You are coming off as yet another newbie with boundless enthusiasm posting things apparently for the sake of doing so. This may not be a problem for you but in any case refrain from calling people names just because they don't share in it nor apprecaite it. As a side note, you might want to find a project to work on to turn that enthusaism into something useful and/or give yourself a purpose for being on the forum. The primary purpose of the forum is in general the development of the game and content for the game with secondary functions such as giving advice to new players and giving a place for people to post questions and the like. Not that one cannot use it for more social purposes but if so we encourage that to be done in the off topic area.

For the purpose of being on topic, I'm rather fond of the knalgans and drakes.

Thank you for your mildly constructive criticism. Being new to the forums does not mean being new to the Wesnoth community. I hope nobody holds that against people here, and wont call them "newbies" just because they just joined. Isn't the point of forums supposed to be having discussions on the topics of Wesnoth? Please people, don't put criticism on a page that is not for that topic. Thanks

It's not the being a newbie thats a problem, (in fact, being a newbie looking for advice is one of the good reasons to be here) it's the enthusastic but purposeless "hey! let's talk about the game because we like to talk about it! I don't care that you've already generally talked about it and that this particular discussion won't get anyone anywhere I want you to post in my thread anyway dammit!" that you're doing. It dosn't rub the right way with many people here, especially those focused on the practical.

Ok. I don't see how a discussion about peoples favorite factions is a bad idea. Maybe if people get to learn about others favorite factions they will be more inclined to try out the others.

Almost all competitive wesnoth players play random. Others will either experiment or they won't and I don't see how hearing that other factions are peoples favorites will change this. Every faction is someones favorite and does it really matter who happens to prefer what to anyone?

EDIT: I should say, almost all good compeditive wesnoth players.

Criticism of users (except by moderators' discretion) should be done in PMs.

I know that this thread's topic has been done to death - over and over and over and over again- and a lot of you veteran forum users are sick of seeing it, but think about this for a second: what is someone who wants to talk about it supposed to do? Necro-post?

So cut him some slack. Please.

Don't play MP much, only local games with myself to see how units in an era/faction work/play.

If I had to pick a favorite unit, it would probably have to be the Dwarvish Runesmith line. They're awesome. :D

Dwarves in general are pretty cool too.

Being a newbie is great! You don't get punished for accidently braking rules. :D

powershot... just...

I suppose that mentality would explain your behavior in the past, though I suppose you know just as well that you're not much of a 'newbie' anymore.

Anyways- favorite faction has probably got to be the Rebels, for their multipurpose usage and neutral alignment. The only real drawback is that sometimes I forget the Wose/Mage exists, which puts a crutch in going up against Undead!Random.

Favorite unit though has to be the Fire Dragon. That amazing sprite. Amazingly amazing sprite.

Seeing as powershot has been banned from the art forums, you might want to take what he said as absolute truth.

Powershot: I feel as though that had nothing to do with the actual point of the thread. :|

Anyway, my favorite faction is the Kharos from the Era of Magic and my favorite unit would be the Outlaw's Shadow Lord.
