Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

New Version: 2.0.3 on both stable and development addon servers.

Changes:
Jundi melee 6-3 -> 5-3
Naffat hp 28 -> 31

I could change more, but the jundi change is something I would like to try without mucking around with much else for now. Please, go forth and test! Let me know how it goes.

Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

Thanks for the great feedback TBS and others! Yes, there has been some resistance to even lightly nerfing the Jundi, mostly on concept: the idea of the faction is that Jundis are great and you want a lot of them, with some support units. At this point, I agree with you and I'm inclined to change the...

Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

Let me clarify that I am just trying to get feedback on the balance side of things, I'm not sure when, practically, adding them to mainline could happen. It should probably be noted that (as far as I recall) they were removed from mainline on 1.9.10 because we hit the feature freeze for 1.10 and the...

Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

While I await polished data (please send in the form of 3.5" floppies - thanks!), feel free to post a few thoughts on what tweaks you'd like to see for the khalifate. I'm happy to mess with it a bit and release it for another round of testing. As for other races... I could get behind changes, but it...

Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

Thanks Turuk, and yeah TBS that would be great! I'm happy to hop back on the horse and make some tweaks if there are folks out there to test it. Perhaps another tournament...? ;)

Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

Currently, #wesnoth-khalifate is quiet and I confess I have not been keeping up with anything that is happening anywhere else. In somewhat related news, I have another kid on the way (going to be 4!), and it seems like two steps forward and one step back for the past long while with the era. Every t...

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

I've started collecting the TAF Khalifate replays in first post the Khalifate thread, here. So far they are undefeated after a handful of games... time will tell if they are OP or if people just haven't figured out how to go after them yet. Or both... ;)

Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

I have started linking replays that contain a Khalifate side from the TAF (need Alternate Era + Khalifate Era to watch) in the first post of this thread.

Re: Alternate Era Version 2

Adding stuff is always fun, but I think TBS is doing a good job of trying to balance out fun vs. loads of additional rules. If something is very close to leadership but not quite leadership, then it may be fun to add it - but it also might not be good design. Keeping the number of rules and specials...

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

I dug up a replay from the archive of the Undertaker-KhoneFlakes game. Was pretty short. ;)

Undertaker: Did you go random there, or did you choose Khalifate?

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

Hi, I had 2 of my 4 games so far vs khalifate. Both my opponents ( khorne and Oook ) randomed as Khalifas. The Alternate + Khalifate Era seems to take care of that. #textdomain wesnoth-multiplayer #define RANDOM_SIDE [multiplayer_side] id=Random name= _"Random" image="units/random-dice.png" {MAGENT...

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

I talked to grrr, and it seems the RBY is not seeing khalifate as a faction when selecting random factions. Did all the people who used khalifate pick their faction, or did anyone get it as random so far?

Undertaker: I think it's just the turn1 autosave that you posted. Do you have another save with the whole game?

Re: Khalifate gameplay thread (feedback on balance and bugs)

Minor update to fix possible movetype conflicts with other eras.

Current version is now 2.0.2 on the stable addon server.

Also, there is a tournament testing out the Alternate Era and Khalifate Era together that is starting up now, and future tournaments planned after that one is done.

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

I'm looking forward to seeing some games! I updated the Khalifate era on the addon server to 2.0.2 recently (minor fix to make sure there won't be movetype issue conflicts with other eras). Please do try them out, or at least look at them! ;) Make sure to report any bugs in the Khalifate to me (foru...
