The most overused and the most underused faction

Post by CoolDude » January 6th, 2011, 1:29 am

underused is not underpowered,and overused is not overpowered.keep that in mind.


i think the most used one is elves and the drakes ones is the less used.

There isn't really a reliable way to determine that, and the statistics most probably change constantly. :| But were I to take a guess, I'd say that loyalists are the most used and drakes the least used.

But again, that's just a random guess, and not based on any factual evidence of any sort.

...

And just wondering, what difference does it make which faction is more/less used? :hmm:

You cant really determine that. What happens if you are appart of the wesnoth community who picks 'random' in every game like myself...

Something original: Most used would IMO probably be Elves. It's the 'beginner faction', and the first time I played in multiplayer people asked me why I, a beginner, wasn't using Elves.

I've only been playing this past week, but as has been said an overwhelming majority of my opponents have just chosen random.

the idea is to say what faction you used/fought against most,and you least used/fighten against.even on ramdoms can be.

I would say most used faction is random.

My favourite factions are elves and undead, although when playing WC-NM by myself I will use Loyalists, Elves, and Undead, so I suppose for me they are my overused factions.

My least favourite (and therefore least used) faction are the drakes. I hate their low defenses, despite their extremely potent attacking skills.

I dont think he meant random, he was asking for those who do not choose random.. Drakes would be my thought as the least chosen when not random.

If it is not random I don't choose Knalgans. I think they are the most difficult faction to play.
And I don't like Loyalists because they are boring.

I generally random, and curse a bit if I get drakes. They're just not my style. :cry:

That's pretty much the case with most other people I know as well. Not many intentionally use the drakes. As far as most used, I'd have to say it's the Rebels. Possibly the Loyalists, but not likely.

Despite going random, I seem to get rebels fairly often, then probably loyalists and drakes.

Knalgans I don't mind so much, depending on the opponent.

I cannot stand getting either chaotic faction though. It infuriates me to no end having to play like an ulf on hard-core drugs because both of them have to play hyper-aggressive to win, unless you can get away with lv 0 spam.
