LoW Costly Revenge - impossible?

Post by madamx » November 29th, 2018, 3:35 am

Is it just me, or has this scenario become goddam unwinable in recent versions? I played this a couple years ago and got through it after 2-3 tries. It seems to be just about impossible now. I've tried different strategies - high, low, stand & fight, flank - and even after I got both kings and all of the towns, there were still so many lizards that they simply overran my survivors on the edge of the NW forest. And, this is on Easy. What the hell?

As you've played the campaign before, and know what happens in the next scenarios, did you distribute the experience points from the previous scenarios based on that knowledge? In other words, are the units that you have in Costly Revenge much weaker than they would be if you'd played normally?

I've only played the campaign once, but was aware of what happens afterwards, and had fed the xp to my troops based on that knowledge; consequently I got stuck at this scenario.
