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

Anyhow, to get back on topic, I've found the Skeleton Archer to be a little useless to me. Yes, he has his uses, but I generally find the DA better. I always find myself spamming more archers than melee skeletons. Perhaps my fondness for the Rebel's ranged attacks has spoiled me, but against most u...

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

I find that tha Lieutenant's Leadership isn't very gud, myself. In normal games he ain't ever close enough to tha fightin, and in campaigns and defense-like games he getz out-leveled and useless pretty quick. White Mages or a gud Pikeman are better, cauze da one has healin that never gets outclasse...

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

The Worst unit in the default era is none other than the lieutenant. Its weak and low HP, I remember killing in one with a horseman... I agree. I always keep my hero safe away from the battlefield when fighting multiplayer, and I go for the toughest hero available to me. Since I keep my hero behind...

Re: Troll Changes

http://units.wesnoth.org/1.10/mainline/en_US/Troll%20Warrior.html http://units.wesnoth.org/1.10/mainline/en_US/Great%20Troll.html They're 2 different units, have been so for as long as i remember. Curious. So the level 2 troll can level into a warrior or a great troll? I didn't have a clue. I still...

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

http://www.wesnoth.org/addons/1.8/icons/hunter.png the elven fish hunter is super useless. sometimes when i feel very funny i recruit it but its survival rate compared to damage output is just too ridiculous, even during the "power phase". its incredible it counts as lvl1. when u compare units that...

Troll Changes

Sorry if this comes out as a bit of an ignorant question. I played BfW v1.8.6 and had fought against level 3 trolls that were named "Troll King" and had 25 damage blows, two of them. Now, on upgrading to v1.10.2, I've noticed level 3 trolls are now called "Great Trolls" and have 18 damage, but three...

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

A scout is meant to be mobile and hold villages. If your opponent doesn't have any mages, or any other serious ranged units , then getting rid of ghosts is hard to do. Especially for knalgan alliance. HI, again, not the greatest unit, but they can serve purposes ; they can be used to defend against...

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

When playing KA and seeing ghosts, I recruit thunderers. I think the worst default era unit is the nerfed bat. Useless as a fighting unit, but I am a fan of the bat for their ability to grab villages you wouldn't want to waste a Ghost on. Plus, they make good scouts- information is usually worth mo...

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

Heavy infantry are slow, but rip apart any undead, whilst ulfserkers will destroy mages and most ranged units. Every unit in Wesnoth has its use. Still, they're not great attackers when undead player puts out Ghouls in front- HI do not take well to poison. And they suck against Ghosts. Now the ulf ...

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

As you can probably tell, KA isn't my favourite faction. It's mine... The HI isn't my favorite unit by any means, mostly because of it's speed. The ghost is great once it's upgraded though. :mrgreen: Nothing like having a shadow appear out of nowhere and backstab you to death eh? Fragile units with...

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

For me "The Worst Unit Award" is a fight between ghost and heavy infantry. Both just cost so much given what they achieve. A scout is meant to be mobile and hold villages. If your opponent doesn't have any mages, or any other serious ranged units, then getting rid of ghosts is hard to do. Especiall...

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

Goblin Spearman in Northerners is the most useless for me. He is very fragile, and he does not have ZoC . He can advance with 2 kills, but his level-1 types are relatively fragile(26 or 31). Although he does not need upkeep, 9 gold seems too expensive for a unit with 18 HP and no ZoC. I always use ...

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

WC spam! They are kinda pathetic, aside from plague, which is awesome! :mrgreen: Zombies can actually be pretty effective. You just have to know how to use them; if you're going for a zombie horde (which I don't recommend, since it's kinda boring) one should still recruit some dark adepts to soften...

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

YIA I like making acronyms fo no reason. :D IHA Come on, the thing has 120 hp and does like 74 damage! BTW, I think the Knalgan footpad is a really underated unit. I've attached a replay showing how well hard to hit footpads can withstand northener two-hitters. I think it's a good defensive unit an...

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

I used to hate poachers too, but they have a few advantages over bowmen and indeed most other archers (apart from elvish archers): 4 strikes compared to 3 for bowman gives better ctk against 1 or 2HP units. Relatively few XP required to level up. 2 different levelling choices upon reaching level 3....
