This was the funniest thread I have read in a long time. I particularly liked Grand Moff Tarkin's contribution.

Putting a cavalryman vs against a clasher alone isn't so bright. Having a troup of calverymen on the flanks to rush in, plug gaps, take out the odd stuborn unit, or deliver one of those last hits is a good stratagy agaisnt any race. For loyalists they are better then horsmen because they are cheeper, better at holding ground, and more resistant to blade - which most drakes with the exception of clashers use.
So, let me get this straight- An Elder Noob wants to face me 1v1 on a 4-player map ( :P ), thinking that he'll destroy me and convince me that he's actually better at Wesnoth?
:roll: Sorry, I ment 'Charge'. And as far as being better at Wesnoth, time will tell, if you aren't too much of a chicken that is.
Why don't you save yourself the humiliation by doing a 1v1 with yourself in which you try using mostly Cavalrymen against mostly Clashers (as it was in the game I saw). Post up the replay, if you wouldn't mind.


Does this mean that you are chickening out? And FYI, he had about 2 fighters, 1 or 2 burners and about 2 or 3 clashers. I had recruited 4 calverymen in the initial round for scouting and village grabing (wich you wern't there to see btw), and after that I was recruiting primaraly spearmen and archers. Like I said before, I was using them as a reserve force, to guard the flanks, plug the gaps and deliver the odd killing blow.

Why would anybody like to use a ridiculous spear if you have got a pwnzing blade attack???

Out of curiousity, about how long ago did this match occur, and who was it against?

P.S.

Tony is even better than Big Lizard. I wouldn't provoke him if I were you.

P.P.S.

Buying Cavalrymen instead of Spearmen/Horsemen, knowing that you're facing Drakes, is pretty silly most of the time. I would almost go so far as to say that no good player would let you get away with it. :wink:

You can't seriously think you're good recruiting like that....

Did Taurus seriously just challenge Doc Paterson to a duel? :? That doesn't seem like the smartest course of action to me...

I think so. (It would be totally awesome if Taurus won, haha, but I doubt that Paterson will play.)

It's not too bad if it's a large map with 2+ GPV.

Right, Paterson only plays Tekken and Go Fish.

Oh, so this Tony Almedia guy is one of your aliasis. Damn, I remember someone mentioning something at the time. Interesting. So are we on?

Why? If he is 'so good' why doesen't he play? It would help to send a clear message to 'elder newbies' like me :-P.

I am unconvinced.

I get away with it all the time. Or maby it's just that I have never met such an 'expert' player like yourself before :wink:
