Re: Affably Evil

Hi! I've recently started to play this campaign, I should admit I like the story and dialogues but have two things to complain. First of all, it took me some time to understand that I should move across different locations as in LotI's Akula dungeon, it's not clear for some reason, no tip about it. ...

Re: Scenario 1: The Hunt

1) Wesnoth 1.14.5, WoV 1.0.3, Aspirant (Challening) 2) 3 3) fine 4) too prolonged. It's easy to make Galun 2-lvl, but killing outlaws is very hard in forest. Mostly I just waited for turn running out 5) 3 6) Maybe a size of map itself is not a big issue but I think having an opportunity to finish ea...

Re: Scenario 11: Fire Meets Steel

1) Wesnoth 1.14.5, WoV 1.0.3, Aspirant (Challening) 2) 9 3) fine 4) this is a really difficult scenario! Dwarves have lots of gold, terrain and neutrality. When you have usual Drake poor defences, a prolonged night during the winter. Berserkers can kill even Armaggedon at night, they are so devastat...

1) Wesnoth 1.14.5, WoV 1.0.3, Aspirant (Challening) 2) 6 3) fine 4) spiders are very tough even for 3-lvl drakes 5) 7 6) First few times I tried the scenario Undead recruited Shadows which are invisibles and hit very hard. But next tries the opponent stopped doing this. I think that Shadows should b...

Re: recommended campaign sequence

Liberty was tricky with the first scenario with Goblin pillagers. After this scenario it has more common gameplay

Re: Which faction do you think is the most difficult to play?

Speaking on topic, most of people consider drakes to be the most difficult to play well. It's because their drake units have low defence , high cost, and get damaged really easily when saurian units have distressfully low hp

Re: Which faction do you think is the most difficult to play?

Hm, I'm not an expert at any means but I've read that poison is useful in defence, especially against melee-oriented factions: trying to dislodge a ghoul they poison lots of units and became weaker during your next assault

Re: Became better

Why don't you try playing a couple campaigns all the way through? Playing against the computer is different than playing against a human, but many of the skills really do transfer. Also, nobody sees it when you lose, so your pride stays intact! Choose the highest difficulty that you can win--even i...

Re: [POLL] What is the best drake campaign in your opinion?

By now I've played only "A Fiery Birth" and I like it. Will try "Wings of Victory" next time

Re: [help] Increase multiplayer numbers?

I agree absolutely about adding new modes. There's some different modes now: survival, MP campaigns, the Auction-X map (leaderkill but at the beginning the central player harasses all the others). And I think that getting more is undoubtfully a good way to make game better.

Re: Why do I always get defeated by AI so easily?

Turn 5, you've formed a defensive line, but it's a line on 40% def. Your leader with L3 leadership is next to L3 units. My Drakes have 40% almost everywhere. Only Suars have 60%, but they are weak. Do you think I should form this 40% def line near my base? Turn 7, the Nagas have 0 gold, 8 income an...

Re: [help] Increase multiplayer numbers?

Adding new units is a double-edged thing. Developers should take care of balance, users should learn how to play for and againts a new faction. There's the Ageless Era with tons of units and I don't like it much, at least it was my first impression. Adding maps, however, could be quite a good idea, ...

Re: Why do I always get defeated by AI so easily?

Eh, troubles again, in the last scenario :( Seems easy but somehow enemies are crashing me. My Drakes have so many hp and attack but somehow they just die. I tried to defeat Naga with all my forces and use two Drakes and Sootsayer to hold Outlaws. But even with Naga being defeated Orcs are just atta...

The fate of the Hammer of Thursagan?

Hi all! Recently I've finished "The Hammer of Thursagan" campaign. I've done it on 1.14.5, I know that the last level is changed in later versions but don't know about the epilogue. The thing that disappointed me most of all is that the epilogue doesn't tell the fate of the Hammer. Was the Hammer de...
