My first time through, I had *no* advanced units.

I tried to play on older versions of Wesnoth, like the 0.4.5, and it seems it was much more difficult to level up with those versions (and units were incredibely expensive! 28 for an elvish archer!).

Even more amusing are the graphics on the "ancient screenshots". They're at the bottom. :P

Wow. From older to 7.x it looks and feels so tabletop-ish.

What are those "healthy" tags under the names?.

Grr. It is 0.7.x, not 7.x! There is a HUGE difference! ;)

What does AMLA stand for? Abbreviating stuff makes it much harder to understand what you are going on about.

No problem, I found it with a search: After Max Level Advancement. Thats a really obscure thing to be abbreviating. People should take a couple of seconds and type the whole thing out.

One thing that confused me is that some levels are a LOT easier if you have advanced units. And to get advanced units faster, normal level is important.

Then again there seem to be some levels which are EXTREMELY hard even on easy (or normal).

Its a bit strange, because there are really scenarios where normal is easier than easy, since you have more, and many of them, advanced units. :)


There is this level where you are in a cave, and level 2 undead units come from the north (there are tentacles in the middle).
This was really a LOT easier when i played it again, i had about 4 of those white mages (either level 2 or 3). Was a huge difference.

Btw i dont complain, i just point at it without a good or bad opinion. (Well i like normal more than easy nowadays though. I am still not sure about hard, hard seems to be easy sometimes, and extremely unfair in other situations...)

And, uh, that's a really dumb thing to (semi-)resurrect a thread about... plus, although it is obscure to people who are not regular forum-goers, it is well known to people who are, it is probably used in a large percentage of posts, and having it acronymized actually makes it easier to read, once you know what it means. ;)

So, uh, why were you resurrecting this thread in the first place?

now THAT is the question that will NEVER be answered.

similar to "Whhat were you thinking?!" but we know wy thats never answered don't we?

(if the answer is no, you are incapable of thought, and you must get asked that question a lot.)
Oh no look out its a ray gun.
You should move to avoid the rays
the rays are coming out of the gun
if you are hit by the rays
you will be shot by the rays
the rays are fast so you should be fast to
can you win against the fast rays from the gun?

On the one hand 10 days without a post is hardly a long time based on the activity of these threads, you might get half a dozen new posts on a good day, nothing to get excited about.

Acronyms should only be used if the full version of the term has already been used in the thread, for example like this: After Max Level Advancement (AMLA). If people just jump into a new thread, toting their fancy, obscure new acronym without so much as a by your leave, they shouldn't be surprised if they get some blank looks.

I happen to think that forums should be welcoming for newcomers, not an acronym infested nightmare, suitable only for those denizens able to keep up with the latest gibberish.

I absolutely REJECT the notion that obscure acronyms can in any way make a post easier to read, even for the initiated. I think you are mistaking "easier to read" with "faster to type".

I may open a "name and shame" thread in the general section for the particularly bad perpetrators (Elvish Pillager made a horrible one, anyone able to guess what "worship CTK" might mean?).

In summary, CHANGE your ways and DROP the obscure acronyms! Its IMPORTANT!

This has been a public service anouncement.

Thankyou.


And thinking about it, After Max Level Advancement doesn't even make any frikkin' sense in the first place. How is it possible to "advance" beyond the max level? As soon as advancement beyond the previous highest level is made possible, is stops being the "Max" level by definition!

I see your logic. We reject 1337 and all junior versions of it, yet we have our own version of it here!

Then again, any specialized field has its own jargon, of which acronyms are an acceptable part. If you were an aspiring future-doctor, would you get mad if you went to a doctor party and they were using a bunch of doctor-talk in conversation?

About part 2, be charitable. If AMLA did not violate the logic of not advancing past the max level, it wouldn't need a special term to describe it. It's advancement that does not result in a higher level number. Sub-max level advancement is just known as 'advancement', but once you're at max level, you do not experience 'advancement' as it was formerly known, you experience a different type of advancement, termed AMLA.
Hope springs eternal.

We need a "things you should read before registering" large and big in the front forums to help everyone adapt better to the community.

This would be a way to make someone fit easier if he/she didn't do the common protocolar lurking before registering.
