objective in turn 20 or so, leveled the Elvish Hero to Champion, Elvish Rider to Outrider, White Mage to Mage of Light, Shaman to Druid and a new Thief to Rogue here. List going ...

Re: New Player

I've definitely found that having a decent balance of units is essential, as is reading the terrain and trying to anticipate the AI moves; more so than in most strategy games where one can more often than not force their way through and rely on high level units only. I found the mermen units were ex...

Re: New Player

Siege of Elensefar is one of the most difficult scenarios of HttT and as said before, losing leveled units is not a problem, just try to level at least as many or, in an especially difficult scenario, compensate in the next.

Re: New Player

The difficulty levels are aimed to be challenging to the level of player suggested by the name. Play through at beginner level first. Ah ...

I find that for me playing any type of turn based strategy games especially with a hex map on easy to be just that, way too easy and I tend to then play on auto pilot. Played The Elves Besiege...

Re: How did you find out about Wesnoth?

I only recently found out about the game, less than a fortnight ago. A link was in the signature on one of the forums I belong to, I think it was my ISP one.
