Your favorite gold amount?

Post by tvrtko » July 22nd, 2009, 8:54 am

...in even multiplayer games? Mine is 150, no swarming, but a couple more units than 100.

Usually 100 for normal maps and 75 for 3 or 4-recruit fortresses in medium-small maps.

150, a decent sized army without being a horde.

That being said, I often do survivals with 200gp + Age of Heroes, level 2 recruits only.

It's over 9000.

Honestly, when I debug, 9999 is usually what I give myself.

For multiplayer, the default amount. More than the default, even a couple units' worth more, changes the game. For campaigns, the more the better :twisted:

I guess that depends; in Survival Extreme 800 seems to be the rule…

100 for default, 200 for survivals, 800 for SurvivalXtreme...

And for campaigns, I create complicated debug systems that render gold unnecessary.

"For every keep space you may summon one lvl3 unit, but cannot recruit or recall any level 1 or 2 units you have, also each keep space may only be used once to summon or recall a Level 3 unit, meaning each scenario must be done by careful management of an elite team"

And so on and so on. :D
