OT
I actually used the AI's tendency to not attack units 2 points of EXP from levelling up to stop the brown player from attacking me in the last level of THoT by position Ratheln, who had 218 out of 220 EXP, in a choke point.
1014 actually happened to me - some of my TvTropes avatars are Wesnoth units. That said...
1020. You've been playing Wesnoth since v1.0 and you realise that that's quite a time playing the same game. (-Whistles innocently-)
I'm not really around any more, but you can find me in TvTropes.

Alright everyone, here goes:

1021: you've been playing Wesnoth since v1.0 and realize that it gets redundant.
1022: This is how people eventually feel on the forums.
1023: I now feel like this when an "upper ranking person" decides to act like a tool by singling you out and showing their narrow intelligence (you know who you are).
1024: I now feel like this when a "superior" says something totally stupid.
1025: you've been playing Wesnoth since v1.0 and realize that it gets redundant.

1026: ...you are so offended by this thread that you actually post here if you have nothing to say on topic, but just rant how boring that thread has become.

...er...

1027: ...you never stopped playing version 0.1 (the very first version, see shadowmaster's "Wesnoth Evolution" essay), as upgrading would have meant that you had to stop playing Wesnoth.
After far too long an absence, I have returned.
According to the quiz 100% Silver Mage (85% Archmage, 75% Shyde, 67% Flameheart and Ancient Wose,58% Assassin, Troll Warrior and Berserker). And my top score is exactly how I see myself.

1029 - It's over 30 degrees hot in your country, and all you can think of is: "Yay, playing wesnoth with opened windows!"

1030 - It's over 35 degrees celsius outside and you replay all scenarios where Frozen is the most frequent terrain type in order to get the warmth away from your mind. Or it's minus twenty outside, and you play UtBS to avoid thinking about the cold.
1031 - You're fed up with wesnoth, but instead of playing something else, you start making innovative campaigns.
1032 - You're not afraid of sorcery because you're human and have arcane resistance.
1033 - If you post in the ideas forum and your suggestion gets accepted.
1034 - If you don't ask any salary at job, because you haven't been promoted yet and level 0s have no upkeep.

suggestions:start playing flash games
Flash games :augh: How can candy crush compare to Wesnoth? That's just for people without the skill or will to actually install games.


This happened to me yesterday after some coding:
1038 - It's 1:00 am and you realise that you had no dinner... and not because you feel hungry, but because something doesn't fit into the usual routine.

... you get home from a party, it's 4 am and despite you are drunk and need some rest you start playing BfW and you beat ATotB without recruiting and without losing a singel unit.
