Re: Simyr

There is a way to get Simyr reliably: use 3 Elvish Rangers for assassination of the orc leader. First attack on turn 8 and finish on turn 9: 2 turns * 3 units * 7-4 (8-4 if dextrous) vs. 58 HP (60% defense). 2 Elvish Rangers could be sufficient with a bit luck. Now the hard part is to get 3 Elvish R...

SotBE: The Human Attack, Wesnoth 1.11.13, HARD

I think the rebalancing of this scenario has failed (or I’m not good enough). I faced two major problems: The sheer (possible) amount of units with charge attacks (Lancers, Knights (and Horseman)) which are able to kill even my healthiest units in a single turn. The suicidal behavior of the allied l...

Re: „Instruct ally“, Wesnoth 1.11.13

I'd say remove the option to change allies behavior or objective if the player can't make use of it or won't recognize any difference in the AI's play style.

„Instruct ally“, Wesnoth 1.11.13

I can’t make good use of „Instruct ally“ (while playtesting SotBE). E.g. in „Back Home“ I told an allied leader „to be more defensive“. Then he (Orcish Warlord, HP 78) left his keep, moved onto snow to attack 2 Swordsmen and attacked one of them with his ranged attack. But if all of their attacks (8...

Re: Stuck on SotBE:Civil War

I'd say the turn limit is OK but increase gold (+50?). This gives the option to play like I did (and afford a bit of bad luck or just to train some rookies) or to play with a southern strike force. I don't know if this would make medium difficulty too easy. If the next scenario is unwinnable without...

i just won the scenario in my play through (Nightmare; 1.11.13). The replay is in the mainline feedback thread: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?p=570453#p570453 My Gold: 382.
