IMO, the northern performance during the fight are smaller to the rest of the factions. And they do not improve much during the night... :roll:

A better question is, can you be more explicit? :?

Wesnoth's factions have been rather painstakingly ballanced. While ballancing is ongoing, it's going to take much more than a vauge assertion to get a whole faction overhauled. If you have specific information, you might at least get the conversation going. But be sure of your facts, and make sure you are playing the latest development version. It's possible the flaw you percieve was already fixed.

This thread actually inspired me to start a thread in Multiplayer, suggesting that if anyone thinks that they lost (or won) because a faction is over/underpowered, that they ask to play a game with the factions reversed. That usually solves the question rather simply. Well, not usually too simply, because some factions are easier to use. The faction that lost might still lose in the hands of a good player, but it won't get routed quickly.
Don't go to Glowing Fish for advice, he will say both yes and no.

I play with northeners all the time, I win around 8 of ten games I play. I find that I cannot win with loyalists, however I have been beaten black and blue by people playing loyalists..... perhaps it is just a matter of playing style... I find that northeners work well for aggressive, offensive tactics and all the core units have really great upgrade trees.
I find the northeners to be well balananced.

Northerners are not unbalanced. Remaking the entire faction is not urgent, or even mildly pressing, or even an issue at all. There may be mild issues with some factions, I will not make the claim that the game is perfectly balanced. But it's not as bad as you seem to think it is.

I am not a player very experienced but I have played approximately 10 times with Northern (are not my favorites) and only in 2 or 3 opportunities I observed certain parity -random perhaps? - with other factions. Obvious the tactics influence.

@Rey
it has nothing to do with your English, plenty of us are not native-speakers.
It has more to do with: why do you ACTUALLY think Northerners need rebalancing? What were the specific facts that made you feel that way? Can you provide us with examples? Replays? Anything to narrow down the perceived problem, because "Northerners need rebalancing" is an absolutely useless statement, in that it doesn't help at all understanding why you think that way.
Hard work may pay off in the long run, but laziness always pays off right away.

Admirable indeed, Doc. Not one of your alter egos has manifested itself thus far.

The northerners don't need any re balancing at all, their units are perfectly fine, and rather good.

Ok, I observed that "unbalancing" in special in the trolls (IMHO): attacking or defending at night (+25 as all know) usually they lose many more HP than the damage that do -being above in favorable land: 50%/70%-. That I observed more versus elves, dwarves and undeads (even with the night favoring them :? ). Later I have played (always online) with another faction (elves or loyalist) and have more favorable results without a doubt some.
