Re: AI ethic: use a 1HP unit to do suicidal attack

the point 'even if it win, I'll kill it in the next turn. ' is valid. no doubt it is too demanding to expect AI to consider more than one step. Let us calculate... In each strike - counter strike round: chance that the ranger is dead after strike by dragoon: 40% chance that the dragoon is dead afte...

Re: [engine] Group Turns Idea

i think no one will object to add this feature *as an optional feature* for people to test, just no one has time to do so. Eh, wrong. There are many technical problems with this idea. As presented, it is actually impossible. so you are saying such feature is too difficult to be implemented in the c...

Re: [engine] Group Turns Idea

the wait time is a problem. i guess at the beginning this game wasn't designed for multi-player. i think no one will object to add this feature *as an optional feature* for people to test, just no one has time to do so.

AI ethic: use a 1HP unit to do suicidal attack

one of the AI rules as I observed is that when they can kill a unit, they are very likely to attack it, even if there is a chance they will get killed in the attack. I have no complain about this as it creates more surprise that make the game not so easy, such as when I expose a unit to 2 attacker t...

Re: The Uselessness of the Merman Spearman

first, i think Netcaster is way more useful than Spearman, too. i wouldn't say Netcaster is always better or Spearman is broken as there could be scenarios that Spearman is useful. e.g. in player-vs-AI survival games like World Conquest, one of the possible strategy against drake is to build sea pie...

Re: logic for multiple reactionary attacks???

won't that most times seem illogical and unfair? were multiple reactionary attacks incorporated just for it's gameplay "value"? or is there another reason for reactionary attacks that would make sense at "face-value"? this game works quite well (balanced, and playable) with the current retaliation ...

Re: A gentle introduction to multiplayer?

After playing multiplayer for almost a month, there are still some finer points of etiquette that I'm not totally clear on. For example, what's the proper protocol when you think you're going to lose, and you want to surrender? Should you just play to the end anyways? Is it okay to say "gg I surren...

Re: android support

I don't know Java very well, so I'm not much help. Though, I would be so ecstatic if a Wesnoth port reared its head. I would buy it even if you charged $50 dollars for it. indeed, i'm curious what approach the guys who claimed to be porting Wesnoth to Android use. Android is a derived from Linux an...

I must be doing something wrong Salade, because every time I have knalgans as allies, I get darvish fighters as new recruit on map 3 and just recruit them witout take care of what enemy I am facing :P And just a little advise about a mistake I see too often: Form line on the best terrain and let en...

Re: Cheating, difficulty, and a challenge to expert players.

I think reload isn't cheating for most cases. One of the exceptions is if you save and reload intended to check certain information that is not intended to reveal to you, as it is similar to run in debug mode and execute a command that remove the shroud (idk if there is such a command, just an examp...

Re: I think I gonna give up....

I can't recommend playing the campaigns as a way to improve your multiplayer Wesnoth, because playing against an AI, especially in a campaign setting, is nothing like playing against another human. obviously, good at playing against AI doesn't mean good at playing against other human players. not s...

Re: The most overused and the most underused faction

My favourite factions are elves and undead, although when playing WC-NM by myself I will use Loyalists, Elves, and Undead, so I suppose for me they are my overused factions. My least favourite (and therefore least used) faction are the drakes. I hate their low defenses, despite their extremely pote...
