Fun replays (UtBS playthrough and MP games)

Post by nemaara » February 11th, 2018, 2:58 am

I managed to beat Under the Burning Suns without losing a unit. :O

For those who are curious, you can look at the replays below. Admittedly I played some of these while very sleepy so there might be some turns where the play is a bit erratic/doesn't make sense, but whatever. :whistle:

You can look at the replays below.

Well, I had a little bit of luck, and it was mostly just the fact that I've played this campaign a looot of times, so I know pretty much all the tricks. :lol:

Wow, that's awesome! :shock: 8)
I didn't think it was possible either. Looking back at my own UtBS playthrough, turns out I had gotten 33 poor elves needlessly slaughtered. :whistle:

That Battle of Zocthanol Isle replay was just amazing! I had a lot of trouble with that scenario with high level enemies everywhere, all the poison and all the stupid bats spawning right on top of you, but you just tore right through them all!

Really great playing, thanks for sharing!

Thanks, and sorry to hear about your poor elves... :lol:

I thought that the Battle of Zocthanol was actually pretty easy; the one I usually have the most trouble on is Stirring in the Night, since I usually try to not lose any villages (or maybe just 1, coz I'm greedy :whistle:). The other tricky one is A Subterranean Struggle, mostly since the elves have terrible defense on cave. I'm ashamed to say that I failed the no loss play the first time I played on it and had to reload the scenario. :oops:

MP games with shadowm

Post by nemaara » March 24th, 2018, 7:01 am

Guess I'm turning this into a dump for all my replays that might be fun to share... :lol:

I played 2 games with shadowm on the 1.13 dev server today, which you can find below. They were played on 1.13.12, so you'll probably need that version of wesnoth to view them properly. Have fun watching our games! ^_^

Thanks for sharing the replays. I never play multiplayer but liked seeing it. Have to confess, i have no idea what shadowm was trying to do in the elf vs human one. On the whole the fights remind me of Brave Sir Robin. Just a lot of ... retreating to strategically advantageous positions :D
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Playing Wesnoth since 2010, still there is so much left to play

Not only has shadowm not played MP in forever, but I also got some training from Elder, so don't bully her >:(. :lol:
