Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

i find it curious that merman hunters who wield spears graduate into netcasters who wield club and net. one would expect them to start with one or the other in a weaker form, or continue with spears and get faster or stealthier or acquire one new weapon at most between levels. It makes sense if you...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

I'm quite fond of Netcasters, depending on the scenario they're swell to have. And at least the Elvish fish has both melee and ranged attack, unlike the even more useless human fish. I personally like strong melee over weak melee and ranged. It's useless to try duel anything with the elf fishes. Th...

Re: Favorite multiplayer unit per type(melee, magical, cav,

Melee- Orcish grunt. Lot of HP, mediocre defense, good movement, cheap. Nothing fancy only raw power. Ranged- Elvish archer. Fast, reliable, great defensive unit. Scout- Footpad. Because it's so hard to kill. Magical- Saurian augur. Fast, 3 attacks, easy to level, stops poison, good defense, cheap. ...

Re: How to play Knalgan?

I've recently started playing Battle for Wesnoth after a couple years. I find playing Knalgan fun, but I don't really have much experience with them, as before I took that hiatus, I played things like Rebels and Loyalists. I know that Knalgan's dwarf units have very low movement, and I take care to...

Re: Dwarvish Guardsman

I think stalwart is underpowered relative to the level 2 dwarvish fisghter. The fighter goes from 38HP to 59HP (21HP increase) where guardsman goes from 42 to 54 (12HP increase). Also fighter physical resistances goes from 20 to 30, why is this? Anyway I don't think guardsman relative to atleast fig...

Re: Zombie attack type

its also true that the zombies are the undead's unit with the highest impact, but I don't think that changing the type would affect much the game balance, undeads have already the adepts that aregreat at killing heavy infantry (rchers are good too for that) I don't think you made good enough of a p...

Re: Dwarvish guardsmen (in 1 vs 1)

I see a trend of reducing defense while increasing attack. I think after decreasing their resistances they got steadfast (doubling their resistance in defense) also note the increased HP... So I'm not so sure of the trend of decreasing it defensive abilities. Also one possible reason for increasing...

Re: Tiny help with Drakes

The drake fighter is cheaper and faster clasher, without the pierce resistance and with option to do pierce damage. So basically the fighter is just your second option for melee. The optimal ratio for fighters/clashers depends on the map, your playstyle, your opponent's playstyle and recruits. The b...

Re: Ghosts - I only seem to get ghosts

I guess it depends who you are playing. If you are playing vs AI 1v1 spamming ghost sounds like good idea if you would try the same vs any decent human player then you face more recruit units that are good vs ghosts. Try going only ghosts when you're opponent is going mainly thiefs, mages, orc arche...

Re: Official new ladder thread

Technically the previous ladder is old when compared to this new ladder. Tho I don't how much time you need before you can call a ladder system build for wesnoth an old ladder? Is there maybe an official statement by the devs or some1 in charge, how long before a ladder can be called an old one and ...

Re: Freaken Zombies everywhere

although the question still arises...When do you actually use them as oppose to something else... I usually recruit one of them with my bigger army and most of the time I find very useful. Sometimes it's more useful to spawn extra zombie on the hex where enemy unit was instead of leaving it empty (...
