IMHO the "lancer can't get lvl3 " is one of the sacred cows of Wesnoth, but it is one of the more frustrating ones. A lvl 3 lancer is one of the more frequently contributed ideas, which is often rejected. A lvl 3 lancer wouldn't affect multiplayer balance. It would make lancer a viable cho...

1.3.4 : Descent into Darkness - Return to Hal'al

Since there is no opened topic in the campaign feedback section.

There is a bug in this scenario. There is no turn limit, so you can kill all ennemies, then wait for villages to produce as much gold as you want for the next scenario.

My ideas for great mage AMLA are 2 movment cost max reduced move in some areas (leviation) EDIT: realised someone already suggested it I would say no levitation, no reduced movement cost, no walking on water and , to sum it all, no movement boost. This might be a gamebreaker on many campigns, an d ...

Do you mean a bonus like "opponent not being able to attack a unit in your formation with more than 2 units" ?

If so, it is already implemented

Though I am not an expert, I think that defense is a cheap (extremelly easy to do, extremely hard to counter) tactic. And it is really efficient in matchups that don't favor offense. So in a matchup with neither drakes nor ToD advantage (elfes vs dwarves, UD vs orcs, any non-drake mirror match ...) ...

Additional ideas, from a so so player. First of all lv 2 units, it's hard to get them reliably in MP. So basically when you recruit troll whelps, be aware that they will be ... troll whelps for the whole fight. Initial recruit If I don't know which faction I face I go for 1 assassin 2 grunts 1...

Re: My "worst unit" award

Just a few things you may have forgotten Worst Scout - Bat The bat is just too weak to have any value. He can die on a single round and, when helping finishing a weakened unit, can die in the process. Having the Ghost on the same faction doesn't help... Except the ghost is level 1 vs a level 0 bat. ...

Wanna try

I like wesnoth I would like to try and write a campaign, which would feature dwarves beating the crap out of goblins & dragons. However, before starting such a project I would like to know a few things : - Is the campaign making tool (which I plan to use extensively) considered as "enough&q...

sorry to be a little curious, but as a player who recently discovered Battle for Wesnoth with 1.0.2, I would be really happy if someone could make a light patch notes on balancing changes by factions. Not a complete one but one which would encompass the changes affecting balance most. Things like (i...

To come back on topic, I think that there is one specific thing in Wesnoth that is too hard to be fun while playing campaigns. This is the fact that in any scenario you might be doomed from the beginning without knowing it. Especially if you have insufficient gold/units. Perhaps a "min gold amo...

Just an other suggestion.

The game could keep track of the previous choice you made for this advancement and repeat it.

Last Elf Bowman advanced to ranger => ranger.

It seems KISS enough and somewhat better than "here is your random elvish sorceress"

Tough I am a rother beginner Wesnoth player, I found the "capped at level 2" lancer quite lackluster compared to the knight. A specific and funny idea could be to have the lancer require only 45 XP to level, thereby allowing very frequent max level advancements. The game Disciples II, whic...
