Tips of the Day writing style

Post by Britannicus » June 27th, 2017, 10:56 am

Hi, I've been getting back into BfW after a long absence and while going through the Tips of the Day in the Main Menu, I noticed that a lot of the ones that are "quotes" from characters in the game use in-game language and terms like ZoC and hit chance percentages. This is of course a very small matter, but I feel it would improve the immersion if these tips were either changed to phrases the characters might be using or their "source" change to The Wesnoth Tactical Guide.

I'd second to change that, since I wondered about that more than once.
