*sigh*

One of you is finally going to push this too far and bring the wrath of the capitalist copyright system down upon our heads, I know it.

...Dude! You fixed your first post by calling the Drake Burner the worst ranged unit?! That's my favorite Drake unit, really.

I wasn't saying it sucks in terms of balance, necessarily, although there might be issues with that. It's just so horribly cramped that it's really not a fun map to play. *shrug*

Indeed. And a little bit of melee damage is better than none; a melee unit with 1 health left would think twice about attacking a Mage, but wouldn't hesitate to slaughter the defenseless Adept.

Well, since you're retyping it, care to fix the maps? I've been looking at Den of Onis and it, err, sucks.

Ulfserkers have a good shot at day, though if I am going to do that I would weaken the ghost first. ...What, down to 2 health? I've never seen an Ulfserker win against a Ghost. Ever. Ghosts are definitely annoying for Knalgans, but Footpads tend to do the trick for me. Attack 'em with ranged and yo...

Since you mentioned a specific map, let's analyze fighting tactics on that one. If I were a Drake on Blitz fighting against a Spearman- or Horseman-obsessed enemy, I'd go with Burners and Augurs on one side to progress offensively, while merely holding the line on the other side using Skirmishers an...

...Dude, you might wanna rethink your "Worst Ranged" choice. I don't think that counts, or else it ties with a few other units. Like trolls or your "Worst Melee" choice. You forgot to add to the Bat: "As a level 0 unit, it also lacks a Zone of Control, so its great movement doesn't even allow it to ...

I have a testing suggestion: have the computers play both sides, but take over for the purpose of recruitment. Recruit the "unbalanced" units for one side and let the other side choose what it wants -- or let an experienced observing player choose the other side's units -- and then let the computers...

Re: In a Nutshell

Playing as the Undead, I could pretty much whore [ghosts] out and have a very good shot at winning. Backed up by a few melee skeletons to kill those pesky mages and orc bowmen, Ghosts can handle just about anything else, often healing more damage than they sustain. Agreed. They're awesome units, Gh...

Mmm. the ghost is really a interesting idea. I'd like to have a Ghost on my army whitout doubt.. but I don't know if he is a *scout* unit. specially since the Undead have Bats (which sucks!). Yes. Bats aren't that good, as you said. Thus, I consider the Ghost to be the real Undead scout unit. Let s...

They're thinking of lots of RTSs in which that happens.

I don't see much purpose in it either except for people to find a new way to make a bunch of annoying messages pop up all over the place. Labels can be bad enough already, although luckily you can mass-clear them.

Worked. Yeah, this does seem a bit unbalanced towards low-cost unit spam, since now you can also afford to have a bigger list of such low-cost units and therefore greater versatility. Walking Corpse + Goblin Spearman and BAM, you've got both impact and pierce damage to spam. A single leader and you ...

Small's a'right if done right -- and I think most of your maps seem to do it right -- but the first one's a bit too small; you're just begging for a first-round leader assassination.
