Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 17 - Human Horde

1.11.15, medium difficulty seems I'm done here, can't force myself into playing the last two maps. Hordes of lancers is not the thing I'm getting fun of fighting against the sc17 might be ok for my taste if there were less lancers... the sc18 seems an overkill for me. overall it's a great campaign, ...

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 16 - Coward

1.11.15, medium difficulty, more than 300gp b/c I edited the prev scenario 1) the camp location looks odd b/c the map border is too close... why I'm not given at least a few hexes more to the east? Is it a world edge there? :) It's a Spring scenario, expand the map border few hexes to the east, fill...

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 15 - Civil War

good map, but what a strange scenario settings! Needs serious changes IMO 1.11.15, medium difficulty, 383 gp 1) it's very hard, like 9/10: I tried to stay in the keep and defend, but was short by ~6 turns to finish off the leaders and reach the signpost. So the only viable strategy is as Theron and ...

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 11 - Clash of Armies

1.11.15, medium difficulty 7-to-8 out of 10 perceived difficulty, I knew what to expect. I should have spent less gold for flank recruitment if I knew the next scenario will require all the gold I can get. This map is great and very fun but becomes monotone in the second half, thus replaying it for ...

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 12 - Giving Some Back

replay attached, two things: 1) I increased turn limit to 24 turns, too much IMO. As I said above 20-22 turns looks optimal for me (say 20 for nightmare, 21 for medium and 22 for easy). I watched Maiklas' replay and despite he was lucky it was pretty close to a loss b/c of time limit. 2) my installa...

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 13 - Dwarvish Stand

1.11.15, medium difficulty

feels like 6/10 difficulty rate, and "6" is b/c of frozen terrain. Very easy map compared to previous one, that's good. (But probably I managed to get extra starting gold b/c I cheated in the prev scenario)

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 12 - Giving Some Back

1.11.15, medium difficulty, minimum starting gold (was not aware I had to accumulate gold in prev map) For me it was impossible to win w/o reloads! When I understood this fact, it was too annoying to replay "Clash of armies" for gold and then restart this map from scratch. I hate lancers, unbelievab...

Re: Scenario Review: SotBE 6 - Black Flag

1.11.15
campaign difficulty is one level less than the top
scenario difficulty is like 8

don't see what can I add to previous commenters, the scenario is great. I just don't get how can I destroy a ship before it's unloaded :roll:

The campaign goes great so far

I'm sure the NR has a good potential, and I'm looking forward to play the redesigned version in the future ;)

Re: Scenario Review: NR 4 - Clearing the Mines

1.11.15, medium difficulty I had almost 1000gp, but after watching Maiklas' replay lost all the interest... somehow it makes me bored - a ton of money and a ton of enemies. Btw I seriously think this 80% gold transfer between scenarios hurts the balance of the game. Make it 40%, and reduce AI gold a...

Re: Scenario Review: NR 3 - To the Mines

1.11.15, medium difficulty

compared to the previous map, this one is plain and easy enough to say I was disappointed.

Re: Scenario Review: NR 2 - Infested Caves

1.11.15, medium difficulty

insanely hard map. After a few restarts I realized the way to beat it, but save/loaded quite a number of times.

I delayed the victory till the last turn to gain max xp and gold.

Re: Scenario Review: SoF 9 - Caverns of Flame

Played this campaign with 1.11.15, one level less than top difficulty

Overall impressions for the _whole campaign_:
+ interesting plot
+ very good maps
+ adequate difficulty
- way too much talks for may taste, and a lot of them feel silly TBH

Thanks!
