1047. you fight with your brother, punch him twice, and say that you did 4-2 damage to him ( happened to me today ).

1049) You write your history report on Konrad and the story in HttT
1050)When you see people with beards you wonder why they're so tall
1051) You set yourself to auto-move so you don't forget to bring in the washing
1052) You wonder how much experience it'll take for you to level up
1053) You wonder what you'll level into
1054) You check your unit description and find out^^
1055) When something goes wrong in life you blame the RNG, then you right click and turn off luck
1056) You remember the post asking whether scissors did pierce or blade damage.
1057) You decide they do both, and give a presentation in science based on it.
1058) You decide you get 70% defence on your computer chair, so you tend to stay there for long periods of time.
1059) You start to hate Geography, because everybody draws Wesnoth incorrectly.
It's all about timing...
or such?

1060) You've played long enough to remember a screenshot like this.
1061) Or really you haven't and instead spent hours searching for old screenshots because you would have wanted to have played when the game looked like this.
A Screenshot Like This:
Compare to the Modern Day:

Unit tree and stat browser

1062. You've been around long enough to remember that until there were changes to the gold carryover system, it used to be very easy to rack up over 1000 gold in some campaigns. ;)

Hehe. Actually, thinking about it, I think I did rank up over a thousand gold at one point... maybe... It was a lot at any rate. :)

*sighs* It's been too long since I played. Which begs the question, what am I doing in a thread about having played Wesnoth too long? :?

1063. You recall that Northern Rebirth probably still generates enough gold to go over 1000 easily even if it was rebalanced under new gold rules.
1064. You can complete Northern Rebirth on Nightmare.

1065: You pitty the person who can play Nightmare, because you've probably played as long as him, but still can't beat easy...

1066: You download the oldest version of Wesnoth available for your platform.

A good point, and makes for a good one.

1067. You can complete all of the mainline campaigns on the hardest difficulty, and have done so through the multiple changes they have undergone.

1069) You remember campaigns like 'Civil War' and 'Elf War' (1 and 2)
1070) You miss Elf War
1071) You wonder what happened to Elf War
1072) You attempt to remake Elf War...(and fail)

1074. You note, a little sadly, that Dave is already married.
