Commented replays list

Post by Zaroth » February 2nd, 2011, 9:30 am

Hello there!
Inspired by my recent replay, extensively commented by Velensk, I'd like to make an effort to keep track of useful commented replays, regardless of form. It seems cruel to just let them rot in the depths of the forum, where (almost) nobody looks. Since many players often look on advice how to play a certain match-up, I decided to split this compendium in 36 parts, each with certain one.

This list is supposed to help competetive Wesnoth players to improve their multiplayer skills (but of course the usefulness of the advice isn't limited to them), so I'd like to keep the list mostly free of campaign scenarios commentaries, especially if they're heavily dependent on a particular scenario. However, it doesn't mean that commentaries of matches against AI are discouraged overall - my point is only to limit scenario-dependent advice here. And if you want to find campaign replays commentaries, it's usually much easier to find them using Search function, since they usually have descriptive topic names (which isn't always the case with multiplayer commentaries).

List entries have the following format:
  • (year)-(month) (commenter) (player A) vs (player B) + ev. (vid) - (map) (comments)
This format can occasionally change, when the description becomes too long or when I feel that additional comments are needed. When computer controls one of the sides, his player name is always AI.

Also, please note that Drakes vs Loyalists isn't the same as Loyalists vs Drakes. The former contains advice on how to play Drakes correctly, the latter on playing Loyalists. Since some of them (like most of neki's videos) contain useful advice for both sides, such replays will be listed in both sections.

If you know a commented replay which isn't listed here, PM me. I'll slowly dig through this forum's archives to find the interesting ones, but I don't have an infinite amount of time, you know ;-)

Links to jump to certain parts of the list: Also, please keep in mind that all replays that aren't video replays can't be watched without certain version of Battle for Wesnoth. Here is the list of Wesnoth stable versions with corresponding release years (it's most probable that a replay can be watched on the most recent stable version of Wesnoth at that time): For those not familiar with map names:
Spoiler:
PS If you see a mistake in a description (or you want me to list a replay review that isn't listed here), PM me.

hey, i made a step-by-step comment while playing some time ago on hamlets, the matchup was orcs v drakes.
i took a look at the rp just now and i think the explanation is understandable and good for beginners and advanced players. i explained why i did what with one turn delay. my opponent was argentino.
