Re: Wesnoth strategy puzzles

I think the solution to the second one now goes If the guy is at 10, the wolf can never reach, but you probably then want to at least attack with the grunt. So, grunt tries to go 3, if he meets the guy then wolf can go around further south. If the grunt doesn't see anyone, the wolf tries to go SE-SE...

Re: Tips using the horseman in campaigns

and he needs to be fed kills to, often at the expense of the rest of the army. And despite taking all the precautions you can, he will inevitably screw up and take heavy retal, and will need to be healed. If you can afford to do all that for the sake of one unit, you don't need his help to begin wi...

Re: Let’s Play Invasion from the Unknown 2.0 (Parts I and II

I'm impressed you finished the campaign after losing two veterans so early - I found 22B really hard even with all my veterans alive! Haven't done the emperor fight, got a theory on how I might be able to do it but haven't got around to testing it. Will try one more time before reading your playthr...

Re: Let’s Play Invasion from the Unknown 2.0 (Parts I and II

I actually dislike the bottleneck camping tactic I'm afraid you haven't seen the last of it... (I for one actually got so fed up with this tactic that I lost two veterans to Elyssa's brutal leadership in 22A as a result: rushed her troops instead of falling back because I've had enough of being a c...

I'd love to see you do the last fight. Camping in narrow passages is nice but it won't work forever :)

Re: Invasion from the Unknown 2.0 RC 9 [Wesnoth 1.12]

The Moon Valley (on normal), the pink and black orcs really don't want to fight (present as of 1.99.8). (I mean 1.99.8, not a smiley). Is this intentional?

Re: Stuck on AtS:Outpost of Hell

I beat it on hard a year ago (version 0.9.1). Not before failing a couple of times, of course. However, I might have abused save/reload :oops:. Also, the replay fails on the 5th turn :x, so 1) I don't know what use it is for you; 2) now I'm not even sure if I actually beat the scenario, or just chea...

Re: After the Storm 0.9.1 [Wesnoth 1.10.x/1.11.2] (complete!

Great job, shadowmaster. I have played though this campaing not only for gameplay reasons, but more because of a good story, I started to sort of sympathize with the characters in the same way as when reading a book. Only one thing I would like to note, in "Destiny part 2" scenario (on hard) I manag...

Re: 1.10 and 1.11 SP Campaign - Bad Moon Rising

Part 1 is too difficult, if not impossible, on normal. During the first couple of scenarios you have to reload many times because with just 4 units at your disposal you're too susceptible to bad luck. One unlucky turn and you're dead. Those who don't reload but instead restart every time they loose,...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

As I said, I'm playing on hard.

I guess you also had one or two keeps powerful units, didn't you? Otherwise I don't see how you can win with only level-1 spam: you and the enemy have equal amount of units. but enemy has higher chance to kill.

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

But during their turn they will kill off level-1 spam faster than you can produce it.

Edit: your mage has 70% chance to kill an illusion, while it has 91% chance to kill your mage. On top of that, they spawn at a rate of 7 per turn while you can only recruit 6. So the math is clearly against you.

Re: Legend of the Invincibles

Chapter 7, "The last enemy" seems impossible on hard. You cannot reduce the amount of fake copies because they simply spawn faster then you can destroy them. When I tried my best to destroy the real one, I managed to get her below 400 HP by hitting her with all I have during 2 turns. But then it tur...

Re: Legend of the Invincibles (chapter 7 is out)

I tried on normal "from scratch" (not continuing from previous chapter). But it turned out to be way too difficult; for example, I lost my entire army in the second scenario, but was able to winish with just leaders. The next two scenarios were OK, but then I could not beat "Tundra" (too many enemie...
