I have a map that seems Drake-biased

Hello Wesnothians, I am trying to learn Wesnoth map-making. I have created a map entitled the "Bicameral Swamp"--the idea being that it is a swamp-heavy environment (obviously); but also, there is the idea that there should be a lot of back-and-forth movement between the central river and the flanks...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

I never really liked the Orcish Crossbowman for some reason. He levels quickly, but he's not as good the Warrior most of the time--plus, archers from other factions get bigger bonuses on leveling (a.k.a the Longbowman). Clearly you haven't been fighting enough wose and ghosts. Fire arrows are a bea...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

In alternate era, TBS decided to just nerf their hp so that adepts are more effective It was -10% cold damage btw, similar effect but doesn't affect other matchups much. More on topic, I'd probably go with the bowman as the least useful lvl 1 as well. For lvl 2s, I'd probably go with the trapper. T...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

I vote for bowman as worst unit. Coffee, to prove my point I challenge you to a match in which I recruit only ghosts and you recruit only bowmen :p ... footpad should switch nerf on melee to nerf on ranged instead ... I guess it is some serious necromancy on my part but I favor the change proposed ...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

The "Great" Mage. The only thing great about him is the amount of micromanagement needed to get one. :mrgreen: The "Mage Magister" unit in Delfador's Memoirs has to be exempted though: he does 16:4 magical ranged, 14:2 magical melee (with staff of power), has 6 movement hexes, 65HP, Leadership (at ...

Re: Is this map balanced?

A few comments: Preliminary: -This is what the multiplayer development section of the forum is for not really the strategy section. -I don't know why you couldn't attach the map as I don't know what you tried. -Don't bother with the AI testing. It will tell you pretty much nothing about whether or ...

Is this map balanced?

Hey guys, I seem to have found a propensity for designing maps. Now, bear in mind I'm pretty new at this--but is this map balanced? I'd love to hear some tips from you guys. And yes, I've checked out the guides available. I've also attached some replays with AI players to showcase it. EDIT: I can up...

Re: [AI] Knalgan AI fights terribly in some circumstances

This is a well-known problem, and a lot of work has been done on the AI's recruitment strategy in 1.11. It should be a lot better in 1.12. Ah! Glad to hear it. In that case, I shall have to wait and see the next version. If you have any suggestions for my gameplay on that scenario, I'd be happy to ...

Re: Units you dread fighting against

I personally dread fighting Gryphons and Nightgaunts in campaigns. I find Lancers and Halbedeers to be quite annoying as well. Then again, on MP, I find Gryphons a joke. They're expensive for your enemy, and you'd think they'd make great assassins, but two-hits means more often than not that they fa...

[AI] Knalgan AI fights terribly in some circumstances

Don’t get me wrong: I think the current Wesnoth AI is pretty good, as these things go. It can generally be assumed that it will put up a decent fight, and can even challenge experienced players with enough gold and resources. However, there are certain instances in which the AI performance is terrib...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

The fish hunter i picked elves on weldyn to look for myself if theres something i might have overlooked by saying the hunter is a weak unit. this is the result: two times i could not place my hunter on a better field than 50% (or else i got attacked melee by other units) and then 3 nagini hunted on...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

Well I have a bias against level 0 units because of them having such little health and no ZoC. It's difficult to say though. Goblin Spearman has a good attack, Walking Corpse has plague. However, I probably still say the walking corpse. To use plague you have to get kills, thus feeding it XP. At le...
