Casting a Wesnoth game with Hardwood - Danniel_BR (Rebels) vs Caritas (Northerners)

Post by rosecryptodotcom » June 3rd, 2019, 12:05 am

Hey guys! I run a YouTube channel and a Twitch stream where I play games like Wesnoth. Last night Hardwood (a skilled Wesnoth player!) got on stream with me and we casted an old 1.12 game together. Here's the link - enjoy!

We casted another game - this one between Krogen (Loyalists) and Diggy (Northerners): https://youtu.be/su88FREOEl8

PS: we will be regularly casting Wesnoth games at around 4pm EST on my Twitch ( twitch.tv/malcolmrosegaming ) every Friday. Enjoy!

It was a really epic game, thanks for casting it.

It seems you could rename the thread now :) The quality of the previous video was higher, isn't it? (I watched on youtube). I felt like units are moving too fast. It is possible to change the speed in Preferences -> General -> Accelerated speed (0.75 or 0.5) The content itself is brilliant! :D

Could you comment on the eager village grabbing by the leader in the beginning? My assumption - it is Diggy's style, you knew that and mirrored him to have the same advantage?

At turn 21 you exposed your leader to lvl 2 Troll and Naga. It was a mistake or you decided to risk and set a trap for those lvl 2 units?

No, it's the meta on Swamp of Dread to go for that village with the leader. Especially as P1. Not doing it wouldn't change much, i had to retreat at first watch anyways.
Risking the leader was a mistake. Kill chance was around 50%, but looking back at it i already made a comeback at that point, so shouldn't have risked that.
By the way i commented under the video, where i react to many of the things said, these ones included.

Great! Your comments are extremely valuable. One of the coolest moments of the previous cast was your explanation why Caritas moved Wolf Rider near the Elvish Scout standing at the village (in order to stop him from moving to the keep and blocking new recruits).
