Hello Wesnoth board!

I was eyeballing Battle for Wesnoth in the app store for a couple months now and when it went on sale for .99 I picked it up. I am very happy I did and a bit sad I never knew about this game.

I used to play various RTS games back in the golden age of Blizzard.

Wesnoth is awesome!

Here is a big hat-tip and warm thank you to the developers and the community as a whole.

I look forward to playing some of you on MP once I finish HttT.

Thanks again for making such a great game.

best regards,
mrblack

Hello mrblack

I'm interested to hear that you paid for Wesnoth, not that I wouldn't, just that I didn't know people did.

Wishing you many happy hours playing downloading campaigns (hopefully that won't take hours) and perhaps one day making your own.
...apparenly we can't go with it or something.

Having never heard of Wesnoth I had passed it up on the App Store (iPod) for a long time. About a week or so ago I saw it on sale for a buck and gave it a whirl.

After I found this site a few days ago I was amazed when I saw that this excellent game is available as a free download. This has to be one of the most balanced strategy games I've ever played.

Thanks for the welcome folks!

Welcome to the Wesnothians' community mrblack!
Hope you enjoy the game
and post sensible stuff
and make interesting art/WML contributions...
Wait, I'm boring you. I'd better stop.

You are aware that you can be easily Private Messaged in-forum? :wink:

Just giving various people your e-mail can result in some serious bad things...

Hi mrblack :)

I suggest to you to learn playing a 1vs1 againist human players or againist the AI. I must notice you the AI is not very smart but it get lucky frequently.
