Re: Is Wesnoth mainly luck and not skill-based?

I'd describe it like this: If your opponent is playing well and you aren't, your odds of winning are minuscule but exist. If both players are playing well, there is still plenty of opportunity for one to play better and have higher odds of winning (though he may still lose). If you are sufficiently ...

Re: Knalgan vs Loyalists

The problem Krogen is describing is one of control rather than strictly being a matter of power or even strictly offense. It's not even that knalgans cannot attack loyalists under the right conditions, it's that when both players are playing well, the knalgan can never expect to be in position to cr...

Re: Non-random Wesnoth : applying the mean effect

If you think that removing the randomness does not affect the balance, you do not understand the game. There are many things in the game whose strength is tempered by risk or somewhat weak but tempered by reliability. If you remove the risk, it fundamentally changes the balance of these capabilities...

Re: Multiplayer Replay Analysis

As a forenote: I have never played with the blind pick mod. I assume that it’s one that lets you choose your faction and leader without your opponent getting to see it. As a second forenote, it is genuinely a lot easier to learn from loses than successes. Turn 1: No Comment Turn 2: This village grab...

Re: Siege of Elensefar Starting Gold

I normally go by land just because of the gold.

The amount of gold I get there varies but I aim to have at least 300 gold.

Re: Possible factions in Fiery Cave scenarios?

--Dark Elves (by extension if you can find some deep variant of the dwarves they'd be a great fit) --Imps/Daemons, something similar to a Balrog for bonus points --Monstrous Salamander (a specific type of cave critter that should be there) --Ancient Constructs, in particular golems or colossus of br...

Re: Multiplayer Replay Analysis

Turn 1: For knowing what your opponent is playing your opening looks fine. Perhaps each of you recruited one more scout than may have been strictly necessary (particularly you as player 1) but ghosts have their uses in this matchup. Turn 2: Normally I don’t favor ghouls in this matchup unless you’re...

Re: Are there more basic Factions?

Creating a new era for the purpose you describe would not be at all difficult but it cannot be done in the map editor.

Ravana: You know, I actually don't remember the name of that specific book however I do remember the name of the original book in that set. The name of the original book is "What is the Name of this Book" and it has sequels. If you find it and can hunt down everything else by that author y...

Re: Puzzle challenges!

Your answer is actually incorrect. There's a way to always get the answer within 3 questions. To give a hint, I will tell you that the vast majority of the information given (although it would be useful in a typical knights and knaves), is actually mostly irrelevant to the easiest way to solve this...

If you're looking for an interesting one, there's one I remember reading in a book that was quite fun though I don't remember the answer. There were actually many of this style of question in the book of which this was but one however this is the one that stuck with me for some reason. >As a note I'...

Re: A very difficult puzzle

You seem to be ignoring the past couple posts. Also, changing rules isn't solving the problem it's just creating a slightly different one. I'm just going to note, that there are mathematical ways to solve these types of things and if you know those methods it'd be really hard to make a puzzle that's...

Re: A very difficult puzzle

Just to confirm, the rules are as follows: -You can toggle any of the switches. -If you toggle a switch that isn't in the center you also toggle the center and the opposite switch. -The center is conditional, if you toggle it while it's on it toggles one set of 4 switches and if you toggle it while ...

Re: I know someone will say it's easy... Siege of Elensefar.

Oh yes, I have tried using lower level recruits, I still end up in the negative income, negative gold situation. Maybe the Luck may work out differently eventually but they just die quicker without leaders. When you say do not put so much emphasis on higher level unit, yet the point of the game sho...
