Couldn't a map maker just code teleports on either side?

Re: Modification in level 1 Mages

It's 5-4. However the Mage does more damage, has a better damage type, and has magical, which is very powerful. Oh dear. Last time I played HttT and actually looked at them they were 4-4. Not cost effective at lvl 1?? That's not the point! The point is that it levels to become incredibly powerful a...

The real trick is to finish Valley of Statues with lots of gold (200-300), so that you can just recall a bunch of powerful units. High level mages, grand knights, and level 3 elves are pretty nice here. Well.. I have. I've even had $397 in the start of RtW. But recruiting "a bunch of powerful units...

Kind of on the same topic: would it be possible to just have labels not cover units? This becomes a problem even if you are using the labels constructively (try playing on a random map and surrounding a village with units, and you'll probably see what I'm talking about).

I think a lot of people find the Loyalists to be terrible because they AI plays so poorly with them. This is because the AI almost always spends all its money on cavalry men on the first turn. Then it grabs a few villages, but, rather than scouting more and waiting for an advantage, they seem to att...

Huh? If your horseman charges and misses, the enemy deals out the damage listed on the combat screen. Delay Fog/Shroud Updates is your friend, people I mean if the archer survives - in that case, he'll used his ranged attack next turn. Because the horseman has no ranged attack, it doesn't display t...

this would also be useful with units that have no ranged attack. often, I'd like to see how much damage a horseman will take in retaliation if the unit he's attacking survives, but I can't even use EP's original method to check this.

I believe it's pretty much been stated that the Wesnoth system is feature complete, and will not contain any new ideas like this. This is also a particularly bad time for new traits, as it requires rebalancing every unit and every campaign, and right now the developers are trying to push for a 1.0 r...

I must say I've reviewed my opinion of horsemen. I've just reached "Test of Clans" and for once, my usual small elite group of units can not cut it. They can simply not hold enough villages to prevent the 4 bad guys from taking them out one after another with mounted units en masse . I have to go b...

With 0.8.7 HttT seems to have become much harder on Hard, with huge swings in damage away from expected values (eg. 50% over EV for both dealt and taken over several scenarios). It's probably just me having a rough time with the random number generator, or with AI improvements from 0.8.5, but save/...

Like Gafgarion said, there is too much flux in the amount of daily downloads. Yes, there are a lot of downloads right now, but 0.8.7 was just released, so all of us are updating. Give it a few weeks and the downloads will be down signifigantly.

In multiplayer, it's pretty difficult to get a bunch of healers with the cures ability.

An assassin or ghoul can only poison one unit per turn. If your opponent is using a lot of poisonous units, you could either recruit units with high amounts of hit points, so that they can live long enough to heal, or recruit a ton of level 0 units, so that you still have plenty of unpoisoned units ...

Orcish Assassins have better defense, don't they?
