Re: Most difficult campaigns?

So... there is right now a way to beat save port scenario with average RNG in time? Do you mean SotBE: Black Flag? This is the scenario where enemy ships come in and unload a bunch of troops behind your lines, when you already were about to get overrun. On nightmare, it now has 22 turns (under 1.11...

Re: Most difficult campaigns?

I second the nomination for Son of the Black Eye being the toughest mainline campaign now under 1.11. The campaign was tweaked by mattsc, whose design philosophy is to make nightmare difficulty actually be a nightmare. Here are the difficulty ratings (1-10) I gave for the scenarios in the campaign: ...

Re: NR-Infested Caves - Clear the Caves, Min. Gold, Nightmar

Sorry for the brain fart. I called Infested Caves the hardest scenario of any mainline campaign, and I had more than minimum gold, so good job.

Re: NR-Infested Caves - Clear the Caves, Min. Gold, Nightmar

I beat it with min gold on nightmare, no save-reloads, version 1.9.4: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=20358&start=15#p477500 Northern Rebirth is my least favorite campaign, suffering from too much "counter pushing". Clear the Caves involves stalemate lines and long treks to villages f...

Re: Good playing habits and settings each turn

Before you hit "end turn" (control-space), identify your most vulnerable units. If you're playing the AI, then you can try to predict which of your units will be attacked first. The first attacked are usually the ones the AI thinks it can kill, but another possibility is powerful units that can't fi...

Re: The Rise of Wesnoth: Rise of Wesnoth

(1) Level and version? hard, 1.11.16, 430 starting gold (200 is minimum.) (2) Difficult? 9.5, I had to replay the previous scenario for more gold. ~338 was not enough. (3) Objectives? Clear. (4) Dialog? The plot strains credibility, but doesn't quite break it, so it's good. (5) Challenges? Phew, I ...

This is not an easy scenario with minimum gold, but I made the most of my gold by recruiting some Peasants, who advanced rapidly. One almost made...
