Re: what is the sense of "ghosts"

Are there collections of MP replays out there we can investigate?

Re: Heir to the Throne rant/idea suggestion

Which is fine, though if that is the case, the whole Griffon Mt scene becomes a bit awkward, since griffons are supposed to be intelligent (or so I've been told). Basically, Konrad commits the same crimes as Ashevier at the Bay of Pearls (besides attempting to kill the monarch who also happens to b...

Re: Heir to the Throne rant/idea suggestion

A particularly good example was Isabella, the wife of English king Edward II. She and her lover, Roger Mortimer, staged an invasion of England and forced Edward (her own husband) to abdicate in favour of his heir, their son, Edward III. Then she ruled as his regent with Mortimer at her side, and qu...

Re: Siege of Elensefar Too Hard

No "possibly" about it. Isle of the dead is, until you get the hang of it, probably a harder scenario than Elensefar. I had to replay Isle of the Dead only once before I succeeded, and Siege of Elensefar about 10 times. I think I had to replay The Elves Besieged almost as much as Siege of Elensefar...

Re: Siege of Elensefar Too Hard

I recently did a fairly in depth exploration of this level with the support of some veteran players. Check it out:

Re: Siege of Elensefar (aka MYOB Skeletons!) Help is required!

Or just playing on a lower difficulty level. No shame in playing a lower level without saveloading. I find it more rewarding than playing the hardest and having to save/load (looking at YOU, northern rebirth several levels in :P. That's where it becomes too taxing for me xD). I want lots of high le...

Re: Siege of Elensefar (aka MYOB Skeletons!) Help is required!

I finally beat the accursed level. I saveloaded a zillion times, but I don't mind doing that. I find this game too frustrating without save loading. I also learned a lot. It seems careful analysis of where each enemy can move next turn is important, as is having a lot of firepower so you can kill tw...

Re: Siege of Elensefar (aka MYOB Skeletons!) Help is required!

Sol, why did you recruit Shamans instead of Fighters? You moved to the left on Turn 4, then engaged the front orc on Turn 5. You exposed Konrad to 6 attacks for 12 each. With his 40% Defense, there's a dangerously high chance that he might be killed! Did you reload your turns or were you just lucky?...

Re: Siege of Elensefar (aka MYOB Skeletons!) Help is required!

Sol, I see a few things. I see you heavily emphasized the Recall of Loyal units. I see that you sent an Outlaw across the moat to the island on the left. Some other replay I saw used an Elven Scout or Rider to do the same thing. Second, I note that the Orc doesn't seem to recruit that heavily. It mi...

I think you keep the start of the scenario even if you erase the replays.

Re: Siege of Elensefar (aka MYOB Skeletons!) Help is required!

Wow. You killed most of the Orcs by Turn 7 and apparently didn't lose many important units! How did you do it? I see you Recalled at least 8 units. That's 160 Gold. You also recruited a Shaman and a Merman. What sort of units did you recruit which didn't make it? Merman Warriors? Elvish Fighters?

I'm not willing to play up to that scenario just to prove a point.
Here you go! It's 1.4.7. You have 232 Gold and a Recall list of level 2's that emphasises Healing, Leadership and Anti-Undead.

Re: Siege of Elensefar (aka MYOB Skeletons!) Help is required!

Well I went back and checked BoP. I had 364 Gold at the beginning of that. I recruited 6 Elven Warriors, Recalled a Knight, a Druid, a Horseman and a Elven Fighter with a lot of exp, and a Mage and Elven Shaman with some exp. I had 169 Gold by the time I finished recruiting. Where did I go wrong? I ...
