Under the Burning Suns - no loss playthrough

Postby 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:

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:
