Re: Acquiring Death Knights

All of these are not normally acquirable via recruiting or leveling. A campaign author could allow you to get them but afaik there are no such campaigns (even among user made ones). You could add [campaign] extra_defines=ENABLE_DEATH_KNIGHT to DiD's _main.cfg to get Death Knights. Invasion from the...

Re: Whatever happened to 1 vs. 1 ?

Try being GMT + 11

It's a pain in the backside to get home and be lucky to find even ONE 1 vs 1 game going during your evening :augh:

It's an even bigger pain to find that the rare 1 vs 1 is not a ladder game :annoyed:

Still, hopefully some time will free up, maybe.

Re: [engine] Players leaving - invite new ones

I think he means the server sending out an invite to the lobby at large in the event that a player leaves the game unexpectedly, asking anyone in the lobby whether they would like to join the game or not, rather than just hope an observer is watching so as to give control to.

Re: THoT - scenario 12 - help!

You can wear down both the gallery dwarves and at the dwarves at the chokepoint fights long enough to develop some magi very quickly If you have angarthing at level 3 (which would be greatly surprising if you did not), and some stalwarts (or maybe even guardsmen if you can find a decent defensive he...

Re: An idea about trolls

About trolls being useless vs Drakes: It may not be the best unit in this match up, but there are still several ways to end up with them anyway. If you need to defend a mountain you want a troll on it. They are also pretty useful vs saurians when there are some around. You can have a troll in your ...

Northerners, need help

Despite how simple people make playing this faction, I cannot seem to get my head around it at all. I really do not know where I'm going wrong with them, I go with the standard heavy push but it always seems to end in failure for me :annoyed: A replay should be below, to demonstrate my point. It was...

Re: How to play - Undeads vs Northeners - Huumy

I think you should also add at what ToD cycle should be attacking at as the Undead, this may seem obvious but I'd like to offer some opinion on this if I may for this particular match-up, as I believe it varies depending on being P1 or P2 For P1 -Begin to advance in the afternoon -Begin attacking at...

Re: Invasion from the Unknown: Strike on New Knalga

Well, I suppose I'll have to start again. Oh well. One further question, do the units you level up in IftU 1 carry over into IftU 2 assuming you actually complete IftU 1? You don't have to start over at all. Rather perhaps go back to the scenario where you first have access to adepts. Also your rec...

Re: Invasion from the Unknown: Strike on New Knalga

Hmm your starting gold seems rather poor, though I can't really remember and this could be due to playing on easy... The major problem looking at your recall list is that you've made a huge mistake in way too many elven units. The sharpshooter and non-loyal riders in particular I'm groaning at becau...

Re: How to play: Loyalists vs. Northerners

Sorry have to disagree there, given that there will still be plenty of targets for a 1hp mage to blast, that if it does lose hp to poison when killing an assassin, that's simply not good enough when it can still attack without fear of retaliation. That is not to say the horseman isn't a very powerf...

Re: How to play: Loyalists vs. Northerners

How is a horseman supposed to retreat after a failed charge? A mage will die whether it's poisoned or not if your opponent can reach it. It is easy for a northerner to send fresh units against a horseman that won't die in retaliation. If I remeber correctly the retaliation by an assasin is 10-14 wh...

Re: How to play: Loyalists vs. Northerners

I think you are somewhat wrong on the threat of the orcish archer in this match-up. Unless you have recruited HI, orcish archers are very poor, requiring 6/6 attacks at night to take down a horseman/cavalry, and resilient+(intelligent or strong) cavalry/horseman cannot be killed by 2 archers even at...

Re: How to play: Loyalists vs. Rebels

I disagree. Cavalry are rather valuable in this match-up as other than vs archers, they are a serious pest to the rebel force, with blade and impact resist, and easily outrun the archer, or better yet lure archers into the open where they can be easily butchered. Their speed is a great asset too as ...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

eyerouge, wesnoth is not a skill-based game. "skill" in wesnoth is really skill in thinking up moves, which is really just the ability to remember many possible consequences. if player skill is the deciding factor in most games, that's just an indicator of how poor the competitive playing field is ...
