How do you beat scenario 4? The allied leader always makes a suicide charge to attack the necromancer, and ends up in the water on turn 5 or so, surrounded by undead. I've just barely started evolving my attack, and the computer AI loses the game for me. Suggestions?

There's a long way to go after the Pursuit. The trickiest part of Pursuit is knowing that you need to break into the Dungeon first in order to rescue the prisoners, and then figuring out how to break through the defenses on the E and W sides, which are hard. It's a very touchy, luck based level with...

1. Hard 1.1.7 2. 9 - I had to restart multiple times. Undead are fierce in caves, liches are hard to kill with Royal Guardsmen and Swordsmen, and the Mage of Light doesn't move fast enough to be everywhere he needs to be. Plus, those damned Spectres and Wraiths picking off anything weak. At least th...

1. Hard 1.1.7 2. 5 - a little tricky but it's not like there's a lot of options 3. Very clear 4. I'm not exactly understanding why the two parties split up, but whatever. And was there something to do with the Ogre? I couldn't tell. It didn't seem to want to attack, so I ignored it for most of the s...

1. Hard 1.1.7 2. 5 - played it through in one pass, I think, but with some sweat. 3. Clear enough. 4. I understood what was going on. 5. I was never sure where I needed to be going, so my forces spent a lot of their time scattered all over the map. Having a few Elvish Scouts would have been a big he...

1. Hard, 1.1.7 2. 4, it was a straightforward "kill everything on the road". Bone archers were a bit scary, but that was it. 3. Objectives were clear. There should be a label or symbol showing the destination village, though. 4. Interesting enough. 5. No major challenges 6. 7 - I might replay it som...

1.

Sorry, I know you're busy with SoBE, and I didn't mean to nag. Just feeling frustrated that I can't complete the final battle of the campaign.

I like the large battles, to an extent. The Eastern Flank was about as a large as a battle should be, though. It took about 15 minutes per turn for me to play that. It was a little dull in parts, but bearable. Showdown is just ridiculous. Each game turn would go something like: 2 minutes: retreat po...

If you're going to redo Showdown, could you reduce the amount of gold involved? I'm playing it on Medium and each Orc lord recruits full castles for 7 turns. There's over 400 units involved in the battle! My computer is an Athlon 64 3000+ and a gig of memory, and it still takes the computer 45+ minu...

(1) Hard (aka Normal?) in 1.1.15 (2) 4 - had to replay it once because I didn't realize the importance of the river village. (3) 8 (4) 6 (5) Balancing the need to bring the army commander forward with keeping reinforcements flowing. (6) 7 - it wasn't anything special, but it was a good game. (7) Mak...

Thieves and dwarves are good. Wizards and archers are bad.

Gryphons are helpful if you have a lot of money.

If you can keep the dwarf beserkers alive, it's just too easy for them to destroy the mages.

I do like the new bridge, so that it's possible to go around. In the early versions, you had to pass both wizards' keeps and killing them was the best plan.
