How long was your longest match?

Post by tvrtko »

Singleplayer or multiplayer, no campaigns. Mine was around 2 and a half hour vs 4 ai enemies. Don't remember the map. Edit: survivals included.

6 days. Saving and loading. 2-3 hours a day.
We had someone different for side 3 every single day but sides 1 and 2 were me and Cmonyiman. 4 was xxx_cz. Oh those were the days.

Offline I've played a single game saving and loading for 3 and a half weeks.

Off hand... four hours for a 2v2 game on Paths of Daggers, spread over two evenings. And we didn't even finish it; one team resigned.

It's silly to compare real-time durations of different game modes, though. The more players, the longer it'll take. If there's no time limit, it'll take longer. Survival games seem to last forever.

They should be called "player survival games".

In one session, probably more than ten hours playing Brotherhood of Light. We didn't finish.

In more than one session, probably about 3 days with 5+ hours each playing Becephalus's massive Westaros (sp?) map.

I have not played one, but I have seen players playing the World Conquest maps and it takes them multiple sessions as well, easily hours and hours.

I used to play Pilgrims of Orocia with a user who is not around anymore, and that easily took a few hours.

About 7-8 hours on a Brotherhood of Light match with my friend, we played it from 7:45 to around 10:30 three nights in a row...

We also reached Turn 403.

A whole afternoon... around 5-6 hours.
That was kind of a tutorial match, though, I was personally training a friend who just bumped in Wesnoth. Plus, connection problems.

Lol, all that waiting to eventually lose the game, anyway XD

Well, I've played a couple 5-6 hour 3vs3.

Several 3-4 hour 2vs2.

And a couple of 3-4 hour 1vs1.

Those would probably be my longest.

I can't recall. My longest would probably be on the Brotherhood of Light map, but since that's a very unusual map I don't know that it counts.

I had one match on Isar's Cross recently that went fairly long. It stands out in my memory because the game dragged on despite the small size of the map.

my longest was total a 2 week match, playing 3-4 hrs per day. it was a 9 player FFA with 8 computer players. the map was 100x100, 5gp per village, 800 starting gold, +18 income. i did it because i just got a new computer and wanted to test out how far i could push wesnoth on it and because i just wanted to see a bunch of carnage. ended up using about 1.5GB of RAM, dealt over 100,000 damage, and killed several thousand units.

Longest standard mutiplayer match I've played was seven hours 2 vs 2 all in one go. I won it I think.

I once played with a friend locally, for a 3 days, and about 4 hours a day. I won in the end. :D
