Re: Dunefolk Rework - Unit Descriptions

Piracy I think would work better as a campaign element - maybe have a scenario where the Dunefolk + Naga allies are having to deal with Naga pirates, for example. It doesn't seem unrealistic that there would be Naga pirates, but having that as a core aspect of their units seems out of place to me. ...

I agree with gype's suggestion. Sounds good to me.

Re: Main Factions Balance

I would venture so far as to say that Hejnewar is more qualified than you are to lead a balancing project. Granted, Hejnewar may not have as good an understanding of the game as you do, and his approach to balancing may be flawed at times - but he is able to listen to criticism. He is able to enter...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I dont owe you anything. I could go over a long list of what you have trouble understanding, but id rather take it to pms if you want to talk more as this is getting rather personal. Yeah, you don't owe me anything. But community is something different. You can do with your era whatever you want. B...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I think you have trouble with understanding. All of that are opinions not facts and I want to see facts. Opinions might be important but only if you have something to back it up. Funny: These are not even good convincing opinions but some random one liners without context. One replay means nothing u...

Re: Main Factions Balance

What is this claim based on? Years and years of playing the game at a high level as well as speaking to others that played at a high level as well. This is not a statement that requires such in-depth analysis and proof. It is common knowledge among the best players in the game. I'm speechless. Firs...

Re: Main Factions Balance

So if you really think that removing healthy makes dwarves better, then why at leats 3 other traits are better than healthy? And are they better in every case on every dwarf unit? If we considered two of these traits to be worse than healthy, then that would mean that leaving healthy might be good b...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I understand your concerns, and some of them might hold up. That is why the first version of the Ladder Era will be a test version to see how it goes. Give me your informed opinion after you have experienced the changes and I will listen. It sounds like you didnt play all those years ago at Wesnoth...

Re: Main Factions Balance

Little miscommunication here. Hardy would be something that all Dwarves have and would not take up a trait spot. Healthy is already a mostly useless trait in most matchups. When it was introduced to the game it nerfed Dwarves heavily. The goal here is to make those fat 4mp dudes better. Hmm then th...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I dont play ladder. I have no elo. I like ladder becouse its fun to watch. It seems that sometimes its better to not be a part of something at all and you really doesn't need to ba a part of ladder to play this game on high level, playing custom games for example with good or pro players can also ma...

Re: Main Factions Balance

If you have questions or clarifications, I’m willing to answer it if I can. I'm a bit short on time so i can't respond to each and every issue properly. It seems to me that you are more than balance seeking knowledge. If that is the case then not many things that I said really applies. They’re are ...

Re: Main Factions Balance

I know that i can access that data but going thru let's say 1500 replays manually is not for me as well Write a script to parse savefiles and extract the information you want. I will pass on that. It was more of a proposal of a solution. Maybe if i was convinced that this is the best approach, its ...

Re: Main Factions Balance

Yeah, if a player chooses to play hodor and loses, that's the same as any bad strategy, sure. I was thinking, however, of matches where the players agreed before the match that they should play hodor. At that point they aren't actually playing the default era any more, and even if it turns out thei...
