Re: Ages / Expanded races unused

Not gonna happen. We pride mainline on being carefully and accurately balanced. Wholesale adding of things which we know are not balanced is not going to happen, art issues aside (and for most of the expansions, the art issues are large). We're currently considering adding one extra faction to main...

Re: Unsolicited Praise

What I find even more impressive is that each unit line has a logical sprite progression: it is easy to see how a Knight was once a Horseman and so forth. The only unit line that does not seem quite as logical is the Orcish Archer line: the L1 guy is so much smaller than the Grunts that he "reads" ...

Re: Problems with Gold and the Leveling System in BfW?

I just want to agree with Velensk; I'm sure many people might save-scum/de-bug mode their way to victory in campaigns, but that's beside the point. The point is that campaigns CAN be beaten without aformentioned tactics(provided player skill is high enough for difficulty) and that it is one's own ch...

Re: Problems with Gold and the Leveling System in BfW?

Never mind save loading, did you beat all those campaigns without having to go back and redo a previous scenario, on your first playthrough? Because it sounds like you're entirely ignoring the point of the discussion, in favor of assuming the participants aren't good at Wesnoth :( I couldn't redo a...

Re: Problems with Gold and the Leveling System in BfW?

It can see where you're coming from, but from my experience with Wesnoth, most every scenario can be beaten without too many resources from prior scenarios and without save-scumming. And of course, this depends on your actual skill as a player and the difficulty of the scenario. The campaigns I've f...

Re: Orcs, orcs, orcs

I certainly feel like the SotBE orcs have a Klingon-ish sense of honour, but very much on the brutal side of things. And they're definitely not above underhanded tactics. Have to agree here with spaceinvader. Your description makes them seem far too one dimensional. Orcs in wesnoth have not always ...

Re: Why it is difficult to be good at Wesnoth

Let's not forget the power of human emotion. I can't tell you how many battles I've lost/nearly lost because of a temporary flare of anger when my enemy made a succesful attack, and my desire to 'get back' and make up for my losses kicked in and I led an unsuccesful attack that often resulted in my ...

In general, you'll find that the better you get at the game, the smaller role luck plays. :)

Re: 1v1 Replays! (THE ARCHIVE)

in this game i lost against orcs, but it was so awesome that i had to post it ! Nice match! You were definetely destroying him till he got your leader at the end there. A couple points- Interesting initial recruit; I might try recruiting more mermen on that map The best part of the match was when h...

Re: The Modern Multiplayer Map Reader's Digest

I second adding a forward keep to SD. There's just too much distance between the keeps and makes it too easy to defend.

Re: 1v1 Replays! (THE ARCHIVE)

but nice game it seems. usually those duellists are NOT so lucky :) Indeed. But they are definetely more useful on maps like HGB, as opposed to maps like Freelands or Weldyn channel, where the different fronts of battle are divided, the villages are further back, and your leader is at your keep, in...

Re: 1v1 Replays! (THE ARCHIVE)

I played against someone earlier today, in a ladder match, Random Orcs(me) vs Loyals on HGB. After winning, I found out the person I just beat wasn't even part of the ladder. :annoyed: The person himself was a bit annoying, but his initial recruit of three fencers I thought was interesting. While no...

Re: Why aren't stupid Knalgans still strengthened ?!

Drakes - inherent low defense makes them a great target for thunderers (due to bad pierce resistance of drakes a thunderer can get something like 25 damage in one blow. Poachers are nice too, as are guardsmen. Drake player reacts and recruits lots of saurians? Fighter, Thief, Footpad and Gryphon ar...
