Hello Wesnoth players,

I'm new to the boards, although I've been playing Wesnoth on and off for months. I've gotten through most of the Single Player campaigns, and I've been developing a desire to try out multiplayer. However, I don't know anyone who plays this game, and given how long a game of Wesnoth can take, it seems odd to just go to the servers and find a random person to play a game with. Are there any new players (or experienced players who'd be willing to give a newbie some tips) who are interested in playing a match with me?

I'm also interested in general in how you guys find other players for your games. Do you mostly just play with friends you know in real life, arrange the games over the forums, or just run into people on the server?

People are willing to play the game with almost everyone; finding the game is what the game lobby is for. Just log on, talk to someone, and play a game with them. ;-)

Alright, I'll try that, thanks. One other thing; I am likely to find more players in general in MP playing 1.8.5 or 1.9.3?

1.8 is the stable version, 1.9 is the developmental version. The stable almost always has more people then the developmental. Make sure to keep your version of Wesnoth updated, as it may cause problems for other players and yourself.

Stable Version has all the features that are tested and known not to cause problems with the game (with the exception of a few known bugs, but there being worked on.)

Development contains the new features, not tested fully, but are a nice addition to the game. The development version is slowly migrated too stable as time goes on, and as the features are tested fully. 1.8 has many features introduced in 1.7, but were tested and debugged for play.

Anyways, back to the point, 1.8 contains more players then 1.9, but if you wish to 1.9 has many new features, terrains, and units then 1.8

Hi, I'm Shield. I've been playing Wesnoth for 6 years, but mainly only against myself. I only decided to actually join the forums recently. I look forward to contributing some artwork in the near future. Most likely portraits, I’ll need to learn more on making and frankensteining sprites. So I could possibly help some people with their artwork. (if they need it)

Hiya! I'm Ryaboopsoup. Been playing wesnoth since... i can't even emember when i started, but since I have, I've gotten at least 4 other people interested in it, too. I am currently making a map, modeled after the Hunger Games. It won't be even near that, however, as the max players this game allows is 9, and in the books, they've got 24. but still...
