Re: Tynerium - A Wesnoth based game

Very interesting! What do I like about wesnoth huh. Wesnoth is actually very tactical and has been compared to chess in terms of the importance of positioning units. The simplicity of the mechanics leads to easier calculations and makes things easier to balance as well. All levels of strategy exist,...

Re: Dirty Strategies III by igorbat: no formation you have

Thanks for the translation, these can be very fun, lots of them I didn't even think of. Caveat though i would say these are Advanced Dirty Strategies - you can only employ them if you have mastered the Basics of Wesnoth MP at the minimum. This strats are good to try out once you are confident in the...

Re: [Discussion] Fixed Time Tournament

This is perfect time for me for once. I'm in.

Scratch that, sorry I thought it said AM not PM. So it turns out its early morning for me, which sadly I can't do. A pity. Will be watching with interest anyway.

Re: multiplayer - poachers/trappers vs drakes

When you are facing poachers, you are probably facing knalga as a faction. They can be outlaw heavy (that is, mostly chaotic units) or a mix with dwarves. When it comes to drakes, the strategy for the first configuration is overwhelming day attack (poachers can die from 1 drake fighter + 1 anything ...

Re: Unead vs Knalgan Alliance balance

There are generally 2 ways to counter ghost: 1. Superior melee capability - damaging the ghost with powerful melee to overcome even the drain healing. This is most easily done during daytime when melee damage is reduced (and thus drain effect is also reduced), but Orcish Grunts have been known to ki...

Re: On Evaluating of Units' Relative Mobility

Computer_Player, your ideas sound pretty good, however... I see some difficulties in evaluating it. There would be a need for clear-cut factors on how important a specific tile on a specific map is, and those factors would have to be both accurate and easy to understand for the improved formula to ...

Re: Clarifying Recall Mechanics

It works only for campaigns. Edit: Clarification: In default, recalling works only in campaigns. In User Made Content (UMC), this may differ. You can also make it work (as Lord Knightmare said below) if you change some things in the scenarios, or make your own scenarios, but to make it work, you'll...

Re: On Evaluating of Units' Relative Mobility

I like this idea. I was thinking wesnoth gameplay is mature enough that we can create some more complex "Guideline" observations, similar to the 9,5,3, 1 piece valuation in Chess. Ofcourse even in Chess that is more of a guideline (the real value of a unit changes depending on the board st...

Re: Is ghoul poison really poison?

Alternatively, it could be magical in nature and thus not analogous to any real life phenomenon. The process of creating ghouls are a mystery, perhaps close contact with this fell magic such as happens when they claw at victims comes into contact with blood/lifeforce disrupts the person's normal mag...

Re: Multiplayer Replay Analysis

My brother and I played a game which... went a bit long. Several times where I felt I was badly losing, but then instead of losing... I eventually won? So we are sort of curious as to how both of us could improve our play, but also curious as to how my brother should have better capitalized on earl...
