Re: Freaken Zombies everywhere

There were only 2 games, I used zombies: In the first one, I had 8 gold left at dusk and about to throw my leader into the final battle. That zombie never reached the front line though. In the second one I pushed ahead at night, fall back at day, while Loyalists were trying to hunt my skeletons down...

Re: Tips for a new player

which faction is the strongest/weakest in your opinion? Which one is the most fun to play? This is a rhetorical question, I suppose.

(Yes, I read and I understood your explanation. :) ) The crucial fact here is the...

Re: Faction/leader choices - random?

Let me tell you a story about a fight I had yesterday. I chose random/random, he chose Elves/druid on Cynsauns Battlefield. I ended up with Loyalists. Now I knew, that he was well equipped with ranged attacks, quick units and even sea hunters. I figured, he would make use of his druid and advance fa...
